Where to stay in Hakone 2019/1/9 10:49
I intend to stay one night when visiting Hakone using the Hakone Free Pass in April 2019.

Can someone recommend the best place for an overnight stay which can possibly help to shorten the travel time to the various attractions in Hakone?

Also, any recommendation of a hotel or ryokan to stay in?

Thank you.

Hakone is a BIG region. Where to stay depends on your budget, what you want to do/see, how much time you have, etc.

For the convenience (shopping, eating, transportation) you may want to stay near Hakone Yumoto station.

For more relaxing and scenic accommodation you may want to stay by the lake (Lake Ashinoko).

I have stayed at both areas, and I would recommend near Hakone Yumoto if I am vacationing with my family; and near Moto Hakone (southeast shore of the lake) if I want a more romantic vacation.
