We stayed here for two days on April 3rd in three rooms. The environment here is very beautiful. You won't believe there is such a beautiful place in the world. The hotel is opposite a lake. There are only four or 42 rooms, each facing the lake. The room we chose has a hot spring, with snow-capped mountains and lake views in the distance. The hot spring is the only one in Japan whose hot spring water is golden. The room is very Big, but the bed is a bit thin. The most famous product here is Bai Lao Beef. You must try it here because in April, the hot spring here needs to be renovated and repaired, so men can only enjoy it for a period of time in the morning, afternoon and evening for women. But they can be used. The other hot spring place has no scenery to speak of, but the hot spring water here is very beautiful and slippery. The staff is very responsible and polite. The dinner is also good, but the portion is a little small! Isolation is a museum, and the Iru people, the original inhabitants of Hokkaido, can go and see it when they have time.

Although the hotel is only 400m away from Shirao Station, it is actually more than 1km away on foot. The hotel does not have a shuttle bus. When I arrived, I called a taxi at Shirao Station to the hotel. When I left, I thought it was 400m, so I just walked by myself, and then there was nothing else! 😢😢😢 The environment of the hotel is very good, the rooms are also large, and both the hot spring pool in the room and the public hot spring pool in the hotel are very comfortable. The breakfast and dinner provided by the hotel are standard, not amazing. The hotel faces a large lake, which is frozen in winter. In the evening, thousands of crows fly over, which is very spectacular!

The child is almost 12 years old. When traveling with three people, we must sleep in three beds. The room facilities are very good, the hotel is very new, and the hot spring bath is very comfortable. After bathing, there is ice tea and popsicles to eat. The child is very happy. The food in the hotel is quite satisfactory. , Kaiseki cuisine for one stay and two meals. The service staff of Japanese hotels are very cute and considerate. It is also very suitable to use this hotel as a transit stop before going to Noboribetsu. The Ainu Folk Culture Village next to it is worth a visit. By the way, the hotel In Bai Lao, Bai Lao Beef is excellent. There are several specialty barbecue restaurants near the hotel. Recommended

As a century-old hotel, Hoshino Resorts never disappoints. This Kai is the first hotel in the Kai series in Hokkaido. The location is really special. It is like an outdoor peach garden pure in the world. The onsen architecture of the moor spring is inspired by the indigenous people of Hokkaido. In addition, Shirao also has a special place. The ranch here produces top-quality Japanese beef. I recommend that friends who come to Hokkaido must come and check in and make reservations and plans in advance~ The only regret is that because the dinner was late, the dinner was only booked for one person. I am also very grateful to Ctrip for their efforts in contacting the hotel and finally adding breakfast for my parents. The business is really good.

The restaurant facilities, food quality and staff service are all top-notch. The only thing to improve is the △ hot spring. Because there are not many people, I went there twice. There is no staff on standby at 10 pm and 10 am. If there is an accident, I don’t know who will be there can help.

Lightning protection! Hoshinokai Poroto made a promotional magazine and saw it in a photo. The beauty of staying down and stretching the hips. The facilities should be given a negative score. The curtains are very transparent. I woke up at 4 in the morning. The light in the small table can’t be turned off. I have to use something to block the mattress. It is narrow and has no supporting force. The cotton quality of the bedding is poor. It is outdated and has a strong decoration taste. I was shocked by Roto. There has been no progress for three years and even regressed. The spare parts are quite stingy. The quality of the tea bar is not even as good as a Samsung  Express Hotel. The floor has gray slippers, which are big and difficult to wear. The hot spring is very small. Quite perfunctory origami with dried flowers. Hoshino World will not order again. Breakfast is below average. Dinner is also a general. It is worse than the four worlds I lived in before the epidemic. There are two worlds behind that can’t be cancelled. It is too low-end. Heya’s Bizhizuo is absolutely the only conscience in the industry. The service staff is enthusiastic and proactive. Finally, I give a bad review to the layman designer.
