10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wow, what a treat. We had only a quick stay in Nozawa Onsen planned on a long ramble around Japan and this hotel was great. Our only regret was not staying longer. We visited during an un-busy time so had the hotel basically to ourselves. The room was huge and the most comfortable futons ever. We were welcomed with an easy check-in and tips for local area including the 13 free hot springs in the area. One is less than a 1 minute walk away. The hotel was in the heart of the village area (or one of the hearts) so lots of shops and restaurants around - many were closed for season but regardless, plenty to amuse you on a walk. The proprietor also provided an extra snack and coffee in the morning as we woke too late for normal meal and also let us leave car for a while so we could stroll around. All together, a great comfortable, unpretentious, welcoming Utopia. PS we even had a great view from our room window.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: A choice of Japanese or Western. Had both. Plentiful and nice.
Cons: None
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Top location and very friendly hosts
9.6 Excellent
Pros: the locations were excellent only a few minutes walk by the bus terminal and super close to the village, therefore easy access to all restaurant and supermarket. a small public onsen also just outside so super convenience. close to the Nagasaka Gondola (maybe around 7 mins walk uphill) and lots of stairs to get to the gondola. if you are renting equipments there are places where you can store your ski gear so you don't have to take it down with you. PS: please have the breakfast, they are excellent
Cons: I was a little disappointing with no pyjamas provided. usually the Japanese accomodations always provide Pyjamas for all guests.

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent

Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything is perfect.
7.9 Good
Pros: Fantastic location just off the main restaurant/shop street in Nozawa on the road that heads up to the Gondola. Spacious sunny tatami room with nice view towards old church. Very comfortable futon beds. Clean brand new (but shared) toilet facilities. Ski waxing/tuning room and large drying room.
Cons: Small and fairly basic bathroom/onsen (but there are plenty of other great public onsen close by). Gondola is close but its a steep uphill climb. Cold draft at night caused by full length windows and heater positioning meant half the room was very hot, the other half was cold.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amazing, the room was cozy, the onsen was great, breakfast and dinner were delicious and the lodge was in the centre of town right next to all of the shops and restaurants.
Cons: The only thing to note is that because the hotel is located in the centre of town, to get to the ski lift, you need to walk up a hill. But that's not really something to dislike.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff is Great
Cons: Nothing
Japanese Style Pension Miyazawa - Nozawa Onsen - Building

