Yatsugatake Royal Hotel
Ranked #1 of 30 Hotels / Ryokan in Hokuto
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Stayed one night here. This hotel was really busy during the time we checked in, I suppose it was peak period in spring. They catered to alot of tour groups from Indonesia, Taiwan etc. We had kaiseki dinner in the hall, food was alright though abit bland. Breakfast was really very crowded so service was abit slow. They had a wide spread of food selection from Japanese to western. It was good we really enjoyed it.

We loved the Japanese style room we stayed in. It was huge. It has a genkan with wooden floors where you can remove your shoes, it's also more than spacious enough for your big luggages. Do avoid dragging your luggages (especially those with wheels) onto the tatami to prevent from scratching it. The bathroom was a typical unit bath though, it doesn't matter as the onsen was the main point we came here. The futons were extremely comfortable.

Would be great to avoid peak period. The lifts and breakfast area can get pretty congested when there are many big groups.

Room Tip: Get the Japanese style rooms for the ryokan experience and better value.

This hotel is comfortable. There isn't a wow factor about the hotel and the bathroom is the "unit bath" as what Japanese call it. There was a picture of the bathroom posted. But I would recommend you using the indoor "public" bath and they have the onsen outdoors. Felt great to soak in there for a bit after a long day of sightseeing. The room is a little bigger than average Japanese hotels. Very, very reasonable price including breakfast buffet. The kids were free except we had to pay half price for their breakfast. My childrens' ages are 6 and 3. On the roof, there is a small dome. During the day, if it isn't hazy, you'll have a beautiful view of the mountains and Mt. Fuji. You'll have great view of the stars and could look into the telescope if the weather permits. When we went, it rained at night so weren't able to enjoy that. So, I got to relax in the onsen longer instead. The sightseeing spots are pretty much within the vicinity. We could have stayed in another hotel right in the middle of everything, but couldn't beat this hotel's price.

Nothing to rate highly. They need to change the name and drop the royal. Just a motel. Beds are a little more than a foot off the floor and back breaking. Bathroom is extremely small. You will need to back in to use. Fixtures are three different colors. Definitely pass this one by.

Room Tip: Just a motel.

This hotel offers a simple, a bit of frills and a very comfortable stay. The onsen (温泉) aka hot spring there was available both in door & outdoor. It was a delightful break in for the hotel guests after a long day of sightseeing.
