    It was the best ever ryokan!!”

    I have been to yufuin twice and this time I had stayed this ryokan first. To me, this ryokan is very calm and clean, onsen is well equipped. Furthemore, breakfast is really fresh and tasty. Location is little far from the downtown but you can get there by walk within 20min. Next time I will visit this ryokan again. IT IS BEST RYOKAN!! 유후인에서 정말 최고의 료칸입니다. 요리가 정말 맛잇고, 전세탕 여유롭게 사용했습니다. 직원들도 너무 친절하고, 고급스럽습니다. 강력추천합니다!

    Nice stay”

    The ryokan is boutique style with around 10 rooms. We stayed at the lower floor which had included a small private onsen. There are also 4 private onsen available for public use in open area. In general the ryokan was stylish and stay was comfortable. Only drawback was the shower warm water sometimes wasn’t stable.

    Very cosy ryokan in half Japanese - half western style, only 10 rooms here with 4 public onsens. These make us feel private and peaceful. Excellent staff with very good English speaking. Very impressive breakfast. Anyway, the front door will be locked at 9.30pm, therefore we cannot go anywhere outside hotel after this period of time.

    엄마와 가기 딱 좋은 료칸!”

    노천탕과 실내탕이 있는 프라이빗한 료칸이고, 양식구조입니다. 석식도 일식이 가미되어 있는 퓨전요리입니다. 반면에 조식은 일식이어서 너무 좋았어요. 큰 도로앞에 료칸이 있어서 산책로가 없는 것이 좀 아쉬웠고, 주변에 편의점이 없어서 이점도 아쉽습니다. 사장님 직원 분들도 친절하고 위생상태도 깨끗하고 좋아요. 엄마와 같이 가는 여행, 프라이빗한 공간을 원하는 커플이라면 강추합니다.

    Triple Room with Open-Air Bath
    Stayed 3 nights in January 2020

    Excellent”

    1. 버스터미널, 기차역과의 거리 여유있게 걸어내려갈만함 올라올때는 필히 택시 탑승/ 픽업 서비스 없음 후쿠오카, 오이타시내등에서 들어오는 버스가 빨리 끊김. 늦은 시간 까지 택시는 있어서 이동에 불편함 없음. (역에서 숙소까지700-850 엔 정도 약 5-8분) 2. 시설은 흠잡을거 없음. 방 내부 개인 온천은 사이즈가 생각보다 작은데 둘이 들어가는데 문제 없음. 가족탕(실내,실외) 이용객 많지 않아서 자유로이 이용가능. (첫날은 숙소에 저희만 있어서 아주 조용히 지냈음) 3. 가이세키 6,000 엔(부가세 별도) 조식 2,000엔(부가세별도) 로 기억함 가이세키는 한번쯤 먹어볼만함 조식은 메뉴가 같다고 하니 도착 다음날 하루정도 먹을만함. 평점 4.0/5.0 재방문 의사 숙소 위치만 좋았다면 강력히 있음
