Stayed at Yama Shizen for a week and we were 6 people in the apt. It is in a very good location close to restaurants and supermarket (150meter).
Ski rental on the property was a great convenience and we are very good skiers skiing off-piste and that had what we needed.

Only negative is a slow internet.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for staying with Niseko Central this winter and taking the time to leave a review of your stay.

It's great to hear that your group enjoyed the convenient location of Yama Shizen. I'm also glad to hear that YamaSport in Yama Shizen West fitted your requirements. We will look into the Internet for your unit to see if there were any issues.

Thank you again and I hope you will choose to stay with us again in the future!

I have stayed at Yama Shizen a couple of times now over the years and the accommodation is fantastic, It is always clean, the staff are fantastic and always helpful. The unit we had was 2 bedrooms with 4 beds, they have a laundry and drying room which shares between two units. The main unit has a large couch, table, all the cooking facilities you would need, refrigerator etc. the 2nd unit has a very small but workable cooking area. Yama Shizen i believe is very centrally located, you are about 600m from the quad lift, 600m from the gondala and 400m to the main street, 400m to Rhythm and the other speciality shops in the area, I have never stayed anywhere else in Niseko but i have no dramas highly recommending Yama shizen to first time or regular visitors to Niseko.

Thank you to Niseko Central staff for adding so much to our experience in beautiful Niseko. The apartment was awesome and the skiing fabulous. An extra big shout out to our driver Charlie. He was so helpful and gave us some great tips to help us make the most of our stay. All the staff we met were wonderful but Charlie was a standout.
Really makes such a difference to your whole holiday experience when the people are great.

We had what must be the smallest configuration of 'apartment' at Yama Shizen (East), more akin to a twin room in a hotel, a small sink and service area with a toaster, microwave and bar fridge. There was however no stove-top. I could not in all honesty acknowledge the accommodation as an 'apartment': a bed-sit at best.

I know the other units are more apartment-like but I guess we weren't on the higher rate. However, as much as our accommodation was like a hotel-room there are some important differences mostly around the services (or lack thereof).

Bed-linen was changed once during our 7 night stay, trash emptied every other day and tea, coffee and milk provided but once (on arrival) and never thereafter replenished. The eco-room service is 'economical' for the hotel, not 'ecological' as you might think: trash is removed, towels are changed but there is no cleaning or tidying. There are no facilities on-site, no gym. no spa, no pool. There is an onsen up the street.

A few other negatives. There was a bean bag, with no beans in it, the foyer smelt like trash and is mostly filled with left luggage, the TV is too small. The adjacent larger apartment was unoccupied but no one offered to upgrade us, I would have been happy to pay extra.

A few positives: the pick-up service on arrival is excellent, the staff are very friendly, there is an Apple TV, a 90's stereo, the beds are very comfortable, the shower is excellent, there are facilities to wash clothes, it is toasty warm.

Dear Wernmachine,

Thank you very much for your review of your recent stay with us.

From your description, it appears you stayed in our studio room which we are clear to differentiate from the 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments which come with full kitchens and separate bedroom/living areas.

I am glad to hear our staff provided a friendly and professional service and also happy that you could enjoy the equipment and facilities in the room. Please note that we offer upgraded daily housekeeping services should you require more than the eco-cleaning plan.

I hope our reservations team can help find you the perfect room and plan you are looking for on your next stay and we all look forward to seeing you again.
