Best Hotels and Ryokans for Solo Travelers

TOP5 Best Hotels and Ryokans for Solo Travelers in Hokkaido

The following five hotels are ideal for solo travelers in Hokkaido. Alternatively, I would recommend staying at one of them while on a business trip.

Boro Noguchi Noboribetsu Hotel is easy to get to as there is a free bus service from Sapporo city center, and all rooms have private onsens. The meals are sophisticated and all are served in private rooms.

ONSEN RYOKAN Yuen Sapporo is a sophisticated ryokan-like business hotel in Sapporo with communal hot spring baths. It is the perfect place for those who do not have time to visit a hot spring spa resort but still want to experience the feeling of a hot spring.

Kuriya Suizan and Zaborin are gourmet ryokans, and many solo travelers stay here to drink, enjoy the onsen, relax in the cozy lounges until check-out time. Zaborin also offers a shuttle service to the ski slopes nearby.

CENTURY MARINA HAKODATE is a comfortable hotel for solo travelers. There are many restaurants and tourist attractions in the area, and it is convenient to get around. Many business travelers seem to stay here. Also, the breakfast buffet is excellent.
