Surprisingly, this hotel made an impression on us. It was memorable. A step back in time. Starting when we entered the lobby, a traditional host received us wearing a kimono and greeted us with warm wet towels to freshen up. There were no words expressed, but we felt welcomed. The hotel is old charm. In it’s heydays, it probably was the grandeur of the town. The place to be. I was worried that it was too old, the plumbing wasn’t great. But in Japan, we’ve never been to a hotel like it. The rooms were huge, enough for six person with two twin beds and four futons. The four of us had two rooms; really enough for 12! There is a living room with tatami mats and tea table to do your tea ceremony if you are so inclined. Tatami mats were clean and traditional; not a speck of dust or hair to be seen. Around the twin beds is a lace curtain. Surprisingly the curtain keeps the warmth in while you sleep cause the room is so large. We had a half board booking including a traditional set dinner with 13 or 15 small dishes including Abashiri crab and sushi. Too much to eat, but very memorable, very tasty. Some guests chose to wear the yakata robes at dinner. We should have; to add to the atmosphere. Each dining room has a elevated stage. I guess in 1948, dinner and shows were a big thing. Arrive early. Dinner times must be prebooked and if you arrive later than 8pm, no dinner for you. I had difficulty planning on how to reach this hotel. Could we walk? No. Is there a bus? No. Is there a shuttle from the hotel? No and yes. The shuttle is only twice a day (see pic) From JR Abashiri, the only way is to take a cab, 10-15 minutes approx. There are activities near the hotel on the frozen lake. There’s ice fishing and snow shoeing. The snow shoes can be rented from the hotel @ 1000yen for 3 hours. We should have stayed an extra night. The onsen had several pools inside and out. The only comment is that there are no lockers. Just baskets to place your clothes, towels and keys. So be careful with your valuables. Besides the restaurant, there’s a ramen bar and a small counter to buy ice cream and an arcade for kids. There’s a very good gift shop too.

I adored this hotel. Although it is stuck in a bit of a time warp, it oozes charm and I love that they (almost defiantly) refuse to conform into becoming yet another generically bland business hotel. Hotel Abashirikoso has character, and is one of the many hotels I’ve stayed in that I will never forget - and all for good reasons. My room was massive and extremely comfortable. Dinner was fabulous, and the breakfast spread was good. The onsens were lovely, especially the outside one. It was a wonderful experience to sit outside in the warm water surrounded by snow. I felt like a snow monkey! Oh, and there’s a karaoke room which we thoroughly enjoyed! I hope to return here one day during the summer to see the area full of colour. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

This is a weird one. A monument of Japan's 80s asset price bubble, this hotel has several wings containing more rooms that it can ever dream of filling up. On the one hand, you can see where the cost cutting has occurred to keep the behemoth going: there's no air-conditioning in the corridors; the well-worn carpets and furniture look like they have never been replaced since the hotel opened; half the machines in the game room aren't working; bellmen whisk your luggage away on ramshackle trolleys originally meant for ferrying goods. On the other, despite the sad state of the hotel, you can see the staff proudly at work, providing an impeccable level of service. As alluded to in my title, if you come with an open mind this can be a rather enjoyable hotel. The rooms are massive (but in the summer, they can be very hot as the air conditioning struggles to cool the temp down). There's a performance ("so bad it's good") by a local musician in the lobby in the evenings. For furniture lovers, there are some very good examples of mid-century modern pieces scattered around. The hotel has quite an illustrious history if you bother to read up on it on the Japanese-language version of its website. In its heyday, this must have been the grandest establishment in Hokkaido outside of Sapporo. One last thing: I couldn't find any information on whether the hotel has self service laundry, so to pay it forward -- yes there is a little room at the end of the corridor with a separate washer and dryer.

Right next to lake Abashiri, this hotel is far enough from the city to feel isolated with no neighboring establishments to crowd the place. From the lobby and our 6th level room, we see an expanse of pure white powder which is the frozen lake blanketed with fresh snow. At a distant are small tents which we are told are actually locals who bore holes thru the ice and fish! The thought of walking over the ice is daunting as you imagine the ice breaking under your feet and down you go. But we did go a few hundred meters out and you wouldn't know the difference. Your mind is on the cold air and the white around is blinding. Breakfast was buffet but its Japanese style so it's the the lavish spread one would see back home. But breakfast was good. The best part of this hotel - the staff. All of them are just friendly and very helpful.

Stayed here on a winter highlights tour. The hotel was obviously built when money was flowing. It's huge. Arcade, karaoke booth, multiple onsens, banquet rooms on every floor, restaurants, and much more. But then the money stopped and nothing has been updated in decades. It's clean and the rooms are large. The halls and common areas were very cold with kerosene heaters scattered throughout. It wouldn't make sense for them to heat such a large area when there are few guests. I have nothing to compare this to so I gave it a 3.
