Firstly I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my first trip last year. This year I booked standard Japanese style mountain view room and was shocked to be assigned a room facing the train station. I enjoyed last trip more likely because my Japanese GF booked us a deluxe room which faces the mountain and river. The room is double the...

Suimeikan is a very large hotel (by Japanese standards). The three onsen baths are excellent. The food was average/ OK, but nowhere near the standards of the best ryokan in Japan. I would recommend for families and large groups. But definitely not the best option for a romantic get-away.

Four stars for service and onsen facilities. Efficient train station pick up and check-in. Excellent English speaking nakai explained everything clearly and served tea and confection. Three onsens facilities located in different buildings with different atmosphere. Nice to try them all. Kira No Ryu restaurant offers great Japanese menu at reasonable price. The hotel was established some 80years ago and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Suimeikan is a ryokan that was established 80 years ago along the Hida River, where it currently remains sitting at the heart of Gero Onsen, one of the three most famous onsen locations in Japan. Guests can experience traditional Japanese culture inside the ryokan, which features a Japanese garden, a genuine Noh stage, as well as ceramic and art works. Guests can also enjoy hot springs with skin beautifying effects in three spots, including an open-air bath with an indoor bath, a large communal scenic bath, and a large communal indoor bath with a hinoki sauna. The communal scenic bath can be used 24 hours a day. We offer a variety of guest rooms in the Seiranso, Rinsenkaku, Hisenkaku, Sansuikaku manors, each built separately and in the style of a tea-ceremony arbor. Guests can also choose from rooms with private open-air baths, as well as between Japanese-style and Japanese/Western-style rooms. In addition to the Japanese kaiseki course served in the guest room, guests can also choose from a French course, Japanese cuisine course, and a Japanese/Western/Chinese fusion kaiseki course. The hotel also features plenty of facilities for plenty of fun, such as a swimming pool, gym, beauty salon, and a bar.
