We came here in late September with rather high expectations given the reviews of TA, and boy, we were not disappointed. Just about the only downside is that this hotel/ryokan is not located in the vicinity of the JR station, but the bus/taxi ride is a only a small inconvenience. The plus points include: - Great room; we had room... More

Definitely rank 1 in Beppu. Luxury room with private onset and balcony. The onsen is gorgeous with beautiful seaview. There is KFC in the opposite road and teppanyaki within 3 mins walking distance. We decide to have dinner at Benya restaurant which is a good decision. The staff is attentive and speak good english. The food is good with reasonable... More

The hotel is located near to Beppudaiguku station, one stop away from Beppu station. A ticket costs 210yen. You can take a taxi from Beppudaiguku station, 640yen flat rate (within 1.5km) for a 5 mins ride, or 15 mins walk to the hotel which is just opposite a KFC. We book a twin room that comes with private onsen overlooking... More

Stayed in the hotel for one night in April 2016. The room was huge and luxurious with a big balcony with excellent sea view where you can watch the sunrise. There is one small hotspring inside the room facing the sea but we went to both the public hotspring on the top of the hotel and also the one on... More

This ryokan is much beyond my expectation. It is new, stylish, with a stunning view. My friend and I chose to stay at the ryokan for its remarkable onsens instead of going to see Beppu's renowned 'Hells', and it was worth it! Seikai is a newly refurbished ryokan-style hotel, located by the Beppu sea. It is approx 10 mins from... More

Me and my wife lived there on 15/4/2016. Spacious room with wonderful scene of the beppu sea. The in-room ourdoor hotspring was great, where you can enjoy the starry sky or the sunrise in the sea with your family privately. The great kumamoto earthquake happened that night at around 1am, where everything was shaking in the room. The TV set... More

From the exterior, the hotel didn't look that great. But the check-in was done in a very personalized manner with the ladies being able to choose their own yukatas (a light and comfortable Japanese "kimono") from a cloak room filled with so many choices! The room was beautifully appointed with an ensuite onsen bath tub with constant flowing water. This... More

We are impressed with the hotel facilities especially the private outdoor onsen in our room, facing the sea. You can enjoy sea view onsen at any times during your stay.
