This was my first visit to Beppu, found this Ryokan in Tripadvisor. It ranks number 1 so must give it a try. It turned out that it worth every star given, We stayed in the Type P room which is situated on the top floor of the Hare-no-to wing. The room is huge and offers a walk-in closet, open air... More

Beppu is one of the most popular onsen destination in Kyushu and there were many onsen ryokans to choose from. We picked this hotel because of its view and the modern style rooms. Check in was smooth. The staff that check us in spoke very good English. We stayed at a type I room which offered breathtaking views of the... More

Forgot to do a review on this one. This is one of the great hotel that we stayed in. The room that we stayed in has a private onsen and a ocean view. Very spacious. Food is great too for supper and breakfast. I would say this is pretty comparable to "The Inn Above Tide" in Sausalito near San Francisco.

The hotel from the outside is not exactly inspiring to look at must say but once onside everything faces the sea, and what a wonderful view. Check in was smooth with a welcome drink and towel, most welcome on a hot muggy day. Ladies get to choose their own yukata (plenty to choose from) with help from the staff if... More

If you're looking for luxury in Beppu, this is the place to go. The rooms have an attached private onsen, so you can enjoy an romantic soak with your love one. The restaurant was one of the best meals I've ever had. No complaints about the Seikai. Beppu on the other hand was an underwhelming experience, so unfortunately I won't... More

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

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
