    Rooms are clean and staff are friendly, but the rooms are a bit small. Also, the cafe used to open for dinner but is now closed. It would be good if the cafe can be re-opened for dinner or at least for drinks so that friends can gather for chit-chat after skiing.

    Good value for $$$

    Budget friendly hotel just on the outskirts of the busy ski town Grand Hirafu. Rooms are incredibly small and amenities are basic. But you get what you paid for. Clean and safe. Free shuttles take you into town and to the ski lifts. Staff is friendly and speak English, as most employees are Australian( I think). From desk gave us late check out as we waited for our bus to take us to the train station. Overall, good value and great experience staying in this ski area.
