Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fascinating and nice atmosphere; it reminded me of the good old times, back in the 70’s and 80’s, when I spent every single winter skiing in norther Italy, with my parents first, and then with my friends. And this is also the first set back, as the rooms are somewhat outdated and need some refurbishment, although there is not a singles speck of dust anywhere as Japanese people are very attentive when it comes to hygiene.
The location is astonishing, just on the sky slopes. All you have to do is just get your skis on and ride them straight out of the lobby!
Try and get some of the packages they offer, including dinner and skipass, as the hotel is somewhat out of the town and chances are that you are not really in the mood to venture out in the cold to eat your meal; if not included, the buffet can be somewhat expensive, in the range of over €40. The buffet itself is good enough but does not vary over the days; as a result, you might end up a little bored with food if you plan to stay for a long vacation.
The skis and the whole equipment can be rented and the service is very attentive and efficient. Do not bother to bring your own stuff unless you really hate Salomon (like I do), as it is the only type of equipment that they feature. I managed to get along with it … by the way. My calf will reprimand me for the next six months but I will survive.
Personnel is really friendly and helpful and although not everyone speaks English they will do their best to communicate as efficiently as possible.
There are no proper areas where you can relax and this is really a pity; the two rooms with he huge glass panes are only for restaurant use and the only other public area is occupied by an always almost empty bar. The lobby only features few benches and sofas but even if you manage to conquer one, your reading will be disturbed by the chilly wind gusts coming from the constantly opening and closing of the main door.
The SPA is dreadful … small and the water if full of chlorine. Necessary, I know, when you have some many people in such a small place but my sensitive skin detected immediately.

To get to this hotel you get the bus from Furano Station and make sure it goes to Furano Prince Hotel, as announcements will be made along the way where the bus is stopping.
When we arrived it looked interesting but a bit old. We went to reception to check in and we were assisted by a Trainee and they were quite helpful and did everything to assist us. They did not get upset when one of our group wanted to change to the New Prince Hotel and then they changed their mind to stay at the Prince Hotel instead. This staff member states professional all way and they even assisted us with the time of the shuttle bus to the New Prince Hotel.
At one stage we decided to ask the Bell Captain who was also a Trainee about the bus ,one of us asked and they said the shuttle bus to New Prince Hotel was at 6:30pm not 5:45pm. I was a bit surprised and decided to confirm with them the time and the Bell Captain Trainee became annoyed and raised their voice and told us to go to wait for the shuttle bus at the bus stop. We then went over to reception to confirm the time of the shuttle bus and this staff member came over with us to the Bell Captain and they found out that the Bell Captain did mot realise that there was an extra time table for the shuttle bus and they told us the wrong place to wait which should have been at the lobby neat the front.
The Bell Captain Trainee did not have good customer service as they raised their voice and got annoyed because a couple of us asked them the same question. They also advised us the wrong place to wait which showed either they did not have enough training and could not cope with being asked the same thing a few times.
The other interesting thing about this hotel is that they have real keys for your room instead of keycards. If you went out and thought the door locked itself you were wrong as had the put the key on to lock your door.
The room was quite compact so if you had luggage made it harder to move around. The one good thing about the room was the view from the window. The bathroom was small and the tub had a curtain to stop the water going on the floor and this showed the age of the hotel.
We only stayed one night and felt it was a bit too far from town so you had to take a bus or taxi. The other option was the take the shuttle bus to the New Prince Hotel and look around there.
This hotel is more for skiers so if you enjoy skiing then recommend this hotel but if you not a skier would not recommend this hotel.

There are two Prince hotels in Furano which are close neighbours. Of the two The Furano Prince is less Prince Charming and more Cinderella. The New Furano Prince has the facilities and glitz, while the older Furano Prince is the neglected step-sister. The hotel is designed around the winter ski season and offers a basic recipe of room, ski storage, communal Onsen and restaurant. The buffet breakfast was the highlight, offering a good range of choices and local produce. If you are a serious skier then this might just do it. But there are no frills. It is more dormitory than hotel. The hotel looks its age, and facilities are clearly run down and past their best. The rooms are clean and functional, but feel cramped, and with one small window, are gloomy. There is very limited storage space and none for hanging any small items of washing. The onsite coin laundry would be a busy place in peak season; there are only three machines. The bathroom is a tiny “drop in” box, and if you turn too quickly in the shower, you will be sitting in the hand basin. Furnishings and decoration throughout look well used and worn. There is wifi in public areas, but this appears patchy on the guest floors. This is a hotel in desperate need of a makeover. Cinderella needs her fairy godmother.

We had our third stay in this hotel last month and like our previous two stays, we were in Furano to have fun in the snow. We were not disappointed! There have been no significant changes to the hotel since we first visited in 2008 but the hotel is very comfortable, with extremely comfortable beds. Yes, the rooms are small by Western standards but you expect that in most Japanese hotels. This time we stayed on the second floor of the hotel (in the annex) and those rooms are actually larger. The bathrooms however, are tiny. We love that breakfast is included, as are our lift passes and the biggest bonus for us is that the hotel is truly a ski in/ski out hotel. We love the downstairs locker room where all our ski gear can be stored and dried overnight. There are the usual vending machines so you can stop between runs for a quick warm or cold drink. The public baths are not true onsen, but are a wonderful opportunity to rest up and soak after a long day on the snow. This hotel (as opposed to the New Furano Prince Hotel) is located on the Kitanomine side of the mountain and has access to many more local eateries within walking distance and it's a wonderful opportunity to support local business in the area. One improvement since our last visit in 2010, is that the hotel now has free wi-fi in the lobby and that proved very useful. The hotel decor is a little tired and could do with a refresh but it is by no means dirty. We love that the hotel is quiet and its location is its biggest asset. I am sure we will come back to Furano and if we do, we will seek out the Furano Prince Hotel to stay at again. If you are coming to Furano for the snow, you will not be disappointed with extremely dry powder and an abundance of it. The two ski areas are connected and there is a wide variety of terrain suitable for all ages and abilities and the area is well serviced by chairs, a gondola and a ropeway. The terrain is well groomed, however the resort now leave areas ungroomed for those people seeking a powder experience and have become a little more relaxed about skiing off-piste although technically it is not allowed.

