Buaiso
Ranked #62 of 145 Hotels / Ryokan in Yufu
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Love the modern and elegant style of this ryokan.
Our room is a single-storied semi-detached cottage with a private onsen bath in the balcony. We have stunning scenery overlooking Yufuin. At night, we can see many stars in the clear sky.
We love the design and layout of the room, which is impeccably clean and well-equipped with all kinds of amenities (including a Nespresso coffee machine, and a set of L'occitane products for each guest). Drinks in the fridge (coke, beer, juice) are all free for consumption.
The restaurant serves amazing food. Our kaiseki dinner and breakfast was very delicious. Because of this, even the rate per person (30,000+ yen) was not cheap, we think it really was very good vale for money.
Location wise, the ryokan is high up in the mountain and is approx 10-15 mins ride from yufuin station. The hotel arranged a cab to pick us up from the station for 2000 yen only (cheaper than us getting the cab ourselves). The ryokan also offers helicopter service to various locations. From Fukuoka, the journey costs a around 90000 yen for a 30-min ride.
I would definitely go back again.

Reviewed 4 January 2013

Stayed here for one night at 206 with a private hot springs bath tub outside the terrace area. The room was more than large enough for two people to sleep in and play around. Given the size the of the room, the TV was a bit too small.

The dinner was great, but it felt more like a Yakiniku restaurant rather than a traditional Japanese style kaiseki place. However, the meat that was served was really tasty.

One thing that concerned me during our stay was the way they had made a reservation for our massage and the way they handled to follow up and remember us by.

I have clearly mentioned that the massage reservation was for two. Initially, the person who helped me make a reservation told me that the massage will be done in a series starting from my GF and then I.

After we finished our dinner and we were about to head back to the room from the restaurant, one of the staff told us that both of us can go at the same time - this sounded to me we can start our massage simultaneously. So we thought we'd go at the same time, only to find out that the masseuse can only do massage one person at a time. So I ended going back to the room waiting for 40 minutes until my GF's massage was finished.

Next morning, after we finished our breakfast, the same female staff came up to us and mentioned that we arrived here by taxi, which was not true. They have been informed that we arrived with a rental car. Perhaps they've mixed up with another couple on the same day, but two mistakes in a row didn't make us feel all that welcome. We might visit the place again to check and see if the service has improved. Otherwise, we would look for another place in the main Yufuin area next time.
