Il Bosco
Ranked #27 of 103 Hotels / Ryokan in Hakuba-mura
Reviewed 17 February 2017

The owner Koki and Naomi are super friendly and helpful! They Fetch us from the station, dropping us down at Happo One and even go to the train station before their busy dinner time! We had a cold before we came, and they offered Japanese medicine to us. So sweet! Best of all, this place is near Hakuba Goryu, Limori zone and Hakuba 47 ski area. It was the best slope for beginners and intermediate level. Some people like to go to backcountry from here. There are buses free for morning and afternoon, 300 yen after 17:15.

Walking distance Restaurants includes Sushi Katsu, Canada Tei, Track Bar...etc...
Koki is a very amazing chef, and his cooking skills are famous from the neighbours, and it is totally worthy price for such an amazing meal!! Must taste it if you have a chance!

The public bath is interesting. If you don't have private bath in your room, please try it!

We did enjoy the stay here! It is very good for a family or some friends to come together. Will defintely consider to stay here again!!!

Room Tip: best hotel food, convenient ski location, quiet place

Going to Hakuba is good during the winter season but staying at Il Bosco will make it Great! Koki and Naomi were the perfect hosts. The food were remarkable especially their freshly baked breads in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

This place was magic. Koki and his wife Naomi were such gracious and accommodating guests. They emailed a few days before and asked if they could pick us up from the train station and they did, which made it so easy. The house was very big, warm and welcoming. With a beautiful fire and sitting area, a private bath and incredible food cooked by Koki each morning and night, we could not have asked for anything more. Only a short walk to the ski hill, it was the perfect location. They are affiliated with a ski rental shop were you get a discount, which is also a bonus. We LOVED our stay and cannot recommend this place enough. Thank you so much!

Staying at Il Bosco, nestled away on the quiet part of Hakuba Goryu was a stupendous experience. Koki and Nomi are really sweet, kind and formidable hosts. Koki happens to be a superb cook, rustling up delicious breakfast or if requested, a fantastic Italian dinner, which was an icing on the cake after a long day in the cold. It was such a unique and a wonderful experience, sitting by the warm fire, marvelling at the snowy forested village surroundings or relaxing in the onsen after ski ing. Amazing value and a real gem of a place! Top marks

I stayed at Il Bosco for almost a week with a friend in February 2016. We where very satisfied and Koki, the hotel owner, is amazing. He is really that kind of person that spread happiness around him, always smiling and do everything he can to make the guests happy.
- Rooms are clean and nice
- Koki worked in an Italian restaurant and is a very good chef! I recommend to eat dinner in the hotel at least some of the evenings
- Great Jacuzzi Japanese style to enjoy after a day of skiing
- Cozy "lobby" with an open fire and couches
- Internet worked well without any issues

The hotel is slightly more westernised than other small family hotels we stayed at in Japan. I think this was a great thing to combine the best parts of Europe and Japan.

I recommend hotel Il Bosco for everyone who want a harmonised stay in Japan and enjoy the Japanese hospitality!
