We stayed here at the end of our trip because we wanted something special to end with. It did not disappoint. Hidden behind an unimposing facade, the interior transports you to another place, far away from the semi-industrial surrounds outside. Accommodation and dining packages are somewhat expensive, but we felt that it was reasonable value for money. You can grab... More

I stayed at Kuramure a few weeks ago with my mother. I was expecting it to be good for A$500/night and based on the limited reviews I had read. But we arrived and were just godsmacked at how lovely it was. Gorgeous setting wedged into a mountain over a stream, incredible architecture that oriented towards/perfectly framed the views, elegant modernist... More

We spent a night here after taking a day trip in Otaru, the experience at Kuramure was nothing short of amazing. We reached the hotel at around 4pm via a pickup from a JR station. We were greeted by the friendly staffs, who ushered us into the reception area. I was hoping to take a walk to enjoy the industrial... More

Pros: stylish interior, excellent food, warm service, peaceful vibe, free drinks, audio room with vinyl. Cons: service at restaurant can be a bit more attentive and detail-oriented; garden can use more maintenance. Stayed for 1 night in May. In short this is a very well-designed hotel with warm service and great amenities. It has a thoughtful layout and interior, a... More

I have visited Japan and Onsen several times, but this hotel(Onsen) is my best hotel ever. The overall atmospere of this place is very quiet and relaxing. Room condition was perfect including bedding. It has a little bit small but nice public bath.(Luckily, I could use it alone..) The kaiseki cuisine was also good. All inclusive bar was also very...

Stayed for 1 night in late December. Extremely satisfied with the stay. Room is spacious and cosy with Japanese decor. Free in room mini bar is good with many cans of Sapporo beer and 2 cans of sparkling wine. Loved the onsen. And the food! The kaseiki dinner is delicious and there are so many courses.

Quite an excellent mixture of authentic Japanese "onsen" - hotspring experience and improved / modern services, including all inclusive beverage offer and "bed" room. It has quite a nice public bath which has a nice view of the yard/river/hill. Private bath is small in the room which I didn't use. Foods are served in a dedicated dinig room where service... More

I read different reviews on this place but decided to give it a try. Otaru is a 30mins+ train ride from Sapporo and it is very coastal and more romantic place of hokkaido.
