This hotel is really great. It’s right in the ski resort and comes with breakfast every day. The highlight is the Chinese counter at the counter. The service is really great. We encountered many problems and Yiyi helped us solve them. Even after checking out, we had to go to another hotel. It was really nice that a hotel even sent us a car to take us there. We couldn’t book a return ticket to the airport online and they took care of it. From now on, we will only come to their restaurant when we come to Niseko. Fortunately, there is a counter for this trip. assistance

Everything about our stay was flawless from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The staff were all super friendly and went out of their way to help, the room was so cozy and comfortable we didn't want to leave! Some nice options for brekky were the cherry on the cake. Niseko is such a beautiful place made all the more special staying at the Vale.

5 out of 5 experience staying at the Vale in Niseko. Could not recommend enough if traveling to Niseko. Ski in and out ads that extra convenience, fun and very accommodating staff. Special thanks to the staff complement for making our stay more fun: Honey Harry (Happy) Patrick (Fatrich) Eric Isabella Jasmine Anna-bell Holly Jordi Callum And a few more but can’t recall everyone’s names, they were all great!

We had a great 10 day ski holiday at the Vale as a family, rooms were comfortable, modern and clean, staff at reception were really friendly and helpful, and the concierge Makoto made our stay extra special, he went out of his way with amazing recommendations for what we were looking for, personalised ski day trips, authentic Japanese restaurants, connections for future travels within Japan. Would definitely go back.

Great hotel ammenities; ski in/out location, good breakfast, onsen included, easy locker room for ski equipment, ski rental shop inside the hotel - all 5 stars! Booked everything inc. airport transfers, ski hire, lift passes etc through their online portal and it was very easy/smooth. But the staff truly stood out as excellent and deserve special mention! To the concierge team Makoto, Julie and Amelia who helped with booking dinners and taxis, and the front desk Abbey, Yas, Kat and Erik who helped through difficulties like baggage delays and trips to the doctor. The room itself was a bit bland and no privacy with window looking straight to the street - photo at night time from the car park looking straight in to the room attached. This meant the blind had to be down all day and thus no view of the snow or natural light at all. Not worth paying for superior or deluxe room as allocated a standard room anyway (they all seem to be the same on the ground floor). Definitely book here for your holiday because it's a great hotel, just would suggest it's worth the splurge to have a room off the ground floor (studio etc).

Our family ski holiday started with horrors when our luggage did not arrive. Communication with the airline was super difficult and mostly lost in transactions. When arrived at the Vale Niseko and informed Mirko about the incident, he immediately took this matter into his hand. He helped coordinate with the airline and with Yamato. He continued to give us a status update throughout. A lovely hotel staff (thank you) collected our luggage from Yamato's Kutchan office and paid for the fees on our behalf. The fees were later paid out of our credit card which was on file. They did not charge us for the collecting fees at all. Mostly importantly, we did not have to lift a finger and could focus on enjoying our holiday .... thank you Mirko and the Vale Niseko team :) You all gave us a true five-star service and experience. The Vale Niseko is so lucky to have you guys. Thank you again for giving us a wonderful and unforgettable stay at the Vale Niseko. We will not stay anywhere else next time we are there. Rooms: We stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment with a view of Mt.Yotei. It is super spacious, fully equipped with a fridge, electric hob, oven, toasting machine, dishwasher, laundry/dryer, Nespresso machine, kettle, fireplace, TV, Yamaha blue-tooth speaker, rice cooker and more!!!! We had breakfast and lunch in our apartment nice every day, which was super convenient. The bathroom is so spacious with an onsen feel. My hubby loves it so much he wants to have one built in our new home :) Nearby activities: Food trucks, bars, restaurants, bus stops, shopping Walkability: It is in a prime location, an easy stroll to the most important places; ski rental at Rhythym, food trucks, bars, restaurants, bus stop, etc. Ski-in and out ability - Ski-in yes as it is at the bottom of the Family Ace lift. For ski-out, you need to walk up a tiny slope - it does not bother us though. Food & drinks: Vale Bar and Grill is great. We had our dinner there. Food quality and service are great. Noteworthy details: Mr. Corbella, the GM, is the best hotel GM I have ever come across. I am a seasoned traveller and have stayed in many 5-star hotels around the world but I have yet to come across someone so dedicated and committed to his job and his clients like Mirko Corbella. The hotel staff are awesome. Every staff we came across during our 6 days of staying was truly exceptional. Public onsen is great! It is spacious, clean, beautiful and not too crowded.

Had a 4 night stay here for our honeymoon. Price was a bit on the dear side but after experiencing the convenience and service, it was well worth it. Very conveniently located to the Family Lift and NBS where we rented our gear (didn’t know about The Vale doing rental so may be an even better option next time). Convenience store (Seico Mart) and restaurants/eats (Tozanken Ramen, Bang Bang, A-Bu-Cha 2, Mini Donut food truck) also very walkable distance. The onsen was great after a long day of boarding too. All front staff were helpful and nice but big shout out to Fumi who went above and beyond- very lovely guy. They were able to accommodate a late check out for us when we asked in advance and they checked that there was no one else booked to check in right after us. We also got help pre-booking a taxi to fit all our luggage to Kutchan Station to head on to the next part of our trip. Thank you to The Vale Niseko, we were very happy with our stay and hopefully we will be back again some time!

A group of 6 of us stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment with the Mt Yotei view. The hotel is more western style and definitely bigger than your average hotel in Japan. Each bedroom had a comfy king sized bed and there were three bathrooms in the apartment (2 ensuites). The common area of the apartment had a full kitchen with a good sized fridge. The living and dining area had plenty of seating and a stunning view of Mt Yotei. The hotel also has an onsen and ski lockers. The location is fantastic being right next to the Ace family lifts. The hotel also offers pickup from hirafu welcome centre where the buses drop you off. We had a fantastic stay here and would definitely recommend the Vale.

Unfortunately, my most recent stay at The Vale Niseko hotel was pretty unsatisfactory. First of all, the staff's attitude was really bad. When interacting with guests, they appeared uninterested and unenthusiastic, which contributed to the hotel's overall unwelcoming vibe. Second, the hotel's service was below par. There were multiple instances were my demands were entirely ignored, and requests for basic facilities were frequently greeted with lengthy wait times. It was annoying to have to keep checking in with employees to make sure my needs were being met. Lastly my family and I were kicked off the restaurant at 8pm while it was supposed to close at 10pm because they wanted to leave early. My whole The Vale Niseko experience was below par. with subpar service, and lousy attitudes from the workers. I can't suggest this hotel to anybody looking for a cozy place to stay in Niseko.
