We stayed here for one night. The location is great, right next to Lake Akan, but that was about the only good thing here. The staff does not speak any English, but very friendly as all Japanese people that we have encountered. The room sure could use a new coat of paint and the bathroom should be demolished and then...

unusually big rooms for Japan. This hotel is in need of a makeover, but it is a nice location directly on the lake and easy for hike on lake Akan and to the village. The hokkaido milk pudding as a welcome was a nice touch. while there are a couple of nicer hotels on Lake Akan, this was value for... More

Japan is not known to have big and spacious hotel rooms like US. Our expectations wasn't high as we intend to stay for just a few nights. Upon check in, the size of the room was way bigger than my expectation, we had two queen size beds and a tatami area in the room, the windows were big and we... More

Spacious and comfortable room. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice view of the lake if your room is facing the lake. It is located next to a park and during evenings, you can catch sight of deer grazing.

We have a great time to really experience snow falling for the first time when we woke up in the morning. It was a beautiful sight to behold especially behind the hotel, beside the Lake Akan. Powdered snow on the ground, squirrel running around. The hotel was near to the shopping street near to Ainu Village which was located on... More

In this hotel are only Japanese people (I think). They understand a little bit of English. Rooms are OK, and the breakfast is full Japanese. No other items. The inner onsen is big and very clean. The outside onsen is rather small.

This is one of those classic, old Japanese style hotels, slightly out of date, but with excellent food and great service. The room we stayed in was quite big, with a Japanese tatami sitting area and two twin beds. The dinner and breakfast that were included in the package we bought were excellent, really tasty and well presented, very classy.... More

I paid about JPY 10,000 for a night at this hotel, which is pretty cheap when compared to what other hotels in town we're charging for a last minute booking. The hotel has seen better days, but I really enjoyed my stay. Positives: Very friendly staff; good onsen; nice traditional Japanese rooms with a view. Negatives (which are mitigated by... More

Yes, the hotel looks old from the outside. But I found the interior clean and neat, and I thought the value was good for what I paid (about $50SGD/person/night). We had the lake view family traditional style room with a view of the lake and the bat landing area. The one thing I greatly appreciated about this hotel is the... More
