We booked the jap/western room which was very spacious and had a good view of the bay. Helpful staff but they spoke little English which made communication a little difficult Good location near the red brick warehouses and the airport bus stops nearby

It is located just next to the Kanemori red brick buildings. Easy walk to restaurants and beer hall. Rooms are nice and spacious. We had western beds and my daughter's extra bed was a tatami bed. No complains except that the hotel requests that you to setup the extra bed yourself. The bed will be kept by housekeeping staff in... More

The view of the mountain, bay, warehouses and tram is very nice. Churches and historic buildings as well as fish market and restaurants are within walking distance. The design of the room is unusual and charming....a walk up bedroom and living room area, with a low, window-length desk for enjoying the view. The room has a plastic tatami-like floor--would be...

Well located where some of the best tourists' attractions are found. If you get rooms facing the front of building, on higher floors, then you are assured of a fantastic view of Mt Hakodate in the day and also at night. You also get a good of the Motomachi Area. A beautiful neighbour of old churches, solid temples and beautiful... More

The hotel was well-located right next to a big shopping facilities, which I believe were restored from some old buildings. The room was comfy with a Japanese setting i.e. a tatami floor. The buffet breakfast was excellent in terms of quality and variety. But maybe because it was the Japanese Golden week holidays, the place was so crowded that there... More

The service of the hotel was great, with quick response to our request. The breakfast at this hotel was the best I ever had! Breakfast was in Japanese style buffet, with grille seafood, sashimi, cooked food, etc.... The range of food offered was great. There is an Onsen on the top floor of the hotel, overlooking the Hakodate hill, the... More

Chose La Vista because it was the #1 ranking Hakodate hotel on TA. Had a feeling we made a wrong choice when we entered our room, and this was confirmed when we took the hot spring bath on the 13th floor later that night. Things that were not right: 1. Price - We were charged onsen hotel price but we... More

A very nice hotel resort in Hakodate Bay, with good location, you only take 5-8 minutes by walking from JR station. They provided free shuttle bus to JR station, only 2-3 minutes. You must try the buffet breakfast, we enjoyed the food with a lot of variety and good quality. Onsen facilities are also very good, and located at 13th... More

We stayed at this spa resort in Hakodate for a few night's recently. The hotel is located about 1km from JR Hakodate main terminal and takes about 12-15 minutes to reach on foot. There are a few restaurants located next door to the hotel, one serving kaiten sushi, a ramen bar, a curry house and one serving Japanese food. There... More
