Great location ”

Less than 5 min walk from Echigo Station. A phone call and a mini bus is at Echigo Station to pick us. It’s really helpful as although it’s nearby, the walk up slope to hotel would be challenging with luggage. Breakfast & dinner was good, with variety. Did not use the onsen, so can’t conment on that. Was in the Deluxe Room for 3 (futon style). Room is spacious. Like it that there is a sleeping area, sitting area & a “balcony”. Highly recommend!

Reviewed December 26, 2018

Dear It is 3 minutes on foot from Echigo Yuzawa Station, which is very close but the slope is steep. If you walk with luggage you will get exhausted, so please utilize the pick-up service. If you call me from the east of Echigo Yuzawa Station, I will pick you up in 1 minute.

Good location with nice traditional rooms”

1 min walk to Yuzawa station but it's located on top of a steep incline, so if you have heavy luggages and/or elderly with you, pls just get the staff at tourist info centre in the Yuzawa station to call the hotel to send a van over. Staff are very friendly and polite, switched their greeting to English the moment to checked our room number, little things like these are appreciated. Luggage storage before check-in/after check-out is self-service, there is a free locker area just near the reception. Hotel facilities appear to be very elderly/handicapped friendly. 2 female onsen and 1 male onsen available, for the bigger female one go to the South hall. Room is nice and clean, the overall space is quite good, but the hairdryer is weak and inconvenient to use. Breakfast buffet selection had a good variety but some items ran out quickly (the elderly visitors wake up really early to eat so consider yourself warned) and weren't replenished.

Reviewed November 13, 2018

Dear We have inconvenienced you due to late refreshing of dishes. I am terribly sorry. I will try to raise the speed of replenishment. Although the hair dryer is gradually exchanged, it takes a little more time to complete the exchange of all the rooms. Please understand.

Our large room offers the most wonderful view of Yuzawa's snow capped mountains that we wished we could have stayed longer and wake up with that scene on our window every morning. Just a few steps from the JR Echigo Yuzawa Station. Staff at the front desk was very accommodating; and the hotel had a great onsen facility. We really enjoyed our stay! If we ever go back to Niigata one day, we will surely stay at Yuzawa Grand Hotel.

We love the hot spring bath. with the cold weather in the area, we really enjoy soaking ourselves in the outdoor bath with the snow pouring right into our heads. the staff is very helpful & nice even with limited english speaking capability. Location is very good. It is right the opposite of the train station & they have a shuttle bus to the ski resorts every 30 minutes or so.

I have sent message to the hotel for the room arrangement before arrival but no reply from hotel. The staff here are nice but not flexibility enough to handle the room arrangement. The location is near to JR shinkansan station but there is a slope which is nightmare to guest at snowing condition. There are free luggage storage, the room is a bit old, the onsen does not have towel provided and we need to take the tower from room. The breakfast is very simple and not as good as reported by other guest, the choice of food is very limited actually.

Reviewed February 15, 2019

Dear I am sorry that I can not help you with satisfying accommodation. I think that the guidance in advance was not enough, but if you arrive at Echigo Yuzawa station you will be picked up as soon as you can call the hotel. You do not need to climb a hopeless slope with heavy baggage. For meal we will make efforts to offer more touching menu than now.

What we love about Yuzawa Grand Hotel: proximity to the Echigo-yuzawa train station (5min walk or less!), choice of 2 onsens with an amazing shampoo bar selection and a free drink between 3-6pm (orange juice, beer or sake), free amazake (a warm, slightly fermented rice drink perfect for filling your tummy after skiing) in the afternoon, super comfortable bed sheets. Try a Japanese room for a more "authentic" experience! We did and had the most pleasant sleep in ages. It was our 2nd time to stay in Yuzawa Grand, and it definitely won't be our last!

Excellent location near the Yuzawa train station. Rooms were comfortable and quite big for Japanese standards. Bit on the pricey side though. The hotel's onsens are perfect at the end of the day after hitting the slopes. They also provide a free warm porridge-like snack in the afternoons (I forget what it's called, but it's comforting to drink on a winter's day).

Experiencing Japanese traditional living in 1 place, only 1.5 hr away from Tokyo. ”

I travelled with my husband and 4 yo daughter. It's an easy gateaway from Tokyo to experience Japanese traditional life in a nice Japan mountain area. We stayed in Japanese style room, sleeping in tatami with pretty snow covered mountain/hill, we went to the hotel's private onsen day and night, had good selection of Japanese breakfast at the hotel. There's free shuttle bus service near the hotel to get to Gala Yuzawa. And the hotel is right infront of Echigo Yuzawa Station. So it's just perfect to travel with kids, since what we're looking for is anything convenient and easy to travel to but also giving us a memorable experience in Japan

Stayed for a couple of days when skiing at Echigo Gala. It was the end of the season so the hotel was quiet. Don't be put off by the exterior of the hotel, the rooms are beautiful and spacious with snacks and tea put out each day, beds made up for you. The public areas are comfortable and the onsen is gorgeous, with indoor and outdoor pools and free toiletries. The service from staff is exceptional, and although th decor needs a refresh I would recommend this hotel . It is centrally located and near the rail station and a good range of restaurants and bars.

Not a smooth check-in”

Onsen, setting, view from the room

The hotel itself is OK and I enjoyed the 'onsen' experience. However the over-officious receptionist threatened to ruin our stay. We had booked a triple room, mistakenly thinking that this would entitle my wife and child to stay there (It was much more expensive than the double room and equal to a family room for 4 at The Disney hotel in Tokyo and 2 double rooms at the JAL hotel near the airport). However we were told, after waiting for one hour, that this was not actually the case and we would have to pay what was almost double the price of the room again as all adults are chargeable and any person over the age of 1 was an adult!! The hotel called Agoda who managed to broker a deal for us that meant it was at least reasonable. I would not stay at this hotel again.
