I stayed three nights in a suite on the thirteenth floor. Reception desk is located on the second floor. The elevator always stops on the second floor. For an extra $10.00 USD upgrade it was well worth having the additional room space. I declined the daily breakfast for $10.00 USD. The view of the bay is spectacular. The hotel is... More

I stayed here as I was visiting APU. The location can't be beaten, literally 10 seconds from train and bus station, and taxi rank. When I first entered the room I was a little taken back, the decor was dated and it was a smoking room which I am not accustomed to. You also have to leave your key with... More

I stayed at this hotel for my third and forth days visiting Kyushu, The hotel's location is just prefect, one mins walk from the Beppu JR station. The room is rather small but you have everything you needs. Only complaint was the bed sheets are very rough and scratchy. Staffs there are very nice and speaks some English, no problem... More

We have just returned from out stay in Beppu. The Sea Wave Hotel's price was 7,500 yen per twin share non-smoking. I had booked about 5 months in iadvance so no problem with getting the non-smoking rooms. Room size was quite good for Japanese standards. We had a view looking out to the sea and from our 12th floor room... More

This was another stay filled with Japanese idiosyncracies. Although the rooms were surprisingly large for Japan, you could not make a phonecall - not even a local one - from your room. You can call using the free interenet, of course - but it did strike me as odd. Staff spoke very little English and there was a strict schedule... More

Hotel Seawave Beppu is conveniently located directly opposite the JR Beppu Station and the bus station. It makes it very convenient for taking the bus to various tourist spots in Beppu eg. Jigoku, Beppu Ropeway etc. The rooms are small, like any typical Japanese business hotel. The staff do not speak much English, but are very helpful and polite and... More

This is definitely a typical no-frills budget hotel. The rooms are small and dated, and the room had a slight odor. There was a knob in the bathroom, linked to a hose, for the water to go to either the sink or the shower. But the staff were friendly, even though we didn't speak Japanese. It is directly across the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in December 2008. The price was fine at 7500 Y per nite for a twin room (I preboooked using Rakuten). Unfortunately for me, all I could get was a smoking room. I had really hoped to change it to non smoking when I got there, but I could not. Realized once I was there only... More

Hotel has a great location for those who want to travel around Beppu, its across the street from the JR Beppu station. The disadvantage is that the hotel doesn't have its own hot spring, but there are at least 2 hot springs nearby so one can always go there. The hotel is built in a maritime style. The staff is...
