Please tell me a hotel in Hokkaido where I can stay for less than \8,000

I declared to take a 1-week-break in September to go to Hokkaido for the first time! But I don’t know where I should visit at all. Please tell me of a hotel and a place where I can enjoy myself to the full. It is a limited travel financially, so if the hotel charge is over \8,000 per night, it would be difficult to me.

Sapporo Manyuki (casual trip without any plan)

This hotel is located in the Sapporo city which is ideal. You can explore many places in the suburbs of Sapporo by train and bus. I, the other day, visited the Sapporo Beer Factory. It was quite impressive. Boys be ambitious!

firstly from Sapporo

This Apa Hotel is located in the convenient place and it is just right for a single traveller to stay in and stroll about in Sapporo. It would be the best idea about meals that you have a breakfast at the hotel and find a nice tavern to have your evening meal. The sea-products are delicious and cheap. You can visit a few Sapporo ramen shops to taste. Then it is a good idea to decide the next place to stay.

It is cheap.

Apa Hotel is good. My favourite place is Furano and Biei. The scenery is very beautiful. September is the beat season to visit Hokkaido. Try genghiskhan at “Daruma”. The “Daruma” has an atmosphere for a single traveller to go in without any hesitation.

Apa Hotel “Sapporo”

The hotel is Apa Hotel “Sapporo”. Excuse me to say, but if you want a cheap trip, the hotel should be Apa Hotel. Then if you go to Hokkaido, the place to visit should be Sapporo. When I was young a long time ago, I also went to Sapporo on my cheap trip. The access is important. Just strolling about would be enjoyable.

I feel comfortable with a big city!

Hokkaido is huge. If you have 1 week to explore, I recommend you visit various places, starting with Sapporo which is the center of Hokkaido. Otaru, Biei and Furano are highly recommended to visit. If the places are far from Sapporo, it’s better to change the place to stay in.

If you are on your own, this is recommended.

If you stay at on your own, the Apa Hotel is good enough. In Sapporo, as you are on your own, you can eat whatever you want, such as ramen or Genghis Khan. (Mongolian mutton BBQ) You can extend your trip to Otaru and have sushi. I recommend that you should rent a car and visit various places to eat various foods, driving around.

札幌駅周辺のホテル

The hotel is suitable for a day trip. ( a trip to Otaru to visit the glass factory and enjoy sushi, a trip to Asahikawa to visit the Zoo and enjoy the Asahikawa ramen). It is also convenient to go to the Susukino area to have an evening meal.

the facilities and the location are good for the price

The hotel is connected to the Sapporo station, so you don’t have any problem for shopping and meals and it’s easy to move the following day. I stayed at this hotel on business many times. The first visit to Hokkaido tends to be greedy with the tight schedule, but it is more comfortable, if you only visit Sapporo town and the suburbs. Getting tired on a trip is not pleasant, so you can enjoy yourself enough even the places to visit are limited. You can enjoy delicious foods instead. Personally, I liked the fish at the Sapporo Chuo Market, so it’s recommended.

close to the station, and it is an appointed meeting place

I stayed at this hotel in July, as I wanted to see the night view from Mt. Moiwa. This hotel was the meeting place for the bus-tour, so it was very handy to be picked up and to be taken back. It was allowed to be dropped off at Susukino on the way back. The hotel is close to the station, so it was convenient to go place.

the hotel’s hospitality is superb! The buffet-styled breakfast is highly recommended!

I went on a business trip and stayed at innumerable hotels, I’ve never known any other hotel like this one which treats it’s guests that politely. The member of the staff carried my bag to my room for me. It was a mere shoulder-bag. Also, I can’t forget that delicious meal. This is the best hotel that I have known. Not many hotel provides an all-you-can-eat cod-roe. On the top of that, the sea products in Hokkaido are also all-you-can-eat. It is a really well recommended hotel. If it comes to Hokkaido, Sapporo is the place to visit first, I think.

I could stay there without any worry.

I visited Hokkaido on my own last year, I recommend the Keio Plaza Hotel Sapporo where I stayed then. The hotel staff kindly selected the room at the end of the floor, because I was a female single traveller. The member of the staff took me to my room. It was a very relaxing, good hotel.

The hot-spring quality is the best in the Noboribetsu hot-spring.

