Stayed in a room with private onsen and sauna. Kaiseki meals were good and standards above many high end onsen hotel. Servers were enthusiastic and warm. Frequented by locals. Allowed us to check in fifteen minutes earlier. One drawback was check out at 10 am hence we extended another two hours for about 7000yen. Another drawback was the condensation in...

I will forever remember this particular hotel for the thoughtful gesture. Another highlight of the UBL its onsen or Japanese spa bath. Located on 1st (G floor outside Japan) a section of it is almost too hot to handle! Bathe farther from the hot spring source for more manageable temperatures. Indoor onsen only, it is located next to the hotel...

My family stayed in the UBL Hotel for two nights in late November and early December. The hotel situates in north of the Kumamoto city centre and requires about 20 minutes of driving to the Kumamoto castle. When I drove to this hotel, I did not see any clear road sign leading to its entrance. Nevertheless the building itself was...

The Onsen is nice and not crowded. For foreigners, it is an excellent experience, going down with the traditional dress and have big onsen facilities. Food is OK but basic with the set meal of a tour group.

The rooms have a small tatami area with a larger area for Western style beds. The bathroom was a bit cramped and dated, and the raised floor with linoleum surface made it feel like...

I was last at this hotel 2 years ago when it was the Kikunan Onsen Hotel. Then they had an outdoor swimming pool with water slide. That has been replaced by a spa. This is besides the fact that the hotel has its own onsen. I stayed 5 nights in a Western-style room, and 1 night in a Japanese-style room....

Not very well-located, as it is some distance from the heart of town. Big supermarket nearby, and nice Japanese restaurant. Many rooms appear to be occupied by families with young children; although I had a room at the far end of the corridor, it was still pretty noisy. the room door was not effective in blocking out noise. The morning...
