We booked to stay here after the advertised Ski-In and Ski-Out, however we soon regretted it. The hotel itself is very pricey (not surprised given how new it was and the location). The decor was nice and modern but had a slightly cheap feel to it. The staff were all friendly (in the typical Niseko fashion) however the main downfall was the noise. If you are a late riser, AVOID the rooms facing the slope. There are 3 ski schools that congregate and also the location at the bottom of the family run makes for it to be a huge gathering area for people. It takes around 20 minutes to even get on a lift, my advice is book a place closer to the Centre 4 or just walk up there - you'll get to the slopes much quicker.

As everyone knows, the Corona Virus has affected much of Asia. Our group of 19 persons had planned a ski trip in March 2020 to Niseko and had paid reservations to stay at AYA Niseko. The situation with the Corona Virus had become very serious and we decided to cancel our ski trip. When we called to cancel the trip AYA Niseko was very understanding about the situation and gave us a 100% full refund. It was this kind of customer service that will make me want to stay in the hotel in the future. Thank you AYA Niseko team for your understanding. We look forward to staying with you next year and hope for your teams safety during this epidemic.

I recently stayed for a week at Aya with my family. Overall the hotel is good especially the location to the slopes and proximity to great options to eat. However the inability to moderate the in room heating ( other than opening a small window) was infuriating! This is a major oversight to the design of the building....This impacted on the comfort level of the fully enclosed 2nd bedroom ( no windows) giving it a tomb like feeling. Very unpleasant and claustrophobic. Another annoyance was the time our room was serviced. We would return from skiing at 4pm and the room was how it was left earlier in the day. This occurred 5/7 days. A knock on the door after this time when you’d like to settle in for the night is not welcome. Aya needs to tune this aspect up. Ginger downstairs was good, contrary to what others say. I believe their coffee was excellent and was the ski valet

We booked AYA for it's location & the fact that it is ski in ski out. It is quite pricey but we weren't disappointed. Ski Valet is priceless. Fab location near to ski lift & all that Niseko has to offer is within walking distance. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean with a small kitchenette & the very large bed was comfy. I am a very light sleeper & found the rooms to be quiet. We booked a private Onsen which is lovely but again quite pricey. The only down side was that it looked out on to a courtyard which had some rubbish in it (paper & water bottles). A quick clean-up needed! We only ate at the restaurant Ginger once & weren't overly impressed especially after eating in some fantastic spots in town. Also didn't like the fact that the 'cooks' seemed to be nibbling on food in full view of us. Not a good look. All in all just a couple of gripes but we enjoyed our stay. It was all about location for us & AYA delivers on that. Would stay here again & recommend to others.

The Aya is a phenomenal place to stay. The location - ski in/out and with the kids GoSnow ski school located on the property - cannot be beat. Our room was spacious and comfortable for a family of four, including a kitchenette that worked great for breakfasts. The in-room laundry is also a great feature. The Aya’s family onsen was a particularly nice treat each night.
