If ever there were a chance to compare hotels to the British Monarchy then the two Prince Hotels in Furano would be it. The original, or “Old” Prince would be the equivalent of Prince Charles – it’s been around for a while, has perhaps seen better days (though still scrubs up OK) and it occupies a prime location. The “New” Furano Prince Hotel therefore would be Prince William – younger, better looking, well-loved and enjoys the spotlight much more than its father.

But in all seriousness, the “Old” Prince is a decent hotel with rooms that are well-maintained, comfortable and clean. The hotel has a very friendly and homey atmosphere maybe because the guests here are not too fussy and are more laid back. It does not have an international ambiance compared to the New Prince hotel and you see more locals staying here.

Furano Prince Hotel has four types of rooms. Scout does not recommend the Twin B Rooms simply because they’re so small and you will have to fight for space with all your gear – and that would even be with just one in the room. The Twin A Rooms are more spacious and comfortable. All the twin rooms have their own bathroom and shower. The Maisonette Room and the Maisonette Suite Rooms are very comfortable and roomy and span across two floors. Scout recommends the Maisonette Suite Rooms which feature a living area downstairs and large beds upstairs. The Maisonette Room does have a living area too but it feels little like a train carriage as the room consists of two sofas facing each other (they can be made into beds).

Scout recommends the rooms located in the annex building but do bear in mind that the annex building does not have any lifts except for a suitcase elevator. All the rooms have views of the valley, snow banks or forests.

The main restaurant serves up dinner and breakfast, and is also a great stop for skiers to have lunch.  You can also enjoy a few drinks while taking in the great views from the bar. If you want to use the wifi you’ll be restricted to the rather uncomfortable chairs in the lobby. The hotel has a hot bath area but this is not a natural onsen.

Furano Prince Hotel cannot be compared to New Prince Hotel in terms of facilities and luxuriousness, but it has clean and comfortable rooms, a fantastic location and is very friendly on the wallet!

Who should stay here

Furano Prince Hotel is great for those who want a ski-in, ski-out location and hotel facilities on a tighter budget, and aren’t particularly fussy.
