Cons: Location is so hidden. Suitable for driving. No private bathroom.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very kind and welcoming and the baths divine, both the private and outdoor public ones. The ryokan itself is very beautiful and atmospheric. The spectacular Japanese breakfast more than made up for missing dinner.
Cons: It was more difficult to get to the ryokan than we had anticipated but that was because we had been told we could get a train there. So we were a bit stressed when we got there. Because of the language barrier we hadn't pre-ordered a meal and the village did not have a great selection of restaurants.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff was very supportive and some of them spoke English well. The breakfast was very good and the outdoor onsen was very special. The build and room had the very traditional old Japanese building style. We found at 10 min walk a e-bicycle rental near Hanaasobi Rose Garden.

9.6 Excellent

8.0 Excellent
Cons: Provide bath towels
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, if you want a base in Aso to see the local volcanic region this would be perfect. We stayed here while the rugby was on as there was nowhere to stay near Oita so we didn't get to see too much of the local area, but it looked beautiful. Incredible thunderstorm on the first night! Purple lightning!
Cons: For a room in a guest house it wasn't as cheap as you would imagine. Thin walls, despite a curfew we were kept up by the neighbouring room. Due to high volcanic activity you couldn't go to the crater. There were only two of us, so it was fine, but the booking said room for 4 and it was only 2.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: a rusric country with friendly atmosphere.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I felt comfortable at Guest House Asora. The hostess has contributed to this, giving me a lot of information about the region. One evening she cooked for me and other guests. Just like a friendly gesture. Also her very nice coworker gave me specific tips and took me to a family village festival. She also showed me the way to the remote restaurant, run by the owner of the guest house. Also good food there!

Cons: They should have a bit more information about how to travel around the local area. There are local buses but we had to look up the info on line so if they could have some timetables on hand that would be great for those that don't speak Japanese and aren't driving.

5.1 Okay
Pros: The Onsen (spa) was quite nice. It was very quiet.
Cons: We took this hotel because everything else was booked out. We didn't know that it is a golf hotel and that it is very far from the actual town Aso. The staff had no clue about activities outside the hotel and could hardly speak any English. This hotel is good if you are above 50, have a car and want to play golf. Otherwise it's too far away from town and has very poor connection to public transport.
6.7 Good
Cons: Beds were very uncomfortable and hard to sleep on.
6.7 Good
Pros: A lot of parking space. Onsen is good
Cons: The resort needs renovation. Usually hotels in Japan are spotless but here is an exceptional case. When you switch the light you can see the tracks of towel on the mirror. Toilet stinks. The receptionist is polite (in a city way) ,which is okay, just the contrast is big compared with all receptionists I met in Kirishima and Miyazaki.
6.0 Good
Pros: Hotel located in a park like golf club. Quiet natural setting.
Cons: Hotel's dinner was buffet style. A rather high price vs overall quality. Rather strange elementary school style plates. Famed beef was a bit too well done and disappointing really as compared to a previous restaurant. Arrived at hotel about 1:15p. Attempted to check in and drop off bags before sightseeing. Were directed to an area to wait for someone to inform when check in was ready. After 20 minutes in uncomfortable chairs, further inquiry informed need to wait for another 90 minutes until 3:00pm. It's the official time and no one is allowed to check in before that time.... Poor communications at it's best.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Love the onsen, especially the outdoor onsen, and the green surroundings (It has a golf course!)
Cons: A little away from everything so driving is necessary to get to shops, restaurants.
7.1 Good
Pros: The views is nice for photo taking.
Cons: The staff didn't give a correct information on the Onsen facilities and the timing of the opening. We need to find out ourselves.
6.3 Good
Pros: Very nice onsen Good breakfast with beautiful view Very nice staff Comfortable beds

9.2 Excellent
Cons: Hot spring is not clean. There are bugs inside.
7.1 Good
Pros: The dinner is really amazing. It worth the money.
Cons: The room is too small. Only one staff can communicate in English. The pajama for us going to the hot spring is really terrible. It is a blouse and trouser suit look like what a workman worn. Only one size is offered despite different size of customers. Even worse, only one suit is offered for each hotel customer. We are not allowed to replace a clean one with our dirty one on hand.
6.7 Good
Pros: The onsen is great, rooms are spacious, the breakfast buffet with panoramic view on the caldera is very nice. Also, the hotel is located quite close to the road up to the crater of the volcano.
Cons: The staff at the reception weren't as friendly as we are used to in Japan. In fact, they came across as a bit arrogant. Only the people working in the restaurant and cleaning were friendly and polite. Also, there was a distinct seventies vibe in the building. Not particularly homy. As I read later on Tripadvisor, one of the guests described it as 'slightly institutional'. Maybe that's the right description for this hotel.

The Ryokan Kono-Yu provides a great place for travelers to relax after a busy day. When guests have some time on their hands they can make use of the onsite facilities.

Pros: We booked a maisonette and enjoyed a relaxing and luxurious space with the big sleeping area atop and the indoor and outdoor baths on the ground level. There is also a massage chair and tv in the change area. The outdoor bath, Mori no Yu with a standing bath was unique. The meals were very nice and we had our first taste of horse sashimi. Sadly, it tasted good. The staff were very nice and warm and the owner’s son personally advised us on the outdoor Onsens to visit for Onsen Hopping. The recommendations were good and the free bus service information he wrote on the map helped a lot. Overall, we had a memorable time in Kurokawa.
Cons: Nil

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was a surprise for me that there are 6 private onsens for only the hotel guest, it was wonderful to have privacy. The public bath was huge and it was very nice. I like the lighting in the room cos it was warm white (more cozy) comparing to most of the traditional ryokans usually have bright white. The staffs are kind and helpful.
Cons: The courtesy of other tourists / guests , there were families with kids running around shouting and even the adults were loud in the public areas.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolutley wonderful experience operated by such a lovely and welcoming family. Amazing authentic Japanaese experience. Only 5 min walk from the centre of kurokawa. Room with a view and the outdoor bath is so peaceful. Be sure to book dinner at the hotel, the most authentic Japanese meal you can have. I will definitely stay here again.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Quiet ryokan without many guests, which makes it more relaxed. The staff were very helpful and explained everything for me, who hadn't stayed at a ryokan before. The free transportation to/from the bus stop was a nice extra.
Cons: Location is a bit far from the rest of the ryokans at Kurokawaonsen. If it weren't for the signs, I would have thought I was lost. If you wanted to roam the town in your yukata, probably not a good idea without proper shoes.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff has got high service-minded. Service is excellent. Definitely stay here again if I return to Kurokawa onsen.
Cons: Nothing
