Stayed a night in Daini Meisuitei with my family of 4adults.
Was debating between a stay at this hotel or the sister's hotel, Meisuitei which is about 15mins walk away.
Decided to stay in this hotel because of the outdoor swimming pool.
Booked a room for 4 adults. The room comes with two single bed and a tatami area where they made up another two tatamis for two extra adults.
Bathroom is very small with the toilet and small bathtub and sink all squeezed together in a confined space much like a Toyoko Inn's bathroom.
This is one of the few hotels that offers a checkin at 2pm instead of the standard 3pm and a later check out at 11am.
The checkin was fast and the male reception checking us in spoke good English and is very friendly. He even gave us a 5% discount off the room rate when we paid in cash upon checkout the next day.
We got a non smoking room on the 9th storey.
The whole of the 9th storey of this hotel is non smoking but the non smoking rooms are on a first come first serve basis although you can put in a request when booking.
The meals we had were both buffet style.
Breakfast is a bit tastier than dinner with freshly baked breads, waffles, pancakes. There was also Japanese breakfast selection consisting of rice, porridge and the traditional Japanese condiments, miso soup and some egg dishes.
The hotel tries to offer some innovative dishes for dinner. They had a deer meat stew and some Genghis Kang hotpot that you select the ingredients and cook in individual pots yourself.
I like the mushrooms and vegetables Shabu Shabu hotpot best.
The onsen offers some interesting baths. Besides the usual therapy baths for common ailments, there was a walking bath where you have to walk round the longish bath with the lower body submerged in the hot spring water.
What I like about this hotel is the restful environment where the hotel is situated.
Our room overlooks a river and it is nice to open the windows a little before you sleep for fresh air and wake up to the sound of the flowing water.
If you wake up early enough, you can even take a walk along the river.
We had our own car and there were ample parking in front of the hotel but I notice that the hotel does provide pickup to and from Sapporo for those that don't drive.
I will go back for a stay again at this hotel. It's a nice and relaxing getaway a short distance from the busy city of Sapporo.
