Our family of 8 booked 2 rooms at Mizunoto for the onsen in Hakone. They gave us 2 rooms ( one for 3 people with private open bath room in the new building, and one for 5 in the main or old building). The room in the new building is fine, although the sofa bed is not comfortable for big size person. But the room with tatami in the old building is disappointing. It was outdated and look worn. We feel it's not value for money. We had half boarded. Food was excellent. Staff was friendly but their English is limited. The onsen in the old building is small. There's no room for changing or drying yourself properly. It is an authentic rokyan. I would recommend it for couple and stay in the new building, otherwise you might feel cheated for the price you paid.

This spa hotel is located about 30 minutes beyond Hakone Yamoto, the main train stop in the Hakone area. It is just two stops from the last stop of the train at Gora, at which point the Hakone circuit changes over to tram/cablecar, then ropeway (little gondolas), then boat, then bus or other form of transportation back to your starting point. We liked Mizunoto's location, as it was less congested than Halone Yamoto and gave us a good starting point for the circuit. If you arrive in the afternoon b/w 3-5, there is a driver with van awaiting each train's arrival that will take you the few minutes to the hotel. If for some reason the driver wasn't there, it seemed that there was always a cab waiting at each train stop. The uphill walk with luggage isn't recommended.

The hotel itself is very nice and apparently frequented mostly by Japanese domestic travelers. We had a room with mountain view and outdoor cedar soaking tub in the main lobby wing of the building on the 5th floor of 6 floors. It was quite comfortable and streamlined (e.g., cedar walls and floors with some tatami mats) with two futon types beds, which we pushed together to create a "king," as well as a small sofa, floor seating area with table and two chair backs, complimentary snacks, tea pot and fridge, shower and sink area (separate from the bathroom itself.) We were provided with "samue e" outfits (two-piece linen (?) pajamas sets) to wear while there, and most guests wore them to meals as well as while wandering around the resort. There was a separate set that you could wear as actual pajamas, which were lighter in both color and fabric. We also had slippers to change into once in the room and while walking around the hotel's indoor grounds. Those were exchanged for outdoor slippers when we frequented the co-ed outdoor baths, of which there were three that you could use on a first-come, first-serve basis. In the indoor bathhouses, which are segregated by gender and of which there are two different sets, you drop the indoor slippers outside of the door to that facility and then pick them up when you come back out. There is an assortment of all bathing items inside the bathhouse: shampoo, conditioner, body soap, toothbrushes, razors, combs/brushes. You take a full shower before entering any of the baths, since the water is shared by all.

The three outdoor private baths, which are coed, are quite nice, each overlooking little garden areas. We actually never used the cedar bath on our room's deck because we used these other private baths instead. By the way, the water that is piped into the guestroom baths is not hot spring water, whereas the water in the outdoor private baths and the indoor/outdoor gender-segregated baths is from the area's hot springs.

There are free tasty fruit popsicles, as well as free milk (in the afternoon), outside of the baths. There is also a lobby area bar with free coffee, tea, miso, and some bun-type snacks that we never managed to try. If you get hungry in the late evening, we understood that there were free noodles as well. Again, never tried those.

The gender segregated baths are quite nice, with changing area, shower/scrubbing area, sauna, indoor hot bath, indoor cold pool, and outdoor hot bath. There vast majority of guests are Japanese, who are quite familiar with the bathhouse routine. Be forewarned that they change the gender-specific bathhouses at certain times, so you have to watch the curtain color (red for women; blue for men). If you just return -- lemming-like -- to the same physical location as the first time that you used them a bath, you, and whoever else is in the bathhouse at that time, will be in for a rude, though comical, awakening. I would say that for those uninitiated to bathhouse etiquette, this might not be the best place to start. While we had no problem with the staff and their English, we didn't have many questions and had both been to similar types bathhouses here in the U.S. Even then, we didn't expect the change in bathhouse from day to day by gender. Not a big deal, but you do need to be comfortable with nudity, at least same-gender nudity, to fully enjoy these places.

Our meals were included, and they were quite good. We had a grilled meal one night, with us doing the grilling at our table. The second night we opted for the shabu-shabu meal, which was also quite good. The breakfast, even if you order the Western-style breakfast, is much for food than you might want, and even it tends towards a Japanese style.

