I will be going to Hokkaido in mid Dec, and have shortlisted 2 hotels for Sapporo. The ones at Niseko and Noboribetsu have been settled, Sapporo seems a little trickier. Hope the experts, Amanda and others, can advise which hotel would be a better choice to stay in.
1) Fino Hotel
Address: Nishi 4-15, Kita 8 jo, Kita ku, Sapporo city, Hokkaido 060-0808
This is 2 mins walk from the north exit of JR Sapporo Station, in front of the Hokkaido University .
2) Hotel Vista Sapporo Nakajimakohen
Address: 5, West4, South9, Chuo-ku, Sapporo 064-
This is 2 min walk left from exit 1 at Nakajima-koen station on subway Nanpoku line, near to Nakajima park.
Also, if I book from Rakuten(or other websites), sometimes I can only choose 2 people for a twin room, there is no option for 3 people at all. If we are 2 adults + 1 10-year old child, and we do not need an extra bed, can we still book the twin room and input 2 people in the booking? Will we have problem when we check-in?
