The hotel is old, but some rooms are renovated. Take care, that you get those rooms, because the old ones are just horrible. There is a big onsen inside and outside, with a sauna. The breakfast is Japanese style with a wide selection of food. The staff is helpful, but do not expect services for laundry etc.

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at the Prince Hirafutei. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. In particular, I left an article in our room when we checked out, and Kato-san went well out of his way to ship the article to me at our hotel in Sapporo. The onsen was spacious with multiple bath options and clean, well equipped locker rooms. The location is very convenient for ski-in and ski-out. The exterior of the building looks a little ‘tired’, but I would not hesitate to stay there again given the very positive attitude of the staff and the great location.

Before arrival, we spoken to a staff to ensure availability and a quiet room. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by the same staff that recognized my voice. Impressive! It was a last minute booking as the accommodation we previously booked was so horrible that we were forced to leave almost immediately without a place to stay. To our very pleasant surprise, Niseko Price is a ski-in/out hotel and even has a ski equipment rental shop, nice restaurant, souvenir shop, tour desk and a charming bar. Our room is very clean and quiet and has a beautiful view of the ski slope - a nice bonus. The staff are always very polite and helpful. They provided all kinds of useful information even though a few of them did not speak English very well. This hotel is just besides the ski slopes and very convenient for beginner & intermediate skiers. Did I mention onsen? This hotel has a decent onsen facility and is free for hotel guests. It’s good for the muscles after a day of skiing. The outside of this hotel is rather unassuming, but its interior, especially the rooms are great. All in all a fabulous stay which greatly enhanced our skiing experience.

Onsen is closed from 10:30am to 1:30pm but I was able to enter at 9:30am and was the only female using the facility. Baths are small but very nice, the outdoor one has an excellent view in winter. Cost is ¥1000 + and extra ¥200 for a towel if needed.

My family and I have been staying at this hotel now for around 8 years - we stay in early February for our annual ski trip to Niseko. Initially the hotel was friendly and we were happy with it. We have had bad experiences in the last two stays though and I doubt we will return. First, the staff become rather aggressive if you don't comply with their rules (which I admit we breached slightly but not in any serious way - eg taking some breakfast food to our room because my wife had overslept) which I found an extraordinary way to treat someone who was such a loyal customer - it really leaves a bad taste. Secondly, the housekeeping has become very poor - they forgot to leave water, towels, cover pillows with cases, "yukatas", tea and other things on several occasions meaning we had to call down for replacements etc. This never happened before - also the hotel has stopped refunding housekeeping costs if you decide on any day not to have your room cleaned. It did this for the last 8 years that we have been staying but not any more. Thirdly, the rather decent onsen on the third floor has been taken over by outside guests. At peak times (say 5pm-7pm), it is full of non-hotel guests making it hard for actual guests to use all the facilities. My feeling is that this should be reserved principally for hotel guests at peak times but no doubt they are making lots of money from the outsiders.... Fourthly, although this wasn't a problem for us, our friends experienced similar inflexibility from the staff as us when they wanted to get another person to use their room. They had booked for a three or four bed room in anticipation of a friend arriving a few days after them. The hotel wanted to charge an extra Y24,000 for his stay in their room. It would have cost Y13,000 for him to have his own room (admittedly a smoking room). They will also not be returning. Fifthly, inexplicably, the breakfast time has been shortened to close at 9am with people being asked to leave from 9:30am. It's true that this is a ski resort and people should be out on the slopes asap, but it's also true that sometimes people want a lie in when tired or if the weather is too bad to ski. This I found very very irritating. On the plus side, the hotel is a genuine ski in ski out, just above the Family Lift. It now has improved ski rental and a decent massage section (which I didn't try). The downstairs onsen is pretty good (if it weren't full of backpackers). Many rooms have their own private onsen (but not the cold bath, sauna and genuine outdoors bath section of the downstairs onsen) as did ours but my wife used that mainly. General comment is that I will be looking elsewhere next year.

Was told late check out would Cost 1750 yen over the phone. They missed a zero and charged me 17500 yen. Also requested for a cab that was also 10,000 yen more than I was quoted. Having a personal onsen is nice but isn’t really worth it in my opinion. It’s normally a small pool and the decor prevents the blinds from closing all the way so people in the neighboring hotels can see you. The only real plus was the great massage, toshiros whiskey bar and the (which is closed more than its open) convenience store in the lobby. Service in general was friendly, but communication quite literally cost me a severe amount of money. Will not stay here again.

We paid 200yen extra to rent towels but surprisingly nice place with good view of the slopes from the outdoor area. Had a good time. Note that Onsen is closed from 10.30am to 1.30pm.... so avoid these times. Caught a break when there was no one in the Onsen so I managed to take a few pictures.

We booked a week in this hotel. A family of 3 with a child. When the booking was made we only had an option of 2 rooms. Unbeknownst to us that these rooms were separate and the child would be by herself. The first option of rooms we were given we not the rooms shown on the website. They are known as the western rooms. These 2 rooms were so small you could not fit a 2 bags and 2 people in one room. Highly disappointed, we requested a room change. We were given another room with 2 beds and were told we would have to pay equivalent $3000 aus to have a japanese style mattress on the floor. As there were no other options and late at night we took the offer. We agreed to pay the room a few days later after trying to speak with our travel agent. The hotel manager or owner approached us a few days later and offered us a massive discount on the room. Rather than paying 249,000 ¥ (yen) he offered to charge us only 178,000¥. Very generous and helpful. The staff were wonderful and very friendly and welcoming. Food was very average. Highly recommend eating out for breakfast instead of the hotel buffet unless you enjoy sardines for breakfast. Overall great placement of hotel offering ski in ski out options and very central to everything.

My family (2 adults and 2 young kids) stayed in the Yumoto Niseko Prince Hotel Hirafutei for a night in mid-July. On approach I noticed that the hotel premise appeared rather dated. Our room had a small private onsen pool with a direct view of a skiing slope. The room was a typical ryokan-style one. As usual, futon beds were set during our dinner time at the hotel restaurant. It was found that all four beds had fully occupied the lounge spaces of my room. Hence little spaces were left for our lugguage. Our plan included buffet breakfast and dinner, that mainly provided Japanese cuisines. Nevertheless the food with local ingredients was fresh and yummy. The onsen facility contained an outdoor and one indoor pools. The outdoor one was rather small and gave a forest view. We came in summer time and could not comment its skiing facilities. Car park was free. The overall building of this hotel seemed dated and renovation might be necessary. It was noted that there were a number of new and fancy rental apartments and hotels around this region, and travelers could have a number of attractive accommodation options. Probably the dated condition of Yumoto Niseko Prince Hotel Hirafutei explained its relatively reasonable room rate. I booked this hotel mainly due to the private onsen and I was content with it. However the other aspects of the hotel were considered as not bad but not exceptionally good. I recommend this hotel to travelers who seek for a reasonably priced room with a private onsen in the Niseko region.
