We stayed 2 nights in Hoshinoya Karuizawa where the room is exactly as the photos posted in their websites. The premise is quiet and clean especially when it was not crowded with people. I extremely like to spend some time @ their library where u feel relax to enjoy cups of complimentary drinks and snacks. We joined the nature watching and enjoyed it very much. With an mountain and forest so close, we definitely enjoyed the peaceful environment very much. All the staff are young and cheerful, but some lack of experience and could not provide information. We stayed within the premise during our stay there, so no problem with the non frequent bus to train station.
