We stayed here just one night and it was an amazing experience. Right from checking in to the hot springs bath, dinner in the robes they provided to breakfast the next morning. Spotless, of course. Just a wonderful experience overall . Would do it again in a heart beat .

The overall experience here was decent. The rooms were quite comfortable and the private onsen was really nice. The dinner was only okay and the hotel facilities desperately need an update--dark hallways, etc... It is about 20 minutes from the train station in Hakone. They speak very little English. The ryokan experience is a must-do in Japan, at least for one night, but maybe not here.

Stayed for 2 nights in a Fuga room with its own small hot spring bath. A bit of a frosty reception when we first arrived before official check-in time but once we returned later everything was great. Our first experience in a Ryokan and we really enjoyed it. The room was spacious with a living room and bedroom, beautifully set out with tatami mats and paper screens. We had a set meal of many courses the first night - some we liked more than others but the presentation and service were first cl... Read more

We stayed one night at this Ryokan and we loved it. The service is great, very friendly stuff. The room is very good with an onsen in the room with hot waters from the Vulcan.We didn't read the small printing and we only realised they didn't serve dinner in the room when we arrived. They only serve dinner between 6pm and 8pm, a traditional japanese dinner which was very good. Breakfast needs also to be booked at a specific time. There's Wifi in the lounge but not in the rooms. To get there ther... Read more

It's my first visit at Hakone. I love the peaceful environment of the mid-hill with so many colorful flowers surrounded. The Ryokan is quite historical and they are quite proud of that. They provided welcome tea and dessert when we check-in. My room is located in the old house (main building), with in-room open air hot spring. The room is clean, the tatami are comfortable, and the toilet is simple but enough for my stay. There's no bath room but we can have a shower beside the open air hot spri... Read more

We stayed here recently and were very pleased with everything. We stayed in two different rooms because we booked a bit late, but everything worked out wonderfully well. Our first room had an in room bath, which we enjoyed and was in the newer part of the ryokan. The meals for this room were served in the dining room and that was fine. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and the breakfast and appreciated the choice of a western or Japanese style meal. They were also very helpful related to vegetari... Read more

Just left the Mikawaya after a two-night stay and have rarely felt so relaxed (and so clean!). Our room was in the modern wing and featured its own mini-onsen on the balcony, allowing the whole family to bathe together in the open air. It was our first experience of a traditional Japanese inn and at every turn the staff were friendly and informative. We loved wearing our yukatas, even to the dining room. The keiseki evening meal was utterly exquisite and the high point of our trip so far. The ... Read more

They have a staff who speaks English quite fluently so no worries about that. This place is over a hundred years old and you can enjoy the old historic architecture including the Onsen spa. The food was superb. They changed the menu for us when we found a dish we'd rather not eat. There is a bus stop in front of Mikawa-ya and they also have a free parking space. I've stayed at much more expensive ryokans, but they didn't satisfy me this much. Looking forward to visiting them again. 歴?????... Read more

Mikawaya is a wonderful Ryoken with community and in room onsen (if you get the rooms with open air bath or the double wide suite they have private onsen). This is a lovely, historical old place (main building ~130 years old) with charming staff who make your stay special. We had a Japanese style room with open air bath and onsen, it cost around $500 a night and included breakfast and dinner. Our room did not have an indoor shower or bath, which we didn't mind because we loved the outdoor shower... Read more

This is an 18th Century Ryokan built over a hot springs. We saw things there that you only see in museums, including three large meeting rooms with the original screens. Set along side a beautiful stream carved into the mountainside, we had a room with a private Japanese style hot bath situated in a rock garden. On the fourth floor you can bathe outdoors in another hot spring. This is an old building so you need to appreciate vintage inns, but I found it wonderful. They had, however, modern... Read more

Mikawaya is a real gem. A real sense of culture and history oozes off it, and the rooms are wonderfully decorated. The staff are some of the friendliest and hospitable people i've ever come across, where nothing was too much trouble. Wifi is only available in the reception area, but the breathtaking views in the surrounding area make it easy to keep away. Lots to do in the surrounding area with a bus stop directly outside the Ryoken. Staff encouraged us to indulge in the Japanese culture that ma... Read more

We stayed in the Japanese style villa so our experience relates to these rooms. Not all rooms are the same and don't all have meals in room like we did. If you do stay in one of these villas you will not be disappointed. loads of room your own garden with own onsen all privately screened from everywhere else and quiet. Or daughters were in the next villa and we couldn't hear them ! breakfast and dinner all served in room by delightful ladies in traditional dress. you are also supplied with yukat... Read more

My husband and I spent the last leg of our Japan trip at the beautiful Mikawaya Ryokan nestled in the mountainside in Hakone. It was a one day stay since it was a bit of a splurge but was worth every single penny. Getting there: We arrived at Odawara station from Kyoto. I highly recommend using either the coin storage here or the luggage forwarding service located at the bottom most floor (after exiting the station, go towards the buses and take both escalators down ...
