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

We were attracted to this hotel mainly because of its location. Right on the cliff, with endless ocean view in every room, what more can you ask for? We booked the tatami rooms, clean, spacious and fun, not outdated as mentioned in some of the reviews. Our rooms were on opposing sides, each with a different breathtaking ocean view. I... More

This hotel is not a good fit for most western travelers or for those expecting modern amenities. Pros: Fantastic view, hot spring baths. Cons: - Rooms are dimly lit and decor is quite dated. The futon is not conducive to a good night sleep. Sleep is further disturbed by the elevators beeping at every stop. The bathroom is very tiny... More

We came to the Hotel New Akao as part of a tour group. The hotel has both pluses and minuses which I will list below. This hotel will not please those who expect modern amenities. The rooms are dimly lit. The bathrooms are not conducive to taking regular showers or baths. The decoration is dated---probably back to the 1970s or... More
