    The hotel deserved it's three star rating. Staff were polite and the hotel was clean. It's rates are expensive but this is probably due to it's fabulous location which is ideal for a few days walking in the area. It was an onsen which is open all nught which is good as after dinner there is nowhere to go in the area as it is remote. It isn't a huge onsen and it can be quite full with only 2 hair drying facilities but I didn't find this an issue as I just went back to my room to dry my hair. Our room on the 3rd floor had lovely views overlooking the mountains. We had a half board option and some of the food was a little bizarre but overall the hotel is what it says in the tin. A standard hotel in a great location. We would stay again.

    Everything was as expected. It is expensive but so are all the hotels in this area.

    Hotel close to the bus station and next to the bridge. Staff was attentive.

    I suppose the location is worth the money... No, it is a pretty decent hotel, maybe one of the nicest in terms of room size, style and view (river and mountains!) I've been to. also the Japanese bath was really nice and staff very helpful. However, the 9pm curfew was somewhat ridiculous - doors were looked AND all lights in the hotel lobby (only place with wifi...) switched off. Lobby area lacks some charm in general - old and no comfy seats. In a hostel this would never even slightly bother me but I paid the same for one night here as I would have for 6 nights in a hostel, so....But, once in a life I suppose, staying in kamikochi directly at the river may be worth it.

    Curfew and closure of of public areas at 9pm. Lobby area could easily be so much nicer. Food was ok, but fully Japanese would be much better (poor attempt on a risotto that was cold and barely distinguishable from mashed potatoes...)

    Spectacular and breathtaking view of the alps from outside our window! The place is great for very relaxing vacation. Nature tripping during the day and lots of rest at night time. Would love to go back there again!

    The food was great but lacked variety since we stayed for 2 nights and was served almost the same dishes during the entire stay.

    The staff - they were great. The things they do to make you feel comfortable are remarkable. One afternoon, it suddenly rained heavily. A group of about 6 or 7 guests came through the door all drenched. One of the things the staff did on their own accord was to hand the guests slippers in exchange for their wet shoes. When the guests had gone up to their rooms, the staff cleaned, dry and air their shoes. The next morning, the shoes were all lined up ready for the guests!

    Nothing really ....

    The view from the mountain facing windows is spectacular, the traditional rooms are fantastic (for a tourist) You get to wear your yukata robes around the hotel and to dinner...the staff members are very helpful and polite even by Japanese high standards. The location is at the start of various mountaineering trails, and beside the river.

    The location is so good that there is a monetary cost to pay...worth it though

    Location, location, location! This hotel is right at the base of the Kappabachi bridge in central Kamikochi. The views from the third floor are stunning looking out towards the mountains and river. Hotel staff is exceptionally friendly and speaks English to some degree. The price is right considering the location.

    The facility is dated and the carpets have seen better days. The public bath is miniscule and was crowded.

    The food at the hotel was consistently terrible. We didn't think it was possible to have a bad meal in Japan. The flavours didn't match, the food was either too cold (salads) or lukewarm (meats and tempura) or too dry (over cooked fish). The beef was only 50 percent edible with more gristle than at a $10 steak restaurant in Australia. Added to that the Japanese guests appeared to be served a completely different menu. Pack your instant ramen.

    Location in the kamikochi national park. View from my window was breathtaking. Food was excellent and the staff was extremely helpful.
