Hotel about 5 minutes walk from Sapporo Station. Close to underground shopping arcade and clock tower. Friendly, polite reception. Has laundry service. Room is clean but small for two people. Considering the rate,value for money.

Location: if nice weather, proximity to JR Sapporo is good. But under snowy conditions, lugging baggage is a hassle. Service: typical Japanese courtesy, so stellar service. Rooms: typical Japanese tiny, but I am used to it already as a frequent traveler to Japan. What really lowered my satisfaction was the fact that the pillows smelled of body odor. Lastly, go...

Good centrally located hotel in Sapporo, ideal for business travel, couples or singles. Probably not ideal for families as they don't have large family rooms. Great beds and pillows, clean and well maintained rooms. Friendly service.
