One night stay as part of our tour of Japan. Ryokan style room was an interesting experience. The view was spectacular overlooking the ocean. We were able to leave the window open all night with the wonderful sound of the ocean. The Japanese bath was well stocked with towels, soap and shampoo. The restaurant was huge, but extremely dated.

The Hotel New Akao was one of the four hotels that were chosen as part of our 10-day tour package of Japan. We were warmly met by hotel employees with umbrellas! as we were escorted (in the rain) to the nice spacious lobby. Our tour group were given refreshments and snacks while our luggage was being taken to our rooms.... More

部屋付き、浴衣タオル付き、13:09-17:00の日帰り入浴が3200円。ランチ営業しているレストランもあるし土産物屋のビールも良心価格。穴場だと思います。JPY3200 per person, day use Onsen with all amenities including Yukata. And you can nap in Japanese ryokan style room. Of course, Tatami room!

Most of the reviews are accurate: the hotel is dated and needs a lot of maintenance and repairs. In an attempt to provide a fair review for those interested in visiting Atami, here goes: Pro's: scenery is spectacular. From our room we had a great view of the ocean. We stayed in the higher-end section of the hotel called the... More

First thing its not ”new” they probably named it in the 70s. Once you get over the initial shock of the décor, we are talking plastic roses trellis tunnels and Romanesque curtains from a 80s porno movie. I actually really liked the place gives you a good feels of what the average Japanese folks do for a weekend away. Turning... More

This facility is really about being by the ocean. Our room faced onto the ocean and the waves lulled us into a deep slumber. The view is spectacular. The onsen was outstanding, especially the rotemboro (the bath outside). Therapeutic, relaxing and rejuvenating. The japanese style room was comfortable. Nice to sleep on tatami with futons and buckwheat pillows. Too bad... More

I attended a conference here. The facilities and service were outstanding. Excellent food, both western and Japanese. Rooms were satisfactory but not overwhelming, and each had a spectacular ocean view. The public baths (onsen) were a real treat. The grounds were extensive and picturesque, but the outlying grounds were not particularly well maintained. One minor defect is that internet access... More

I have read some reviews prior to my stay at this property so I am aware of this place being old and not updated . But What I did not like is that I don't think they were enforcing the non smoking room policy very well. We had 2 nonsmoking rooms both have ashtrays on the table and in my... More

Ryokan type of hotel where you do sleep on the floor. I found the futons a bit stiffer than others I have stayed at. Room was quite large with a refrigerator. Separate toilet and tub. The shower was actually in the tub and there is just a drain in the middle of the room without a shower curtain. Quite interesting.... More
