We are so glad that we stayed in Gora Yutowa hotel as our first visit to Hakone. It’s a true 5 star ️ experience if you prefer modern design, big open space, and delicious breakfast.
The location is super close to the Gora station, only 3 min walk, 5 min walk to Lawson. The stuff are all friendly and attentive which makes you feel at home. We enjoy the most was the hotel library and the self-service Coffee/Tea bar. In the evening there was free mini cocktail corner for the guests to enjoy the making of your own drinks.
The public hot spring is nice and clean. While the outdoor foot onsen in the court yard has a more romantic atmosphere, with bonfire and under the stars.
Our room on 5th floor is just spectacular, a simple modern Japanese style twin room. But it’s quite big with a huge window facing East and the mountain, we were able to see the boats on Sagami Bay and, watching the sunrise from the room.
Also the interior of the hotel is beautifully decorated with the natural pattern carpet, calming timber wall and marble stairs. We stayed two nights and enjoyed delicious breakfast every morning in the Mountain View hotel restaurant.
We absolutely adore Hotel Yutowa and, it’s the go to hotel for our second visit to Hakone!More
