This was my favorite hotel of all the places we stayed in Japan. Even though we stayed in a Western room, we still experienced all of the warm and traditional Japanese hospitality we had heard so much about. From our arrival, through our departure, the staff at the hotel is incredibly kind and helpful. We absolutely enjoyed an hour in... More

The location is super good for sight seeing. Staffs are kind and very helping even though their English skill is a bit limitted. Room is not as big as i expected and the dinner was not very satisfactory... Onsen is very good and convenient.

We drove from Asahikawa for a midweek stay at Otaru Furukawa. We were given our own parking space which was really helpful for our stay. We booked a Japanese style room via booking.com and communicated with them via the website portal quite easily prior to our stay. It turned out that our window looked out to the popular Otaru canal.... More

Stayed here one night in one of the two special rooms on the top floor. Room was very large and the private onsen bath was beautiful. Room overlooked the canal and had a wonderful panoramic view. This hotel is well located and very beautiful in side. It is also very relaxing and peaceful. Dinner was wonderful and breakfast also very... More

Now, I am not one of those who likes boutique hotels, that said this one really impressed me with their extremely friendly staffs who speaks proper English! This was the best stay I had had on the trip. The room was huge by Japanese standard and so was the bath and shower area. Their onsen is nothing fantastic but it... More

This is a little hotel just opposite the canal. In general the room was clean, but it was the typical Japanese hotel room size (I stayed in a single room). But my friends had the twin room which they were happy with the size. The staff here were extremely helpful, always around and very attentive. There is a nice little... More

If I ever travel to Otaru again, I will stay at this place again. 1) Location location location It is conveniently located, cross the street from the canal, the port, shops and many restaurants. You can easily walk to the sushi street from here, as well as a restaurant corner featuring Hokkaido food. 2) Nice onsen When booking Furukawa, I... More

I had to remove one point from an otherwise perfect score of this place because it was rather inconvenient without wifi in the room - especially when you need to check the weather and plan for the next day. Having said that, all else was above expectations. We couldn't understand why this hotel would demand such high ratings, even for... More

The hotel is about 15 min walk from the train station, the onsen is decent size.the lounge is very cosy. The breakfast is not great in the hotel I stayed in japan, but can see the canal from the resturant.

Loved the ambience and the traditional elements inside and outside the property. During special festivals such as children's day, unique decor is hanged outside. When you walk into the hotel, you will be immediately greeted by friendly staff. If it happens to rain, the staff will keep your umbrella for you, and you have the option to use their rental...
