My mistake booking a smoking room, unfortunately could not put us in non smoking was booked out, however they moved us next morning with no reminding. Much appreciated as a smoking room in Japan makes an ash tray smell fresh. Gag.
Breakfast was fantastic, one of the best, and another reason we like hotels in Sapporo as they try that bit harder. Salads crisp, scrambled eggs soft and very yellow, and juicy.Snow crab and egg custard perfect, and morish. Miso soup full of flavour, not watered down. Really the whole meal, in almost tapis plate style, was the best we have had in the many trips we have done to Japan.
The Onsen is really a hot pool resembling an Onsen, but still better than nothing, and soaks the tired muscles in hot water. Love the shampoo bar (tried the "protect" brand and the menthol really warmed up my head, thought what hair I had left, might just leave too - but all was well). A nice scrub down offering more room than the rooms bathroom, so hot tub area very good.
Would recommend, and so close to JR etc. via underground mall (winter bonus). We have always stayed down Suskino area, so appreciate being closer to central Sapporo.
