4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Good base for nachisan with frequent ferries, excellent accommodation, and a good onsen. Easily accessible though we were stopped by initially suspicious police keenly interested in what two westerners were doing in town (related to the cove?). Good, cheap food options in town. Dinner price seemed a bit much by comparison.

We have spent 3 nights in the hotel in HB. There is an excellent Onsen with a stunning view. From katsura there is a frequent bus that brings to Nachi where you can visit several temples or you can visit the tuna market early in the morning. We have been gently upgraded as extremely gently was all the personnel. Only... More

Chose this over Hotel Urashima as the onsen outdoor bath looks more impressive than the multiple baths (one in a cave) at Urashima. And it looks so terrific to have a island all to yourself or to the hotel, but unfortunately due to rain, i didn't get a chance to jog and explore the island outdoors. Great dinner and i... More

Spent one night here after Hotel Urashima.- quiet compared with Hotel Urashima. Nice friendly staff. Onsens were good - both indoor and outdoor. Japanese dinner was OK - a bit too much fish for my liking! Buffet breakfast - good selection. Overall, good experience.

Visit Wakayama Prefecture in early December with my wife and enroute spend a night in this hotel. A small boat (can carry around 30 persons) takes us to the hotel which is built by a small island. Parking is provided before we take the boat and the trip is just a two minutes ride. Staffs are friendly and check-in is... More

The hotel is located on a small island in the Kii-Katsuura bay: there is a (free) ferry that leads from the Kii-Katsuura harbour to the hotel, about every 15-20 minutes (depending on the time of the day), and it's a 5-minute trip. Architecturally speaking the hotel is not quite a success but its main attraction is the beautiful outside onsen,... More

We chose this hotel mainly for its well-known outdoor onsen facing the sea. It is located in an island which is about 10-minute ferry ride from Kii-Katsuura. We arrived without making a reservation and were glad to have a room available as there were many guests. The hotel is quite old but very well maintained. The rooms were clean and... More

I guess this has lot to do with the price I paid, 21000yen half board for 2 is rather good value,consider the quality of the amenities and services. The train ride to Katsuura was very scenic, wish I had stayed a few more days along the way, town like Kushimoto looks stunning, Kii Katsuura was also a revelation,it is a... More

I pick this hotel because of its location. Although the hotel is a little bit old , but I had a nice room with a beautifull view to the bay with Kumano mountains as a backdrop. There is also a view point from that can be access from the hotel roof. The food is delicious and the onsens have a... More

Spent just the one night at this hotel/ryokan. The hotel has 141 rooms and is located on a small island in the commercial harbour, about a three minute ferry ride. The hotel is designed to wrap around the point of the island, which is fine in theory but means you have to walk a marathon down long hallways to get... More
