Location

Nakajima Park is one of our favourite spots in Sapporo

When visiting Sapporo, we recommend finding accommodations located either near the main train station or by Nakajima Park. Near the train station because it’s easiest to reach and has plenty of shops nearby, and near Nakajima Park because that’s where most of the city’s best restaurants, activities and sights are located. If you haven’t guessed already, Hotel JAL City Sapporo Nakajima Park is nearby the latter.

You can reach the hotel using the Nakajima Koen Station and then walk for three minutes on foot.

Property and room

Check-in was super efficient

True to the Hotel JAL City brand, the architecture and interior is modern and sleek. But it’s not just the look of the place that has modernised, the check-in process has also kept up with the times with large-screen check-in tablets that make the whole process swift and easy.

Superior Twin Room was spacious and modern

We stayed in the Superior Twin room which was spacious and comfortable. A similarly modern and sleek design is used in the room which manages to fit two double beds, a flat-screen TV, a mini-bar, a sofa, a mini table and a Nespresso coffee maker.

The special Shiroi Koibito concept rooms are perfect for couples and lovers of chocolate

We also got the chance to look at one of their special concept rooms which was designed in collaboration with Shiroi Koibito – Hokkaido’s much-loved white chocolate biscuits. If you’ve never tried Shiroi Koibito, they’re biscuits people usually buy as souvenirs for loved ones. The concept rooms are perfect for couples looking for a getaway.

Services and Facilities

Breakfast is served! Nothing quite like fresh sashimi to start the day

Cafe Contrail is the hotel’s restaurant which serves breakfast and lunch. We were pleasantly surprised to find lots of local specialities at breakfast, some of our favourites include fresh sashimi, Ezo deer curry and zangi (Hokkaido’s take on karaage). Lunch and dinner were also excellent using the local produce Hokkaido is so famous for.

Public baths were clean and modern

Also located on the same floor as the lobby is the relaxation area with access to the public hot baths and sauna. It’s rare to find these types of hotel facilities within the city centre of Sapporo so we really love the addition.
