No matter which ski resort in the world you may choose to visit, one thing can be said about accommodation options: location is everything. Aria Hotel can be found in one of the most convenient spots in the whole of Hakuba, and although a chic, interior design element may be slightly lacking, this is an extremely affordable hotel guaranteed to provide the perfect base for any snow-obsessed group of travellers.

Located in the Wadano Area, which is Hakuba’s premier district, Aria Hotel is convenient and friendly, and offers all of the basics for any holiday with a number of great bonuses. Perhaps the best thing about this accommodation option is that it is just 150 metres from Hakuba Happo-One chairlift, which only consolidates further the excellent value for money that this ski-in / ski-out hotel has to offer. Even closer (just 30 metres away) is the mountain shuttle bus stop, which can take visitors to nearby resorts including Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47 and Hakuba Iwatake. What better way to make the most of your time on the ski hill.
Within Aria Hotel, guests can expect English speaking staff, a drying room with laundry facilities and shared bathrooms. The top floor boasts large windows and stunning views of Happo One ski area – and what makes these views that little bit more special is that they can be seen from the hotel’s private Onsen hot spring bath at the top of the building.
There are three types of room available within Aria Hotel, and many have beautiful mountain views. Western style rooms with two (twin) or three (triple) single beds are available, as are rooms with a private bathroom for those who do not wish to share. A more traditional, Japanese-style sleeping arrangement option is also an option here, and a Tatami room – which features futon bedding laid directly on to woven bamboo matting – can accommodate between one and four guests. Breakfast is available at Aria Hotel for an extra fee.
