This is an institution at Hirafu hence their name Hirafutei (tei=亭) or place for a rest. Onsen is definitely the resting place for plenty of weary snow bunnies and long distance travelers. Highly recommend the rooms with private onsen with a view to the Hirafu ACE slopes.

Not our first time staying at Hirafutei, and it has been good as I remembered as a kid. The hotel is quite old I think but they managed to keep everything quite clean, the rooms are well equipped and everything works without a problem. I guess the few things I really love about this hotel are: 1. It is relatively...

Booked a room with private onsen due to large tattoo on my back that doesn't allow me in pubic onsens. Got a bus from CTS Airport right to Hirafu Welcome Centre, which was about 2-300m away from the hotel. Location was great! Right next to BangBang if you're familiar with Hirafu. That means it's pretty much close to everything -...

I've only tried the Onsen in this Hotel but its a pretty good one with different baths, cold one and laying down one....and a sauna which is good after a day skiing in the cold...can be really crowded and not the cleanest one i've been.

This was our 1st time staying in Hirafu and the 1st time staying in this hotel. We read (on tripadvisor) about the small rooms and were prepared for it (we stayed in the traditional Japanese room for 4, with no en-suite onsen). I suspect that this is the reason why several of my neighbours left some of their belongings in...

I find that the location of the hotel was quite good as everything was within walking distance. Quite a number of restaurants around the hotel. They have ski in and ski out for the hotel but we were booked by our agent to play at the Grand Hirafu ski which was 10-15 minutes walk. The room was quite small. but...

This is my first time in Niseko Prince hotel. When I checked in, I thought my room had the private onsen. Unfortunately it wasn't and I was sorely disappointed. According to the website, it boasts about the private onsen rooms and hence I was looking forward to my stay. So I tried to request for a onsen room and I...

Family prefer to have private onsen hence we booked this hotel. You may book a coach with Hokkaido Resort Liner in advance to travel from Chitose Airport to Niseko Village. The bus will arrive at Grand Hirofu Welcome Center. The hotel in about 300m downhill from the drop off point. It is easy to access with big lug gauges on...

Thank you for your staying at our hotel. It was right that you pointed out our hotel was bit old. Our hotel was built as a hotspring Ryokan style. Our room style is typical hotspring Ryokan in Japan. First, we accepted only skiers from Hokkaido areas so that they dis not have big luggeges. Nowadays, the situation is changed. Our...

Thank you for your staying at our hotel. Our in-room onsen, hotspring, is very popular among the skiers and snowboaders. It can relive the mascle ache and stiff legs. Our hotel is adjacent to the Ace family lift, so that our guests can accsess it easily. We are afraid that you were not able to enjoy a Japanese Tatami room....
