“Don't miss the outdoor hot spring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Stayed one night. Toilet extraordinarily small. Gives u a taste of how Japanese made good use of space. Hotel situated on a hill. Not convenient by means of public transportation.
Hot spring not large-scaled; don't miss the outdoor pool where you can view the coast below and you can bathe under the stars.
Lobby has commanding view of bay area.
A garden close-by (10 minutes walk uphill) planted several hundreds of cherry blossom trees. Spectacular!

Hotel Green Hill, Shirahama is a large spa resort. It is located a 10 minute taxi ride away from the central beach area. The rooms are large with spectacular views over the Kii Channel & Pacific ocean. Staff are friendly & helpful but there is very little English spoken here. Hotel complex is old & tired, badly needs a refurbishment. Not much to do here unless you are into Spa or Golf. To Far away to walk anywhere. Tariff includes breakfast & dinner. A choice of French or Japanese dinner is offered and for breakfast both western & japanese food is included on buffet. Japanese dinner is excellent and breakfast is good.

We only planned to stay one night but when we saw the room and view we decided to make it two nights! The largest hotel room we had in Japan, even larger than most rooms in Europe or America, and very reasonably priced. The room had a great view over Shirahama town/beach, and was well equipped and clean. The hotel is not near the beach or town centre, it's set on a hill behind, but if you have a car it's no problem. We asked about meals in the hotel and understood it was a Japanese set menu served only between 17.30 and 18.30 so we ate out. We later found they had another restaurant which looked European and quite fancy but didn't seem to be open during our stay. The onsen, with indoor facility and outdoor tub overlooking the town/beach was good. There were mosquitos around at the time we stayed so it was necessary to keep the windows closed.

We stayed in a Western style room. The room is need of a renovation. The bathroom is very outdated the furniture & curtains are old but the room is very large and clean. Room actually is larger than any Japanese hotel I've stayed in. The lobby & hallways seem newly renovated. Breakfast buffet japanese style was included. The hotel also has a Japanese style spa. It is an overall good price for the hotel. There is a shuttle that picks you up from Shinyuzaki -from the shirahama station you will have to take the Meiko bus. The view is very nice as you are at the highest point overlooking Shirarahama beach and many of the other hotels. This hotel makes up for its location by having free shuttles take you to places such as Adventure Land. Cavet is that if you plan to go out at night you will have to hire a taxi. Overall reasonable price for hotel around the area.

  • Liked — Nice View and Hotel shuttle. good price
  • Disliked — Rooms need renovation
