“High quality for medium budget”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

I was very happy to select this hotel though it was not near the station.
The view was perfect from my room .Unlike other Japanese hotels, single room had a double size (full size) bed.I had breakfast on the top floor restaurant which was quite scenic.
Early check-in and late checkout provides plenty of time to rest after a long trip from Osaka.
Staff are very polite and kind.
I will try to stay again whenever I visit Nagano.

I found this large city centre western-style hotel in Nagano city centre to be good value. I was visiting as a tourist in August which is outside of the winter-sports season and it cost me just under £100 in total for two nights.

Located within a mile or so of the station, and the main central tourist site of Zenki-jo. I was personally using Nagano as a base to explore the surrounding area, and being near to the station was of great help.

It is a relatively new hotel, and my en-suite twin room was of a good size and had modern fittings.

Reception staff all spoke English, which was useful for someone like me who needs to brush up on their Japanese!

There are good views from the top floor restaurants, but I found them to be on the expensive side compared to other restaurants in the city. They (and the hotel generally) was quite quiet, so they were also lacking in atmosphere somewhat.

Overall, this hotel provided everything I'd expect of a similar hotel in a European city but probably at better value.

  • Liked — Good value and good location
  • Disliked — Lack of atmosphere
