I was a bit apprehensive with the dinner and breakfast as my son and husband had dietary requirements but they catered to our food requests. The multi course dinner and breakfast was excellent. In our multi course dinner, there was sashimi, crab, and sukiyaki. We were stuffed towards the end. And the food was tasty.The onsen experience was wonderful as well. And the rooms were spacious and very clean. They got me a shorter length yukata, and a children size one for my son. I travelled with my 2.5 year old son and he was welcomed and the inn was spacious enough for him to wander around without being a bother. It's near the Gora station and easy to get to. The hotel helped us arrange for a baggage delivery service to Hakone-Yumoto station. I wouldn't mind staying another night if I had more time. When I first booked the place, I felt it was pricey but the experience was worth every penny.

Most fantastic stay in this small family owned ryokan. Very easy access from station. The ryokan website clearly outlines the direction. It is quiet, clean, peaceful and an ideal place to remove all stress from the body and mind. The staff speaks several languages which is a tremendous asset and is always smiling. They do help a lot in explaining the etiquette which is useful to avoid blunders ! The food was exquisite prepared from fresh produce and varies every day. Good place to taste the local specialties. The onsens (indoor and outdoor) are segregated as in all onsens in Japan. However one can book for 30 mins for private use as from 19h00. It was blissful ! My spouse enjoyed this. An advice : book immediately as you check in so as to get the best time suited. A suggestion : a lounge bed after the onsen would have been the final touch to perfection. We will definitely stay at Lalaca without hesitation should we go back to Japan.

This was a memorable stay in Hakone. The Ryokan is well-appointed, the rooms are spacious and clean, and the view from the room is great! The location was great for us -- it allowed us to explore the phenomenal Hakone outdoor museum on foot on the evening of our arrival and starting early on the cable car part of the Hakone loop next morning. The food -- both dinner and breakfast -- were very well appointed. They accommodated my wife's vegetarian request very well.

My husband and I stayed here for our last night in Japan, and it was so lovely! After coming from hectic Tokyo, Lalaca was peaceful and quiet. We arrived about 1pm, and knowing it was too early to check in, we left our bags with no problem and went off to explore the region by cable car, ropeway, boat, and bus (in that order). We arrived back at Lalaca before 6, just in time for dinner. A very pleasant young woman who spoke excellent English showed us to our room and explained how everything worked.

After donning our yukata, we enjoyed a fabulous multi-course traditional dinner, the best meal of our trip. All dishes were presented beautifully in the pretty dining room overlooking the forest. So relaxing!

After dinner, it was off to the onsen. Here's where we ran into our only snag. While we booked the private onsen, we couldn't find it! My husand and I each went into our respective areas to disrobe and pre-bathe, and then looked for some entrance to the private onsen. No luck, so we enjoyed our separate baths. When we emerged, we noticed what I think was the private onsen accessed directly off the downstairs recreation room (not from the changing rooms). The sign for it was only in Japanese. I hope the otherwise wonderful owners provide directions or a sign in the future for non-Japanese speaking guests.

Overall, though, the inn was wonderful. We had the traditional Japanese room. It was very spacious. Hot water and tea-making supplies were provided. The futons were very comfortable. Our room had toilet facilities but no shower; however, it was no problem as there's one in the onsen bathing area.

After an equally fantastic breakfast, we relaxed a bit more and then planned to walk down to Gora Station. However, the owner, without us even asking, offered to drive us - great service!

Lalaca is a beautiful, small inn in a peaceful and quiet area, and hope we can return for a longer visit one day.

I wish I could give them 6 stars. We stayed here after an arduous climb and descend of Mt. Fuji. So great to get to the onsen, which has this odd looking milky water. They say it's the mineral content that causes it to appear that way. Really nice that you can book the private onsen as well. The meals were amazing. Little courses that really add up. Very tasty. Excellent presentation. The staff are so incredibly friendly. They helped us find accommodations in Hakone when we couldn't get to Kyoto thanks to Typhoon Jebi. They're closed on Tuesday so they couldn't host us. They put us up in a nearby hotel that paled in comparison. If you want to visit Hakone, you need to stay here. The best!!!

Room tip: Go for the Japanese style room.
