The hotel is very clean and spacious, and of course, near to the prince shopping plaza, so it might be a good choice to stay. But but ... Everything in the hotel costs you extra money, even to use the hot spring ( 1200 yen per person) or to use the table tennis ( I forgot how much!). The breakfast... More

It's for the experience. If you are into "camping" with all the comforts.. This is a nice way to do it. Shopping area near by is a great way to spend the day with so much choice. Food not the best but not the worst either. If you can rent bikes it makes a world of difference and you can... More

We booked this trip from Travelzoo and went there in February. After a 4 hours flight and followed by a 2 hours train ride, we were all exhausted. We were traveling with 3 kids and arrived at the hotel around 7pm. We were escorted to our cottage without any hassle, and was really glad to find that the beds have... More

Hotel staff are nice, polite and professional! I had travelled to Karuizawa 11 years ago, and it is still beautiful as it is.

We first stayed in the log cabin in Karuizawa Prince Hotel East back in 2009. We paid SGD750+ for the log cabin for 2 adults and 2 kids with breakfast and ski passes for 3 nights and never used the ski passes much to our eternal regret. In April this year, a bout of work escapism had me doing a... More

Was luck enough to book a cottage at the last minute stayed at 575 for 3 nights cottages are clean with two rooms with two twin beds. Family room is too small and you need to share the kitchen and the vanity sink. Also it was a bit expensive but worth the money as the cottage is within 5 minute... More

December 16, 2014: We flew into Narita airport, got the Kanto train pass... then to Tokyo Station on the Narita Express.. then onto Karuizawa on the Shinkansen. Two hours on the trains. At Karuizawa station, there's a complimentary green shuttle bus close to 7Eleven that goes directly to the hotel; about 7 min ride every half hour. This shuttle is... More

We stayed 2 nights here on 7-9 Dec 2014. The room is very cozy, clean and great chance of gathering for the family! The warmer provided in the room is warm enough for cold weather. We feel so much at home and the quietness from the hustle bustle city feels great to relax! We will surely come back again!

The location of this hotel is fantastic. We were booked into 2 log cabins, very close to the reception. Check in was easy and they have internal transport around the massive grounds with electric mini vans driving people around. We were so close to everything we didn't need this though. The log cabins were a bit dated perhaps, but everything... More
