Sapporo Aspen Hotel
Travel Blogs from Sapporo
It was a full day of walking today.
We started the day at 9am by strolling around the grounds of the Hokkaido University. The main entrance of the university is just a stone's throw from the side door of the Aspen hotel. The University ground is vast and lined with unique trees and a nice garden with a stream. There were studens putting up …
The family is still in dream land. I'm too excited to sleep. In a couple of minutes, the house will be bustling with life, kids busying with the final decision on the toys that will travel with them on this trip 😉 In 12 hours time, we'll be in Sapporo!!
... minimum of 12 hours a day! The teachers here are in at 7 and don't leave till 6/7. In fact when I finish sports with the kids some times the vice principle is there past 8. Anyway Thursday after school I played volleyball again and at one point the girls all started dancing. One girl fell over walking (lol) and all the girls started laughing in a friendly way and joining her on the floor. But one girl started saying she was a chicken and started doing ...
... we live near there and that Chris is researching at the university. Of course once she walked away I thought about the correct way to say a few things, but as I used to remind my students, communication is about being understood. Did she understand? I think so, so who cares about the mistakes. I can fix them in the future.....if I study.
And thus concludes my birthday week. Thank you for all of the cards, gifts and messages. Even though I am so many miles away, you still made my day special.
... us, but I think it was. We were just too slow for them, and they were also too polite to tell us to expedite our approach or exit the runway immediately. Ugh. It put a small damper on what was otherwise an amazingly successful flight. Needless to say, regardless, Johannes and I congratulated each other.
Peter Steeger was our handling agent and I can recommend him to anyone traveling by small plane that direction. He had a picnic ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
I booked a 4-bedded room for my family of 4. There are 4 single beds in the room. The room is very spacious. There isa table with 4 arm chairs at the side and a study table with flat screen TV.
There are 2 basins at a common area, 1 toilet and a bathroom with adjourning clothing area. We were very happy with the setup that allows individuals to be doing different activities while getting ready to leave in the morning.
There was room service. We asked for non-smoking and indeed there was no smell of smoke at all in the room nor corridor area.
I would strongly recommend this hotel.
We took the Airport Raid from New Chitose Airport and had 2 large suitcases with us.
The hotel is just to the left from the JR Sapporo station North exit (Hokkaido University). One traffic light straight and the hotel is to the left. L Plaze is to the right of the traffic.
