“Very good hotel, but a little bit over price”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

I booked a room with private outdoor onsen.

Pros:
- next to the beach
- very friendly and polite staffs
- very clean room
- free parking

Cons:
- buffet dinner and breakfast, but I personally prefer more Japanese style food.
- no beach view
- need to check-out at 10am

Room Tip: Choose normal room instead of rooms with privite onsen, seems over priced.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel.
The hotel is a japanese style Ryokan, with tatami floor and futon.
Everyday staff is coming to make and remove your bed.
The room was really big, with multiple doors! During the night there was no noise at all.
You have a fridge (but full with their products), tea, sweets,tv, aircon.
There is no internet in the room you have to go downstairs to access wifi.
In the hotel you have shops, restaurants, bars, karaoke and a very big onsen.
The onsen has 2 floors you have bath inside and outside.
The staff is always very helpful, but they don't really speak english.
The hotel is just near to the shirahama beach and also a big supermarket open all the time.
There is a shuttle to go to the train station but the shuttle is quite rare so you have to take the bus. But if you want to go early in the morning there are not so many busses.
What was a bit not so nice is, this is a big resort full of people, sometimes the onsen is full.

So if you like onsen, beach and don't mind to be in a impersonal hotel, Musashi is for you!

I stayed there for one night in shirohama. The hotel staff is friendly and helpeful, and the girl serving us can speak manderin. Many resturants locate nearby, can consider just stay there for onsen and eat outside, you will have many choices !

Reviewed 21 February 2012

The bus from the train station stopped directly in front of the hotel. For a non-Japanese speaking tourist, I had some 'fun' talking to the Japanese officers at the Train Station. Fortunately, I got onto the correct bus and the bus-driver understood where to stop when I said "Musashi".

Nice hotel ambience, the room was just huge! We had futon beds and the windows looked out to the little quaint town below and beyond. Could not get a sea-view room, but this town view was quite nice. The public onsen was good, but the outdoor onsen was simply a bath with no roof, not much of a scenery surrounded by concrete walls and the indoor baths. Still, the water is very, very good.

Food is served buffet style in the restaurant - great variety, just too many people! For those who like the bustling family hotel and restaurant - this is a good choice.

Location wise - very near to the famous Shirahama beach. From the hotel, you can take a bus to many tourist attractions in Shirahama including Senjojiki, Sendanbaki and Adventure World.
