Old hotel near the gondola”

An old hotel (in a good way) with pretty charming neighborhood and is just couple meters away from the gondola.. it's not exactly ski-in ski-out but it's the closest thing to it. Breakfast and dinner is properly japanese. Once you arrived at Zao bus station, make a call to the hotel so they can pick you up. I tried finding the hotel phone number and can't find it and it's a hard long walk in the snow to get to where the hotel is.
