まだ、知名度が低くて、空いているので気に入ってます。設備完備で、長期滞在に最適です。夏場は車がないと、リゾート以外の外食場所の選択肢が限られるのが難点かな。 It is now in 2nd winter and still not well known. Very quite, but it is a hotspot as it is connected with Rusutsu resort Hot springs and you can use all the facilities there. As being the only condominium in this area, it has everything needed like a dishwasher, washing machine etc and ideal for long stay. In summer, the eating out places in walking distance are limited just one or two except Rusutsu resort. In winter you don’t have to worry about that since there are more than five that I can think of.

Great location, fantastic view of East Mountain and Mount Isola, great cafe with complimentary morning coffee. The room is so nice and high tech, comes with heated window, but personally didn't need it cos it made the room too hot but good for people who likes a very warm room. The control is a bit too difficult to understand so just switching it on and off was the only option. The ski locker area can do with a few improvements, such as adding mirrors at the end of the lockers opposite the benches. Also the lockers seems a little weirdly design as it was not sure how a snowboard or skis should be stored correctly as the shelves inside prevent you from storing them vertically, also it's a bit difficult to store a snowboard and a pair of skis in the same locker. There is also the issue of the melting snow from the equipment forming a large pool of water inside and outside of the locker. May be providing some brush or air jets by the entrance to get the snow off equipment before storing could help.

Stayed there for a ski holiday. I visited Rusutsu many times before and I always enjoy the mountain but staying at the vale rusustu made the whole holiday even better. The hotel is condominium style. I stayed in 1 bedroom premium suite. it had slid door to separate the living room/kitchen area and the bedroom area so it's feels open and spacious but also could use as individual rooms which I liked. Love the big window! could see beautiful rusustu view in the bedroom and living room. Even tho it was on 3rd floor, the hotel it self has higher elevation so nothing is blocking the view. The hotel doesn't have restaurants or any other facilities in the hotel building only one cafe and a ski room. but it has connected corridor to rusustu resort so the access wasn't an issue. Free access to the onsen and It's so nice. Beautiful outside onsen, various indoor pools, sauna, very spacious and modern. I liked it! Overall I enjoyed my time here staffs were very kind and helpful.

This brand new luxury condominium hotel is well designed for comfort of guest to enjoy all season of play at Rusutsu. The room is beautiful and stylish and it has everything you require! One impressive item in the room, which guests definitely appreciate is the powerful humidifier that hydrate the room! This is truly a big plus point! The connected onsen is a true gem and we really love it that its 1 min walk from the room.

The rooms are just the right size, stylishly furnished with all the necessary amenities. The connected onsen is a great feature, and the location of ski-in ski-out is perfect. The staff are super friendly. Preparing for skiing can be quite stressful (all the necessary stuff, staying warm, walking with boots and skis, etc etc), but staying here helps to overcome pretty much all those hassles.
