Naeba Prince Hotel guest reviews

 
 
 
Early January 2017

We were a group of 4 families comprising 15 people, staying at Naeba Prince hotel during 4th – 9th January, 2017. 

We were glad that we booked the rooms with Japan Snow Accommodation early since we checked later there had no room available for the period we stayed. 

We had a great time over there. The snow even could not be compared to that in Hokkaido however was considered good. The greatest thing above all was it was very convenient. Ski lockers were just at the ground floor of our hotel rooms and one of ski lifts was very very close just next to the hotel door. We will definitely go there again.

Best wishes,
Anchalee

 
 
Early January 2017

We love the hotel room and facilities. There are so many restaurants to choice. The slope and gondola is just next to the hotel (building 2). Just like ski in ski out. Kids playground is not far and fun for kids. The coupon system is good. We can use with many restaurants. However there is just one point l donot like. The Onsen is too small. We had a good time there and will seek a chance to go back.

Mid December 2015

We were really disappointed with the snow condition when we were at Naeba in December, 2015. Greatest disappointment was that the Dragondola was not operating during our stay and most of the run at Naeba were closed due to lack of snow. If we have not paid for the accommodation, we would probably go to other ski resort. 

Except for the snow condition, the other aspect are all up to our expectation, especially your service.

Nozawa View Hotel Shimataya Guest Reviews

 

 
Late January 2017

We had a great experience thanks and all the accomodation booking etc went perfectly smoothly.

Nozawa View hotel is really good. Couldn't fault it and we loved the traditional rooms. Too many Australians at the resort though and on a fine day there were decent lift queues which was unfortunate but nonetheless a gorgeous village and some great skiing particularly up the top of the mountain where the snow conditions were less susceptible to temperature changes.

Your assistance in this trip was fantastic. 

Thanks so much again.

Hakuba Meteor Pension guest review

 

 

Hakuba Meteor Pension

 

Early January 2014  Overall, very happy with the Meteor. 

Our one suggestion is that it would be nice if they offered Dinner. Even if this was a set menu and had to be pre-booked, having the option of not going out would be nice.

"I stayed in the Meteor Pension for seven days and found it to be an excellent place to base my skiing holiday..

The communal spaces are cosy, and aesthetically pleasing, the room was all I needed and the staff were great. They're extremely generous, super helpful and lots of fun.

The Pension is not that close to the action and you have to catch a shuttle bus to lifts but its free that wasn't a hassle at all. It meant the price was much lower. 

The snow was okay but not brilliant, I was hoping for some powder but wasn't to be."

by Nick F

 

"My friend and I stayed at Meteor Pension at the beginning of February 2011. We had a fantastic time, partly due to the epic snow conditions, but mostly due to the hospitality and approachability of the staff at Meteor Pension. 

They made us feel at home and gave us all the information we required about buses, lifts, best resort to ski that particular day etc. They went above and beyond what I would generally recieve at a Pension Hotel. 

They always have an English speaking staff member working- we had arrogantly gone to their country speaking very little Japanese, however they did their very best to translate our queries- even going so far as calling another hotel to act as a translator when their English speaking son, Yuigi had gone to pick up some guests from the bus terminal! 

The facilities are very good, with large rooms and welcoming communal areas. 

The location is also fantastic, just behind Echoland. It is central to all resorts, and while not being the closest to one resort, its location makes all theresorts between a 5 and 20 minutes shuttle bus ride from Meteor. 

Definitely will be returning next season!"

by Nick

 

"We really enjoyed our stay at the Meteor Pension - the family who run it are very friendly and keen to help, and any language difficulties were easily overcome. 

The location is great, in Echoland - lots of restaurants nearby, easy access to onsens, and good transport options for getting to most of the resorts. The continental breakfast was good value (the cooked breakfast didn't look that great). 

Our room wasn't huge but was well heated (apart from the bathroom, which was arctic!) and comfortable. 

We saw one of the rooms at the next-door Meteor Lodge - the beds are bigger and the room a bit bigger, but there didn't seem a huge difference. 

