Heartfelt hospitality”

I have used various hotels in Arima because it is close by. I have also used the sister hotel, Hanamusubi, but this is my first time at Kotori. The price is a little cheaper than Hanamusubi, maybe because it was a plan without a bathroom. The room was small and cozy, and the toilet was conveniently close, just like at home. I didn't mind at all. They offer coffee and tea as welcome drinks 24 hours a day, and there are two private baths where you can enjoy the hot springs at your leisure. The famous gold bath of Arima is only available in the main building, which is about a 3-minute walk away. The food was especially wonderful, with a sense of artistry in the presentation. The main focus was on vegetables, but they also served black wagyu beef and sashimi, among other things. It was a feast for the eyes, and the portion size was satisfying. I had breakfast at Kotori, not in the main building. Arima is known for being luxurious and expensive, but this place offers good value for money and service and food that are on par with other hotels. I would like to use this hotel in the future.

Comfy Stay”

The Arima Hot spring Ryokan Kotori was a comfortable and warm stay. The room was clean and prepared in a timely manner. The food prepared for dinner and breakfast were outstanding and filling.

Excellent boutique spa with great food and hospitality ”

Perfect for travelers who prefer peace and quiet to the larger onsen resorts. What I like most about this onsen was it had only 8 rooms. Perfect for the quiet and peaceful getaway without the buzz of too many visitors. Evening Kaiseki dinner was beautifully arranged at the sister hotel, while the morning breakfast was equally appealing at the Kotori. Arima has 2 types of Onsens - the gold and silver. It does not have the strong sulphur smell that some of the onsens in Japan might have. Kotori had only the silver pool, but all guests had access to the gold onsen at their sister hotel (just 1 min walk away). For guests who prefer use of their own private onsen, it can be easily arranged at 45-mins block for a minimal fee. The quirky part was each room only had a wash area and no attached toilet, but access to clean and luxurious rooms were just steps away on each floor. Many thumbs up for the Kotori and will be back. One of the best onsens I've stayed in Japan.
