we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hoshi. yes there's a few bits of carpet that need replacing here and there and some paint touch ups but we had such a great experience, received such great service, enjoyed the hot spring baths and our delightful room so much, the little imperfections were easy to forget. we stayed in a lovely traditional...

We had seen the mini-documentary on this place on Vimeo and were very curious to check it out. We stayed in a traditional room (apparently there are also "Modern" ones in a separate 7 story building next to the older complex - we never went there though). We slept on tatami mats on the floor, which is more comfortable than...

Reading the reviews, it seemed hit or miss but I wanted to visit this old establishment. Yes, it's old...I mean, 1300 years old. It's been expanded and is huge. Does it need some fixing up? Yes, but I've been to plenty of regular hotels that have way more wear and tear and only decades old, not centuries. Anyway, the people...

Stayed at room 812 which is the largest and grandest room in the property. Personal attendant was very kind and professional but everything is mediocre at best. Food quality and presentation was nothing special and facility needs serious updates. Garden looked very tired and building need serious updates. Wifi only works in lobby and public bath area. It's very hard...

I read the recent negative reviews of Hoshi the day before my husband and I were to arrive there and to say I panicked is an understatement. I tried to cancel, but couldn't do so without a 100% penalty. So we took the train to Kaga Onsen and were picked up promptly by the hotel shuttle and ferried to the...

I suspect this must be the lowest point in Hoshi's long history. It desperately needs thorough remodeling and professional management. Carpets in hallways and other public areas are worn and horribly stained, threadbare in places. Meals are served in a large, non-descript hall, in a slap-the-plates-down-when-we-please fashion. The quality of the food is mediocre. The ceiling in the otherwise enjoyable...

This hotel definitely shows its age; decor is dated and tired-looking, the whole place definitely needs a major update. Food was ok, ingredients were good quality but nothing to write home about. Staff speaks very little English but they are courteous and friendly. There's a small outdoor onsen and an indoor one. Waking up to birds chirping and absolute quietness...

Having read the reviews I was really looking forward to our 2 night stay. Staying at one of the world's oldest hotels with all the tradition - excellent! However the reality was that the ryokan was in desperate need of an upgrade, the room was enormous but it was tired and had big cracks in the sink, water stains in...

Although the location might be a bit offputting (nothing much to see or do in the area), the hotel itself makes up for it. The room was massive - balcony with a lovely view to the garden, tea room, sleeping area, toilet, large bathroom etc. The onsen was really relaxing as well. However, try to follow the general etiquette and...

The allure of one of the oldest hotels is awesome except it has since been enlarged and its HUGE. getting lost in it is not a possibility - its a certainty. The food was OK, mediocre not great. The service was also not best. Wifi is available only in certain areas.
