JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Oita

What kind of onsen hotel is JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Oita?

This is an amazing business hotel with hot springs in Oita.  If you are looking for wonderful outdoor hot springs with nice views in Oita, I would recommend it.  On top of that, the property has great cost performance.  Overall, it tends to be sophisticated, such as modern interior, furniture, decorations, staff, hospitality, and ambiance, etc.  The property would be great for couples, solo travelers, business persons, or groups.

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, it would be easy.  It is directly connected to the Funai Chuo Exit *North Exit of Oita Station, so take the Funai Chuo Exit and find Amu Plaza Oita which can be found on your right, and then take an elevator to go to a front desk.  The hotel’s reception is on 8F of Amu Plaza Oita. Then if you need to park your car, you may want to make sure in advance where the parking lot is located.  Refer to the info.  It wouldn’t be easy to find the parking if this is your first visit.  It costs JPY1,000 per day.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend corner rooms on a high floor possible.  You can see a peaceful Oita City and Beppu Bay while chilling out at the rooms.  Then most of the rooms including bathrooms tend to be cramped so you should book a spacious room as much as possible.  The housekeeping was excellent.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or  Agoda

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including minimum toiletries, yukatas, samue outfits, and tea bags, etc.  Also, there are some pillows which you can choose.  The free WiFi reception was good in the property.  Room service is not available.  There are laundromats.  There are vending machines for drinks.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff provides baby cots, bed guards, and slippers for small children if you request in advance.  There was no amenity for children, though.

How about In-house Facilities?

Facilities tend to be the latest.  There are nice indoor and outdoor communal hot springs on the rooftop floor with views of Oita City.  If you are a hot spring freak, you should try them some times as the views change depending on the time and weather.  The spring quality is also nice, creamy, moist, and thick.  All of them are open from 6:00-9:30, 11:00-24:00. On top of that, there are some kinds of saunas.  If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing area.   Also, there is no room with private hot springs.  Then there is a large rooftop garden near the front desk on 8F.  Don’t forget to take a walk around there.  Then JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Oita is a universal design.  There is room for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or  Agoda

How about meals?

The buffet-style Japanese cuisine for breakfast was wonderful.  There was always more than enough food each day.  Breakfast is from 7:00-10:00.  Alternatively, you can go out for meals.  There are many local restaurants for lunch or dinner around here.

My impressions

All staff is warm, welcoming, and gracious.  They are the loveliest group.  If you want to expect signature Japanese hospitality, you should stay here.  Overall the hotel would be one of the best in Oita.  If this is your first visit Oita, JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Oita would be one of the best.  At last, the hotel is very popular all year round.  If you want to chill out 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.  Then don’t forget to check a weather forecast before booking a room if you want to see nice city views.  That’s the most important.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Oita from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or  Agoda
