ALPEN ONSEN NISEKO
Alpen Onsen Niseko is located in Upper Hirafu Village on the 1st floor of the Hotel Niseko Alpen. The Alpen hotel was opened in 1965 and is currently operated by the resort. It has 129 Japanese and western style rooms, a public onsen, pool and sauna.
The hot spring water contains sodium, hydrogen carbonate, chlorides and magnesium which are effective for relieving muscle stiffness, pain and fatigue. The Alpen Onsen Niseko has a thoughtfully planned stone interior environment surrounded by Niseko’s beautiful nature. Enjoy the natural stone aesthetic of this hot spring while receiving full body therapy after a day of vigorous skiing activities. It remains one the most endearing elements of Japanese onsens – the ability to merge what is natural outside with what is man made inside. Although this onsen is long past its peak years it continues to charm with its classic onsen layout and nostalgic look. Although there are newer onsens built every year in Niseko – it is the original locations that continue to offer what stands as the true onsen spirit of Niseko.
Within the hotel here are two restaurants, karaoke rooms, tea room, gift shop, ski lockers and free parking. Hotel guests have complete access to all facilities however day-pass guests are limited to the hotel’s front-end facilities. Enjoy the classic onsen experience at Alpen Onsen Niseko.
