The place is great, the staff are friendly.”
When we arrived at Escal Plaza around 8 AM the parking near the building was full. We tried to call Pension Chau chau if we can park our car even if the check-in time is 3pm, the let us use there parking area. A minute walk from Pension Chau chau we rode a shuttle bus bound for Escal Plaza. The breakfast is also good and healthy. There is a baseball ground beside and the kids play with the untouched and accumulated snow. There ski and snowboard rental fee is very low, also they have 1 day pass for lift/gondola for only 3,000 yen which normally cost 5,000 yen at Escal plaza.
I went to Hakuba for sight seeing and have a time with family in there. The pension chau chau give us a great time. The owners very freindly and the breakfast very delicious and morvellous. Highly recommended.
A Slice of Heaven in the Japanese Alps”
This hotel exceedes my expectation. We stayed here for 2 nights. The owner is one of the nicest people we've met in Japan. He picked us up from Hakuba Station and drove us to Hakuba 47 the next day. He even taught us how to ski since it was our first time. We rented all the skiing gear from him and got lift passes for half the price! It was worth it and it saved us a lot of money. The breakfast was sublime!!! It was the best breakfast we ever had in Japan <3 Each dish had different flavors and all the ingredients were fresh. It was so delicious. I cannot recommend this place enough. I promise you, you won't regret it. You will be treated like royalty. TIPS: 1. You may call the hotel to schedule a pick-up from the telephone booth at Hakuba Station. The owner will not pick you up if you arrive 6pm onwards. Dial 02 + the hotel's phone number. Do not include the country code. 2. Most restaurants around the area are only open during the Winter Season. The nearest 7-11 is a 20-minute walk away from the hotel. If you want to eat dinner, you must inform the owner one day in advance. Enjoy!!!
Super Host with Great Hospitality”
The Pension is beautiful and is well maintained. The room is spacious, as we booked a room with attached bathroom. It is about 10-12 mins walk from Kamishiro train station. Quite challenging to walk around if you have big luggage. But the owner is super nice, he picked us up from the train station. Not only that, he fetched us to the Goryu Ski Resort, to dinner place, and to Hakuba Station after we checked out from the Pension on the last day. The owner speaks decent English, no problem in communicating. For breakfast you may need to inform the owner in advance and need to pay additional, but no regret as the breakfast is great! You may get discount day pass from the owner too. Overall, highly recommended if you would like to stay in a peaceful area. By the way, there's a small restaurant near the Pension called "Pizzakaya", they served very good western dinner, recommend to try it!
Super nice cottage with nice owner”
Great services by the owner. He run the place with his wife and the place is very well kept and cleaned. We stay for 2 nights in a room with a private bathroom as we travel with young kids and the room was spacious. Hakuba Goryu ski is just walking distance from the lodge and a convenience store is a bit further about 1.1km. However, it was a pleasant walk, with great views of snow mountains, I don't mind to walk at all! It was snowing the whole day when we stay and it was a pleasant and beautiful stay. There's few restaurant and bars around the lodge but there is no halal-friendly place around the area so muslim travelers may need to pack up some food or just eat seafood and takoyaki.
Staffs are so nice. You could find them anytime for any inquiry. Very Quite place with beautiful nearby, close to Hakuba Goryu and could take shuttle to Hakuba 47 also. They could also pick u or send u to JR station. Would recommend it for sure.
Friendly/helpful owner ”
We choose this bnb due to its strategic location, (700 meter to Hakuba Goryu Ski Resort). The owner was kind enough to fetch us from Kamishiro station to this bnb . Definitely will comeback.
1/ Location is everything. Pension Chauchau is close to Escal Plaza, which is major entrance of Goryu and like the base camp of skiing in Goryu and 47. This is also where you have all the shuttle buses including paid buses Line HV-3 heading to other ski areas and free buses circling around the Goryu area. 2/ easy access to Goryu. Walk 500m uphills to Escal Plaza or walk 30m to St Marute bus stop to take the free shuttle bus to Escal Plaza (every 30mins). 3/ Host Hitoshi San is very helpful and resourceful. Pick-up arrangement, discounted ski ticket, discounted onsen ticket (白馬龍神温泉) all add extra value for money. I had a very good time here.
A comfortable place to stay”
I would surely stay at here again if I go skiing at Hakuba Goryu.
Nice location and uncrowded area. European style inns in the area”
Nice location, near the Hakuba ski resort and train station
Warm & Hospitable Pension”
Convenient location near Kamishiro Train Station. The couple who runs the place exude warm and are very hospitable. We took the Snow Shuttle from Narita Airport; and between the people who run the Shuttle service and the hotel, we were picked up on arrival at Kamishiro without us having to even ask. Breakfast and dinner were great. The hotel owner does all the pick up services after our outings; this is much welcome in the cold weather.
Everything is perfect BUT”
The place is very cosy, clean and comfy. The only thing that is off is the toilet smell, though it’s clean - the smell is close to intolerable.
I recommend this hotel!”
It was a very comfortable stay and a delicious breakfast. The staff were friendly and they even gave us hot water on our way home for my toddler’s formula milk. There’s a big open space beside the hotel and the kids really enjoyed playing snow fight and made snowman. It was like an exclusive snow playground for them hahaha...
Fantastic value for the money.”
Really nice couple running the inn. It's a bit dated but everything is clean. Wi-Fi is weak depending on where you are within the facility but manageable. If you can, go for the breakfast; it's affordable and surprisingly well made. You can tell that whoever made it is a natural cook. Would definitely stay here again.
10 min walk from Goryu plaza was ideal, Chauchau is basic but has everything you need, heated dunny seats and a hot tub made it special
Authentic Japanese experience”
Great accommodation, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Location is a bit far from the main and norther hills, however the shuttle buses are decent. If you are only skiing Goryu and 47 it is a great location. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance and delicious breakfast cooked by host at the lodge.
Great service and very close. So friendly the staff were. Arigatou!!
Everything you need.”
Lovely hosts, comfortable room, good bath, good breakfast, good coffee, beautiful atmosphere.
Super friendly staff, amazing breaky and great location!”
Wish we had stayed longer! Thanks for a great stay!
Beautiful hotel with very kind owners. I recommend and will be back!
