I stayed in two nights for business trip. Facilities is old, but, thereforeI I feel history in his hotel.
What I suprised is Wataya besso is very wide hotel. My room is in tower buiilding and it take 5 minutes walking to bath place. And Wataya besso has some hiraya-rooms (that is like banglow) over the river, of course we can be there by walking through the corridor.
The bath is very large and open-air bath is very comfortable. This spring quality is little slippery and that's good. Dishes is delicious, especially onsen-tofu is excellent!
