Lonely Planet review
A stylish renovation of a historic Otaru bank resulted in this justifiably 'vibrant hotel', which is located across the road from the main post office. The lobby is very attractive with period-piece furniture, including wrought-iron tables. For a memorable night's stay, shell out a bit of extra cash and bed down in the old bank vault!