Overall, it was a really nice place to stay and seemed like really good value. 

We'll definitely stay there again if we return to Hakuba."

By Kate

 

"We stayed at the Hakuba Meteor Pension in February 2013. 

We travelled as a family of four to Japan to the first time, to visit our son who was working as a ski instructor in Happo One. 

The accommodation was perfect for us, close enough to the slopes and also bars and restaurants at Echoland and Happo One, whilst still retaining a peaceful character. We had a loft room, and shared Japanese style bathrooms which were interesting! 

Tetsu and his family who run the Meteor Pension were really helpful, they took us to the slopes and wherever we asked in the minibus, and the accommodation was friendly, clean and traditional. 

We loved it and would definitely stay here again."

We enjoyed the Skiing but the Semi Onsen  was fabulous. The staff looked after our every need and they were delightful the best Japanese experience. 

If they wish to improve on an already great experience adding a dedicated shuttle bus with a bit more flexibility would make just that much better.Would most certainly go back.

Thank you for the work you put in to make that happen.

Kind regards

Late January 2017

It was our first time staying at a ryokan and we loved  the Japanese experience at Semi Onsen. The rotenburo was my favourite and was simply beautiful. Often, I had it all to myself. The local ladies and other Japanese visitors who visited the onsen were so friendly, that I finally got some much needed Japanese practice.  We stayed in a western twin room that was immaculately clean, quite spacious and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The meals were Japanese style with many, many beautifully prepared, delicious courses.

Geto has been amazing and I think the best powder day I've ever had. Great mountain and great accom with the food a real highlight. Can you please pass on our thanks to the wonderful staff that have taken care of us at Semi Onsen. They are so nice and our stay has been beautiful.

Early Jan 2016

We had a great time. 

The accommodation was good (the only thing could be better is a description on where accommodation is situated when trying to find it for the first time). 

We did not spend too much time in Niseko skiing unfortunately; we drove rather to Rusutsu the first days and went skitouring instead to find untouched powder snow.

Hope all is well.

Kind regards,
Bjørn

Yoshidaya Ryokan guest review

 
 
Early Jan 2016 

Our ryokan was excellent, the staff were very helpful. 

The onsen was great too, and the local town public onsen were worth visiting also. 

I would recommend Zao onsen to anyone who would like to experience a more traditional Japanese mountain experience and who like a more peaceful town than the busier places like Hakuba. I will go back in the future.

As always your service was great too.

All the best,
Andrew Maher

The hotel was great and the lovely staff gave me a nice thank you letter (I suspect with the help on Google Translate) on departure. My wife, son-in-law and daughter also had a very good time. Food was excellent as usual.

I will certainly be going back next year.

Thanks

Early Feb 2016

We left Hakkoda this morning and I would like to say that we had an excellent stay there.

We lived Hakkoda for powder skiing, and we loved staying at Hakkoda Resort Hotel, warmest welcome, great rooms, great onsen, outstanding food!

We definitely look forward to coming again next year!

Thanks,

Isabelle & family

Just to thank U for everything, we are EXTREMELY HAPPY with the vacation, the amazing skiing the local guide were perfect, and we already plan to be back again!!

Mid March 2015

We had a wonderful time at the Hakkoda Resort Hotel this past weekend.  We enjoyed the Ropeway and skiing.  The food was very good at the hotel.  The rooms were also very nice.

We had one complaint.  The hotel allows smoking in the main lobby and upstairs in the sitting area.  There is no place in the hotel to go and sit without sitting in smoke.  That was very disappointing.

Thank you again for your help in getting us this reservation.

FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A BIG THANKS TO THE STAFF AT HAKKODA RESORT HOTEL THEY WERE AMAZING,SPECIAL THANKS TO NARITA ,MANUMI AND CON .

THE HOTEL LOCATION DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER ,SET IN THE MOUNTAINS AND SHORT WALK TO THE LIFT AND GONDOLA.

