Convenient. My choice next time.
This hotel is close to the railway station and bus stops. Therefore, it is easy to travel to various sightseeing locations. The information centre inside the railway station on the side of the hotel (the other side of the station is the Prince outlet plaza) is very helpful and resourceful. Inside the hotel, facilities are basic but very acceptable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast offers a number of choices, though not sumptuous, are sufficient. If I travel to Karuizawa again, this is my first choice of hotels.
