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.
