New Otani Inn Sapporo Reviews
A nice place to stay in Sapporo Feb 09, 2010
Since this was my first time in Sapporo it was just a coincidence that I picked Hotel New Otani Sapporo. It was the location that appealed to me. I booked it on a Japanese website I usually use when traveling in Japan, http://travel.rakuten.co.jp/en/
It was a nice choice indeed. Very conveniently located between the JR Sapporo station and the Odōri-kōen. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the train station, depending on how much luggage you are carrying, and a 5 minute walk from Odōri. I went to Sapporo to visit the Snow Festival and in the Odōri-kōen is where it all happens.
The rooms were nice and spacious for Japan, had a minibar, tea/coffee making facilities and free internet access (which was very fast). The bathroom was a typical Japanese sized bathroom, small, but good enough for one person and with a good selection of amenities. There were even pyjamas in the closet.
Breakfast was not included, but there is a Chinese café, the Rendezvous Lounge, on the first floor and a lunch and dinner restaurant, the Four Seasons, in the basement. There was also a flower shop as well as a convenience store in the lobby.
The reception staff was very friendly and helpful, but limited in English. For ¥7830 pr night I found this good value for money and would absolutely stay here again.
