2023 Costs

Twin-room - $4,485 pp; Double-room - $4,565 pp; Single-room - $5,005 pp.

 

La Vista Furano Hotel (LVF) / Dormy Inn Premium Otaru (DIO) Packages (NEW option for 2023):

Twin-room - $4,205 pp; Double-room - $4,145 pp; Single-room - $4,345 pp.

 

Pricing Notes - Cost is in $USD per person, twin-share and is based on a minimum of 4 people in the group. If there are less than 4 people, then if we can run the session, then the price will be higher).

GPO/SFP – There are a limited supply of double rooms at the SFP hotel. There are 4 double rooms per floor (corner rooms) and they sell out quickly. We cannot guarantee double rooms for couples at the SFP. If one is not available, then you will have to take a twin room with the beds pushed close together (not fully together as there is an immovable nightstand between the two beds). Double rooms (33m2) are 5m2 larger and therefore a higher price then twin-rooms (28m2).

LVF/DIO – The double, twin and single rooms at the LVF are all the same size, 18m2. They are small rooms by Western standards. For our twin-rates at the LVF, guests staying in a twin-room will receive a free upgrade to a single room at no additional cost. The double rooms rates will feature a double bed in a regular-sized room at the LVF and are priced lower than the twin-share rate. The DIO double and single rooms are 15m2 and the twin rooms are 21m2. Please also note that we have only inspected (but not stayed at) the La Vista Hotel and we have not visited the Dormy Inn Premium Otaru before. We are using that hotel sight unseen therefore.
