I’m thinking to stay over in Karuizawa this spring with my family after the shopping. Can anyone recommend some accommodations that are close to Karuizawa Ginza or outlet shop? My budget is around 15,000yen per person per night.

After the shipping at outlet shop in Karuizawa this spring, I’m planning to stay overnight there and then go home. Our budget for the accommodations is strictly 15,000yen per person so it doesn’t matter if meals are included or not. I’m totally fine if we can spend comfortable and relaxing time there. It’d be great if the accommodation is close to Karuizawa Ginza and outlet shop. I guess Mampei hotel costs more than 20,000yen, however, I’d like to hear the special way to be able to stay within our budget. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Near

I recommend Karuizawa Prince Hotel East. This hotel has good access to outlet and you can also have a relaxed time. I think this is the best hotel for you. The facilities at the hotel are great and suitable for family trip. You can soak in a hot spring for free of charge. I recommend this hotel.

I highly recommend this hotel.

If you want to stay at a hotel near outlet, I recommend this hotel. It’s actually not even ‘near’ because it’s connected directly to the outlet. Outlet even seems like a shopping mall which is part of this hotel. This hotel sets up the rank on their rooms. I think you can stay at cheapest room with around 15,000yen. I think this room is actually enough to stay at.

A standard hotel near outlet

I like this hotel because it’s close to outlet and I can take a bath with hot spring as much as I want. I also like the size of the hotel and the numbers of restaurants. The location of this hotel is very good so I could enjoy exploring around Karuizawa. It was very convenient to go shopping to outlet because the bus stop is right in front of this hotel.

A perfect hotel for shopping

Outlet is nearby and I think this hotel is a perfect place for those who want to enjoy shopping and taking a bath. The dishes at the buffet are high quality and very delicious, even though there aren’t many different dishes. The room is spacious so you can have a relaxed time. The room is clean and tidy.

Convenient for the sightseeing in Karuizawa

It takes about 2mins by car from Karuizawa station to get to this hotel. Outlet is nearby so it’s convenient for shopping as well.
In addition, it’s easy to access to Karuizawa Ginza so I think this is a good hotel for sightseeing. Breakfast is buffet style and there are many dishes. I think the price is reasonable.

A hotel near the station and close to outlet.

It takes about 15mins from Karuizawa station to get to this hotel so the location of this hotel is very great. The guestroom is standard western style room but this hotel has cottage style room. If you stay at cottage style room, you can use it as a holiday house. There is a natural hot spring of Yagasaki onsen nearby and the guests can use for free. There is an open-air bath as well.
You can stay there around 10,000yen. I think that it’s good idea to save some money from your budget to go for nice restaurant in Karuizawa for delicious lunch.

Take a plan of shopping stay

Both are located next to Karuizawa outlet. If you take a shopping stay plan, you can get a shopping coupon of 2000yen per person. You cannot expect too much from the meals at the hotel’s restaurant but it isn’t a big deal if you go out for dinner. Staying at cottage is relatively reasonable but the building is old so you might have some minor problems. Depending on the season but you can have a relaxed time if you have less guests there or skiing around you.

You can have a nice time with your family

I don’t know the age of your children but I think it is better to stay at cottage if your children are small so that you can have a nice time with your family without caring your neighbours. It might be too standard though…
The best season to view the cherry blossom in Karuizawa is before GW so I recommend that you avoid this crowded GW period in order to enjoy quiet cherry blossom viewing and shopping at outlet. I think there are cherry blossoms in Kumoba no ike.

Casual satisfaction

You can eat inside of this hotel or you can go out around this hotel. This hotel is near outlet so you can have a relaxed time. Karuizawa Ginza and outlet are really nearby. There are golf site, spa and hot spring so you can have a relaxed stay within your budget.

Standard

If the priority of your trip is going to outlet, I highly recommend this hotel. I think you can stay there less than 10,000yen per person without meals. I think staying at the cottage isn’t bad idea for the family of 4. However, I assume that staying at the cottage in spring is a bit cold…

Near the south gate of JR Karuizawa station.

This hotel is located inside of the outlet and the free shuttle bus is operating. You’ll find the bus stop for this shuttle bus to go to this hotel (2 stops; east and west) and outlet once you go down with elevator at the south part of station.
The east building of this hotel is more for family with free hot spring. The west is close to the golf site and many group travelers stay there.

I highly recommend this hotel for shopping at outlet.

This big resort hotel is located in front of Karuizawa station and owns a huge field. Karuizawa Prince Outlet Shopping Plaza is located near the south gate of Karuizawa station and you’ll reach this hotel after passing though the gate. You can stay at the hotel but also at cottages. It takes about 10mins by car to go to Karuizawa Ginza.

