We stayed here for one night. It is budget wise considering of the location.
This hotel is located at the north side of Toyama station which is less crowded than the south side.
The staffs speak very little English but they are friendly and helpful. Our room was upgraded the executive room. It was a bit dated but spacious. Wifi is available in the room.
About 10 minutes walk to the Canal Park and you can find a Starbucks with the most beautiful view in the world (at least that what I was told).
They do not provide a big buffet breakfast but they have 4 sets of breakfast.

I would recommend this hotel and will stay here again.
Hope that they will have a bellboy at the entrance by then.

Love this hotel and it makes me love the place TOYAMA ! We stayed here for 3 nights and soon fell in love with this hotel. Staff are friendly, though they can't speak english well but still try all their utmost to help (salute to all the front staff, restaurant staff & also the carpark operators). We tried all the 4 breakfast sets (including the kids menu) and all of them were good & delicious. Bathroom is spacious & everything working well. Wifi at room & public area. Maybe more travellers like to stay at hotel in the south side of Toyama JR station which is more crowd, full of eating place and more economic hotel to choose. but we definitely recommend this hotel located at the opposite side of the station (but just within 2 mins walk and there is underground subway connecting everyway), because we think it's a newly developed area and thus the surroundings are more well-planned, beautiful and quiet with a beautiful canal park just 2 minutes walk from the hotel.

I stayed at Oarks Canal Park Hotel for a combination of business and tourism in July 2012 and recommend it for other travelers.

Pros: One block from train station (both JR line and local railroad to Unazuki Onsen) and bus depot. But it's far enough away from the train station that there is no sound from passing trains. There is a broad, treelined walking area immediately in front of the hotel and leading to the large, pretty, but rather sleepy Fugan Canal Park, about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. 10 minute walk to canal boat tours that (I'm told) are very popular in the spring for cherry blossom viewing. Rooms very clean and, though not exactly spacious, they're also not extremely tiny.

Cons: The staff, despite being extremely polite, speaks very little English. They can provide you with trains schedules and maps on request, but had difficulty explaining how to read them. No exercise facility or pool. If you need to work out, there's a public gym on the way to the Canal Park. Some street noise at night - mainly ambulances. There must be a hospital nearby.

Tips: If you are arriving via Toyama airport, the taxi fair is about US$50. Taking a local bus is considerably cheaper. If you need more groceries than are found at the 7-Eleven across the street, try The Market at the far end of the tunnel passing beneath the train station. If you're looking for a different kind of restaurant experience try Tenyone where the chefs cook tempura in front of you - http://www.tenyone.jp/

When I opened my room door in the morning, an English newspaper was there. I immediately decided that I will give it a rating of 5 in my review.

This hotel is located quite close to the train station, but it's on the other side of the tracks from Toyama's downtown, so some walking is required to access other shops and restaurants near the train station. It also means that the area near hotel is very quiet.

The hotel looks gorgeous from outside. It completely feels like a 5 star hotel except that there's no bellboy in the entrance. Inside the hotel everything looks stylish. most of the decorations are in warm color. It gives me a pleasant feeling. The hotel staff also offers good service. Without my request, they allowed me to pay when checking out. (Most Japanese hotels require you to make full payment when checking in, which confuses many first time foreign travelers.) Their restaurant has a graceful atmosphere, just like what you can expect in a high-end hotel. The breakfast is not luxury, but still satisfying.

Their room is not as astonishing as other aspects of this hotel, but it's quite comfortable and wide enough. The warm color theme also exist here. I've found a small bear doll sitting on my bed every evening as a welcome gift, and I got an English newspaper every day, as I mentioned earlier, without asking them to do so. Almost every hotel in Japan offers good service. But they usually don't care about who you are, as long as you are paying the money. This hotel proved that it cares and respects every guest, even if they are foreigners.

I would take what I mentioned above as granted if I was staying in a 5 star hotel. But this is actually a fairly priced 4 star hotel. I didn't spend too much money here, yet it gave my heart a warm feeling, a big contrast with the cool looking city outside. This is a hotel I would remember for a long time and will come back again.
