“Hospitality at Maruken Sanso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2010

We spend 3 nights at Maruken Sanso. We had the Super Deluxe room, which was very clean with 2 western beds and 1 Japanese style bed. Too bad that you don't have a shower in your room, but that is a bit common in Japan I believe... After a long day of skiing we used the "onsen" in the basement to recover! The location of the hotel is good, with only 2 to 3 minutes walk to the gondola and 5 to 7 minutes walk to the main street. They also have a computer and wifi free of charge. The breakfast and diner were more than we could have dreamed of. Every day something else and great taste! If you don't like the Japanese breakfast (which was very good) you can get a western one as well. I would like to thank Nobuko and Mamoru (the owners) for there hospitality.

We found this lodge by chance and were very happy with it. Location is one of the best in Nozawa Onsen - equidistant from restaurants, onsens and bars (4mins) and main gondola (3 mins). You can leave hire ski/snowbaord gear at the Gondola, so this 3 min walk is very easy.

The owners - Mamoru and Nobuko - are extremely kind and obliging, and speak enough English to make the stay comfortable. We had all three top story rooms - Japanese style with ensuite toilets. Very clean and nice, with good views of the valley. There are Japanese style baths in the basement, which we usually had to ourselves.

Food was very good, with breakfasts a highlight. I have skied in japanes for 20 years, and nearly all Japanese ski lodges/hotels will serve rise, fish, green tea and pickles for breakfast. These are an option here, but they will also do western style bacon and eggs, cereals and hot cocoa! There is free wireless and a computer too.

Great value for price. Highly recommended for overseas skiers/snowboarders coming to Nozawa Onsen
