If you look at the price for a single room, and then look at the fact that this is an exclusive 4-star ryokan, you might wonder how it is possible. But here’s the deal: for the budget single bed, you get a small western-style room (en suite) at the very rear of the hotel, with a view of a parking lot. BUT, you also get unlimited access to one of the best outdoor onsens I have been to in Japan, access (either paid or free) to all other facilities, location RIGHT NEXT to Lake Suwa, and really helpful staff. It is DEFINITELY worth it, and if you want a bit more traditional Japanese luxury, then just go for one of the more pricey rooms. Also, free parking.
The fact that you are wearing outdoor shoes inside; this may make it easier for many gaijin, but to me, it just feels wrong when you are at a Japanese ryokan.
Staff, service and onsen facilities excellent. Dinner was surprisingly very mediocre. I would definitely return but not dine there.
Great traditional style ryokan. Staff was always helpful, the meals were exceptional, and the room was comfortable. Location has both public baths and private showers, but I definitely recommend taking the public bath with the outdoor onsen.
The staff was really amazing, went beyong what anyone could wish for in respect of service. REally made a huge effort to ensure, I had a lovely stay.
Classic Japanese ryokan. Great hot springs with indoor and outdoor spas. Plenty of towels. Beautiful courtyards, pleasant lobby, friendly staff. Right by the lake. I hope to stay there again!
With a stay at Hotel Saginoyu in Suwa (Kamisuwa Onsen), you'll be steps from Lake Suwa and Katakura Hall. Featured amenities include luggage storage and coffee/tea in a common area. Free self parking is available onsite.
