we made a short trip to Otaru to visit some of its good izakayas, we took a room with 4 beds, it was a nice surprise the distribution of the spaces in the room. Our room had two almost separate areas, in the main area two beds and a couch, the second area was a small terrace with the other two beds, the access to the terrace was a staircase in the room. the terrace was a very pleasant space, even though it is not possible to stand in the terrace area because the ceiling is very low, the terrace gives an air of independence being in the same room, each bed has its space to recharge the cell phone and has an independent lamp. our room had an elegant glass balcony with a beautiful view. the shower area is very elegant with a fairly modern and clean design. the television system was fun too, our room had a projector with a very good video quality I really liked my stay at the hotel and I hope to stay there again soon

Visited Unwind Hotel for a two night stay and had a perfect experience. Warm and friendly staff couldn’t do enough to assist us during our stay. Room was very comfortable and well decorated and the location couldn’t be better. Enjoyed the “afternoon tea” style breakfast and throughly took advantage of the free wine hour in the hotel bar. We were very touched with the extra care given to us to celebrate our special occasion. Thanks for a great stay and we will be back for sure!

Beautifully restored boutique hotel in an absolutely perfect location for exploring Otaru. The service is kind and thoughtful - it was my birthday and they helped my husband had arranged for the room to be decorated, an amazing six course menu in the Ball (with my favourite songs playing) champagne at the bar and a cake to be sent up after dinner. They offer you super comfy pyjamas at check in along with a delicious ginger tea. There is also a free wine hour with local Hokkaido wines on offer. We just fell in love with the Unwind Hotel and would 100% recommend it.

Great location, Unique and definitely it is one of its kind to provide that unique experience. Room is as usual, small. Private attached toilet & bath are seperated. Breakfast is English high tea style, no refill, not buffet. High tech equipment in room. Car park is limited (only 5 lots) and expensive too. Park at the opposite public car park is needed. ... finally the best part of the stay should be the FREE flow of wine during happy hour. DO NOT MISS IT.

Weather was perfect! Hotel staff very courteous. Free wine for house guests between 5&7pm. Walking distance to the Canal and train station. Will stay again if ever am back to Otaru. Only rooms are very small, but that is Japan for you!

Just brilliant. A very chic boutique hotel in the center of Otaru, just one block away from the canal. Access to upper floors is by a rather grand staircase (lift also available). We had a third floor corner room, spacious (in Japanese terms) with two windows and separate bathroom and WC. The bathroom contains both a shower and a bath. Breakfast was served in the style of English high tea (with food on tiered plates). This looked spectacular and was quick and efficient. Hotel staff were very helpful, assisting us in parking our car nearby, and also finding the location of an antique shop we wanted to visit. We were invited for 5-6:30pm complimentary drinks (local Hokkaido wines) in the hotel bar. The whole experience was unforgettable. We will definitely stay here again if we visit Otaru again.

Unwind room lights are bright, space was ok. Shower, wc and wash basin compartmentalised. Everything in the room looks relatively new and has a clean feeling. However the big downer was that the 2 twin superior beds for 3 adults meant that 1 bed is too small for 2, even tho we are rather small sized. Couldn't sleep properly. On checking their website, found that their largest bed is twin superior so please take note: this isn’t big enough for 2 adults. Free drinks including wine 1700 to 1830. Breakfast was scones, bread and dessert prettily served on a 3 layered cake stand. Adequate for me. Breakfast room is bright and cheerful with plenty of glass looking into garden. 5 minutes’ walk to Otaru Canal

This was our first time staying in Otaru Unwind. Unwind offered us something unique and different from the typical Japanese commercial hotel stays like Dormy Inn ect. • Room The interior finishes were modern-chic/ classical and colours were well put together. The bathroom was the typical pre-fab Japanese hotel units, but with marble wall finish, which I liked. We stayed in a standard double room, which was a little too small. There was literally no space to walk when 2 suitcases were opened at the same time. There was a 'Handy' mobile available for free use. There was also a projector with Apple Airplay, which is a welcome addition. There is complimentary coffee, tea and water in the refrigerator. • Common Areas There was a restaurant and bar on the ground floor. Compliments for the interior design. There are very good laundry facilities on our floor. They also had parking spaces out side the back of the hotel, however the spaces seem limited. Luckily there were not many guests during our stay. • Breakfast Breakfast was presented in a 'high tea' style. There was a salad, scone, mini-sandwich etc. Juice, Coffee, Tea, milk were all available. All the glassware were all Kinto Brand, which is a favourite of mine. • Staff The staff were all very friendly, professional and spoke English. • Location Great location, walkable to all the must-see central areas of Otaru.

The hotel has a different feel from many other hotels we stayed in. Room is compact but has a warm modern feel. There is a projection "tv" but we did not figure out how to use it. Breakfast is also different from many other buffet breakfast. Free wine is provided around 5pm. It was good opportunity for us to taste some local wines. If you drive to the hotel, please do not park at the private parking next to the hotel as it has no cap on parking charges. The hotel will recommend other nearby parking that has a cap.
