With rooms bigger than what you find in normal Jap hotels, Prince Karuizawa East is a nice place with ski in ski out facilities. Once you get out of the Karuizawa shinkansen station (south exit), it's a short walk to the shuttle bus station which would whisk you to the hotel lobby. Otherwise, there are taxis waiting at the bottom...

With only a little over an hour of Shinkansen (speed train) from Tokyo, Karuizawa Prince Hotel is really an easy place to go in the winter especially if you are traveling with children. We stayed in a small lodge with two separate rooms and a common sitting area. It is clean and cozy and kids absolutely love it! The beds...

We stayed in the cottage. It is clean and tidy. Bathroom is a bit old and out-dated. Our cottage is quite far from the main reception area. It is up the hill so we had to walk in the snow up the hill which is very tiring especially when we had young children. Not enough provision for the concierge service...

Went in December 2017 with 3 kids. The hotel is part of a larger complex with at least two more hotels of the same name located around five minutes from a really large Outlet Store complex with a lot of name brands such as Gucci, Gap, Nike, Adidas, etc. We don't ski and it was more for my two year...

We stayed in the quad room on the 2nd floor facing the mall. Though you can tell that the room is aging, especially the toilet, it is very clean & we have a comfortable stay. We have 4 luggage but we can only leave 3 open due to the size of the room. Love the big counter top at the...

Booked this close to 9 months in advance but still didn't get a high floor. Room with little view as they are blocked by trees. Bf ok, but the chef was quite grumpy and was reluctant to take special request. Asked for a fried egg and he kept saying long time even without a crowd. He did give eventually but...

My family just wanted to find a skiing resort nearest to Tokyo. Karuizawa is just located 50 minutes away from Tokyo by taking Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo Station. Prince Ski Resort is conveniently located just 5 minutes from the Karuizawa Train Station and there is one big shopping factory outlets (duty free) with many restaurants within walking distance from...

Excellent place to have an early start to the ski season before the peak season. Reasonably good access to food and shopping plaza. Close to Tokyo and Prince Hotel East is surprisingly within walking distance to the train station except if you have plenty of luggage. If you want easy access to the ski slopes Hotel East is the place...

We were glad that we stayed in Karuizawa Prince Hotel East as it has a very convenient location next to the huge outlet mall and walking distance to the JR train station although they do provide a regular bus shuttle from the station. We stayed in the main building and the room was big unlike most hotel rooms in Japan...

Stayed in twin room which was spacious and clean. Hotel is just 2 minutes away from Karuizawa train station by cutting through the shopping mall. The long way will take approx. 10min walk by going round the shopping mall. The hotel provides complimentary shuttle bus to the mall and train station every 30min for those who do not wish to...
