Stayed in one of the 4-bedroom cabins as part of a family skiing trip. Easy access to the ski slopes, either walk or take the shuttle, and an easy walk down into Karuizawa town, well worth exploring.. Beautiful to wake up in the cabins among the trees - very warm and comfortable inside despite the cold outside, and we were...

Stayed four nights in 4 bedroom cabin during the week following Chinese New Year... and it was my worst ski trip in over 20 years. Highlights (or rather low-lights): Poor value for money. Food is embarrassingly bad for Japan. "Mountain" is really just a hill. Cabin is barebones. Painful transport to get from train station to cabin if lugging small...

During our family trip to Tokyo, we went to the Karuizawa Prince Hotel and Ski Resort for a 2 days 1 night stay. The feeling is mixed, it is conveniently connected to Tokyo by JR, it has a pretty big factory outlet, but it has a poorly managed ski resort center. It took us only 1.5 hour from Tokyo to...

It's not a good place when you want to relax during Chinese New Year. Too crowded. The lobby was just like a market, many many people there. The overcrowded shuttle bus was another nightmare. There were 3 breakfast restaurants (New York-buffet, Asama-buffet, and one Japanese style.) I recommend to Asama instead of New York, though New York was more elegant....

After enjoy two nights staying at Komoro Si (小諸市)hotel (Nakada Nasou 中棚庄人文別館), we shift to Prince hotels & Resorts,Karuizawa for last day's program. Actually, for the past two decades, I had many experiences to stay at Prince hotel which it spreads in whole Japan region. However, this hotel with full phytoncide air is able to wake you up early. Finally,...

We stayed in the 2 room cottage for 3 nights. The room is clean, spacious with comfortable heating. Sound-proof is good and we couldn't hear anything from next door. Staff is polite, accommodating and speak good English! However, there is no night ski area around hotel west and not a lot of choices for food. East hotel maybe a better...

The rooms are reasonably spacious by Japan standards. Great value for money. Connected to the shopping centre and station by a regular shuttle service so is easy to get to. The check in time was 3pm, and check out time 10 which I found a bit restrictive as all the shops open at 10. So you can't pop over to...

This is the proper place to stay in Karuizawa especially if you are here for a skiing or just to enjoy yhe hustle and bustle of Tokyo. Short trip by Shinkansen from Tokyo and you're in Karuizawa. The hotel was great, quiet, a bit outdated but everything works. Room was spacious, staffs and the whole crew greeted and cater us...

We stayed in the 4 bedroom cottage - perfect fit for 6 adults and 7 kids (6 mths - 6yrs). The place was spacious and all bedrooms comes with their own bathtubs. Our cottage was overlooking a lake and we could see the mountain at the back. Lovely view to enjoy a cup of coffee at the balcony. Commuting is...

Karuizawa Prince West was the cheapest of the 3 Prince hotels near the shopping outlet. Hence, its lobby was full of guests. We opted for a twin room in the main building without breakfast for 1 night. The room was fairly spacious and came with two comfortable single beds. The wash basin is located right across the bathroom. Our stay...

“Choose rooms over cottages in cold weather or winter seasons, as they offer more warmth and closer to everything you need.”
