“Good for skin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

There are Western rooms and Japanese rooms. The room was clean. The meals were much seosonal delicious local foods. I liked local beef. The ski area is walking distance. The hotel is at lakeside. We can enjoy beautiful window view in all seasons. There is a hot spring bath house near the hotel. It is called 108 steps. Yes! We can reach there in 108 steps from the hotel. The indoor bath room is made of wood. I enjoyed taking the outdoor bath with snow view. After taking a bath, my skin became soft and smooth. There are 2 electric massage chairs near the bath hall. It is free to use. I felt good on the chair for 15 minutes. The staffs were very warm and kind. Thank you very much.

Overall our stay in Zao Shiki No was pretty nice. Onsen was good, meals was of very good quality and staffs were nice and could speak english too. We were staying in a western room. It was small but enough for us. Hotel is about 5 to 8 mins walk from the cabler car.
Nothing bad but nothing special too.

My family and I spent 2 nights in this hotel during our skiing trip in Zao. The hotel package, like other Japanese hotels, included breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was very good with a lot of choices, including western and Japanese style. The Japanese set dinner was also good and tasty. The hotel had ski locker facilities for guests in the basement. The hotel had indoor and outdoor spa (onsen) in the hotel complex. But more special, this hotel had another big outdoor onsen which was about 100 ft from the complex. This outdoor onsen was excellent and was a must to visit for guests. Our family enjoyed very much. The hotel also offered free wireless connection in the lobby. The hotel was about 5 minutes walk from the main road. The hotel service was great. Our travel plan required us to change to another hotel (5-10mins away) after the 2-night stay. This hotel had kindly offered to provide free transport to us.
