Hilton Niseko Village: Convenience and Comfortable

Share This Article

Hilton Niseko Village is a very popular hotel at Niseko in Hokkaido. I stayed there for a week during my trip to Hokkaido and greatly enjoyed the stay. The main advantage of staying there is the convenience of the skiing as it is right next to the starting point of the ski routes for that part of Niseko.

Getting to Hilton Niseko Village

We were staying at Holiday Inn Sapporo Susukino Hotel and hence it is pretty straightforward to get from Sapporo to Niseko. Here’s the train route we took. We took the train from Sapporo Main Station to Otaru and then to a local train to Kutchan.

Getting to Hilton Niseko Village

At Otaru, you need to be very fast to get out of the train and go into the (very crowded) local train to Kutchan.

King Deluxe Family Room

I booked the King Deluxe Family room. Did not managed to get any special upgrades (probably due to my lowly status of Gold and also the period of stay which is Christmas period and the hotel is fully booked).

The room is pretty decent. It does showed the sign of age πŸ™‚

It does offer good scenic Niseko views.. I love the views..

Convenience of Hilton Niseko Village

Of course, the convenience of Hilton Niseko Village is that it is the hotel that is right next to Niseko Village ski school. The ski resort is at the foot of Mount Annupuri, only a 10-minute gondola ride to the top. And hence, the hotel offers what they called “ski-in/out”…

At the lobby, you can simply walk to the ski school….

Conclusion : Hilton Niseko Village

It was a convenient and comfortable stay at the Hilton Niseko Village. There are buses to take you to other parts of Niseko (and you do need to plan your time and buses). The most important thing is that the skiing is really easy to do at Hilton Niseko Village as all you need to do is to walk down to the lobby, collect your gear at the ski area, and then walk out to the ski school or the cable car that takes you right up to the top of mountain.

When you are done skiing for the day, you just put your gear at the hotel and back to your room. Simple.

Convenience is the main draw for this hotel πŸ™‚
