Very good location, the rooms are traditional Japanese style but a bit tired. The hotel mainly caters for large groups but accommodates singles or couples just as well. We stayed for 7 days and experienced the full weekly turn around. The food is a mixture of traditional and western food, all of acceptable quality and quantity. The only remarkable thing... More

We stayed 6 nights at Hotel Khuls. It's a great, central location and is a perfect ski-in/ski-out hotel. The "half board" includes breakfast and dinner with plenty of options and and some nights there's a delicious Japanese hot pot. The hotel has ski hire included - my only criticism is that the equipment is a little on the basic /... More

We are currently staying at this gorgeous traditional Japanese style hotel. Today we had to travel to the hospital following a skiing accident and the wonderful owner, Yamamoto San, of the hotel drove us to and from the hospital and also acted as our translator. Truly over and above the service we'd expect - but very much appreciated, especially as... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. M. Sakai on the desk was superbly capable, with excellent English and always thinking ahead about what we would need or want. Ski in and out was a joy. Onsen was clean and the open air one particularly good - having a soak whilst watching the nearby night skiing was a novel experience. Food was excellent... More

We stayed at Khuls for nine nights. We booked for six nights but the skiing conditions and hospitality was so good we stayed longer. The meals were excellent. Both Japanese and Western food. The location was perfect as we only had to ski out the door and down to the lifts. We had such a great time and are already... More

We've been heading up to Khuls most years since 2007. Safe to say that we love the place. Real ski in , ski out with and an entire floor dedicated to warm locker rooms, ski tech and hire desk. Ichinose is centrally located so over a four day stay you can ski most of the Shiga Kogen terrain as well... More

Our family of 6 was booked for a 5 night stay. My first impression of the hotel was not very good. The front desk staff was kind enough to check us in early but the room was not clean and I actually had to request that the bathroom and toilet be cleaned again as there were 'remnants' of the previous...

English comment after Japanese. 12年振りのスキーで家族で泊まりました。ホテルは昔のスキーロッジという感じ、部屋は大きな4人で利用する和室タイプで、学生の頃を思い出しました。1泊2食付き、レンタルウエアとレンタルスキーは無料でした。スノボは1500円で保証料が500円ずつ取られましたが、想像よりも遥かに安かった。食事は朝夕バイキングで、夕食は焼酎、赤ワイン、ウーロン茶のいずれかが飲み放題というサービスまでありました。スタッフはとてもわかりやすく、レンタルの仕組み、食事の進め、昼のメニューなども親切に教えてくれた。感じはとても良かったです。ただテレビがBSなしの台所に置くような小型だったのが残念でしたね。 Just reasonable hotel has classic Japanese style rooms. Staffs are kind and polite. If you park your car far from the hotel the guy take you to the parking whenever you want. We stayed 29/3/2014, the rental skis and snow wares are free of charge. You have to pay a rental snow board. The meal... More

My fiancée and I visited Japan in mid-February of 2014. After experiencing Tokyo we took the Shinkansen (bullet train) to Nagano and then a bus to Hotel Khuls. The staff were polite and helpful in all regards. Breakfast and dinner were included in the room rate (very reasonable pricing!) and were served in a buffet style. It was a bit... More