This felt like a very authentic Japanese ryokan for those seeking respite from Tokyo. If you want more choices (e.g., shopping, restaurants), then you should probably stay in the heart of Hakone Yamoto. If you prefer something more Japanese, but not lacking in amenities (no WiFi) then this is a lovely choice. The area, with all of its museums, etc., as well as the opportunity to see Mt. Fuji if the weather cooperates, is worth a two--night stay. And if you are going to do the Hakone circuit, this is a great location because you are so close to the Gora end of the line for the train, which is the beginning of the line for the tram and ropeway -- the true heart of the circuit. If it is clear, all of a sudden Mt. Fuji just appears and causes one to audibly gasp. If you were to do the circuit in the other direction (e.g., Lake Ashi to Gora) the appearance of Fuji would not be as dramatic, as it would gradually come into your view as your ropeway car rose from the Lake Ashi end of the line. Because of the hotel's location, you can get an early start on the circuit and hit the best part before the crowds arrive. Seeing Fuji on a clear day was spectacular; it was much larger and closer than we had anticipated. We also very much enjoyed the outdoor sculpture museum, which again is on the circuit (at the train stop between the hotel and Gora so that you can either do it on the way to Lake Ashi or as a stand alone visit -- there is an awesome foot bath area located right on the museum grounds; great idea for the weary traveler).

We were visiting Hakone and wanted to try a ryokan experience. Mizu no To is really more of a "modern ryokan" or a combination of a hotel and ryokan with western style hotel rooms combined with access to hot springs. This is a great option for travelers who don't speak Japanese well and not sure that they want the full "traditional" ryokan experience. Overall we really enjoyed our time and thought that the value for money was high. It was the first time to Japan for my partner and she doesn't like sushi so this was a good balance of western and Japanese comforts.

Shuttle Pickup from the train station was prompt and a nice touch since the walk up to the hotel from the train station is steep and not a short distance. We had our luggage delivered from Tokyo so it was waiting for us in our room at after check in which was fantastic. Our two meals were excellent and although they were served in the main restaurant (traditional ryokans serve the meals in your room), the service was good and my partner had a good time. We enjoyed all the freebies including good Wifi connection, complimentary cakes in the room, free popsicles, free milk, and even free ramen! The complimentary tea in the waiting area was also very good. Knowing some Japanese is helpful, but not necessary as we saw many foreign parties manage to figure out how to use the private and group onsen areas. As long as you relax and have a good timing (including wearing the standard "loungewear" of the resort, you will find Mizu no To a highlight to your trip in Hakone and Japan!

We opted for mizunoto hotel because of the price, in-room outdoor bath (which maybe we dont need since we love the onsen so much) and private onsen. It was our first onsen trip and if any of the family member was shy they can try the private onsen instead. We had the semi western room in the new building with 2 single bed and 1 extra bed on tatami. We really loved our room! It was a pretty sight and the outdoor bath overlooking the trees and mountain was quite a sight. The best hotel we had in our trip!

There is 2 onsen, 1 onsen in the new building and 1 onsen in the other building. The onsen in the new building is larger, both have an outdoor bath as well. We tried both of the onsen, as well as the private onsen! It was very relaxing. The room package came with dinner and breakfast. We got BBQ for dinner and a Japanese style breakfast, both were delicious. Our server was really friendly too despite the minimum english. They also give out free ramen if you are still hungry after dinner (we didn't try it though as we were quite stuffed after a full set kaiseki dinner - can't imagine anyone still hungry after that).

We came by train from hakone yumoto station to kowakudani station not in between the shuttle bus period and we couldnt call the hotel so we did the 10 min hike from kowakudani station to the hotel which was quite a hike with our luggage. I would just suggest to take the taxi in front of kowakudani station if you don't come within the allocated time and couldn't call the hotel to pick you up. The hike not really worth your energy. Another way by public transport is by taking the 'H' bus (the red line) straight to Nino-taira iriguchi bus stop (1 stop away from kowakudani stop) and it was only a 5min walk from the stop and less of a hike.

We really love our time in Hakone and in this hotel. One of the best highlight of our trip! Ps: the front desk speak decent english and the waiter in the dining room tried their best to explain the meal for us in english. They also give out enough information for us in english to enjoy our stay (map of surrounding area, map of bus stop, hotel facilities, etc) we really appreciate their effort in making our stay a great experience. Best value for the price we paid I should say! Definitely recommended!

Despite many discussions about a vegetarian breakfast before and after our arrival I was still served copious amounts of dead fish and meat for breakfast. I understand if a meal is set. I would have been quite happy to have been told a clear no, it is not possible, before we arrived. I did not ask for any extras, just for no creatures to be killed on my behalf because of my religious beliefs. However, despite the staff agreeing to just give me what was in the set, except the meat and fish, I got served it all, but with an extra egg and told to just not eat the disgusting looking meat and fish that was on the individual plates in front of me. I just get incredulous that in Japan my request would be treated with such disrespect. It may only be an issue particular to vegetarians, but with the amount of emails before we came and further discussions upon arrival, it must be expected that this lack of courtesy extends further across their treatment of staff.

