It was such a wonderful place to stay. I enjoyed the delicious food, especially the variety of different meats. One small disappointment was that due to large number of mosquitoes, there were times when I couldn't enter the the open air bath facilities. I realized that next time, I'd like to come back after having first considered the season. + More
I was able to relax while entering the hot spring in a privately attached 1st floor open air bath facility that felt liberatingly spacious and overlooked a stretching bamboo grove. My room came set-up with a TV and an aroma diffuser (the aroma diffuser did cost extra, but I'm glad I decided to rent it), and after enjoying the fragrance while lounging in the spacious bed, I felt totally refreshed both physically and emotionally. The offerings for dinner and breakfast were more than satisfying both in terms of content and amount. The Soshugyu beef that I had at dinner was particularly delicious. Beginnning with the welcome drink upon arrival (I chose sparkling wine) and the dessert I was offered, I felt extremely comfortable being there thanks to the genuine and obviously heartfelt service and consideration I received from all of the staff. I was able to forget all about daily life and have a really worthwhile time. Such a wonderful place, it will make you want to come back again. Thanks again for everything you did to make sure I had a great stay. + More
Not too far from Hakoneyumoto Station and easily accessible from Tokyo, without a TV being set-up, I was able to spend time quietly in my sparkling clean room (which was splendidly simple and spacious) simply listening to a little light music. The open air rotemburo bath attached to the room was cozy and nice, the amenities were good (towels and bathrobes were soft and felt great), and the large common bathing area was clean and quiet, etc. The other married couple that traveled with us were also very satisfied with their stay. I highly recommend this place. While other reviewers have commented that the dining area lacked privacy, it was actually rather spacious and along with the beautiful view out the window, I hardly took notice of the folks sitting next to us and generally found it to be good. If I were pressed to offer up anything I wish had been a little better, I would have liked there to be more fresh vegetables served in the meals. In terms of both content and amount, the dinner was satisfying, I wish there had been more vegetables in the breakfast and dinner, seeing as how recently many places make a point of featuring and serving fresh vegetables (I do recommend the Japanese-style breakfast option). Also, I'd be happy if it were made easy to get ahold of drinks (such as juice, champagne, beer) in the morning, and if the whole building were made completely non-smoking. The lobby veranda functions as a smoking area, but the smell that finds its way in was a little rough. All in all, my options for places to go when tired and needing a break have increased. Thank you again for everything. + More
I was blown away and am very satisfied with everything about this place. Though I only stayed a single night, I was able to take it easy and get plenty of rest and relaxation. The concept of not having a TV in the room made me debate for a second whether I should rent a one, but not having one turned out really well as for the first time in a long time we were really able to slow down and enjoy having a conversation. Bathing while admiring the floating lotus flowers right in front of my eyes was great, but daydreaming about how nice it would also be on a snowy day has already got me pleasantly thinking about when I will have my next chance to come back again. + More
This was my second time coming here, but the calming, comfortable atmosphere and hot spring water itself is fantastic! The meals were also delivered with perfect timing and large portions. My stay greatly exceeded any expectation. I would love to have the chance to come back again. + More
Located in historical Tounosawa Hakone, Kinnotake was a rather classy and spotless half-hotel and half-traditional ryokan inn. Every member of staff was very considerate and provided me with heartfelt service. The three big cherry blossom trees right near the room were also in stunning full bloom. Looking at them while stretching my whole body out in the open air rotemburo, I felt a certain joy to be alive and spent a blissful time. From my room I was also able to see National Route 1 at the bottom of the valley and was told that it is the course of the Hakone Ekiden, the long-distance relay race. I have to say that one of the most impressive points was that the room's washstand had been expertly crafted from a single sheet of bent and shaped stainless steel, an installation which added to the already immaculate feeling of the room. I also thoroughly enjoyed the meals which made use seasonal ingredients. + More
Although I travel in Hakone with some frequency, this was the first time I had taken advantage of this facility's hospitality. I feel that the experience of crossing over the bridge in one's car, as well as the tranquil atmosphere that pervades the building and guest rooms is simply perfect for forgetting all about daily life. Personally, I rather liked the facts that the spacious room deliberately didn't come with a TV and I was able to simply put on a little music take it easy. The open air rotemburo bath that came attached to the room was also stunning, and I made use of it quite a few times during my stay. I think that this place would be wonderful for couples or families looking to spend a little quiet time together. With regards to the service, staff members were from foreign countries, but as I was treated well and respectfully it wasn't a worry at all for me personally. + More
