As the title suggests this place is not going to win any awards for stylish and modern accomodation. Not particularly good value either. But there is a wood fireplace in reception, a small shop, spa baths with complementary gowns, razors and cotton buds, a drying room, lockers and pretty much everything else you could need.

We booked really late this season and were surprised to find a hotel so close to the lifts with availability. The location is great if you're to ignore the walk up the hill from the gondola. You'll probably hate that hill like we did by the end of the trip. Apart from that the location is excellent. You have two lifts quite close by, one up the hill and one down the hill. Both were closed early in our tour due to lack of snow but when we did Happo again we used the lift down the hill and skied back to that lift at the end of the day. Cuts out most of the hill that way. At night you can pop over to Wadano past the Roots Cafe. A top place if you're looking to hire gear from Rhythm who do premium snowboard and ski hire. The central Happo isn't too bad either and we would even walk to Echoland from here.
They say never to judge a book by it's cover. This one, judge away. It's looks Soviet from the outside and true to form it is modest throughout. The rooms are tight but in our experience that's quite the norm on the hills. My partner and I slept really well here even though we initially thought the beds were quite hard. The shower was great although quite a tight fit like other reviewers mentioned. We're not big people and I found myself tucking the shower curtain into the sink taphead so I had a bit of room. Things that will annoy you about the rooms; no wifi and a lack of power points. We stayed in the main building overlooking the car park and looking towards the hill so I can't comment on the rest of the hotel but wifi was only available at in the reception area, yet another reason to get a local SIM. As for the power points we only had two available to us so if you're like us and have multiple cameras, phones, portable batteries etc, you may want a power board.
The hotel has all the basic amenities as well. There are drying lockers and a drying rooms for boots also. There's a table for any last minute tuning to do before you hit the hill as well. As boards and skis are not to be taken into rooms this is really handy. The reception area is comfortable and every time we walked through there were people plugging away on their laptops so it's a top area for catching up on emails if you can't afford to completely unplug like us. There's also a lovely fire there and some snow-covered trees to look out to. It's not a bad place to quickly check if work hasn't burnt down. Pro tip, try the ice creams they have at reception that are essentially a brick of ice cream covered in ice cream cone. I ate way too many of those. Now, things that we didn't overly enjoy, the breakfast. Dinner wasn't too shabby but we only did breakfast once even though it was included with our stay. Luckily we didn't pay extra for it but if it's cheaper to go without then there are better options in town.
This was our first stay in Happo so we obviously have a much better feel for the town now. My partner and I agreed that we'd probably stay at the bottom of the hill close to the gondola or the bus terminal next time. Would we be upset if things were booked out and we had to stay at Hotel "Pipe Smoke"? Absolutely not. It was cost effective and had everything we needed plus the staff were awesome. Very very friendly and as we didn't speak much Japanese they were also very patient and willing to help. If this is on the cards, give it a go, we ended up loving it and I think as long as you deal with the hill, you will too.

Our family room was a row of 4 single beds in a long narrow room, and each bed had a small chair facing it. You step up into a small modular type bathroom. There is also a small closet near the door. So, it's functional but not much else. Fortunately, for all your bulky ski equipment and clothing there is a ski room, locker room, drying room, and a small laundry area.

Onsen was nice and my daughter and I used it every night.
You get one towel for the week unless you know to ask for another one. No one came in our room all week to clean or empty the garbage. Not sure if you're able to request that? Since the room is small with no sitting area and no wifi, we spent most of our time in the spacious and light lobby area reading, playing games we'd brought or using internet.

The hotel feels like it hasn't been touched since the 70s, with brown carpeted walls and stairs. Very basic. My kids didn't love the local breakfast. We mostly just ate the yoghurt, fruit and mini croissants. Not fancy, but certainly functional. People at the desk and in the restaurant spoke limited English but were pleasant and helpful. (It's our fault for not speaking any Japanese!) Easy walking distance to the gondola and a chairlift (5 min). Free parking!

- Room has two decent twin beds and space for two people.
- It was always somewhat chill in the bathroom.
- Close to the slopes.
- A bit far from the happo one bus station, but still walkable.
- Had an included good breakfast buffet at 6:30 AM. Recommended.
- Purchased a dinner buffet too, price was reasonable (about 10$USD), good value for the food options plus unlimited beer, wines and hot sake.
- Did not get a chance to try the onsen, it did not look too exciting either.

