Like most hotels in Japan this one is in need of updating to say the least. The price is extortionate considering the tiny rooms and non existent service. All the food is buffet style in the west wing and they won't even enter your room to clean or empty bins unless you've been there four nights. Don't get your hopes...

If you are here just for the skiing, then this is a good place to stay. Easy access to the lifts, good ski rental options, on site storage for your ski gear and equipment and relatively friendly staff. There are three buildings and while you could walk to each, they are quite a distance away from each other. We stayed...

We knew the Prince had received poor previous write-ups so we were not expecting too much. We found the staff absolutely delightful, very warm and polite. We spent four nights at South Wind then five at West Wing. The hotel smelt, the rooms were tiny and this wouldn't have been such an issue if there were hooks to hang up...

Just returned from there. It is best for ski stay. My friend said it is an upgraded hostel but low-end hotel. Overall room size is acceptable and just-fit for purpose. 4 single sofa beds. The back support is a full length cabinet. Under each bed, there are two A3 size plastic boxes for storage in addition to room for a...

I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. We really enjoyed our holiday, but a few things disappointed me. We stayed in the West Building, the 3 wings are operated fairly independently (e.g. South/East can't use the public baths at West), and they're about 5-10 minutes walk apart. West is the closest to Ichinose, then South and then East, which...

We stayed in the West wing for 6 nights in late January 2017. I would recommend staying in other smaller hotels rather than Prince. Pros: - Good ski-in ski-out property. You literally just need to ski 1 min downhill to the #2 high-speed quad. Cons: - Extremely small and run-down rooms. Even by Japanese standard. I've stayed in Prince Furano,...

This hotel sits at west side of the largest ski area in Japan. Snow conditions in Jan this year are excellent. Peak is about 2000m high commanding superb views of the Nagano prefecture. Trails mainly intermediate levels and ski schools are shielded due to limited access, facilities and eateries. Free shuttle bus available for skiers. But the hotel property is...

Great accom cheap lunch! But the dinner is 4000yen and almost more then a night of accom! We stayed in west and it was great but south and east have direct access to the gondolas. Definitely In the best part of shiga!

In general, I think shiga kogen might be more connected in terms of ski slopes than Hakuba, but I'd definitely not recommend coming here for skiing. The restaurant choices are limited, transportation is limited, and hotels are very spread out. i.e. there's no town to walk into after skiing to eat, drink, onsen, etc. For the hotel, the meals were...

I stayed here with my Daughter for a few days in January, the location is great, the snow was even better, The Hotel was fine for what it is, a place to sleep after a day on the slopes, the places to eat are limited, the food is Ok, just about. For the accomodation we had a family room that...
