Stayed in a twin room for 1 night during our March trip. Was assigned the Japanese room type, it was smaller than what we had expected from the hotel's website pictures - 10 tatami mat instead of a 16 tatami mat room? Perhaps it would be better if they had displayed out all the available room types on the website so that people can know what they were expecting.
The hotel was located uphill, so access was hard if you don't book the free shuttle bus or if you don't have a bus to transfer you up. What was more unbelievable was that, they actually had another flight of stairs up to the hotel's lobby area, after having to drag the heavy luggage uphill to the hotel's doorstep. Now I understand why most of the patrons are locals. The rooms, were the typical types of rooms which you can expect from an onsen hotel. However, I think it's time that they change the kettle inside the room. There is a metallic smell coming from the water boiled & the room's doors are quite hard to close/open and they are not auto-locked. However, I appreciate the fact that the hotel staff took notice of our meal request not to have raw food.More
