"We arrived at the hotel and quite impressed with the room's decoration. The room is clean, as it is normally do in japan, but more spacious. The public bath was more that we expected. The close proximity to the JR station let us retired our luggage and save our times running around to find its location. Though it's not located next to the canal like many other hotels in Otaru, I still found it a reasonable walking time to other attractions. But for me, its location next to JR station was my first priority as we arrived by train. If you like to soak yourself after a long trip, its public bath can serve you very well with 2 indoor baths and 2 semi-outdoor baths. There are also free washing machines, but you still have to pay for the dryer. The price was reasonable, but probably it was not in high season for our visit and there was some kind of promotion."

"The hotel is about 10 min walk from Otaru Station and less than 5 min walk to the famous Otaru Canal. There are a lot of restaurants and shops around. Hotel is fairly new, breakfast choices were average with a selection of western and Japanese style. The public bath facilities was helpful after a long day walk. You can enjoy a special blend ginger in the evening especially cater for those who have taken the bath. We booked a Tatami style room, room size was consider good in Japan. Overall, it was a good experience. "

"Affordable price for couple if you choose one room for two person which has private bathroom, small double bed and non-smoking room. Got laundry downstairs only 200¥ and free dryer. Got heater, water heater and refrigerator in the room also which is so convenient. The hotel location is not so far from the otaru station. But u will get difficulty if u need to pull the luggage along with the snow to arrive at the hotel. We are so tired though. But i think its okay. Near to otaru canal and others. Recommended!!!"

"I travel with my parents and stay at Grand Park Otaru Hotel for 1 night, even the hotel is not close to Otaru like many other hotel but location of the hotel is good cos has a walk way from Otaruchikko JR station and also the hotel is stand in the middle of two shopping malls which make it full of restaurant and outlet shop. You can always go to Otaru buy take JR train for two station long. The rooms are bigger than normal hotel room size in Japan and full of accommodation in the room make it a comfortable place to stay. All the staff are very friendly, I have an issue with a car rental company and ask one staff to help turn out he willing to help me through the end and also recommend me about the route for me to drive and places to go and travel.

"This is my second time I have been visited Japan since 7 years. Otaru is always in my top list of the city where I would like to spend overnight here. For the accommodation, Hotel Sonia Otaru is well-designed for interior and exterior architecture in european concepts. The room is not too small for 2-3 persons or family members to fit in. Also, Onsen where is located on the 7th floor facing with stunning view of Otaru Canal can help you feel relaxed from exploring around the city all day long. More importantly, it is quite easy to find food and drink nearby the hotel with 3-10 minute walk. However, the check-in time of this hotel is at 3 p.m., so you can drop your lugguages with the front desk and go for a walk if you arrive early. Personally, I will be back to visit this city and will definitely stay here again soon."

"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 "

"nord otaru located at the walking distance from ontaru railway station. just walk straight from the station front for few minutes. you will get a pleasant and warm welcome feeling when you arrive ontaru by train and walk to the nord otaru hotel because of the good hotels and shops along the way with an exiting view of the canal in front of the hotel and the sight end of mountain scenery. in the morning i walked to the canal to fill my drinking bottle with the natural water supply at the tourist view point and enjoy the fresh air of park along the canal. when sun started too warm, i then walked further to the sushi road nearby where the colorful sushi were selectable in various pricing and styles. the shopping street in the same area of nord hotel make the day more joyful by the sound from music box everywhere ...all of these are just something not more than 10minutes walk from the..nord ontaru hotel.........
