Otaru Green Hotel - Otaru - Bedroom

7.4 Good (4,178 reviews)
C$ 54+
Overview Reviews

7.0 Good
Pros: Actual rooms were clean Wasn't noisy Beds were comfy Very cheap price
Cons: Dirty and smelt like mold in some areas Communal area was cold and very closed in, no windows Lots of narrow stairs to carry luggage up
7.0 Good
Pros: Close to Otaru station, very clean & comfortable bathroom (i think they just renovated the bathroom). Free coffee was great !
Cons: I think it's a renovated hotel, but unfortunately they didn't renovate (or may be haven't renovated yet) all facilities. I could smell the old building odors and there was stain on the carpet's room :(
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location near Otaru station. Rooms are narrow, but for the price it costs they are great!
Cons: Narrow rooms, but of course much better than the typical hostel bunk beds! Only one shower in my floor, so it can get a bit busy.
7.0 Good
Pros: They are trying to be eco-friendly. It is a good start. They still change sheets/towels after every day, which is unnecessary. They also give out free single use product samples, but only to ladies. So not eco-friendly and also sexist. hmm.. Most staff were pleasant.
Cons: On employee was really rude. We had to leave early on the last day, just 15 minutes before the breakfast buffet started. The food was set out, and I made a bowl. The kitchen staff ran out and shouted, demanding I stop eating because it was a "rule". She shouted at us like we were children and tried to take the food from me. Almost all food contained animal products, so some of our group basically couldn't eat breakfast.
1.0 Poor
Pros: The bed was clean. The cleaning staff did their best given the whole place stank. The lone young female we saw on front reception was polite and helpful. They should employ more like her.
Cons: The whole place stank. The male staff on front desk were rude and unhelpful even refusing to give my wife the key to our room because it was booked in my name - she was registered for the room as well (including their having her passport details), but she had to wait for me to get back before she could go up to our room. We stayed in 8 different hotels on our trip and this was the only place we had a problem. The younger male on reception was the rudest person we encountered in Japan. Also, there was only one lift; this caused issues.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Location is near train station
Cons: Staff can’t speak English at all and even without any smile to get you feel hospitality that changed my impression to Japanese. Wont come back again.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice spa, clean and spacious rooms, next to the small ski resort.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Out side hot spring is so nice!

10.0 Excellent

Cons: The unsecured Free wifi doesn’t work at room.
7.9 Good
Pros: Staffs are reasonably professional. They acted somewhat after we complained about the kids running above our suite.
Cons: We thought it's worth to pay top dollar (I mean $750/night is not cheap by any standard) for close enough ski hotel. All went well until the loud kids were running and shouting between private osen rooms. Then it's the disappointing dinner menu. It was nowhere near the $300-500/night osen standard. I get the extra dollar for private view, but didn't I just say it was ruined already?
8.0 Excellent

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Just 5 minutes away from ski resort & hotel offered free shuttle bus service to & from the resort. There was also free onsen onsite.
Cons: Their main restaurant required reservation - we didnt know this on our first night & we had to wait for an hour before we could be seated. Hotel has limited number of dining places & is quite far from other reataurants.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We had great stay!!! Will come back!!
