Breakfast was a buffet with selection of meats, salads, sausages, scrambled eggs, soup, fruit, buns + spreads. Drip filter coffee, green/black teabags. Served from 7.30am though you have to be quick if there is a school group as the food goes very quickly and they do not refill. Dinner was good with a large selection of japanese food (sashimi, fish, soup, salad, dessert) on a 4-day cycle menu. Selection of sake and wine (only ok in quality) you can get from the bar for dinner. Seated tables for service. Location is by far the highlight - ski in/out - opposite the ski lifts/ticket office and also another ski lift at back of hotel. Room comes with a ski locker (very small and quite a challenge to fit 2 skis in) and hotel does have small ski hire facility - we decided to hire elsewhere (opposite hotel at SnowCan which was better) as the condition of the skis was poor and the person fitting the boots didn't check the DIN settings. Hotel has laundry facility (coin operated) on each floor with an ice machine on 3rd Floor which was handy.
There wasn't an apres ski area to relax - you basically spend time in your room if conditions didn't allow you to ski. There was a lounge area but it wasn't heated so was pretty cold. Room did not have a bar fridge so we couldn't keep drinks cold and had to improvise using the balcony railing. The hair dryer provided was a mini dryer and didn't do much. Heating of hot water pipes came on about 7am and was very loud and noisy. No real tea/coffee facilities in the room.
Great ski in-ski out location, wonderful dinner experience, helpful staff.
Excellent breakfast and dinner. The staff were very friendly throughout our stay. The location is perfect: directly next to the bus stop and two ski lifts.
The pillows were not very comfortable.
Spotlessly clean. Staff were absolutely fabulous. Great location. Dinner was fantastic every night. Right at the bus stop for Nagano and the valley service.
Dated but all the positives far out way this aspect if you are not focussed on luxury.
Overall very nice property . Super convenient . It’s right next to the ski slopes . Breakfast and dinner are included and were very delicious . Staff doesn’t speak much English but things go smoothly anyway. They have a very nice onsen as well . Rooms were big enough and clean .
I can’t think of anything I didn’t like .