Overall - not too cozy, outdated and used up, BUT not dirty, functional and reasonable. Some staff was friendly and helpful, but some stuff was also somewhat mean and ignorant.

I would consider it for another stay if the price stays the same.

We enjoyed our stay here very much for a number of reasons. Firstly, the location. Walking distance to three ski lifts and the Evergreen ski school (brilliant for the kids) and close to the Happo Gondala shuttle bus stop. There is ample parking for those who choose to drive but you really don't need a car.

The onsite restaurant was good value for money and had a range of food for all tastes with free beer and wine included with dinner. There are a number of cafes within walking distance for variety and a fridge in the rooms and hot water. There is a small shop in reception with snacks, coffee and some fresh fruit.

An onsite onsen is very enjoyable as is the lobby with its heaters and log fire. There are lockers for skis and boots near the front entrance and slipper provided in the lobby. Skis and boots can be hired via front reception (although sizes are limited to fit Japanese size feet not larg Western feet) and discounted lift passes purchased.

The staff spoke varying degrees of English but we had no trouble communicating our needs. There were very friendly and helpful.

The beds tended to be on the firm side as is usual of most Japanese hotels.

急峻な坂の上にあり、スタッドレスタイヤを履いていても雪の日にはホテルまでたどり着けないことがあります。しかもそれに対するホテルからのサポートはありません。歩いてきてくださいと言われました。
上記に伴うトラブルで困惑する事態が起こりましたが、それに対して全くサポートして頂けませんでした。すべてのスタッフが非常に残念な対応でした。

Terrible service. No support when something trouble happened. They did not help at all. I will never stay this hotel again.

A great place to stay close to the lifts for Happo-One or for the bus to Hakuba47. Staff speak limited English, but definitely enough to get by. The breakfast is good, the onsen is nice.
Little walk back up the hill from the town/bus stop (Happo), or you can easily go right out to Evergreen etc the other way for more restaurants etc.

Enjoyed our stay here due to the location-50m walk to the slopes. Room was basic but clean. Our bin and towels weren't changed at all but we also didn't ask. Rooms don't have wifi but there's a fire and heaters in the lobby with comfy couches which was great to relax. Staff were friendly but spoke limited english. They have a drying room for gear and lockers for boards. We loved the dinner only about 12 dollars with all you can eat including an ice cream machine and all you can drink beers and chuhai's. The breakfast was traditional Japanese but also had fruit, crossiants and nutella pastries. Would stay here again.

First time staying at hotel paipunokemuri and loved it. Great location only a 50m walk to the closest chair lift on happo one located one the same slope as the main gondola. Breakfast is traditional Japanese style. Dinner buffet of only ¥1080 is amazing all you can eat and drink (beer, wine, sake sho chu). Only downer there’s no wifi in the rooms but the lobby has plenty of space with ample seating and heaters/fireplace. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent budget hotel ideally located for skiing in Happo-one. Conveniently located across the road from the Shirakuba 2 chair lift from which you can access the rest of the slopes. Lockers are provided free of charge, there's a boot drying room, a work table and plenty of gas heaters in the lobby to warm up next to on comfy sofas.There's separate onsens for men and women to relieve those aches and pains and the usual vending machines at the usual prices in the lobby.

The beds aren't the most comfy (quite stiff) but are fine by Japanese standards. The en suite bathroom is very small but the water pressure in the shower is excellent! We stayed on the 4th floor and there was a bit of a weird brassica smell at times which was probably the only downside to this hotel.

On our first night we ventured out for food and accepted the high prices for little food in the restaurants as we rarely eat in hotels. However on the second night we ate in the hotel and we're glad we did. For ¥1080 (approx £7) there was an all you can eat & drink buffet. The food was really good and had something for everyone, and unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks was very much appreciated! So much so, we ate there for the rest of our stay! Breakfast was ¥580 and again was buffet style all you can eat and drink. A really good spread and miles better than eating a cup noodle in your room!

The staff were always helpful and friendly and the majority spoke good English. Overall I would thoroughly recommend staying here in Happo-one.

Overall we were extremely happy with the hotel, it's quiet, peaceful and comfortable. If you're looking for somewhere with good Apres-Ski then this probably isn't for you, unless you fancy the long steep climb back up from the town....
