Tenseien Hakone Reviews
May 10, 2007
I recently stayed at this hotel in Hakone. Its part of the Tensien Hotel but in a seperate building next door.
It is located about 12 minutes from the Hakone-Yumoto train station and you can take a taxi for around 1,500 yen. Returning back to the station is an orange bus that leaves from the front of the Tensien Hotel and cost 100 yen.
The area around the hotel is very pretty and there is a waterfall at the back of the hotel.
There are approximately 5 onsens in the hotel both indoor and outdoor. They are located in the Annex part and the hotel next door which you go into and can use the onsens located there also. They are seperate sexes so one for men and one for woman certain times are allocated for each onsen for men and womans use. Then they change at allocated times so you would have a chance to go in each of the onsens should you wish.
The rooms are Japanese style and divided into two seperate areas a sitting area with lounge chairs and then the traditional Japanese tatami room. You are given traditional japanese bedding futons which you put out yourself.
The hotel ammenties include:
TV, Hot water and Green tea, Air conditioning, Heating, Telephone, Refrigerator, Hair Dryer, Soap, Shampoo, Rinse, Toothbrush, Razor, Shower Cap, Comb, Brush, Bathrobe (Japanese Style), towels. Your room also has private bath, shower and toilet. Also available in the hotel Restaurant, Night Club, Midnight Snack Corner, Banquet Hall, Conference Room, Spa, Japanese Outdoor Bath, Vending Machine, Game Center, and Table Tennis .
The cost per person per night for the room was 6,500 yen which didnt included breakfast or dinner. I recommend buying some food and drink from the local convience store by the station and the room has a refridgerator so you can put food and drink in there.
The room I had over looked a japanese style garden with pond and Japanese Koi fish.
Although the building it self is a little old it is still clean and comfortable as well as affordable.
I can highly recommend this hotel.

Welcome to Tenseien. This large Ryokan Hotel (see definition of ryokan styles below) has 105 Japanese-style rooms, and all rooms have their own private baths and toilets. There are four shared indoor hot spring baths at Tenseien (same gender only) and most of them are open 24 hours a day. The two shared outdoor hot spring baths have a view of Tenseien's surrounding Japanese garden. The women's outdoor hot spring bath is open from 5:00am to 12:00 midnight while the men's outdoor hot spring bath is open 24 hours a day. All meals are Japanese-style and they are served in the privacy of the guest rooms. Check-in time is after 15:00 and check-out time is before 10:00 am. Parking is available. Important Travel Warning: It takes a long time to go through customs at Narita International Airport and then travel to Hakone. If your plane lands in the early morning at Narita International Airport, you can make it to a Hakone ryokan in time for dinner. However, if your plane arrives after 10:00am you WILL NOT be able to make it in time for dinner. You should stay at least 1 night in Tokyo and then go to Hakone the next day.
