So stayed at yet another Toyoko Inn. Stayed here in June '06. Most of the Toyoko Inns are similar. These are like the Best Westerns back in the US. They're nice business budget hotels with good amenities. All the Toyokos have a dining room/area close to the lobby. On the ground floor there's usually a small laundry room with pay washer and dryer. There are also vending machines with water, coffee, snacks, and soft drinks. Word for those who may not be aware, breakfast is Japanese style, which means tea, miso soup, and choice of a few types of onigiri.
Each Toyoko room I stayed at was a single room with a clean comfy bed. Room also came with a desk, fridge, small closet, and small all-in-one bathroom. For the uninitiated, the bathroom is quite a technological innovation. The bathroom is a step up from the rest of the room. The tub is large and deep Japanese style tub. The toilet seat has a bunch of buttons to control the warmth of the seat, activate the bidet function, and do some other things that I don't remember. Toiletries are great and are all in one convenient location, no more little bottles.
For the price, the value you get from a Toyoko is outstanding.
Since all Toyokos are fairly similar, this review will be more about the city in which it was located.
This Toyoko is close to the main JR station and across from the local university. There are a couple of great parks nearby including the famous Odori Park, which is a long linear park with the Sapporo TV tower on one end. Another great sight that is a little bit more of a walk is the Sapporo Beer factory. There are also a few Western style buildings scattered around Sapporo. If you find Tokyo to be too warm for your liking in the summer, take a trip up to Hokkaido for a pleasant change of scenery and temperature.
