Large room with nice view offset by very spotted carpeting. Stayed 3 nights and should have insisted on room with newer carpet, which we saw the morning we left. Lunch expensive and mediocre but with view of sea. Location about 1.5 miles from town, train station. That said, one morning when we didn't allow enough time for a taxi to... More

The lobby is large and bright but dated as are the rooms. We booked a suite for our stay and the room was massive(68sq/m) with an adjoining tatami room. Large windows that open make the room...

The few ryokans in Karatsu were full the busy Christmas weekend, and so was the largest hotel - the Karatsu Seaside, so I settled for the other big hotel, the Karatsu Royal Hotel, which is just across the road from the Karatsu Seaside. The hotel is large but clearly pretty old, with dated rooms that looked really tired. I booked... More