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice and small guest house at Nozawa onsen Staff is very very nice. He provides me for the medicine when i got pain from ski There is ski equipment rental onsite. Lovely stay as couple and family. Recommend for Ski lover it nears nagasaki gondola and they have shuttle slade to kid zone
Cons: i found no english sign of hotel name only japanese therfore we lost when the first time arrived. The way to hotel and floor in front of hotel is slippy. Please be careful while walking. You need to climb the way to ski area it is not easy for my first ski with ski shoe and all equipments to carry along
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and well managed Japanese style pension. Excellent and friendly service. Good for kids. Good rental of skis and snowboard.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was fantastic only 250 meters walk to the ski lift. The owners were super helpful and friendly.. We will definitely stay here again... Great little Onsen in the building...
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Its a Ryokan; which is what I wanted. The room I chose used shared facilities which were fine. The staff speak sufficient English for a stay by non Japanese speakers. Situated halfway between the ski slope and the town is convenient. Note the building colour is actually light grey!
Cons: I weigh 66kg but even for me the toilet cubicles (note they are western style) were chotto chisana
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We had a fantastic stay at Pension Miyazawa! The staff were lovely, very accommodating and helpful with our early arrival, even getting our room ready for us at 1pm when we arrived at 11am. The location is fantastic, 5 minutes walk from the main Nagasaka Gondola (and a short skate/skin/walk up to the Hikage lift area and if the queue is long). Also 5 mins from the main street of town and fantastic (VERY HOT) public onsens. The lodge was cleaned daily, had a very warm and effective drying room for all our gear, and the brekky was fab - a choice of styles (japanese, western, pancakes, bread based etc). We had the Japanese choice and it was hearty, healthy and fresh. Near wonderful restaurants - if you stay here make sure you try Banpuku for great ramen and udon, which is just 50 metres downhill from the lodge on the right, marked with a little lantern and sign. It's super local, tiny and not even on Google Maps yet but was incredibly delicious and cheap. If you are thinking of staying in Nozawa Onsen pick this great locally run pension - the hospitality, food and service was wonderful!
Cons: The only SLIGHT inconvenience for some people could be accidentally walking past it - but then again, that's part of the charm! It was a tiny bit hard to find from the street, it's up a driveway around the corner from Pure Nagasaka. However, once found it was a perfect location between the lifts and main street of town.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We've stayed in a number of places around nozawa onsen and the greater Nagano area for ski trips. The wafu Pension was by far our best stay. The location is ideal, the rooms and large clean and comfortable and the staff is wonderful. The ski Centric focus and facilities (dry room, ski locker) were a huge bonus. We look forward to visiting again!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is the kind of family-run place where you are taken care of. Our daughter was sick and the staff made her some broth and delivered it to us. Breakfast is delicious. The room with the loft was perfect for us. Thank you for the wonderful stay!
Cons: We couldn't find anything wrong with the place. It is a bit of a walk up the hill, but then you are closer to the slopes.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Loved the traditional Japanese breakfasts. The dinner we ordered was delicious and excellent value. The staff were really nice. I want to stay at Wafu Miyazawa again. Pro-tip: rent a yukata to chill in, and don't forget to use the on-site hot bath.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Incredibly friendly staff, amazing hospitality. Traditional style beds were more comfortable than I expected--we slept great. The breakfast was a real treat.
Cons: Ensuite bathroom was small, but I've come to expect that everywhere in Japan. Sitting on the floor in the dining room was a bit uncomfortable for a westerner like me. They brought us the low seats with backrest when we asked, so that was great.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: very helpful staff. quite close to the main street so lots of food options!
Cons: a little far from the ski lift/gondola, walking up a slight hill with snowboarding gears everyday may not be for everyone
7.9 Good
Pros: Yukiko was a charming and very helpful hostess. The onsen was a unique feature for a hotel
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The ryokan is located within 5 minutes walk from the main street in Nozawa, and 10 minutes to the walkway to the Hikage ski area. Very convenient location and a decent onsen right opposite the Ryokan. The hotel staff was very helpful. She gave us all necessary information through email before our arrival and when we checked-in to our room. She picked us up and dropped us off at the main bus stop so that we didn't have to drag our three big luggage around. The room itself was spacious and well-lit.
Cons: Not a major problem and it was clear on the site when we booked that there was no shower room inside the guest room, but it would be more convenient if there was. Compared to some other hotels in the area, this ryokan is slightly tucked away so might be a concern for people who need to carry their own ski equipment to the ski area.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly owners and staff. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Great natural Onsen .
Cons: It took me a few nights to get use to the traditional Japanese bedding but after that, quite comfortable.

Cons: No Private shower
7.5 Good

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, genuinely traditional style Japanese Ryokan, with own Onsen and close to several of Nozawa's famous public Onsens. Breakfast good.
Cons: No real complaints. Is a bit of a walk to ski lifts, but that is balanced by being a quieter part of town, which suited us.

7.9 Good
Pros: This inn is VERY close to the lift making it very convenient for skiing! Its about a 10 min walk from the main stretch of shops and restaurants. The owner was very welcoming and gave us a map of the city and a 10% discount to rent gear at a shop nearby. When we returned from a day out, the owner's wife brought us a small plate of sliced apples - and also sent apples with us when we checked out. Be aware: the bathrooms and showers are shared and the rooms are comfortable, but basic. The room we booked had tatami mats throughout and we slept on futons. (there are some western bed rooms available) This is a great small place to rest your head while you enjoy skiing and onsen.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location and high standard of cleanliness

7.1 Good
Pros: The location is absolutely brilliant. 2 mins walk from the main gondola.
Cons: Overpriced breakfast. All a bit disorganised, in terms of check in and out as well at the bathing and breakfast times.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hosts are great! The room was comfortable and everything was really nice. It's a budget option but I think it's one of the best. Beds on the tatami mat were super comfy.
Cons: You can only use the shower between 3:30pm and 9:30pm. As someone who has a morning shower I found this really frustrating!!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The owner picked us up from the bus station and helped to get to the hotel - they were very helpful and kind! Highly recommended! Room was heated very well compared to other hotels in Japan on winter.
Cons: Warmer onsen room (floor), but that is just how Japanese do onsen.. :)

