A good place for direct access to Hakuba
The Shakespeare is ideally situated for hitting the slopes and enjoying the local restaurants. Access to the buses at Hakuba base camp is a 1 minute walk across the street. There are a number of good restaurants nearby, but you should reserve early to get a seat. The Shakespeare can help, and they offer good recommendations on the area. We stayed in the annex building. The carpet in our room was stained and covered with a rug in one spot. There are a lot of early 20s tourists who come to party and hit the slopes, so I suspect the rooms get a lot of damage from this (drinking and snow gear). The beds were clean and comfortable and the heating was good. The included breakfast was good, it's provided by a couple who own a restaurant in the compound. They were really nice. They work pretty hard when there are a lot of guests eating, so it's best to come early or wait till the rush is over. The Shakespeare a good choice if you want easy access to Hakuba's main attractions.

Awesome location, situated very close to the Hakuba Base Camp stop and in the middle of most restaurants. Bed was slightly uncomfortable, I think mainly because the mattress hung over the bed frame... Didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, can't comment there. Staff was super friendly, super helpful. Rooms were clean and big enough. Enjoyed the stay and would return!

Shakespeare Hakuba
Great stay. The front desk had quick communication by email, spoke excellent English, and the shuttle service was excellent, even giving us a lift to the Onsen halfway through our stay. The location was as central as you can get in Echoland, right in the heart of the action and across the road from Hakuba Base Camp bus terminal. That being said, there is a bar out the front which was never an issue until Saturday night when there was a little bit of noise. The room was a decent size by Japanese standards, typical small basic bathroom but everything was clean. The bed was two singles or king singles pushed together, and we could feel the join in the middle. We had a mountain view room and the view to the mountains was beautiful. The building itself is very nice in an old English thatched roof style, and has food, massage and yoga facilities onsite, along with a well setup drying room. Side note about the area: Echoland has no ATM, the closest is in Happo about 15 minutes walk away. This is also where the closest slopes are, or short bus ride or taxi away. There are lots of places to eat but reservations are recommended.

Well I owe the staff an apology. I left a not so great review because of the bed and pillows... The first night I did not sleep well because the mattress was way to hard for me. After I let the front desk know they told Olivia. She mostly manages the property. She went WAY above and beyond remedying the situation. She actually went and bought two pillows that were to the specifications I usually like AND she got a memory foam bed topper!!!!! Seriously amazing person and service. I feel like I’m a guest in her house. I also had a chance to explore the neighborhood and it has really great restaurants and stores close by. Another thing Olivia organized was a free car ride to a beautiful Onsen and pick up. I feel beyond pampered. At first the look of the hotel was a bit dated but the Aloha she gives and the homey atmosphere is really wonderful. I’m I’m lucky enough I will be back.
