this would be my choice in hot springs again. the staff are awesome in the restuarant right below. the food was even better. any thing you order i have a feeling would be good. the hotel is charming, it is what it is, enjoy it, the only thing is that the train went by at 1:30 am and 4:30, maybe a room to the back of the hotel. but it is an old train station, lol. the room was really clean, we walked to the hot spring, and around town. very relaxing!
