Most of the Hotels in Kawaguchiko provide shuttle service from the Train Station to the hotel. Just notify the Tourist Center and they will inform the Hotel to fetch you. I believe many bad reviews of the Hotel are due to the worn out rooms of the Old Banquet Level and Old Wing of the Hotel. The rooms in the...

It was amazing! It was winter, it was cold outside and we still enjoyed our outdoor bath.The room was beautiful and the views amazing! Also the futon was so comfy! It was hard to get up and get going of a morning as I just wanted to stay in bed! We traveled in the off season but still found places...

We stayed at their dormitory on the 5th floor which previously was a banquet. The restroom is to be shared with others which was disgusting. The cleanliness was below the worst. The only good thing is public onsen that they have, unfortunately, that was the only option or you won't be able to take a shower elsewhere. It's too expensive...

I stayed at its dormitory/shared bedroom which is at the top floor (5/F). Previously, that was for banquet (as said on its lift). But have been converted to rooms with shared toilet (for both male and female). I chose this hotel because it is just opposite to the Ohike Kouen Park which was both the Start and Finish points for...

The hotel was so old. Need renovation everywhere. Bath room is dirty and they did not give proper amenities for guests. Receptionist staff's not friendly. I tried onsen here and it was good. Breakfast is good, but you can't choose menu because they already served in table for you. I would think twice to stay here again

I'm staying here for 2 nights as part of a Jewels of Japan guided tour and it's absolutely dreadful. Described as a Ryokan but my room overlooks the air conditioning unit,is brightly lit and has no relaxing atmosphere at all. It has scruffy beige wallpaper, awful minute bathroom with no toiletries whatsoever, and two mattresses on the floor. Food only...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Royal Hotel for one night after a long day of hiking mount Fuji. When we arrived at the hotel we were very disappointed. The hotel main lobby and our room smelt like stale cigarettes and the room felt very dirty. The shower curtain was black and mouldy. The room in general felt very...

Just stopped by for the onsen, which was quite expensive at a 1000 yen each. The onsen itself didn't feel and look clean, neither was the water really hot. Staff was also not very polite. Must be better alternatives for an onsen in this town.
