Ventajas: Ski in ski out. Great breakfast and room.
Desventajas: Location has limited restaurants and bars..
Ventajas: Cannot beat the location! Ski in ski out and a short walk to convenience store and restaurants. The onsen with open roof sos is falls as you soak weary muscles in hot spring water is heavenly. Staff very friendly and helpful too. We were a family of 4 with two teenagers and the room was perfect. There is a lovely lounge area to chill out in if you’re a large group and want to get out of your room.
Ventajas: Amazing location, friendly staff, very traditional hotel.
Desventajas: If you're looking for a western style hotel this is not the hotel for you. But we loved embracing the Japanese culture!

Ventajas: Good for ski in and ski out
Desventajas: Location on the top of slope and a bit far from the bus station!
Ventajas: Hotel is clean and new. I went there for hiking in summer. Room got good and quiet air-con (not common in a winter resort !) and thin blanket (again, not common in a winter resort). Very good food. The kitchen bakes bread and makes yogurt! Though Hakuba is famous for winter sports, it's a good place for summer hiking. The gondolas and air-lifts are opened and take you up where temperature drops to 10 -20 to start hiking. There's lots of highlands flowers. The hotel holds a trip to star and light flies seeing every night.
Ventajas: The dinner is reasonably nice and the room is quite sizeable. The room is clean and basically the hotel provide you with all the facilities that you will need (onsen, vending machine, ice machine, washing machine, karaoke and ski rental) bearing in mind this is a small hotel with say 20 rooms in total.
Desventajas: The washing machine is quite slow and therefore took a bit too long to wash and dry the clothes (2hrs in total). I originally tried to rent the my ski and ski boots at the hotel. However, the size range of the boots available is limited so that I have to give up and walked 10 mins to the nearest ski rental shop to rent the gear. A bit disappointed.
Ventajas: Modern and comfortable room, great location for ski-in and ski-out.
Desventajas: Dinner is less attractive as compared to other spring hotels in Japan. The total experience will even be better if the dining can be improved in variety and offers more traditional Japanese food elements.
Ventajas: Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Ventajas: The hotel location is ski-in ski-out. And it's very easy to access from the ski room to the slope. All staff are nice and helpful. There is a gimmick for guest that they hv a star watching every night.
Desventajas: The only comment that I have is the meal. I stayed for 6nights 7days. There are only 2 menus for the breakfast and there are not many varieties, so that's a bit boring for us who stayed for several nights. Also it's not easy to find dinner around the area since we went in mid March. And the hotel has only 3 dinner set menus, so it's a bit boring again. And the dinner is quite expensive (~5,xxx Yen/person).
Ventajas: The location is excellent! It’s not exactly ski in ski out but the main ski field is behind the hotel which is a 10-15 metre walk so close enough. The gondola entrance is at the bottom of the hill. We shared a large Japanese style family room which was very spacious - 2 large comfortable beds plus futons for the floor. Perfect for a family or 3 adults! The staff were helpful and friendly. They even dropped us at the bus station for free when departing as it’s too close for a taxi but too far to walk with luggage in the snow! However, I speak Japanese so I can’t really say how well they speak English.

Ventajas: Good onsen, next to slopes, access to other ski resort, various food in breakfast and dinner but would be bored after 3days, western restaurant was good but a little crowded at lunch time. Spacious room and daily cleaning. Hotel transport at Nagano station was really convenient but only 2 times daily.
Desventajas: Not enough chair at ski room for changing boots. Children playground could be made bigger so as to become a family ski resort.
Ventajas: Breakfast and dinner were great. Great big buffet, delicious food, something for everyone, both Japanese andWestern. It would be good to vary the dinner so that it's not the same every night. We had great room, lots of space. It felt like a safe space. The lifts queues were fast and the slopes were not busy.
Desventajas: It was quite difficult to get a quick lunch or a coffee. There was no 'On snow' food apart from one little blue van selling fries etc at the bottom. Nothing up higher on the slopes. There was only one cafe in the resort, there was always a long queue to get in and the service was really really slow. We were frustrated that as we had booked trough booking.com there was no where to add kids, we are 2 adults, 2 kids so I booked for 5 adults and when we tried to amend that later it was very very difficult and stressful. It was a big price difference. We also realised that you can get better deals on lift tickets if you have booked directly with the hotel, but you can't get that if you booked through booking.com . We missed that there was no central lounge/ foyer/ bar where you could rest between time on the snow and grab a drink or something little to eat. Once in from the snow, you needed to go straight back to your room. There was nowhere else to spend time.
Ventajas: On-mountain was very nice. The buffet was tasty and convenient. Staff was great.
Desventajas: It is a little isolated. Trading convenience for the ability to explore a little. Having said that, it was a great easy start to our trip. And a no-brained place to stay if you have young kids.
Ventajas: Bad service Not nice
Desventajas: Request later check out But they reject otherwise need to pay more charge n only for 2 hours

