Review: Sapporo Tokyu REI Hotel

Review: Sapporo Tokyu REI Hotel

To bid adieu to 2017, my travel partner took me to Japan’s winter wonderland. Sapporo isn’t a stranger to you, I suppose. What do you know about the capital city of the ever mountainous Hokkaido? Share it!

We’ll talk more about this freezing cold yet enticing city as we unfold our year-end trip right here on this blog. For now, I’d like to share a concise review post (as I always do) on the hotel we stayed at. You know that I’m not really into flowery writings when it comes to reviews. Tee-hee!

Let’s get started!

BASIC INFO

  • Comfortably located just a minute’s walk from Susukino Station and seven minutes from Odori Park. Guestrooms are designed with simple, chic interiors to ascertain a pleasant stay.
  • 10 minutes by car from JR Sapporo Station
  • About 20 minutes by free shuttle bus from the north gate at JR Sapporo Station to Sapporo Tokyu REI Hotel
  • 1 hr by airport bus from New Chitose Airport to Susukino
  • 40 minutes by train from New Chitose Airport to Sapporo Station
  • 1 hr & 10 min by car from New Chitose Airport

 

LIKES

  • Easy access to the popular sightseeing spots downtown.
  • Guests are spoiled with complimentary toiletries (brand: Shiseido), room essentials, skin care products, and bottled water (provided everyday).

nightwear

  • Housekeeping is available everyday.
  • Hot shower and heater are pretty efficient.
  • Changing of linens and towels can be done everyday.
  • Easy to locate as it’s situated along the main road and just few minutes away from entertainment establishments, local restaurants, department stores, and pubs on foot.
  • Clean and quite surroundings (I never heard the traffic noise from the outside. At one or two occasions I could hear voices from the corridor but not that loud.).
  • We didn’t experience any problems with the staff.
  • Simple yet classy room design.

 

DISLIKES

  • The room that we had was quite costly for its size. It actually lived up to its name.

VERDICT

In Japan, hotel rooms are expected to be mostly small in size regardless of the price. Knowing this, I wasn’t really disappointed. What mattered to me most was the comfortable slumbers we had during our stay and we were still able to move around the room. I mean I didn’t feel like suffocated whatsoever. If having a gentle sleep matters most to you, Sapporo Tokyu REI Hotel isn’t a bad place to be your temporary bedroom for a night or two.
