My second time to this hotel. The service quality of the staff here are excellent! The kaiseki dinner was particularly good, in terms of freshness and tastes, it still beats all the other ryokans I have stayed at both in previous trips as well as this time.

Booked this hotel in order to take the Ice Breaking ship. A pleasant and relaxing stay with a touch of luxury compared to other onsen resorts. Both the outdoor and indoor onsens are located on the ground floor. Personally, I prefer ground floor onsens as it has a more nature feel. The place was not crowded though it was full... More

From some of the pictures posted, those rooms seemed to be ones with private hot tubs. Tour we joined asked for a surcharge of $350 for 1 night which we passed since our stay was for about 8hrs. The "regular" room we stayed on 3rd floor is a bit tired. With shower water going in and out of being hot... More

Very nice room and great view. Spacious and clean. Public bath is just so-so. Strange about that the bar is not open until 9pm. No where to get a drink before dinner. Nice hotel and will stay there if I visit Abashiri again.

Picked this hotel because it looked quite new on Tripadvisor and it turned out to be a great choice. The room we picked is one of the more expensive ones and it was really worth the extra dollar. The entire 2/F is the home to large rooms with private outdoor onsen. The room was spacious, stylish yet simple. Loved the... More

We had a room with private open bath with a view of the greenery. Western beds for us and a tatami bed for our 16 yo daughter. The room is very well equipped with a modern pantry which comes with a coffee machine. Also a Bose CD player and a massage chair. Good quality toiletries and robes and yukata too.... More

When you first arrive you will be greeted by a bell boy that picks up your luggage. You are then invited into the waiting area where you will be given apple vinegar. While the desk clerks review your bookings. We were then told our room has been upgraded! and it was such a surprise because it was super spacious! The... More

The unusual and stylish design of the inside of the hotel was apparent right from the check-in sitting in the lounge area. Staff were very friendly and helpful and welcomed me by name before I told them who I was (solo mid-week westerner arrival is not too hard to spot perhaps, but still a nice touch). I had booked a...

This was the last hotel we stayed thru the week long trip covered all three NPs (2 nights at Sounkyo, Akan and Shiretoto each, and the last night at Abashiri Lake) covered east Hokkaido. It is the newest and most modern facility focusing on every bit of detail. We thought we were tired of the 7 days non-stop breakfast and... More

We stayed from July 24 to 26 and our expectation was high because of the room rate we paid for one of the best rooms of the hotel (one with open-air hot spring bath) and the attractive pics and reviews I have read. Staff were friendly and service was overall good. Décor was great with homey feelings as you can... More
