This was our 2nd stay at Maruni Ryokan and we absolutely loved our stay. Rooms are clean, warm and cosy and the japanese beds are very comfortable. Japanese breakfast is always different and interesting. Its only a short walk to Happo Bus Stop so very easy get to any of the mountains in the Hakuba Valley. What makes the place really special is Shino and her family who go out of their way with little things that make you at home and we loved walking through the doors after a solid day on the mountain. Thank you Shino, see you next year!

We stayed 6 nights, the service could not have been better, the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing and different every day! We had dinner on the last day and it was wonderful and very reasonably priced. There is an Onsen to soak in after a long day skiing.a large ski room and a separate drying room. You can buy ski passes for Happo One there and hire ski gear. They are a short walk from Happo bus terminal and not far from the Happo one slopes.

Stayed 5 nights in December and had absolutely no regrets. Location is very near bus terminal and free onsite parking for those drive. Loved the sumptuous breakfast which changed daily and was the perfect start for a day on the slopes. We had the dinner and it was excellent as well and great value. The onsen was a great place to relax at the end of the day too. But highest scores to Shino-san and her family who were always warm and helpful and attentive as one of us had an injury and she took the initiative to adjust the futon bedding arrangements so that it will be more comfortable and even took special care of cutlery arrangements. They even gave us some apples as a farewell gift. I would definitely stay here again.

Looking for a traditional ryokan in Hakuba (one of the best ski destinations in Japan and Asia), then Maruni is a fantastic option. Well located only a couple of hundred metres from the bus station (and information centre which has one of the town's few foreign currency-enabled ATMs). Staff are super friendly, breakfasts change daily and are a true treat. Rooms kept super clean, comfortable, and warm. All great before or after a day on the slopes. Oh, and their own male and female onsens too. Not expensive either. Definitely recommended.

We just returned from 8 days at Maruni Ryokan and this place delivers on every level. The location in Happo made things very easy as it was less than a 5 minute walk to Happo Bus Terminal, 10 minutes to the Happo One Gondola and a number of great restaurants and a couple of bars are all within 5 minutes walk. It snowed all week we were there so we ate out in Happo every night until the last night when we ventured a little further to Wadano which was only a 10 minute walk away. After a solid days skiing it was so nice coming home to Maruni Ryokan. Immediately warm and cosy when you walk inside, the onsite onsen is a great way to relax the muscles and the japanese style rooms were surprisingly spacious and the futon beds were very comfortable. Each morning we were served a japanese breakfast with lots of different plates that was both delicious and filling and changed every day. Fast wifi throughout the whole hotel. What really made this place so special were the owners Shino and her family who looked after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble and they were able to help with anything we needed - it was incredible. It was my first visit to Hakuba but the others in my group have been coming every year for 8 or 9 years and have said this is the best they've stayed at in this price range . Cant wait for next year, thanks Shino and family!
