We have been here for 4D3N. As we're driving I selected this hotel which does not necessarily close to the train station. It is around 3 minutes drive from the Atami town center and is situated on a cliff right next to the sea front and the highway. As it is way above the sea side highway there was no disturbance from the vehicles. Our room was on the 4th floor and has a nice sea view. The breeze from the sea was so comforting there was no need for air conditioning at the time of our stay. The hotel was in the way we like: only local guests with traditional style of warm and welcoming atmosphere.
There are 2 indoor hot springs for male and female (separated) and one outdoor hot spring for men and women using in 2 different time slot. Room was in Japanese style, which was, without a bed but using tatami. We have no problem with this style but in fact deliberately select this type to taste the traditional Japanese style. People who concerns not having bath at room should be aware that all bathing activities are in the hot spring area.
The breakfasts were great. The theme was always with self bbq fish but the other dishes varies everyday, we never got bored with it.
Staffs were helpful and attentive despite the language barrier we had. Only thing to complain is that the partition of rooms were not 100% sound proof so if the hotel was crowded there could be noise from next doors.
