    Traditional ryokan with fantastic dinner”

    Ginsenkaku sits in the heart of Sounkyo Onsen. It's only a five minute walk away from the bus terminal. There is a seicomart nearby in case you need. While the room looks dated, it comes with all the necessities that I need. You have to prepare your own futon though.. The highlight of this place is the dinner. You'll get a sukiyaki hotpot with a buffet spread and free flow of drinks and alcohol. A great value for money place to wind down and relax with your family.

    Although a small restaurant but the dinner buffet were great, with my package we also had an all-you-can-drink for 60 minutes. The hotel do have a private (family) bathhouse and sells a discounted ticket to the nearby gondola up to the mountain.

    Private onsen facility is a plus. Location is prime as it is so close to the ropeway station. We did not try dinner but breakfast was amazing. The room is a little dated and we spotted some mosquitoes.

    Value-for-money stay in this hot spring hotel”

    We're kind of very late for check-in, lights in the lobby were turn off completely, but glad to find our key left at the reception's table. Car park was full, thus no choice but to park right besides the main entrance. Room is very spacious and clean, just some noise from the main street. Enjoyed both its indoor and outdoor onsen. There's also a rather small private onsen available, just need to reserve the timing required on the whiteboard. Dishes for breakfast is good, with a number of variety, but the experience could be better if the staff did not keep reminding us to finish our meal on-time by 9am, no allowance to stay a little longer. Unfortunately I don't see any friendly staff here, and also waited for 15min for a staff to appear at the reception to enquire something before we check-out. Hotel is very close to the ropeway station. Overall is a good stay.

    Breakfast is the best thing”

    The hotel is around 5 minutes walk from bus stop at the post office and 3 minutes from the ropeway. The room is Japanese style tatami, where you have to make your own futon, with instruction in the room. They have private onsen available for reservation, although it's small and a bit stinky. Just go to B1 floor and right your name and room down to reserve. The bad thing is the reception opens from 8am to 10pm only and you need to ask for shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner from them, since they are not available in the room. We arrived late and failed to do so. Thus, we only have a soap to use for shower in the room. They, probably, expect most guest to take bath in the onsen. The best thing about this hotel is the taste and variety of their breakfast, which includes salmon, saba, salmon roe, tarako roe, shishamo, chicken nuggets, korokke, soba, gyudon, and a lot more.

    Almost perfect stay at Sounkyo”

    Well-located in Onsen street, it is a few steps from Kurodake Onsen and Ropeway station. U can't miss it! Our room was big enough and clean in Japanese style. A private bathroom was included inside our room. We've also enjoyed family onsen on B1 floor and there were public onsen as well. The dinner was in a semi-buffet style which u could have a taste of traditional Japanese cuisine. The breakfast was simple yet satisfactory. Good for family with small children. Just a reminder: No air conditioner which means a bit hot in summer nights. They provide fan though.

    Very happy with this place!”

    The location couldn't be better, but it was the staff, especially in the restaurant, that impressed us the most. They went WAY out of their way to accommodate my wife's dietary needs, even phoning our room one evening when we were 20 minutes late for our dinner time to find out if we were okay! The backdrop to all of this was the incredible autumn colors of the surrounding forest and mountains, very spectacular.

    Good short stay.”

    We arrived a little late after going up the Mt Kurodate Ropeway and going round in circles for a while so the kaiseki dinner appeared to be prepared in a little rush. Despite that the dinner was good with the free flow a good variety of drinks. Enjoyed the private onsen. We had to rush off early the next morning and had to skip breakfast. The hotel is well located right across the visitor center next to the ropeway. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a good short stay.

    Hotel in Sounkyo Town”

    location, food, onsen

    The hotel is located at a strategic location in the town of Sounkyo, right next to the Visitor's Center and the Ropeway. The breakfast spread was absolutely delicious, though I didn't get to try the dinner as it was fully booked when I arrived. The hotel is a little dated, with basic rooms and certain areas around the hotel that have not had proper upkeep. The onsen is lovely, I liked it that they have a private onsen where couples can soak in the bath together.

    Stay at Hotel Marred By Late Checkout Charges”

    Very near to the cable car station and quiet environment.

    Our family booked two rooms in June 13. The hotel appeared old and rather run-down at first glance. The rooms were clean and simple and reasonable for group of three and four. However, we had to lay our tatami mats, unlike all other Japanese rooms we stayed in Hakkaido. We book came with dinner. We were served steamboat dinner although we would prefer Japanese cuisine using local fresh produce. The amount of food served was very generous but some cabbage leaves were yellow and bruised and the pork did not tasted fresh. My daughter accidentally misplaced her handphone up at the mountain and this resulted in our delayed return to the hotel for checkout by 20 mins. As a result, the hotel slapped us with a 1000yen late charge for the seven of us. This came as a shock as we were not informed about late charges prior to check in. This marred our experience. The hotel is right down the foot of the cable station and so convenient. The hot spring is small with basic amenities.
