Gero is a small town and the hotel is located right across the river opposite the JR station. It was unexpected that the hotel has shuttle bus taking us from the station to the hotel. The hotel is big and is featured with hot spring. We were given a spacious Japanese style room on the ground floor facing the river....

Water quality of Gero is extraordinary as compared with other hot springs I tried before in Japan. The public bath for ladies was nice. Also love the new private bath (need additional charges and reservation). Japanese/Western buffet breakfast was good. This is a big hotel with long history. I stayed in the tatami room of old wing which I did...

Very comfortable and spacious Japanese style rooms. Although the outside of the hotel looks old, the interior has been extensively remodeled. Breakfast is buffet style and dinners are kaiseki. There is a hotel shuttle to the train station but the walk from the station is less than 10 min over the main bridge of the town. I would definitely return...

The hotel is a short walk over the river from the train station. We had one of the smaller western style rooms but did see that they had very nice ryokan room also. Our room was a little dated in decor but fine otherwise. You have to use the public baths to shower/bath. They are quite large and were the...

This hotel, Ogawaya, standing along the Hida-river has very unique spa facility. The floor of the bathroom is all covered with waterproof tatami mats laid from edge to edge, so you'll find it very soft for your naked feet and not very slippery. It is very fun and unique experience (even for Japanese people) to have a bath watching tatami-mats!...

Stayed 1 night at the ryokan styled room and had great memories. Love the spacious room and spa facilities. However, wifi is only available at the reception area but the hotel provide enough sitting area for users .

The rooms are clean and big. They have great facilities for onsen. Their service is impeccable. I definitely got my money's worth. My only suggestion for improvement to them is that they need better stairs to reach the outside hot spring as the stairs can be quite slippery.
