150211Mr.-M.jpgThank you for an enjoyable time staying at Hotel Shirakabaso. Alasdair and myself had a fantastic time, and loved the Ryokan experience. You have amazing staff that were very helpful and friendly, and made it a pleasure to talk to and be around. Please pass our many thanks onto your staff for the beautiful and delicious meals we were provided with, and friendly service throughout our time there. I cannot fault your hotel. Our room was perfect to our needs and the location was great for us to go snowboarding. The experience was much more enjoyable with the lack of tourists around for us to explore. Thank you for everything and will recommend your hotel to friends and family. I look forward to my next visit. All the very best wishes for the future. ありがとう

The staff were very nice and welcoming.

We were given a (free) ride to the monkey park and snow boots to use. The staff were very nice and welcoming. Our room had tea and an electric heated blanket.. definitely the coziest room we had during our trip.

A wonderful ryokan experience.

Throughout our 2 week Japanese adventure, my sister nagged and nagged me to book a night in a Japanese Ryokan. I was hesitant, as I had researched a few places with paper thin walls and communal bathing ( clearly not my style Ya' know). Whilst in Osaka, we decided we would do it, so the night before I booked a room for 3. The hotel was a little difficult to navigate to, only because we walked from our other hotel, and obviously can't navigate that well - being females and all ;) When we arrived, the loveliest man greeted us and welcomed us with a big smile. His English was amazing, and he assisted us with our bags. We were quite early, a few hours before check in, but he arranged to have our bags taken to our room. When we went up to our rooms, I was pleasantly surprised! The room was awesome- great views, smelt clean, sizeable living/sleeping area with a traditional Japanese table and tea set, as well as a nice sized bathroom. Our bags were waiting, and we were told to let the staff know when we were ready for bed ( so they could come and make our beds up). We us our showers after a humid day in Osaka, then went out for dinner. Just behind us was the river, and alongside it were lanterns and heaps of restaurants! When we got back, our beds were made and we just jumped in! I could not have any bad comment about this place! Once again, the hotel host was so lovely, he kept us up to date about the approaching Typhoon and helped us with directions. If I ever travel back to Osaka ( I definitely will!!) I will be coming back here, for a longer stay! Thank you!

Extremely friendly hosts.

Stayed here one night and ordered the breakfast/dinner package.. well worth it. The hosts were extremely helpful in providing us with a layout of the city as well as to make us feel perfectly at ease in the Ryokan.There is one main room for eating/sleeping as well as a side room which acts as a sun room overlooking the river, perfect for having a quiet read.
The dinner was.. an experience. I don't think I have ever eaten as much as I did that night.. unless it was the next morning having breakfast. Definitely worth the visit if you can.

We wished we had stayed longer.

My friend and I had a great time! Very welcoming, we had a blast! We strongly recommend you to get rid of your "shame" and bathe in the several Onsen (Hot Springs) baths that are at your disposal! We wished we had stayed longer.

A great retreat to relax at after a crazy day in the city.

Very beautiful hostel - if you're looking for a really social situation I'm not sure this is it, but this was my favorite place I stayed during my trip to Japan. Authentic -- Tatami mat rooms, soji screens, sliding windows that overlook gardens... a great retreat to relax at after a crazy day in the city. Would go back again & recommend to anyone.

Comfortable beds and great yukatas.

Delightful ryokan in a very peaceful area. 10 minutes easy walk to Hongo-sanchome station. Loved the breakfast (order day before). Comfortable beds, great yukatas. Highlight was the ladies' basement bath- spacious and lovely decor.

Highly recommend!

What a wonderful place to stay. Despite other comments in regards to decor it is very easy to look past this when staying in such a fantastic location. As other posts have alluded to the staff are amazing - the cleaning staff are excellent, clean the rooms everyday and make your bed. The staff at the front desk are extremely helpful providing information about trains and even provided a gift to apologise about the size of our room (which was very spacious). If you come to Osaka and want to stay in the excellent location of Dontonbori this is the place!! Close proximity to everything you need. Wifi speeds within the ryokan are awesome!
