The room is warm and relax. The breakfast have a fantastic scene and tasty. All workers are friendly. The snow resort is fun too. But the hot spring room is quite chaos due to the large quantity of users.

I am afraid I am at odds of not rating this hotel a high score. The whole experience was only so so. A merit about the Prince Hotel groups is that it occupied a vast area and facilities next to the train station. We arrive early and the reception at the exit of the train station took care of our...

This is a very convenient place to stay if you like playing golf or shopping. We mainly go here for golf every year. This hotel has excellent 5 or 6 golf courses. It has a 9hole course right in front of your window which I believe you can play for free if you are staying at the hotel. Has shuttles...

When it comes to a cozy and relaxed place to stay, the prince karuizawa is really a good choice! It's very easy to get there from Narita or Haneda airport. If you wanna shopping, there is just a big outlet near the karuizawa station. Like to have outdoor activities? Golf court, tennis court are waiting for you. If you like...

This place has a certain class to it that the other prince properties in Karuizawa do not share. The warm reception and service was great. The good points were the excellent service and fantastic breakfast. The restaurant had a lovely view and could spend hours sitting there. They have the option to rent cycles for free during the stay. Great...

My brother and I stayed at The Prince Karuizawa for a total of 2 nights and I must say it was a great experiment and the service was impeccable. When you arrive at the station, head down to their concierge place inside the shopping centre where you can drop your luggages off and they will deliver them to the hotel...

This is a classy high-end hotel nestled in the huzle and nuzzle of the Karuizawa skiing grounds. Upon arrival, my daughter and I are welcomed by open fire and lasses of bubbly and juices.

It's no fault of theirs when I book the wrong date, I overlook and booked Nov instead of Dec, I appeal for their understanding as it was a genuine mistake but they won't even bother... The total cost is ¥230,000 for a night... What a bummer for a start to a holiday...
