When traveling in Europe, hostels are a proven choice of accommodation for travelers on a limited budget. Not only do dormitory-style rooms allow you to travel cheaper, but in general hostels are also located in strategic areas of the city, they have staff who can give you tips on discovering the local environment or connect with other travelers from the surrounding area. We have selected the three hostels that captured us most this spring.
Japan is a country with a very long history, dating back to the seventh century BC. The culture of this beautiful country is an ideal combination of innovation and tradition, so it is no wonder that there is also the world's oldest hotel - according to the Guinness Book of Records - Hoshi Ryokan in the Awazu Onsen area of ??Komatsu. Thousands of years of accommodation have been run by the same family for 46 generations. Get to know each other.
The hotel was opened in 718. It was founded by Gary Hoshi, a disciple of Buddhist master Taichi Daishi. It is said that the teacher was visited by the god Hakusan, who showed that the village of Awazu, located at the foot of the mountain, is surrounded by many kinds of lagoons whose waters have medicinal properties. Daishi ordered Hoshima to build a hot-spring bath, and since then the family has run the hotel.
The Hoshi family is proud to have managed the hotel for 46 generations, and each of them managed to maintain the hotel's face while improving something. The aim has always been to maintain a harmonious balance with nature, with particular emphasis on water and the season.
The hotel has four buildings and each building is decorated with characteristic features of spring, summer, autumn or winter.
Rooms have original floors, Japanese bedding, large windows overlooking beautiful vegetation, and a bathroom with bathtub. Genuine green tea is always available in each room. There is also a garden covered with moss with fine old trees and flowers. In addition, it changes colors. It offers a different view in each season. Guests from the hotel are always happy and happy to return.
When we choose even cheap accommodation in Bratislava in Slovakia, we always consider the included services.
Even this hotel does not have to be ashamed of them. Guests can book massages, enjoy a sauna, sing karaoke, or even attend a typical tea ceremony. Breakfast and traditional dinners (light snacks) are served in the dining room. There is also a ceramic gallery and a Japanese-style tavern. Price per night varies according to room equipment from 100 euros (cheapest) to 1100 euros per room (Enmeikaku).
Ryokan has a special wing called Enmeikaku. Located in the heart of the garden, this VIP lounge is actually a small Goten palace-style house built from elite carpenters from Cyprus. It is a very special place that hosts members of the imperial family of Japan as well as personalities of industry and culture.
