"I have always stayed in other hotels in Japan during my previous visits, but decided to try APA hotel this time during our skii trip in Karuizawa. I am a frequent traveler and love to explore hotels to evaluate the level of service. My room preference was given and the room is bigger than what we have expected as compared to other hotels in Japan which is quite small. I would definitely recommend this hotel in terms of facilities and cleanliness. Only, I hope the Front Desk staff would be a little more helpful. I approached a staff to inquire regarding the shuttle bus to Karuizawa skii resort but was plainly told "No". He could have offered directions or alternatives to help. Japanese people are always nice and polite. And it was a bit disappointment that I have encountered a not so nice staff for the first time in Japan in APA hotel."

"There was shuttle bus around every 20mins from Karuizawa Station going to different parts of the hotel until 9PM so going to and from the station was not a problem. Checkin and checkout was also surprisingly very fast. I reserved one of the west cottages for an overnight stay for 3 people. When we arrived in the Hotel, the receptionist told us that if we do not smoke, we will be moved to a larger non-smoking room. We didn't expected that "larger" meant a room for 6 people! (the cottage has 6 beds, 6 slippers, 3 toilet, etc). It was very nice. Our cottage was a little far from the main part of the hotel so a staff drove us to the cottage (by a small car) and picked us up immediately when we called and said we wanted to see the souvenir shop. The souvenir shop was very good. We were surprised to see so many varieties of Karuizawa/Nagano specialties, it was like a summary of the shopping streets. Some of these we saw while going around Karuizawa and the price is the same in Shopping Street and in the Prince Hotel Souvenir shop. The only bad point is the insects. Since the cottage is in the middle of a field, there were some insects (dead and alive) on some parts of the room. The room is equipped with an insect spray but when there was a time when the insect was too large/fast for us to handle, we called a staff and they came and took care of it immediately, so maybe this is still a plus point for them."

"We made many trips to Karuizawa and each time we would stay a few days at the Prince (west, east, etc). We prefer the east for the winter lodge experience and the main for the used of onsen. Our experience of the west was not good at all, we felt very unwelcome there, which was not a common experience in Japan. We like the location of this "hotel", close to the station, food court/outlets, the outlet malls and the convenient shuttle service. Skiing was nice, right at the door steps, there were English instructors for beginners too. "

"I booked this hotel during my April trip to Karuizawa. Hotel is very conveniently located near a nice supermarket and not too far from the station. Shuttle bus to and from the station is running all day. If you have a car, there’re plenty of parking spaces. Beside nice apartment style room with kitchen, what I like are the friendliness of all staffs and huge public bath in the basement. Bicycles ate available for rent too. Rate was good too when I stayed. Rooms are duper spacious. Great stay. I recommend this hotel to anyone going to Karuizawa with family. "

"We were foreigners and rented a car driving from Haneda to Karuizawa. A couple with one young child. The driving was about 4 hours, including the time spent in R&R. Many R&Rs with clean restrooms and nice food court along the journey. The Prince Karuizawa is a big complex with The Prince Karuizawa Hotel, Hotel East, Hotel West, Shopping Plaza, Golf course, skiing resort, etc. We stayed in The Prince Karuizawa Hotel which is at the Golf course area. Pros: - A very quiet and tranquil place. It faces the Golf course with a small lake in front of the room’s full size window. - Room is spacious and has a small kitchenette. Bath tub is very clean. Bath salt and amenities are supplied sufficiently. - Free bicycle rental for both adults & children. The cycling path is nature feel but hotel shuttles may pass by. Therefore need to be cautious. - The breakfast is great. The restaurant inside this hotel building has a fantastic view. Food is good. You can also choose other restaurants in the West or East hotels. - The shopping plaza has many brands and every shop is decorated nicely. The items are trendy. Very good shopping experience there. The food there is also good and price reasonable. - The Onsen is great because it’s very clean and comfortable. It’s not big but very cosy. Water dispenser with hot and cold water for drinking. Our 4 years old daughter loved the hot spring very much. Cons: - However, the Onsen is at the East hotel which is about 6 mins driving. Otherwise you need to take hotel shuttle. In cold weather, it’s not so enjoying to walk that much. - The shopping plaza is also walking distance from the East hotel. The train station is also nearer to the East. Thus I would prefer to stay in the East if there is another time! - We arrived in April. It’s still very cold and the trees are barren. Not greenery at all. Overall, I still like Karuizawa because it has both sceneries, Onsen and shopping but think Summer/Autumn time should be better season there. "

"The place is a little bit far from Karuizawa station but we enjoyed the walk along Karuizawa Hon-Dori. At night, the surrounding area is also dark. We made use of our phone flashlights to find our way to the lodge. Staffs were very friendly and accommodating. They even gave us a ride going back to Karuizawa Station after we checked out. We slept well. However we didn’t expect that the place only have shared bath and toilet rooms. "
