I stayed at the Grand Hotel Daisetsu this past fall. I chose the hotel because of the proximity to Asahi-dake (the tallest mountain in Japan) which I had come to climb. Even before I arrived, I had encountered their wonderful service as one of the front desk agents tried ever so hard to help me with my booking. The is a bus that runs from Asahikawa airport to directly outside the hotel (about 1:15 driving time) but there are only three services each day so plan ahead.
I had a tatami (Japanese style) room with great views over Asahi-daki. The room was clean and comfortable (if a little dated in style). There are both indoor and outdoor onsen which we great after a long day of trekking, I had breakfast and dinner in the hotel each day and the food was great. There is free wifi in the lobby area. The hotel is in a remote location and there are no convenience stores nearby so if you need anything in particular, bring it with you. There is a small shop in the hotel and of course vending machines for drinks (including beer).
I highly recommend the hotel to anyone wanting great service in the area.
