Business Hotel Sanyo Sasebo

ビジネス山陽旅館

I had great difficulty booking a room in Sasebo because I was wanting one for three days, and the middle day was a Saturday. Friday night and Sunday night were OK but there must have been something going on because everywhere was full on the Saturday.

After exhausting possibilities on Rakuten I went to Sasebo's own tourist website where they had a list of smaller ryokan and minshuku that didn't have a presence on the larger hotel booking websites.

Business Ryokan Sanyo came through and I was able to book the full three nights in the location I wanted just a few minutes walk from the main station. The price was excellent too. 3,500 yen for one person for one night, but by mentioning that I got their phone number from the Sasebo Tourist Website I got a 300 yen per night reduction.

It's an older establishment that has seen better days, but the room was much larger than a modern business hotel as was the bed. There were a couple of arm chairs and a coffee table so it was easy to relax.

There was a TV but no phone or fridge or kettle, but each afternoon the vacuum flask jug was filled with boiling water on a tray with some green tea & Japanese sweets.

There is no internet access, but the nearby tourist information office at the station has free wifi running 24 hours a day, so I was able to use that when needed. The ensuite bathroom has a Japanese style bath, so its knees up to chest, no stretching out. For anyone on a budget, the low price more than makes up for the lack of facilities.
