There are quite many good onsen hotels in Toba area, and many things to do too. Altia is on top of a hill overlooking a beautiful bay area. It is more a western style hotel, with most rooms have beds instead of tatami.
When I arrived at the hotel by car, a member of he staff was already standing at the front door, helping guests with their luggage. The hotel has a long and narrow layout, so that almost all guests rooms have sea view.
My room had a twin bed and a raised Japanese living room area, and a balcony. The room is not very big but spacious enough. Room temperature is controllable, other amenities include kettle, humidifier, etc. The swimming pool opens only during summer months. Onsen is modern style.
There are one western style restaurant and one Japanese restaurant. We had a western style dinner. Portion is relatively small, but taste good. Yukata is not allowed in the western restaurant. There is a 24 hours vending machine offering hot fast food such as fried noodle, fried chicken, etc. The breakfast was buffet style, with good choice of both Japanese and western style food. View from the restaurant was magnificent in good weather.
Check out time is a generous 12 o'clock noon. A rare case in Japan.More
