      Great onsen with a view

      Perfect location and very nice rooms. Service was friendly and helpful. We traveled with my wife’s parents on their 40th wedding anniversary, and we got a free room upgrade. Awesome!

    • 6.0.Good

      전체적으로는 만족합니다. 분명히 방을 금연룸으로 예약했는데 금연방이 없다고 흡연방에 냄새제거를 잘해주겠다 해서 그렇게 예약했습니다. 근데 룸이 문제가 아니라 그 층 전체가 금연룸 층이어서 엘리베이터 내리자마자 복도 전체에 담배 냄새가 장난아니었습니다 ㅠㅠ 숨 참고 다닐 정도였습니다. 그래도 직원들은 모두 친절했고 석식 조식 다 맛있어서 좋았습니다.

      Nice hotel. Room a bit small for an onsen hotel but clean room and friendly staff made up the deficiency in hardware.
