But on the 3rd day at the hotel, they didn't clean the room. It seems that it was because we did not put a CLEAN-The-Room sign on the doorknob outside. Usually rooms should be cleaned. But they have a quite unique system that guests should put those signs out there. Maybe those signs are for the cleaning staff?

Very nice hotel. Location is a little out of the way, about a 1700 yen taxi ride up the hill from Beppu train station, where there are many restaurants, onsens, and activity. There was no food available at the hotel the night we arrived. Short walk to a convenience store where we picked up bentos. They provide a shuttle service to Beppu station leaving at 9, 10, and 11, and a shuttle service from Beppu station at 1, 3, and 5pm. Onsen at hotel was very good.

The only reason I gave to marks with a score was for lack of a great AC, but then again this is Japan. They all have them but it is almost forbidden to turn them on anywhere you go. Other than that it was a wonderful place easy to find and close to lots of cool stuff in Beppu.

Our kids loved this hotel. This is a massive complex full of arcades, a bowling alley and shops. The restaurants did not look too thrilling though. There is a rooftop onsen and the aqua garden with heated pools in which the visitors wear swimming costumes. In the evening a fanastic light and water show is shown on the poolside. On the downside, you are generally expected to wear yukata and open toe slippers which are too small and uncomfortable for European feet. The hotel is not centrally located but everything is sprawled out in Beppu in any case. The corridors and rooms could do with a little refurbishment, but the rooms were clean. There is a regular shuttle bus from the hotel to the station (there is a carpark on the mountain side of the station on the right side of the exit - the bus stops in the carpark itself, not at the busstop). This is a better option than taking a taxi, especially if you have lots of luggage (in Beppu we had the unfortunate experience of being conveyed by one of the rudest taxi drivers Japan has to offer). You really need to speak Japanese to get round but one of the porters is French, speaks also good English and is very helpful.
