This apartment complex is literally metres from the chairlift for true ski in out access. With a rental store in the basement and offering lockers for guest, this is a great place to stay whilst in Niseko. Plus it is close to all the bars abd restaurants as well. Rooms are well appointed and very simple modern design. The only... More

Plus the view - literally sleeping on the slope. Thank you Belinda, Ben - highly appreciated ! :) In my perception the place is stunning, plus those warm japanese toilets... More

The most convenient accomodation with the number one asset being the ski in ski out location, even better for families because it's close to the Ace Family Chairlift. We stayed in the three bedroom apartment and I must say it is more luxurious than anywhere I've ever stayed, with fancy toilet seats that we don't have in Australia - I... More

We were a party of six and had a 3-bed apartment facing Mt Yotei. Great location with ski in and ski out, and close to heaps of restaurants, etc. Convenient to have the rental in the basement along with ski lockers. The rooms themselves are nicely done and friendly Ski Japan staff on the front desk were always happy to... More

The best is still the conventient ski in ski out condition. Although the family chair lift was super crowded during Chinese New Year time. It took 20+ minutes. But once you go up, we hoped on other lifts and go around. Alpen Ridge two bedroom apartment is decent sized with contemporary decoration.

This is the 4th time to Niseko and our 3rd stay at the Alpen Ridge - each time we book through Polly Po at SkiJapan. Polly is excellent, she arranges everything (except flights) from the moment we arrive in Sapporo to the time we leave (private bus transfer etc). The Alpen Ridge has to be the best option in Niseko,... More

The Milk Kobo sweets they sell at their cafe are to die for, they are so incredibly good! Try the cheese cake, it will change your life! Also if you have a chance, go to the actual Milk Kobo as they have even more range, the cream puffs are apparently the best thing to have
