Kagetsu is a relatively large and rather old fashioned establishment, with a bar, restaurant and agreeable sento (communal hot bath). The well insulated bedrooms, which have western beds, ensuite bathrooms and free wifi, are comfortable but a little tired. There is a choice of western and Japanese breakfasts: the latter is outstanding. The location, near Matsumoto castle and several good... More

Walking distance away from the famous Matsumoto Castle and the old quarter of city where many F&B outlets are! Convenient for tourist for night out eating and drinking.The room is relatively small but clean and comfortable. Hotel's English speaking receptionists also help. Decent Japanese breakfast...like most business or budget hotels in minor cities in Japan, it is decent but nothing... More

As my title says, this is a good mid-price hotel in a great location. Less than five minutes from the iconic Matsumoto Castle and nestled in between quaint shopping streets Nakamachi & Nawate. Hotel Kagetsu is a clean and comfortable business hotel.

We stayed at this property for 4 nights in the older annex section of the hotel. The room was very small with extra firm beds.The unit was more like a budget accommodation. However, these features were offset by the excellent friendly English speaking staff, the location to restaurants in the older section of the city and bus/train station, the great... More

This is a good place to stay and is very convenient in the samarui former residential area. We stayed in a western room with very comfortable beds. Good onsen bath available but also ensuite is good. Some tips for foreigners. We could not adjust the air conditioning and it was too hot. But opening the window worked in the season... More

This hotel is close to the castle, has a great public area, great breakfast, and helpful staff. The single thing missing that truly changed our perception of the hotel was an extreme lack of ventilation/air conditioning. While I realize that this sounds like an overly picky complaint, the summer heat in Matsumoto truly kept us awake due to the heat... More

I stayed in a Western style room and the room was nice and comfortable for a short one night stay! It is close to Matsumoto Castle and the staff were very friendly. They helped us to organise our luggage forwarding and the breakfast was good too. Would definitely visit again!

Stayed here 2 nights in a Japanese style room. The room, experience, location, city couldn't have been better. If you want to experience a Japanese way of visiting, I highly recommend this location and the authentic room. Morning style Japanese breakfast was great as well. And the separated baths they have for their guests was great and a perfect way... More

The hotel has some Japanese rooms as well as western rooms. Our room had 3 seperate spaces all with sliding doors and tatami mats. Worked really well for us as our daughter had her own space & could go to sleep before us. Very spacious and comfortable. The futon rolls are put out at night by the maids. Excellent location...
