Stayed at this hotel from 24 to 26 April in 2017. Rooms were a tad small, but to be expected because of the great location. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the Hakodate Morning Market which have some of the freshest seafood around. Also, 10 minutes walk from Toyota/Hertz Car rental which was quite convenient for us when...

When we arrived at JR Hakodate station, immediately can see the hotel signboard about 200 metres in front of us.There is Family Mart 24h convenience store nearby if you wish to buy some food or drinks.The hotel also provided coin laundry and you dont have to bring your own detergent as it is automatically included with 300 yen per wash....

Very disappointed. The hotel didn't have any non-smoking rooms. The room we got is old and rustic. The toilet has't clean and dirty. I can't sleep because i smell smoke all the time. It's a nightmare.

I had a small private room for a resanoble price. The location is perfect just across the train station. So perfect to have the breakfast at the market which is just next to the train station. Overall a possitive stay!

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...
