What kind of city hotel is JR Tower Hotel Nikko Sapporo?
This is a city hotel in Sapporo city. In my experience, the property would be the best in Sapporo city. If you have a chance to visit Sapporo city, you should stay here. Perhaps if you expect 5-star hotel service, it would be a good choice. You can experience sophisticated Japanese hospitality during your stay. The hotel would be great for couples, families with small children, business persons, and solo travelers. The ambiance would be cozy, serene, and tranquil.

Is the location easy to access?
Yes, very easy. The property is connected to Sapporo Station. It’s so convenient, especially on rainy or snowy days. If this is your first visit to Sapporo, you should stay here. Then if you drive a car, you might want to check a map carefully where JR Tower East Parking Lot is located. It would be hard to find it and there are many one way roads in the city. When you enter the parking lot, tell the parking staff that you are staying at JR Tower Hotel Nikko Sapporo. The parking lot is used also by the shopping center, so it tends to be crowded on Saturdays and Sundays. Then you need to pay the parking fee at the reception in the hotel when you check out. It costs JPY1,210 for one day.
Rooms I would recommend?
If you are going to stay here, I would recommend a corner deluxe room. It seems that most of the rooms including bathrooms tend to be cramped. You may want to book a spacious room as much as possible. Also if you want to see nice views, you should book a room facing the south side and Sapporo TV Tower. You can chill out in the room while viewing peaceful Sapporo city.
How about toiletries & in-room amenities?
All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, a coffee machine, a green tea set, and tea bags, etc. Also, this is child-friendly. Staff provides pajamas, baby bath chairs, rail guards, and meals for small children if you request in advance. You can rent baby cribs at JPY1,500. There are vending machines in-house. There is a convenience store nearby. Room service is available from 19:30-23:30. The free WiFi reception was good when we stayed here in 2018.
How about In-house Facilities?
There are nice indoor communal hot springs, saunas, and Jacuzzi called “Sky Resort Spa” on 22F. It costs at JPY1,600 for per day. It was so refreshing after a long day out. The spa is open between 11:00 to 23:30. *A minimum age requirement of 18 applies. If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing area. Unluckily, there is no gym, no swimming pool, or no club lounge, etc. Then JR Tower Hotel Nikko Sapporo is a perfect universal design. There are some rooms for wheelchair users. Wheelchairs are available for borrowing. If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.

How about meals?
The food experience for breakfast was wonderful. You can choose either a Japanese restaurant called TANCHO or a buffet-style Japanese western restaurant called “SKY J”. You can enjoy food while seeing the city views. The buffet is quite extensive. There was always more than enough food each day. The Japanese restaurant is open from 7:00-10:00. The buffet restaurant is open from 6:30 to 10:00. Then, I would recommend a French restaurant called “MIKUNI SAPPORO” for dinner. I think that this restaurant would be the best French food in Sapporo city. The location is next to the hotel building. After dinner, don’t forget to visit the bar called “SKY J”. You can drink while viewing night landscapes and listening to live piano music. The bar is open from 20:30-23:00. Alternatively, you can go out for meals as there are many restaurants around the property. You should enjoy the local seafood during your stay.
The most important I would like to highlight is that all staff is truly excellent. Their hospitality would be top-notch. We could have a very comfortable time thanks to them. Overall, the price range would be reasonable. At last, don’t forget to bring non slip boots if you visit Hokkaido in the winter season. Sapporo city powdered with snow would be very charming.
