Our travels to Sapporo was booked at the last moment; so naturally the hotels near Sapporo costs three times as much as this location. So this location wasn’t convenient; but we enjoyed this hotel very much and is worth the inconvenience I believe.
We had difficulty communicating with the front desk but they do have a niffty gadget that spits out a verbal translation. Worked well.
We couldn’t decide whether to take the bus or train to get here. Mistakes were made. Don’t take the bus. Take the train to Tomakomai station and take a quick cab ride to the hotel. The cab will cost about yen500 or 600.
There’s a large department/drug store across the street, great for picking up snacks and drinks. Lawsons is next door.
The onsen was very good. Only one bath. A bit small but ok.
The hotel has lovely modern styling. New and clean.
The best for last. As others have mentioned, the breakfast was fantastic. Upscale, elegant, delicate. Very fine. For two mornings, the choices were very different. The only problem is all orders must be in by 8:45am. Kinda too early for some. But really worth getting up early for. And the view from the 11th floor was great. Breakfast is included in the room fees.More
