5 / 5 A great little apartment, very well placed for everything you could want.
We stayed in apartment No. 2 of the Asuka Value block, and it was excellently located only a 5 minute walk to the main road, with the nearest lift being the Ace Family Lift a further few minutes walk away (so getting up the mountain was quick and easy first thing in the morning or coming back at night). A bus stop was outside, maybe 15 metres up the road, so very easy to get to the main lift stations and other parts of the resort.
The apartment itself was clean, comfortable, and well appointed with a bath/shower with seemingly limitless hot water, separate sink, separate toilet (with the essential heated seat), a fridge, and a two ring gas stove, microwave oven and electric kettle. There was no gas oven as part of the cooker. It had plenty of cooking utensils and plates, etc. in the cupboards.
The lounge had two sofas, a large wardrobe/coat rack (and security safe), small coffee table in the centre of the room, and a LCD TV in one corner (with AppleTV with a Netflix service included - handy when it was snowing too much to go out!)
Within the living room was the apartments only gas heater. The two bedrooms off of the living room were quite spacious, with small shelving for bags/clothes, two single beds with soft mattresses and large duvets.
There was no heating in the bedrooms themselves, or in the toilet or bath/shower room, although if you left the doors open the heat from the living room heater would warm them up. The duvets were super-warm though, so we never got cold while in bed, though the bedrooms got 'chilly' during the night - but soon warmed up when the bedroom doors were opened. (The bedrooms and toilet had air vents which, even when closed, were a little drafty (especially in the toilet)).
I guess we could've left the doors open all night to heat the bedrooms, but as we had five people in the apartment (two in each bedroom and a fifth person on a mattress on the living room floor) we closed the doors at night for privacy.
The drying room downstairs was very warm and dried wet clothes/boots/equipment quickly, with a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers off to one side.
On the resort itself, there are great bars and restaurants nearby, and a fairly inexpensive Seicomart supermarket on the main road by the main crossing. The Seicomart contains a ATM cash machine, but it only takes Japanese bank cards, or you can exchange foreign currency for Yen in another machine.
A little further along the road in the Niseko Supermarket & Deli there's an ATM that takes cards from other banks/countries.
If you stay in Niseko, and in the Asuka Value apartments I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time. I would stay here again, and recommend it to others.
