They have normal Japanese style rooms on lower floor, which the amenities and toilet facilities are not very good. I would recommend the top floor Japanese style rooms with in room onsen (hot spring). It has a private wooden tub at the balcony of the room, overlooking the beautiful Shirahama Beach. And the room facilities, decorations, amenities are upgraded quite... More

Upon entry to the hotel, the carpet had water stains that have accumulated over the years. Overall the condition of the lobby was not grand, like laforet, if that is what you are after. Going to the room, the hall had wallpaper that was peeling and the air was very hot (no A/C on). Inside, the room was fine with... More

It was my first time trying Japanese style hotel and it was very nice experience, i enjoyed my staying there, the stuff are super friendly and they make an effort to speak english, the room was comfortable and cool and i had a beach view which was just awesome. I will come back to this hotel in the future.

Absolutely loved this hotel. It is right opposite a beautiful beach with restaurants within walking distance. If you arrive outside of the free hotel shuttle bus, get the Meiko Bus from bay 2 to Hashiriyu bus stop. It is stop number S-16 and costs ¥400. It virtually stops right outside the hotel. Be prepared for a steep climb up the... More

The hotel is situated some distance away from the main train station. It is best to reach the hotel by car. The hotel provide more than enough carpark spaces for a small charge.
