We arrived in Nagano about 3pm, without a hotel reservation but had read positive reviews about this hotel on tripadvisor, so we decided to have a look. The tourist information on Nagano railway station provided a map and it was approximately a 10min walk from the west exit. The hotel is located on the same street as the Zenkoji Temple. Fortunately, we had forwarded our luggage via takkyubin to our next destination so we didn't have any luggage to carry.
We were offered a standard twin room for approximately 11000¥ which was very clean, comfortable and had a LAN cable for computers, at no additional cost. There were numerous restaurant options and shops nearby. The hotel was more than adequate for an overnight stay but if carrying luggage and skis, I would probably choose a hotel closer to the station.
