The Oldest Hotel in the World

As we have documented in our blog series about the history of the hotel industry, the idea surrounding a hotel and offering a room for the night in exchange for payment has been around for a very buy ambien online overnight long time. In fact, some the world’s oldest hotels that are the most recognisable today are located in Japan and have been around for over 1,000 years! That’s a business managing to stay afloat for a millennium! In this blog, the team here at The Mitre are going to go over some of the facts surrounding the oldest hotel in the world…

Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan, Japan

This hotel is cited by the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest hotel that still operates in the world. It is a traditional Japanese Inn that opened a very long time ago in 705 and has subsequently been owned by 52 generation of the same family. If you was to compare it’s opening to a significant historical event, this hotel opened around 1,083 years before the American Constitution was signed and dated. Visitors here are able to take part in many exciting activities, including soaking in the hot spring baths!

Whilst we can confirm with our readers that The Mitre has not been around for over 1,000 years, the surroundings that neighbour our little hotel have been around for many years and frequently have the habit of drawing tourists and visitors from all over Britain.
