The Maples is a very nice place to stay in for a ski trip in Niseko Excellent location in middle-upper hirafu extremely helpful and polite staff easily access of convenient store and drug store (just on the opposite side of the street) although there is no in-house onsen, but there is one just next to it
6 of us stayed for 7D6N. Great view from the apartment. We booked the ski view and were put on the 5/F. Can't complain much about the apartment. Front desk staff was not up to standard unfortunately. Not the friendliest bunch. Ski on and out is awesome. Ski room is bar none. Really good location. Improvements, if you offer shuttle to Annupuri or MaxValu at Kutchan that would be awesome. Chalet Ivy across the street offers that. Downside, no bath tub. No onsen. I would still recommend Maples to friends but would love to see the improvements being looked at. Thanks
I cannot believe the Maples are taking the safety of the customer as last priority. We were there end of FEB, 2020 and suddenly the Japanese govt declare Hokkaido in the state of emergency during our stay. The hotel shorten the operation hours immediately to protect their staff. We are experiencing extreme stress given the rapidly change and the poor handling with the princess cruise situation in Yokohoma. So, we decide to leave a day early. We asked the hotel for a refund or credit stay for future. The management say the situation wasn't too bad, and the attitude from the front desk manager was rude. Many hotels are waiving to all the change in this situation. It is because they care about the safety of the customers and their reputation. Extremely disappointed.
Great location, ski in ski out and personalised shuttle service around Hirafu. Our room has 2 bedrooms and plenty of space. The kitchen well equipped. Modern decoration. Everything was clean and new. We love the apartment. There is also a Rhythm counter at the hotel lobby which is an added convenience. The maples is also very near ski schools and just next to the Family Run. The dry room and the lockers are new and well maintained. Good room, good service and good location. I love everything about it.
The Maples was located around the middle of upper Hirafu Village amidst restaurants and shops. The nearest supermarket, Hirafu 88, was just across the road. Lower Hirafu Village's restaurants were also within walking distance albeit further which was not an issue because complimentary car lift was provided before 10:00 PM to and from restaurants within the Hirafu Village. The best part was that it was a true ski-out and ski-in unlike Ki Niseko which I stayed in previously, a ski-in, but not a ski-out because you had to walk out to the nearest ski lift which was located on higher grounds. The staff at The Maples were responsive and friendly, which really helped when assistance was needed. The studio apartment on the 6th floor was spacious and well-appointed with a fantastic view of the ski slopes and trees - I kept the blinds drawn open at all times and woke up with the sunrise; it was just so irresistibly beautiful especially after a snowfall which was quite regular in Niseko. Loved the absolutely no-hands toilet, which had a sensor-activated cover, heated seat, and cleaning, drying and self-flushing features. The portable air humidifier was much appreciated because the heating was extremely drying. Unfortunately, the apartment was not cleaned everyday, so had to make my own bed and clean after myself for 2 days before the cleaning service was scheduled. There were no hand towels; the face towels doubled up as hand towels. Also, for some reason, The Maples being a higher end accommodation, no hand or skin moisturiser was provided. As it was extremely dry and cold - bring plenty of your own if proned to skin dryness due to the weather. The ski room was conveniently located at the basement floor and opened out onto the ski slope. There was no ski valet, so had to take care of my own gears with an allocated ski locker which was fine because it was not like a ski valet would help me wear my ski boots. Ski room was well laid-out with a worktable to tune gears and toilet which was really convenient if you need to answer the implacable call of nature before you ski out instead of running back up to your room. The Maples made up for its lack of ski valet with an excellent concierge service that meticulously arranged almost everything from ski lessons and rentals to restaurant recommendations and reservations. …
The Maples Niseko was so many times greater then what I had imagined. For staters the rooms where much bigger then I would have thought, especially given the sizes of average room in Japan (tiny) - and we were in a studio apartment! They had a king sized bed, a dining and kitchen area, large walk in robe and a reasonable bathroom. I could not fault the bedrooms, it was like living in luxury. The staff were also fantastic, very helpful and friendly. Most speak great English so communication is never an issue. Down stairs they have locker rooms to store your snow gear as you are not allowed to bring it back to your rooms. I have to say that I was so impressed by the state of the locker rooms, as they are better then anything I have seen at other locations. Full sized lockers big enough for clothes plus multiple boards/skis. The rooms are warm and carpeted. Exactly what is needed for a hotel with direct assess to the slopes. The location of the hotel is in the Main Street at the Grand Hirafu area of the mountain, which is the biggest and most lively area of Niseko. Great place to stay if you enjoy eating and drinking out with plenty of variety. Access to the slopes is as easy as it gets, literally strap in at the back door and you’re already on the slopes. The hotel backs onto a green family run which has a quad chair at its base which can take you to all areas of the mountain. Honestly this hotel and our time at Niseko was the highlight of our trip. Certainly will be recommending this place to everyone, could not have imagined a better hotel. Online photos are accurate also!! 5/5…
We stayed here for 2 weeks and everything was great. The staff try hard. Rooms are clean and modern. Ski Locker facility is great. coffee shop off lobby is great. having a kitchen was a bonus for quick breakfasts and when we got tired of restaurant food.
Maples apartments are beautifully appointed with excellent fittings and decor. Service from staff during our stay was excellent. Having the ski lockers right near the slope makes it very easy to ski in and out. Ski side view is beautiful.
Great location, ski in / out and checkin service was very good. Disappointed we got allocated disabled room without prior knowledge. Bathroom has no storage/counter space, only space is over top of disability toilet/sink can easily drop things into the toilet. Toilet and shower all one wet area. Lighting over mirror in bathroom non existent Room had No wardrobe, or racks / space for bags. No shoe area that is normally beside the door in all other Japanese hotels.
Beautiful, very new, property situated on the beginners slope just uphill from the Ace Family Quad #1 meaning you have true ski-in/ski-out ability. The staff were fantastic, with the concierge on hand to give great advice on eateries in the area (and any other query you might have!). I stayed in a superior studio apartment and have seen reviews saying theyre very small - I personally found it more than adequate for two. It was very well appointed with a small kitchenette, big enough to mean we could make breakfast.. it would be challenging to make a 4 course meal though! I plan to return to Niseko and would definitely put The Maples as my first choice of accommodation
