We a group of 4 Gents travelled to Japan in search of Powder Snow .
The hotel is really nice and has a good ski rental attached to it .
The rooms are a bit small however clean towels and ropes for the Onsen are supplied each day ,
The Onsen is Really Good and just what the Body ordered after a day in the Hill .
The Main drawback is the infrequent shuttle service into town .
We found we spent a considerable part of our night waiting on buses and or getting a taxi which are extremely expensive .

The breakfast in the hotel is really good however the buffet dinner is not so good and it does feel like a canteen where you eat .

When booking we requested a room suitable for 2 adults and a 4 year old child, and were subsequently assigned a “deluxe” room without any further discussion, so we assumed that was the most suitable room with a sofa bed or cot. However when we arrived we discovered that the deluxe room consists of a king bed, and that’s it. As a rule, the hotel assumes that any small children will simply share a bed with their parents. This was never discussed with us, at no point were our options explained to us prior to arrival. When we complained the staff were quite unapologetic and would not budge, we were told we could have an extra cot bed put in the room for approx AUS$120/night...ridiculously expensive when already paying so much for the room.
Very disappointing.

Spending a few nights there to keep my promise for kids the unlimited Snow Fun and learning to ski experiences.
It is a must visit place when travelling to Hokkaido island for enjoying winter.
Easy direct access by bus from chitose airport to hotel lobby.
Resorts also have outdoor warm water pool and both indoor n outdoor "Onsen" for relaxing after skiing.
Whole family enjoying the time there and contra will be slightly high price and the resorts control very tight on numbers of people staying in one room plus age of kid to join parent room.
Overall it is a well managed resort with complete facilities plus room with full window to enjoy nice view and watching people skiing.

I booked a room for 3 adults in this hotel. As a family of three, we have stayed in many hotels where a 3 adults room provides a sofa bed as the third bed. We have no problem with a sofa bed as all the sofa beds we come across are folded out with a mattress placed on top and with bedsheet properly covering the bed. So all the sofa beds turn into a decent size bed for an adult. However the sofa bed in the hotel has bed head and bed end that this is almost like a cot. My son is not tall at 170cm, he had to squash in this bed. How can this hotel claim this being a bed for an adult? Additionally This “bed” only has a thin layer of quilt loosely laying over it, the whole edge of the sofa where hundreds of people have touched daily is completely exposed. No bedsheet is covering this “bed”. (See photo) How does this hotel respect their guests’ hygiene??? When I talked to the hotel manager, she repeatedly said both the cot style bed and a bed without bedsheet is their hotel standard. What on earth is this type of standard????? It is a disgrace for her to refer to a standard. If there is any standard, their standard is LOW.
In the bathroom, when I pulled out the clothes drying string attempting to hang washing, I saw something really matching this hotel’s low standard. A revoltingly mouldy string. (See photo)
This hotel has 200 rooms, guess what? There is only ONE lift for guests to use.
If you are reading my review, I guess you already know about pricing of this hotel so you know it hangs a high end hotel price tag. But sorry, high price = low standard here.

Thank you for taking the time to write about our sofa bed set-up. As you can see in the picture, we have a mattress pad covered in a sheet placed on the sofa plus a duvet to keep you warm. This mattress pad is placed on the sofa bed. This pad acts as a protector between the sofa bed and the guest lying on in. As such, the guest does not come into contact with the sofa bed when they lie on top. In terms of cleanliness and good hygiene standards, the sheets on this mattress pad and duvet is changed regularly. Thanks for highlighting about the clothes line in your room. Will get this replaced soonest We hope the above incident will not deter you from returning in the future.

We booked this hotel after looking at beautiful pictures online of double beds and clean floors / bathrooms. This is not what we arrived to. The village in literally non existent and they have very few busses to the main town and will not book you any restaurants there. For the price we paid this place is incomparable to any other hotel I’ve stayed in. We bought lift passes through them and they did not work once we hiked to the lift, we had to hike back in our boots to get them replaced. Rentals took an hour to get and are bad quality for price. Stay in hirafu I beg of you, not here.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your unhappiness during your recent stay. The resort is a Ski-in Ski-out hotel with slopes right at the door step. It is unfortunate that your lift pass was not functioning and you had to hike up back from the chair lift. Your feedback on the rentals and lift pass has been shared the Operations team. In total the resort have 15 Bars and Restaurants accessible by a network of complimentary Gondolas and shuttle buses.There are daily scheduled complimentary buses to Hirafu(15 mins away) and also to Kutchan train station. Our team will continue to improve and hope that these incidents will not deter you from returning in the future.

