This was our first stay in Kyu Karuizawa Hotel despite a number of previous visits to Karuizawa and it turned out to be a very pleasant experience. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance from JR station and the shopping streets. The modern and tasteful decor of the lobby/reception gave us a very good first impression. The staff are...

Located about 3min by car from the Karuizawa station. The hotel is extremely helpful in picking us up by van to and from the hotel. Ahead of time, they sent us numerous emails to update us about weather, dining, activities, and transportation. Service is phenomenal here and you feel like it's very personalized service. The room was spacious with high...

We were here for 2 nights in late October. We picked Karuizawa as we wanted to see some Fall colours and the town is high enough in the mountains that the trees start turning before Tokyo’s. If you arrive in Karuizawa by train, there are 2 exits out of the train station – take the north exit. We took the...

This hotel has a hidden gem. The manager and his team is amazing. Here is the story...it was snowing hard on the day we checked out from the hotel. We had no experience driving on snow, had no snow tires, and yet we wanted to continue our drive to Nikko. When Mr Okawa knew about the plan, he was concerned...

This was just a one-night stay over a Japanese public holiday weekend so we were prepared to pay a premium price for a hotel that we had heard good things about. We weren't disappointed. The check-in experience got us off to a great start - a complimentary glass of champagne and small treat to eat as we sat in very...

Wonderful experience with this newly renovated boutique hotel over the Silver Week holiday weekend in September. Service was on par with top quality hotels we've experienced in world cities, Paris, NY, Tokyo. High quality amenities, everything in the mini-bar free, a butler staff that caters to you from check in to check out. In fact, very kind staff all around,...

Recommended by my colleagues in Tokyo, we booked a junior suite in this hotel. My 9 year old daughter and I checked in on late Tuesday. Hotel provides pick up service from station. Lobby is nice.

The renovated lobby is very stylish, both check-in and check-out were done efficiently. We are a family of 3, booked the Deluxe Japanese Western room. The room was a bit dated, but was spotless. The beds were extremely comfortable, our teenager slept on a futon in the tatami area. The minibar offers a lot of free drinks, incl sodas, juices...

We chose this hotel for our family tour. This hotel is luxury and elegant. The service is very good. The cuisine is amazingly delicious and creative. I like this hotel very much. All snacks in the room are free. The bathroom is smaller.

“Mini suites have a balcony with a table and chairs. The hotel is small (50 rooms), with just 2 floors, so all rooms are quite nice.”
