27.May.2019 | SPOT

Travel booking service Rakuten Travel has unveiled the 2019 rankings for the top leisure hotel picks among female travellers! The ranking list displays hotels with combined leisure facilities that were ranked a 4.5/5 stars or more. This list is based on the most highly rated accommodation plans associated with they keyword search “single traveller” in Rakuten Travel’s keyword search.  

 

So which hotel comes in first place?

1st place: Dogo Onsen Old England Dogo Yamanote Hotel (exterior & guest room)

Dogo Onsen was also ranked first place last year in December as the top hot spring hotel for solo female travelers. The hotel’s theme is traditional Britain. The interior is filled with a very old-style British atmosphere which female travellers find particularly appealing! This place caters a lot for the needs of solo travellers.

 

This hotel is also situated in a hot spring hot spot (no pun intended). The main building for the Dogo hot springs and other sightseeing spots are within walking distance so even a single traveller can easily enjoy a stroll to and from these spots at their own pace.

 

From the carefully designed wallpaper to the comfy queen-size bed, these rooms are so relaxing.  If you want to check out later, you can change your breakfast plan to a lunch plan, giving you even more time to relax. Guests have stated that the entrance, lobby, hallways and guest rooms are mesmerizing. If you love antiques, this is the place for you!  Many commented that the extension phone located in front of the elevator was so beautiful that they couldn’t hold in their surprise!

In second place comes Hotel Nikko Alivila, Okinawa, which is just a 70-minute drive from Naha airport by car. This large white-walled resort is located in a village called Yomitan (Nakagami District, Okinawa).

3rd place: Setre Glover’s House Nagasaki (lounge & guest room)

The western style-style design of the area’s past still influences the hotel today, creating a very pleasant western private housing atmosphere. The lounge contains around 270 books that guests are welcome to read as they relax. There is an all-you-can-drink drinks bar which serves soft drinks and alcoholic beverages for free.

 

The single traveller plan aimed at female solo travellers even provides you with the space of a two-person room all to yourself! Organic shampoo and other luxurious amenities are also provided, making the hotel a popular pick for many!
