There are two Prince hotels in Furano which are close neighbours. Of the two The Furano Prince is less Prince Charming and more Cinderella. The New Furano Prince has the facilities and glitz, while the older Furano Prince is the neglected step-sister. The hotel is designed around the winter ski season and offers a basic recipe of room, ski storage, communal Onsen and restaurant. The buffet breakfast was the highlight, offering a good range of choices and local produce. If you are a serious skier then this might just do it. But there are no frills. It is more dormitory than hotel. The hotel looks its age, and facilities are clearly run down and past their best. The rooms are clean and functional, but feel cramped, and with one small window, are gloomy. There is very limited storage space and none for hanging any small items of washing. The onsite coin laundry would be a busy place in peak season; there are only three machines. The bathroom is a tiny “drop in” box, and if you turn too quickly in the shower, you will be sitting in the hand basin. Furnishings and decoration throughout look well used and worn. There is wifi in public areas, but this appears patchy on the guest floors. This is a hotel in desperate need of a makeover. Cinderella needs her fairy godmother.
