Amazing property in a beautiful part of Hakuba at the base of the Wadano forest. Within walking distance of the Kokusai lift (but why walk, when the hotel shuttles run several trips in the morning and the afternoon to the lifts of your choice!). All in all, a beautiful property with well-appointed rooms, a great restaurant and comfortable bar, a relaxing onsen, but the stand-out point of this property is the amazingly helpful and genuinely kind staff ... nothing is too much trouble for them and Trent, Jules and Kaori are the consummate hosts. The New Year's Eve menu was sublime and the ice-bar out of the verandah was very special. We'll definitely be back ... I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Hakuba now. Raeleen

Opening of the 2012/2013 season.We understand a number of guests have been disappointed with the service they received in the opening weeks of the 2012/ 2013 season. We engaged a new management company for this season and have been badly let down by them. We became aware that we were experiencing difficulties after 28 December and one of our directors flew to Hakuba on New Year’s Eve. We then took over the running of the hotel and moved as quickly as possible to address the many issues that confronted us. We can confidently report that Double Black Hotel is now operating as advertised and is living up to all the good reviews previously posted on Trip Advisor.If you feel that you were disappointed with the service you received when on holiday with us, please contacts us and we will ensure that you are appropriately recompensed. ... more less
