Great experience, fab location, comfortable rooms”

Location, efficient, good service

We stayed for 2 nights at the Richmond Sapporo Ekimae... 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 the Sapporo Snow Festival... the restaurant on the premises is great... room is smallish but quite efficient, it provides everything you may need, a small desk, tv, good bathroom and comfortable bed... The front desk helped us in booking some buses and they were really accomodating... Overall we were very happy with the hotel...

Quality hotel that exceeded expectations”

Friendly service, room size

The staff were welcoming upon arrival at the Richmond Hotel in Sapporo. They were friendly, attentive to provide for our stay. The location is accessible from Sapporo station (easy access from exit 22 on the underground Toho subway walkway) and just north of the other attractions of Sapporo (such as clock tower, restaurants, etc). It makes a good business or casual hotel. Rooms were of excellent quality and modern, with everything exceeding what we had expected for a value hotel.

Excellent Hotel at a Good location”

Its a very clean hotel. The location is good as it is near the convenient stores and several blocks away from Sapporo Station. Tokyu Hands is also nearby. Susukino and Tanukikoji are actually walkable, maybe a 10-15 minute walk but if you want to be closer to the happening area like Susukino and Tanukikoji Arcade, I suggest another hotel like Mercure. There's also another Richmond hotel right beside Don Quijote. Hope this helps :)

Positive Richmond Hotels experience.”

Good location, English speaking staff, affordable.

We have stayed with Richmond Hotels before, and would do so again. The front desk staff were great and spoke English well, and the hotel is in a good location. If you come out of the JR Sapporo station gates, follow the signs to the Toho subway line. Once in the subway, walk around to the left of the entry gates and look for exit 22. Turn left after coming up the stairs, and this will take you within 50m of the Richmond Hotel entrance. This is great if you're arriving in the snow or rain. Bathroom was large in comparison with other Japanese hotels, and well stocked (and restocked every day). The view of the city was nice and it is an easy stroll into the Susukino district.

Close to Sapporo Station”

If you are looking for a hotel close to Sapporo Station, this is the hotel. Close to exit 22 of Sapporo station but you will have to take a few flights of stairs. If you are carrying a lot of luggages, and want to skip the stairs, use exit 23 instead which has an elevator although a little bit further away. Staff are friendly. My girlfriend was not feeling well, and I requested for some medicine for fever & cold, and they promptly provided them. Free mouthwash and bath salt at the reception table. They have a microwave and ice machine on level 8 which was really convenient. There were a few things (nothing major) but since I had stayed in a few hotels in my time in Hokkaido, I could compare. Room is a little bit small. The water shower is not consistent (sometimes the water is a little bit colder, sometimes a little big hotter). Bathtub quality seems not as good as other hotel which I have stayed. It feels not as solid and feels hollow at the bottom. Very minor problems but I just feel like pointing out. As another hotel which I stayed in Sapporo, Susukino which was similar in price but offer a bigger and more superior room.

Comfortable stay”

Book this hotel cause have a good impression of Richmond Fukuoka. Though near the station, getting to hotel via underground is still very confusing. Need to walk about 10 to 15mins to Sapporo station. Hotel uses Kettle that is above the room elect voltage. So when I turn on the kettle, the bedside lights and the toilet lights turn off and vice versa when the water is boiled and the kettle turn off. Gave us a fright thinking something is wrong with the room. Only when we check with the front desk, then the manager explained to us. I think it would be better that they inform guest before guest experience it. Almost wanted to request for room change if not because we trouble shoot step by step the cause of lights turning on and off without any reasons. Other than the above, hotel provides good facilities for laundry wash and purchase of drinks. Still worthwhile to stay here but would request a room without electrical problems.

The hotel is near the main Sapporo train station so getting there was not problem at all. In fact, we could use the underpass for most of the way because it was snowing quite a bit. There were more people underground than above like some of the reviewers said, and the shopping was great! Easy walk from the hotel to Odori Park as well. :)
