Good location. Average onsen
The hotel's location was excellent. A stone's throw from Sainokawara Park and the centre of town. The park is a must. We did not have any issue with the noises due to the age of the property that others have commented on, however, the onsen was a little disappointing. Indoor onsen was average, the outdoor one was lukewarm and the private onsen was.. just a tub. Otherwise, we had a pleasant stay in Kusatsu with the snow quality and the nice little onsen town.

6/10 Good

we were a little disappointed with the small room and the lack of amenities. our room overlooked a construction area and you have to wear slippers to get to the private bathroom. the staffs are very nice, the onsen was great and the location was superb. however we can't say the price justifies the room we stayed in.

Beautiful ryokan, especially in winter
Comfortable ryokan with private onsen for reservations and a cost. Cost of private onsen should not be implemented on hotel guests as there was no view which is worthy of the amount. Go for the private onsen only if you feel uncomfortable in the same onsen as other hotel guests.

Snowing in Kusatsu Onsen
We loved this hotel and the design. The front desk, drivers and all service staff were very friendly and helpful despite lack of English. There was one gentleman who spoke pretty good English though. The breakfast was delicious and different for both days. You have to try the soba at Mikuniya. Its so good and goes well with tempura. It snowed on both days we were there and we loved it. Ps try the hotel amd you will enjoy the charm.
