The hotel is conveniently located and the on-site restaurant is good, considering the difficulty in getting reservations outside. The early morning snow clearing noise of the parking lot (5:30 AM) was unappreciated. Considering the price of the hotel, it is poorly managed and service needs more training.

This has got to be one of the best hotels in Niseko Hirafu area. The hotel was amazingly comfortable and the staff were extraordinarily accommodating. They helped us celebrate our honeymoon by greeting us with a bottle of champagne, and then four days later, they celebrated my husband’s birthday with another bottle of champagne (unrequested! They just noticed his birthday on his check in information! Amazing attention to detail). The staff was always friendly and willing to help with whatever we needed. The hotel restaurant is delicious and the hotel breakfast buffet (included with our room) has to be the best hotel breakfast we have ever enjoyed. I legitimately woke up excited to go to breakfast each morning, and I’m not typically a big breakfast eater! The accommodations of the hotel were very comfortable. The beds left us with no complaints, the rooms completely black out with the curtains, and the housekeeping keeps everything spotless. The location of the hotel can’t be beat. Literally a one block walk to the ski lift, but the hotel will happily shuttle you as well! As well as all the amazing restaurants in the Hirafu area just being steps away from your door. Also, if you need to rent ski or snowboard gear, I can’t recommend the Ski Concierge at Chalet Ivy highly enough. The fleet of demo gear they have as an option is outstanding. Didn’t feel like rentals!! If and when we visit Niseko Hirafu area again, we will definitely be back at the Chalet Ivy!

The staff were so helpful. The shuttle service to the slopes made it somewhat lazy! It was only a short walk!!

Was wow-ed the moment I stepped into the property. Small, cozy but tastefully designed. Rooms were of a decent size. Good spread for morning breakfast. Lovely, spotless in-house onsen (although it can feel a bit creepy as most times, I was the only person there. Would have been great if there was soft piped-in music, but I reckon that might not be the Japanese way). The best parts of the property were 1) its staff especially Rou Hang. She was extremely welcoming and helpful. Our stay was made so much more pleasant and comfortable due to her. Thank you Rou Hang!; 2) the complimentary shuttle service. While close to the gondola base, it would have been tough to walk there with all our gear. The hotel also provided a scheduled shuttle service between 5.30pm-9(?)pm to the Kutchan area. This expanded our dinner options greatly as food while plentiful in Hirafu Village, was expensive and likely unavailable if you didn't make reservations months in advance! PS: The hotel is also just a stone's throw away from Tonzanken. Best ramen in Hirafu. But be prepared to wait in line!
