Hilton Niseko Village

Hilton Niseko Village

The Hilton Niseko Village provides deluxe ski-in/ski-out hotel style accommodation and is ideal for small groups, small families and couples.

Where is the Hilton Niseko Hotel? The hotel is located ski-in/out in Niseko Village (not to be confused with Hirafu Village which is the main village for the Niseko ski area).

Niseko Village isn't really a village (so to speak) as it really only consists of the Hilton Hotel; however given the number of restaurants it contains you could probably consider it to be a village!

Child Friendly The real advantage of this hotel is that it is absolutely ski-in/out and is where one of the English speaking ski schools operate from, making it ideal for families with small children.

They also offer children's activities, have children's menus, cribs, high chairs, and a playground for the little ones.

The downside is that rooms are generally based on twin/double occupancy with the ability to add a third guest on a roll-away bed or sofa, so it is not so great for larger families.

Accommodation The hotel has a range of guest rooms, suites and deluxe & executive rooms for 1 to 3 guests all with private ensuites.

Bedding varies from king single/twin beds with either a roll-away bed or sofa bed for a third occupant.

In the rooms you will find luxury linens, LCD flat panel TV's, high speed "wired" internet access (for an additional charge), a safe, hairdryers and a mini fridge.

Facilities & Services The hotel offers resort style facilities including a Japanese hot spring (onsen), day spa and massage services, fitness centre, gift shop, laundry services, room service and multilingual staff.

Restaurants & Bars There is no shortage of choice when it comes to food at the Hilton Niseko. There are 6 restaurants, a cafe and a bar/pub, all within the complex.

If you want to head into Hirafu Village to try out some of the fantastic restaurants & bars, there is a free scheduled bus service that leaves from the front-door.

Great ski-in/ski-out location

Ian18/03/2016
We stayed in January 2014 for 8 days.

Pros:

- Absolute ski-in/ski-out
- Access to Annupuri gates on a powder day
- Queue for first lift in the morning very small (we were third gondola up having only stood and waited less than 10mins)
- Great Onsen
- Quiet; no snow shifting machinery noise or loud revellers
- nice daily hot breakfast with outstanding view of Mt Yotei

Cons:

- Rooms are small
- If gondola shut (as it was for one half day), the options are limited
- you have to get a bus to more restaurant/bar options in Hirafu.
- ski hire cost is much higher than Hirafu (we went to Hirafu to get it which was a nuisance).
- night skiing really means bus to town.

We would definitely stay again

A hassle free ski holiday

POWDERHOUNDS.COM09/05/2013
The Powderhounds have not yet stayed at this hotel (although we have been in the lobby a couple of times!!), however we have compiled an editor’s review and ratings based on trawling and summarizing dozens of reviews.

Here's the general consensus:

In general most guests rated the hotel as either "very good" or to a slightly lesser degree "excellent".

- Location - is excellent with regard to being able to step directly onto the slopes. The ski area in front of the hotel is ideal for beginners as it is a gentle wide-open area with very few people on it. For more advanced skiers & boarders, the Gondola (which literally connects to the hotel) takes you to the top of the mountain where you can access all other Niseko ski areas / lifts. The only downside to the location is that it is quite remote from where all the night time action, restaurants & bars are located in Hirafu Village. And on the odd occasions the Gondola will not operate in high winds, meaning you need to bus around to one of the other ski areas.

- Food & Nightlife - there are 6 restaurants in the Hilton however the general consensus seemed to be that whilst the food ranged from fair to very good, the variety was a bit lame and the cost was on the expensive side. So the only option was to head into Hirafu via shuttle bus some evenings to break things up a bit.

- Shuttle service - there is a free shuttle service that operates from the hotel to Hirafu village (about 20 mins ride) however it is a bit infrequent and can get full. Personally I have used this service without too much difficulty however you just need to be organised with your time in advance. Many people said having a car at this hotel made life very easy - there is free onsite parking.

- Hot springs - people generally raved about the bath house and outdoor hot springs as being one of the highlights of the hotel.

- Rooms - were spacious by Japanese standards however were said to be a bit dated (probably what you would expect in a 3.5 star hotel). The bathroom facilities were small but adequate.

- Service - there is a ski valet (which is almost unheard of in Japan) where you can dump your skis and boards at the end of the day without having to drag them to a locker room. There were mixed sentiments about the service; most felt it was very good however a couple of people felt it was less than adequate.

- Value - this hotel often has huge early bird deals so if you get on to one of their packages you will find this to provide exceptional value.

So in summary, if you are happy to be away from the crowds, if you have a young family and/or a beginner skiers & boarders and you aren't overly concerned about having lots of nighlife options, this is a great hotel.
