We stayed one night in a western style deluxe twin. Arrival and check-in went smoothly. Our corner room had excellent views from the sixth floor of the Nagarawara River. A view of Gifu Castle is also visible. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable, with Japanese Yukatas for sleeping provided, free of charge, as is Wi-Fi. We enjoyed the main bar and the breakfast buffet (included) with both western and traditional food offered. The lobby has a large shop for souvenirs. Staff were very cordial and check-out was flawless.

Room Tip: Upper Floor-6th, front side

History: Originally built and opened in 1964
Location: North side of Nagara River, on the backside of Kinkazan. Approximately 5km from Gifu train station. Still a good location for Kinkazan and Gifu Park.
Interior Decor: Outdated furniture, not classic enough to be called "antiques".
Exterior Apperance: 12 story building with annex buildings attached on both west and east sides. Showing the age.
Outside view from the room I stayed at (1126): Excellent view of Nagara River,Kinkazan and Gifu Castle.
Room Size: Twin beds - approximately, 29 square meters. Adequate amount of space.
Room Cleanness: Clean.
Bathroom: Showing the age. Average size.
Noise Insulation: Noisy. Traffic from the road comes in frequently.
Price and Value: A bit overpriced.
Bed: Good size. Firm softness. Slept fine.
Others: Breakfast buffet on the 2nd floor (west annex wing building) was better than average selections. Onsen (hot springs) was OK (plenty of space for indoor, small outdoor space).
Services: Professionally trained friendly hotel staffs.

This hotel is huge. The interior of this hotel and rooms felt and looked slightly older than Gifu Miyako Hotel (see my review on this hotel) and much more Japanese feel than western feel hotel. However, comfort wise I much prefer this hotel as it felt more cosy. A huge bonus is that they have hot spring bath house in the hotel.
There are three main baths at the bath house for the ladies. The open air bath contains natural iron. The hot spring water is originally colorless when it wells up from the underground source, but it turns gradually to russet brown once exposed to the air because of its high iron content. These hot springs are considered to be beneficial for neuralgia, arthralgia, fatigue, and other ailments.

I would choose to host seminar or events in this hotel over Gifu Miyako because of the smart use of space and deco and the meeting/ballrooms have just the right feel. They even have a church in the extended part of the hotel to cater for church wedding. I had a proper inspection and tour of the hotel and I like it very much. On one floor of the hotel is a row of rooms with traditional Japanese themed rooms, in which we had a very sumptuous herbal dinner.

We stayed here overnight. The hotel was big but the room is average. We stayedin twin room. It's facing nagaragawa river so you can swim there if you want during summer. We had french dinner and it was not that good compared to other hotel. If you want to watch ukai, better have a reservation with the hotel.it's 1000 yen higher than if you reserve with the boat company goinh to the boat company will take you 20 mins by walk or 1000 yen by taxi so it more convenient if you reserve in hotel.
