The MUSE in Hirafu is a modern -styled apartment. We rented the 3 bed room for our family of 6 adults with 2 to each room. The living, kitchen and dining areas are spacious and well set-up so even for all 6 adults to be in the space. The check-in was not smooth as we had to go to another hotel ( who manages MUSE) to get the keys and the staff at this hotel is not familiar with MUSE. There is a handbook in MUSE that you need to read through to know how things work in the apartment . MUSE is located near the main junction of Hirafu and close to supermarkets , restaurants and coffee shops. However it is not ski-in ski-out so it is a trade off. Overall we enjoyed our stay there as it met our requirements.

Spent 5N at Muse in a 1BR unit. Muse is located on the main street, 100m from Hirafu Junction, which gave easy access to restaurants and bus stops. The unit was situated on a lower floor with partial views of Mt Yotei (tip: Get a higher floor for better views). Room was large and well laid out. Officially listed as 1BR, the " bedroom" is actually separated from the living area by a series of wooden sliding doors. Apartment came with the usual trappings like a full kitchen, washet/dryer with unlimited powder, fireplace, dishwasher, balcony, lots of heaters and cupboards. Fast Wifi. Comfy beds. Within the ski locker room, each unit has a personal cupboard to store skis/boots etc. Downsides: #1 no bathtub (only a shower). #2 No onsite counter/concierge service so you have to be self reliant. As a result, check in/out occurs off-site too. #3 ~400m walk to the nearest lift located at the Family Run.

Stayed at muse apartments managed by niseko vacations. Excellent hospitality and care from the mgmt team of muse. I broke my ankle on the first day, and the muse team were super attentive, supportive amd caring for my medical needs. On top of shuttling me around to the international clinic, the mgmt team also went out of their way to arrange transport for my dinner outings. The muse apartment we had, 301, was very new, huge living space and very well furnished with everything a family would need. We had a fantastic mountain view from. Our living area was huge and had a nice fireplace. Despite my broken ankle which hampered alot of my activities, my family of 5 had a really great time. I would like to express my greatest appreciation and thanks to the muse mgmt team for their outstanding service. Will definitely stay with muse again.

Had a great stay at Muse Niseko. The unit we booked was almost perfect and the Muse team accommodating and helpful. The only thing that is needed at the Muse is adequate lighting in the units. This was our first stay ever in Niseko and first time skiers. Will be coming back again and hopefully staying at the Muse Niseko.

We ate there for breakfast and had salmon eggs Benedict, forest berry pancakes, pain Au chocolat, mixed berry smoothie, and coffee. Excellent friendly staff, wonderful central location, spectacular view!!! A little pricey though. Appears trendy at night with a tapas bar, but has decent breakfast and lunch as well!!

Dear Brian, Thank you for writing a review on the MUSE Niseko page. However, I guess that you intended to write a review about "Musu", which is indeed a very nice place (but unfortunately managed by another company). I am sure they will appreciate your review at the following page: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g1025639-d11966393-Reviews-Musu-Kutchan_cho_Abuta_gun_Hokkaido.html

We spent 7 nights in flat 201 on 2nd floor. Travel agency "Vacation Niseko", which managed the entire building and booked private transfer for us from Chitose aiport. Someone was waiting for us at Muse reception upon arrival. The Muse is a recent confidential and nice boutique concept, extremely well located in Niseko Hirrafu. All major famous restaurants are reachable in walking distance (5-10 min). Hotel has shuttle service in the morning to the gondola stations and the village shuttle service (till 8:30pm) is only 2 min away. Supermarkets easy to reach as well. The flat was quiet and warm from a feeling point of view. The gaz cheminey was one of the kid highlights, giving a nice warm feeling when coming back from a long cold ski day. From the large and open living room: views on Mount Yotei. The kitchen was very well equiped with all necessary items.

This was probably as close as a skiing holiday can get to perfection! Fantastic snow, not too crowded and a stunning accommodation at Muse Niseko. The unit we stayed at was beautifully furnished, with an incredible view. The kitchen was well equipped, and the bedrooms spacious. Not sure what they could have done better....

My wife and I stayed at Muse Niseko when we were there for 5 days of skiing. It couldn't have been a better spot. Muse Niseko is in the middle of Niseko, an easy walk to many restaurants and stores. Although it is a fairly long walk to the ski fields, the Muse offers a bus to the ski centre from ~8 AM to 10:30 AM. Our room was large, open, light-filled and had an excellent kitchen and bathroom. The Muse staff were all very helpful.

Ski to the door of this gorgeous new apres bar housed in Odin Place sitting on the main intersection in Niseko Village. The striking timber and glass imposing architecture is matched inside by generous warm interiors, hospitality, delicious tapas, cocktails and local beers. We chilled out on a lovely fireside leather lounge enjoying margaritas, stunning juniper berry martinis accompanied by olives and a superb cheese platter. Not once but three times. Visit Zaka boutique for gorgeous clothes while you are there or swanky Koko Bakery.

Dear good-times-for-us, It seems that you wrote a review for "MUSU" which is a restaurant opened in the new "Odin Building" in Hirafu. This is the page of MUSE Niseko, the accommodation a bit further along the main road. Perhaps you may want to post the same review to the appropriate page? https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g1025639-d11966393-Reviews-Musu-Kutchan_cho_Abuta_gun_Hokkaido.html I am sure that they will be very happy with your very kind review!
