Hotel Appi Grand

Hotel Appi Grand

Hotel Appi Grand

The Hotel Appi Grand is aptly named because it is majestic indeed. Some say that the exterior is lemon coloured, whilst others describe it as gold and symbolic of the impressive Appi Ski Resort. Either way it certainly cuts an imposing sight. The interiors are less grandiose, yet the décor is classy and the artwork striking.

Hotel Appi Grand provides a range of excellent hotel accommodation, an outstanding range of facilities, and fantastic service.

Where is Hotel Appi Grand?

The hotel is located right at the base of the slopes at the Appi Kogen Ski Resort, so it’s very conveniently ski-in ski-out. The hotel is also superbly located right next to the kids’ snow park and the resort centre.

Appi Kogen is located in the Tohoku region, the northern part of Honshu Japan.

Hotel Rooms

The hotel offers a range of rooms across the main building and the adjoining tower. Standard twin rooms are 21.1m2 in size, the deluxe twin rooms are a little larger and also have a sofa bed, and the delightful tower twin rooms are 38m2 and have two sofa beds. Family rooms have three single beds as well as a sofa bed and range from 35.9 m2 to 50 m2 in size. For the ultimate in accommodation, there are also tower semi suites.

You can bathe in the onsen if you like, but all the hotel rooms have bathrooms and some even have an extra shower as well. All rooms have a TV and LAN internet access, and many of the rooms have fantastic views of the ski slopes.

Facilities & Services

The facilities and services of the hotel are extensive and include:
  • wireless internet in the lobby of the hotel and other ground floor areas
  • a well decked out gymnasium and mini climbing wall
  • heated swimming pool
  • squash court
  • onsen and private spa
  • day spa with massage services
  • souvenir shop, convenience store and a small ski/snowboard shop
  • special concierge service for English speaking guests
  • ski and snowboard rental station
  • games room
  • karaoke and party room
  • ski lockers
  • spiffy high pressure areas outside the gelande entrance to blow any snow off your gear and clothing

Dining and Bars

Meals can be included in your accommodation package if you wish. The hotel itself has five high quality restaurants with a wide range of cuisine, or you can dine at the restaurants in the Grand Villas. See the Appi Kogen restaurants page for more information.

The hotel has two bars: one is sophisticated and classy; and the other has a more casual atmosphere, a billiards table, and it overlooks the pool. Both bars tend to be reasonably quiet. Like most other Japanese ski resorts, Appi Kogen doesn’t have a raging nightlife scene.

Why Stay at the Hotel Appi Grand?

Firstly there’s the high quality accommodation, the delightful restaurants and abundant amenities. The attention to detail with regards to the service is impressive, and the hospitality at Hotel Appi Grand is marvellous. The hotel can cater really well to English speaking guests. They have three special hosts that can help out with any queries.

Grand Indeed

Some tower juggernaut hotels at other Japanese ski resorts are way OTT (over the top), yet the Hotel Appi Grand manages to have a distinctively impressive hotel without it being brash and Japanese kitsch.

We stayed in a tower twin room which was beautiful. The décor was understated yet classy, the beds super comfortable, and the room was large, so large that you could swing a family of cats around in there. The views across the ski area were awesome and it was very tranquil in the evenings to look at the illuminated slopes. Everything was just right!

We were impressed with the restaurants and even the breakfast buffet at the Arlberg was delightful - there was no feeding frenzy to get to the buffet food (like you find at some Japanese hotels!). 

And the convenience of being completely ski-in ski–out was superb!