If you go on a trip to Hokkaido for the first time, I recommend the South Hokkaido. Please enjoy the Noboribetsu hot-spring with the best quality of hot-spring water after having the delicious fish and sea-products in Hakodate. I recommend Otaru where you can enjoy the sea, the delicious sushi and the hot-spring in Dooh(central Hokkaido). Please

a long-established hotle

The base of hot-springs in Hokkaido is Noboribetsu. This is the start. Most locals know this hotel, “Takimotokan”. Recently, the hotel has been inviting foreign tour guests, so it could be sometimes very noisy. On the contrary, you may have a chance to make friends with them. You’ll be surprised with the huge hot-spring. Depending on the charge, the room as well as the meal is hugely different, so you can choose one adjusting to your budget.

the top-class in Japan

The Noboribetsu hot-spring is famous and this hotel is far more large scale, so this is the place where one wants to go just a once. The cheapest price is \8,500, which is unavoidable. They have more than 30 hot-springs. The hotel is full of the enjoyable facilities and the strolling area outside is also large scale.

various types of hot-springs and many sightseeing spots.

The hotel has various types of hot-spring and the meal is top-class. The bear farm, the ropeway, visiting hot-springs are all in a walking distance to enjoy on your own. There are a lot of traditional souvenir-shops close each other in the small site. The transport is convenient from Sapporo.

the hot-spring hotel with a buffet-styled breakfast full of the sea-products

The hot-spring is on the top floor. You can soak yourself comfortably in the open-air hot-spring, viewing Mt. Hakodate and the Hakodate Port. The ice-candies are placed for you after the bath for free. The buffet-styled breakfast is full of sea-products such as squid-sashimi and salmon-roe-donburi(a big bowl). As the hotel is in the Bay area, it is convenient for sightseeing, meals or souvenir-shopping. The Hakodate morning market is in a walking distance.

the hotel with the delicious breakfast

I stayed there with my family last year. The plan was the one with breakfast only, but there are the Sushi-shop run by the fish-monger and the ramen-shop, “Ajisai” which offers the famous salty-taste ramen in Hakodate, nearby. The breakfast was buffet-styled with variety in the menu. I was fully satisfied. We had sukiyaki for lunch and my children were delighted.

The breakfast is superb.

It is a hotel near the Hakodate Bay area. It is not far from Mt. Hakodate. The location is good for sightseeing. There are many food shops around the hotel. (no food shop inside the hotel.) The hot-spring is on the roof from where you can see the Hakodate city, soaking yourself in the hot-spring. The buffet-styled breakfast includes the seafood-Donburi which you can place your favourite seafood on the top of rice in a bowl. You can taste the foods of Hokkaido to the full.

the No.1 buffet-styled breakfast in Japan

The hotel is situated in the middle of the sightseeing spots and it is classy. The staff’s responses are pleasant. However, the most recommendable part is the buffet-styled breakfast. Amongst nice dishes, especially the “Katte-don” which you can put your favourite seafood such as ikuras (salmon roe) sweet-prawns, scallops on the top of rice in a bowl as much as you want is fantastic! I stayed at various hotels, but this breakfast is the best in Japan. The natural hot-spring on the top floor is so good that hot-spring lovers will become crazy with it. Your fatigue will go away and your Hakodate sightseeing will become a more enjoyable one.

the open-air hot-spring with the grand view

The Yunokawa hot-spring is very close to Hakodate. From Hakodate, the tram takes you to Yunokawa. You can enjoy the trip mood when you are on the good olden-era tram. The hotel is large scale. There is a tea-room and a Karaoke room on the 1st floor and you can enjoy yourself enough at the hotel. However, amongst them the most pleasure must be from hot-springs! When you take a bath in the hot-spring, you can see the contrast of the vast sea and the Hakodate peninsula and at night, you will be surely moved by the light of the fishing boats, listening to the sound of the waves under the starry sky.

the fresh sea products and a surprise

I visited there with my wife and daughter. What a gorgeous evening meal that was! No matter how much I ate, I couldn’t taste everything. Then all of a sudden, the roar of the aeroplane was heard above our head. Was it an unexpected gift? The night view was fantastic. If I have a chance, I’d like to visit there again.

the night view is magnificent

Hakodate is the best place for the first trip to Hokkaido. It is an old town in Hokkaido and it is beautiful with old houses and exotic buildings. The night view from Mt. Hakodate is one of the best 3 night views in the world. It is the popular sightseeing spot. The hot-springs also have a good reputation and the Yunohama Hotel is a traditional hotel in Hakodate. You will be comforted mentally and physically.

the cheap hotel close to the station

Even though the hotel is situated in the best place which is a 1-minute-walk from the South-exit of the JR Sapporo station, you can stay there for the cheap price, as it is a famous city-hotel chain. If you do sightseeing in Hokkaido, you should visit places around the Sapporo station. I recommend this hotel to stay as a base for your sightseeing.

the convenient hotel connected to the station

You are travelling on your own, so I recommend the hotel connected to the station which is convenient in many ways. The length of your stay is 1 week, so this hotel is handy for going places from the Sapporo station and for a-day-trip or 2-day-trip, using a bus-tour.