We've been to Hakone several other times. We didn't know this when we booked the hotel, but we previously stayed at its sister hotel, the Hakone Setsugetsuka (which we also liked) couple years back. We chose this hotel because (like Setsugetsuka) it offered private onsen areas outside, and also came with a lot of extras like the complimentary refreshments. There are three of these, two larger ones that are right next to each other (which might make them feel not as private, if you're sensitive about having to potentially listen to other people's conversations) and are of the same type, and a third smaller one shaped like a large "barrel." We tried both types and the barrel type's temperature was slightly lower (40C) than the other two (42C). We're not sure if it was due to the barrel type having only one input source (less water circulation/turnover) and a smaller size, but there was more "debris" that we felt compelled to scoop out with the provided net. Each private bath has a cold water dispenser that's very helpful for keeping yourself hydrated. We were visiting during what amounts to spring break for schools despite it being a weekday, so it became a bit of a competition to find an open bath (pro-tip: check-in early if you can and get your onsen time in before everyone else arrives--that way you can also get the dinner time you want). The private baths don't come with a shower, so the expectation is that you should clean yourself in the large baths before heading over to the private baths (please do!). The large baths were quite nice, though, and we tried both in the new/old wings. The bath in the new wing have baths at different temperatures (40/42C) and an outdoor bath, whereas the bath in the old wing has just one temp and an outdoor bath, but also a sauna. Different refreshments are served outside each wing's large bath during the early evening hours before dinner--in the new wing, you get free drinks (milk, yogurt drink, and coffee milk). In the old wing, you can get small refreshing fruit-flavored popsicles. You can take a bath in a location of your choosing, then just walk a short distance over to the other wing if you wanted the other refreshment. We arrived at the hotel 2 hours before our supposed check-in time due to poor weather, but we only had to wait about 30min before they let us into the rooms and they checked us in in advance (so we could pick dinner times). The wait was not bad, either, as the spacious lobby is stocked with a coffee machine, cold tea (it was black bean tea for us), and even a citrusy fruit liquor. It is a rather long uphill walk from the train station, so using the free shuttle is recommended (the nearest convenience store seems to be about a 5-10min downhill from the hotel, but we'd recommend picking up any supplies at Yumoto station, as the 7-11 there is more convenient). The room is cozy but serviceable (get a room in the new wing to avoid cigarette smoke smells), and they give you two bottles of water for free in the fridge plus the usual snacks. They also give you small hand baskets to tote your toiletries and towels etc. around as you use the bathing facilities. With regard to food, we chose the early dinner time and dinner was very filling, so we didn't make use of the free steamed buns provided during dinner time 1 (for dinner time 2 folks getting hungry) nor the midnight ramen service (for crazy people feeling hungry after dinner). We had an eye on their extensive umeshu bar in the lobby (10pm-midnight), so we didn't order any drinks at dinner. Dinner was a bit chaotic for servers with many large families (the spring break effect), but we were happy enough with the service and we could always flag down a server in enough time if we needed tea refills, etc. Unfortunately, the menu is in Japanese, though, and while that wasn't a problem for us, if you don't understand Japanese, you may miss out on the menu details. We chose the non-grilling dinner menu based on reviews on a JP travel review site (Jalan) and we were happy enough with our food. We could choose between three kinds of small nabe (hot pot) when we showed up. After dinner, when the umeshu bar opened, we went and got the "comparison plan" (basically all you can drink for 1hr) @ 1200 yen, which is a bargain. In addition to umeshu, they have a variety of fruit-based liquors like yuzu and strawberry. No need to pay there--it'll get added to your tab. You basically just point at the bottle you want to try and the bar staff will pour you a glass. You do have to drink the entire glass before ordering another, so realistically, if you actually want to savor what you're trying, you'll only get around to about three drinks in an hour (each drink's cost is 600yen so you can do the math depending on your drinking speed). You also probably don't want to head back into the baths afterwards if you've had three glasses. =) We attempted to beat the private bath competition in the morning by waking up at 6AM (breakfast starts at 7AM), but we forgot everyone does pre-breakfast baths anyway, so we didn't succeed. Breakfast is Japanese food only, and we were stuffed (free rice/miso soup refills if you really want to overload yourself), but it was all good. They offer checkout time extensions at a certain rate, but we had booked a plan that let us check out at noon (presumably to help mitigate the checkout chaos). We ended up checking out around 11am anyway, but it was pretty quick and we were wisked away to the train station immediately by shuttle. Overall, we thought it was a great value for the price. Just know that it can get crowded if you're counting on the private baths being available and have plan Bs if you're booking a room during a busy season (= arrive early and make a beeline for the baths).