THE FOOD WAS AMAZING EVERY NIGHT AFTER A BIG DAY ON THE SNOW  YOU SAT DOWN TO A BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED 5 COURSE DINNER,BREAKFAST WAS GOOD AS WELL AS IT WAS AN ALL YOU COULD EAT BUFFET.

HOTEL WAS KEPT CLEAN AND ROOMS WERE CLEAN EVERYDAY .

THE HOTEL ONSEN WAS GREAT TO SOOTH TIRED LEGS.

Early February 2015

We had an amazing time at hakkoda, the accommodation was great, simple rooms which were clean and warm and we loved the traditional feel of the hotel with large onsens, great japanese food and good hosts. Definitely good value. Easy to get to. Got good conditions and some adventurous skiing and exploring. Hardly saw anyone else once off the telecabine. Worthwhie using a guide for a day or two to get the lay of the land. One thing that was a negative was difficult to get back to the hotel if you take one of the longer routes that dont end at the bottom. E.g. at the onsen. Couldn't figure out how to arrange pick ups. Would definitely go back.

Thanks
Paul.

Early February 2015

Terrific hotel with a very calm and nice japanese touch to it. We loved the variety of food and good choice of sake.
Superb hosts and great staff.

Hakkoda as a mountain is very special. Not the steepest but with a good range of backcountry experience.

Bring a guide if you want to access the more remote areas as you will need a shuttle service back to the ropeway.

We didn't have any new snow but it's said to be one of the places where it snows heaviest in all of Japan (maybe the world?).

Would love to visit both Hakkoda and Hakkoda Resort Hotel again.

5/5!

Early February 2015

we had a terrific time visiting Hakkoda and the resort hotel.

We were lucky to enjoy the mountain with clear blue skies and views were wonderful.

I can also testify to the beautiful quality food that we enjoyed at the hotel. Most enjoyable.

Thank you as well for organising the accommodation and transfers. As you know the Japanese trains work like clockwork and we were delighted to have our transfer waiting for us following our arrival.

We have plenty of photos and some movie and will send to you a little later.

Thanks again for you assistance.

Early January 2015

We really enjoyed Hakkoda Resort Hotel.  

The staff were excellent.  Friendly and helpful, with excellent English skills.  I must apologise for my difficulties trying to speak Japanese.

The location works very well.  Close to the chair lift and a bit of a walk to the cable car.  The public bus stop is reasonably close but fortunately we had a maxi taxi for travelling to and from Aomori.

Evening banquets were superb.  It was a varying treat each night.

Breakfasts were substantial with western options.  Like most places the choice cereals was limited.

We had a western room, one of only 4 in the hotel.  They are quite spacious but like most accommodation we have stayed at there was limited storage and hanging availability.  One needs to live out of a suitcase.

The onsens are generous and functional.  No view or highlight but most satisfactory.

There is not much around the Hakkoda base but we were there for the skiing and the mountain and weather treated us to some superb kona yuki skiing.

Regards Murray McAlister




 

 

Late January 2015

Hakkoda was FANTASTIC. 
 
The mountain was epic with the amounts of snow we got, sometimes even too much causing you to get stuck.
also quite scary and disorientating when the weather comes in.

GPS, snow shoes, whistles and powder boards/ skis are a must really on this mountain when the weather is bad.. 
In saying that, when you get your bearings, there are endless tree runs in almost every direction, and fresh tracks last all day!
 
The accommodation was great, the staff were friendly, and the food was AMAZING! 
 
I have attached photos!
 
thanks for all your help getting us there, you made it super easy and we will be heading back for sure!

As for your service, it was outstanding. You went out of your way to help me, even after my trip started.

I will surely do business with you guys again.

The hotel was great. The food was also amazing. But you have to be aware, this is a typically Japanese experience. Only thing though, there was some pretty heavy smoking going on in the hotel. This was problematic for me. But aside from the smoking, the hotel was super. Pretty much ski in/out. What can you ask more ?

Thanks for everything,
Me Jean-Frederick Dicaire

 

 

Early January 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at Hakkoda.  It snowed alot and the skiing was good.

