Reviewed December 3, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Matsumoto Tokyo Inn for two nights. Very easy to find from the train station as you actually can see it from there :P
We had coffee and tea available at the room and free wifi. Nice :-)

Nice room, clean and tidy, yet not very big, but that is quite typical in japan to my experience. We did not have breakfast or dinner at the hotel, yet breakfast buffet cost 1200yen which to my oppinion is reasonable.

Overall: good location and fine room.

We were on a group tour and had arranged to stay one night at this hotel.
The rooms were small. The beds were OK. The breakfast was average for the western food, had good yogurt. The carpets in the dinning room were dirty and full of stains. The management should take care of it.

We chose this hotel based on location and price, both were spot on. 2 minutes from the railway station and across from the bus terminal.
We arrived early afternoon, reception staff clearly couldn't be bothered with early (1pm) arrival
When we returned to check the staff were equally disinterested. Normally customer service in Japan is excellent with everyone being super helpful and friendly but not here.
Room was nice, but compact, only real issue is that the window was not double glazed so there was some street/train noise.

got a room very last minute after a change in plans; very accommodating staff. basic room, decent size for japan. excellent location near the station. the price paid is an amazing value for what's offered. only critical comment was the vent system blew in some smoke from a smoking room.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is very close to the JR station. And it is just next to the bus station. If you take a bus from Tokyo, this hotel is the right choice. Given the price tag, this hotel is one of the best value hotels we can find in Matsumoto.

The shopping mall is just right next to the hotel, easy access to the restaurants, food centers, and shopping area. The room size is quite small, as a usual standard size for a Japanese hotel. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is clean, and have decent facilities. The staffs are also helpful.

We stayed for 2 nights with our family in mid August 2013.

The room is a bit small but clean, and quite comfortable.
The A/C were not cold enough for summer and sometimes make strange noise.
The location is very convenient, less than 5 mins walk from train station and located in quiet area.
The receptionist was very helpful, quick check in-out time.
Good selection of breakfast, both Japanese and European.
Overall, it was good.

We stayed at Matsumoto Tokyu Inn in late July 2013.

The Inn is located about a 2 minute walk from Matsumoto Station. You can see it from the Station's exit - so it is a very easy walk with wheeled luggage etc. The Inn is also in the centre of Matsumoto, surrounded by restaurants and shops. There is a restaurant on the first floor for those nights you don't feel like stepping out. Next door, underneath the bus terminal, is a huge supermarket (biggest we found in Japan), so make the most of this.

We walked to Matsumoto Castle with no issues, takes around 15 minutes.

Staff are polite and friendly, although their English is very basic. Hotel also has a laundry, which came in handy.

The room was small (like nearly everywhere in Japan) and the air-conditioner certainly didn't reach the set temperature. There appeared to be some sort of 'hotel control' over individual room air-conditioning settings (which we came across quite a lot in Japan).

Can't fault house-cleaning. We asked our room to not be cleaned one particular day, to come back and see bags full of new towels and toiletries etc waiting out the front of our room.

Would recommend to friends!
