We were only supposed to stay one week but have extended to just over four weeks, feels like home away from home. We think it’s our new favourite place to stay in Hirafu. I’m almost a bit hesitant to post this because I don’t want people to know about it but the rating has been earned! Affordable and the location is unbeatable. This is truly ski-in ski-out. Not even 2 minutes from the lift. Intermediates may be annoyed about several lift connections to get to the top (especially on powder days the queues in Hirafu have become annoyingly long in the last few years). Positioned well, right in the centre of all the mountains, making it easy to get to all the other areas like Hanazona and Hilton side. No gondola so be prepared to brace the wind to get up. However, the location is still so worth it. Just steps from main Hirafu intersection, making it so easy to grab groceries or go to good restaurants. Kitchen is very well equipped. If you cook, you’ll know that having an oven is a GAME CHANGER. This really tops my reasons not to stay at other competitors. Front desk is friendly and helpful. Lockers are spacious. Not a lot of room to put on boots inside the locker room but they have two extra benches in the hall. NBS rental and ski school team at the lowest level were also excellent. Our child just walked downstairs for lessons every morning. This was such a relief as walking anywhere with a toddler in full ski gear with equipment is no joke. Housekeeping only comes every other day so the floor gets a bit dirty with children but they have a vacuum cleaner in the room ready to use at any time. The IKEA stool is SO handy with a child. Very thoughtful. We loved having a private snowy balcony all to ourselves.

Great location beside Ace chairlift.. This is our 3rd time at Allen Ridge. We had both 3 & 2 bedroom apartments -both very spacious well furnished clean and comfortable for 14 family members. Convenient ski lockers in ground floor and has onsite ski rentals Would return again but Niseko is now getting expensive due exchange rates

The location of the apartment was excellent as it was ski in and ski out. The view from the apartment was beautiful. It was such a lovely apartment to stay in and just chill. The service was friendly and so helpful. Would recommend this apartment. Made the holiday so enjoyable.

Our first family ski vacation was so amazing and fun and it was mostly due to Alepen Ridge apartment. The 2 bedroom immaculately clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment was just the right size for 5 of us. But what makes this place even better is its location. Above a skii school, next to a lift and in the centre dining/shopping area. Can’t wait to go back next year!

Location is great: it is not quite ski -in and ski out but access to the lift is still reasonable. Good location for restaurants and the local institution (Seikomart). Ground floor ski lockers (no steps) is another positive. The SkiJapan front desk is a bonus: Their staff are always very helpful..
