Very comfortable overall. Had 6 people in one apartment. Not crowded at all. Only negative feedback is that the pillows were hard or dead. Short walk to the ski lifts. Close to shops and restaurants. Self contained.

We stayed hear for a few weeks with a 1 year old and family. Was perfect and the staff are more then happy to accommodate anything you ask so they where amazing. You can ski in but need to make your own track. To get on the mountain is about a 150 mtr walk so not bad at all. Would... More

I have been going to Yama Shizen with my family and friends for the last 10 years and everyone is always impressed and has a good experience. HT do a very good job keeping everything organised and in order and any problems are attended to in short order. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and everything works.

Shared a 3-bedroom apartment between 2 families for 7 nights - it was bigger than each of our houses! Really loved it, was the best part of our trip. We were in 304 West, which was a 2-br apartment combined with a studio apartment to make 3-br. It was fantastic for our needs, as we were two couples with 3... More

Great cosy rooms and living rooms and friendly staff. Within walking distance from most eateries. Only grip is the distance from the ski area, it is at least a good 15 to 20 minutes walk. There are shuttle buses running around the area but unfortunately there seemed to be a period from 12noon to 2pm which they are not running.... More

I have stayed at the Yama Shizen for the past 3 winter seasons and have loved each stay. This year (January 2016) I stayed with my wife, two adult sons and their partner in 204 East. This is a 3-bedroom 3-bathroom unit. It consists of a main flat with 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms (one with bath/shower and the other with a... More

Spent 5 nights in room 502 of Yama Shizen East, and could not find anything to complain about. Rooms are excellent, spacious, clean and tidy, and the view from the lounge room is excellent. Staff have been nothing but friendly and the proximity to the ski fields and downtown is excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in Niseko this week and went with another group of friends. Their travel agent recommended Yama Shizen so we just decided to do the same. We had a small studio room (201B) in the East Building. The building is well designed and the room is perfectly functional. My son and I shared the room and while the beds... More

This was my fourth time staying at Yama Shizen and it is one of my favorite places in Niseko with a perfect combination of convenience to the slopes and a quick walk to the restaurants and lower village.
