I'd stayed there because it was the only hotel with an indoor swimming pool and with nice views from the harbour. Unfortunately I realize once I had arrived that not only the hotel needs a good renovation, but also it's website.
Staff is really helpful though almost anybody speaks English.
Rooms are clean, but not public areas. It was really disappointing.

The Kurofune Hotel is a large hotel with impressive facilities, but sorely in need of an upgrade. Staff are wonderful and try hard to make up for the fact that this hotel has seen much better days and is now struggling to bring in the crowds. A nice tourist class hot spring hotel.

We wanted a private on-sen and was a bit disappointed on the first day since the water did not look clean. I guess they cleaned up after the room was last used but since it was an outdoor on-sen, small flies and dust/dirt got into the water when the room was unused. We stayed for two nights and obviously they cleaned it up after our first night's stay so the water was much cleaner on the second day.

For the price they are charging, I would not call it good value since good quality is quite average though in large quantity. While the grilled live abalone was a nice surprise, the lobster did not taste fresh at all. This is not a typical traditional on-sen hotel and perhaps too "tourist type" for my liking. But since we booked the hotel for the view, we could not be complaining about this.

Stayed here with family to experience a traditional Japanese experience. The ocean view rooms were really spacious and included a private bath on the deck. The course meals (dinner & breakfast) were very traditional and worth the experience. Some of the best meals we had during our two week stay. The hotel itself was a bit dated; a bit of an 80's vibe going on here, but the Japanese style rooms with tatami (straw) mats contributed to a tranquil stay.

Ever go urban exploring and find an abandoned hotel? Upon doing so, do you run away in fear of monsters and pathogens or take a step inside and try to imagine what the place was like in full glory?

The kurofune hotel allows you to explore the compelling purgatory between abandonment and old.

It is glorious. The arcade? From 1989. The telephones? From 1989. The photos and information in the hotel guide (they offer next-day film processing!)? 1989.

It is a living connection with the ruin of Japanese bubble excess and for that reason it is simply wonderful.

Internet? Hahaha! How about a 1989 fax machine?
The staff are great.

In terms of value for money, compared to a modern business hotel or hell, even a holiday inn, kurofune loses. In terms of character, though, I find the kurofune as second to none.
