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.
Very helpful staff. The view of the forest from our balcony was just lovely! I really enjoyed relaxing in the onsen late at night, listening to the river running by outside.
The sleeping mats make for a very firm surface - not a complaint, just not so comfortable for "western" guests! Fine for a night in traditional surrounds.
Food was amazing and dinner brought to your room. Onsen was amazing looking our into bush. Our personal watress was excellent
Impeccable service and amenities Foods - both quality and service were outstanding. Authentic Japanese experience in terms of hot springs bathing, sleeping customs and cuisine.
Good free shutle bus service, kind staffs, convinient location
3 people booked in one room but the room size was too small and the price is too expensive.
Kaiseki dinners were excellent. Attendant/servers were very personable, and their English was very good. Onsen was great. Facility and room was very clean. Great access to hiking Mt. Misen.
Towels need to be upgraded or washed with less detergent, they were so poorly absorbent. No designated place for one's belongings. Surprising lack of moisturizer.
Perfect location, pick-up from ferry port included. Views of trees and stream from the outdoor onsen. Great kaiseki dinner, with the added bonus that the waitress could explain the dishes in English - quite rare in a ryokan! All staff were lv
The onsen was a wonderful experience and a definite must do as were the meals. Highly recommended!
Wifi only available on 1st and 2nd floors not in the rooms.
- great experience of japanese tradition - very nice staff - great location next to a calming forest
