6.8 Good
Pros: Private onsen for booking is good
Cons: Most employees are non- Japanese and their service attitude in general is good but not truly an authentic Japanese hospitality
5.0 Okay
Pros: The room is clean and the bed is comfortable.
Cons: The private onsen water was warm and not hot enough at night time and it was fine only during the day. This forfeited the purpose of paying a premium to book a room with a private bath if there’s limitation on the time that we could enjoy the onsen. We stayed in the other private onsen with similar pricing in Japan and the others were much better as compared to this one. We also tried one of the 4 private onsens (private onsen #3) at the hotel for the guest to book. The onsen water was warm and even worse than the one in the room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Service at this ryokan was excellent. The front desk spoke English. We had shuttle service from the bus stop (had the Information Office call) to the ryokan and we could be dropped off and picked up anywhere as they gave us a phone to call after we checked in. The shuttle driver heard us saying that we were having trouble walking with the geta they lent out so he hurried into the ryokan before we got out and handed us our regular footwear. We had free drinks--coffee, tea, juice--and popsicle in the lobby from 3 to 11pm. There were public baths and 4 private outdoor baths sized to accommodate groups or couples or singles with two types of healing waters.The breakfast was awesome. We had a room to ourselves. We sat at a table, on chairs. There was a set Japanese and a Western breakfast. There were many choices and lots to eat. The western style had a lot of meat. The Japanese style was like a kaiseki with many small dishes each with their individual taste. Although the ryokan is located on a slope, it was not too difficult to negotiate a quick trip to town. Because of the price, it was a once in a lifetime experience for us but relaxing and well worth it.
Cons: Can't think of anything I disliked.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I wish I had more time to stay and enjoy a bit longer there.
Cons: None
9.5 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The shuttle service was great, super convenient. The staff and service were really friendly and accommodating. The 11 course dinner and breakfast was delicious!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The service was excellent- from the staff who picked us up from the bus station, the staff who checked us in and all the other staff who attended to us during our stay. The room was big and comfortable and the breakfast was yummy!
Cons: We were given a list of restaurants but we arrived on a Wed and most of the restaurants on the list are closed on Wed- so that was a bit disappointing. Although when we walked around we did find food to eat. Maybe the hotel could time its restaurants closing on those days most of the outside restaurants are closed, so at least we would be assured of a possible food source.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect! Lovely stay and I really appreciated the integration of Japanese culture.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: A relaxing, cultural experience. They've thought of many details to ensure that their guests feel pampered and relaxed. The rooms feel authentic and you're invited to wear Yakata (traditional Japanese robes) during your stay. We didn't use the public baths but the private baths were great. We were spoilt for dinner and breakfast - each included about 3 or 4 courses, which was a great look into a traditional set meal. They weren't our tastiest meals but we still enjoyed them.
Cons: Not much to dislike. Note that the private baths are not on site- it is a 5 minute walk up the hill behind the Ryokan. The Arima area is not very close to the main Kobe area which is probably no problem when you're looking for a getaway at an Onsen.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: a very high-quality traditional hotel which makes you feel special. everything was well done: from greetings to dinner and then to onsen and to sleep overnight. you basically don't need to care about anything, amazing staff will arrange it all for you. and especially we like the dinner and having a coffee in the morning in the library section which looked like a king's palace, no less! wearing yukata was also an experience. It was amazing to dive into slow quiet traditional life after busy Tokyo life.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff were friendly, responsive and clearly took a lot of care and pride in their work. It felt like an honor to stay there! We really enjoyed putting on our yukata and really experiencing this property as our reason for being in Arima Onsen. Their onsen facility is beautiful, the room was comfortable and the food was awesome! We really felt like we got a taste of traditional Japanese hospitality.

Pros: - friendly staff; - made reservation for 1 quad but was able to change to 2 separate rooms at last minute at small additional charge; - quick shuttle service
Cons: - there's a constant strong smoking smell despite that no one in either room smoke - "non-smoking" room doesn't exist but if someone smokes outside the ventilation is not sufficient to dispel the smell; - facilities are very dated especially for the amenities in the room, the bathroom especially - they expect everyone to use the spring baths; - we had a corner room and there's no curtain on one side to block out the light; - wifi is very weak, you had to be close to the entrance to get some decent connection; - food is just so so, lots of jello-coated items, we had better in Atami and Takachiho

