Fodor's Expert Review Tensui Saryo

1320–276 Gora, Hakone, Kanagawa-ken, 250-0408, Japan

Upon entering this cross between a luxury Western-style hotel and traditional inn, guests remove their shoes and socks, sit at a counter bar with their tired feet resting in the hot-mineral-spring bath under the bar, and enjoy a tea or beer as they check in. There are Japanese rooms, Western rooms, and combinations of the two, with raised islands of tatami on top of wood flooring. There are two shared onsen baths, one outdoors and one indoors. Some rooms have private baths on terraces with wonderful views of the mountains.

PROS

  • four rooms have a private onsen on a terrace
  • excellent service
  • easy access from Gora Station

CONS

  • no Japanese food in the restaurant
  • some rooms have limited views
  • due to its central location, it lacks the secluded ryokan experience