Stayed there for 3 nights. Found the advice from the non local staff of the concierge desk to be unhelpful and inaccurate. Was informed that if i were to take a taxi from the nearby town of kutcha should i miss the free shuttle bus back to the hotel it would cost at least 11,000 yen as there are no metered taxis available and i had to call a sprint private cab. That is not true. Was inaccurately told that should i take the train back to Sapporo i would most likely need to stand for 2 hours as there are not enough seats and the hotel cannot accept payment for the bus going to sapporo although the bus company said the hotel can accept payment on its behalf. it was suggested that i take the sprint taxi for 60,000 yen to go to sapporo. My local friends ordered me a metered taxi which was aksed to leave by such staff at the hotel.

the onsen is open all night but the temperature of the outdoor onsen was definitely not hot enough and after i complained the temp was increased to a reasonable level the following night but it was lowered again the next night. i had to leave after a quick dip and i have been to many outdoor onsens in hokkaido and this is most disappointing!

the rooms however are clean and comfortable. it is a shame the service was such a letdown!

We mostly had an enjoyable time at Greenleaf.

The Good:

1) Arrived via a coach from Sapporo hence we reached the hotel at around 11 am. The bus stop was located 40 metres from the hotel lobby. While we were gingerly pulling our luggage up the frozen driveway, the bell hops came running out. Yes, they came running out to assist us with our bags. Great stuff.

2) The front desk staff was polite and patiently explained how the various vouchers/passes works. They were also very helpful in explaining to us how to make our way to the Village restaurants via the gondolas.

Room:

1) We booked a triple room. The room had a fantastic view facing the ski slopes. It was amazing to wake up each morning to the view of trees covered in snow.

Others:

1) The ski base camp was conveniently located right next to the ski slopes making it truly ski in-out. Each room comes with a locker in the base camp so it was very convenient to store our ski equipment without having to go back all the way to the room.

2) The onsite onsen was heavenly. It has both an indoor and outdoor pool. The changing area was clean.

Areas to improve:

1) The folks at the ski rental needs to step up a gear and work faster. Even though there was not a queue ahead of us. It still took around 30 mins for 2 staff to gear the 3 of us up. The rental process should be better communicated to the guest.

The layout of the counter is not very efficiently design. Firstly, the guest has to key in their personal details via an ipad/tablet. Next, the guest will then write down the queue number given to him on a clipboard. Then the staff will proceed to gather the equipment before handling over to the guest at the opposite end of the counter. Once all done, the guest will then proceed to the ski lift staff located in the middle of the counter to collect the ski passes.

This can be rather chaotic when the area is full of people waiting to suit up as guests are constantly bumping into each other when moving from station to station.

2) To cater to the guests from various countries, I noticed that the ski rental staff are filled up with folks from various nationalities. Generally, the local Japanese staff are polite and hardworking. Perhaps more training to should be provided to the staff of other nationalities on what Japanese hospitality really means. This would improve the guest experience over at the base camp.

We've been to Niseko a few times now and have always thought the Green Leaf looked like a nice place to stay. So this time we booked it, and it was everything we could've hoped for and more. The quieter location away from Hirafu, ski in/out was perfect for us.
The hotel facilities are great. A nice mix of all the things you need, restaurant, bar, onsen, gift shop, ski storage, in a fairly small and relaxed establishment. The onsen in particular was a life saver. Nothing quite like soaking in an outdoor hot pool with snow falling all around you.
The staff were fabulous, warm, welcoming and helpful. But to be fair I've never had a bad experience with hotel staff in Japan.
The room was a good size, beautifully appointed, warm and cozy with a lovely snow covered vista through the massive window. The bed was sooo comfortable after a hard day on the slopes. I don't think I've ever slept so well on a ski vacation.
They provide an excellent breakfast in the large restaurant overlooking the slopes, and a reasonably priced and varied lunch menu also if you feel like skiing back to the hotel during the day. We had dinner in the restaurant a few times, and we would've liked a bit more variety in the evening menu. But the restaurant staff were fabulous, particularly the manager who went out of his way to look after us.
The location away from Hirafu might not be for everyone, and getting around between the hotel and Hirafu after the lifts close is a bit of a challenge. It's virtually impossible to book a taxi, and although Niseko United and Niseko Village provide free shuttle buses they probably need to be a bit more regular and run later. But we made it work and the bus ride home after night skiing was a nice way to wind down.
All in all The Green Leaf is a fabulous location, a wonderful place to stay, and we will definately be booking again in 2024.

The fact that you can wake up and get ready then go to the lift right outside of the hotel and then snowboard to the Hilton gondola (its open until 3 pm) and then you're up at Hiradu/Annapuri is amazing!! After 3 pm it's not bad at all, you just go outside and the bus passes every few minutes and drops you off right at the gondola. I loved my stay here - i rented my gear from the hotel - everyone was friendly and helpful. Also, I loved the buffet in the hotel - you get free breakfast vouchers for the whole stay or at least we did :)! I wish we stayed here longer!! Snowboarding heaven!!

The staff at the ski rental shop is incompetent, arrogant, unfriendly and the choice of gear they propose is of very poor quality for the price. The food at the restaurant is bad, especially for diner buffet. And they force you to have a buffet; no a la carte diner. The location is good and the rooms quite nice.
