Stayed here with family in a three bedroom apartment. Very well equipped, warm and had everything you need for a week skiing. Heated ski storage at ground level but we opted to keep our kit up at the ski gondola station for no additional charge. It's only a ten minute walk away and you can ski back via a back... More

We have stayed at Yama Shizen East for 5 nights. We had a three bedroom condo. It was very spacious and very clean. Kitchen was very well equipped and as we had the corner room, the view was very nice. The only slight problem there was the shared bathroom was always very wet on the after someone had showered as...

Our family of seven have just spent another great skiing holiday in Niseko. Like last year, we stayed at Yama Shizen, close to Grand Hirafu Gondolas and to restaurants and bars. We will be back again!

This is my first time going to hokkaido resorts with friends. The apartment has all the equipment for dinning and laundry. There are common ski / board room and boots room. The location is close to the main street and gondola station. The staff are very kind to help with the package deliveries and rentals. Very recommend for non-Japanese visitors.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, a small group of adults and it was great. We were skiing in Feb 2014 and found the apartment was well located and set up for skiers and snow boarders. We had to walk to the chairlift but once you get used to it, it's fine. The apartments are new and well fit... More

My husband and I booked this apartment in this summer which is their slow season(summer for no snow skiing) for 2 nights. The room is with no air-con and no window to open. We could only open the door at the balcony which has no lock to secure us during the night. It took the hotel staff 1.5 hours to... More

Lovely 3 bed apartment with several bathrooms. Excellent location near chair lifts. Close to many good restaurants and coffee shops. Ski drying room downstairs and a small cafe. Great balcony with hot tub. Big kitchen to cool meals etc. Would recommend.

We had a good stay. The hotel offers free pick up and drop off service from the train stations. Helpful staff, a washing machine and dryer in your room, good location and close to bus stops, spacious accommodation and decent breakfast. This place seems to have a good combination of everything. On a clear day, you may see mountain views... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in a studio. Everything was good and the staffs were very helpful. The room has a decent size, bigger than average Japanese hotel rooms, and well equipped. It's good that they have English channels so we could have sth to do when it's cold outside. Hotel offers shuttles to all key transportation... More

Stayed in Yama again this year and was not disappointed. Great ski in location, new cafe in lobby for the early coffee, ski room and drying room really good. Apartment large, very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Also a great upper village location. Will definitely be back there. Snowfall of 3+ meters over the 2 weeks we were there was... More
