Only stayed one night here. The manager was friendly and had good English. The room was basic with stained carpet and the whole place looked dreary and old and a little dirty. It would be ok for a couple of nights but I think any longer and you would be ready to get out. It was full when we were... More

We cam back to Grandpapa again after 2013 Xmas. It was still good in value and not much changed from last yr, a new restaurant is opened opposite. The only cons would be we cannot booked the room with private toilet. Or you may care about easy to hear people stepping at the stairs as it was built with wood,... More

For the price (Japanese standards), you get a decent offering from the Grand Papa. The rooms are clean, small and cosy - heater inside. The walls between bedrooms are thin so you best hope for either quiet neighbors or bring earlpugs to sleep with. Anything other than tip-toeing around late at night can be heard by adjoining rooms. The bathroom... More

Fantastic pension, truly saved me from the awful hirafu backpackers. I came along desperate to stay and they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, and half the price too! Very cosy, staff are impeccable, breakfast great! The lounge has a lovely fireplace to relax in front of, freebies abound, tea and cakes, toiletries, fresh towels piled high. Highly recommended...pls... More

I really want to thank Mr. Kohei Nikahara and Ms. Kyoko for making our long weekend stay in Niseko a truly wonderful visit. Kohei-san replied to all my emails promptly so matter how detailed my questions were. He helped me understand all the logistics, so travel to and from the pension went smoothly. Since I was leading our "gang," I... More

Reasonable walking distance from places to eat The bad bits I love using the public baths in all the pensions I have stayed at, but the one at Grandpapa was very disappointing. It was much much smaller than... More

We had a great time at Grandpapa's in Feb 2014. We had a quad loft room, which was big enough for the four of us (four blokes on a ski trip). The breakfasts are good, but be on time (8am means 8am, if you get there at 0810, your meal will be on the table getting cold). The staff are... More
