For a January 2023 ski trip in Hakuba Valley Japan, my two daughters and I stayed 4 nights at the Wadano Forest Hotel.

The staff were incredible. They cheerfully worked long days accommodating the needs of their guests. This included shuttling guests throughout the day to various ski lifts, restaurants, shops and the base camp/ski village. The staff provided recommendations on ski venues, dining, etc. and facilitated ski gear rentals. All staff spoke fluent English.

The hotel was well maintained. We had a large comfortable bedroom with 3 beds and attached bathroom. Western breakfast was included and served in a separate quaint dining facility which included a small cozy bar.

The neighborhood is quiet and safe at night with several restaurants and bars within walking distance.

I highly recommend the Wadano Forest Hotel.

Was there with family and friends (we booked the 3 bedroom apartment) and it was a wonderful stay. The apartment was clean and well equipped (view was great during winter too). Staff was very helpful and welcoming. All of us truly enjoyed our stay there. We will definitely return if we are back at Hakuba!

My partner and I stayed for a week in Hakuba, the room was very comfortable with a view out into the snowy forest. Breakfast selection was great every morning. The relaxing onsen was great every day after a day of skiing. Although the hotel is a little walk away from the town center, is is close to everything you need and the hotel runs shuttles in the morning and afternoon to the closest lifts so you don't have to walk the hill in ski boots. Joanie was lovely and often booked dinners for us over the phone and even offered to drive us to restaurants and into town to grab supplies when she was off to run errands.

The location of this hotel is great, with a short walk down the hill to Sakka quad lift. Lots of restaurants and food trucks close by including pizza delivery straight to your room on those nights you need to rest. We booked the family room which accommodated 2 adults and 2 children comfortably. The room contained 1 king size bed and 2 singles and were amazingly comfortable compared to standard Japanese bedding which is futon style. Rooms were warm and reasonably spacious - noting that we rarely spent anytime in them! Breakfast was included daily and although I personally skipped breakky, my husband and 2 children returned to the room each morning satisfied. Complimentary access to 2 washing machines and 2 dryers was an absolute bonus, although I recommend you do your laundry before 3.30pm as the machines are in demand. To save on energy we dried our clothes overnight on the coat hangers provided in the room. No problem in having dry warm clothing by the morning. The team at the hotel - Joanie, Raymond, Jamie & Mayumi did everything above and beyond to assist with restaurant and tour bookings. Transport to ski lifts on Happo One and local restaurants was managed through a front desk booking system and this was well organised and reliable. They even assisted us with a visit to the supermarket which was extremely accommodating. The hotel had a male and female Onsen for hotel guests and this was a particular highlight after a big day on the mountain. We can't fault this hotel. We will be back and already counting the days until our return.
A big thanks to the staff who helped to make our holiday in the snow extremely memorable.

I can't speak highly enough of the level of service from Joanie at wadano forest hotel. Great knowledge of the area and always will to help out where possible. It made our stay in feb for me and my partner so much easier.

The hotel is just a short walk (5mins) to the sakka slope (beginner slope at happo-one). This means you can totally avoid the shuttle bus all together and from Sakka you still have full access to the mountain.

The room we had was a decent size, clean and bathroom was nice and large too. Some hanging space & hangers were provided, which was super handy. Ski lockers down stairs, male and female onsen and some vending machines for beers & drinks. Wi-fi was pretty decent and also could get a chrome cast i think it was from reception to log into your netflix etc. The lounge next door was a great space to utilize in the evenings and socialise with other guests. It really does have everything you need.

Our stay here it really was fantastic and i will be staying here again.
