One of the best hotel stays I've had in Japan. - Extraordinarily convenient - you walk out of Otaru station and there it is! - Amazing breakfast buffet - so much food, so much variety, high quality sashimi and other ingredients - Sizable onsen baths, perfect way to relax after a long trip - The area is very walkable to shopping districts, the canal, etc, and Otaru station connects you with buses and trains to go anywhere else you need - Friendly and efficient staff Literally zero complaints.
Located just a stone’s throw from the JR Otaru station, this hotel is very conveniently located. We arrived in Otaru early and as it was too early to check in, we left our luggages with the hotel and went out sightseeing before returning in the evening to check in. Took a walk to Otaru canal before making our way up to Tenguyama before returning to check in in the evening. Thought the room was slightly smaller than the Dormy Inn Express Hakodate Goryokaku but definitely much more crowded here. There is a natural hot spring communal bath available within the hotel that can be used from 3pm to 9am overnight. Body care, head care and foot care massage are available at a price. Wifi access is available though a little weak. Complimentary noodle soup is available from 9.30pm to 11pm. Buffet breakfast has a good variety of items. …
As soon as you come out of Otaru station, you'll see this hotel right across the road. They staff are great and it's incredibly clean and well maintained. The room size is decent for Japan too! They also have saunas/ Japanese public baths but we never used them as we just didn't have time during our short stay.
Love the location - across the street from Otaru station. The room was not spacious but quite functional. My kids really enjoyed free ramen and lovely breakfast spread. I enjoyed the onsen very much. Will definitely stay here again.
Pros: - very good location near otaru train station surrounded by restaurant and cafe, and also near seafood market - free ramen at 9.30pm and free morning coffee at hotel lobby - the hotel have onseen - staff can speak english - every floor provided vending machine and ice cube. Some floor provide soft drink some alcohol only vending machine - the room is clean, with basic necessities like tooth brush, comb, shaver are provided - free 2 bottle of mineral water every day, tea, coffee also provided in room - hot water works very well - the room have authentic japanese style - the hotel using a unique music box song thru the room alley that bring charm - during our stay the room is noise proof not heard any noise from the outside. Cons: - hotel lobby is small - hotel car drop doesnt have cover. It will be problem during rainy day. - the room is very very small. We order a room with 2 adults and 1 kid (6 years old). Its even harder if you bring lot of bags. No space to move. -the toilet also very small, tight space with low roof. No bath tube. - the place to hang clothes is only for 5 clothes maximum - free wifi is very slow, almost not working - tv is out of date - heater is not very warm at night still feel cold…
We have just ended our stay here. Having heard a lot of good things about Dormy Inn chain so decided to stay here. Pros Breakfast was good. Onsen was good. Room size was big Cons Shockingly bad service. The guy who checked us in did not explain anything. Did not smile. We did not know how the onsen works, when to check out, where to go for breakfast. He just thrust us the English pamphlet whereas I noticed that the other Japanese who checked in was given explanations. This is the minimum expected of the reception at a hotel. Did not receive the usual Japanese hospitable greetings when we entered the hotel after a day out as with the other hotels in Japan.
It is just a few minutes walk from Otaru train station, you can walk easily to a lot of restaurants & attractions. Apart from fresh seafood at the Japanese style buffet breakfast, there were also some interesting local items. Late evening they serve small bowls of hot noodles to guests. The female onsen is nice but small, it was very crowded at night & then there was just me during the morning time. I definitely recommend staying here.
Our room was small and working out where to store our bags was a bit of a challenge. But it had every thing we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The location is excellent- we could see the station from our room and it is just a short walk to take in the sights of this charming town. The onsen is excellent and the noodles served every evening were delicious. The hotel is justly proud of its breakfast buffet which has a huge range of Japanese and Western dishes. Staff were lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Otaru and hope to return.
Stone's throw from the JR station, next to Le Tao cake shop if you're craving for cake. Smallish but very clean, stayed for 2 nights. Great onsen. Very good buffet selection at breakfast both western and japanese. Totally enjoyed food there. Walking distance to shopping street, about 15 min and lots of eateries for choice. Free ramen supper.
The Hotel is the favorite of the trip. The location is very good, just opposite the Otaru Station. And nearby the supermarket and seafood market. The design of the whole hotel is very careful, paying attention to the needs of the travelers. Although the hotel is in front of the station, it is very valuable that there is a wonderful hot spring. The hotel also offers free ramen noodles from 9:30pm to 11pm. The famous breakfast is really tasty and delicious. There are fresh sashimi, salmon eggs, and crab meat for breakfast. Every service staff smiles very much. When I was planning the itinerary, I was hesitant to stay in Otaru one night or not. Later I found it quite worthwhile. The only pity is that the male staff at the counter is more indifferent and expressionless, and there is no kindness from female employees. 這次的小樽入住的飯店是這幾天最喜歡的飯店。地點很好，就在小樽車站對面，靠近三角市場而且對面還有一間超市。整個飯店設計很細心，注重旅客的需求，飯店雖然就在車站前面，但是很難能可貴的是竟然有大眾泡湯池，還包含露天風呂。飯店還貼心附贈免費拉麵當宵夜。 早餐竟然就有新鮮的鮭魚生魚片，鮭魚卵，和蟹肉。每位服務人員都笑容可掬非常的親切。 當初在規劃行程的時候一直猶豫要不要在小樽住一個晚上，後來發覺還蠻值得的。 唯一可惜的是櫃檯的男性員工比較冷漠面無表情，沒有女性員工來的親切。…
