Accommodation in Abashiri, Hokkaido (Toyoko Inn Abashiri Ekimae)


IMG_20170516_205541.jpg

Name: Toyoko Inn Abashiri Ekimae

Address: 1 Chome-3-3 Shinmachi, Abashiri-shi, Hokkaidō

Map code:  305 675 176*36

Approx room rate per pax: 8,600 Yen (about a third of the cost of the hotels. thumbs up)

Parking rate: No charge

Free Wi-Fi access: Yes. Unique passcodes in every room.

My rating: 4/5 (Mainly cause the rates are much more affordable.)

Thumbs-up:

  • Off-street parking lots; just behind the hotel
  • Extremely polite service staff
  • Big bottles of shampoo and body foam
  • In-hotel washing and drying machines – two machines each, situated in the laundry room a couple of footsteps from the hotel reception. 100 Yen for 30-min wash and 200 Yen for 30-min drying cycle. No need to bring your own detergent. Heavily used from dinner onwards
  • Right next to the train station

Room for improvement:

  • Staff couldn’t quite understand our requests; language barrier
  • No housekeeping service. Pay a fee to get them to change the towels.
  • Simple breakfast, but that’s how they keep their costs low.
  • Drinking water not available in the rooms. Gotta use the dispenser in the lobby. Another way to keep costs low.

Some notes:

  • Hotels typically charge for parking. Parking rates may vary according to the size of your car.
  • Space is a premium in Japan, so don’t expect super spacious rooms.
  • All hotels we stayed at provided Febreeze or an equivalent. Thumbs up man. Good for them shoes or the carpet.
