I continued to stay here and further acquaintance improved my view of it. The hotel breakfast was excellent and good value. The front desk staff were very helpful. You can open your window a bit. You get free milk in the afternoon.

Japanese low-budget are generally better than the equivalent elsewhere. I arrived in Otaru a 4:30 am by ferry and needed a sleep. I was charged an extra day to get in before 15:30. Changed the overall value.
No wireless.

Very close to the JR station but relatively further from the downtown (which is actually a good thing so we didn't need to carry our luggage too far from JR station). We got a semi-double room for 2 people which was really small but managable for one night. Same as most other Japanese hotels/Inns, they have everything: shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, slippers etc. You can pick up free milk (which was VERY GOOD and found out it was Hokkaido's famous brand) everyday after 3pm before they are all gone. Remember to book through internet as there is an extra discount!! Staff don't really speak English, as expected.
