Nice hotel but needs more frequent shuttle service
Everything was perfect except the shuttle service runs only every 30 minutes, and extremely packed with people. Would have been even more perfect if the hotel could run every 15 minutes shuttle so we can enjoy the onsen in evening as it is far from karuizawa prince hotel.

Prompt and attentive service staff. You get free transfers to anywhere within the Prince establishments. Big and comfortable room, with a spacious and beautiful lobby. Of course the natural surrounding is pleasing to the eyes.

Room is spacious and the view is excellent! The environment is fantastic and quiet. The staff are professional, nice & helpful. Breakfast is good. The only negative comment I can give is that the hotel is a bit old & the sofa inside the room is not clean from its appearance!
