Appi Grand Villa 3 guest reviews

 
Late January 2017

Stayed at Appi Grand Villa 3 for 4 days in Jan 2017.

This hotel is quite big ( about 13 floors ) comfortable, but not over the top. Facilities are good, including Onsen and staff very friendly and helpful,you could get away with little or no Japanese language as most spoke some English.Virtually ski in ski out, just a 2 minute walk before you can ski down to the lift and you can ski back to the door.This hotel is a little way from the main Appi Grand Hotel where you can use their facilities with no additional cost but there is a regular free shuttle around the resort so you can access the main area quite easily.

Advanced runs are confined to the top part of the mountain, all with various lengths of green to get back onto the lifts. The most challenging run, with a tree run thru the middle of a split ungroomed run, is short  and has a long green run to access and even longer green back to the lift. If you are looking to be challenged all day I'd suggest this is not the mountain for you, if you like a bit of black and are happy with a good bit of cruising reds (our blue) and greens, then Appi would suit just fine.I travelled from Haneda airport to Morioka by train (Via Tokyo) and bus from Morioka station, I had no delays but recommend checking connections, to avoid waiting time.

Hisae at Japan snow accommodation organised all my accommodations in her usual friendly and efficient manner, re arranging dates to work in with my itinerary as we went, also picking up the deals with meals and lift ticket inclusions that were available. Hisae has organised my Japan trips for a number of years now and I will continue to use Japan Snow Accommodation in the future.

Late January 2015

Hisae (Japan Snow Accommodation booking Agent) was very easy to communicate with, very organised and kept me up to date. The whole booking process flowed very smoothly and I was really happy with the service.I would definitely use Japan Snow Accomodation again.

My week long stay at Appi Grand Villa 3 was wonderful. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much bother.

The main gondola is only a short ski away.

The hotel rooms are big by Japanese standards and had a great view over the surrounding mountains. 

The buffet breakfast consists of Japanese or continental selections and there is plenty of variety.

Lockable ski lockers for your ski gear next to the mountain exit on the ground floor.

There is a large onsen in the basement.

There are regular shuttle buses to transport you to the other hotels in the Appi resort complex or back to Morioka. Appi is only a sort bus or train ride from morioka( about 1 hour).

Appi resort also run a day trip to Shimokura resort on Fridays.

I would definitely recommend a visit - a small resort with only 3 lifts and hardly any skiers.

The snow we had the day we visited was some of the best i have ever skied in Japan.It was a great day of skiing at a tiny resort. Appi is a good sized resort and has some good steep runs and long runs.It takes a few days to explore properly.

We got loads of snow while we were there,I really enjoyed my visit to Appi.

Late January 2015

We had a wonderful trip!

The room was clean and big. 

Food was very good.

Steak and crab (buffet restaurant) was fresh and yummy.

Beef (まえさわぎゅう) served at Korean BBQ was high-quality. 

Wide slopes and non crowed (even holiday).  

Everyone can find the slopes that best suit their level.The photo is still prepared when it is ready we will send you.

Best, YingChe

"The owners were very friendly people. 

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Elm Pension and plan to return during March to try snow shoeing as recommended by Toshi-san. 

The meals were big, filling and delicious. 

The room was perfectly heated and the beds comfortable.

Overall a great experience. 

Thank-you very much."

"Owner speaks great English and both he and his wife are very friendly and accommodating!

The room had a great alpine view and was spaciaous enough for our gear. 

Well heated too.

No seats in the room though, so you will prob just sleep there. 

Downstairs has a big tv and dining table to chill out. 

They served up a great French Dinner and breakfast as well."

Hakuba Gondala Apartments 

Early January 2014  

We were in Habuka early jan 2014 for skiing and stayed at The Gondola Apartments with 3 bedrooms.

The apartment was clean and modern with a fireplace,and the kitchen was also well equipped.

Location was perfect,right in the heart of the village and surrounded by ski shops,restaurants,bars and next to the main gondola.What a beautiful view from the apartment!

Daniel the owner was extremely friendly and helpful,helping us to arrange
for taxis and onsens etc,nothing was too much for him! Thank you Daniel! 

Last but not least,the skiing was terrific,excellent powder snow and there
are numerous slopes to suit all levels.We all had a wonderful time and are
already planning our next trip soon.

Hakuba, we will we back!

Hotel Daimaru Guest Reviews

 
 

 

Late January 2017

Hotel Daimaru was conveniently located a 2min walk to Akakura Onsen lifts, the hotel rooms were huge by Japanese standards- plenty of room for laying out damp snow gear. The breakfast buffet was good and lockable snowboard racks in the downstairs storage room was a bonus. Great location, good value and epic Myoko powder.

Cheers Jodie
 

 

Mid January 2017

we had a great time at Hotel Daimaru. Our rating would be excellent for service, breakfast, onsen and location. Medium for hotel maintenance as it really needs some light renovation work (paints are peeling, carpet is very old and worn).

