Smile Hotel is a little out of the way compared to the other hotels out there. It took my family around 20mins to walk to Nagano train station. But bear in mind we were lugging large bags in the snow. It doesn't help that the entrance to the actual hotel is a flight of stairs too. But for that inconvenience,... More

This was a last minute booking on the way to Nozawa Onsen. It is less than 10 minutes walk from the station. It is an older hotel but clean and reasonable. The rooms were actually bigger than the other hotels we stayed on. Pillow was hard and felt like there is wheat inside it. There is a convenience store across... More

Within walking distance to train station. Reception staff were very helpful and tried to get us a taxi that would take a ski bag. Rooms smelt a bit like cigarette smoke and there was no wifi available. The rooms are pretty standard size for Japan and were clean and comfortable. We missed the breakfast to catch an early train.

Quite near to city centre and walking distance to zenkoji temple. Friendly staff. The room size is small but with a queen size bed and sufficient bag space for 2 luggage. Breakfast is only ok.

The rooms are quite good, the bathroom is not very big but convenient. We had the double room for single use. The price is quite good looking at the quality of the room. The breakfast is not very good with a limited choice of items. I would suggest to go to the small supermarket on the other side of the... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and enjoyed the quite big rooms and the friendly service. Breakfast consists of toast, jam and coffee but it is enough for the affordable rate. Walking to the station is around ten minutes. Department stores and sights are in walking distance.
