HOTEL REVIEW: SHIKI Niseko


Shiki Niseko Serviced Residences is located at 190-4 Abuta-gun, Hokkaido, Japan and has a total of 68 bedrooms. I was also lucky enough to have a chance to try the three-bedroom penthouse apartment on the sixth floor of Shiki.

Trying out local authentic sake for the first time. It was great that the kitchen also included a sake set that I could use.

The 3-Bedroom Penthouse Apartment on the sixth floor of Shiki Niseko. The Mt. Yotei can usually be viewed from the living room on a clear, sunny day.

Every room at Shiki Niseko has its own living room and dining area, as well as a kitchen area.

This Penthouse apartment is perfect for big families. The other side of the living room shows off the Hirafu slopes where everyone can go snowboarding/skiing.

Some apartments also include a hot tub and a very organized and clean bathroom.

And after all these, what makes Shiki Niseko number 1 among 66 specialty lodging in Kutchan-cho is their wonderful hospitality and amazing guest service. All their staff are very friendly and are always willing to help.

VERDICT:

Pros: Great location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and organized rooms, fully furnished

Con: A bit expensive

SHIKI Niseko is 100% highly-recommended. It's super close to all the shops, bars, cafes, and restaurants! All the staff are super friendly and welcoming. They will help for as long and as much as they can and they will try to understand you even at times they can't and address your needs immediately. I love that their rooms are all fully furnished so even though the rate is a bit expensive, you can save up with your expenses by being able to make your own food.

TIP:

For SHIKI Niseko, it's so much better to book directly on their website instead of booking via Online Travel Agents. It's more secure and most oftentimes a lot less expensive! SHIKI's website is www.shikiniseko.com