I want to start off by saying that this hotel has some real charm to it. Almost like the grand Budapest hotel feeling to it. It really sets the mood and we loved that. I want to state that you have ski rentals inside of the hotel along with Storage. We got a package deal for 2 nights and 1 day lift ticket for 2 people for a really good price also. We also had a rental car ordered and dropped off at the hotel for us for a day use. This was very nice and helpful. So now let's get to the bad stuff.

The hotel is a bit out dated, you can see this in the bathrooms(old school plunger style flush). The bath rooms are so small, it was easier to go to the public bath to get ready in the morning. This also go for using the restroom.

We had a non smoking room but it's on the same floor as the smoking rooms. So when ever you open your door, smoke comes into your room... so ya, that sucks. Also, the rooms smell like old linen/mold. Could see the black patches on the 1980 wallpaper.

The food is right below average for chain hotels. Breakfast: The eggs are powered and watery, the the over selection is ok. They say "European" but its more Asian then anything. Dinner: make a dinner reservation but you can go early and still get a table. The best seats are near the window but they tend not to give them out to 2 or less people. Food was ok.

The ski lifts are good. They have a weird schedule for when lifts are running. We checked in at 2 and got on the slopes at 3 but the transfer lift that lets you go to the other side was shutting down at 3:45. Just little things like that. Runs are great and the snow is dry and powder. Enjoyed that the most.

Over all the hotel is 80% right. It's the little things that are killing this place. It has the charm and the feeling. Just need to get the basic stuff back to where it should be. If you can do it, go to the new price or something else.

Just checked in today and this is one of the worst hotels my family and I have ever stayed at!!! We have 2 triple twin bed rooms.
So far...
1. I had found a pubic hair on the sink of my bathroom.
2. Air conditioner's filter was so filthy that it doesn't blow any cool air at all. Looked like a wool towel was covering the filter. Maintenance just came and had a look at it, then took the filter. For now it's running with no filter on it and it's still HOT in here. Our room's window is all fogged up, so you know there's some heat in here. Btw, both of our family's rooms are HOT and it is currently 57 degrees F outside.
3. Blankets and pillows are all stained with who knows what?!?
4. Walls are paper thin, you can hear everything from your neighbors...
5. Everything inside the hotel says old, outdated, and very shabby. Couldn't really tell by looking at the outside.
5. Hotel is totally overpriced for what you get...
6. Instead of changing our room they'd rather keep us in here while trying to fix the AC (it's 21:30)...

On the bright side...

The staff are very nice and courteous. The girl at the front desk speaks decent English, she was able to help us with making a dinner reservation.

Sadly, my family and I would definitely not stay here again.

Update: There are hiking trails located on the left side of the hotel (if looking towards the entrance of the hotel). One trail even has a kind of "artsy" feel to it with little sculptures located along the path.

Travel agent booked the wrong hotel - wanted New Furano Prince and got Furano Prince instead, was too disappointed to take pix. Place was difficult to navigate to.

Rooms were very old, and extremely small, so were the beds, of all the twin rooms booked on our trip, this had the smallest bed (plain single instead of super single) so it was difficult for 2A2C to sleep comfortably (kids kept falling off)

The only saving grace was a young gentleman at the reception who spoke exceptionally good fluent english and was extremely helpful - with tips on sightseeing and helping us to navigate and check map code/telephone numbers. Thumbs up for his service!

Overall, I'd definitely go for New Prince hotel instead. They should renovate or rebuild this place entirely!

Expensive but the only five star hotel at furano. The ground facilities are nice and parking was convenient. The rooms were terrible small and the three of us had practically no room to move about with our suitcases inside. Breakfast was awfully crowded but the salmon roe servings were generous. Front desk staff was variable in terms of helpfulness, I was being extra courteous and used google translate but that did not help. This lady at the concierge was probably stressed out at work and after I had waited patiently for a while for advice and help with restaurant booking, I was met with a flat ‘no’ at the end. Luckily I approached other staff and they were fine.

This is literally one of the worst hotels that I have ever been, for the price I paid (US$250 per night). The room is super old, when I sat on the bed it sank. I bet the beds have been used for many, many years. Bathroom is tiny, as tiny as an aeroplane bathroom (no joke!). Everything is so old and poorly maintained. It reminded me of my college dorm. I had a bad night staying there. And there's no wifi in the room. Originally I booked three nights and I had to look for another hotel for my other 2 nights stay cos' I simply cannot stand it.

10 years ago, we stayed here for two nights. Except for the small room size, we had nothing to complain. Therefore, we still choose this hotel this time. However, this hotel seems to have nothing changed for past 10 years. It really needs to be re-decorated and upgraded. Staffs are friendly. Breakfast is OK. Environment is good.
