We came here in a ski tour. We stay at the west wing. Firstly, the hallway in the hotel was extremely long; the longest in all the hotels I have been to. Hate walking after a long day skiing. The double or semi double room was extremely small. Even smaller than the business hotel rooms I stayed in Tokyo. Even... More

We have a group of 4 families with about 14 persons. I stayed in Hotel Villa Ichinose before and it was great but it could not accommodate our group as it was full. At the end, we picked Prince Hotel West Wing and though I was a bit skeptical due to different reviews. Surprisingly, the West Wing 4-person Family room... More

Although we absolutely loved being able to ski-in/out, we want people to know that the only restaurant at East Wing is totally over-priced, and the last shuttle bus back if you go out to dinner elsewhere is at 7.38! so dinner is a real problem. Of course, you can walk home the 2 kms from the nearest cluster of restaurants... More

Our family of 6 booked two rooms for 3 nights in the West Wing, inclusive of breakfast. I would not have chosen the hotel given the terrible reviews but we got such a bargain rate booking through the Japanese website that staying at the Prince was a no brainer. For the 3 nights we stayed, we paid what we would... More

We stayed for 8 nights in the Prince East in February and loved it. The rooms are tired and outdated but we found that was far outweighed by many good features. The location is fantastic for ski in, ski out and in the morning only metres from the high speed gondola. The locker room is very warm, lockers are generous... More

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
