    Better than expected hotel.
    Book 2 rooms for 5 adults. Upon check-in the hotel have already arrange 3 beds for my children. Cleanliness of the room was good. Location of the hotel is excellent. They even have a spa on the top floor. This TV programme includes CNN. The only downside is the parking cost ¥1200. Fortunately hotels. Com give me the best rate when I was booking the hotel.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Amazing hotel. good service and newly renovated clean facility right in front of the canal. hotel stuff are full of hospitality and flexible. As examples, they have list of restaurant open in New Years holidays with their own opinion and comments. And they managed to find a taxi in early morning even though it was fully booked. Also they find a bus schedule for me to go to ski resorts with several options. Every service they provide are highly skilled professional combined with their local knowledge and experience in service industry, and their own reliable opinion. I will stay there again if I go back to Otaru.
