“Highly recommended... no frills and comfortable hotel in great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights at the Richmond Sapporo Ekimae with the excuse of the Sapporo Snow Festival... location is great, literally 3 minutes walking from JR station (we walked on the main street for 2 blocks and then made a left) and perfect to check out the Sapporo Snow Festival...

the restaurant on the premises is great as well, we tried it for dinner and all the items we had were really good, but on the negative side, it is not smoke-free... our room was though and no noise at all coming from the streets...

room is smallish (typical Japan business hotel) but quite efficient, it provides everything you may need during your stay, a small desk, tv, good bathroom and comfortable bed...

the staff at the Front Desk were really attentive and helped us in arranging transportation within Sapporo... walking distanced from the hotel there are many shops, restaurants, coffee shops, etc...

We particularily like the convenience of the hotel and overall I think it is value for money...

Room Tip: I would definitely choose a non-smoking room...

The room is clean, well equipment and free wifi. They provide two types of pillow (bean and memory foam) which made us had a good sleep. We visited during winter time. Air con is centralize system. Therefore, the air con could not adjust. Noon time it is relative hot in the room. The smell of smoke in the lift is quite strong. The best way to access hotel is exit 22 of subway line if you don't have big luggages due to there is only stairs up. Otherwise you should take exit 23 which has escalator. Overall we are happy to stay in this hotel.

I stayed for 9 nights in the Richmond Hotel. The location is excellent, right next to Sapporo station (thank-you to one of the previous reviews for the directions and for giving advice about taking the escalator near exit 23 near the Toho line). The service is quick, efficient and friendly. Hotel is excellent value and very clean and quiet. The reason I gave it 3/5 for the sleep quality is because the pillows are a little harder than what I'm used to so I did have some neckache for the first few nights but after that I got used to it and it was ok.
I highly recommend staying at this hotel in Sapporo as it is very easy to get to all the main places of interest and right next to all the shopping centres.

We had a wonderful stay of 4 nights. The staffs not only can speak fluent English, they are very friendly and helpful too. The room is clean and wifi is available in the room. What surprises us is that there are hp charger provided as well. Overall we are satisfied and happy with their service and will definitely recommend to our friends.

Stayed as a couple for one night, counter staff spoke good english and made our check in/out procedure very easy, including the instructions for payment which has to be done at a seperate machine located at the lobby. Rooms are clean and decently sized and are very good value for the price paid.

The only draw back would be the distance from the station, it was tough dragging 2 luggage bags in the snow and cold to the hotel. There is a sheltered path from the station to the hotel but there are a couple of stairways which make it difficult if you have huge luggage bags. It took us about a 10 mins walk to reach the hotel via the main street with our luggage.

The Hollywood twin room is very good for a family. I like the room very much with a nice view and spacious too. Breakfast served at the ground floor restaurant and very tasty. The staffs were really lovely and gave me and my kids a parting gift on ARRIVAL!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Richmond Hotel Sapporoekimae from 29th Dec 2012- 1st January 2013, a total of 4 nights and we were very pleased with the entire experience.

Situated extremely near to the Sapporo JR station, this also meant that shopping outlets such as ESTA and Stellar Place(including the "Sapporo Tower" attraction) were easily accessible by foot(roughly 10-15minutes). With convenient stores nearby, this means that Richmond Hotel Sapporoekimae is well located. One could also walk via the Subway walkways from Odori or Sapporo and take exit 1, this will bring you to the street before the hotel and you just need to cross the road to reach the hotel.

Room-wise, it was really clean and equipped with iphone chargers, a decent sized bed for my girlfriend and I, toiletries, an air purifier and ironing board etc. It was definitely worth the price for an exceptional business hotel, 5800JPY per night.

Personally, the free access to WIFI from my hotel room was another point that made me happy and my stay convenient. Apart from that,service was excellent and the staff answered my queries for directions whenever i asked, with a smile.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who values wifi access, cosiness and comfort(if you do not mind a room that isn't very spacious), location,value and not forgetting good service.