We booked a room for three nights for two adults and two kids in the old building. When we saw the room we decided we couldn't stay as it was old and tired. But as we had prepayed we decided to try and negotiate a room in the new wing. However these rooms only sleep three. We ended up with two rooms, but this took an hour and a half of negotiation and was exhausting.

The hotel is very keen for you to have the hot pot meal rather that the BBQ for dinner. When we wanted two BBQ dinners and only one hot pot,the front desk seemed incredulous. When we fronted up at the BBQ on the third night we had a different menu to our first night, and different to everyone else in the restaurant.

Another hour later we convinced the restraunt that just because this was the second BBQ meal of our stay that we would not be served a lesser menu.

The bar opens for two hours from 10 pm. The onsens are only average. The food is OK in a mass produced sort of way, and falls well short of what can be had in most restaurants. But the portions are large. And they offer all you can drink for an hour for 2500 Yen.

Don't come to this hotel and expect an easy time or a gracious experience. Don' come with four people and expect to fit in one room. And if you do come only stay one or two nights and only in the new building (with the outside baths).

I went there with my family and relatives. They don't serve you like a 5-star ryokan but they give you lots of extras, though only limited time slots. 1. they have free dairy drinks, sorbet after onsen. 2. they have free Samue (traditional worker's attire) instead of Yukata which is usually served but not really suitable as a nightwear. 3. they offer you a free beer and ramen at 11pm (only for 30min). Anyways, the hot spa is great, especially the one in the main building; they have two different springs. The room was very wide with western bed and Japanese tatami mats. We preferred futon on tatami which can also be done as the room is very spacious. Very satisfying.

Service was excellent. Reception staff could speak good English.

They provided little snacks in the room as well as tea bags and bottled water.
Toiletries and shampoo/soap/conditioner were provided in the room as well.

We have booked to include dinner and breakfast as well.
For dinner we could choose between hot pot or bbq. We choose bbq and enjoyed it very much with duck meat, pork, beef abc veg. The food was delicately prepared and feels like 4 course fine dinner. Rice was cooked at spot and very yummy. Sashimi was served too.
We had a hearty meal.

They served free ramen for supper as well.

For breakfast, it was mainly fish, soup and rice. It was enjoyable.

There are public onsen baths as well as 3 private baths which do not require reservation. The 3 keys to the private baths will be hung at the entrance and once you see it, you could use it. Very convenient.

Do join in the fun and wear the ryokan outfits for the meals and onsen.

For those that drive, they will do valet parking for free and they do accept tips. Great!!

They sell souvenirs and local souvenir food and there is a specific time when you buy you get discount. Do check it out.

Overall I loved this place and can’t wait to be back.

This was the highlight of our Tokyo trip! It was a peaceful and relaxing oasis away from the bustling city in Tokyo. There were 3 private onsen at a first come first serve basis and we were able to try 2 of them. There were also public hot-springs available which were separated by male/female. Complimentary snacks and beverages were available in the lounge area and also at a couple of places located on the first floor and near the public shower area. Note: You must take a shower and wash your hair prior to entering the hot-springs. For the women's public shower, everything you would need was provided in the adjacent locker/changing area (hair-dryers, hair-ties, face lotion, toothbrush and toothpaste, combs, towels, shampoo and conditioner, body-wash)

Food was amazing there. Our breakfast and dinner were included in our stay and every course was displayed beautifully and was tasty. The sashimi was so fresh and delicious. I loved it.

Our room was rather large considering it's in Japan. We had a tatami mat living room area with tea and snacks provided (also sold in their souvenir store at the lobby if you want to bring a pack home). The room was clean and comfortable. "House slippers" and Yakata are provided for your stay and all the guests just wear this around the premises. The toilet was in a separate room of the shower and sink area. Note: a separate pair of indoor shoes are located in the bathroom as it's customary to switch from the house-slippers into the bathroom slippers when you enter the restroom.

Overall, we had a wonderful time at mizunoto and would definitely highly recommend this place to our family and friends if you want to experience the Japanese culture and cuisine.
