We opted for this hotel due to location. It is opposite from Hakodate JR station and there is tram stop nearby which is important. Tram is cheaper and can bring us to several tourists spot in Hakodate. Hakodate seafood market is about 5 min away from the hotel. This allows us to revisit the market again and get the stuff...

Stayed overnight on the way from Tokyo to Sapporo. Served it's purpose as a rest point between our travel points. Good reception staff and very customer centric. Wifi is strong. Bathroom is standard and clean enough. 3-5 minutes walk from the JR station with suitcases in tow, near a family mart for overnight necessities. Good walk to the morning hakodate...

Smile Hotel Hakodate is a budget hotel, know what to expect as you get what you pay for. Despite some fellow reviewers' complaints about a lack of cleanliness in the hotel rooms, our room was decent and clean (maybe we were lucky?). Similar to many business hotels in Japan, the room is small. Basic amenities (e.g. hairdryer, shower gel etc.)...

Very convenient place because just situated across the road opposite JR station. There are also many food restaurants that can be reached by walking distance. Room is decent but small. Bathroom is small as well. Overall I think my stay was average. I just wish that the hotel staff can be more friendly and approachable because few times I tried...

Family of 14 (including 2 children under 8years and 1 baby under 6 mths) travelling together! Double Room is pretty small and so is the bathroom but we were ok with it. Location is very good - just across the JR station and tram station is also sorta across the road. Staff are very accommodating. Shops and cafes all within...

Great location. Just right across the street from JR Station and near the Hakodate-Ekimae Tram station as well as other sight-seeing spots are all within walking distance from the hotel or a short bus ride. We paid ~ $80 USD /n for it. Other than the cheap prices, and location, that's about it. Hotel is quite dated and doesn't look...

Very disappointed. We checked in early and they didn't have any non-smoking rooms. The room we got is old and rustic. The condition of the entire hotel is pretty bad actually. The nearby four points by Sheraton is only 30 - 40 USD more. Should have booked that one instead. You lost ur smile as soon as u step into...

Booked this last minute due to a flight cancellation. It did the job and no complaints but the rooms are a little bit run down. For the money its adequate and seemed clean enough. Bathroom was small but clean, shower was ok. Location is good being across the street from the train station.

Great location just outside the Hakodate JR station, bus terminal and the street car station (Hakodate Ekimae) which will take you all over Hakodate for sightseeing. Room is small but adequately equipped. Lots of restaurants including the popular Daimon Yokocho within 5 mins walk and ramen shop right next to the hotel.

The hotel is located directly opposite Hakodate JR station. Rooms are extremely clean. Staff speaks good English making check-in checkout fuss free. Room size is very small though. More of a business hotel.