Ventajas: Ski-in/ski-out, breakfast/dinner buffet, good onsen, friendly staff
Desventajas: The location is somewhat isolated. There's nothing around the hotel in walking distance - no bars, cafes etc - just nothing. If you don't include breakfast/dinner into your booking - you'll have to pay around 30EUR for a dinner on the location, there's also an option to have a pasta for 10EUR starting 20:00. Pillows were goddamn hard and there are no facility in the room to dry your clothes up after skiing.
Ventajas: Great Buffet breakfast and dinner Great snow view from rooms and onsen Ski in ski out is convenient Great ski slopes
Desventajas: Limited choice of lunch that is crowded Cannot check in early Only one key available 1500 is too much for kids garden Reception area floor is quite wet
Ventajas: Onsen was amazing and the staff was very helpful. Bag service to the resort from airport and back was perfect but make sure you are sending the bags 3 days before you depart from the airport.
Desventajas: Breakfast was okay, but most of the food wasn’t great. Dinner buffet incredibly overpriced and definitely not worth the money. Drive to anywhere else to get dinner.
Ventajas: Taitami bed was great Breakfast buffet is good Step straight onto the snow
Desventajas: No apres bar
Ventajas: The room was a good size. There was a sitting area we were able to use to lay out our luggage and still sit around the table for snacks. Room also came with a water heater/warmer. (Not the regular kettle.) Also, the onsen was a good size with multiple pools, sauna, and steam room.
Desventajas: There were two occupants in the room, but we were only given one key. Granted, I didn’t ask for a second, but isn’t it the norm to give every occupant a key?

Ventajas: Scenic setting.
Desventajas: In considerable need of a refresh. No bar or apre.

Ventajas: - excellent heater , you could be in your undies all night even if there's a blizzard outside - a safe was available in each room for your peace of mind - great onsen / shower/ sauna area - bed was pretty comfy but the pillow was too thin
Desventajas: - I paid like USD 300 for a room with 3 beds, I guess the price seemed right but way too pricey for one person. - breakfast was way too Japanese, I prefer western ones - too far from ski lift, you have to walk down a slop for around 10 min to get to the ski lift at Tsugai Bar.
Ventajas: The evening meals were superb
Desventajas: No western breakfast - only Japanese breakfast which is difficult for Westerners.
Ventajas: Staff were excellent and some spoke English - they were extremely accommodating. The hotel was only about 50 metres to the Condola - so easy to get. The room was comfortable and warm - great hot water in the shower. We opted for the breakfast and dinner package - very Japanese and highly recommend it. Lots of convience stores and ski hire places right outside the door. There was even a ski hire place in the basement of the hotel.
Desventajas: Pillows were a bit odd - sort of a crunchy feel but that could be a Japanese thing. They had a smoking area downstairs at a sort of smoke capturing vent which did not work - the cigarette smoke could be smelt all through the foyer area - but the dining room and our room was not affected. The decor in the foyer is odd and the area is a bit untidy but for the price the hotel was great and so close to the Condola and ski lift chairs.

Ventajas: Amazing hot pot dinners. And incredibly accommodating staff that even gave me a lift to the bus stop
Desventajas: That I had to leave
Ventajas: Staff were absolutely excellent in assisting us. We missed the last bus from Nagano to Tsugaike Kogen and they picked us up from Happo One. Furthermore they dropped us to a station nearby on checkout. Little English, but helped greatly. Rooms were modest and clean Right next to the ski resort too.
