We stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a road trip around central/northern Honshu. The hotel was easy to locate and is very close to Matsumoto Castle and within walking distance of Matsumoto Station. We were given welcome drinks on check-in and the staff were incredibly kind and friendly, they also spoke very good English. We were...

All well water is used in water from this hotel.Water is soft for well water. And the bath was also very good.Even Matsumoto-Castle is a nearby good place. お部屋にもお風呂がついていたのですが、こちらのホテルは全館お水が井戸水!お部屋も大浴場も、洗面のお水も全部!とっても贅沢。お風呂のお湯が柔らかいんです。温泉ではなく井戸水わかしているかと思いますけれど、本当にお水がいいってこんなに違うんだなと思いました。朝食は和系バイキングでしたが、よかったです。女将自家製の野沢菜漬け、本当に美味しかった… ☆1つないのは、夜のレストランに演奏がある時期だったんですが、演奏チャージをお客様からとるって?と思ったからでした お食事の金額はそれはそれです その上で演奏がつくのでそれ以外に¥◯お支払いくださいって親切なのか押し売りなのかちょっと考えました 食事したかったけど演奏はいらないから行きませんでしたけれど。

The hotel is close to the castle, Nawate Street and many restaurants. All which are in walking distance. The staff were extremely helpful and we even got upgraded to a better room. The rooms are pretty big by Japan standards and comfortable. There is an onsen at the basement of the hotel but it is not fancy. I did find...

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The hotel is situated very close to the castle and is close to numerous other tourist attractions. Go to the Roof Top viewing point for a great night view of the Castle and wider Matsumoto. As mentioned by other reviewers the layout of the hotel is rather quirky but has a good...

For Japan, this hotel is very reasonably priced for a family. They have a nice, not fancy, onsen. Their toiletries are great. The staff is tremendously kind! We did not get the exact family room that we requested but it was very spacious and they were accommodating. It is super close to the castle. We would definitely stay here again...

Although this hotel is not really on a par with modern international standards, It's so much the better for it, it's quirkiness left me feeling that I'd love to come back here one day and hope it hasn't changed a bit! This hotel is down a narrow little road and quite central, it's about a 15 minute walk from the...

We had just finished a 3 day walk on the kiso road and were looking forward to a nice room and a hot relaxing soak in the hotel onsen. We were not dissapointed. The hotel had a nice feel - modern yet with traditional look and feel. And warm. Check in was efficient and the staff were helpful. The room...

My guide book (Lonely Planet) had said the hotel was showing some wear and tear but they're either snobs or Kagetsu has definitely refurbished - the hotel was quite luxurious! Staying the right side of horribly corporate, Kagetsu is traditionally decorated with modern touches. The staff are helpful, attentive and many speak good English. With rooms decorated calmly and cleanly,...

We stayed here for one night in late October. The hotel is lovely. Simple, quiet rooms and a wonderful onsen. The staff was friendly and helpful and the haori provided was beautiful. Good traditional breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
