2/5 Poor

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very dated hotel with smokers near the canal.
I booked this Hotel at the last minute as I needed to stay an extra night in Otaru due to weather. The hotel is extremely worn and dated. The lobby, hallways and bar have a foul smell. I don’t know if they have a dead animal in the heating system or use string cleaning products but it was gross. The space around the front desk smelled like smoke. The front desk staff said that wasn’t possible as it’s a non smoking hotel and maybe it was coming from the outside. My room was incredibly dated, the bed was uncomfortable and the linens terrible! I appreciated the pajamas and the spaciousness of the room but that’s it. For literally 20 dollars more I stayed at a much nicer hotel around the corner. The bar upstairs doesn’t open until later in the evening. In terms of service, The bartender was the nicest person I met at the hotel. The sample appetizer and drink was nice albeit very small. When I was finally enjoying the hotel and having a cocktail at the bar, a man came in lit a cigarette and began to smoke at the bar. It was disgusting! The entire room smelled of smoke. I along with other guests were grossed out. I would have stayed to have another drink but I couldn’t breathe.
