This was the forth or so Tokyu Inn that one had stayed at over the years and their selling point is the quality of the breakfast, customer services, cleanness and value for money. This one did not let them down.

From the JR station it is easy enough to find head south via the underground passage ways for the Nanboku underground line, two stops to Susukino and head out for the "Streetcar" exit. The hotel is right down beyond the tram terminal. Note the entrance is on the street just a bit further up, avoid going into the hotel's mall which is connected to the hotel but not the correct entrance.

Breakfast is good with both Japanese and Western treats. If you do not have it paid for as part of the booking you need to sign each day on the key. Most Japanese travellers have it pre-paid but it appears common practice for westerner hotel booking companies to exclude breakfast from the booking which can cause hassle, misunderstanding and delay. It seems pretty stupid to me why westerners can't have the same deal as Japanese travellers in this respect. Tokyu at this venue does not use the voucher system for breakfast and this seemed pretty common in Hokkaido.

Rooms were small which is common in Japan in this price range. Broadband free. Sensible prices compared with other hotels in Sapporo.

Did not eat in the hotels main restaurant for evening meal but did try out the hotel mall's Italian restaurant. This was good and fun. Went back again but due to the small size of the place all tables were taken and staff didn't seem to get the drift that we didn't want a counter meal and least of all smoke blown over us from nearby smokers. So full marks the first visit, zero the second. Spotted a CoCo close by opposite McDonald's which is a Japanese quick curry house chain. Counter meal without the smoke and the fun of a Japanese pepper hot curry. They like their curries hot and a bit sweet. Mango lassi was good. Also went to Chinese restaurant in the hotels' mall but given that I can't remember a thing about it, it didn't make much of an impression. So I'd recommend the Italian but get in early before it gets full and the smokers arrive.

The hotel lived up to expectations. The hotel mall eateries were a bit like potluck.

Stayed at the hotel in March 2012 for a night and i must say the location of the hotel is excellent. It is situated at the susukino area with odori park and the sapporo tower about 10-15 mins walk away. The room is pretty small in size and the shower room is tiny. There's a shopping arcade by the hotel with some nice restaurants and eateries. Right behind the hotel are rows of restaurants, bars and clubs. Also, there's a huge shopping complex next to the hotel and the tourist information counter (located at the top floor) is simply amazing. The staff explained to us in detail the tourist attractions in sapporo, recommended us a nice ramen store (mind you, it ain't the ones along the ramen street) and even brought us down to the underground shopping area.

We stayed in Sapporo Tokyu Inn for one night, before returning to HK. It was a short walk to Odori Park (大通公園), Susukino District (薄野), Sapporo Ramen Yokocho(拉麵橫町). You could find lots of nice café and restaurants around the hotel.

Rooms were small but yet comfortable and well equipped. We are on the 5/f floor facing the main street but no traffic noise problem. Maybe it’s a weekday evening so the neighborhood is not that noisy. For our package, a buffet breakfast (Western and Japanese style) is included. The homemade bread tasted really good.

My wife and I got a great rate on a room at the Tokyu Inn. We stayed the first 2 nights of our 6 night visit to Hokkaido, and since it was a weekend, we wanted to be near Susukino. This hotel was perfect for our needs! It was a short walk to Odori Park for the beer gardens, and right on the streetcar line and near subway. Fortunately we got a room on a high floor and away from the main street (facing west toward the ski jumps).

Free internet in the lobby (with your own computer) was very helpful. The front desk staff was kind and helpful, despite just a little English spoken.

We stayed in Sapporo Tokyu Tokyu Inn for 1 night, before heading to Niseko for skiing.

Rooms were small and smell of tobacco (both typical of Japan though). Bathroom was tiny (travel lodge size) but well equipped (heating toilet seat etc). One nice extra was a programmable massage chair in the room, which my husband and I fought over.

Most guests were Japanese businessman. Staff was polite and friendly, spoke very little English but tried very hard. I could write Chinese characters so I communicated using that together with my broken Japanese. Breakfast was not included so we didn't bother. There were so many nice cafes just around the corner anyway.

Location was great. The hotel was connected to a small shopping mall with good restaurants and cafes. The Susukino bus stop for Donan bus (to Niseko) just outside the door. Tube station also very close. Taxi from Sapporo JR station takes <10 min (rush hour). Sports shop nearby which sells ski and snowboard gear and equipment.

It was freezing and slippery outside, and the streets seemed so very unusually quiet, until we found an underground walkway (accessible through the Susukino subway station) called Pole Town, which was thriving with pedestrians who stayed out of the cold. It was more than a walkway, lined with shops and cafes. Pole Town turns into Aurora Town, which connects to the Odori park. How we just missed the snow festival, arriving on the day that they were clearing up, so the Odori park was closed as well. Zan nen desu ne (what a pity).

We loved the Esta shopping mall (close to the JR station, 10 min walk from Odori park). Had lunch at the Ramen Republic (10th floor), a food court specialising in noodles from across Japan, but looked more like a theme park. Big Camera (1st-5th floor), an enormous electronics store, was a wonderful place, not just for my husband, but for me as well. They had demonstrations of all things wonderful - we saw WALL-E - an automatic, programmable vacuum cleaner as small as bathroom scales.

Overall, Tokyu Inn offers good value, compared to the pricey hotels next to the JR station. If you don't mind the short initial taxi trip (or subway, but difficult with luggage, especially snowboard), the location is perfect for exploring this quiet and charming city.
