The room was immaculately clean with basic necessities like fridge, alarm clock, hair dryer etc. The location of the hotel is a good peaceful 30 mins - 45 mins walk (depending on your pace) from the station/mall. Breakfast was a good mixture of Japanese and Western style, simple yet delicious. Free in-room wifi was very reliable. I had a great... More

My family stayed here for my sister's wedding and we all had a great time here. The rooms are simple and comfortable, and it was always very clean.

My room was clean and could accommodate 3 people. It was also equipped with all the basic necessities. Breakfast is available at only 500 yen. Staff were courteous and helpful. Also, kudos to the inn for providing free lunch for people who were stranded due to the massive snow on 15 Feb 14

I and my family were there early this year. The hotel is kinda value for money in my opinion in terms of service, cleanliness, and location. Yes, the hotel location may be a bit distance from the station and along the way there is nothing at all to catch your interest. However, taxi is available and not so costly.

I was prepared to do alot of walking in Karuizawa so I didn't mind the 2.5km distance between Chisun Inn and Karuizawa Station, which is the center of town and where the complementary bus to the Hoshino area departed. The breakfast buffet (500 yen per person) is only marginally better than the complimentary breakfast at Toyoko Inn. Paying 9000 yen... More

The room I stayed had a strange pee smell in the toilet. Not sure if there is a problem of the sewage system. Other than this, the hotel is quite good. Although it is not located next to a train station or near Karuizawa Ginza Street, it is not at all a problem for us as we rented a car.

The Chisun Inn was simple and clean with friendly and helpful staff who had generally good english. We chose the Inn based on price and also location though on arrival found that though it is in walking distance of the train station it's a pretty long walk and fairly difficult in the snow.
