Amazing traditional ryokan, if you want to experience a traditional ryokan, then Miyajima is the place to be for its magic atmosphere. Iwaso is situated in a very nice area surrounded by a wood where deers are walking free. Hotel is excellent, you can use onsen both indoor and outdoor, dinner is served in your room following th tradition. Kaori is a wonderful attendant. You are given traditional yukata to walk by night through the island. Free shuttle bus to and from the ferry terminal.
We were asked to pay for the drinks at dinner, while we thought "half board" already included them. As they were not that cheap, it would be better to specify during the confirmation. Neither the Japanese, nor the Western style breakfast are so tasty.
I loved this ryokan. I totally recommend, although a little bit pricey, it is totally worthy ! in my trip to Japan, I had the chance to stay in different ryokans with different prices, and this one by far was the best and not the most expensive. The food was superb !! Dinner is served in your room and the service was outstanding ! Breakfast was served in the restaurant and the Japanese breakfast was incredible ! The onsen, or common bath was outstanding...super clean, beautifully finished ! it had everything you could possibly need... If you go to Miyajima, you have to stay here...you won't regret it
Professional service, excellent food (Japanese style). Comfortable and spacious rooms. Kind and helpful staff. At the time of leaving, I left my bag at the hotel to go for a walk in town. Later, on a simple phone call, they delivered the bag free of charge to the ferry terminal, so I did not have to return to the hotel to pick it up.
Transport was provided, the onsen was clean and the place was really peaceful. The room faces the beautiful park and we really enjoyed it. the night view of the itsukushima shrine made the stay - though expensive, really worth the money.
Loved our hostess. The room (the entire campus, really) was so peaceful and tranquil - it was so lovely to sit and truly relax. The onsen was nice and hot, overlooking a beautiful landscape.
I like Iwaso because it is near the sea and mountains. The hotel staff are very nice.
The check in time is too late - 3pm. The check out time is too early - 10am. The on-sen is not fantastic. The food can be better. The wifi only at Level 1.
The location and setting in Miyajima is perfect - access to the town and access to the beautiful mountain with all the temples.
It's the best Ryokan we ever went! Great onsen, inside and outside. Superb food. Super+ it was warm which is quite unusual in winter in ryokans.
as always in real ryokan, you sleep on the floor.
I was deciding between Iwaso and another ryokan on the island but the half board option made me go with Iwaso. It was worth it--dinner was a five-course affair, beautifully served and very delicious. I'd been living in Japan for three months and I hadn't tried food like that. Breakfast was less grand but I appreciated the convenience of having two meals provided, especially since the island dies at night. The onsen was relaxing of course and the location was great--the ryokan is just behind Itsukushima Shrine and close to the ropeway to Mt. Misen.
There was a 150 yen "onsen tax" included in my bill. Mere pennies after paying for a night at Iwaso, but still.
