I considered this as a bargain for Arima Onsen area hotel. I stayed here for two nights at end of August. I took the half board option which include breakfast and in room Kaiseki dinner. Food was not bad with Kobe beef. First night is Shabu shabu with a paper hotpot. Yes paper. It does not burn through. Second night...

It feels like a very traditional Japanese hotel. It is old but in good condition. We went as a group of 7 with a child, we had a fabulous time there especially enjoyed our meal. The surrounding area are streets full of hot spring hotels and souvenir shops, people would wear the hotel's Japanese bathing rope while shopping.

We stayed here for one night as a weekend trip. We arrived at around 5pm on a Saturday rainy day. Staff was highly attentive and courteous. One of them could speak Cantonese to us while introducing hotel facilities. Another colleague helped us to load our bags all the way to the 7/F. He was also kind enough to wipe our...

Although not as luxurious as many Onsen hotel in the town, the location is superbly convenient. From Shin Kobe station, the local train will bring you right into Arima Onsen station. From the station, it is just a 5 minutes walk to the hotel. All shops and eateries are within walking distance. I will suggest booking the full board package....

This hotel is just a short walkable distance from the train station. A very large resort with large rooms. Meals are served in the room. The staff is friendly and helpful. Very little English spoken here. WI-FI are in the 1st floor and 7th floor common areas. I lucked out since my room was close to the 7th floor common...

This is a decent onsen, conveniently located near the train station. However, It doesn't have the intimate feel of the high end onsens. I recommend that you look around for a more traditional onsen, but this one is okay if you don't have other choices. I liked the bath with the local volcanic waters. There is a nice footbath in...

“You should request a room at the seventh floor because onsen is located at this floor. It will save you a great deal of time.”