You can relax in the big-bathroom facing the Tanuki-koji

The breakfast with plenty of vegetables and the ingredients from which I could feel the Hokkaido mood was very delicious. The hotel itself and the room were both clean. It was very convenient that I could walk to Susukino and the Sapporo station. They have a big-bathroom with a sauna to ease the fatigue. This is my favourite hotel.

geographically good

The hotel location is so convenient that you can walk to the Odori Park. You can go into the hotel building from the shopping arcade with a roof, so you won’t have any problem, even if it is a bad weather. The hot-spring bath is spacious and comfortable. As it is a cheap trip, according to your desire, I’m not sure if it will meet to your budget. But you can stay there for under \8,000, if you want to.

The breakfast is satisfactory.

The hotel is located in front of the Otaru station, so the access is superb. They have a natural spring bath and the breakfast is the buffet-styled all-you-can-eat seafood Donburi (a big bowl) and the fresh fish as well as the grilled meat. They offer the noodles for supper at mid-night. The charge is cheap for those services. The room is very spacious. I recommend this hotel.

Let’s enjoy Otaru, staying for a longer time.

My recommendation is Otaru. The town used to be called the “Wall Street of the North”, as it used to have more prosperity than Sapporo. Therefore, the historical buildings of that time remain and the town has an atmosphere of the European street. Besides, Otaru is a Port town, so the sea-products are fresh and there are many shops with delicious foods. Please stay for a longer time and enjoy the attractive town fully.

convenient for the Asahiyama Zoo sightseeing

It is the hotel which is convenient for the Asahiyama Zoo sightseeing with a delicious buffet-styled breakfast. The interior of the room and the lobby is beautiful and the bath is clean, comfortable. If you rent a car, the parking site is very close. This is the recommended hotel in Asahikawa.

the reasonable hotel with the big--bathroom

To touch on the real Hokkaido, why don’t you go to the northern part of Hokkaido? The Loisir, Hotel Asahikawa is located in the center of Asahikawa city which can conduct weddings. It is a hotel high in social standing locally. You can stay there for under \8,000 on week-days. You can get the feeling of a great deal, as it has a big bathroom. As Asahikawa is famous for hormone-yaki,(broiled pig innards), why don’t you go out for trying it at night?
During the day, you can visit the Asahiyaka Zoo, the Toma Limestone Cave or the Soun Gorge by the ropeway. If you drive, you can visit Wakkanai and Abashiri. If you have 1 week to spend on holiday, make a plan and enjoy the places, go to a many as possible.

It may be a minor place, but I recommend Obihiro.

I don’t know where I should recommend at all. Probably, other people will tell you about Sapporo and Hakodate, so how about Obihiro where you can experience farming and driving in the farm? The Lake Tohei is good to visit. The Richmond Hotel Obihiro in front of the Obihiro station is convenient. The lobby and the room are spacious and clean. The amenities and services are satisfactory. The breakfast is tasty.

It is in front of the station and the room is spacious.

If you go on a trip to Hokkaido for first time enjoyment, I recommend Obihiro and the Tokachi area. Although the front of the station is busy and cheerful, when you are a little away from there, you can see the big prairie of the Tokachi Plain and you can enjoy the scenery just like Hokkaido is famous for. There is the Manabe Garden, the Tokachi pasture and Koufuku station around the city for sightseeing. It would be nice to rent a car or if you don’t like driving, you can use the Tourist-bus which circuits, visiting various places. There are many hotels in front of the Obihiro station, but in September, their busy period comes to an end. You will have a big choice for \8,000 per night. I stayed at a few hotels in the Obihiro city, but I recommend the Richmond Hotel Obihiro-mae, if you don’t mind a business hotel. There are much cheaper hotels in front of the station, but the reasons why I recommend this one are the good location, of course, the single bedded room is fairly big, so you feel comfortable and the breakfast with variety in the menu is delicious. So, you can stay at this hotel for only one night or for a few days comfortably.
