Here's the proper review for the:
Japanese Room with Private Hot Spring Bath, Kasei, 1F
In short, extremely expensive (I paid over 1,000 dollars for 2 nights) just because of the lack of care of the room and general appearance of the hotel. However, the property and experience is like no other in the area, and the food is much better than you could get in a Michellin rated restaurant.
VIEWS ARE SPECTACULAR. You can't get a better view anywhere else in Gora. The property is huge, the Garden is probably almost as big, and prettier than Gora Park, really special.
The outdoor bath is great, however one of the indoors (the one that in the evening is set for Men only) is no good. Needs restoration... it looks too dark, dirty and unsanitary.
The room itself is tiny. Pictures available in Expedia makes the room look hube. NO, it is very small, definitely no more than 2 can stay here. Not a bad size for 2 in a ryokan, but is good for everyone to know.
I don't mind the old looks of the room. It keeps the old Japanese house style alive and I like that. HOWEVER, the room is not kept well. Spider webs, dust, smashed bugs never cleaned off the walls, dirty/darker of constant use areas on the doors due to lack of cleaning, which could be easily cleaned by the staff, areas on the walls that have been just scratched for too long. The rooms need a VERY GOOD CLEANING, PAINT, and better up keeping, specially for the price they are charging. The hotel also needs some up keeping.
