The location is near many shopping malls. the rooms are very small(smallest room i have been to). This is a very typical restaurant for traditional weddings. the food is very japanese based as far for dinner and breakfast.

Matsumoto for us was the base for the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route but we were hoping to arrive early enough so as to see some of the sights of the town, however this didn't work out. We arrived very late in the evening (by train from Tokyo), and had to take a taxi to the hotel because the hotel shuttle was... More

Although just a few blocks from the train station the hotel offers a free shuttle. In addition to its proximity to the train station, it's also well-located for easy walks to Matsumoto Castle and other sites in/around the city. The Buena Vista is a large hotel, very clean, very quiet, and a terrific value - around US$100 including breakfast.

Every time I'm at this hotel, I wish I wasn't. Unfortunately, due to the paucity of hotel options in this small city, I would often end up being here. It's supposed to be the best hotel in town for international travelers, but it really is far from being world class. The rooms are too small and cramped, with the phone... More

Immaculate bedroom and bathroom, convenient location, reasonably priced modern hotel. Ate our buffet breakfast whilst enjoying views of Shinsu mountains. Good wifi connection and speed. In easy reach of railway station.

We were given a room in the executive suite, lovely . Very clean, recently refurbished. My only comment would be that that the air con did not seem to work very well. Set at 18c and the room , even with the window open was a little too warm. Breakfast was fine. Missing the expresso machine, but the coffee at... More

This is the sister hotel of shoho ryokan. Service was good, and rooms were clean. Hotel was about S 10 mins walk away from JR matsumoto station. I stayed here as part of the local land tour package but would consider I on my own too

We stayed here in Matsumoto during September early October 2014. The Hotel is modern and has good facilities. We paid extra for the Executive floor however the rooms are quite small yest reasonably nicely appointed.

A little expensive around here. But I could relax in luxury space. This hotel has great restaurants. And breakfast buffet in top floor of the hotel. I enjoyed Shinshu(Nagano)'s local food with great view.

Found this hotel the day of travel for a great price. Excellent location with plenty of parking. Rooms were good size, clean and comfortable. The roof top bar offered excellently crafted cocktails with a skilled bartender that spoke very good English. Restaurants were a bit pricey so we didn't dine here.
