The hotel property is a bit shabby at the edges with peeling wall paper, stained carpets, and parts of the hotel cordoned off from what knows, but Mr. Masa takes all the stars for making my stay an enjoyable one. While the rooms a bit run down the basics are still there: clean toilet, hot showers, and a warm bed....

We booked quite late over Chinese New Year and with a family of four found options limited without being ridiculously expensive. Although Hotel Cultured is a backpacker style hotel, it also has two apartments on the top floor. We stayed in the two bedroom one and it is definitely a step up from the standard rooms (actually many steps up)....

Hotel Cultured is a utilitarian sort of place made very pleasant by the manager, Masa. He is a kind, gentle man who has great patience with the sort of questions that tourists like me seem to ask. He offers a great level of service and I hope the hotel owner realises how important he is to overcoming some problems with...

We stayed in this hotel during January 2015 and were pleasantly surprised at this comfortable economical hotel. Although it's exterior looks rather like a Ukrainian bunker, lol, it does have a nice interior! The rooms were adequate with good heating and there was good ski storage in the basement. Complimentary wifi in the foyer was helpful and allowed me access...

The rooms were warm, as were the showers. There was enough space for our bags and snow gear. The staff were friendly and helpful. Modest but good. I would stay here again but if you are looking for luxury or close proximity to the main restaurant/shop area, I would advise maybe going elsewhere.

We stayed at Hotel Cultured in January 2015. The hotel was very comfortable, clean, conveniently located and had good heating. The complimentary breakfast was also very good. However, the highlight by far was the exceptional service provided by the manager; he assisted with extremely useful information, tips on the best places to ski and eat, options for gear hire and...

The two most important things a hotel in Hakuba must have during winter are excellent bedroom heating and hot showers - hotel cultured had both so my stay was comfortable! The morning breakfast was terrible (but served by a very cute old man), the heating in the foyer was terrible and there is only someone on reception for part of...

The Hotel Cultured provided a fantastic, little, cosy apartment for my 2 Aussie mates & I for our ski holiday in Hakuba. We had a great kitchen, bathroom, lounge room & bedroom. It was very clean & we had easy access to the ski fields & pubs & restaurants. The hotel manager, Masaya, absolutely made our stay!!! He went above...

Everything I'd hoped for and then some - simple cosy room, fantastic heating & hot water, solid breakfast every morning at the hotel resturant; awesome location (close to echoland - great dining, gear hire, bars etc. all within walking distance) & direct pickup & drop off to the door from transfer buses to & from the unbelievable surrounding mountains, even...

I would personally spend my time at HC again next time I visit Japan to go snowboarding. Rooms are very spacious, beds are comfy enough, good hot showers and room heating. WIFI in the common room and the place is neat and tidy.
