"Address Nozawa - recommended"
Good location - 10 meters from the main pedestrian street of Nozawa Onsen, near the main shops of the village. Oyu Onsen (the biggest public Onsen in the village) is about 50 m away and there are probably 3 other onsens within 50-100 m from the hotel - very convenient. They've also got their own private Onsen in the basement, together with washing machines & dryers (free, I believe).
Colour-themed rooms are very comfortable, pretty spacious & in good nick. The kitchenette was very usable, with more than sufficient amount of cooking utensils, crockery, equipment & even some condiments. A very adequate amount of food was provided for breakfast - bread, ham, eggs, apples, cornflakes, milk, orange juice, bottled water & Nespresso coffee.
Address Nozawa is a bit of a hike from either of the 2 main ski lift areas (Nagasaka and Higake), probably a 15-min walk. But that is the downside of staying so close to the "town centre". If you have your own ski/snowboard gear and have to lug it up & down the slope everyday, it can be a pain. But if you rent your gear from one of the ski rental shops near the gondola stations (free overnight storage), or if you pay for lockers for overnight storage, or if you have your own car & drive to the top of the town near Nagasaka gondola station, then it's not a big problem at all.
Staff are friendly, & they can get you lift tickets at a discount. Ski rental at a couple of shops is also discounted if you tell them you're staying at Address Nozawa.
