First impression of the room was the funky smell emanating from the bathroom. And it begins there. The room was bare with out any decor save the pink threadbare curtains. The bath room was the smallest I've seen in japan, in which a shower is possible if you don' mind cleaning yourself sideways. Shower curtains have a healthy mould colony slowly changing the mood of the room.

The hotel is not old but there are signs of wear and tear. Cracked wall paper and smashed lights to off coloured fixtures. A woman's touch lacking in all aspects.

On the plus side the heating worked well so the room was warm and the buffet breakfast was decent. Wifi was patchy.

Location in central to all attractions and major transport routes.

The owners were friendly but seemed to lack expertise in running a hotel ie we stayed 10 nights and not once was the room cleaned or the sheets and towels replaced. A bit dusty by day 8 nearly incited my wife to borrow a vacuum...

We had been advised that the management has changed since the previous not-so-good reviews.
We are a family and had 2 rooms on the one floor, each with their own bathroom. The rooms were basic, a bit worn, but warm and comfy, and there was plenty of hot water. There was no daily room service, but good value for a ski town. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel has a drying room (although we didn't use it) and a common room.
Breakfast was plentiful and varied each day. We didn't have dinner there, although they do a buffet dinner.
The location (near Nakao bus stop) is a short walk to main part of town where there are lots of restaurants. It is also a short uphill walk to the Karasawa area lifts.
Wifi was supposed to be available but it was very unreliable.

“It depends if you want a private bathroom or shared, western beds or futons on tatami. We were on level 3 facing the main street, but it was still very quiet. I think smoking areas should be away from rooms ... preferably on the street. Additional towels, hairdryers etc are available - no problem.”
