Our stay in Iwaso was excellent. The staff speaks good English, and there were no hassles picking us up at the ferry terminal. Despite the view, the location is close to the shops and attractions, and the 'fresh melon bun with ice cream' around the corner is something everyone should try out. We travelled as a group of 6, and one of our friend is very fuzzy eater who will only eat cooked vegetable, and Iwaso was kind enough to cater for him as well.
The air conditioner can get a bit hot at night (we stayed in winter), and it's a bit hard to find the right remote control setting to adjust it.
Exceptional Staffs : Upon arrival at the pier, the van was sent to pick us up and the driver was very kind and polite. The staffs at the ryokan were very very nice and kind and extremely helpful. Our assistance, Miss Suki was just lovely and she did an exelent job and she did everything to accommodate our need. It was a birthday party for one of our friend and the staffs and Miss Suki did very very well in helping to make it a surprise party and a memorable one. Room : The rooms were quite large, there were plenty of space to move around, the rooms atmosphere were excellent looking over the mountain, the design of the room were functional in the traditional Japanese way and the ryokan is beautifully situated at the foot of the woods. Facility : The Hot bath was excellent, the outdoor one is perfect for relaxing.
The food : Our dinner and breakfast were a little too tiny. Wifi : Only available at the Lobby, in my opinion, this would have been 10/10 with the in room wifi.
Location in the park but still close to city center.
Would have liked to stay in a bigger room.
I really love Iwaso: perfect place, nice staff, good food and wonderful onsen. I don't have any concerns, everything was perfect. I recommend also the tipical Japanese dinner and breakfast.
Onsen is rad! Food, shuttle bus, service
Kaiseki had beautiful presentation and great tasting food. A very good ryokan experience for people who have never been to one. Onsen very clean and well kept.
The maids/waitresses understood/spoke English very well. The front desk not so much.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for our short stay on Miyajima. The room was great. We chose a room with a private bath...not quite ready to go completely traditional...:-). Dinner was good and the futons were amazing!
Iwaso was a peaceful experience in a beautiful setting. It was exactly what we hoped: traditional Japanese setting and food combined with modern comforts, excellent service and convenient location.
Stage island of Miyajima was magical and Iwaso was just as magical. It was a true Japanese experience as the package we bought included an authentic Japanese banquet, so much food. It was an opportunity to taste a huge variety of food that we had not tried due to sometimes it was too difficult to do so in restaurants. The Onsen was fabulous, an incredible setting, especially the outside Onsen backing on to a picturesque stream, babbling into the quiet of the night. A very, very special stay.
This place is located high up and it has a great view. It is worth paying that little bit extra to stay at Iwaso because the service, food and accommodation was excellent! They offered an indoors and outdoors onsen and they were just fabulous!
Dinner was plentiful and delicious Onsen - Very nice Great views Service was top notch
A little Pricey but worth it for a night
- the service - the cottages - the onsen - the japanese food
- the western breakfast could have been a little more western
The setting was beautiful and convenient, the access to lovely walks was great, and the onsen was wonderful.
Many staff seemed completely uninterested. The exterior on arriving is lovely. The interior lacks charm and feels impersonal. Towels small and thin. Some areas poorly maintained. Basin not in bathroom poor design. It all felt like cost cutting was the main aim rather than guest comfort.
The kaiseki dinner in your room was excellent as was the view of the forest in the onsen.
The room was not the nicest ryokan we were at but by far the most expensive.
Loved the traditional feel of the place. They were also very accommodating and prepared a vegetarian meal for us with no hassle at all. Really lovely staff and free shuttle from the ferry was much appreciated.
We liked the welcoming politeness of all staff members, the cleanliness of the room and the overall hotel. They even provided a receptionist with perfect English-proficiency and asked us if we had any allergies concerning the food. The room maid, who served our dinners was also extremely helpful and polite and explained everything to us in quite good English. We were in the newer building, which looks like a normal hotel from the outside. The rooms though are totally designed to fit the classical looks of a japanese ryokan combined with modern accomodations (like an own toilet and bath in the room). Though the hot springs in the cellar of the hotel were sufficient enough. You could sit in the outside hot bath while watching the river flowing by and wild deer walking around. It was like a paradise! The location is also perfect: you walk about 4 minutes to the city center and the important sights in one direction and about 10-15 minutes to the ropeway station of Mt. Misen. Still you are in the midst of the forest. Also very nice was the shuttle service from the ferryport to the hotel and back. The price is high but the dinner and breakfast and the perfect location and experience make definitely up for it. We will come back and would recommend Hotel Iwaso to everyone, who likes to experience a ryokan while enjoying the beauty of Miyajima.
There wasn't really anything that comes to my mind which we didn't like. I can definitely tell you though that every negative thing that we read about the hotel before our stay seems to be wrong or corrected already. They are very hard working to make your stay an unforgettable experience. Total recommendation.
Wonderful japanesse dinner served in your own room. The outside Onsen is impressive. Nature sounds and sights of a forest and a river.
The WI FI doesn't arrive to the rooms. Only in the hall.
Everything! Real japanese experience! The dinner in the room and the onsen were amazing! The staff is so kindly!! Great position!
Onsen inside the hotel
This was an experience not a hotel stay or just staying in a traditional Japanese Ryokan. Staff were eager to help and explain - the location was great. The Japanese baths were the best I experienced in Japan - sitting in a hot bath watching deer foraging in the woods - perfect!
The room was advertised with wifi yet wifi could only be accessed on the first floor. So we asked for a cable as the booklet in out room clearly stated that you could ask for a LAN cable in your room but that turned out to also be a cable downstairs that you had to use (downstairs). So no wifi in our room. When we arrived they asked us what we'd like for dinner and about any allergies or preferences and also what drink we would like (never mentioning that those drinks would cost us extra and weren't under the category of dinner). We only ordered one beer and a coke but still that was sneaky as and the charged us at the end if our stay. It was never mentioned to us that breakfast was to be on level one. Since our dinner was served in our room the previous night one would assume that breakfast would be provided in a similar manner. A man burst into our room to tell us to quickly get our breakfast on level one so we made our way. The drinks that we ordered were forgotten so we asked for them again and within half an hour we were kicked out of the breakfast room as they had to clean. The while place felt rushed and sneaky. It was supposed to be a nice relaxing surprise for my partner and I and I splashed a lot if money expecting something half decent. I must say I was very disappointed in our stay and wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Regardless of the ridiculous price I would still rather stay at many other hostels before this place, sorry.
Beautiful ryokan with traditionnal japanese style rooms with access to the onsen. Delicious food. Staff very friendly and helpful, shuttle to the ferry on demand. Very close to the shrine and shopping street.
Location was excellent;staff incredibly helpful and the hotel shuttle bus made everything a breeze esp on arrival n.departure.
A little run down.
Staff are so friendly and helpful and made for a very personable and enjoyable stay. Room is clean, comfortable and spacious. Meal in room was excellent, as was the breakfast - we had the Japanese breakfast one morning and Western style the next. The onsen is so lovely and relaxing, just perfect. Great location close to the main sights, as well as the forest to the rear. Overall, a fantastic experience, recommended.
We couldn't afford to stay any longer than two nights, but it was a lovely treat during our honeymoon to Japan.
Great hotel and staff! They cater to your needs and ensure that your stay is pleasant.
