We spent three nights here while exploring the area. Wonderful friendly service. Our room had a kitchen outside the front door which was only shared with one other room. Saved some money and cooked our evening meal twice. Onsen was nice and hot. There is limited parking here. We had to shuffle a few cars around and double park as... More

We passed through Matsumoto on the way to the Hakuba ski slopes and had the pleasure of staying at Seifuso for one night. The owners were extremely warm and hospitable and made great recommendations. The room was warm and comfortable. Pity it was so cold or we would have loved to cycle to the city along the river. Recommend

Friendly, helpful advise on local tourist spots, warm comfortable futon, clean rooms with all you need. Japanese style breakfast was amazing for the price. Would definitely recommend this ryokan as a great place to stay.

There are a lot of places to stay in Matsumoto, but we spent three great nights at this family-run ryokan (traditional Japanese inn). After a free transfer from the train station, we were shown to our tatami room, which was extremely comfortable. We tried a Japanese breakfast, rode around the city on bikes that the ryokan provides (lots of fun)... More

I had an enjoyable stay at the ryokan. The staff speaks English well and are able to provide me directions and advice for my sightseeing in Matsumoto. For those who enjoys a good walk, this place is about 30minutes walk to Matsumoto castle. Do come by to this ryokan for a cosy stay and delicious breakfast!

I stayed there two nights with my boyfriend and honestly I have nothing more to say than "excellent place"! The owners are the nicest, the place is very comfortable, clean and quiet (including a nice warm bath that you can reserve for a private 30 minutes session), the room was the perfect compromise between authenticity and comfort... The minute the... More

The best about this place are the lovely owners, english speaking and very helpful. They pick you up at the railway station, bring you back there, offer bikes for free, provide all needful informations (also on food!). The minus is, you have to ride 10 min by bike to the center (along the river) - i did enjoy!

If you're looking for comfort, value for money and friendly hosts in Matsumoto then this is your place! We stayed 4 nights and were accommodated in one of the rooms upstairs in the annex. We had a great stay, the room was clean and comfortable, we were able to get some washing done and the inn has lots of bikes... More

We stayed at Seifu-so Inn for two nights with our two (young and active) children aged 3 and 6 this past weekend. We had a very lovely time in Matsumoto and staying at Seifu-So was fantastic as we could expect it from the review we had read. The ryokan is run by a super friendly family, who can speak English...