The lodge quiet, our room was clean and comfortable , the food was great and the small onsen a real treat after skiing.

Smoking is allowed in the common areas in the lounge and we did not expect this, so the lounge smelt smokey.

Early January 2015

Thank you so much for all your help with organising Hakkoda Resort Hotel! You made it very easy in booking the accommodation and organising my return transfer to Aomori Airport. The hotel itself was amazing

The food was simply to die for! 

The rooms were fantastic - always clean and well attended to. 

The staff always smiled and although they spoke little English, they always made the effort and appreciated when I attempted to speak Japanese! 

The onsen was clean and of course the snow was out of this world!

Thanks again for helping me to organise this (being a solo traveller it can be a bit daunting) and I will definitely be back!

Early March 2014 

"Love this place. I've been 5 times in the last 8 years. 

I have boarded every single major resort in Japan, and quite a few of the smaller ones, over the last 15 years, some of them multiple times, and Hakkoda is the best for untouched backcountry. 

The quieter backcountry routes within an hour's drive of Niseko (Hirafu) for example see more backcountry traffic per week, than Hakkoda sees per season in my guesstimation.  

Long untouched runs. Fabulous nature and views. The hotel is fabulous as always with extremely kind and helpful staff, and good Japanese food. 

If you are going backcountry get Simon to take you ... for his unparalled knowledge of the mountain, backcountry safety, local insight, and witty stories"

The hotel was great as always. Only complaint is that my room was overlooking the carpark and the snowploughs woke me up very early every day ... but what to do ! 

Regards
MATT

 

Mid January 2014 I had a very good time in Hakkoda !


It's quite a unique experience to ski there, it's good that I booked a guide otherwise I'm sure I would have gotten lost! 


The hotel was very nice and walking distance to the ropeway, and the booking process was pretty smooth.

Mid February 2014  Everything at the Hakkoda Resort Hotel was fantastic.  

The service and food were excellent, and I felt very welcomed there.  I also very much appreciated your help in not only making the reservation but also helping when I experienced travel difficulties.

Please thank the hotel for their excellent service.

Andrew Crowley

 

Mid February 2014  Firstly your service was excellent. Prompt, efficient and helpful.

Onto the mountain, I loved Hakkoda.

It helped that it snowed both days, so the conditions were fantastic. Being fairly quiet without too many Westerners also added to the experience. Tram / lift tickets were very reasonably priced, as was lunch at the restaurant.

As for the Resort Hotel, amazing ! The staff couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. I liked the basement onsen, particularly the fact there was a hot & cold bath, the rooms were comfortable and the facilities in general were as expected.

Dinner was a sensation every night. I just loved what was on offer. It was both a visual and a taste sensation and on reflection some of the best meals of my 3 week trip, and I went to some nice places.

The only 2 small niggles were:
- the rooms were incredibly hot at night, even with the radiator turned down. If I opened the window, the bleeping from the guy clearing the car park early in the morning was incredibly loud.
- bus stop wasn’t that obvious. We waited outside the ropeway, only to discover we had missed the bus to Shin Aomori as it left from the peaked wooden huts 50 m away

Hardly any major issues.

Attached below are some holiday snaps

Mid February 2014  Let me start of by saying that your service at JSA was second to none.  I meet many Australians whilst traveling in Japan and I mentioned your company and the great service to many of them.

In regards to the holiday, it was fantastic.

In regards to the Hokkoda Resort Hotel I would like to make the following comments

Overall I was very happy with the hotel and would definitely book there again.  The staff were all fantastic and very helpful.  The rooms were adequate.  The one huge surprise was the quality of the dinners at the hotel.  The meals were spectacular and better than many of Melbourne's finest Japanese restaurants where you would pay well over $80 AUD for the same meal.

The only negative comment I have in regards to the hotel was the state of the Onsen.  The staff stated it was cleaned regularly but every days I could see things floating in the water.  There was mould everywhere on the rook and walls.  I visited many Onsens whilst in Japan and this one felt the least healthy. However, that did not distract from my enjoyment of the hotel. 

