We stayed here one night while exploring Hakodate recently. This hotel appears to be a popular site for weddings, with a shop full of ornate dresses in all colors in the lobby complex and a wedding chapel on site. Our room in the new building was large enough to include two oversize twin beds and a generous seating area and it had an excellent view towards the harbor, just a block away. The room was clean and quiet and about a 10 minute walk from the JR train station. To get to our room we had to hike about 100 yards down a wide hallway that connects the older and newer buildings. In that hallway is a bar/cafe that was quite smokey during open hours, a bit of a turnoff. Room decor is indeed dated but furniture is perfectly acceptable. The hotel is in the lower section of town, about 5 minutes from a brewery/restaurant and 10 minutes from the warehouse district. The attractions in the uphill section of town are a 20 minutes walk away.
