Our stay in Matsumoto was definitely a highlight of our trip to Japan, a great place with friendly people as a base to explore the surrounding alps region. Overall, our stay at Rykoan Seifuso was a positive and extremely enjoyable experience. Ryokan Seifuso is very affordable and is perhaps reflected in the state of the ammenities. It is simple and...

We stayed here for one night and very much enjoyed it. The ryokan is just off the centre of Matsumoto, but this is not a problem at all as they offer a free pickup service to and from the station. Once you're there you're free to use on of the bikes, which is probably the nicest way to explore a... More

We had an absolute blast at this Ryokan- I think it's definitely one of the best places my partner and I have been to :D we made the most of this place, borrowed a couple of free bikes from Seifuso and rode for pretty much all of our 3 days/2 nights here. We were also able to book a private... More

I awared about this hotel from trip advisor and noticed this hotel with very positive review on the ranking. So, without any doubt, I booked this hotel during my trip to Matsumoto. When arrived this hotel, firstly, the location is far away from major attractioin spot. Secondly, I noticed this quite old facilities with not very well maintainance. Last but... More

This was a fantastic ryokan to stay in, and for the price it was also really good value for money. It was easy to arrange for the ryokan to do a pick up from Matsumoto train station, with clear directions laid out on the ryokan's website, with pictures to indicate landmarks. Matsumoto is generally a quiet town, and the ryokan... More

It's basic, but clean and such a lovely family, mother, father & daughter that run the place. Daughter has very good English. We had a very good breakfast each morning, my wife and I Japanese and my daughter English. They even gave my 9 year old daughter origami lessons. Also nice to have free pick up and drop off from...

Despite being my forth time in Japan this was my first stay in a ryokan. Having read other reviews my expectations were high and thankfully I was not at all disappointed. From the helpful (and charming) instructions on their website for arranging the station pick up service to the wonderful hand drawn maps of the city, the whole experience was... More

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The owner and her husband were extremely nice people. The room was great for 3 people, it had two separate rooms for sleeping (each large enough to fit the 3 of us) and a private toilet and sink. There were 2 shared kitchens and 2 (maybe 3?) shared showers in the annex where we... More

What a great little traditional japanese guesthouse. Very clean rooms, good location. Free bikes to use. Good freshly made breakfast. Even a mini 'onsen' as the bathroom. Our hosts were fantastic, with convenient shuttle from the station even though we arrived quite late. Special mention to Atsuko who helped us find appropriate medical advice for a medical issue we had... More

Nice little Ryokan/guesthouse in a residential area outside Matsumoto. Gracious pick-up at station & return. Breakfast was simple & fine. Good budget option, friendly helpful people, clean, quiet. Excellent clear directions provided. Bicycles available. Coffee machine freely accessible. Computer to use. I would stay here again.
