Jozankei View Hotel
Total rating: 3.5
My first impression of the hotel was the lobby. Wow - fancy chandeliers and huge ornate vases.
The hotel is big too, with lots of kid-friendly activities (at least we saw them listed, but we didn't actually go check them out).
The tatami room was nice, with comfortable mattresses. We had a nice view of the river/gorge area from our room (1529).
We had a traditional Japanese dinner, with the yukatas provided by the hotel. Good dinner, with lots of variety.
- big, clean hotel with nice snow view
- big, comfortable room with tatami
- a walking distance to convenience store; family mart
- variety of food, delicious food
enjoying staying in this hotel, satisfied, awesome
In need of some renovation
A rather big hotel in Jozankei, about 50 minutes ride from Sapporo. I consider it a historic hotel. Some rooms are renovated, while some have not. The lobby is quite big and with a big souvenir shop selling very many items.
We stayed in a renovated room, but most furniture are kept with the old ones. It was quite spacious, and with most amenities you would need. We enjoyed the Japanese dinner in the restaurant, some of the food items are quite good, such as the tofu and the dumpling.
There are more than one hot springs in the hotel. The hot spring located on the basement occupies two levels, with multiple pools. The outdoor pools provide abundance area and good enjoyment.
The hotel has a very big breakfast restaurant also located on the basement. It said it house 700 people at one time. It offers buffet style breakfast, with lots of items, both Japanese and Western. The restaurant has on one side very big windows so guests have a very good view of the trees and bushes nearby.
Onsen experience in hotel
This hotel is far from the city located in rural Hokkaido. Probably this is the biggest hotel in the area with around 3 to 4 connecting buildings. The lobby is spacious and offers its own convenience store.
Despite the hotel size, it desperately needs renovation as the lobby, amenities and rooms were past their glory days. Fortunately, the service was good and the rooms were the biggest i have encountered in my various tours in different areas of Japan. If available, you may request for Japanese themed rooms for authentic nippon ambiance.
This hotel also offers onsen spa in the basement and uppermost floor with open area option. A must try especially during winter season.
The main restaurant offers buffet with plenty of food options. The three night stay is worth it. Overall, the experience is just satisfactory but if you’re in a big group this is the best choice.
Jozankei View Hotel
Large indoor play pool area but very crowded, abit mould on the outdoor areas, could be cleaner. Dinner buffet was amazing, best we had on our sapporo trip. Breakfast buffet was ok. Room was clean and with good views. Onsen was relaxing, indoor and outdoor, but might need more maintenance as my sister and I had slight rash after using.
