“old and dilapidated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Travel agent booked the wrong hotel - wanted New Furano Prince and got Furano Prince instead, was too disappointed to take pix. Place was difficult to navigate to.

Rooms were very old, and extremely small, so were the beds, of all the twin rooms booked on our trip, this had the smallest bed (plain single instead of super single) so it was difficult for 2A2C to sleep comfortably (kids kept falling off)

The only saving grace was a young gentleman at the reception who spoke exceptionally good fluent english and was extremely helpful - with tips on sightseeing and helping us to navigate and check map code/telephone numbers. Thumbs up for his service!

Overall, I'd definitely go for New Prince hotel instead. They should renovate or rebuild this place entirely!

Stayed here for 3 nights and used it as a base to tour Furano, Biei and Asahikawa area. The location is not bad as there are local eateries nearby and thus, convenient to look for dinner.
The room looks like a 3 star business hotel and probably falls short of a prince hotel as I expect a prince hotel to be a 4 star hotel.

We were forced to stay here due to Natulux being full. Honestly speaking, we would not have selected this hotel otherwise.

We stayed in a twin room which appeared to be relatively clean...until we examined the bathroom. There was a line of green mould surrounding the top wall area of the bathtub, and when we asked the front desk whether we could change rooms, we were told that we had secured the very last available room. The staff on service during our stay could barely converse in English. However to their credit, they tried their very best to understand what we meant and to best accommodate our other needs.

According to other travellers, the New Furano Prince is more recommended than this original Prince Hotel.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the annexe area as there is no lift - only stairs -meaning the poor bell boy would...

We had our third stay in this hotel last month and like our previous two stays, we were in Furano to have fun in the snow. We were not disappointed! There have been no significant changes to the hotel since we first visited in 2008 but the hotel is very comfortable, with extremely comfortable beds. Yes, the rooms are small by Western standards but you expect that in most Japanese hotels. This time we stayed on the second floor of the hotel (in the annex) and those rooms are actually larger. The bathrooms however, are tiny. We love that breakfast is included, as are our lift passes and the biggest bonus for us is that the hotel is truly a ski in/ski out hotel. We love the downstairs locker room where all our ski gear can be stored and dried overnight. There are the usual vending machines so you can stop between runs for a quick warm or cold drink. The public baths are not true onsen, but are a wonderful opportunity to rest up and soak after a long day on the snow. This hotel (as opposed to the New Furano Prince Hotel) is located on the Kitanomine side of the mountain and has access to many more local eateries within walking distance and it's a wonderful opportunity to support local business in the area. One improvement since our last visit in 2010, is that the hotel now has free wi-fi in the lobby and that proved very useful. The hotel decor is a little tired and could do with a refresh but it is by no means dirty. We love that the hotel is quiet and its location is its biggest asset. I am sure we will come back to Furano and if we do, we will seek out the Furano Prince Hotel to stay at again. If you are coming to Furano for the snow, you will not be disappointed with extremely dry powder and an abundance of it. The two ski areas are connected and there is a wide variety of terrain suitable for all ages and abilities and the area is well serviced by chairs, a gondola and a ropeway. The terrain is well groomed, however the resort now leave areas ungroomed for those people seeking a powder experience and have become a little more relaxed about skiing off-piste although technically it is not allowed.

We paid 5500 pp B&B in a triple. The hotel is clean and the staff is very helpful. There is no free wifi in the hotel but there is free internet in the lobby if you have a ethernet plug. The only thing which could be better would be a free bus service to town.

The hotel has indoor onsen and the rooms came well stocked with razors, tooth brushes as normal in japan. We got a fridge in the room. It is a 5-10 min walk from the closest restaurants and bars.

The breakfast was very good, with good selection of Japaneese and Western choices.
