    Comfortable beds, good location

    Hotel Akankoso is located on the shores of Lake Akan in a small town. At first the hotel seems a little shabby with stained carpet and furniture. But the room was clean and comfortable, and there were many little extras that made it a great place to stay. The staff was friendly, there was free soft serve and coffee in the lobby and the onsen (hot spring pool) was free. There were robes (like kimono), hot and cold water, good wifi and comfortable beds in the rooms. My room was spacious with a tiny bathroom containing a deep tub. The location of the hotel is next to the boat dock and 15 minutes walk to the Ainu village. The hotel has a restaurant which you must pre-book, but there are restaurants in the town nearby. The hotel allows smoking so the rooms do smell a bit, but we got one that was acceptable. The public onsen is free but there are also two private ones that you can reserve for a fee. Just be aware that there is a hefty onsen tax added to the room charge, whether or not you use the onsen. When we checked out, we were given a melon bread each - nice for breakfast.

    Staff were very polite and patience, though their English Speaking were not generally good. Set dinner in hotel was excellent. I would definitely rebook the hotel the next time I visit the area.

    Excellent location and pretty environment

    I stayed in this hotel with three friends in a 4-person room. The room was quite large, and we had enough space to pack our luggage. The room was pretty, and some areas were the traditional Japanese style. Also, there was an indoor hot spring on the top of the hotel (forgot the exact floor), and it still opened at midnight. No matter when you checked-in or came back to the hotel, you could have the chance to enjoy the hot spring. The environment was acceptable, and the facilities were well prepared. For the location, this hotel was just next to the Lake Akan, and you don't need to walk for a long way. It was the highlight of this hotel.
