What can I say about the Jon Nobi, except we loved it. Stayed for 7 nights in March 2014 and a western/japanese room. Rooms are warm and cosy with comfty beds. Especially loved the private onsens which were available for guest - fantastic for recovering after a days skiing. The Jon Nobi is in a great central village location -... More

We had a great time here at this charming authentic Ryonkan. The rooms are very traditional, although if you've not stayed in a traditional Japanese room before, are a bit of a shock first time viewing. The futon beds are laid down in the evening after arrival. I would recommend booking two rooms if you have older children, as we... More

The rooms are basic (I was in a Japanese room), but really, for a ski village that is all you need! The whole experience of tatami mats and traditional tables and chairs, it was exactly what I wanted. The rooms were warm and when I looked out my window, I got what I wanted, a perfect powdery white view of... More

This was our second stay at Jonnobi and once again we really loved it. My only criticism would be that the tatami mats in our room may have seen better days - flacked all over our clothes etc. Everything else was great - rooms spacious and comfortable, breakfast really good, bar area fun, onsens fabulous, brilliant location and all the...

My wife and I stayed for a week at the Jon Nobi, along with another pair of friends, and we loved it. Our room was very comfortable and spacious, the in-house onsens were great, and the service provided by the staff was excellent. The location was very convenient for skiing, being a short walk below the Yu Road, which connects... More

We chose Nozawa for an authentic cultural experience of Japan while taking in a ski trip. That is exactly what we got! The Ryokan Jon Nobi was our second hotel after arriving in Nozawa – the first being completely disastrous and highly unsuitable for our needs & standards (see other review). On this trip, we were a couple travelling with... More

We visited Nozawa for the first time in February 2012 and absolutely loved both the village and this hotel. We stayed at Jonnobi for a week and can not fault the place - clean and very comforatable. Loved the onsens, which were always spotless when ever we used them, which was daily. The staff, whilst communication was a little challenging... More

I was very disappointed by this place. It is nothing like it appears on the website. It feels old and cheaply redone to make it look trendy. The breakfast was miserable, looked more like leftovers from the previous day. The private onsen rooms looked filthy with towels from the previous users laying on the floor. Making the bed for them... More

Our week at the Jonnobi was great. The rooms were large and comfortable, access to the slopes was excellent and the bar was a comfortable place to relax & socialize after a mad day skiing on uncrowded slopes. We were among very few gaijing and all our encounters with the Japanese, locals or tourists, were charming We will be returning... More
