A traditional experience

Posted Dec 6, 2011 on Hotels.com
The room was beautiful, overlooking lake ashi and mount fuji. The tatami floor beds were very comfortable. We went in november, when the trees were in reds, oranges, yellows etc, but the heavy fog meant we could hardly see far. The modern Prince hotel was a 5 min walk away but the restaurant was expensive so we had cup noodles for dinner. Between Prince and ryuguden was a small shopping mall but everything closed at 5pm. The izuhone bus took one hour to get to odawara station. On the whole, food and transport was inconvenient but the room and surroundings made up for it.

Overpriced and inconvenient

Posted Nov 8, 2011 on Hotels.com
Booked Ryuguden for 1 night in Oct 2011 enroute to Tokyo. Was impressed by the initial pictures I found online but found it to be a huge disappointment. The view was acceptable, but that was about it I feel Ryuguden could offer me. 1) Inconvenient transport. It was nowhere near the main transport route, with only 1 bus to the hotel. However, the last bus is really early - around 5pm, and strangely we were told that the Hakone Free pass does not cover this part. The location is also not linked to the bottom part of Hakone and a huge detour would have to be made. 2) Overpriced - with other ryokans offering lower prices at much more central locations, Ryuguden looks overpriced. Honestly, it was a disappointing stay to start the trip.

Ryuguden in Hakone, Japan

Posted Aug 18, 2010 on Hotels.com
We felt this was an amazing, quiet, older Japanese hotel/ryokan with stunning views of the Lake. My two regrets were that we only booked one night and we did not have our meals in the room--we so wished we had ordered the breakfast and dinner in the room, but they need at least 3 days advanced notice. The dining room/restaurant on the property next door was mediocre at best. This property is in a somewhat remote location, but that is part of its charm and there are ample buses which can take you into the busier parts of Hakone. We loved our stay here!!!

Ryuguden - Hakone

Posted Jun 7, 2010 on Hotels.com
Mycket trevlig personal som ansträngde sig för att tala lite engelska. Läget är fantastiskt med utsikt mot Mount Fuji, men det var lite trixigt att hitta dit. Vi gick längs med stranden från Moto-Hakone och det tog ca 40 minuter. Observera att det inte finns någon restaurang på hotellet. Vi hänvisades till ett närbeläget stort hotell, men den italienska restaurangen i hamnen i Moto-Hakone kan varmt rekommenderas istället! Jättegod frukost och pizza..
