Well appointed and good sized room with good views. Breakfast (good choice available) on the top floor gives good views over the city. Well sited to stroll into town with numerous restaurants to choose from.

A large hotel very close to the city centre. The model train set in the foyer and samurai warrior were attractions to some people. Our room was well equipped, but some coffee sachets would have been welcome as well as the usual selection of tea. We were on an upper floor, so had a good view over the city. Views... More

It is a normal business hotel. It takes around 10mins walk to JR Matsumoto station and it is also possible walk to the Matsumoto castle. Anyway, Matsumoto is a small city. The breakfast place is at the top floor, if weather is good, you can get panoramic view of the city. The single room is small but clean.

My room was on the small side which is not a problem. It was clean and the staff were friendly. Spent some time looking for the wardrobe and eventually found a 12" recess with 3 hangers which was the 'wardrobe'. There were two towels in the bathroom, one of which was the size of an overgrown flannel. The breakfast buffet... More

We requested an upgrade and were put in the executive suite - beautiful room and access to free drinks and snacks in the lounge. Ate the evening dinner buffet which was good value and delicious. The room was really comfortable and v well appointed. Hotel was central in the town. Easy walk to castle and all main restaurants

Very Japanese, nice hotel, very friendly staff, no room service after 21:30, maid service a bit sloppy, small rooms, great internet. Staf speak not much english, but they are helpful and polite. Room maids don't take very serious about cleanliness, everything stays a bit dusty at times, and they don't vacuum every day, apparently - pro: they are fast!

Stayed here with family in April 2014 and we had an overal good experience, but I see that other people might have some issues : + Language : Even though they market themselves as an 'international hotel', you need to speak some Japanese to find out a lot of things, as their rules are often non straight forward. E.g. they... More

Very much the same impressions as the last two reviews. Lobby area is as expected for a quality hotel although English was spoken very poorly by the reception staff. We had an executive room on the 12th floor which had seen better days. The bathroom was standard for this sort of hotel and quite acceptable. There are three restaurants. We... More

Its an average hotel, and its good for one night stay! although they said its one of the best hotel in town, I thought it was just ok. What I found shocking upon arrival, the porters were all women! Maybe its a gender balance society, but carrying 20 kilos of luggage is not a woman's job! The reception spoke very... More
