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.

The location is great and close to train station and outlets, while there are free shuttle bus service to/from the hotel and free coach service between lobby & the cottages. This is our first experience living in the cottage, all of us are surprised by the clean and spacious houses while the view is great with the large-size window in...

Came in the summer and got one of the 4 room cabins at Prince Hotel West. The cabin itself is nice, but do note that there are no aircon in the rooms though they did have 2 mobile stand fans in our cabin. We went in summer but the weather was cool enough that the lack of aircon wasn't an...

Winter in Japan was very interesting. This place offered me a unforgettable experience. For you from tropical country, stay at this area would be nice. Snow is every where. You can feel them in every activity. If you want to take a walk to your cottage, you can have your experience walk in the middle of the snow. The food...

We have been to quite a few ski resorts around the world and this is not one of the best as there's really nothing much to do here. Had a 3 days 2 nights stay at the Karuizawa East Cottage (2 rooms cottage) and it was rather a peaceful and super relaxing stay. Rooms were very very clean and beds...

The hotel is 5-min walk from the huge shopping plaza, and about 15-min walk from Karuizawa Station. If it's too far for you, there's also a shuttle bus from the station to the hotel. Air-conditioning is centrally controlled, so it was stuffy in winter. However, this was easily solved by opening the windows slightly to allow some cold air in....

Everything about this hotel is almost perfect. The location, special design of the wooden cottage, service of the staffs even the price. We love our cottage verymuch that it gives you special feeling. And the garden with sakura everywhere, and mountain view.... Bed quality is very good, but toilet is cold. Not usual for japan standard. Breakfast is quite expensive...

With our two young children, we stayed in this hotel during a week for our first ski holiday. We booked a lodge for 4 people (2 bedrooms) and we don't regret it at all: it is true that lodge is a bit old and there is no internet at all, although we sometimes were able to use main building wifi....