Trust that I will be using your services when I return to Japan next time.

Many thanks
Scott Mahony

 

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at your hotel, i had a traditional room and found it very comfortable. The hospitality from you and your staff was fantastic, along with your eagerness to help in anyway. The meals were a combination of traditional Japanese and western food which was a good combination. 

I cannot wait to return, 

Thank you,
Mike Bolzon

 

Early February 2014  "We loved our stay!"

The staff are extremely helpful and polite. 

The rooms are clean, have everything you need, and are comfortable and well presented. 

And the food is fantastic! 

The resort is at the base of the mountain, right by the lift and ropeway, this is a huge advantage for many reasons. 

The mountain is amazing. We got it on bad weather but sill had fun in deep powder and definitely want to return. 

The city of Aomori is not too far away and well worth an explore. 

Hakkoda has a lot to offer. Highly recommended. 

 Sera Price

 

Mid January 2014 The hotel was very well located, just a short walk from the two man chair and the ropeway(cable car). 

The hotel itself was very comfortable, the food was good and varied and the staff very helpful.  A number of the staff spoke some English and certainly enough to help answer any questions.

Our room was typical Japanese style, the heating controls were simple and the bedding very comfortable.  There was ample storage for skis, boots and ski clothes, including a drying room, although the whole basement area was warm enough to hang jackets etc.

As a skiing destination it lives up to its billing of having great powder and the snow monsters have to be seen to be believed(basically large fir trees encased in snow and ice). 
However in January the weather can be very cold with limited visibility at the top of the ropeway plus high winds.  Whilst we were there it snowed every day and we tended to ski off the chairlift as there was ample variety, given the snow conditions, with some great tree skiing.  Although the runs were relatively short.

From the top of the mountain it is advisable to take a guide in bad visibility(most of the time whilst we were there!).  The terrain can be quite tricky and it is very easy to end up in the wrong place and having to walk out, not easy in 100cm of fresh snow!



Mike & Jacqui


 

 

Early Janualy 2014  We had a fabulous time and our stay at your resort was the highlight of our Japanese holiday.

I hope we will see you again next year.

Debbie

 

Early January 2014  Wow - powderhounds said that this was powder country and they weren't wrong.

The backcountry riding was fantastic. The weather was abysmal (apart from one day) but then that is the usual in the powder bowls of Japan. The hotel was this quaint little Japanese lodge with a full breakfast and traditional Japanese dinner. Every meal was an adventure. As is usual with the Japanese, the staff couldn't do enough for you. Nice onsen. I'm coming back next year ! Your service was excellent. Prompt and efficient.

Regards, Yusuf

 

Late February 2014  "We just want to say thank you for all your help. Especially before we had booked with you"

We had a fabulous time at the hakkoda resort hotel with some amazing snow and food. 

Everything has gone exactly as you planned it. Hopefully we'll be back next year and will definitely book through you again. "

Thank you 
Fiona

 

Late January 2014 "The Hotel was very good and also the organization of the trip (traveling, cap, trains etc.) worked without a problem. Thank you for your help in this case" 

Unfortunately the weather was bad, so we couldn't really enjoy the deep powder and has also no good pictures.

Maybe it would be great, if you advice the guest that the hotel and the ropeway can payed by credit card, but the all other stuff is by cash and there is no ATM available"

Thanks again,
Daniel

 

Mid January 2014 "The Hakkoda Resort Hotel is very well located a the base of the lift for the Hakkoda Ski Resort. 

"You can expect wonderful Japanese hospitality in a very remote location. 

The facility provides the basic hotel amenities with a fabulous Onsen. 

Do not be afraid to get a Japanese room if the western rooms are not available. The Japanese room includes a western toilet and sink in the room but the shower is downstairs at the Onsen. You sleep on a futon layed out over the delicat rice mat floor. This was not a problem.

