We ordered the room with super sized bed. The size of bed is a king size or larger, and mattress is the most comfy one in all the hotel we stayed in Japan. Top floor onsen got a very good city view. The hotel is closeby the red warehouses and walking distance to the morning market and train station. hotel... More

You have to be very patient if you want to have breakfast here because of its incredibly long line and bad service at the restaurant.

La Vista's advantage is its location (close to Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse...about a five-minute walk) and the Hakodate Bay. It is about 10-15 minutes from the morning market. Our room on the ninth floor had a nice view of the bay and Mount Hakodate; we saw the cable cars active quite early. The room was rather small but the large... More

Hakodate attractions are in walking distance from this hotel. The hotel design is very nice. There is window in room that you can see great view of Hakodate. The breakfast is more than expectation and is really really great. The food is fresh. The chinese restaurant in the hotel is good and price is reasonable. Staffs are very helpful and... More

The hotel is located right in the centre of town, with a large car park adjoining the hotel. The lobby is large, with helpful staff (who speak English). The rooms, as is the norm in Japan, are on the small side, but neat and clean. I couldn't find any English language channels on the in-house TV though. Breakfast was excellent,... More

La Vista is a great base to spend a weekend in Hakodate and use it as a base to visit the South of Hokkaido island. Rooms are beatiful, and japanese and full of nice details, such as all the tools to brew yourself coffee. But perhaps the best features are the great onsen at the top floor where you can... More

Arrived in Hakodate under heavy snow, across the lobby there are 3 good restaurants, spend 300m walks then there is red bricks souvenirs mall shops. 500m the morning market where my kids was happy fishing the live squids and eats them right on the spot. Onsen is great. Unwind after all day activities just top it up. No wifi in... More

The hotel is absolutely amazing, be it the decor, room, onsen and buffet breakfast. I really liked how the hotel provides free ice-cream bars for residents to enjoy after onsen. Breakfast buffet is one of the nicest I have tried around Hokkaido. Hakodate is quite small so a one-night stop over at this hotel is perfect. All night parking costs... More

I was expecting a typical japanese business hotel; but la vista is not one of them. Panoramic view of hakodate from the rooftop onsen is still so beautiful that I definitely recommend. And don't forget to have some beer after onsen. It's worth it. Also, don't miss the breakfast!
