My stay at the Niseko Annupuri Lodge was, in one word, wonderful. I spent no more than 36 hours total in Niseko, and I loved every minute. From a last-minute reservation date change, to getting a shuttle from the airport to Niseko, Matt and his staff handled it all like pros and left me feeling at ease about the logistics of my stay. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful and all the common areas were incredibly clean and well-kept. The lift is less than a 3 minute walk and I was also able to walk to an onsen less than 10 minutes away. My rentals (through WinterFirst) arrived at the lodge on the morning of my full-day (I arrived too late the night before for a drop-off) and was able to leave the gear at the lodge for the company to pick up after my departure. It also doesn’t hurt that Luckyfingers, the restaurant downstairs, has some of the best food I have ever had the pleasure of having at a hotel. My suggestion, try the Niseko cheese tofu if it’s available! I will absolutely be back in future seasons with friends/family.…
I have stayed at this lodge for over a decade and it just keeps getting better. After Covid it is completely updated with new en-suite bathrooms and larger rooms. The restaurant is spectacular and provides breakfast, lunch and dinner that are top quality and best in the area. The proximity to the mountain (5 mins walk to the gondola) means you get first runs and access to entire niseko United in minutes. The winterlab ski school is outstanding and I took lessons with them. The management and staff under Matt and Yuko are so engaging and fun, and they provide concierge services and transportation. (Key in niseko) and generate comraderie with all the guests.
We had a pleasant one night stay at Annupuri Lodge Niseko. The room is clean and spacious. The staffs are very friendly and warm and make us feel at home. Thanks again for your warm hospitality. Highly recommend!
Room was big and clean. Staff were very nice and helped us with many things to make the trip very fun and special. They helped arrange pick up from bus, ski lessons with Niseko Winterlab (was very fun) and rental equipment, even called restaurants to make bookings. Will be coming back this winter for another holiday.
The quaint little area of Annupuri is the perfect getaway from the busy touristy parts of Niseko. The staff here are so friendly, and you can literally see the chairlift from the lodge, that's how close you are (2 minutes walking). The staff helped us book some lessons with Niseko Winterlab, a nearby ski school, and they also arranged for our rental gear to be fitted in the lodge and picked up from there too! The breakfast was ok, I'm vegan so it made my own personal options a little limited, but I'm sure for people without food restrictions it would be great cause it looked very tasty! If you're looking to stay in a quieter area with staff that make you feel like home where you can walk to the ski area, then this is the place for you. I also highly recommend the pizza place right across the road, real Italian pizza! Thanks for such a fab stay, I highly recommend it!…
This is the place for real Niseko flavor. Owners and staff make you feel like family, especially at breakfast. We met really interesting other guests, from Japan and literally all over the world. The restaurant/bar is possibly the hippest spot in town. And yes, it is literally a block to the lifts. Can't be beat.
We stayed a week in February 2019 and we were very disappointed with accommodation, cleanliness and facilities. Furniture looked as if it had been retrieved from a skip in a poor area, the room wasn't cleaned at all in 6 days and was grubby to start with, I never saw a cleaner anywhere and it showed. Electric points held on with blue tack and beds as hard as rocks. To access a shower we needed to go down a floor and walk across the main entrance, appalling value for money.
Couldnt speak highly enough of our stay at Annupuri lodge. The staff were awesome especially Mir and Manu. Breakfast was great and Manu made everyone feel at home and welcome. The lodge was clean and tidy in a great location close to the Annupuri lifts. The lodge manager Mir picked us up from the bus stop and was very approachable and kind. Would highly reccomend this lodge to anyone looking to get out of the hustle snd bustle of Hirafu!!
So close to Annupuri Ski Resort. Just a minutes walk to the lifts. Cosy, comfortable and clean. Super cool place to meet peoplez. Mir mans the front desk and Manu looks after our breakfast. They’re bloody ledges. They’ll look after ya!
The Annupuri Lodge team is a friendly group of snow lovers that go out of their way to make sure you have a good time and have all the right information to maximize the benefit of the stay. I had issues obtaining cash and they were very understanding and trusting about it and did not let that hinder my experience. Location is also great! Under 5 min walk to the Annupuri gondola. I definitely recommend it to all kinds of travelers!
