I have visited Hakuba for our family snow holiday every year for the last 4 years (we love it), and the Hakuba Alps hotel was the best stay so far. I normally would not bother writing an online review, but we enjoyed our stay so much that I felt compelled to. The hotel is positioned immediately in front of the Hakuba Norikura ski resort. You literally walk out the hotel door and you're standing on the ski field. The lifts are right there in front of you, as well as a cool snow play area that had been created for little kids. Hakuba Norikura is connected with Cortina ski resort, and together they create what I think is by far the best skiing in the entire Hakuba Valley. It's huge and the terrain is awesome!"Trip Advisor
My family and I had a great stay. The snow was the best I've ever experienced. Lots of powder. I finally understand what all the fuss is about with powder snow! We all loved it. The natural hot springs onsen and spa area in the hotel was awesome. I can think of no better way to finish off a day of skiing."Trip Advisor
The rooms were comfortable and well furnished (albeit a bit dated, but even that we really liked). The breakfast buffet each morning was huge and had lots of good variety. There's a fantastic onsen and interesting hot mineral springs swimming pool/spa area that looks out over the ski runs, a couple of bars and a couple of different restaurants in the hotel. We ate in the hotel most nights, and ventured out on a couple of nights. There's a variety of restaurants/bars/cafes just a few minutes down the road, and there was also a shuttle bus service that was pretty convenient. It's a great hotel that appears to be a bit of a hidden gem in Hakuba."Trip Advisor
