We stayed for 3 nights in Jan 17. Check in was fast and efficient. We were given a room at the top floor. Not much of a view except the streets below and the roof tops of buildings opposite. Room was small like typical Japanese hotels. The nearby pedestrian mall was useful to get to food and departmental malls when...

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.
