Exceeded expectations. Awesome room and food”

Beautiful room, fine Japanese cuisine with breakfast and dinner served in-from, wonderful hot spring spa

The hotel was easy to reach from Tokyo station by Shinkansen bullet train, then change to bus at Karuizawa for a scenic drive into the mountains. The hotel staff was warm and welcoming on arrival. English was limited but acceptable...extremely attentive and friendly staff. My spacious room had a beautiful view of the surrounding town, mountains, and a small waterfall. I was surprised and impressed by the quality of the in-room served dinner and breakfast. This was not ordinary Japanese food...every meal was fine cuisine, beautifully presented by a friendly hostess wearing a kimono. Food of this quality would be found in an expensive restaurant...likely around $100 USD per person. Certainly the finest dining experience I have had in any hotel anywhere. Kusatsu is one of Japan's top 3 "onsen" hot spring towns, and it didn't disappoint. Much to my surprise, the "sakura" cherry blossom season in the mountains was at it's peak during Golden Week in early May, long after the season ended in Tokyo. Cherry blossoms were everywhere, enhancing the beauty of the hotel and the town. There's much to see in Kusatsu, including the public hot spring bath in a nearby park. Highly recommended! The spas in the hotel were excellent and refreshing. I'm glad I included Kusatsu in my Japan holiday, and give Kusatsu Onsen Boun my highest recommendation! It's not the cheapest "ryokan" hotel in Kusatsu, but worth it. I will stay there again.

Beautiful Hotel, Great service and good facilities

Hotel Kusatsu Onsen Boun is in good location, not too crowded. Walking from bus station along the shopping street to Yubatake and then uphill a bit to hotel. Big luggage is not recommended. Hotel services included hotel car are great. Facilities are clean and in good condition. Food is nice. Unfortunately, they not have non-smoking room. The room is comfort and clean with good view.

it is an amazing trip staying in Boun. We were too late to catch the bus going to Boun as we didn't aware winter time schedule has changed. Thus, we arrive at the hotel super late around at 9pm. But the hostel kindly reserved us the dinner and even picked us up while we were finding this hotel in dark on the street. Staffs are so nice to us and we can't say thank you enough !!!! Onsen is perfect and highly recommend!!!!

An excellent onsen hotel. Not far from the Kusatsu bus terminal, at the same time just a few minutes walk to the Kusatsu hot spring. The hotel seems to have been renovated and it's very new and clean. Onsen and food are great! Even though it's just a few minutes walk to the bus terminal, the hotel still offers a ride to the bus terminal. Cannot find a thing I don't like. Highly recommended!

Hot spring, Japanese style room, Atmosphere

It wasn't a short distance to go to Kusatsu from Tokyo by bus(approx. 4hrs). But inside of Boun, everything was what I've expected. Yukata, food, hot spring and tatami room just made me feel like I'm so in Japan. Hot spring water was clean and great for relaxing. Dinner and breakfast was a bit heavy but they were all tasty.

Great Onsen”

The location is great, within 5 minutes walking distance to reach the main attraction of Kusatsu and you will get free entrance ticket to the Netsunoyu show. Room is good, was expecting bigger space with the price, but anyhow it is sufficient for our family of 3 adults and 2 babies (no extra futon for babies who didn't need to pay room fee). Love the onsen in the ryokan, meals are great as well. And they have parking for guest, which is very close to the ryokan entrance.

Onsen, food, cleanliness.

It was perfect place for you to enjoy Kusatsu's onsen. The onsen and shiseido bath products were sublime. We dipped in the indoor pool and outdoor pool in the middle of snow. It was sublime. I spent only one night and I took 3 baths altogether! The kaiseiki dinner was also superb and decadent. The room was new and clean. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a memorable kusatsu experience.

The hotel itself is great. Has 3 onsens (public baths) open almost 24 hours, with outdoor water basins and a lot of cosmetic products available. The traditional dinner was really impressive. The staff at reception was not speaking English too well. They should have been speaking the best English, but that was not the case. Also worth visiting is the great outdoor bath (onsen), separate from the hotel. Overall, Kusatsu is worth visiting.

Deserves a 5 star”

room size / onsen / service

My gf and I decided to walk to the hotel from the bus station to explore more of the beautiful town, which was only about a 10 minute walk. The hotel is situated on top of a hill between the Yubatake (town center) and Sainokawara park/onsen which I think is quite a good location. As soon as we arrived, the staff welcomed us warmly and helped us get checked in emphasizing to us "please make yourself feel at home". Upon entering our room, i was surprised, the Tatami room (halfboard) i booked was larger than expected, 1 living room and 1 bedroom connected to a small indoor porch with two chairs for those guest who would like to read and sip on some tea / and 1 bathroom. The room was very comfortable. At night our kaiseki dinner that came at around 6.30pm was great as well, especially the shabu, felt like a king as the staff served us. For the finale, we went to the hotel's onsen after dressed in our Yukata (already prepared in the closet) the best had to be the one called "Bandai" which had an outdoor onsen. Sitting outside while the snow falls was the perfect ending to my japan trip. Next day the staff prepared our transportation for us to be dropped off at the bus station. Overall, this hotel deserves a 5 star rather than its current 4 star status.

Loved it! Excellent location and great staff.”

An traditional and authentic Japanese onsen we loved our stay here and the staff was excellent. They even called us to warn us about the road closure and provided us with alternative route as we had informed them of late check in since we were driving from the snow monkey park. Ms. Horu informed they won't be able to provided dinner due to late arrival which we understood and accepted even though it was apart of our booking. We stayed in touch with them as they had called us a few times to ensure our safety and we were so grateful for it. We arrived around 8.30pm and they still managed to prepare our dinner which we were thankful as most places were closed due to the heavy snow. While we had our dinner in a private room our bags were sent up and they even gave us an upgrade for our room. The staff were very professional, thoughtful and attentive. We will surely return and stay here again as its such a beautiful place.
