Wondering where to stay in Niseko? We just spent an amazing week checking out a few of the best hotels Niseko has to offer and can’t wait to share them. Niseko Accommodation can truly be hard to nail down, especially in the winter when skiers and snowboarders from around the world head to Hokkaido chasing the JAPOW.
If you’re searching for a great base area to stay while enjoying your holiday in Niseko we have you covered. Here are few Niseko hotels to consider on your next trip to Niseko.
Where to Stay in Niseko
The Muse Niseko is a boutique vacation property located in a central part of Hirafu. Just across the street from places like Green Farm cafe and only a five-minute walk to the Hirafu Gondola, this place is a perfect place to stay in Niseko. The Muse has many room options available, suitable for couples, groups of four, or even a whole party of eight!
The rooms are extremely modern and have jaw-dropping views of Mt. Yotei. There are luxurious amenities such as heated floors, a laundry machine, full kitchen, a fireplace, and Apple TV. The Muse offers a ski locker room on site making getting ready for a day on the slopes extremely easy.
We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay at the base of Niseko, The Muse certainly is one of the best places to stay in Niseko.
TELLUS Niseko is a brand new apartment-style hotel that caters to upscale living. Tellus sits at the base of Niseko Hirafu just steps away from the Hirafu Gondola. If you want a central location while in Niseko then Tellus is for you. The concept of the Tellus is modern and sleek and each room has it’s own onsen tub (mineral water).
There are only 14 rooms total, but some of the larger family-style rooms have fireplaces and all the top-level rooms have great views of Mount Yotei. While I loved the look of Tellus I did find the beds extremely hard and uncomfortable, and it’s right next door to the infamous Wild Bills bars which gets loud and rowdy on weekends, echoing into the hotel.
However I was extremely impressed with their friendly and helpful staff and their super convenient free shuttle service that will take you anywhere in Niseko and even to Kutchan!
Landmark View Hotel
Still wondering where to stay in Niseko? With 47 units, the Landmark View Hotel is a great place to stay if you are in a large party and require multiple rooms. Landmark View apartments are available in 2 or 3 bedroom options and have a full-service kitchen, living area, and Apple TV for optimal comfort.
All rooms have floor to ceiling windows with views of the majestic Mt. Yotei.
The best part about Niseko Landmark View is that the Niseko Hirafu Gondola is only a few hundred meters away. That means on a powder day you can easily be one of the very first people on the lift and get fresh tracks.
Landmark View is a relaxed place to stay and not quite as upscale as The Muse or Tellus, but still provides guests with everything they could need in a trip to Niseko.

Get a Travel Credit Card
How do we travel so much and avoid going broke? Well, we actually have many travel rewards credit cards. How many? Over 20 to be exact. If you’re a responsible credit card user I highly recommend looking at these travel rewards credit cards and earning points and air miles for your purchases.
I ALWAYS have a down jacket with me when I’m traveling in the winter, fall, or even spring, even in Japan. They aren’t just good for hikes, but doing anything outside. Mine came in particularly useful in the Dolomites.
Down jackets pack up light and small so there is no reason NOT to have one in your bag. Seriously it could save your life in a bad situation. We wrote a whole post on our favorites (hint –Feathered Friends, Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hooded Jacket, Patagonia Down Sweater, REI Coop Down Jacket)
I love real books, but for traveling it can be easier to carry a lighter and more compact item like a Kindle. Plus, then you can download new books on the go!
Please consider purchasing a travel water bottle before your trip! We hate to see one time use plastic bottles ending up in the ocean. The tap water is so good here – seriously please don’t be one of those tourist that buys plastic water bottles in Japan. It’s a waste of money and plastic!
