We got a western style room on a weekday during the summer. The weather was extremely cool and wonderful for hot springs at this time of year. The staff was hospitable and very flexible with request. As with other reviewers the natural onsen is across the street and a normal bath spa was in the hotel. The breakfast is more... More

Went with friends for skiing, great resort. We got a Japanese style room , which was HUGE! Even if most of the staff couldn't speak English, they're still very nice and hospitable. Breakfast was so so... Internal Onsen was nice and clean... natural onsen was outside the hotel. You need to cross the road.. Looks beautiful tho...

Zao itself is a very beautiful place and heaven for ski. I chose this hotel because it has its own onsen. The onsen that you have to walk outside the hotel is good. However, don't know why the changing areas of the onsen is very cold. Anyway, with the price of the hotel, I think the hotel facilities, services and... More

Overall our stay in Zao Shiki No was pretty nice. Onsen was good, meals was of very good quality and staffs were nice and could speak english too. We were staying in a western room. It was small but enough for us. Hotel is about 5 to 8 mins walk from the cabler car. Nothing bad but nothing special too.

My family and I spent 2 nights in this hotel during our skiing trip in Zao. The hotel package, like other Japanese hotels, included breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was very good with a lot of choices, including western and Japanese style. The Japanese set dinner was also good and tasty. The hotel had ski locker facilities for guests in... More
