The room was tiny. We went as a family vacation with a 1 year old. Very hard to maneuver around. The restaurant downstairs we paid 5,000 yen for 1 plate that was just meat. It was terrible tasting. The bed was very hard. The veiw was gorgeous and the staff were friendly. The pool was closed. We left 1 day... More

Check-in was fast and staff at check-in very friendly, most of them speak some English and try very hard to communicate in English. Hotel is a bit dated, it is located high on a hilltop overlooking the sea and several small islands. Beautiful gardens and a large pool. According to hubby the men's onsen was very nice, also had an... More

We really enjoyed our 4 day stay at the hotel. The view from our room was wonderful and the hotel was quiet and comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. The 2 restaurants were rather expensive but we treated ourselves to a Japanese meal and it was very good indeed . The hotel doesn't have a bar (you can get... More

West of Shimoda city center are a string of resort hotels on top of the cliff. Shimoda Tokyu is the first one you come to, so is easiest to walk to/from town. There is a shuttle bus to/from train station if you don't have a car. Staff is very friendly and quick to respond. Pillows were small, so I asked... More

I must admit, when we arrived at the hotel it wasnt what i expected it to be, however after a few nights i realised what a great location it was! There is a courtesy bus that drives to and from the hotel to Shimoda station. There are busses that can take you places at the station, my boyfriend and i... More

Very cozy hotel to stay & view from balcony is beautiful. There is a nice size of pool. There is a path right next to the pool to Nabetahama Beach behind the hotel which is a small & quiet beach. If you wanna simply relax yourself, that would be the one for you. The hotel has 2 diff types of... More

A long weekend from Tokyo took me and my girlfriend to Shimoda and Tokyu hotel. We were met with welcoming smiles from the start and when the first room did not fit our taste we were immediately changed to another one with better fit. The person taking us to our room were very friendly (and spoke good english), recommending and... More

As others have said it is a little dated but still in good condition. The views are what make this place special, beautiful. Other hotels in shimoda have very different views and that also makes this one very nice. The beaches around the hotel are not good especially compared to others in the area. The location is quite far from... More

Although the hotel is little dated/rundown in spots, it is generally very well kept, and the location and views are to die for. We had no idea that "the tropics" were withing a 3 1/2-4 hour drive from Tokyo. The service and breakfast were excellent, and we would go again without giving it a thought. We were there at the...
