The Powder Temple
Reviewed 8 March 2017 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay at the Powder Temple. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable, and assisted many times with a delicious meal when we were too tired to leave the hotel for dinner. Breakfast was simple but fresh and enough to get you out the door and hitting the slopes. We stayed in the apartment with our 2 kids (11 and 8) and it was very roomy and comfortable. The communal areas were a great place to hang out and play cards and board games after a big day. And It was always warm! We would definitely stay there again, value for money and an all round great vibe!

The powder temple was a lovely place to stay! Decent size rooms, some with ensuite, otherwise public man and womens showers. The lounge area was lovely and open, same with the dining area. Booking came with breakfast which was a simple yet delicious arrange of cereals, toasts and spreads, yoghurts and drinks. Staff were all really friendly and easy to approach. Bus stop right out the front that takes you to the mountain or to town. Staff also offered lifts to the mountains or town :). Overall fantastic experience.

Having booked this hotel based on price we were not really expecting much, man were we surprised, sure it was an older style Japanese building but it was warm and inviting with comfortable western style beds( not tatami mats like most of them in the same price range) The shuttle bus had a stop out front and the friendly staff were there for any questions we had and suggested some great restaurants for us. The bar and lounge was huge and could fit some great gatherings where all the guests hung out and chatted about their adventures, the place was a huge win for us and we’ve already booked for next year!

We spent a week here during the season and the young energetic staff were always eager to help send you in the right direction, they picked us up and provided free transfers ( with prior bookings) and made a mean gin and Tonic. The place was cheap and cheerful and you couldn't really ask for much more for the price, the free morning breakfast was great with good coffee and house baked bread being a highlight, you could upgrade to bacon and eggs for 500 yen which was a great idea. The beds were comfy western style and the whole hotel was toasty warm, the free resort shuttle stopped at the front door as well. Definitely the best place I've stayed at in Hakuba in the last 6 years. I will without a doubt be back there on my next visit to Hakuba and will recomend this lodge to all my friends.

Took a gamble on a new hotel and it paid off, the crew at the Powder Temple went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one, the hotel was an older place but it had nice beds and good heating. The bar and common area was a perfect spot to hang out after a big day on the slopes with views out to the snow covered trees from the couches, a great atmosphere! They made some nice cheap drinks, the cheapest we saw anyways and had a great range. They also cooked nice home style meals at night and for lunch like burgers, hot dogs, nachos, curry, lasagne and every night there was themed meal on special for 1000 yen. The place was in a great location near Echo Land with the bus stop right out front. Our complimentary breakfast was good even though it was continental and the staff would cook up great bacon and eggs if we requested for a small charge, they also put few specialties out along with their house baked bread there was croissants one day and fruit toast another. Highly recommended!
