Great for our young family!
We were looking for a relaxing family get-away to escape the heat of Tokyo in August, and that's exactly what we got. Hotel Otowa no Mori is beautiful, is very conveniently located (while also being quiet and a bit removed from the crowds), and the staff was so helpful in arranging whatever we needed (taxis, dinner reservations, etc.).

European-feel Hotel in Kyu Karuizawa
Hotel is a short distance (about 10-15min walk) from the station, and in a pretty quiet part of Karuizawa mid-point between the station and the Kyu Karuizawa shopping. The hotel has two stories and no lift, but the staff were very helpful in getting our luggage to the second floor, and with most queries in general. Room is of a decent size for the area, and the hotel in general is very charming and furnished with a classic European feel. Everything was clean and comfortable, would recommend!
