Excellent Ryokan”

It was an amazing stay! It was kinda a bit away from all the happenings around Yufuin, but then again its a small town and its only a stones throw away. The private open bath that we had was quite good and also they have 3 different Onsens that we can use most times of the day! The breakfast was good but the only fault i can find is that we had the same breakfast 2 days out of 3 that we were there. Overall it was fantastic!

Nice stay in Yufuin”

This place has 2 private hot springs and 2 public bath. The location is great, you have to turn into a small road and look carfully for the sign. An old lady runs the place and we got it at a discounted price so overall it was a pretty good deal. The only complaint is that the water feom the hot spring is a bit hotter than the average ones we had around the neighbourhood.

Very near to main street. Just a bit dark at night as there is no street light from main street to Ryokan. What i'm not happy with is, i was requested 1,000 yen for kid which wasn't stated in booking detail. Please be reminded the room has WC and basin but doesn't come with bathroom, you need to walk onsen to bath but is very near, few steps away the room. Overall is good.
