Hokkaido Winter 2013 北海道冬季之旅 - Kushiro Royal Inn 釧路ロイヤルイン

Stayed 04.02.2013 (1 night)
Booked via email (

- Twin room cost 9,100 yen, inclusive of breakfast. Small room size but equipped with all the necessities and amenities. Front desk was approachable and patient to cater to our needs, and helped to arrange a sightseeing taxi to get to Akan International Crane Center, despite not being very well-versed in English.

- Strategic location of the hotel - less than 3 mins walk from Kushiro JR Station. Upon stepping out of the train station, look to your right and Kushiro Royal Inn is located just behind a church. Washo Market (和商市场) is a stone throw away from the hotel as well. Taxis are also readily available in front of train station.

- There is a good selection of hotels are available nearby Kushiro JR Station. Eventually decided on Royal Inn after reading multiple rave reviews commending on their sumptuous spread of breakfast. Restaurant is located on the 10th floor (only open during breakfast hours), providing a good view of Kushiro city. I can only say the variety of bread served for breakfast was incredible, definitely comparable to what you get in a traditional bakery! Bread was fresh from the oven and tasted delicious. Buffet table also provided a good spread of both Japanese and Western cuisine. Definitely a fulfilling breakfast to start off one's day!

- Unable to access the reservation page on their English website and had to do it via email ( Do ask for non-smoking rooms if you do not like the lingering smell of nicotine in the room.
