Loved the place, the location it is very near to the station, breakfast is great, the room is just nice, love the spa, etc… I had a great time at the place and it has a very reasonable price during the winter season. If I am going back to Hokkaido I will stay here again.
This was the best hotel in our trip. We enjoyed staying here so much. The staff were all very lovely and accomodating. The breakfast was superb with extensive selections. We stayed in the room with private hot spring which was big enough for 3 adults, and the hot spring water even come out from the shower head was really a plus. Would definitely come back and stay here again.
We booked the special suite with its own onsen and full Kaiseki 8 course dinner so it was expensive but well worth the cost. The staff were wonderful, the suite lovely with a nice view and the onsen hot as it should be. We are quite picky eaters but the staff tried very hard to adapt to our tastes but still give us a high class elaborate Japanese dining experience. If you want an insight into a high class ryokan but with some western conveniences (like western beds although the special suites also have a Japanese style room) and are prepared to pay for the experience then I highly recommend the Otaru Furukawa.
At first glance, the hotel appears somewhat bizarre but our stay there is wonderfully cozy and homely. We booked the Canal View room and that comes with a cute little balcony complete with a hanging birdcage seat. The room is wonderfully decorated like someone's home. The staff were super friendly and check-in process is super efficient Parking costs a very reasonable 500 yen for the stay. The Otaru canal is within easy walking distance. The breakfast is wonderful with an extensive Japanese and Western selection with freshly baked breads. We would highly recommend this hotel for location, friendly staff and value-for-money.
Understated exterior--you could easily walk past it without knowing it was there. We had a lovely, large room with a great view of the harbour. Saw our cruise ship come in. Booking private time in the onsen was great. Sure, it was hot, but that is the point.
They discriminate against customers and are very unfriendly. I do not want to go again. From welcome drinks to towels, hotel staffs discriminate their customers. The worst is the unfriendly staff. It was the worst trip.
Otaru is one of my favourite city in Sapporo. Decided to stay for 2 nights during my recent 2nd visit. Was very impressed with the service at Otaru Furukawa. The room is small but it is good enough for a solo traveller like me. The location is just right opposite the canal. The breakfast and the dinner is superb and you can get a nice seating facing the canal- try to avoid busy dining area. The onsen is small but I am happy to have it all to myself most of the time. Will stay here again for sure if the room rate is within my budget next trip.
I have visited Otaru before but this was the first time I stayed overnight. Otaru Furukawa is one of the 4 ryokans (traditional Japanese inns) in Otaru with hot spring. We chose Otaru Furukawa because it was in the shopping area and city center. We preferred the traditional Japanese style rooms overlooking the canal. However, they were all sold out so we stayed at 2 western style twin rooms with city view at the end of July 2018 for 1 night. This is a small inn right by the Canal shopping mall and within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and tourist attractions. Most customers seemed to be Japanese. The rooms were very small but clean just like most of the Onsen hotels in Japan. The decor was dated but charming and cozy. There are both indoors and open-air public hot spring areas. We loved the open-air pool with fresh lemons. The food was excellent. I pre-ordered the set course meal for dinner (traditional Kaiseki Cuisine chosen by the chef to highlight the summer theme of Otaru). There were about 7 courses with wine and Saki. The breakfast is buffet style. We arrived the inn from the airport by 1 taxi and left for Sapporo by 2 taxis. We could have taken the train to Sapporo but I did not want to load and unload the luggage many times. We were told that the trunk space of the taxies at Otaru is much smaller than those at the airport which was true. We loved the location and shopped at several boutiques at night. The service was excellent and the hotel staff was very friendly. Some of the staff members speak very good English! I will stay at the inn again if I can get a larger room and not in peak seasons.…
Great traditional onsen hotel along Otaru canal, room is spacious and cozy, customer service is warm and good. We'd tried its Kaiseki dinner and breakfast, well, we'd say it's averagely ok, not very impressive though. All and all, we just love this hotel, its well-decorated interiors and ambience are definitely a plus factor along with.
It is a cosy traditional style onsen close to the canal and ten minutes from jr station. Staff are friendly and helpful . It gives you a feel of a japanese home with study and traditional furniture. A morning walk along the canal and harbour front is enjoyable， quiet and pleasant. Dinner is well presented and sumptous and service is good.
