Amazing
The hotel rooms are a little bit dated but it was very spacious and comfortable, especially after a long day on the slopes. The Onsen was beautiful with an outside area to watch the snowfall. It’s a convenient location with only 10 minute walk to all the restaurants and the free snow shuttles stop right outside the door.

2/10 Poor

Never again
Dirty and old. The caravan type bathroom smelt awful (like sewarage)and the bed covers hadn't been washed in a while! Water in shower scalded my back, thank goodness it wasn't a baby/child :( Told reception staff and showed them the burns but they couldn't care less. Breakfast was just ok. Not good value for money at all.

Nice Quiet Hotel
Great hotel to stay at, not too far from the main strip of Echoland. Shuttle bus to the snow fields from the front door. Staff were fantastic. Always eager to please.

Comfortable hotel with convenient shuttle services
Comfortable for small or large groups. Breakfast is good. They offer plenty of shuttles to get you around hakuba with the stop being just at the front of the hotel. Ski hire in the hotel is decent. Walking to echoland is about 15 mins which seems longer in the freezing cold.

Japanese service!
Tucked away at the end of a street in echoland, this little gem delivers all that's required for a snow getaway. Buses directly to almost every resort stop at the front door, good hotel facilities that provide comfort and an exemplary service team led by the manager. The manager was so helpful and attentive to the guests with no request to big or small.
