We stayed two nights in this hotel, which falls in the japanese ペンション (“penshon ») category (room will not be cleaned during the stay). We had a tatami room, family of six with six futons. Three 貸し切り温泉 (kashikiri onsen) enables to enjoy the onsen privately ; and the dining was family type, with cuisine made by a cook who cooks quite well!! Breakfast, hot french croissants made in the hotel are served - REAL good butter crispy croissants (and other « pains au chocolats » etc). Five minutes walk from Kusatsu Center. Convenient, clean, family oriented, managed by a japanese couple - busy work. Great stay.
