The rooms I first booked turned out to not have any showers. There didn't even appear to be showers on the same floor. I asked for a change to rooms with showers and for an extra £50 we were moved up to the 8th floor to Japanese style rooms.

Although advertised as a restaurant and bar onsite, there was no dinner available (perhaps it was out of season). The closest place we could find was a small Japanese cafe with pretty average food, but it was at least good value.

The bar is described as a "Sake Museum" and supposed to open at 8.30pm, but by 8.45 it still was not open with no one in sight so we didn't bother to wait around.

Breakfast is ok.

The hotel, although large, is cozy. The Japanese style rooms are comfortable, with lovely warm bedding and soft pillows. The view of the valley from the room was good.

My bathroom didn't feel particularly clean and it smelt a bit.

There are 2 Onsen, one on the 2nd or 3rd floor (I can't remember) and one on the top floow. The views from the top floor are stunning and it really was a great experience watching the sun set over the valley from the hot spa on the top floor.

We booked the hotel because of the advertised restaurant and bar on site, as after a long drive it is nice to be able to relax in the hotel. As such, I would not stay here again, although it was reasonable value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for Japanese style rooms on a higher floor.

This property takes a ryokan-style of accommodation and upgrades it to an entire hotel. The rooms are small but comfortable and very clean. The restaurant is good, but possibly not worth the price.

The best parts of the hotel are the location and onsen (traditional Japanese public bath). Kutsurogijuku Chiyotaki is in a lovely river valley outside the city, with mountains rising on either side. There are two onsen, with the one on the top floor providing an amazing view of the mountains and Aizu-Wakamatsu city in the distance.

The hotel is a bit of a trek outside of the city centre, so be prepared to catch a taxi from the train station.

One last note about the beautiful onsen: read up on appropriate etiquette before you visit, and you can wear the bathrobe they provide in the room to the onsen and back.

Room Tip: Feel free to book a room with "shared bathroom". You still get an en suite toilet, and use the onsen for bathing.

Staff spoke limited English but they were very helpful going above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. We picked the Japanese room with a view, a great decision. The room was spacious nice view and comfortable. The hotel’s the location can be tricky if you are trying to look the hotel on your own, get a cab at the train station and you will be fine, there are two hotels similar named. – (Remember to always have the hotel name written in Japanese it will save you a lot of time) I would suggest to forward your bags at the Information office in the Aizu-Wakamatsu station and look around town then catch a taxi to your hotel. The onsen have great a view, and it was nice to wake up very early morning and enjoying onsen while looking at the sunrise. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant I suggest to add Breakfast and Dinner in your reservation, trust me. The food is very good. We have a great relaxing time just what we needed.

My Japanese friends chose this hotel because of a sake bar that they have in the hotel, however there are more that this hotel offers.

Guest rooms and restaurant are specious, as well as the hot spring facilities, modern, clean however with gentle local touches.

The set dinner came with 3 - 4 types of local sakes, very dedicated and delicious. Services are superb as many 5-star hotels in Japan. Buffet breakfast contains many Japanese options - good way to experience the healthy local foods. However there are quite enough western breakfast options that would satisfy various needs.

Outdoor hot spring is not big in size, but it is really an experience during snowy days.
