“Decent hotel”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

As part of our seven-day trip in Hokkaido, we had an overnight stay at Hakodate. Check-in was smooth and we went up to our hotel quickly. The entire complex is divided into several sections though, so be wary of high lift you're taking we they may not go up to your desired floor.

We had two rooms - one for my mother and sisters and one for my father and I. They were supposed to set up the mattresses in our rooms before we entered it, but this was not apparent in mine. The pillows and bed sheets were also not in the cupboards. We had to call the front desk to help with this. Service was very good in the sense that the suited man, although tired, tried is best to set up the room for us.

There are two onsens - one on the first floor and the other on the seventh. We were told we could only use the first floor onsen. The interior was somewhat run-down, but it was a public bathroom so there's not much to expect. There's an indoor bath and an outdoor bath, the latter containing a large cold pool for contrast. It was relaxing but somewhat stuffy, so we only took a few minutes in the baths before we headed for the night. This in turn improved sleep quality drastically.

Breakfast was delicious, although I only have a vague memory of how it tasted as almost all the hotels we stayed at had identical menus. Wi-Fi was available in the lobby for free and the staff spoke, albeit limited, English to get us along.

It does seem to have some flaws, and may not be the best hotel out there on terms of quality, but all in all, it's a good hotel.
