We stayed in Osado for two nights in April 2016 and enjoy the food very much. Excellent seafood of crab, fish and shrimp at a reasonable price included with the hotel ratings. Though the staff did not speak very much English, they are very helpful and attentive. The onsen is good too for beautifying the skin with lots of calcium sulfate.

Room tip: ask for the sea view room

After a long day traveling from Tokyo, we finally arrived in Sado Island and in particular, Hotel Osado. I've also included some info of our journey to Sado at the bottom of this review.

We were warmly welcomed by the staff and were met at the driveway to help with luggage. This was a little different from our previous stay at a Japanese hotel (usually you are expected to bring up your own luggage). All the same, it was nice to be so warmly welcomed. The hotel is large and cavernous, as is the dining hall, restaurant and onsen.

The car park is free and there is WiFi only in the lobby. There is a great view of the surrounding area and the coast from the lobby.

The hotel staff speak some English, enough to get by, but not enough to hold a conversation. Most of the time, you can guess what they are saying; we managed to arrange dinner and breakfast.

Rooms are tatami-style with a small alcove near the window where a small sitting area, wardrobe and vanity table is situated. In the main room,there is a low four-seater table with tea-making utensils. While we were at dinner, our bedding was laid out for us.

I found sleeping on the floor on the thin mattress with only a hard pillow a little difficult to get used to. I woke up constantly throughout the night. Although we did ask for non-smoking rooms, we found that it didn't make a difference. Other guests may smoke in their rooms and secondhand smoke will drift into your room.

We were assigned to eat at their restaurant, although there is also a main dining hall. (Breakfast and dinner was included in the cost of the accommodation.) Our table was already laid out with a generous spread of Japanese dishes when we arrived. Dinner is Kaiseki-style where they bring your food out course by course. The food was mediocre but plentiful.

The Japanese buffet breakfast comprised of porridge, cold cuts, salted fish and vegetables, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, and some fruits. Breakfast ends at 9am and you are expected to be out of your room by 10am (so that the housekeepers may come in) even if you are staying another night.

The onsen is located on the 1st floor. It is large with a bathing area next to the hot springs. Take a nice hot shower before heading into the bath with your small white towel. Wear your Yukata to the onsen, and bring both your small white towel and bath towel.

Overall, we thought that the hotel was one of the better hotels in Sado, based on reviews and photos. We thought it was a nice experience. It's also a comfortable hotel to come back to after a day of sightseeing.

A quick word about our journey. We departed Tokyo station on the Shinkansen Max Toki bound for Niigata (about JY25,000 for 2 adults and 1 child) (check www.hyperdia.com for train departures) The journey takes just over 2 hours. At Niigata, either take a bus or the taxi to Sado Kisen ferry terminal. We chose to hop on the jet foil as it takes an hour to get to Sado island (JY19,000 return) (check www.mijintl.com for latest ferry schedules).

We rented a car from Nippon Rent-a-car and with the help of the GPS made our way west to Osado Hotel in just under an hour. You will need to key in the phone number of your destination into the GPS so have this handy. Some GPS have English audio instructions, but the key-in function will still be in Japanese.
