Great for Families and Groups up to 7

The Tower Hotel is a very lovely place to stay. It’s a “normal hotel” for adults. It’s not that it’s not child friendly, it’s just that it doesn’t have all the glitzy kids paraphernalia that can be found at the Rusutsu Resort Hotel (a crazy hotel with all sorts of weird stuff!).

The location possibly isn’t as convenient for access to a wider range of restaurants and bars, and some of the little kids activities.

ROOMS/SUITES - very spacious, clean and reasonably modern. Only one bathroom per suite which can make it a bit of a challenge if you have 7 people in a suite.

FACILITIES – the onsen is superior to the Rusutsu Resort Hotel's onsen which is chlorinated (to cope with all the little kids) and there is also a lovely outdoor onsen. There are good ski storage facilities.

SERVICE – reasonably well organised and plenty of English speaking staff.

NIGHTLIFE - next to none in the Tower.

RESTAURANTS - Good selection of food but a bit pricey if you are eating there every night. Breakfast is great but sometimes it can entail a 5 minute wait whilst the Japanese staff work through their systematic procedures (not always the most efficient!). Plus last call for breakfast is 9am so no sleeping in.

 Overall this property is very good to excellent.
