We are unable to find any other hotel in Nagano during my last visit, and this is the only one that we can find. It's about 1 hour drive to Nagano, and the hotel surrounding is very quiet. There are only a few small restaurants and only one convenient store but they close early. If you are planning for a getaway onsen vacation, this may be a good choice.
It's a traditional hotel, and we stayed in a Japanese style room (tatamis & futons). The onsen is nice and never crowded, there are two onsen area which separate Man & Woman. The best thing is that the hotel will switch the side every day so that everyone can enjoy the different view of the onsen...a Plus to the hotel in this part.
People are nice, but they speak very little English, need some body language to help in communication all the time.
