Japanese style room with shared bathroom ”
It's okay to stay if you travel solo or couple. It is very cold during winter time even with the heater (only in bedroom). Shared bathroom is not convenient if you travel with a small kid.
A simple traditional hotel that is easily accessible”
The hotel is a short walk of about 500 meters away from Echigo Yuzawa station although for us, it was a long slog as we arrived in the middle of heavy snowing! We got all our shoes and socks wet in the puddles.but Hirokawa has a heater in the general area, which allowed us to dry our shoes and socks. The hotel also provided us with umbrellas and rubberised boots for the next 2 days that allowed us to do our sight seeing at the nearby ski resorts. The room itself is a large room with mattresses on tatami mats and I love it. It has a toilet though you will have to use a shared bathroom. The owner speaks pretty good English so you would have no problem communicating. Getting around, there is a free shuttle bus (Yellow Line) every half hour running between Naspa and Gala Yuzawa and there is a bus stop conveniently located right in front of Hirokawa in both directions. Overall, my family really had a great time here.
Huge room at great location”
Huge tatami room, only mins walk from station. Shared bathroom is very traditional onsen type, be prepared if you are not keen to get exposed.
Типичный японский гостевой дом, старое здание со всем ее содержимым, в здании холодно по русским меркам, везде стоят газовые обогреватели, перестают работать становиться сразу холодно. Встретили очень приветливо, все показали , знание английского было хорошее. Большой плюс совсем рядом от ЖД станции.
