“Excellent location!”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

I booked through Japan Powder (excellent tour company to book with btw!), I was after affordable hotel with good location and they recommended hotel Chalet. The rooms a extremely clean and tidy , worn out furnishing but this didn't really matter. The bed was a bit too hard too sleep however it is advertised as japanese bed which generally means hard mattress (apparently good for u back). I received every day new hot water thermo and green tea with biscuit which was excellent. After exhausting day it was really nice to come back and find hot water for tea. The bed got done every second day but the rubbish and hot water was done daily. The breakfast was eggs with ham or sausages, yogurt, bread and small bowl of salad with tea or coffee. One morning I req Japanese breakfast which was nice (rice, fried salmon, prickles, miso soup and rice, mental note that u cannot have coffee with this option unless perhaps req one day prior. The location is excellent , next to Gorya ski lifts which connects to Hakuba 47 as well. As a nightlife there isn't anything to do however I often found myself at Aqua Alpine Hotel for dinner and wine (wine list there is amazing and prices a affordable). Highly recommended ! Overall I was really happy with the accommodation and the staff was really nice and helpful. Ski gear I was able to leave downstairs where it would be dry by the morning. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who is looking for affordable hotel with good location.

Stayed here last week 1/1/2013 and had an amazing experience. The people are very welcoming, the chalet is 5min walk to the chair lifts on hakuba goryu. The owners son will serve you each morning for breakfast and is a really accommodating, he is very happy to strike up a conversation and we often found we could speak to him about anything. The Japanese breakfast is home cooked from family recipes, the whole hotel is brilliant. It has a really nice onsen down stairs, and very comfortable rooms.

Room Tip: We had a room looking over the river, it was the best view when it was snowing.

Reviewed 8 January 2013

Stayed over the New Year 2012/2013 for eight nights. We found the chalet warm, comfortable and in a great position 50 metres from the lift. You could even ski home if you are game enough to ski over the main road (we didn't). The staff / owners were extremely friendly although no one really spoke English.

Room 407 consisted a lobby/entry, bathroom and two bedrooms that was perfect for two adults and three kids.

Room 401 is also spacious and well suited to four persons.

The breakfast was a combination of Japanese/English although the staff tried to ensure we were always well catered.

If you want a geniune ski lodge in a great position in Hakuba, that is close to all ammenties and has a quaint atmosphere that is surrounded by Japanese culture, this is the ideal place.

I highly recommend the Australian company Japan Powder (based on the Gold Coast) to organise the trip, their ground support was superb.
