The hotel is not near to the JR station; if you walk it takes a good 15 minutes. No fuss from us since we like to take a look at our surrounding. Very near to shopping street with a few departmental stores along the way. There is free car park as mention by some reviewers as well as free ramen every night from 9.30 onwards. The breakfast spread was awesome and it was by far the best that I had in my 14 days in Hokkaido. I stayed in the hotel for 5 nights and I had a queen size bed room but as with all hotels in Japan, it was a tad small but no complaints.
The hotel is clean and cosy and the onsen is good but not great if you had been to others in Noboribetsu or Toya.
Now for the minus; the housekeeping was inconsistent. We had to place a "Make up room" on the door before we leave every morning. On the first day, the bed was made, towels were changed and cups were washed. Spick and span. On the second day, the bed was somewhat made, the towels were left in a pile on the bed? and the cups were left in the sink?! I went to the reception and requested for clean towels which they obliged happily and then I asked about the cups. Actually I wanted to know why the room was not "clean" but I gave up as the staff had trouble understanding me and I did not want to appear "confrontational". So I left and went back up. The front office came up shortly after with the clean washed cups. I couldn't fault him as he really tried his best; I could tell and I was somewhat less annoyed. On the 3rd day, housekeeping was good but on the 4th day, the cups were again left in the sink? I couldn't understand what it meant. Was I suppose to wash the cups? I have no problem doing it but I was just curious why so. Anyway, I still recommend this hotel as I think they are value for money and a number of others such as car park, service, breakfast are commendable. Overall a good hotel to stay.
