About 10 minutes walk from Kowakidani station, but it is quite steep. I recommend asking the hotel for pickup (by Mercedez!). Some rooms have their own private spring hot tub and it is awesome. No large public bath, but there are three small chartered baths, so you can enjoy it whenever you want even if you stayed in a room without a spring bath. Dinner and breakfast have plenty of vegetables and you can enjoy Bagna cauda and various vegetable sticks with white dip sources. Kaiseki (course meal with many small dishes) is very healthy. The room is clean and cozy, but a bit aged (but it does not blot on the good points at all). Nothing is around here and it is very quiet; it means that you have to buy snacks beforehand. I love this hotel! 御影風呂のお部屋に泊まりましたが、非常に満足しました。お値段が高くなっても、檜風呂や御影風呂の付いているお部屋をおすすめします。 3つ貸切風呂がありますが、「煤竹」が一番見晴らしがよいかも。 お食事もバーニャカウダなど、自然の野菜の風味を生かした懐石料理で、お刺身、お肉も繊細でヘルシー、そしてお腹いっぱいになりました。 駅から遠くはありませんが、険しい坂道なので、送迎をお願いするとよいです。 まわりには何もない静かなところなので、事前に買い物をしておくことをおすすめします。

We stayed in a Suite with Semi Open-Air Cypress Bath during March of 2020. The whole experience was absolutely wonderful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here! We are from the UK and as with many places in Japan it goes a long way to speak a little Japanese and learn as many customs as possible whilst you enjoy their beautiful country. We stayed for 2 nights, and I will try and break down each part of our stay! Food - You get your own private dining area which was super romantic and a really lovely touch. We opted for one Japanese style breakfast and one Western breakfast, and as much as I loved the Japanese experience, my other half was grateful for the western breakfast the second morning, so I would definitely recommend this to western travellers. However the evening food was absolutely spectacular, an incredible mix of different types of cuisine with a menu to explain what you are getting, even if there are sparse instructions on how exactly best to eat some parts of the meals! (I think that is all part of the fun and the staff are happy to help try and explain, even with limited English!) The wine and drinks are quite expensive, but living near London, this didn't faze us as much as it seems to some other reviewers! Room and Bath - The in-room onsen looked so inviting and we were incredibly excited on seeing our room as it was pretty spectacular with gorgeous mountain views. Our ONLY gripe was that the bath was INSANELY hot when we first got into the room and only Daenerys Targaryen would be able to get into it! However it did cool over the course of the day and we very much enjoyed not having to leave the room to enjoy the bath! Private Onsens - We also made use of the onsens on site that you literally just walk down to and if one is available you lock the door behind you and it is all yours. We visited quite a few onsens across Japan and it was an absolutely luxury to be able to use one together with my other half as most (all) other onsens are gender specific and public so it is a very different experience. I am truly glad I got to experience both! I would honestly say that if you are trying to save a few pennies, don't go for the tub in your room and just use their ones on site. They are private, clean, and each one is slightly different which is a fun thing to experience. Location - the hotel is up the hill from the town of Hakone and you do need to familiarise yourself with the Round Pass bus system and where to get on and off. Again, we found this all to be part of the adventure, but I can appreciate that if you aren't used to looking at maps and timetables, you may get a little lost/frustrated! If you were short on time, this might not be the hotel for you, but if you have a few days to explore, relax and enjoy, this is 100% the hotel for you. Definitely not a traditional ryoken, and perhaps geared more towards a Western audience, but hey, we were that, and we had an incredible time. Can't wait to go back. Thank you to everyone who made our stay an absolute delight!

The location of The Mantei is wonderful. Peaceful. Entering into a spacious and tastefully designed reception where all check-in formalities are being dealt with efficiently. The rooms are spacious with a nice view. They are however in need of some TLC and modernisation here and there. Especially the bathroom. It could also do with some additional space to store and hang your clothes. Part of the service are these very comfortable cotton pyjamas. The Onsen in the hotel is nice - comfortable and relaxing but not very special. The absolute high-point of the hotel is the food. Absolutely amazing. 7 or 8 courses of very fresh and tasty Japanese dishes. The service in the restaurant is very courteous and kind. The staff at reception could do with some additional training in being 'friendly and helpful'. All in all - a safe bet in the Hakone area

Hakone is known for things like the beautiful nature of the Lake Ashi or Owakudani, volcanic hot spot, but it is also known for its Onsen. That is where this property comes into the lime light. Our stay at Manatei Art and Music was for 2 nights at the premium suite called Owakudani. The suite itself is spacious which could, from my observation, can sleep 4 adults 2 on the two double bed pressed together on the left side of the room when you enter through the entrance and 2 on the right side a futon/lounging area. The suite also comes with a private semi open air Onsen which is out to favorite feature of the room. The room is indeed a “Premium suite” for all these features and space plus along with amenities such as solid collection of bathroom amenities as well complementary tea (with Matcha powder and tea kettle) and a complementary water as well. We also paid for half board which means breakfast and dinner was included in our stay. For breakfast, it is a standard Japanese style with an main entree (breakfast can be change to western style upon request before the check in) and dinner is highlight and star of the meal. The hotel calls it a creative Kaiseki 7 to 8 dish course meal which is not only pleasing to the eyes but to palette as well. The service here was impeccable, special thanks to Mr. Oyama for taking care of us during the both meals for both days!! They also have English speaking staff daily from 9 AM to 6 PM at the front desk. So it is foreign friendly as well. After you finalized your booking it also sends an automated email in English that explains everything about the hotel.If you want to get the true authentic experience of Hakone this place is a must.

The Manatai was the perfect way to experience the traditional Japanese Onsen (hot tub) while still enjoying western comforts. The hotel offers both public as well as private onsens. The service was amazing as was the traditional Japanese breakfast and dinner.