You can stay at one room with 4 persons

This accommodation is for long-term stay so you can stay at one room with 4 persons. Outlet mall is inside of this hotel. I could come back to my room before going out for dinner. It’s a bit far to go to Karuizawa Ginza but you can easily access if you rent a bicycle at the hotel. You have to pay for the car park so I think it is better to leave your car at the hotel. The rooms are divided as east building and west building. It’s a big hotel. However, I didn’t feel crowded as there are many places for breakfast.

This hotel

It’s hard to recommend this hotel because the price is dramatically changing depending on the seasons. But the price isn’t too expensive and I think this hotel is good value for money. I think you should use the discount from internet but you need a skill to do it.

A chic and smart hotel.

This hotel is next to Karuizawa station. Karuizawa Prince Hotel Cottage, bus terminal, restaurants and souvenir shops are nearby. The size of hotel is standard. You can walk to outlet store. The rate isn’t too expensive and too cheap. Have a good stay!

There is connect room

This hotel is located in the convenient place for sightseeing. It takes about 2mins by foot from Karuizawa station to go to the east along the train rail to get to this hotel. There is a reasonable and modern connect room so that you can have a comfortable stay with your family of 4. The room has bright, chic and modern interiors. You can have delicious buffet breakfast at the chic restaurant. You can also rent a bicycle at this hotel. It’s a convenient hotel.

A perfect resort hotel for your needs.

I stayed at this hotel with my mother when I was single. This hotel has an interesting name but there is everything because this is a resort hotel. There are no plans with meals. I think this is their style to leave the space for customers to choose their favorite restaurants according to their moods and preferences. My mother and I went to Japanese restaurant. We could eat delicious dishes at the elegant restaurant in the chic resort hotel. I think the open-air bath with their own100% fresh hot spring water is one of their attractions. Have a nice relaxed time which you cannot really experience in big city.

A bit far.

How about this hotel? When I travel to Karuizawa, I also want to soak in a hot spring. Therefore, I always stay at 1130. It’s a small hotel but with hot spring, which is located in the centre between Kusatsu and Karuizawa. The room is relatively big and the meals are buffet style. You can view Asamasan from the window.

11mins by foot from Karuizawa station

It takes 11mins by foot from the north part of the station to get to this hotel. Outlet is within walking distance. You can also eat dinner buffet at buffet restaurant ‘Aya’ within your budget. There is a hot spring at the indoor stone bath in the big common bath. In addition, there are open-air bath and family bath so you can enjoy taking a bath together with your family. This hotel also has a pool so I think it is a good for your children.

You feel so relaxed in the nature

I stayed at this resort hotel with my wife last October. The environment around the hotel is good and I explored around by rental bicycle. I could have more than enough forest bathing. This hotel is clean and quiet. I remember that I was woken up by the tweet of the birds in the morning.

Is it because you can choose hot springs…??

This is a total hotel with jungle big common bath and many facilities where children can play. I recommend this budget hot spring hotel because everyone can have fun! If you are interested in Beppu city, Oita prefecture as same as Karuizawa, you might be able to have fun? Please take it into the consideration?!

An accommodation in Kusatsu onsen and it takes about 1 hour from Karuizawa

I stayed at this hotel with my family (married couple and 2 small children) last December. It takes about 1 hour by bus from Karuizawa to go to Kusatsu onsen. A hot spring is great and meals are very delicious. I could enjoy doing sightseeing in Kusatsu onsen in a leisurely pace. I think it takes about 2 and half hours by JR express train from Tokyo to get there.

A homey hotel!

The price of this hotel is cheaper than your budget. It costs around 8,000yen with breakfast on weekdays and about 10,000yen over the weekend. It takes about 5mins by foot to go to Kyu Karuizawa. I think it is good idea to rent a bicycle at the hotel to go to outlet. There is a car park and the pick-up service from Karuizawa station. Although there is no hot spring, this hotel has a small common bath. The room has a relatively spacious bathroom so it’s enough to take a bath at your room. Although the building looks old, the room is spacious and quiet so you can have a relaxed time. The staffs are very kind and take good care of guests when you have some troubles.

This hotel is located along the national road but it’s quiet

This hotel is located along the national road of No.18 and near the entrance gate of Karuizawa bypass (Nagano prefecture side) but you can have a relaxed time there because it’s surrounded by the forests and it’s quiet place. Outlet and Kyukaruginza are a bit gar from the hotel but I think this hotel is suitable accommodation according to your budget.

You can relax in rich nature

The free shuttle bus to outlet is operated from this hotel so it’s convenient to go shopping. This hotel is located in the rich nature so I recommend this hotel if you travel to Karuizawa. The room has a relaxed atmosphere and you can see great view from the room. Attached facilities are great so you’ll have no problems whatever you do.
