Probably will not appeal to most Westerners; strange mixture of what looks to be a convention hotel in the public rooms, and some lovely private [sleeping] rooms with dark wood and a private place to sit looking out into the woods. We were there in the off-season and the large hotel dining room was like a funeral parlor, complete with...

Karuizawa Mampei Hotel was opened in 1894 after taking over Kameya ryokan. The building is composed of the mixture of Japanese and Westrn design. Alps-room in the main-building is a signboard room of Mampei Hotel. We stayed in this type of room and room in the annex. Comparing the both rooms, we felt it is more comfortable and relaxed in...

This famous classic hotel is a pioneer of western style guesthouses in Karuizawa. Western style and Japanese tradition is elegantly mixed, and their unique atmosphere is one and only. Their rooms and beds are quite large for most Japanese, probably large enough for tall foreign visitors. Very cozy and comfortable. Staying here is an unforgettable experience, but it's worth visiting...

Had a small banquet here - it's close to Karuizawa station. There is definitely a nice atmosphere to it, but overall it's a very old hotel. It seems like the locals would enjoy the place, but not sure if I'd like to come and stay here personally.

I would not recommend Karuizawa as a destination for overseas travellers, but for those living in Tokyo during the hot and humid summer months, it is a great getaway just 1 hour away. The cooler temperature is immediately noticeable when get off the train, and unlike Tokyo, it cools off further in the evenings. Karuizawa has been a summer treat...

We stayed one night at this one of those renowned "classic' hotels, after spending one night nearby Manza Hot Spring. We booked a most reasonably priced room on a room charge only basis at regular rate, calling the hotel direct. The architecture in the entrance and main restaurant are impressive. On our arrival, we hoped to lunch at the main...
