Property Spotlight: Mountainside Palace
Unbeatable value in upper Hirafu.
Mountainside Palace has the best-priced apartments in upper Hirafu. Learn more about the location, advantages, and who should stay in these cozy rooms.
Summer views of Mt. Yotei out of Mountainside Palace
This is Mountainside Palace’s biggest advantage. You can’t get any more central in Hirafu. Located just off highway 343 and one block away from the main Hirafu intersection, everything is at your fingertips. A short walk will reward you with the best selection of Hirafu’s famous restaurants, shops, bars, and more. Moreover, just a short walk can take you to any of Grand Hirafu Resort’s base ski lifts. Getting around Niseko in general can be difficult without a car. Living outside of the village requires riding a bus (if there is one near your accommodation), or even a taxi if you stay out after the buses finish running. Living in the center of the action gives you access to everything you need, and will save you time and money by avoiding transportation costs. This prime Hirafu location is amazing for any type of Niseko visitor, whether you came for the legendary powder or the incredible food culture.
Mountainside Palace features 3 types of 2-bedroom apartments depending on what suits guests’ needs. Cozy and clean styling make these apartments instantly feel like home. The Premium 2 Bedroom Apartment offers views of the ski slopes on its balcony, as well as a jet bath in the main bathroom to let you relax after a big day of skiing. The Deluxe 2 Bedroom boasts views of the majestic Mt. Yotei. The perfect accommodation for families would be the Premium 2 Bedroom Apartment with Family Room. The second apartment is fitted with bunk beds to allow more space for the kids.
The bunk bed room makes MSP the perfect accommodation for families
