Stayed at the East Wing. This was the worst Prince Hotel I had ever stayed at in a ski resort. Many of the front desk staff were rude and spoke limited English. There was only one restaurant serving mediocre food and charging high prices (2,200 yen for breakfast and 10,000 yen for dinner). The room was large but dated and... More

I have booked 2 rooms for 2 adults and 2 kids including breakfast for 5 nights. Upon arrival, a Japanese front desk women checked in for us. She was not very helpful and could only speak Japanese. Since we understand Japanese, we did not mind being served in Japanese. However, she was not very helpful and apparently not too eager... More

This is a huge, impersonal complex whose only merit is to be a ski-out ski-in establishment. Apart from this, this place has no qualities. The overall decor is basic (and has an army barracks feel to it) and so are the small single bed rooms which during our 2 night/ 3 day stay where never cleaned. Wifi is available only... More

I recently stayed in the East Wing with 9 others on a ski trip. The main thing we all got caught out on was that the Prince Hotel ' Wings' ( West South and East) are all completely separate buildings and actually being a bus trip away from each other. The East Wing Hotel was quite comfortable to stay in,... More

If you would like to spend less and stay in a ski-in ski-out hotel, this is the place. Room: We stayed in a four-bedroom of West Building. It's very very small, but there are two containers under each bed, and a space to put one luggage. The bed can also be pulled out when you're ready to sleep. Compliment toothbrush... More

As with most other reviews my experience was not that different. The Skiing is amazing, you can not ski all the runs in a week let alone a weekend. The views are amazing and there are plenty of runs no matter your ski experience. The hotel was average at best. The beds are hard, the pillows are not comfortable at... More

Firstly, I must say the skiing and boarding in Shiga Kogen is AMAZING! The Prince Hotel though was appalling - accomadation was basic, no Wi-Fi in rooms. The only options to eat in the hotel (which is not close to any other food options, other than a Chinese place that also belongs to the hotel) was $20 p/person for a... More

If you go to restaurant after 12.30pm, all the good items are taken. Had to pay ¥100 extra to change meal choice as original choice was sold out. Poor customer service. Would not go back here again to eat lunch!

We stayed in the west wing for 6 nights. Great Ski in/out. Pick up your gear from the rental shop in the lobby walk a few metres to your locker then out the door and your on the slopes. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather. Lots of runs to choose from, weekdays were great everyone was spread out... More

Just back from a three week tour in Japan. Besides Tokyo, Hiroshima and Kyoto we also visited all the best ski resorts in Japan. Niseko, Rusutsu, Furano, Tomamu, Hakuba and also Shiga. Subsequently I stayed at A LOT of different hotels - and can really compare. The Prince in Shiga was by far the worst of them all, and at... More
