‌‌We have booked a night stay at Choyotie Sounkyo on 5 Mar 2017 for onsen and to attend Sounkyo Ice Waterfall Festival.   Most of the booking platforms on TripAdvisor were fully booked so we have booked through ctrip as it seems they have rooms available there.   The hotel does provide complimentary bus service to and fro Sapporo Station...

It is located in the mountain area, took us almost 70 min from the Asahikawa downtown to get there. It is good that they include the bus trip. Located beautifully in the mountain area, but only have indoor onsen and are located on the 7 (top) floor and second floor, as far as I know, they have no exterior onsen....

A disappointing experience compared to other hotels we stayed in during our visit to Hokkaido. Despite booking a non-smoking room we were first given one that smelled badly of stale tobacco smoke. When we complained we were given another room but it was almost as bad. The dining room looked old and worn and the buffet dinner and breakfast meals...

Situated a the top of Ryokan district. It is a grant ryokan equipped all it should have. The crew is nice, polite and sociable. The dishes of full course dinner and breakfast will fill up one's whole stomach space. Don't missing enjoy the onsen especially in the morning to see the sun ray rollover from top to bottom of the...

The hotel has a good onsen facility. It has both an indoor and outdoor onsen. The room is large, clean and comfortable. The downside of the hotel is that the hotel can be very busy as there are many tours using the hotel. The dinner buffet can be better. Lots of the food are quite dry.

The room is clean & comfortable. It is fairly spacious with 1 side that has 2 single beds, and another side, which is like a small living area, which has a low table and low chairs, and you can watch TV and make tea here. The onsen has both an outdoor and an indoor section. The restaurant has good sitting...

Stayed one night ( Thank God ) to see the area. Check in at 4pm was a bit slow and the staff did not offer any info regarding the hotel or attractions in the area. Found out later there was a fireworks display at 830pm when I noticed a large crowd gathering by the lobby window. As mentioned by some...

We checked there late in a rainy afternoon. There were many trolley carts for us to serve ourselves. We stayed there in a big dual western and tatami style room which is very un-proportionate to the tiny cruise-cabin-size bathroom which, even as a thin guy, I bumped myself here and there many times. The western beds are worn off with...

We stayed in this hotel as part of the ANA Fly and Drive Package. It was an awful experience. We had to carry our luggage to the rooms and from entering it, it was extremely filthy. There were toothpicks on the floor of the previous guests. Gross! Our cups from the toilet were covered in a sticky yellow liquid with...

“Every room has the mountain view.”
  • Tatami and the thoughtful Japanese-style ceiling.
  • Mountain view with the cloud rolled by.
  • View from my room early in the morning.
  • Long and deep closet which I found not very practical at all.
