    good onsen hotel

    nice economical well maintained onsen hotel close to Tazawako ski field. the two rooms we had were a nice size, new tatami matting and usual onsen hotel service and conveniences. wifi in the lobby only i believe although i didn't use it. evening meal and breakfast were good but Japanese cooking only. baths were ok, nothing special but the onsen water has the perfect onsen smell but clear. some of the hotels nearby have milky onsen water. i would recommend this hotel and would stay again. with breakfast and dinner we got a good price for our one night stay.

    這次住了兩晚。 以這價位來說,房間很滿意。 和式早餐很美味,同行家人希望兩天早餐能多點變化,但我吃得很開心 :) 晚餐2700日元/人,覺得普通,可以去田澤湖車站前解決就好。 溫泉覺得有點弱,是比較可惜的一點。
