3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness

We enjoyed the architecture of the ryokan and our breakfasts. We did have a Japanese suite for 3 persons which was large and very comfortable and we stayed 3 nights. However, we were a little disappointed in the onsen as only onsen towels were provided and no bath towels which meant we had to take our room towels to the onsen and bring them back damp. Also the "silver" onsen was claustrophobic in that it was completely enclosed with only a small opening so it felt like a steam bath/Jacuzzi and not particularly relaxing. If you don't speak any Japanese it is also difficult as very little English is spoken and we had some minor misunderstandings. Otherwise an enjoyable stay but we probably won't return as we weren't impressed with Arima and there are many other ryokans with onsens and towns that are more to our liking.
