I am going on a trip with my husband for the first time in autumn. Please tell me about a classy hotel or inn with an attentive hospitality. I don’t mind the price and the place. It is a 2-day-trip.

40 years passed since we got married. Our daughter is now independent and the time to spend with my husband has increased. So, I’m thinking of going on a trip together for the first tie in ages. I want to stay at a hotel with a superb hospitality and a luxurious atmosphere. I don’t mind no matter how expensive it is, if I can get some wonderful hospitality.

You can spend your time comfortably wherever you are.

We stayed at this hotel with my family. You can spend the time very relaxed and comfortably. If you don’t like to have a meal at the hotel restaurant, you can ask for the room-service or there are a few restaurants in the Hibiya Park in front of the hotel. It sounds good to have your own bread and drink on the terrace in the Park. You can enjoy shopping or theatre in Ginza 3-chome. The underground station is just at the corner. If you ask for help at the receptionists about the way, they will tell you kindly, politely with a map. If you add, “What do you recommend to visit?”, they will tell you various things. Inside the hotel is huge, so if you don’t like to walk a lot, it’s not recommended. The parking site is dated and each space is narrow. If your car is large, it could be difficult to park.

the classy atmosphere and their hospitality is outstanding

The entire hotel is full of classy atmosphere. The reception is very quiet, so you can check-in and out comfortably. They respond appropriately to your problems or what you don’t understand with attentiveness. The meal at the restaurant is cooked by the top-class chef.

the gorgeous hotle since a long time ago is still there.

Nowadays, many hotels are in financial difficulties and their sevices have been gradually simplified. But in spite of those social circumstances, this hotel has been still keeping its good service, although it is a large scale hotel. The place, Gero has a good access from the Kanto area as well as the Kansai area. And it is full of attractive nature. Spending some time in those aurroundings will be sheer joy and a wonderful memory.

viewing the port, the channel and the European streets

This quiet hotel is suitable for spending your time as a married couple. It is next to the Theme Park, but you don’t hear the noise like the TDL. You can spend a relaxed time at a café or a restaurant, viewing the sea spreading out in front of the hotel, the channel which is flowing on the side of the hotel and the European streets.

enjoy the taste of Shinshu and a hot-spring in a charming hotel

I stayed at this hotel with 10 people at the end of the year. The meal cooked with the local seasonal ingredients and freshly boiled delicious rice using the local product is served. The hot-spring has a men and women changing in turn system. When you walk on the corridor from the annexe to the dining-room or the bath-room, you can enjoy the well looked after garden. The staff move around withut wasting any time and their responses are very pleasant. The hotel is dated, so it wasn’t airtight, compared to other hotels, but I didn’t feel cold, even in the bathroom. There is the national treasure, “Kitamuki Kannon” and a free foot-bathing nearby. The scenery in the surrounding area is perfect.

the important cultural asset hotel

I stayed at this hotel with my family of 4 (a married couple and 2 small children) during the Obon-holidays this year. The hotel has been maintaining the building since the Taisho-era which is now the important cultural asset. It made me feel the history. As we were with small children, we stayed at the annexe and the meal was served in the room. The baths were the open-air hot-spring and the Marble-bath, which looked very classic. There is no elevator but a staircase to go to the 2nd floor. The service was really good. When we informed them about our delay to check-in, they offered picking us up at the station, in spite of this out of business work. It was very helpful. It is a 30-minute-ride on a train on the Bessho-dentetsu-line from the Ueda station on the Nagano Bullet-train-line.

the hotel with a comfortable bath

The rooms are all annexe with a clean image. There is a spacious Japanese-styled room and a room for relaxing. It is a traditional Japanese-styled hotel and you can go to your room, getting down the steps. The open-air hot-spring is located separate from the annexe. It’s not far on foot. The temperature of the open-air hot-spring is luke-warm and the one of the room-bath is much hotter. Both have plenty of spring water. The meal is focused on the Japanese-styled food which is substantial. They have various types of sake, which is satisfactory. The Ayu-fish cuisine was very delicious last time.

It’s Hakone.

The meal is delicious, that’s why I recommend it. The room with an open-air hot-spring is also recommended. It is the natural hot-spring and your skin will become smooth. As it is a hotel, there are no room-attendants. I rather like it. Because there are no hassles. The staff are polite and the meal is delicious.
