We stayed here for one night while we were visiting Hakone. I had picked it because of the ability to see Mt. Fuji out of the room window, unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy the whole weekend so that didn’t happen :,(. The staff was amazing - beyond helpful with everything. They really made us feel extremely pampered the whole time. However the hotel itself for the price could use some updating which is why I only gave it 4 stars overall. It was built in the 1990s and though it’s in perfect condition it’s definitely dated. The dinner and breakfast were also good (but there was no coffee!!!!).
