The Hakkoda Hotel is located about 10 min drive from the Ropeway but there is a 24 hour on demand shuttle so it's not a hassle at all.
The hotel is great - a rustic log cabin. Rooms are spacious. A very nice on-site onsen.
However, the highlight is definitely the food. Both the French Restaurant and the Japanese service amazing degustation type meals that were high quality with impeccable service. The wine list was definitely worth a look.
The staff were all attentive, friendly and went out of their way.
We'll definitely be back..
