Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Niseko Alpen

204 Aza Yamada, Abuta-gun, Kutchan, Hokkaido, 044-0081, Japan

At the base of the Grand Hirafu ski slopes sits this modern hotel with an English-speaking staff who are happy to help you plan a Niseko stay. The Western-style rooms feature uninspiring pastel tones, off-white walls and very basic furnishings, but the Japanese and combination rooms are better, and you'll probably be spending your time on the ski trails anyway. All have Wi-Fi. The hotel's hot springs have an outdoor pool with views of Mt. Yotei, and if you have any energy left after rafting, hiking, or mountain biking, you can use the 25-meter indoor pool or the sauna.
