5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Jul 2019
The Otaru Canal view is just outside your window.
Free parking inside the hotel itself.
Spacious room for Japan standard. Clean space and toilets.
We are young couple with 2 kids and we were given room with 4 single beds!
Warm welcome from the hotel staff and they are always smiling.
Almost all the attractions in Otaru are within walking distance from this Hotel.

Best part of this hotel is you can look down Otaru Carnal from your room. It’s located just in front of the carnal and closed to markets, shops and restaurants. No bottled water in room but sink water is drinkable. Cleansing oil, moisturizer and bath towels are front desk. Room is tiny but clean. They charge a parking fee to hotel guests too.

This hotel is wonderful! The service staff were accommodating and patient and were able to answer every question we asked. The carpark was unfortunately not free (1200 yen) but it was high tech with the machine lifting the car into their parking space like the James Bond movies. The room was nice but unfortunately cramped, but it was extremely comfortable. The hotel was a 10-15 minute walk to the shopping street, which was convenient for a quick dinner or snack in the morning. The room also overlooks the Otaru canal which is a nice and clean canal which many tourists go and see. There is also free coffee.

This hotel is located just right across Otaru Canal so we had a great view of it from the balcony. It is centrally located to most of the tourist spots we visited. It was near the JR station so we decided to just walk instead of taking the taxi. The hotel looked a bit old fashioned, but for me, that added to its charm.

We booked a room for four people, but we found it to be a bit cramped. We had to take turns opening our luggages. The room can get too warm at times even if we had turned on the A/C. The bath area was separate from the toilet area, which can be an advantage or disadvantage at times. Great exhaust though. There were other room amenities and/or facilities as well including the pajamas, which is quite typical of Japanese hotels.

They offer free coffee at the lobby as well as some skin care amenities. You can also borrow an umbrella. They also offer discount coupon for the restaurant nearby although we weren't able to use it. We arrived a few hours early before check-in time, but we were allowed to leave our luggages at the lobby. Thing to note though...their staff were not as friendly as the other hotels I've been to. They were accommodating, but something just seemed a bit off.

Room tip: Choose the room with a view of the canal

Great location - directly opposite the Otaru Canal and less than 10 mins walk from the JR station. Slightly further to the popular Hokkaido dessert brands and the music box museum (about 20 mins walk).

Room size was little smaller than average Japanese hotel rooms. Tight for 2 pax and with luggages. Felt it could be better. Think they do have bigger sized rooms available.

Service was within expectations as with Japanese service standards.

An amazing hotel that is simple to find. Beautiful view of the Otaru Canal and close to most tourist attraction, all in walking distance. The staff are helpful and friendly, plus free coffee and umbrellas for guests to use. The room was full of Japanese amenities, automated toilets, humidifier were provided. the room was quiet and adequately kept in a comfortable temperature.

Room tip: The view of the courtyard is magnificent.
