If you wanted to stay in one of the better hotels in Kushiro you would probably choose between the ANA, LaVista or Paco Hotel. For non-Japanese expecting English language support, the ANA Hotel is best suited. If you wanted a natural spring Japanese bath you would stay in LaVista or Paco. LaVista probably has a better breakfast, but the Paco Hotel breakfast is not bad and the 12 floor views from the dining room are much better than the views from the LaVista. The jewel in the crown for the Paco hotel is the Crystal Bar. Also located on the 12 floor, the views are good, the staff are friendly and it is a very relaxing place to enjoy a drink. The Paco hotel is older than the LaVista. There is very little English signage and it would well suit the non-Japanese who wanted to get away from other foreign tourists. The Paco Hotel also excels in the variety of massage and other relaxation treatments. The relaxing outdoor bath on the rooftop is somewhat spoilt by the large TV screen. The rooms are standard, the room tempreture settings may be a little high for some non-Japanese but the windows can be opened to let the cool breeze in. Of the three hotels, the Paco is closest to the restaurant district and there is a great robata yaki style restaurant that specializes in oysters just across the road from the hotel. It is called Toraya.
