La Vista is a large hotel conveniently located in Hakodate. We were able to walk to it from the JR station and it is close to some great shopping in a repurposed warehouse area. Also not far to walk to take the lift up the mountain. Room was standard but comfortable and clean. I especially enjoyed the onsen. Great breakfast...

modern and comfortable large hotel with spacious well-appointed rooms. passable rooftop hotspring with nice views, if a bit of a public swimming pool vibe. very long queue at checkout. located right next to the red-brick factory buildings. yunokawaonsen is a 20-min drive away.

Great location with shopping and dining within easy walking distance. Room was a little tired except for nice shower/bath. Service was uneven with some engaged staff but others that need some coaching. Friendly, professional help is the norm in Japan and something is a little lacking here. The breakfast buffet is crowded until about 9:30 am. Variety is on the...

We had a semi Japanese family room with 2 single bed, plus 2 tatami bed for a total of 4 persons. Reasonable size with views either facing harbour or Mt Hakodate. Buffet breakfast spread superb with wide selection of traditional Japanese cuisine. Hotel come with Onsen pool at roof tops with beautiful night view.

Sure it's a tower block, but it is still a nice hotel. Spacious reception all well organized. Lifts a bit slow. Quite unusual room, but everything present. Bathroom above average for Japan. Breakfast also good. Excellent location in the heart of the city centre.

Very very handy for the main tourist sights. As with many Japanese hotels, rooms are beige and small. Very little storage space if there for more than one night. Really good baths though. Comfortable, and great pyjamas!

You can't get any closer to the Hakodate Bay than staying at La Vista. This high-rise hotel is modern, clean, and within walking distance of most tourist sites and the JR Train Station. A room on the mountain side of the building gives you great views both day and night -- La Vista means "The View," and that's what you...

I visited in June 2016, which is summer season in Hokkaido. Weather is fantastic between 10-20 degree. Hotel lobby although not huge but is tastefully renovated. Would probably need to queue during checkin as this hotel is highly popular. Rate wise can be at a high side but do look out for promotion price available in various hotel search website....

The La Vista Hakodate Bay is a great place to stay for tourist, who wish to explore the harvor area of old Hakodate and can be reached from the Train Station in a relaxed 20 minute walk. Service and facilitiys are top notch, especial the spa with the onsen area. Only down point could be the breakfast arrangement which can...
