Stayed for 2 night in November at this lovely hotel. My husband and I were picked up by the free hotel shuttle from Odawara at11.30am. The shuttle service made the journey easy and pleasant, but has to be pre-booked. Check-in was a breeze and the counter staff spoke adequate English. We were pleasantly surprised as we were upgraded to a Junior Suite, with a large, clean and comfortable room, and a balcony facing the Lake Ashi.
As the restaurants in town closed early (about 5pm!!), we had our dinner at the hotel bar. It served very yummy pizza and duck-confit at very reasonable price. As it was Happy-hour time, the alcohol were at half-price, that was a nice bonus. We had a good rest that night after using the onsen, and the lack of wifi in the guest room did not bother us, as we were there to relax.
A bigger surprise came the next morning- when the morning fog lifted- Mt Fuji was right in front of our balcony! Simply majestic and breath-taking. Of course the breakfast was made more pleasant by the serenity of the area, and beautiful view of Lake Ashi and Mt Fuji.
We did some sight-seeing using the pirateship, cable cars, trams, etc, and were lamenting the lack of time to see more of Hakone. Would definitely return to explore the town better, and would stay at Hakone hotel again.
