Monkey Rider
Reviewed 17 January 2010

I stayed at Monkey Rider in February 2009. I had a fantastic stay and would recommend it to anyone.

The casual lodge like atmosphere made our stay very pleasant. The communal lounge/bar has plenty of space, the massive communal kitchen was well organized, social and a great way to save a bit of cash. Great access to shuttles and local attractions. The staff were helpful & knowledgeable and most importantly the place was clean and warm!

The Monkey Rider was as true.... a Japanese experience you can get from a western run hotel. Set amongst the snow covered trees in the small Japanese country style town of Echoland. Very comfortable and accomadating! I'm back there in feb, can't wait!

Was recommended by a friend to stay here and was not disappointed! Staff are awesome and extremely helpful. Rooms are comfortable, lounge area is great to unwind at the end of the day, close to shops and easy access to transport to happo-one. Great vibe about the place!

Stayed in one of their rooms, was very clean and comfortable, lots of windows making it very bright. It had a good clean private bathroom with plenty of water pressure and hot water. Wifi available throughout the lodge.

Lodge had a great lounge area with a bar, TV, great place to wind down after a days skiing and catch up with fellow skiers. Crowd is very easy going, interesting, good fun but not too wild so you can still relax.

Only thing I'd say is drying room is downstairs so had to walk down there twice a day to drop my gear off and retrieve it, but then again at least it had a drying room!

Location is unbeatable, just a short stroll away from great restaurants, bars, onsens, transport and supermarket.

Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area.
