Shonai Hotel Suiden Terrasse / Yamagata Sakata・Tsuruoka 24


Shonai Hotel Suiden Terrasse, opened in September, 2018, is the first hotel to be designed by the world-renowned architect Shigeru Ban.
Ban's design was inspired by the beauty of paddy fields, and is a wooden structure that appears as though it's floating in a field.
There are views of the paddy fields of Shonai Plains and the revered mountains from throughout the hotel - from the guestrooms, sky deck, and the corridors.
It is a place where you can experience the unique topography of Shonai up-close.

The guestrooms have a simple beauty to them. The original design chairs and lamps made with cardboard tubes, and other furnishings create a simple yet special space.
There are double and twin rooms as well as suites.
From the windows guests can enjoy fantastic views, including those of paddy fields of Shonai Plains and the inner garden.
As it is surrounded by fields, away from city lights, you can see a starry sky at night.

At FARMER'S DINING IRODORI they serve dishes made with locally produced ingredients.
Guests can enjoy their buffet breakfast and lunch on the open terrace as they take in the view of Mt. Gassan.
At night, the restaurant becomes a gastropub where you can sample the local sake and wine.
The vegetables used in their salad are grown at their own farm without the use of chemicals, and are harvested each morning by the staff.

Spa & Fitness Suite
The water of the natural hot spring baths have a slightly viscous quality, and is the perfect way to relax after a long day and warm your body.
There is also a soothing aroma of wood from the wooden roof, a unique design feature by Ban. 
The Fitness Suite is equipped with machines by the Italian company TechnoGym, which are even used by athletes.

Read more ホテルの評価について、利用したお客様の口コミを確認してから宿泊しました。厳しい口コミもあった為、多少の不安も抱えつつ、昨年オープンした話題のホテルだったのでどんな感じかとショートプランの素泊まりで宿泊してみました。 いい点①フロント従業員と客室清掃する女性従業員の接客対応は良かった。レストランの男性従業員が親しみやすく、気さくに話しかけてくれたのが好感持てた。 ②建物、お部屋、ホテルから見える景色がステキだった。施設内はきれいに清掃されていた。 ③ライブアリには1000冊もの本があり、本はソファに座って読んだり、お部屋に持って行って読めるのがいいと思った。 ④ショップでは他では買えないお土産があったり、品揃えが充実していた。 ⑤館内設備・備品・アメニティが充実している。 ⑥大浴場は天然温泉でぬるめのお湯で、ゆっくり入浴できた。 悪い点①道の途中にホテルまでの案内看板がない為、マップを検索してから行かないとホテルまでたどり着けない。 鶴岡駅から徒歩だと少し遠い。 ②共用棟から箱型で3棟(宿泊棟・温泉棟)に分かれていた為、案内の地図見ながらでも初めて宿泊した私は迷路みたいで迷った。フロントで頂いた施設案内の地図が分かりづらかった。 ③デザイン重視なのか?、所々に段差があった。健常者の私でも段差に気づかず、何度かつまづいてしまった。入り口はバリアフリーみたいでしたが… ④レストランの食事メニューが少なすぎる。 ⑤レストランでデザートを食べた時、お冷は出てきたが、紙ナプキンやお手拭きが出てこない。テーブルに紙ナプキンが設置されているわけではなかったから。 ⑥お風呂は男性大浴場には露天風呂があり、女性大浴場には天窓を眺める内湯のみで露天風呂がない。 ⑦ホテルの通路ですれ違った男性従業員2人から挨拶がなく、疲れている様子を醸し出していた。掃除道具を運んでいたおじさんが広い通路を歩いていたにもかかわらず、完全に脇を向いていて歩いていて、私が座っていた端にあったソファに思いっきりぶつかり、かなり衝撃があった。その従業員は客に失礼なことをしたにも関わらず、あっさりとした謝り方をし、誠意が全く感じられなかった。仕事中はよそ見をせずに前を向いてしっかり仕事してほしい。従業員全体でお客様をおもてなしするという気持ちが欠けているように感じられた。

About hotel evaluation, we stayed after confirming customer reviews. Because there was a severe word of mouth, having some anxiety, it was a hot topic hotel opened last year, so I tried staying with a short plan without meals. Advantages ① Front desk employees and female employees cleaning rooms were good at dealing with customers. I was impressed that the male employee at the restaurant was friendly and spoke to me. (2) The view from the building, room and hotel was wonderful. The facility was cleanly cleaned. ③ There are 1000 books in the live ants, and I thought it would be nice to read them while sitting on the couch or taking them to the room. (4) There were souvenirs that could not be bought elsewhere, and the product lineup was substantial. ⑤ Facilities, equipment and amenity are enhanced. ⑥ The public bath was a natural hot spring and you could take a bath slowly with lukewarm water. Bad point ① Because there is no signboard to the hotel on the way, you can not get to the hotel unless you go after searching the map. A little far from Tsuruoka Station. (2) Because it was divided into 3 boxes (accommodation ridge / onsen ridge) in a box shape from the common building, I stayed for the first time while looking at the map of the guide and lost like a maze. It was hard to understand the map of the facility information I got at the front desk. ③ Is it important to design? , There were steps in some places. Even I was a healthy person, not knowing the level difference, and stumbled over and over again. The entrance seemed barrier-free ... ④ There are too few meal menus in the restaurant. ⑤ When I ate dessert at a restaurant, the cold came out, but there was no paper napkin or towel. There was no paper napkin on the table. ⑥There is an open-air bath in the men's public bath, and there is no open-air bath in the women's large bath with only the indoor bath overlooking the skylight. ⑦ There were no greetings from two male employees who passed each other in the aisle of the hotel. Even though the uncle who was carrying the cleaning tool was walking along the wide aisle, he was walking sideways completely, hitting the couch at the edge where I was sitting, and was shocked. Although the employee did something rude to the customer, he made a quick apology and felt no sincerity. I want you to look forward while working, and look forward to working firmly. I felt that there was a lack of hospitality among all employees.

Read more 暗くなって到着したので、灯りがとても素敵! 感動でした。 朝になってからは窓の外に水鳥が見え、癒されましたし、ライブラリーもゆっくり過ごせました。 今回は子供達と一緒でしたので、次回は自分自身のための時間にしたいとリピ希望です。 ただトリプルで追加のベッドのマットが硬くて よく眠れませんでした。 また、枕が2つとも高くて私には合いませんでした。1つは低くて柔らかいものにしていただきたいです。

As it arrived dark, the lights were very nice! I was impressed. In the morning, I saw a water bird outside the window and was healed, and I could spend my library slowly. I was with my kids this time, so next time I want to make time for myself. It was just triple and mat of additional bed was hard and could not sleep well. Also, the two pillows were too expensive for me. I want one to be low and soft.