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Dinner and breakfast were awesome.
Cons: The main hot spring water spa was in another building. So we had to walk outside.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The excellent care by the staff was beyond any expectation that I could have imagined. The rides to and from the train station, bus station other hotels and attractions around the town was so helpful and unexpected and it made our vacation so much more enjoyable because it was extra easy to get around.
Cons: There’s nothing we didn’t like.
7.5 Good
Pros: The meals, service, and the facilities (especially the bath in Hanamusbi) are superb. There were not many guests during my visit, so the bath was all ours. Do not miss the dinner.
Cons: 1. All the mattresses they had in the room were all filthy with blood and urine stains. When I complained about it, the staff reported that they put covers on them which are thoroughly cleaned. It still felt bad sleeping on it though. 2. I wanted to make a change in a room type (from only breakfast included to both breakfast and dinner included). The staff was not very responsive to my request and had troubles understanding it. It took me three weeks to get what I wanted. 3. Difficulties communicating in English in general. No English menu in writing for dinner. 4. I emailed prior to my arrival that I would like a bus to pick us up at a particular time. No one came and because I was not able to call them, I had to climb the hills with my luggage to get to the hotel.
10.0 Excellent

Cons: None
9.5 Excellent

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Tofu is very good :)
7.0 Good
Pros: The friendliness of the owner
Cons: The onsen facilities. To get a bath in iron water one hes to walk uphill, in the cold. When getting there the baths is disappointedly small . The iron bath can only fit comfortably 2 persons. Besides, I disgustingly experienced a Chenise man with his 6-7 yrs old son dipping into the clear water pool without pre-washing and a group of 3 Chenise men doing the same. I was in the the iron pool so they could not fit in and they they headed dor the clear water pool. i had to leave the complex, and going baxk to Notori for the clear water pool. The hote owner has to teach Chinese tourists how to take a bath in onsens, otherwiise we would end up bathing in Chinese pissess. Gone was the day when only Japanese gentlemen visit onsens.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast is scrumptious. Great! "Silver" bath is available in the ryokan. For "golden" bath, we need to walk to the other bigger hotel, it was bigger and more bath pools in that property, which was a great deal! For those who book with dinner, dinner is served in the other hotel. It is fun to wear the bath rope and wooden sandal around/to the other hotel. Storage of luggage before check-in and after check-out is possible and it is free of charge.
Cons: The receptionist could barely speak English. Information is printed on a paper with multiple languages for guests' convenient, but other requests/communication is a bit hard to achieve. Transfer to/from bus/train station is only limited to 3pm for check-in and 10am for check-out. If you arrive/depart at other timing than the stipulated time by the ryokan, you will need to walk about 7-10 mins from/to the stations. Not particularly far but it is uphill towards the ryokan. Kindly take note.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Super nice staff Free shuttle-bus in arima area

