1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The hotel was much worse thane expected. There are only shared bathrooms with only one shower for the whole building, no hot water in bathrooms or rooms, and thin walls where you can hear all your neighbors. There's not much around the area either.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We had high hopes for Manten. Unfortunately, these hopes were not warranted. The room we were put in was the only one on property without a sitting area (every room was open during the morning, so you can see what other accommodations looked like). We had to move furniture to put down our futons and then make the beds. Our tables were not moved back during the day, so we would come home to tea on the upturned table (on top of another, for space) next to our unmade futons. I believe there was service for dinner and breakfast, but was never able to confirm or order either, as we didn’t see anyone to ask until our final morning there. The cleaning staff we did run into were very friendly. The onsen on property and off were nice. For the price, however, I would not go back.

The property has 2 indoor onsens and 2 outdoor onsens. The outdoor ones are accessed by walking down the street. The meals are at a set time and very Japanese. The food was very good. The rooms are like what life would have been like in Japan in the past. They do have aircon, fridges and a small TV. Don't be expecting hotel standards. It's more like a step up from camping. We liked it, but would not like to stay more than one night. There is no sign in English out side the property. Using Google translate for the sign out side it is called stairs to the stars?

The facility smelled a bit musty and could stand updating. However, price and location were right, and it was a rare occasion to have meals served to us in our room, as at traditional ryokan. The supper was an exceptional value. Our room was vintage traditional Japanese. Bathrooms were modern and clean although not attached to room. Although there were some miscommunications which caused a rocky check-in, staff provided excellent service during our stay. Futons were indeed thin, but we had enough to use two apiece.

Great Service and Staff is friendly. Property is much older than it appears. Main lobby area and washing facilities smell like mold and are not ventilated. Got sick after visiting.

The room’s tea pot and cups still had tea in them from a previous guest. The ceiling of the onsen was covered in mould. As other reviews mention, the walls are paper thin. Generally had an unpleasant, restless stay.
