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 The hotel was great, quiet, a bit outdated but everything works.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...

The hotel is set in a huge compound with lots of greeneries - it is very convenient to the Karuizawa train station which is about 1 hour train from Tokyo via Shinkansen. The hotel is also conveniently located near the outlet shopping and there are complimentary buses from the hotel that takes you to the outlet at regular timings. The...

Pro - nice villa, ski facilities, close to huge shopping mall, shuttle bus. Room is quite clean. Cons - room amenities are quite dated. Bed is not so comfy. Long waiting time to check in and check out.

We stayed at Karuizawa Prince Hotel West for two nights from 18-20 Dec. Location-wise it was possibly the hotel the closest to the shopping mall and train. There is a shuttle bus that transports you from the hotel to other parts of the area under the Prince chain and also the main train station. However we chose to walk which...

Great restaurants featuring japanese kaiseki meals with a good choice of sake. The rooms are quite generous in space and very comfortable beds. Daily shuttle service to the outlet mall and train station make it very convenient. Getting to Karuizawa is so much easier now with the new shinkansen line.