Having said that, i would go back and hope for a little refresher of the place :-)

Mid January 2017

HUGE snowfalls in Myoko but the whole ski area layout unfortunately is a logistical challenge and pretty tiring on kids in particular with all the walking and poor lift connectivity. The skifields are pretty flat too and you need steeper terrain for those snow fall quantities.

Whilst clean and Huge rooms the Daimaru is really really tired with wallpaper peeling off etc. The colours of the dated interior, vinyl floors and carpet etc was so bad it was laughable and everyone had a great joke about it. That said I would still recommend it and it was fine.

Hint for future bookings: You dont want to be in a room facing the road at Daimaru. The noise of the snow movers every night between 2am and 5am was pretty bad and caused sleeping challenges.

Your assistance in this trip was fantastic.

Thanks so much again.

Early January 2016

Hotel Daimaru was an interesting place to stay.

On the downside it is very rundown and in need of some renovation.

However it is clean and comfortable with large rooms and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It is an easy walk to chairlifts at akakura onsen resort and from there access to Akakan resort was convenient. It is also possible to walk through the village to the Akakan resort. We travelled on the shuttle bus to nearby suginohara resort and had 2 great days there with good snow and no crowds.

We had exceptionally good service at Spicy snowboard/ski hire shop, their equipment was good, well maintained and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had suitable gear.

Kogakuro guest reviews


Late Feb 2017

Kogakuro Hotel at Akakura Onsen was good. It is in need of some reburbishment but completely comfortable and clean with a lovely host, Meiko. Good breakfast available, we had a Japanese room which could sleep 3 people, and they have an inside/outside onsen which is clean. The outside bath is covered preventing the fresh snow flakes falling into the bath while bathing, which I like! They gave a nice bar with a real fireplace which is not often found in Japan ski hotels, good for apres ski drinks. 

Hisae and her team did a great job to organise our ski trip to Myoko Kogen

Guest review - Hakuba Goryu Stelle Belle

 

Book at Hotel Stelle Belle

 

Mid January 2014 "The accommodation: rooms warm and spacious , towel changed daily, beds every other day, clean, 24 hr Japanese bath was nice

No lobby for guests to hang out

No Wifi in the rooms

Service: lovely customer service, helpful,

wished more frequent trips to and from Hakuba Iimori .

Breakfast: Ok, was told 7:30-8:15, to my opinion too limited for a holiday hotel where guest may wish to sleep in a bit & then have breakfast

Distance: to Hakuba Guryu, walking

Beautiful area

Japan snow staff: very helpful , thank you"

Regards

Nadia

 

"We stay there a full week early march. We wish to recommand this hotel for the location as you can walk and reach the "escal plaza" in 5 Minutes (starting point of the ski activity.)

No need to worry about shuttle service schedule etc...free to ski.

But we wish also to point out that Konno San, His wife and THE ALL team are extremely kind, helpfull and attentive to all your needs.(pick you up at the bus station, bring you somewhere if you need etc...)

By the way food is excellent (either Japanese or Western)and the hotel is very calm and peacefull day and night and perfectly clean, warm.

The basement is equiped with lockers for skying equipment and the change room is of course heated)

The last but not the least and maybe THE point the quality of snow in Hakuba Goryu is there EXCEPTIONAL and very stable in quality (far different from Europe). A nice place."

Mid January 2017

We enjoyed our stay at Pension Locomotion. The owner was very helpful. The rooms were not very big but the biggest problem was the mattresses on the beds. We didn't find them very comfortable. Otherwise good value for the money.

Late December 2016

The owner is very nice and friendly. The overall facility is reasonably with its price. However, I got the basement room and it was extremely freezing when compared to the upstairs (breakfast area & common room). It seems that the heater in my room was not sufficient for its condition and size.

Regards,Tanaporn
 

 

Mid Dec 2016

My boyfriend and i visited Pension Locomotion on 1/15 this year.

I enjoyed the stay there. especially love the room and cozy bed.

Mid December 2015

The Locomotion was once again a lovely place to stay, it had avery comfortable room & the location was wonderful as it was in a quieter part of Hirafu.

With only a small walk to convenience stores and restaurants you felt like you were amongst it all but had piece and quite when you wanted.   

The Locomotion has a good board room downstairs and plenty of space in the rooms to hang up gear if you wanted.  

The owner was really friendly and cooks up a great breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead!  

The walk to the chairlifts only took 10 easy minutes and you could catch a bus 1 min away from the pension if you were felling lazy.  It definitely felt like a home away from home so we wouldn't hesitate in staying there again!  

Thank you so much for the help again with accommodation and we both look forward to using JSA again in the future:)  Shane & Mel

Early Jan 2016

We fully enjoyed our stay at The Westn Rusutsu Resort.  The advantage of being able to use facilities of both the resort and the tower make it a fine one stop destination.

After we left Rusutsu we continued travelling around Hokkaido for another couple of weeks, skiing at various other locations..  

Thank you for being prompt in dealing with our booking. 

I attach a video my son made of the trip which features not only Rusutsu but also other locations in Hokkaido.
