Christmas at Iya Onsen
Hotel Iya Onsen was the magical getaway we were hoping it would be, and more. We were there for two days over Christmas and would have loved to stay longer. The onsen is peaceful and offer great views over the river and the meals were wonderful. We very stupidly managed to leave our passports behind and the hotel staff quickly arranged a courier to our next hotel in Osaka. They were so helpful and nice and we can't thank them enough.

It is located in the middle of the valley Iya. It has its own cable car for going down the valley for open air onsen. Really enjoyable experience and stay.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great staff n location surrounded by mountains but just a little too far from station. The shuttle service is rather limited and if to grab a taxi it will cost you about 4000 yen. Nonetheless I love the setting of this ryokan and the novelty of taking the cable car to the outdoor bath. Wish that this outdoor bath water can be warmer tho..Enjoyed too the music CDs provided in the room they keep you relax. Overall experience is great.
