Food at sister hotel about 4 min walk away was really delicious n beautifully presented. However the staff was not very friendly at kotori. We waited for 25 mins for shuttle bus despite giving them early notice n the shuttle from ruokan to bus stop pickup was only 5 mins away. There was also no smile from the staff as compared to the sister hotel. Nevertheless, it is gd value for money. Kotori waa v clean n quiet for a gd night stay.
