    We really enjoy the out-door hot spring bath and the beautifull scenery of lake and mountains.

    We were very disappointed with the Japanese restaurant dinner's main courses. The portion is about a quarter of what should have been served as a main course. My husband had an appetizer, rice+soup, and a main course. He is not a big eater, but since the portions are so small, as for serving little children, he got hungry within couple hours. It is ok to pay more money for good food as long as it fills you up, and you wouldn't be getting up in middle of the night because you're feeling hungry.

    The Prince Hakone is in a beautiful location, and the rooms are elegantly designed. The added touch of a CD with relaxing music in the room made the experince even more enjoyable. The staff were very courteous, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the Prince Hakone to any I knew visiting Japan, and would stay there again should we ever return.

    I really liked how spacious and comfortable our room and the hotel was. The facilities provided were very good, we enjoyed the buffet breakfast at the hotel and the open air spa was really lovely with very good amenities provided for guests. The setting of the hotel was also very lovely to look around.

    However, we're not going to recommend The Prince Hakone to other people unless they have their own car. The big issue for us was having enough time to get around Hakone to see the sights and only having 2 nights was not enough when the bus transport to The Prince Hakone starts late in the morning and ends by the late afternoon unless we get a taxi every evening, which costs at least 1000 yen each time. If the hotel can work around to help travellers with this issue, let's say by providing a shuttle bus every hour just until 8 or 9 pm from a central location nearby where the public buses are more frequent, I think it would be a huge improvement for The Prince Hakone over anything else they can provide.

    The hotel was very comfortable in a beautiful location. There was a walk from the hotel to the end of the lake which we enjoyed and a boat service to Hokone Machi. We walked from there through the Check-point to some lovely gardens. A relaxing place to stay after a hectic holiday in Japan.

    The restaurants were very very expensive. The hotel provided a shuttle a Chinese restaurant, about 3mins away where the food was cheaper but not inspiring at all.We felt rather cut off as the last boat from Hakone left at 4pm. If you were wanting a Japanese experience this hotel would not give you that. It has an international feel.

    We love the onsen at the Prince! It is extremely relaxing and cleaner than others. There are both indoor and outdoor onsen for you to choose. The Prince also provide very thoughtful amenities like a hairbrush and rubber bands when you enter the onsen facility. The staff are very nice and most importantly, english speaking! If you want to get out of Prince or buy some bento from a supermarket etc, you can make reservation at the reception on the hotel shuttle to Odawara station (40min) which is basically a shopping mall + cafes and restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation for the trip back to Prince! One very good service provided is a free shuttle from Odawara station direct to the hotel on your arrival and departure as the local bus trip is very expensive! The rooms are very clean and comfortable.

    There are very limited choices of dinner places in Prince. Basically, only 2 restaurants that serve food starting from s$80. Our dinner was in a very sophisticated restaurant but food was not all that fantastic. There are more lunch cafes but we did not try them. If you are not willing to spend on food at Prince, I will recommend that you buy your bento meal from a supermarket at Odawara beforehand :)

    We booked a double room (the hotel's smallest) and it was by far the biggest, most luxurious room we stayed in during our Japanese holiday. Terrific bed, beautiful Pola bathroom products, great aircon, small balcony. Had dinner in the Japanese restaurant - Nakamon? - and it was odd and expensive. Breakfast was included with our package. Had this in the French restaurant and it was fantastic. Used the onsen a couple of times. Wish we'd stayed two nights.

    Not so much a complaint but a warning - the meal at the Japanese Restaurant was odd. Beautifully presented, but the meal was tiny. We had choice of 5.30 and 7.30 and at 8 were asked if we wanted anything else as the kitchen was closing. Bottled wine was hellishly expensive. Restaurant itself is huge and noisy (even with small amount of tables and patrons) - hard surfaces everywhere - floors, ceiling, walls, no table clothes, timber chairs, huge amounts of glass. Again, odd.

    Top quality hotel in a tranquil setting. The free onsen (hot baths) are large and relaxing (no bathing wear is allowed, so there are separate facilities for men and women) The room was well equipped and comfortable, with free Internet (wired only) and English tv channels. The balcony is a plus and worth having a lake view if budget permits. The restaurants provide top quality if slightly expensive menus. There is a 7-11 in the nearby village.

    The hotel is somewhat isolated, although there are daytime buses and taxis available in the evening. Out of season, restaurants in the resort and nearby villages are only open for lunch, so you may be limited to the hotel in the evening. At certain times of year the resort is covered in cloud due to its altitude, so the view may be restricted. Curiously the hotel charges $5 for an ice bucket to be delivered to the room?

    Had to make a change to our booking as two guests flight was delayed, staff were very accomodating, and did not charge a cancellation fee. Lake Ashi is beautiful, the open air onsen geat, french restaurant breakfast and dinner were fab. Many people had warned the dinner was expensive, but we found the food amazing, and good value for money. Yes more expensive than your average meal at a Japanese family restaurant, but for a high quality meal, perfect.

    We asked for a non-smoking room, which it may have been but it smelt a little of stale smoke. Free shuttles from the hotel to the closest towns might be nice, as the hotel is sort of not near anything, and difficult to get around without a car.

    Rooms are large and clean. Spa was excellent and well managed.Location was good if you drive as access by buses was difficult.

    Location a little inaccessible.
