          I am looking to book at the hotel for April. What room has the hot tub on the balcony?

          I don't think they have rooms with hot tub in the balcony. They only have a public hot tub both inside n outside on 4th floor. You may confirm on the website.

          Not any room has hot tub on the balcony of this hotel. There is public bath on 4th floor. The public bath has tub on the balcony. But no family bath is not equiped.
