Stayed in furano just to tour the blue lake and Farm tomita. The staff in this hotel was hospitable and welcoming. Enjoyed the little map provided which showed the local eats and shops. Rooms are clean and simple. Overall a pleasant experience.
Stayed for 3 nights. Had 2 young kids but was charged even though space was sufficient. Toilet will be cold as the cold air seeped thru the gaps. Best to use their relax spa for warm shower. The charge for each kid came with a small towel, a pair of room slippers, toothbrush and bath towel. Anyway, it is situated in the small town of Furano. Takes 20 mins to drive to ski resort. I would say it is a convenient hotel to stay if travelling to Furano ski resort, Asahikawa Zoo or Mushing Works Dog Sledding.
I came to Furano to ski. Tried to find a place to stay that is at close proximity to the slopes but also convenient to transfer to and from Airport. This hotel fits both criteria. Hokkaido Resort Liner stops right in front of the hotel and there are two buses that goes to the Prince Hotel and the new Furano Prince Hotel from JR Furano station which is just opposite the hotel. There are also many reasonably priced restaurants around the hotel. The hotel staff are friendly and welcoming. There are storage locks provided for skiing equipment. The room is comfortable with modern amenities. Breakfast is a choice between Japanese and Western. Highly recommended to stay as an alternative to the Prince chains.
We are a family of 4 and we booked two separate rooms and requested for connecting room or next to each other. However, the property did not inform us in advanced that they do not have the same type of room within the same floor. We ended up in different floor. The rooms are small and limited space to walk or open our luggage. Hotel only provides choice of Japanese or Western breakfast set but the quality is nothing spectacular. I think it's suitable for solo or business travellers, but not recommended for family.
We had expected a little more than a "box" type hotel. The room we had was so small the it was impossible to open 2 suitcases at the same time. Once again, no AC as it is shut off at this time of year. Was able to somewhat open a window which helped cool the room down. To get into bed, you had to climb in from the foot. Bed was comfortable once you got in but frustrating to do so. Apart from that, the staff were extremely pleasant and welcoming and certainly made you feel at home. Very professional. The restaurant in the hotel is much like a cafeteria in appearance and once again the staff was great. F or supper we had the curry schnitzel and a plate of spaghetti with meat sauce. Both were excellent. Would return to eat at hotel but not stay because of .the room.
Oct 16 The transit time from our soft serve snack in Noboribetsu to arrival in central Furano was about 3H. Furano appears to be a small, sleepy town without tall buildings and not many people walking outside. The counter help spoke English fluently which was a big help. The onsens is off the lobby. The room was the most basic and smallest on this trip. The sink is in the sleeping area, not in the bathroom. One of the two beds is pushed into the corner of the room. I saw the onsen but did not go in. Those in our group that did said it was fine. Before breakfast we noticed a picture of the owner on the lobby wall, and underneath the picture was an elderly lady reading the newspaper. I mentioned to my friend that the lady in the picture looked similar to the lady reading. And then we learned that our speculation was correct. So funny. We got a generous breakfast in the adjoining resto. We had a choice of either Japanese or western breakfast. I had the former -- lots of food and a glass container of Hokkaido milk. Despite the cons, this hotel gives a lot for only $154/night.
Small room but clean and comfort, large windows with good view & fresh air. Opposite to the Furano JR station with several sight seeing shuttle bus routes. A large carpark (free) next to the hotel that's convenient if you drive. Facilities and furnitures in the room are not new but it's not an issue. I didn't use the tub /shower as I went to the big bath everyday, it's small but no complaint as expected. On Saturday afternoon, located at the street behind the hotel, there was a local festival with many kiosks selling foods and drinks, each dishes about 500-700yen, you can spend some time or even treat it as a dinner, worth to go. I was regent for not taking the plan with breakfast, I am surprised that all nearby cafe open after 10am or 11am. Furthermore no convenient stores close to the hotel so you should well prepare your breakfast the night before.
Well located next to JR Station and tourist information centre and walking distance to the various eateries. Service staff were friendly and speak English (important for me!). We had a twin bedded at the top floor. Rather smallish room. 2 choices for breakfast; western or Japanese. Nothing spectacular but good enough for me and my wife. Parking was just next to the hotel. We were on a 1 week driving tour of Hokkaido and comparing prices with similar hotels, Natulux seemed more pricey than others.
We had room 101, the annex. It is not worth the money. On the plus, it's got a washing machine Minus Main road, train track and hotel car par right outside the window! Walls very thin and not sound proof at all Also bathroom was moldy and very dusty extractor fans There is cooking facilities but a pan which I would have thrown out about 5 years ago,two tiny forks, one kitchen knife and everything I had to wash first it was horrible. There was dirt behind the sink all over the wall and on the sides and at that price I was appalled to see they couldn't even afford to put a new sponge there. Honestly, it's quite a joke No space to put anything (e.g. Suitcase) The so called spa was a joke too, don't be fooled the spa/onsen is a) not natural and b) not much bigger than the bath tub in your room For breakfast you have a choice if Japanese or western breakfast. We had western which was not to out taste.some miso soup (not vegetarian even though I asked for a veggie breakfast), very runny eggs, a glass of milk, ham for the non veggies, a salad (?) and seasonal fruit and yoghourt, as well as 2 bits of bred.. not great, again considering the price Would we stay again? Definitely not
Well-situated hotel located within the city centre. If you drive, there are two carparks for you to park in. The service staff were polite and helpful (thank you for the hand drawn map of recommended food places in Furano). The rooms were slightly small but clean and functional. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting furano
