We loved our visit to Madarao. We didn't actually stay at Hotel Madarao but at their nearby hotel - Hotel Monaile. The Staff where very accommodating in both hotels as we used the free shuttle bus quite a bit to use the other hotels facilities! The Furasato course is a must for dinner! Torro went above and beyond to make... More

We loved our visit to Madarao. We didn't actually stay at Hotel Madarao but at their nearby hotel - Hotel Monaile. However, our check-in was handled there. Their wonderful staff looked after our luggage until our rooms at our hotel were ready. Assisted us with our luggage and transfer to Hotel Monaile. We regularly dined at Hotel Madarao for dinner...

The resort is perfectly located close to the main slopes, bus stops and the small number of restaurants located nearby. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The rooms are small ( arent they all in Japan ) but this... More

We stayed 3 nights at Madarao Kogen Hotel, from 26-29 Dec 2012. We enjoyed a very spacious room with a gorgeous view of the ski slopes. The hotel is well-located with the bus-stop for buses to Iiyama city barely 20 steps down the road, and a few interesting dining places within a 5-minute stroll. On the downside, there is no...

For 5,400 yen per person (group of 3), this place was very good value and it exceeded my expectations. You can ski right out of the hotel and onto the slopes which is very convenient. Our Japanese style room was adequate and comfortable (although the traditional Japanese pillows are very hard). There is a nice indoor/outdor onsen (public bath) with... More
