Where to stay in Oita

The accommodations of Oita proper lie between the main train station and the harbor. Congregating around the primary commercial districts, a number of high-rise hotels, some luxury and some standard, cater primarily to visiting businesspeople. Most visitors will instead choose to stay at the nearby resort towns of Beppu (a very touristy option along the coast to the west) and Yufuin (a more stylish and refined version, inland to the west) to enjoy the hot spring spa hotels.
