              8.8

              Great location and price. Comfortable bed.

              The receptionist did not notice that my package included breakfast. When I returned and asked him to confirm, he looked suspicious and confused. He eventually gave me the breakfast coupons, but did not apologize. My impression is that most Japanese are very polite, but I didn't feel respected in this case.

            • Couple
              8.0

              Great location and good value. It was great that we could leave our bags at the hotel until our departure time.

              Rooms are a bit small, but expected.

              3.8

              location

              not clean, toilet smells, a lot of smoke in corridor. Price is higher than the better and newer hotel around the same location. Not value for money

            • Family with children
              5.4

              Hotel has a guest area that allows guest to heat up food and have a quick meal. Rest area allows guest who has already checked out to do a bit of last minute packing or while waiting to head for airport.

              I wish they can improve the cleanlines of the room and amenities. Having said that, Bedding and toilets are fine.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Good location, just cross the street from the JR Station. Reasonable price

              Small room, the bathroom is even smaller. No wifi available.

            • Single
              7.8

              The hotel was clean and service good. The optional breakfast was well worth the money, very good compared to most budget hotels.

              10.0

              The hotel was perfect. Just in front of the station, impossible to lost the way. The bedroom for one was fine, the bed is very good, the bath has all what you need and clean. For the price, I wouldn't change to other place. One of the receptionist speak perfect English. ----- El hotel es bueno, exactamente frente a la estación, imposible perderse. La pieza para uno era muy buena, con todo lo necesario, cama cómoda y el baño completamente equipado y limpio. En la recepción uno de los encargados habla muy buen inglés, así que la comunicación fue sencilla.

              When I arrive the internet has a problem to surf, I went to the reception, ask what it happen. 5 minutes later they reset the configuration and all goes well. ----- Al principio el Internet no permitía navegar por Internet, bajé a preguntar a la recepción. Ahí resetearon el servicio y todo anduvo de maravillas.

              Walking distance from train station and The Morrning Market

              Not very clear about direction to Mt Hakodate We walked to the station to find that it was closed Would appreciate it if the hotel could have signs to inform guests about closure of nearby places of interest

              Good location near to Hakodate station, bus & tram station. Hotel room also clean & confortable

            • Couple
              8.2

              it's an ordinary hotel, that's simple but value for money and fulfill your needs.

            • Single
              9.2

              The hotel was extremely conveniently situated opposite the main JR train station, and at the hub for tram and buses. Price was very good value for money. My room did not include breakfast, but this was charged at JPY530 which was extremely good considering the range of choices from Japanese to European style breakfast, freshness and quantities. Also, there was free wifi in the room which was not mentioned on the website.

              Some of the common areas could do with some updating but this certainly did not detract from the stay. Room was OK sized by Japanese standards.

              Bed/ mattress has broken springs, not comfortable.

            • Single
              7.4

              friendly staff, excellent location right next to the station, reasonable price, good breakfast

              When checking in, the staff tried to tell me it was not possible to have breakfast (which was not true)

            • Family with children
              6.6

              Hotel is located right opposite to Hakodate JR station. (about 5 mins walk) The bus stop and the street cars stop are also easily reachable. There is also a ramen shop(Open untill 12.30 a.m.) and the 24-hour convenient store next to the hotel.

              Staff's English communication skills is limited.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              The team of counter staff is very friendly and helpful in providing information. The team in the cafeteria is very polite and super efficient. The room has been very well-kept. The location is extremely convenient for tourists traveling by train with huge pieces of luggage. It is also surrounded by good eateries and shopping malls. The Smiley Face logo of the hotel helps to cheer travelers after a long and exhausting ride. We smiled when we saw the building at the JR Station and we left Hakodate with a broader smile after being well taken care of by Smile Hotel Hakodate. Smile Hotel Hakodate is definitely the one and only hotel I recommend to friends and family who wishes to visit Hakdate. Thank you Smile Hotel for making our stay a very comfortable and memorable one.
