This hotel was our home base for our group ski trip to Furano. During the ski season with hotels running out of rooms early, we nabbed the last room at a pretty decent price, compared to the resorts in the area.

Simple to get to from the airport, the Hokkaido Resortliner Bus picked us up from the New Chitose Airport Terminal and dropped us off right in front of the hotel. For our friends coming from Sapporo after the Snow Festival, they were able to take the Chuo Bus from Sapporo Station right to the hotel as well.

No, the location is NOT right on the slopes, but it's not a bad walk up to the Kitanomine Lift. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle that will take you and your gear to any of the lifts, you just have to reserve it ahead of time. We actually just rented gear at the Prince Resorts shop at the bottom of the Kitanomine Lift, and left it there each night so all that week we just had to walk up in the morning, suit up and glide onto the chair lift or the gondola.

The rooms themselves were modest and dated. There was a funky smell in ours that we determined was coming from the heater, so we cracked the window and propped the door open to let it air out, and never really used the heater that week. Which was fine because we were always hustling with all our winter gear on and by the time we got to our room we would have liked it cold anyway, and the comforters were enough to keep us cozy at night. Only the mornings were a bit of a rough start. There were some questionable stains on the comforter when we first checked in though.

The bathroom, though small, had the essentials (shampoo, conditioner, body soap, face soap, toothbrushes, etc). The plumbing setup was funny because it had one faucet that connected to both the sink and the shower, so you had to pick one and make sure the knob was turned to that direction. There was an incident while I was taking a shower and my partner came in to wash hands in the sink and was turning the hot and cold knobs and not understanding why the water was coming out... let's just say I was NOT happy the the water temperature changes as a result. The toilet is a "shower toilet" or "washlet", which is great, but I really wish the seats were heated! (The toilets in the lobby DO have heated seats, just FYI).

Hotel Features:
Wifi - the hotel has free wifi in the rooms and password-protected wifi in the lobby area.

Food - The hotel has a restaurant, but we weren't thrilled by the breakfast selection and ended up getting conbini breakfast from 7-Eleven the whole week. We love 7-Eleven's ready-made food. However I do encourage you to try the hotel breakfast at least once, you might find more things you like. We were always out for dinner with the group so we never got to experience the hotel restaurant's dinner, though the photos looked really nice.

Communal Bath/Hot Spring - The hotel also has a communal bath on the bottom floor, free for guests. There are yukata (Japanese-style robes) that you can wear through the hotel to get to the bath. Please familiarize yourself with onsen/bath etiquette first before just jumping in!

Common Area - The best part of the hotel is the cozy firepit area in the lobby. Our group often met there for breakfasts and right before dinners. There are vending machines in that area, two of them just for beer! This was a great place to socialize and meet the other hotel guests.

Staff - The front desk staff was very pleasant, though the English was limited. They often helped us call taxis to different places, reserve the ski shuttle for pickup, and even helped us find a place to eat that could accommodate our big group.

Check-out - The check-out time seems a little too early at 10am. You can opt to stay later, for a fee. We just needed an extra hour and they charged us 1000 yen, or about $10 US.

All in all, great hotel for the price, and we look forward to staying there again when we return to Furano next season.

Our family stayed here for 2 nights and we are happy we did. :) The hotel is one of the best in Furano aside from New Furano Prince Hotel which was 5 mins away but the rate per night there is times 4 compared to Edel Warme. :) We brought our own car so we're glad that this hotel had its own parking. They also had a public bath (onsen) which was Free to use anytime. The only problem we had was because the hotel was already old, our room had that bad smell -- and when we complained about it the hotel just gave us a room spray. haha! But all in all, everything was good!

I visit Furano every year, and stayed at Edel Warme for the first time this season.

Room size is bigger than most other hotels, as always the bathroom is smallish, but the room itself is well appointed, good wardrobe, very comfortable beds, good heating system and wifi in room along with a nice breakfast and central location.

If you are skiing/snowboarding, it is about 5min walk up the hill to Kitanomine, so a little less convenient than Naturwald (for snow), slightly more convenient for walking around town (close to many good places to eat as well as 7-11, a little less of a walk down into Furano township), and the room itself is nicer than Naturwald so probably it's a question of priorities.The bus resort liner stops right outside the hotel when you arrive, so it's possible to arrive from Chitose on the 9.30 bus around midday, and ride the afternoon.

rooms don't have the stale ciggie smell of some older Japanese hotels also. Recommended.

The hotel is well located within walking distance (also has shuttles) from the slopes. The rooms were clean and functional. The hot bath makes for a good way to soothe the muscles after a day on the slopes. Recommended!

There is no room service though so better to plan for dinner given the limited options around.
