Fodor's Expert Review Abashiri Central Hotel

Minami 2 Nishi 3-7, Abashiri, Hokkaido, 093-0012, Japan

Creature comforts await you at this downtown hotel, which seems a world away from rugged outback seaport city of Abashiri. Western-style rooms done up in shades of yellows and blues, spacious Japanese rooms, and combination rooms overlook a main road out front or a parking lot out back. Fish from the local icy waters are a specialty of the Grand Glacier restaurant, which serves Japanese, Chinese, and French fare. Although breakfast (Japanese or Western) goes for ¥1,300, the weekday lunch buffet is a deal at ¥1,500. English speakers are on staff.

PROS

  • in the town center
  • caters to foreign visitors
  • Japanese style rooms are especially good value

CONS

  • cookie-cutter hotel design
  • boring views
  • can get busy with weddings
