The Best Hotel to Stay in Otaru”

Always stay here when I come to Otaru. Although it's far from the station and the street, it's really attractive to see the canal and the warehouse from the window. Especially, the hotel itself is like one of the tourist attractions, well incorporating the antique feeling that goes well with the atmosphere of the canal and the unique atmosphere of Otaru. The kindness and professionalism of the staff are also very good. The coffee at the cafe on the first floor is also delicious.

Spacious and comfortable ”

One of the best hotel in Otaru with good location. Took the twins and the room is so spacious. Have no issues placing 1 large, medium and small luggage. We had a good rest after a long drive. The hotel has the most comfortable bed and pillow ever! Highly recommended.

Hotel room is clean and tidy, staff is professional, helpful and polite. Facilities are nice! Onsen perfect!! One reminder: luggage kept only til 2pm which is a little bit inconvenient.

Thank you for staying with us. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Otaru. Regarding the luggage storage after check-out until 14:00, it is to avoid waiting for the luggage to be returned by avoiding the check-in time. If you have another chance, please come to Otaru. HOTEL SONIA OTARU Reception

Great Location”

Along side the river. Very convenient location. Otaru is a small town, so almost everything is within walking distance. Good Onsen on top floor. Clean. Rooms a little small. But for 1 or 2 nights, it works.