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Superb dinner course! We enjoined a real first-class kaiseki experience delivered by the team led by chef Matsuoka-san, a kind gentlemen and extremely dedicated to offering only the highest possible service to his guests. All the other staff were also genuinely friendly and customer-oriented all the time. Check-in / check-out hours very flexible. Both of the hot spring rooms inside the ryokan were spacious and wonderful to enjoy, especially the one with the iron kettle tub. Great value for money given onsen-ryokan tend to be expensive in Japanese hot spring areas!
Cons: Room was averagely spacious and we could follow the conversations of the guests upstairs and the couple nextdoors. Only 2 hotspring bathing rooms available inside the ryokan, of which the one with the iron kettle tub was occupied most of the time. However, a stay includes free entrance to the hot spring of a ryokan down the road, which makes up for this inconvenience.
7.5 Good
Pros: The hotel is beautiful, staff nice and helpful, fantastic dinner.
Cons: Our beds in the Japanese style room were incredibly uncomfortable. They are not futon beds but something more towards hospital beds to help people with physical impairments or the elderly, which would be ok, if the mattresses were not the worst I have tried in years.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s a Amazing place to experience the japan hospitality and the hot spring! The food was so good! The breakfast, they offer buffet ( you have to choose the plan of the including breakfast) and every single dish in breakfast was delicious! For dinner, I had the Kobe beef dinner and it was delious and it was so much food! staff goes over beyond to help you and accommodate the request. Very helpful. There English is not too good but you know they want to help. The hot spring room was amazing. They have it in two floors!! So if one gets busy you can try the other floor. They also have sauna located in b1 floor and roten buro which means hot spring in outside. They also offer private hot spring room with additional charge but you can reserve it so you can enjoy with your family or with the significant other in the hot spring together. ( it’s additional charge of between $38-70. There is two different services they offer)They have all kinds of bath amenities. ( oil make up remover, shaver, two different brand of shampoo, conditioner and body soap, face soap, face wash in bottle, ankle scraper and peeling gel. All the product is amazing and has collagen or made with the onsen water. You get to use it in the bath and if you like it you can buy it at the gift shop. The gift shop had all kind of stuff from food, clothes, chopsticks. It’s a great way to get a gift for your friends. The room was super clean and the futon and beds were also comfortable. The tatami room was amazing!!
Cons: They didn’t say tattoos are not allowed anywhere when you enter the bathroom but when the lady found out I had one so she told me to leave. Which is okay but after I was leaving three ladies that works there we’re giving me the dirty look and they were taking trash or gossiping about me while I’m right there understanding what they were saying in Japanese. They didn’t even say thank you when you leave the bath house so that killed all the good things that I taught about this hotel. The three ladies that was working in bath area was old ladies and I’m sure they were old school but it was unprofessional to talk shit in front of the customers.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staying here was the perfect way to end a holiday in Japan as all that is uniquely and exquisitely Japanese was able to be experienced here. The view from the room onto ancient trees lightly covered in snow, the incredible kaiseki meal - food and art combined - the relaxing outdoor onsen which is one of Japanese oldest, the friendly attentive staff, and the beautiful yukata to wear made this a very special experience for us all.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: It's our first time to Arima-onsen and Gekkoen left our family an wonderful memory. At arrival, we're already embraced by the hospitality of the staff. With one single call, they picked us up at the train station in just a few minutes and welcomed us warmly at the gate. How warm! Super delicious Kaiseki Dinner and out of expectation Breakfast had brought out the very beauty of Japanese cuisine. It's a MUST-TRY besides Onsen. All 3 Onsen inside the Ryokan and her sister buildings are fantastic. Also the free massage chairs are such a suprise. They just made the whole onsen experience much more perfect. In short, I will definitely recommend Gekkoen to anyone who want to have a genuien experience of Japanese onsen and cuisine. And will revisit her if I shall go to Arima again.
Cons: It's pity that there aren't any drinks auto-selling machine inside the Ryokan building. When we finish Onsen late, we'd always like to buy some drinks but it seems we could only get some at the restuarants, or walk outside... It will be so great if such machines are equipped inside the Ryokan.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our family enjoyed the waterfront location of the hotel even though we had a mountainside view. The staff was amazing. From the person who greeted us at the door to the man who took our luggage to our room (who spoke immaculate English) to the super friendly reception and dining staff, we felt like we were treated as royalty. We have been struck by the high level of customer service in Japan, but this hotel takes it up another notch. The room was huge by Japanese standards, well appointed and extremely comfortable. I would definitely choose this hotel again were I to return to Kobe.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very nice location and an incredible view. The breakfast was a great combination between Western and Japanese.
Cons: All in all the 'look' of the hotel is a bit 1970s. Somewhat 'fresher' and more modern colours would do it some good. Then again, maybe that's also some of the charm of the hotel.

Pros: Great room with nice views! Excellent food with good taste! I will come back woon.
Cons: It was difficult to understand the kaiseki buffet system for us. I think tha it's better to prepare the manual of usage about kaiseki buffet for foreigners.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Wow! Where do I start? The staff are very accomodating and proactive, delivering 5-star customer service. The views from the room were spectacular. We asked to have rooms close by to one another & they certainly delivered! We were able to drop our bags off before check in and they carried it up to our rooms. The rooftop onsen is a must.

Cons: Only few vegetarian dishes in the restaurant (dinner and breakfast buffet)
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are very large and clean. The have many hot spring baths, which are well maintained and monitored. The buffet staff is amazingly friendly and efficient.
Cons: The location is out of the way. The nearest train station is approx. 15-20 minutes away on foot. There Is nothing to do or see right around the hotel. Meriden Park is a 15 minute walk. While the restaurant staff is amazing (among the best we’ve ever experienced), the front desk staff needs training. As an example, we asked two simple questions about the Shin-Kobe station. After conferring with each other in Japanese, one said, “sorry we don’t know.” There was no offer to check or to try to assist. The lobby was entirely empty, and so it was not like they were so busy helping others that they couldn’t help us. I was surprised by this experience because at other hotels in Japan, the hotel front desk staff bent over backwards to help and find answers for us. The same staff also stood by and watched my wife and me lug 4 suitcases to the cab.
