    Good 6.0
    No room service
    We stayed two nights. They don’t provide room service except you pay an additional fee. There is only one elevator in the side wings. We had to wait many times.

    Would stay again!
    Sonia was clean and newly renovated. Also conveniently located across the canal. Our room had a nice view of the canal and otaru brewery. The staff were very courteous and seemed to serve. Would stay again. Recommend at least 2 nights in otaru. Try the beer, ice cream, and dried squid (made hot before 3pm). Go to otaru orgel and ride a rickshaw. The town closes down at 6pm
