Clean, Modern Hotel”

I enjoyed four nights here in July 2020. The hotel rooms were very modern and clean, as well as slightly larger than the average Japanese hotel room. The staff were exceptionally professional and helpful. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet; absolutely delicious with a wide variety of western and Japanese foods. There’s a free shuttle bus to the station, but it’s an easy five minute walk there. It’s about a 15 minute walk to the castle.

Needed break with wonderful stay”

Had great r and r here while exploring the alps—stayed in the superior single and is highly recommended for solo travelers. May be hard to pack Kamikochi hiking gear however. Loved the fall ikebana display at the hotel lobby and staff went incredibly up and beyond when I lost a belonging. Breakfast was good with nice spread of continental, Japanese and a few specialities of Nagano prefecture such as Shinano Sweet apples, wasabi dressing for salad, rice and miso soup from local sources. Highly recommend tea and cake set in lounge, especially the seasonal parfait. The fall fruits one was simply divine. Would love to stay again!

I stay there 2 night because Hagibis storm hit Japan. I can't go else where as planed because the high way are closed. Staff were very helpful to check the road and suggest me for other travelling place in Matsumoto. Room is very clean, very good view for eating breakfast on 14th floor. Only one bad point is the parking building is outside the hotel in walkable distance and we have to pay 1100 yen for parking fee. This is already discounted for hotel guest, if you not inform the hotel staff, you might have to pay about 1000 yen / hour for parking fee at that building.

Representative hotel in Matsumoto station area”

If you are looking for some place nicer that just a business hotel in Matsumoto station area, this hotel could be a good option for you. I like to find out the representative hotel in any area which is not for budget traveler but providing nice service and facilities and nice breakfast at fancy restaurant. The hotel was 5 minutes walk from the station which is comparably far than other business hotels near the station, but still nice location and big and fancy facilities. They are providing breakfast at the restaurant on 1st floor in February 2019, but they main restaurant on 14th floor is going to be done its renovation and reopen from March. So it should be much nicer to have good breakfast includes some local foods with nicer view of Matsumoto.

There was a large craft fair taking place in Matsumoto, so the rooms we booked were literally the last left in the whole city. So, we didn't intentionally *choose* this hotel. But we were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the hotel was clean, and the rooms were comfortable. The bed was great and offered the best nights rest I had on my whole two-week vacation in Japan.

I'd Stay There Again But Be Aware...”

My room was lovely-- they upgraded me to the executive floor which had a nice view of the mountains and it was very comfortable. My room was nonsmoking which was great but not all the rooms on that floor are non-smoking so at times the hallway would be a bit rank. But the staff was helpful (even spoke some English!), the hotel lobby was lovely, and it was a quick walk from the bus terminal / train station (easily less than 10 minutes--but I'm a fast walker). OH! And although the hotel itself does not have an onsen (hot spring), they do give the opportunity to go to an onsen. Just go up to the counter and tell them which of the two times you'd like to go (it's in the evening) and they'll give you a ticket to take the shuttle! So I'd totally use it again since I'm not terribly sensitive to tobacco smoke but if you are, you may want to be aware.
