Elegant hotel in central Matsumoto. Nice lobby, very friendly staff, though with only limited knowledge of English (basics worked). Room on the 5th floor, nice view, though nothing spectacular. Splendid furniture. Bed wonderful. Bathroom richly equipped with everything you might want. Room has fridge and a flat tv. Wifi in the room worked, but a bit slow at first. Breakfast... More

This hotel is delightful, my room was a good size , nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. The foyer and seating area by reception were very pleasant and staff were polite and helpful. The hotel is well placed for the castle and exploring the rest of the town.

The Matsumoto Hotel Kagetsu was the best hotel we stayed in on our Inside Japan eight city trip. All hotels were supposed to be 2 or 3 star but this was 3+! Very professional and friendly staff, good sized room with very comfy beds. The location is excellent for the castle. Breakfast was fabulous too, Japanese and Western. Very impressed.... More

This hotel in Matsumoto is an excellent choice for many reasons. It is centrally located, first class English speaking staff, great room with very comfy beds. The onsen is fantastic. We chose a top floor room with view to the castle. Breakfast can either be Japanese or English. We chose the eggs and toast. The Japanese breakfast is excellent but... More

Kagetsu is a relatively large and rather old fashioned establishment, with a bar, restaurant and agreeable sento (communal hot bath). The well insulated bedrooms, which have western beds, ensuite bathrooms and free wifi, are comfortable but a little tired. There is a choice of western and Japanese breakfasts: the latter is outstanding. The location, near Matsumoto castle and several good... More

Walking distance away from the famous Matsumoto Castle and the old quarter of city where many F&B outlets are! Convenient for tourist for night out eating and drinking.The room is relatively small but clean and comfortable. Hotel's English speaking receptionists also help.

As my title says, this is a good mid-price hotel in a great location. Less than five minutes from the iconic Matsumoto Castle and nestled in between quaint shopping streets Nakamachi & Nawate. Hotel Kagetsu is a clean and comfortable business hotel.
