8/10 Very good

Staff was incredible. Very helpful and friendly. The location is beautiful but the decor a little outdated. The room was very smokey but ok once we opened the window to air it out. The food was EXCELLENT. The outdoor onsen was my fave. I would stay here again despite the smokey room - just make sure you request a non-smoking room!

Absolutely amazing!
Ok, so when I booked I must have been rushed and just thought it was expensive. Turns out I got the dinner and breakfast option and was so glad I did. The 9-course dinner will leave you wanting it to never end and yet unable to eat much more. The property has three private Onsen (hot-springs) which makes things just so much more convenient. And the town itself is lovely. There are direct (and slow) local buses from nearby and from Osaka and Kyoto. Watch luggage on local buses as there is no storage other than your lap. I highly recommend this town and hotel

Serenity in one spot
Stayed overnight to try out the full ryokan experience. The place is quite wonderful. All three onsens were extremely relaxing, the scenary was eye catching and the staff were quite helpful. The dinner and breakfast were best food experiences I've ever had. The gentleman that personally checked in me in and the waitress spoke English so I never felt left out. I just wished I stayed another night.

Traditional Japanese Hotel at a popular Hot Spring
This was our first time at a Ryokan and an Onsen. We arrived at Shin-Kobe station and took the subway to Tanigami, changed there for a train to Arimaguchi, then changed again for a train which shuttles between Arimaguchi and Arima Onsen. The transfer from Shin-Kobe was accomplished with a single ticket for ¥720. The 12 tatami mat Japanese style room was used for breakfast, dinner and sleeping. We had a maid which served our meals and reconfigured the room as required for eating or sleeping. The same maid looked after us for the entire duration of our stay.
