The renovated lobby is very stylish, both check-in and check-out were done efficiently. We are a family of 3, booked the Deluxe Japanese Western room. The room was a bit dated, but was spotless. The beds were extremely comfortable, our teenager slept on a futon in the tatami area. The minibar offers a lot of free drinks, incl sodas, juices... More

We chose this hotel for our family tour. This hotel is luxury and elegant. The service is very good. The cuisine is amazingly delicious and creative. I like this hotel very much. All snacks in the room are free. The bathroom is smaller.

We chose to stay in Karuizawa for Christmas as we wanted to be in a smaller town and away from the busy lifestyle of the cities. Karuizawa was a great choice and this hotel was fabulous!

A friend from Japan recommended this hotel to me. We had a wonderful stay, and amazing meals!! It's a small establishment hidden in the old part of Karuizawa, 2 mins walk from Ginze Karuizawa. If you are looking for facilities like swimming pool, gym and onsen spa, this is not the place. It has recently been remodelled so the lobby... More

This is our first time to Karuizawa. Purpose is for skiing. That's quite surprising to find that the town is so small and quiet, especially on weekdays. Some shops and restaurants are only open in summer time and on weekends. I have booked a hotel called Kyu Karuizawa because it could offer a room for 4 persons. My children are... More

We have had a wonderful time in Karuizawa. This hotel is hidden from the main street. It is a bit aged but well maintained. Big room and nice view from the balcony. Staff are really helpful! Buffet breakfast is really nice too! Very close to the main shopping street and plenty of restaurants around.
