We have family checked in hotel and staying in cottage for 3 nights. This is really most awful hotel I ever stayed among of all hotels. No smiles, inconvenient, and not kids friendly place. Don't waste your money and holidays here.

We went to Karuizawa because my children want to see snow and want to play in the snowpark. Since we visited Japan on early December so we decided to go to Prince Snow Resort in Karuizawa which always open earlier than other ski resort. The place is so easy to access, just next to Karuizawa station and only an hour...

The hotel is conveniently located, given that we also rented a car. It is only about a 5 minute drive from the train station. We decided on the Japanese shabu shabu dinner which is at the Prince West, so we also had to drive there from our main hotel. The hotel is rather old, but the Japanese is always good...

The Prince Karuizawa is the best among all Prince hotels in Karuizawa. The Guest Service Center located right next to the JR Karuizawa station has made the service even better. They will arrange a private wagon to transfer you to/from the hotel when the bus service is not immediately available. This private wagon service is not available for guests who...

The room is warm and relax. The breakfast have a fantastic scene and tasty. All workers are friendly. The snow resort is fun too. But the hot spring room is quite chaos due to the large quantity of users.

I am afraid I am at odds of not rating this hotel a high score. The whole experience was only so so. A merit about the Prince Hotel groups is that it occupied a vast area and facilities next to the train station. We arrive early and the reception at the exit of the train station took care of our...

This is a very convenient place to stay if you like playing golf or shopping. We mainly go here for golf every year. This hotel has excellent 5 or 6 golf courses. It has a 9hole course right in front of your window which I believe you can play for free if you are staying at the hotel. Has shuttles...

When it comes to a cozy and relaxed place to stay, the prince karuizawa is really a good choice! It's very easy to get there from Narita or Haneda airport. If you wanna shopping, there is just a big outlet near the karuizawa station. Like to have outdoor activities? Golf court, tennis court are waiting for you. If you like...
