I chose this hotel as we were on a budget. Two nights during peak season would set me back around 150.000 yen. This hotel was below 60.000 yen for three nights which was the reason I reserved immediately without checking the reviews. Afterwards I started reading the reviews and then the worries started to grow... shared toilets, dirty, etc , were keywords which popped up in most reviews. When we arrived we were met by a polite Japanese person who checked us in. There is no parking, but next to the hotel is a snowfree parking for 1000 yen a night. The room was spacious and really nice and warm. It's a bit old, but nothing to complain about. We had a family room with toilet and shower and bath. The toilet and the bath unit are together so this was a little inconvenient for a family of 5...but certainly not 100.000 yen worth of inconvenience. We had a double bed for the parents which was comfortable, we had a bunk bed for two kids, but the upper bed was too noisy, so we took the mattress and put it on the ground. The third bed was a sleeping sofa which was not comfortable due to a hard part which splits the sofa/bed in the middle. But we were all dead tired, so we slept through all incomfort. In the morning we had a free breakfast with toast and jam, cereals and boiled eggs. The area is very nice and lively and it's really in front of happo gondola. My family are all boarders though so we drove to hakuba 47 which is a 10 minute drive. All in all, we had a great time, thanks!
