Yokohama, Japan

My family stayed here for one night. The hotel has a lovely view of the water and the common areas are nice. They provided a free shuttle to the sand bath. I did not visit the onsen at the hotel. The room was fine (with only three electoral outlets total). There were two hard twin beds, and the tatami room...

When you enter the lobby from the road, you are faced with the most breathtaking view of the ocean, about 100 feet below. Rooms are great, large and clean, with half the room occupied by japane style low table, the rest with western style double bed. Staff is friendly, and nearly does too much to please - sometimes you feel...

Thank you so much for your stay and review. Some restaurants are place around station and along the Route 226. You need to use car or taxi. If you will be not able to use them, you should better reserve half board plan. We have sea view rooms and city view rooms. If you reserve “Standard Room with Tatami Area”...

- The seaside view of my top floor room was excellent. - The Location is OK, it's about 15-20 mins drive from the famous sand bath and 5 mins walk from a huge supermarket. - The onsen is a bit small; I think the temperature of the outdoor onsen is a bit cool even in Oct. They lack of an...

Thank you so much for your stay and review. We glad you to spent lovely days in IBUSUKI and our hotel. Sand bath is very popular in IBUSUKI.

The hotel is starting to show it's age, but it seems most hotels in the Ibusuki area are a bit worse for wear, so it is probably on par with the competition. We booked a plan where the view wasn't specified, and ended up with a view of the parking lot, so when booking you may want to make sure...

Rooms are ok in size (for Japanese standards) and we had a room with seaview, which was amazing. The English of the staff was limited... but boy did they try to help you.
