Bousui is pretty good for a relaxing night's stay. It is a big place but operates like a ryokan. The rooms are Japanese style and everything is clean. You will eat dinner and breakfast in the room. The staff will set your futons after dinner and put them away before breakfast. Food was nice.
The public baths are just OK, kind of disappointing considering how nice the rest of the hotel is. They could do much better. No sauna. Each room is allowed to book a private bath once. These are quite nice. We were able to book twice since it was not busy. Two was the maximum we were told. The two we booked had sauna in them. You can also walk down the street to go in the sea-side sauna, it was very hot.
Space to relax is nice. Lobby was great with huge windows to view the ocean.
Lobby had a coffee and tea space, but the service was not so reliable.
Check-in and out were smooth.
Good for a one-night stay on your way up or down Izu.

Very relaxing with natural hot springs. In room service of traditional Japanese styles breakfast and dinner. The person spoke okay English to explain what individual dishes were. Private/Public rooms with outdoor hot Springs with nice views. Unfortunately, the private rooms are on 4th floor separated from where you stay. You need to book in advance with one hour limit. Of course, if you are lucky enough, you can book another time. We got offer three times. Since we were there late in the evening, we booked one before dinner and one after breakfast. There are also in-room hot springs without view. However, the room itself has excellent views. Just beautiful. Need little clarification with train ride and shuttle pick up. You need to ride from Izu-Kogen stop to Izu-Atagawa stop; then, call the hotel for free shuttle pick up at Izu-Atagawa only.

Room tip: Nice sunset or sunrise views with ocean; privacy and very traditional Japanese styles

My partner and I had a wonderful time at Bousui. The hotel is located by the sea with a wonderful view on the surrounding cliffs. On arrival, we booked a private onsen for 50 minutes and we then enjoyed the public baths. The dinner was an incredible experience as well as the breakfast. The room and bedding were very comfortable. Overall, we had a very relaxed stay and it was the perfect way to discover the traditional Japanese way of life. We would have appreciated the staff to be more fluent in English in order to ease the conversation. Also, there were little explanation on the onsen etiquette and the food menu were not translated in English which was a shame considering the great quality of food.

We were being so well look after. The view from the hotel lobby is stunning and the hotel room is a mix of Japanese + modern style. Bose CD player is supplied with very relaxing music. I will highly recommend to include the meal in your package and they will have a dedicated staff to bring in the food into your room and set it up for you.

Room tip: A luxury Japanese Onsen Hotel experience

I can say many great things about this hotel. The views from the lobby, through giant windows and out over the ocean, are beautiful. The train ride down from Tokyo, along the coast, was lovely. The Japanese-style rooms are a great experience, and we slept like logs on the futons with super-comfortable bedding and the sound of the waves coming through the window. The breakfast was delicious and incredibly elaborate. Service was super-attentive, with so many people taking care of room set up and meal service. You can get picked up at the train station by the hotel van. All of the staff were friendly, helpful, and polite. The private bath suites (each guest gets a free one-hour session) are gorgeous and very deluxe, and the public baths are also very nice - though be forewarned, swimsuits are not allowed!

On the negatives side - although our room faced the ocean, it was set back over some other roofs of the lower floors, and there was no balcony, so we did not really get much of an immersive "ocean view" experience from our room, as we had expected. And the biggest negative of all is that there is really no outdoor space at the hotel at all, other than the small outdoor baths (which are still behind a fence / under an overhang). The hotel is basically sandwiched between the road and the ocean. You will spend all of your time in your room, in the baths, or in the lobby. For me, I felt much more confined than I had expected/hoped If you want more of an outdoor Ryokkan/Onsen experience, with gardens and other outdoor space, you should go somewhere else.

One word for vegetarians - they cannot prepare a vegetarian dinner option, and the dinner is supposed to be a big part of the experience. We checked in advance and knew this so we brought some snacks for dinner and enjoyed the Western breakfast, which was mostly vegetarian.

Room tip: Ask for either a high floor or a room that is not set back from the ocean - better to avoid having a view directly out over a lower roof.
