  • Shoes in the cupboard and tour. The elegance of each room is spectacular. Beautiful old hallway was well polished, very good. But room overlooking courtyard is exceptional. Visitors follow a route through and tea room at the end, you can break with tea and sweets.

Where to stay in Atami

The fairly modestly sized urban area of Atami boasts a number of places to stay, which is fitting for this holiday resort town. The most built-up area around the harbor has lots of modern hotels and more established guesthouses. Many focus on comfort and luxury, with traditional onsens at most of the places. Shoestring travelers will find some budget-friendly options without spa facilities--you can always pop into one of the accommodations with an onsen if the mood strikes.
