Kyukaruizawa Kikyo, Curio Collection by Hilton Hotel Review - Twin Courtyard Suite

On our first night in Japan, we stayed at Kyukaruizawa Kikyo, Curio Collection by Hilton in Karuizawa. Located 15 minutes of walk away from Old Karuizawa street, making the hotel accessible to the attraction yet enjoys peace and tranquillity in the area.

When we arrived, the exterior of the hotel looks dated to me. Thus, I wasn’t expecting much. However, once I enter the lobby, I fell in love with the design immediately. It was modern and cosy! The kind of place that allows you to chill with a book and do nothing else.
Once we were in, the hotel staff greeted us and help with the check-in. Japanese service truly lived up to its name! It was fuss-free and the hotel staff gave us a tour around the hotel. Also, we were stoked to find out that we were being upgraded from premium room to twin courtyard suite because of HH gold status! On a side note, they even have pet-friendly room!

The 56 sqm room is huge and is group into 3 section - living room, bed and bathroom. The living room comes with a long sofa. There is a Nespresso coffee machine as well as a complimentary mini-bar! Small little gesture goes a long way!

Separated by a partitioned, the bedroom is huge! With 2 super single placed beside in the room, it can definitely fit up to 4 people without adding the rollaway bed! The mattress is firm and liner is very comfortable too. After a long day of the drive, we slept like a baby!

The toilet is divided into a wet and dry area. It is very spacious but sadly, we didn’t use the bathtub in the room because we visited the Onsen during our time there. Toiletries are well stocked and they provide all the necessities you need for a good stay. They even provide buddhi oil for you to relax after your Onsen!

Breakfast is amazing! To be honest, I’m not a fan of hotel breakfast as compare to H who enjoys making his own DIY big breakfast. I always go for the usual breakfast item such as Cereal, Cheese and bread. However, the breakfast at Kyukaruizawa Kikyo, Curio Collection by Hilton is so good, I managed to go for a few rounds. It’s quality over quantity! You can even request for fruits to be cut and send to your table.

Although the Onsen facility is great, the experience isn’t. There is no outdoor onsen in the facility. Plus, this place is very popular among tourist, making it annoying when they don’t follow Japanese etiquettes. Talking loudly as if they own this place truly spoils the experience there.

In Conclusion
Even though the room is dated, we love the overall experience. From quality food to excellent service, our stay at Kyukaruizawa Kikyo, Curio Collection by Hilton is a very memorable one.
