We stayed here for one night in early April 2015. The reception staff were friendly, and the room was clean. The bathroom was bigger than many other budget Japanese hotels I have stayed in. The room did not have a view, however as it was blocked by a neighboring high-rise. Breakfast was included in the price I paid, and it... More

Thank you very much for staying with us. We are sorry that we could not make you satisfied with breakfast. The restaurant opens at night as a pub exactly like you mentioned, and we can not help with lighting. However, we definitely consider about it, keep menus for dinner back and retrain all staff. Also, we greatly appreciate your compliment... More

The hotel is located about 5-minutes walk from the JR-Sapporo station. You can walk easily with your luggage bags on the street level, instead of going through the underground sheltered mall level (exit to the hotel is by stairs!). Check-in was fast and smooth, and the staff spoke good English. They were very helpful. Check-out was also very fast, using... More

Helpful staffs with many amenities provided in the room and the hotel itself. Was staying in Hollywood Twin room, very spacious and comfortable, though bathroom space is sacrificed for the room space... Price wise, I would classify this hotel as cheaply affordable for what it offers and its location. While its location is not exactly close to any of subway... More

This hotel is in a great location right in the middle of downtown Sapporo. It's a no-nonsense business hotel, with characteristic Japanese service. Rooms are small but comfortable. I would stay here again in the future.

Richmond feels like an up-market business hotel -- clean, but faceless and minimal, with rooms a little bigger than similar chains such as Toyoko Inn or Super Hotel. Of course, it's also slightly more expensive (especially during the Snow Festival period). You can open two big suitcases on the floor at the same time, but there'll be little space for... More

Using the Google map, it's very easy to find the hotel when dropped off at JR station. Seemed the Japanese like to stay at low floors, we were arranged at the second top floor, with a nice view to the south direction of the Sapporo city. In the evening we walked to the city downtown area in about 10 minutes.... More

Located just within two minutes walk from two subway exits of Sapporo train Station. Plenty of convenience stores and restaurants within easy reach. It is also possible to walk to Sapporo Tower, Tanuki Koji and Nijo market. Clean and flawless rooms. Rooms are small like any other Japanese hotel rooms within its class but adequate.

This hotel is closely located to the Sapporo JR station (about a 5-10 min) walk, and even closer to the subway, but not that centrally located to the city. It is a typical Japanese hotel with the basic amenities. The included breakfast was a bit lackluster to my preference; it was a set platter (either Japanese or Western style) with... More
