Quaint lil place, the rooms are on the smaller side, with a loft on the top to fit more people, the ladder is kinda steep but not an issue for skiiers. As with all jap accomms the size is still reasonable and the host is very friendly and helpful There is a toilet in the room but no shower. There is a public bath and osen in the inn, pretty big for the size of the inn. There is a really large dry room at the basement The breakfast was really interesting, you get to "cook" your own meals and the sitting area is huge too
Even closer to the lifts than the big hotel. The rooms are simple but have everything you need. The communal bath is large and always spotless. You can have dinner here or eat nearby. The ski hire place next door (run by more Aussies taking over the town) had a good range of near new looking gear. Owners were very friendly and sorted all our lift passes (they have good arrangements for skiing on the day you leave). Language was no problem as they had a very nifty google translate thing that did the job. A good local option.
地點超好，離斑尾高原飯店很近。離纜車也很近。 客房乾淨，內有洗手台與馬桶。浴室為公用。環境清潔。暖氣足。 大廳有免費按摩椅可以使用，相當舒適。 旅館也提供免費洗衣機服務，比起其他旅館需要投幣，對滑雪旅客來說相當友善。 乾燥室寬敞。 每天下午回到旅館也有免費且種類繁多的飲料可以自由取用，包含咖啡.熱可可.各國的茶。每天早餐也是豐盛種類繁多。讓人期待。
We are a family of 4 and recently spent 10 fabulous days at Annex Aburaya. The hosts were fantastic and great food! The buffet breakfasts, with both japanese and western food available, were great and the dinners (pre-booked) were the best in Madarao. The location of this lodge makes it unbeatable, located directly across from the ski lift and within walking distance of restaurants and bars. Our loft bedroom was great for the 4 of us with the kids up in the loft. A clean and comfortable lodge with amazing in-house onsens - a favourite after a hard out day skiing the Madarao powder.....and there is lots of it! Very fond memories to take away and to make plans to return next year! Totally recommend.
A great place. Super close to main chair lift , rentals and transit. Our room had 2 western beds and two tatami rolls. It is a Ryokan. Rooms are tight and perfect. We did stay in a family room.it has a loft. The location is second to none. The building is a plain snow appropriate accommodation with drying room and onsen downstairs. Rooms have their own toilet but share bathrooms (onsen). The accommodation is not 'bling bling' but homely. Hosts are super hosts. Keen to help with anything they could. When we arrived they gave us two rooms because 'they were not fully booked out'. For no reason other than they thought it may be a bit cramped for a week. It was at no charge of course. Dinner was great but required a booking. Breakfast was included and was a mostly Japanese style smorgasbord. And very very good As mentioned the hosts truely made this accommodation great. The building itself has dated furnishings but not once could we complain of something being wrong or uncomfortable... Our stay was perfect Lift tickets are cheaper from the accommodation than the regular ticket counter of the resort. Other guests who came and left during our long week stay were locals with kids and a group of elderly skiers (who were utterly amazing skiers) and some internationals. Unfortunately I had an accident on mountain and had to go to hospital. AFTER going to first aid I went to catch a bus or taxi to town and then saw the manager (Massa) of Annex Abruya running to find me and drive me to hospital where he did stay with me and fill out all my paperwork (in hospital in Japanese) and then hang with me and drive me home. Unexpected super host. And then because we travel with kids the hosts then drove us to the Shinkansen. Friendly, homely, great experience.…
