I am afraid I am at odds of not rating this hotel a high score. The whole experience was only so so. A merit about the Prince Hotel groups is that it occupied a vast area and facilities next to the train station. We arrive early and the reception at the exit of the train station took care of our...

This is a very convenient place to stay if you like playing golf or shopping. We mainly go here for golf every year. This hotel has excellent 5 or 6 golf courses. It has a 9hole course right in front of your window which I believe you can play for free if you are staying at the hotel. Has shuttles... More

When it comes to a cozy and relaxed place to stay, the prince karuizawa is really a good choice! It's very easy to get there from Narita or Haneda airport. If you wanna shopping, there is just a big outlet near the karuizawa station. Like to have outdoor activities? Golf court, tennis court are waiting for you. If you like... More

This place has a certain class to it that the other prince properties in Karuizawa do not share. The warm reception and service was great. The good points were the excellent service and fantastic breakfast. The restaurant had a lovely view and could spend hours sitting there. They have the option to rent cycles for free during the stay. Great... More

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.
