When you are staying in Whakapapa, you have just choice of two hotels: Chateau Tongariro Hotel and Skotel Alpine resort. They are in short walking distance from the Naked bus stop, both quite big. Though their style is quite different. I stayed in Skotel and will describe it a little bit. It was built as a lodge for skiers coming to that area to ski in winter and later became a three star hotel. You can feel that immediately after entering. All in all my stay was nice except weather which spoiled everything. Meaning I have to come back some other time in good weather.
