It was the warmest winter to date when we got to Karuizawa. Prince Hotel East Was snowmaking and great beginner slopes for 1st skiers. Hotel and service was great. The twin room size was fairly decent for Japan. The hotsprings were one of the best I tried in the Nagano prefecture. And Kenji-San from the bar - great service. Good... More

Great location if you want to shop at Karuizawa outlet or ski. Not recommended if you like quite place as this place is packed with peoples. Some staffs can speak little english while almost all staffs can't communicate that well in english. I booked for twin room and the room is spacious with living area, however bathroom is small.

This time we booked ourselves a cottage and it was excellent. The cottage we had was just next to the ski slope and you can sit back in the living room and watch the ski activities going on outside. The cottage was cosy and nice, the wooden floors had heaters which provided warmth as you walk around in the cottage,... More

Just went there over Xmas 2015 to take my five-year old son to learn to ski. The room was nicely located on the first floor, and everything was very convenient for a first ski trip. No natural snow (Dec 2015) and all man-made snow, but my kid learned just fine. Three ski schools for kids to choose from, and better... More

Great location - within walking distance to the station and the outlet mall. I believe you can stay at the hotel or rent out cabins - we stayed at the main hotel. On the pricier side, but the hotel is offers great service / good food / good onsen.

It would be more magical if there was snow. The cabin was decent but beds and bedding cover was a tad old fashion. One good thing was the floor was heated which was excellent during winter. The price we paid did not come with breakfast so we paid additional 2100++ per pax for the buffet breakfast. The spread was quite... More

We traveled from Tokyo for a short two night stay for both business and pleasure in the area. Did not have much time for exploring the area but my wife visited the shopping area (mall) nearby and found the shopping experience very nice. I had business in the area so all I can comment on was the main lodge, cabin... More

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