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Traditional style. Good breakfast
7.9 Good
Pros: The location The service, staff and owner very polite and obliging. The onsen Rooms were comfortable in the traditional Japanse way. Close to restaurants and bars. Close to transport Close to town centre. Close to ski slopes.
Cons: Would have preferred a private bathroom and toilet. They had a 11pm curfew - which was not compatible with younger generation. No cereal option for breakfast or lactose free option. Toilets had a bad smell of urine - might have been a plumbing problem.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very good position, close to one end of the slopes. Large rooms, with a sitting area close to the window, and nice views. Did not try the breakfast, but as others have said there is a close by bakery which is awesome. We also used the owner’s service of pre-buying the tickets for skiing which was very convenient and a little cheaper
Cons: A bit run down, looks a bit old and you can’t say it is charming at all. It is very clean but still in the toilet there is a persistent smell of urine, I am sure they are doing all they can.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The owner went above and beyond for any request and was extremely accommodating and welcoming. The drying room for snow gear was efficient and there is plenty of storage downstairs for your skis/boards. The room was a lovely traditional design with strong heating and comfortable beds. We were more than happy with the hotel and the proximity to the nearest chairlift made access convenient. Breakfast was delicious and was a great way to start the day.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We had two traditional rooms on the third floor with stunning views and a little alcove seating area in each. Mattresses, pillows and heating were great. The onsen is small but the water was lovely and hot. It was a 2 min walk to free ski shuttle bus, 12 minute walk into the centre of town and 4 minute walk to the chairlift. The staff were lovely and the owner uses a translation app which is very useful and often entertaining.
Cons: We were hoping for a traditional Japanese breakfast when we paid for the breakfast option. The breakfast was OK with a fried egg and croissant but also some random things like jelly, a cube of plastic cheese and cabbage. There's a wonderful Swiss bakery about 3 minutes walk away if you want a western breakfast.

Pros: Excellent location, away from main road and traffic yet very close to main street and gondolas. The sweetest, kindest and most helpful owners! Our flight was delayed by 1.5h so we weren't able to make it to hotel as arranged, Qantas didn't apologise but hotel owner understood and didn't charge us for the 1st night that we had to stay in Tokyo instead. When I asked for help with bus and train stops to our next destination (as they were in Japanese writing)6 nights later ( Yudanaka, Shibu Onsen), the lady owner kindly translated the stops to English and than felt that it was all to difficult and offered us a ride - unbelievable! We were so very grateful!!! Instead of traveling for hours we had hours to enjoy walking around Shibu Onsen until our check in time, really can't thank you enough, it was raining all day! The breakfast is outstanding, so many different ever changing dishes, a joy and a real treat to wake up to! Our room was so beautiful and so warm, very stylish Japanese which we very much wanted, generous room size, recommend this hotel warmly to all! You will not regret it!We can't wait to return!

Otherwise, wonderful, just slightly long walk to Hikage area (where I had childcare booked) Her English level was just okay, enough to get by, but still very minimal/basic.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: My hosts, Mitsureiro and Satsuki, were so generous and kind and pleasant to be with. I injured my knee whilst I was there and they did everything possible to assist me with getting to the doctors and ensuring I had everything I needed and kept me so comfortable - I feel indebted to them. Food was first class Japanese cuisine

There are so many wonderful qualities to this place! We can’t wait to stay here again!

Pros: Very friendly owners and cats. Lovely garden. Nice to have its own onsen. Loved Nozawa Onsen....all the eggs, steam and huge variety of types of onsen to choose from

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The proprietors, Akira and Ko are the best! Helped us with several extras (Akira led us on a short hike and let us feed the koi).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner, Ms Ko, is very friendly and helpful. She's able to speak English and able to explain some skiing details that we require. The breakfast and dinner meals that they have provided is very delicious. In addition, they were able to arrange the futons during dinner time and re-arrange the seating arrangement during breakfast. The rooms and entire ryokan is very clean and there is easy access to the Ogama, as well as skiing stations.

5.8 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was good- they tried to cater for a more western palate.
Cons: Futons were crazy firm and pillows were stuffed with beads. We have stayed in nozawa before on futon and were comfy. Also, there was no bathroom only Onsen, this was only open from 4-11 so could not wash in the mornings
8.8 Excellent

Cons: nothing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Loved the Japanese family room, beautiful view.
7.5 Good
Pros: The view from our room onto snow covered fields was amazing. We appreciate the owner accomadating us as a family of 3 - somehow our booking was made for 2! We only saw the owner at check in snd check out, and he generously drove myself and the luggage upto the bus station - hubby n daughter walked!! The lodge is not in the middle of the village, but only a 10 minute walk away - which was beautiful in the snow falls! Nozawa Onsen is truly beautiful - we would go again and ski that time (couldnt ski due to hubby’s motorbike accident injuries in November). All bath houses are great and there are enough restaurants to suit everyone and every budget.
Cons: Our room was ultra small and the bunk beds uncomfortable.

