Great Location & Great Value

The Madarao Kogen Hotel is ideally located in a ski-in ski-out position at the resort and it offers extremely good value for money considering the quality of the accommodation. Another major pro is that the hotel is very family friendly.

The rooms are rather nice. They cater for up to 4 guests but it would be somewhat squeezy for 4 people if you had a lot of luggage.

The buffet breakfast was impressive, as was dinner, with a large range of food on offer. It was great to sample lots of food, but for the sake of your waist line and to avoid ground hog day, you may want to only eat here a couple of nights. The formal Japanese restaurant is another option, and the food there was gorgeous with respect to the aesthetics as well as the taste, but you’ll also want to burn up plenty of calories on the slopes in preparation for this feast. Otherwise if you want to vary up your dining experience, there are a couple of other Madarao restaurants within easy walking distance.

The hotel has very good facilities which makes everything rather convenient. It would be easy not to leave the hotel except to ski or snowboard!
 
The wifi only worked in the common areas (which is pretty typical for a Japanese hotel).

The service levels were very high, and the concierge staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. It was hard to leave the place!
