As suggested in the name of this hotel, 潮騒の宿 晴海, it's just next to the seaside, although a little bit far from the sight seeing spot and the hot-spring street. The room is very mordern Japanese interior design, spacious and decent with individual onsen and the sunrise view. It's just stunning and comfortable too. We do have a good sleep... More

We have stayed at this hotel for 1 night during our trip. The room is very spacious and decent with individual onsen. The resting room is facing the Beppu sea and we enjoyed breakfast in the balcony. The frontdesk could speak fluent English and introduced us to the hotel facilities. Apart from enjoying the onsen inside the room, we have... More

This is by far the best ryokan we've ever stayed, which also means $$$$$. Our room was Luxury Suite with Open-Air Bath and Tatami Area, with sea view. It was very comfortable and got all the amenities we needed. Breakfast was average, really amazing service though. There are two public open bath onsen and indoor onsen, both with sea view.... More

Above all, I like the attitude of the staff here. I reserved this hotel about 6 months ago. They called me several times to make sure what kind of services I needed. My mother has a little trouble in walking and sitting on the floor. But there was no problem for her thanks to their services. The seafood dinner was... More

What an experience. Overlooking the bay we enjoyed one night here. We booked it because of the previous recommendations and were not disappointed at all. The team was truly professional and very helpful in introducing us to the Onsen do's and dont's as well as showing us the hotel. The food was terrific. This was rather art than a dinner... More

This was an indulgence that was worth every yen. From reception to the room and amenities. This has it all. Great beds, hot bath on one balcony and chairs with a soothing sea view on the other. Sipping sake while the sun slowly sets. A place to relax for some quiet private time.

As a frequent traveller, I really cannot find anything to complain about this hotel except they can improve on the in-room wifi. The 'L' room that we booked has a stunning Beppu bay view, plenty of space plus an in room private onsen and it's worth the money spent. Room was clean and tidy with all the amenities you need....

These are the things we loved the most about this hotel 1. Dining in Banya. It was a fusion of Japanse and Western dishes. Sushi was heavenly! I didn't get that heavy uncomfortable feeling even after eating a lot! Oishii! 2. Onsen inside our room. We had a view of the sea while soaking into the onsen! We could feel... More
