Very Authentic Experience
Posted Sep 25, 2015
We stayed here during "Silver Week" - a week with 3 holidays that gives everyone a 5-day weekend (that happens every 6 years). We're thinking that because of this, that's why the room was almost $450 (Western-style with private open-air bath, but no dinner). First of all - you need to order dinner. Since you must check in by 7 pm, either eat beforehand, or order the dinner as there is very little around where the hotel is. Frankly, the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. Next - the open air bath was much smaller than expected and not very comfortable (felt like I was going to get a splinter from the wood siding). Room was spacious, but seemed quite dated, as did the rest of the place. For breakfast, we had a buffet and it was very authentic/traditional with various fish that you can cook on a grill on your table. All of the fish had their heads on, or skin, etc. We didn't really eat much of anything and were out in under 5 minutes. If you're up for the culture part, go for it. We thought we were, but at 8 am, not so much. The staff were very nice and helpful, although not sure how many Western visitors they get. Overall, we thought that this was way overpriced for what we got and not at all worth it.
