Where to Stay in Niseko

The Muse

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

Where to stay in Niseko

Still, wondering where to stay in Niseko? With 47 units, the Landmark View Hotel is a great place to stay if you are part of 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.
