Baien is one of the best in Yufuin.  The ryokan wouldn’t be luxury.  But if you are the first time to visit Yufuin, I would highly recommend it as the location is perfect for sightseeing.  Perhaps, if you are the first time to stay at ryokans, this would be for you.  Then I would recommend booking a room with a private hot spring in the annex building.  Others wouldn’t be special.  The room is truly relaxed, functional, and modern.  It’s bit far from the main building.  You have to walk bit longer to the dining room for dinner and breakfast, lobby, public large hot springs etc.  The ryokan wouldn’t be able to accept a request of meals served in the room.  You may feel troublesome if it’s rainy or snowy.  However if you want to chill out at the ryokan, it’s truly worth it.  Also there are wonderful public hot springs in-house.  You will be able to see dynamic views of Mt.Yufudake in good weather while soaking in the baths. It was awesome without any comparison.  All staff tends to be proactive, friendly, and helpful.  Overall there were many families, couples, and groups in-house when we stayed in here on weekdays.  The ambience was tranquil, cozy and relaxed.  Only my issue is that we had to go up a slope from the parking lot and there were the long stone steps on the way to go to the room from the front desk.  If you bring small kids or elderly people with weak feet, I wouldn’t recommend the room in the annex building.  You may feel some stress when you move in-house.  Then if compared to other luxury ryokans in Hakone, Atami, Izu etc., food experience for dinner and breakfast wouldn’t be special.  But overall, it was really a comfortable stay for us at Baien.  Anyway the best season to stay in here would be in spring, early summer or fall.  The well-kept large garden in-house is amazing for each season.  You must be excited to explore in the garden while seeing superb views of Mt.Yufudake.  It’s truly worth taking a walk there.  Don’t forget to check a weather forecast before booking a room !  If it’s fine, just go ahead !  We hope to return back here one day. Have a nice trip !  *Welcome to receive any questions about this ryokan from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Agoda or Booking.com
