My brother and I stayed at The Prince Karuizawa for a total of 2 nights and I must say it was a great experiment and the service was impeccable. When you arrive at the station, head down to their concierge place inside the shopping centre where you can drop your luggages off and they will deliver them to the hotel... More

This is a classy high-end hotel nestled in the huzle and nuzzle of the Karuizawa skiing grounds. Upon arrival, my daughter and I are welcomed by open fire and lasses of bubbly and juices. It is private, exclusive and have easily accessible spas. We were given free vouchers to a spa treatment which we had to is as we need... More

It's no fault of theirs when I book the wrong date, I overlook and booked Nov instead of Dec, I appeal for their understanding as it was a genuine mistake but they won't even bother... The total cost is ¥230,000 for a night... What a bummer for a start to a holiday...

There are few choices of Prince Hotels in Karuizawa. Fortunately I have stayed at most of them except for their Villa. I started my stays a few years ago with WEST, probably their most economical status. Then I stayed at EAST, which I was pretty happy with. Then came ASAMA, very very nice but at a price. I ventured out... More

Good for a short gateaway place. View to the golf course and quiet. And the shuttle bus hotel easy to catch. Service is ok although is a little bit difficult to communicate as not many staff can speak English.

To get here take the shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo station heading towards nagano. There are many trains a day on the nagano line, the last one is around 9 -10 pm. If you are late, the complimentary buses do not operate and you will have to take a taxi. Do take note you booked the prince hotel west or... More

Have to stay there as part of a group attending a sport tournament. I understand the original ambition to create an idyllic, norwegian wood shacks in forest setting for this ski resort place. The place is right beside a massive outlet mall which kind of beats the " natural setting" feel but probably is the biggest draw with 90 min... More

Stayed at the Villas for 3 nights. Very comfortable and the service at the villa and lounge were outstanding. Food service available throughout the day. Bikes for use. Onsen was nice. Shopping nearby. Ski slopes just behind. Worth the visit. And certainly worth effort to come. Language may be an issue. Most staff speak English. Some struggle but they try... More

The Prince Karuizawa is one of a group of Prince hotels in the town (and in the same golfing area to the south of the train station), creating a giant resort area with a variety of restaurants and activities centred around golf in the summer and winter sports during the snow season. The hotel offers rooms which are spacious, spotlessly... More

We stayed at the Prince hotel during the World Amateur Team Golf Championship. The hotel is good, very quiet, and offers shuttle busses to the mall, train station and other hotels. The breakfast is good (if included). Otherwise, the restaurant is very expensive (over $150 per person). The staff has very limited english conversation. Nothing to do at night. We... More
