Stayed one night on August 21th. We booked top floor with sea view room which is a good decision. Comparing to Tsuruga wing in lake akan, Grand hotel, the Japanese style hot spring bath hotel is with its level. There is a lady handle our luggages and took to our room explain the equipment for us. 1. Good service for... More

Massive building at Utoro by the harbour - looks pretty standard fare - but v comfortable tatami room and hearty buffet for breakfast and dinner - and really really courteous staff! Came in August from hot Singapore to enjoy Shiretoko Nat. Park, and this hotel is well-situated as staging point. After a long day of walks, sightseeing and boat ride,... More

When I first drove into the hotel ground and view the hotel entrance, I felt my expectations plummet to the ground. I was expecting a grander entrance instead of the low-roofed entrance that wasn't even lighted up. We walked in to enquire if we could drop off our luggage before we head to Shiretoko Park and was astounded to find... More

I've stayed here twice, both times the staff was incredibly helpful and warm but wish the buffet food was a little more so! To be fair, many hotels in Japan, especially out of the cities, when they have buffets the food does tend to not be as hot but really a small complaint. I was very happy with my stay... More

One of the larger hotels in Utoro but the only that was located on the water. The hotel is quite large, with three wings. Only the top floors had been renovated to a more modern style, and the rest seemed to be typical Japanese style. Nothing fancy, and a bit dated. Anyway, the view out to the sea is quite... More

Visited Utoro during Winter, Feb 2015. Booked their Okhotsk Room with Terrace+Open Air bath+ Facing Ocean. Staffs are in generally helpful but you might need to be a little patient with them since not all of them are able to communicate in English as well. First floor of hotel consists of many facilities which includes Table tennis, Children playground, Ramen... More

Great location with excellent views pending your room location. Our room faced north with great view of shore. Others mentioned roof area facing west getting great sunset pictures. Excellent buffet with wide selection and very attentive staff. As with many onsen hotels, there are main and side buildings where side buildings sometimes have newer rooms. Just check with hotel prior... More

We had a great visit at Shiretoko Grand Hotel Kitakobushi. I particularly recommend eating any salmon on offer and enjoying the view from the onsen. The views are beautiful. The service was good and we had fun eating at the "viking" which is the Japanese word for buffet.

As we book via booking.com, we got a room in an older wing of the hotel. The room itself is very outdated, more like a hotel in the 80s, but they do try to keep it clean despite the burnt cigarette holes in the sofa. The rest of the hotel and facilities are all 5 stars, but they need to... More
