Hakone Hisui Hotel

Hakone Hisui Hotel

What kind of resort hotel is Hakone Hisui Hotel?

This is a condominium-style resort hotel with hot springs in Hakone.  The resort is like a hideaway for adults.  It seems that there are many families with children on weekends.  If you are a couple or solo traveler, you may want to stay on weekdays.  There are wonderful spacious rooms with private hot springs.  The ambiance is sophisticated, serene, and tranquil.  The resort would be great for couples, families, solo travelers, or small groups.

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, it would be easy.  A free shuttle service is available from Gora Station.  You need to book it in advance.  *Due to the effects of Typhoon 19, the Hakone Tozan Line between Hakone-Yumoto and Gora Station is under a long-term suspension.  During this period of suspension, bus transfers and Rail Replacement bus services will be operating between Hakone-Yumoto and Gora stations.  It will be restored in late July 2020The Hakone Tozan Line has restarted since the 23rd of July, 2020.  Alternatively, you can take a Hakone Tozan Bus for Togendai from Hakone-Yumoto Station or Odawara Station and then get off at Sengokuharabunka Center Mae Bus Stop.  Then just a 5min-walk from the bus stop to the property.  Alternatively, you can take an Odakyu Hakone Highway Bus from Shinjuku Expressway Bus Terminal and get off at Sengokuharabunka Center Mae Bus Stop.  It takes around 130min by bus.  The bus fare is JPY1,900.  If this is your first visit to Hakone, you may be worried about where you should get off so you may want to show the below Japanese sentence to a bus driver when you get on a bus.  Then you wouldn’t miss the bus stop even if you fall asleep.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend rooms with views of the courtyard.  You can chill out at the terrace with a beer in hand while viewing a beautiful garden.  That’s precious time.  On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend rooms with views of the park.  Those rooms wouldn’t be special.  Overall, the rooms tend to be functional, user-friendly, and modern.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

Facilities tend to be a bit worn out, but the housekeeping was excellent.  The free WiFi reception was excellent in the property.   All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, pajamas, bathrobes, samue outfits, welcome drinks, sweets, bottled water, and a Japanese tea set.  There were REN amenities in the bathroom.  Also, a DVD player, a CD player, and an air cleaner were placed in our room.   Also, this is child-friendly.  Bed rails, amenities, and yukatas, etc., for small children, are available if you request in advance.  You need to pay JPY2,100 if you use a baby crib.

How about In-house Facilities?

There are indoor and outdoor communal hot springs.  All of them are open from 5:00 to 24:00.  Also, there is a private family hot spring.  You need to book it in advance.  It costs JPY3,240 for 60min.  It’s open from 13:00-24:00.  *If you have tattoos and want to use the communal hot springs, use the private family hot spring, or book a room with a private one.   Then there is a convenience store within 5 min walk.  There are vending machines for drinks including beer.  Then Hakone Hisui Hotel is a universal design.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to request a room near the lift.

How about meals?

The food experience was good.  You can choose either Teppanyaki, Japanese kaiseki, or buffet-style Japanese cuisine.  You need to check in by 19:30 if you have dinner on the property.  Also, you can have meals in the sister inn, Tokyu Harvest Club Hakone Koshien nearby.   We often go to the western-Japanese restaurant called SHIKISAI in the sister inn.  The restaurant has great value for money.  Alternatively, you can order room service between 18:00 and 21:00, such as sushi, Unaju, salad, corn soup, pizza, steak, homemade cheesecake, French Fries, beer, champagne, wine, Japanese sake, and cocktail, etc.  Perhaps, you can go out for dinner as there are some local restaurants around the property.  Local papa-mama shops are closing early.  You may want to book a table in advance. 

My impressions

The staff tends to be patchy, but this is Hakone.  I guess it’s OK.  Overall, the price range would be reasonable.  If you want to relax while seeing the beautiful Hakone mountains on the balcony, the resort would be perfect.  Recharge your batteries!  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Hakone Hisui Hotel from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Agoda or Booking.com
