“Great value for money and lovely people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We just recently stayed for a skiing break over Chinese New Year at the Echo Hotel. We really enjoyed it. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Great service: I forgot some very important documents in the room and they directly mailed them to me. This does not happen every day.

Otherwise, the deluxe rooms are very spacious and clean. The Western breakfast was good.
All in all, it was a beautiful holiday and we would go back to the Echo Hotel any time.

We stayed at the echo hotel for a week in December, just as the season started. We arrived at midnight and were greeted on arrival by Ali and told we were upgraded to a condo.
The staff were really nice and helpful, the condo itself was so great only thing was the pool table above us at night time. You could hear every ball.
I would absolutely stay at echo again.

Hi Kelly A, Thank you for staying with us in Feb 2013 which was our first season running Echo Hotel. We are glad you enjoyed the upgrade to a condo for your stay. We note your comments on the pool table and you will be glad to know that we had the carpet replaced prior to the 2014 season with thick underlay sounding proofing any noise heard from the pool table. We look forward to having you stay with us again. Kind regards Hotel Management.

5 of 5 stars

my son and I had a thought, let ski japan,Hakuba,as the family has done the Canada thing,well go to Japan.As I have planned many trips before, and working for Qantas to many years ,I wasnt really looking forward to planning transfers,hotel booking ski passes etc.at this point 4 other member had said yes to Japan,now a party of 6.from the first phone call to Snowbeds Travel and Talking to Tina,every part of the trip was made so easy.The Knowledge of the area is second to none.We deceide on a small self contained 3bedroom cabin,50 metres from Snowbeds hotel,100 from the ski bus stop.Transfers were booked,7day ski passes booked,this is to easy ,While snowbeds may only be a small travel company they they have a range of accommodation to suit everyone,backpackers,cabins to hotel,But most importantly with the personal touch.
In Hakuba We were met by Mitch, taken to our cabin for the next 7day ,and let loose,free wifi so the kids we happy.At one point 2 of our party wanted to do the monkey tour,Mitch no one for doing things later,booked the bus tour and even a taxi to pick them up and return to the cabin,again all done with no fuss.This was more like being on holidays with friends that just happen to own and run a travel company.So to Mitch and Tina and all the staff at Snowbeds Travel again many thanks from the Oneils ratpack we already planning to do this again.

We had a great trip – Echo Hotel was great, the room (2 bed family apartment) was really spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were lovely. Steve and Ali especially went out of their way to make sure everything was OK for us. Having the shuttles to the resorts right outside was very convenient and there were a lot of places to eat close by that worked for us.

We loved our stay at the Echo Hotel in the two bedroom condo on the top floor with fantastic views of the town are of echoland. The staff were very nice and so helpful with making sure we were okay. We arrived early in the morning and they stayed awake to greet us and took us to meet our tour to the Fire Festival and the bus station home. The condo was very spacious by Japanese standards and had the largest walk in wardrobe I have ever seen. The hotel is across the road from the weather station bus stop for the free buses to any ski field you wish to visit in the hakuba area. It snowed every day we were there and the best powder snow for skiing. There was a laundrumat downstairs and lots of restaurants within walking distance and a great store called Jah Jah for milk bread and groceries open all the time. We will definitely be back, loved the service, and skiing.

A great hotel to stay in and in the centre of Echo village. The staff were really friendly and acting almost like family.
The breakfast was split between Japanese and Western food and were well presented and tasted really good.
The room were clean and tidy and everything you would expect from a hotel in Japan
The hotel on a whole was great and I cannot find anything to complain about, except maybe they had no WIFI but they had a computer with free internet.

The lady at the hotel was sooooooo nice.....
she offered to take us to any restaurant around town and offered to drive us to the station on our departure.... great service...

really felt like she was concerned for us when it snowed heavily...

room was very large and very clean... onsen was very nice and good that they cater for a more western onsen style allowing private bathing times

highly reccommended
