This hotel is great! clean and spacious room compare to standard Japanese room size at the same price range. The room rate is reasonable, strategic location 5 minutes from Otaru station and also 5 minutes walking distance to Otaru canel. Lawson sotre just opposite the hotel very convenient! We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Hokkaido.

This hotel is centrally located and is in amongst many reasonably priced sushi restaurants. There are western fat food options close by a well. Rooms are the similar sized to other 3 to 4 star japanese hotels. Toiletries provided were good quality - Shisedo.

Otaru is notorious for expensive hotels so most tourists would stay in Sapporo and commute to Otaru for a day trip. However, got a good deal from a hotel booking agent so decided to try out this hotel. I must say this is a good hotel in terms of quality of room. The room was small but comfortable with a...

It is just like any other hotels in Japan. Clean. Good Service. Fast Check-in. There is a lane with shops & cafes just opposite the hotel, so it is quite convenient. Except that the walk to the Otaru Canal is longer compared to Vibrant Hotel.

Location of this hotel is quite near to Otaru canal and shopping areas around there. The room here is in a good size , not too small as some other hotels in Japan. The services are very good as many at the reception counters can speak English well.

We only stayed at the Authent Hotel Otaru for 1 night in July. The service is excellent and the room was clean and standard size for Japanese hotels. 1 night would be around 10,000 to 15,000YEN for per person including breakfast depends on the season. Must do in this hotel is to have a breakfast at 11th floor. You will...

Stayed for one night only but quite liked this hotel. Short walk to anywhere. Bed was super comfortable. Concierge staff was helpful. Arrived early and was give the room so really appreciated that. Asked about the bath but hotel staff did not really promote it so we gave that a miss.

The hotel was in a great location, staff friendly and helpful, The key and famous restaurants were within walking distance. Rooms were clean and comfortable, bathrooms excellent. You have to pay for parking your car in the public lot next door but it is just a minute's walking distance. A great choice

Location is in the middle to everywhere. 5-7min walking to Otaru Station. Similar distance to Otaru Canal. Cafes and convenience stores (Lawson and another) nearby. Backdoor is facing Miyako-dori roofed pedestrian walkway going towards Chuo-dori (really near the station). Front door is facing another roofed walkway with several sushi restaurants. Service is decent, nothing special. We occupied a 3-pax room...

Stayed here for 1 night. Location was pretty good, just a few minutes walk to the Grand Canal. Service staff were attentive. It was very reasonable for the price we paid. No comments on the restaurants as we did not eat there.