Pros: Everything especially the breakfast, onsen and wood burning stove

7.1 Good
Pros: Location on piste
Cons: Cold eggs for breakfast every day. The western breakfasts are rubbish and you have to pay 200 yen to get milk not crema for your coffee Evening lodge meals also served cold. Shower pressure low. Not heated well compared with other places we have stayed in ski region
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location and service was amazing.
Cons: Need more acoustic control for the rooms
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location right next to ski lifts. Our host Tak was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble! The staff were also amazing and worked tirelessly to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Breakfast (included) and dinner (optional but very convenient after a long day on the slopes) were delicious, great value and beautifully presented. Soaking in the Onsen was most relaxing and refreshing at the end of the day. Loved our stay, would definitely like to return in future. Many thanks to Tak and staff for a fabulous family holiday!
Cons: Shared bathing is not for everyone but if you can overcome initial reservation it is well worth the experience. Our family stayed in Japanese style accomodation with shared toilet/bathroom facilities but there are rooms with private en-suite facilities and western style bedding. It’s a struggle to find anything negative to say about our experience at Lodge Denbey. We had a great time!
7.5 Good
Pros: The dinner at night was good value and tastes good. We stayed in the log house which was just above the onsen and that was really convenient. Onsen was quite decent. Relatively near to the main gondola, maybe 5 minutes walk.
Cons: It is very far from the main village and there is no transport available. It is a long walk, uphill and in the snow.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent in-house dinners. Friendly and helpful host/owner. The Lodge was on the slopes but the luggage was transported to and from the Lodge by over-snow vehicle from an associated lodge near the bus station in town. Good secure ski storage and heated boot room with easy access from slopes. Excellent in-house onsen. It is a bit of a walk back into town and the moving walkway shuts at 5:00pm but this didn't bother us as the in-house evening meals were excellent.
7.5 Good
Pros: Loved the Denby. Ski in ski out - great accommodation, gracious host. Extremely clean and helpful staff. Could not fault. Onsen on the premises often for own use. Delicious breakfast and authentic Japanese dinners. Ski drying room very warm so comfy boots every morning!
Cons: Nothing to add here
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location was great - Food was excellent
Cons: Wifi did not work in rooms only in hotel foyer
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location was great for skiing! Right next to the slopes!
Cons: Accessibility to the nearby village was poor (but that’s because you will be so near the slopes so it is a trade off).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is right on the slope so it's true ski in ski out. The facilities at the lodge make for an excellent experience all round. The onsen was amazing after a long day on the hill and the food was delicious and varied. The team were very courteous while also providing privacy during our stay. We absolutely loved our time at Lodge Denbey in the picturesque Nozawaonsen. Thank you once again Tak and the team!
Cons: There's nothing we didn't like, we had an amazing stay on the slope at Lodge Denbey! Thank you to Tak and the team

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Friendly family and very kid friendly. Easy access to Hikage area.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Family run place, very cosy.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Excellent hotel in a great location. Ski in/out, rental place just next door. Easy to get in to the village and back - it is a decent uphill walk but our three kids managed it each day. Hotel staff were very friendly, breakfast was super. It’s a basic place (shared bathrooms) but very clean and the location in unbeatable!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly, the traditional Japanese breakfast was delicious and the location is great. On our last night, they let us drink red wine in the fire room and put on an English DVD they had on hand. It was a great personal experience.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Sweet and knowledgeable owners who made me feel valued and welcome.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was our 2nd time skiing at Nozawa and we couldn’t have been happier staying at lodge Hahnenkamm for 5 nights. We were picked up at the bus stop in the Lodge van (and also dropped off at the end of stay). The facilities were clean. There’s a drying room for ski gear and common space was large & comfortable, with a fireplace and music. The breakfasts were varied and different each of our 5 days. Our western bed was comfortable (not on the floor!) and the room was large and the in-lodge onsen was hot as ever and never had to wait to soak.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Great price. Meals were really good.
Cons: My old back needs s better mattress!
4.6 Okay
Pros: The location is excellent - ski in and ski out.
Cons: The room was horrible - cold, barren and tiny. Two bunk beds and one full size bed for our family. I felt like they had converted a closet into a room. The breakfast was also very bad, serving size tiny and poor quality. I have lived in Japan for 20 years and know a good Japanese breakfast. They do not offer the same service of other locations to help you get from town to the hotel after the You-road closes at 5:30pm. Other hotels have pick-up services. I was even willing to pay and the lady was very unhelpful. My son and I walked in a blizzard for 30 mins up a pitch black snow covered road to get back to the hotel. Very poor service.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amazing and the location was outstanding in terms of ski in ski out. Loved the open fire in the communal area.
Cons: The facilities were more basic but fine and as advertised.
