What kind of onsen hotel is Hana Beppu?
Hana Beppu wouldn’t be luxury, but very cozy. This is a Japanese-style modern boutique hotel with hot springs in Beppu city. If this is your first time staying at ryokans, you should stay at Hana Beppu. On the other hand, if you are looking for authentic onsen ryokans, this is not. Perhaps, if you are looking for rooms with private hot springs, this is not. There is no room with private hot springs. There is a private family one, though. Once we entered the property, sincere and wonderful hospitality greeted us. Staff are very courteous, helpful, and friendly. We did appreciate their excellent service. You can absolutely experience signature Japanese hospitality with a personal touch. The ambiance is tranquil, relaxed, and cozy. The property would be great for couples, families, solo travelers, or small groups. If you are a couple or solo traveler, you may want to stay on weekdays. There would be many families with children on the weekend.
Is the location easy to access?
Yes, it would be easy from Beppu Station. It takes 6min on foot. A free shuttle service is not available.
Rooms I would recommend?
If you are going to stay here, I would recommend deluxe or luxury rooms with jacuzzi. They tend to be spacious, comfortable, and user-friendly. If you don’t want to sleep on Japanese-style mattresses in tatami rooms, you should avoid Japanese-style rooms. Overall, facilities tend to be a bit worn-out, but the housekeeping was good.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?
All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, a coffee machine, sweets, and tea bags. There are some pillows and colorful yukatas that you can choose at an additional charge, JPY700. Room service is not available. Complimentary coffee and steamed wagashi are available between 15:00-17:00, 20:00-22:00. There is a convenience store nearby. Then free wifi reception was good in the property. Also, this is child-friendly. Staff provides yukatas, meals, baby baths, etc. if you request in advance.
How about In-house Facilities?
There are indoor and outdoor communal hot springs. The spring quality is wonderful, soft, and moist. Also, there is a nice sauna for women. There is no sauna for men, though. All of them are open from 5:00-10:00, 15:00-25:00. *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing area. Also, there is a private family hot spring. It costs JPY2,200 for 50min. If you bring small children or people with weak feet, you should use it. You need to book it in advance. Then Hana Beppu is almost universal design. If you bring people with week feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift. Wheelchairs are available for borrowing. Then there is a spa treatment shop, a souvenir shop, and vending machines for drinks.
How about meals?
Kaiseki food for dinner and breakfast tends to be sophisticated. All local ingredients are so fresh, but the portion tends to be small. All meals are served in a dining area. If you have dinner on the property, you need to check-in by 19:00. *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies. Alternatively, you can go out for meals as there are many restaurants around Beppu Station.
Overall, the property was nothing but pleasurable. This hotel wouldn’t be a venue for special occasions, but if you want to relax in Beppu City, it’s well worth a visit. At last, the property would be popular all year round. If you want to chill out here in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, weekend of Oct and Nov, and the end of the year and New Year holiday. Have a nice trip! Welcome to receive any questions about Hana Beppu from the below space. *Staff can hold your bags before check-in and after check-out. **
