    Loved our stay here! Only a short train ride away from Kyoto station so it was convenient but away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff was also very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    The location might be a little out of the way but the shuttle service to bring us to the accom from the MRT station was prompt. The staff that showed us our room was very friendly and patient to share with us where the facilities were. Loved the meals that were served, and also the outdoor onsen, where we were able to gaze at the night sky while we rejuvenate ourselves in the hot onsen. Would love to stay here again in future.

    Hotel provides shuttle bus (white van) from hotel only to train station. May need to call to hotel for pick up. Other than public bath and private bath in hotel, there is nothing else. Not all staff are able to speak English (as expected) but they tried to communicate.

    I booked the room in japanese style with open air bath for one day. We enjoyed the best view in the room and the open air bath. The public air bath is also very good. This really could provide me a relax, peaceful and enjoyable moment for my trip. The dinner with beef and the breakfast were very good. Staff in the receoption and the driver were very friendly. Although the hotel is a bit away from the JR station, this is easy to make phone to hotel requesting for shuttle bus picking up.

    The room is excellent. If you go there by JR, you can tell the staff in station and they'll help you call the hotel for pick up. Free shuttle is very important because you have to climb up the a bit and walk for a while.

    Yuzansou Hotel”

    Food. Room with private onsen. Service.

    The hotel is not within walking distance from the Ogoto Onsen Station. The person at the small tourism counter helped to contact the hotel and a shuttle came to pick us up. We got the room with private onsen and keiseki dinner plus breakfast. We had the same private booth for both meals, which were very delicious. The room is also spacious (comes with 2 toilets). The staff crew tho speaks limited english are very prompt in service. We spent the entire time in the the hotel as its location is not near any amenities and will require a shuttle trip out. It was a good resting time.

    Better than expected”

    This hotel is recommended by many agencies. Good value for money. Friendly staff and provide everything you need. We expected that the facilities might be a little bit old as the hotel is not new, but they were very clean and good. It was out of our expectation. We have booked the room with a private onsen which was a very wise choice. Enjoying the private onsen under the temperature of 5C with the view of the lake was superb. (And therefore we didnt go to the public onsen haha) The room is spacious and we loved that. The only drawback was the meals are just average. But with this price, we were very ok with that as well. Highly recommended!

    Private bathtub was awesome!”

    It was a family trip with mom and sis. we had a great time in yuzansou. especially bathtub in our room. you can experience private bath with beautiful biwako (which is large lake in japan) view. I wasn't able to have kaiseki because of my mistake but we did have really good kaiseki near the hotel recommended by yuzanso. It doesn't look fancy or vintage ryokan but it was worth in its own way.

    Relaxing place”

    Very relaxing Ryokan resort, not too busy, very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. Food was great, both dinner and breakfast. The spa was also very enjoyable, both private one and public one. The only drawback is the location, hard to get to with nothing to see around it. But at least the hotel have complimentary pick up and drop off at the train station.

    Lots of fun getting away and relaxing”

    Fun change for a westerner. No furniture in the living sleeping area. Interesting maze of a hotel with the original and additional parts. Loved my private room and private small onsen. Not as nice as pictured. It was a bit smaller but still big enough for 2 people. Soaking and showering outdoors in the cool air was great. Dining not in-room, but the Kaiseki dinner and breakfast was set in our private dinning room in the restaurant. And the food was really good. comfortable futon bedding. Decent wifi. Loved the whole experience.

    staff are not helpful”

    staff are not flexible, it is my birthday trip and they refuse to prepare cake or any upgrade or even late check out for me. They insist the check out time at 10am even the hotel is not full house. Staff on the phone is not friendly and rude. Their English is bad. The facilities are old, there is neither bath tub nor shower stand in the standard room . You can only go down to the public shower area to take bath. Did not expect this at this price range. Unforgettable birthday trip with bad experience.

    Staffs were all nice. Loved the atmosphere and surroundings. Onsen public bath place was very satisfying although it was not really big, it felt cozy. The only thing was that the rooms were a bit small for 4 family to fit in together as we got a standard room. Also, the breakfast was amazing.

    The hotel is a bit old, nut still well maintained. There is a shop at the lobby. The hotel is big and value for money. The onset is located under a cherry blossom tree, from which the cherry blossom pedals fell onto the onset during the blossom season. It was a very nice experience

    Great value! If you're wanting to experience a traditional ryokan, this hotel is definitely worth it. The accommodation was fantastic and the kaiseki dinner and traditional Japanese breakfast that is included was delicious. I highly recommend going for the deluxe dinner option if you have the choice.

Highly recommend booking kaiseki dinner. Presentation of food amazing and tastes great. It was nice to have private open air bath and be able to soak first thing in the morning while listening to the birds chirping. I would definitely recommend booking a stay here!!

    Friendly staff but toilet smells like urine ”

    Staffs are very friendly and nice. We booked a room with private outdoor spring bath which is AMAZING!! The hotel room is generally clean but...the toilet does smell like urine, I guess it’s the building material they used....which really trapped the smell, and quite unpleasant. Dinner presentation is great but food quality is average. Overall positive experience.
