눉We visited in January and the building was very cold, which is typical of Ryokans in general. The room had a modern electric heater which warmed it up nicely, however the hallways, bathroom and other common areas are fairly cold.
눇A great traditional Ryokan that's located at the entrance of the Jigokudani Monkey Park. Very nice staff, great traditional meals. The entrance is accessible only by foot (a short hike), so pack lightly.

눉The price was a little high and when the credit card machine didn't work upon check out, it wiped out all the cash I had on hand. Especially for non-Japanese cardholders I would anticipate this.
눇The food was great, the owners were exceptionally friendly, the location is both gorgeous and novel due to the integration with the monkey community (I booked the ryokan hoping to get a little more exposure than at the park alone, and was not disappointed in this respect). You will likely be in the company of other tourists foreign to Japan which may or may not suit your experience.

눉The price was extremely high for the overal quality of the accommodation. E.g. not hot water, no showers except onsen, rooms minium heated, old house, which needs some renovation, smelly toilets, hard futon and sleeping directly under woolen blanket on sheets which very obviously old and too long used. Additionally we had to pay ¥500 for electricity even though the booking confirmation stated that this fee is included in the price. It seems to be a highlight bathing in the outdoor onsen with the monkeys but note that the monkey's also use it as there toilet.
눇The location is great very close to the entance of the monkey park. We were happy that they were able make the meals vegan. However, this only against a fee of ¥2000 per person.