The dinner was excellent and the breakfast was adequate.  It is mostly Japanese cuisine. Options are available for allergies other dietary needs. If you speak little or no Japanese, it s not a deterrent.  We booked thru japansnowaccomodation.com and had excellent service from our representative,Hisae. Hisae was very helpful when we needed to rearrange our shuttle
service.   By the way, the snow here is amazing.

There were a few disappointments about the hotel.  The Wifi is poor when everyone wants to get on at night.  Wifi is available in the lobby for free but there is also smoking allowed in the lobby."

Sheldon K

 

Mid January 2014 "The accom was fine" 

" little bit Faulty towers when it came to breakfast. Needs attention. Dinner was Ok and it would be good if they had a nice lounge area or bar to chill out in. 

One of the Aussi Guides that was there spruking in the lodge was a little annoying and spun us full of crap so as we would not find our way around the hill without using a guide. We nutted out the place and found all the exits they were using. Not a good PR person for the lodge. You guys were great thanks."

Andy

 

December 2012 "The hotel was very good - food was great and staff was friendly" 

"The staff has quite limited knowledge in english so it was really good to book through japansnowaccomodation who arranged out arrival and departure. On the downside, the hoteö allowed indoor smoking (probably quite common in japan) so it was quite smelly for a non-smoker."

By Anders and Linda

 

"During my short stay at Hakkoda Resort, the staff was friendly and accomodating" 

"We stayed in a nice tatami room with private bathroom, but no shower. The complimentary onsen was very relaxing and helped soothe the muscles after a long day of shredding the powder on the mountain. 

Dinner and breakfast were a nice combination of western and Japanese food, very tasty and quite filling for a large man. 

The only odd thing about this hotel was the lock down at 10 pm, but there is not much going on for nightlife, so we didn't miss much. 

Thank you Hisae for making the arrangements at this nice hotel."

By Tim

 

"I only stayed two nights at the Hakkoda Resort Hotel, but it was definitely a good experience" 

"The location was great. Staff were friendly (though knowing a little Japanese will certainly come in handy). 

And the food was fantastic. 

The rooms were comfortable and clean. 

One thing that was difficult as a single traveler was the lack of other things to do when not snowboarding (i.e. not much for night life). I saw a bar when I was looking around the hotel, but it wasn't open. So unless you rented a car and can drive back into Aomori, you might be a little bored at night. 

Barring that though, the place was great and Hisae was very helpful in making all the accommodations and answering all the questions I had about transportation, etc."

"Hakkoda Resort Hotel provides that typical Japanese service with beautiful food and friendly staff" 

"If I have a complaint it would be the allowance of smoking in the Hotel, but I know this is a Japanese standard which hopefully will change with time. 

We would not hessitate to return to the Hakkoda Resort Hotel. 

Thanks again for your work and assistance towards another fantastic Skiing Holiday. 

I will contact you again for 2014."

"The hotel is very good" - Jean-Francois Veilleux

"The staff is friendly. The bar was close during the stay. The food was very good but for one of my friends it was tough because he don't like fish and for the dinner the only option is fish. 

Also a Big thank you for Japan Snow Accomodation to help me to arrange the hotel and the transportation!!! I recommend this hotel."

"It has been 8years for me to use this hotel when winter season comes' Chul-Moon Kim

"the most beneficial thing to me is tat this hotel offers free shuttle bus privileged to passengers with Korea airline. 

as I have seen hotel staffs for many years and they have become good friends of mine. 

I also have been around many ski places around Japan however I would say this place is best one. 

only one thing I disappointed at hotel is wireless internet was not successfully provided. 

absoultely I will plan to visit this hotel this year again and next year."

"Had a great time here great snow great staff great people wil definatly stay thier again." 

"Took my family from US to Hakkoda as part of our tour through Japan...skiing and experiencing Japan.

Hakkoda is a special place...both for skiers/boarders and general travelers as well. Our stay at the resort hotel was great..

awesome location, they will pick you up when back country and you exit back on the road that circumnavigates Hakkoda mountains. 

Hotel rooms were clean, staff friendly, nice onsen, and good food. All good!"
