Matsumoto Hotel Kagetsu
Ranked #7 of 198 Hotels / Ryokan in Matsumoto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2015

We stayed at this property for 4 nights in the older annex section of the hotel. The room was very small with extra firm beds.The unit was more like a budget accommodation. However, these features were offset by the excellent friendly English speaking staff, the location to restaurants in the older section of the city and bus/train station, the great extensive Japanese breakfast included in our stay, and self coin laundry at the hotel. There was also a public bath available that we didn't use. It was a great value overall. If you like outdoor activities, we stayed at Matsumoto so we could take day trips to Kamikochi and the Nakasendo Route (Magome to Tsumago) hiking. The tourist information office was a two minute walk from our hotel.

Room Tip: Request a room in the newer part of hotel.

This is a good place to stay and is very convenient in the samarui former residential area. We stayed in a western room with very comfortable beds. Good onsen bath available but also ensuite is good.
Some tips for foreigners. We could not adjust the air conditioning and it was too hot. But opening the window worked in the season we were there. Point both handles inwards and swing the window open.
The western breakfast arrangements have you served at the table. When they offer you a choice of eggs or not it is probably better to say yes or you may not get much. But it is tasty!

This hotel is close to the castle, has a great public area, great breakfast, and helpful staff. The single thing missing that truly changed our perception of the hotel was an extreme lack of ventilation/air conditioning. While I realize that this sounds like an overly picky complaint, the summer heat in Matsumoto truly kept us awake due to the heat in the room. With all of this nice hotel's modernity, this one missing element made our stay here not a very pleasant one.

I stayed in a Western style room and the room was nice and comfortable for a short one night stay! It is close to Matsumoto Castle and the staff were very friendly. They helped us to organise our luggage forwarding and the breakfast was good too. Would definitely visit again!

Stayed here 2 nights in a Japanese style room. The room, experience, location, city couldn't have been better. If you want to experience a Japanese way of visiting, I highly recommend this location and the authentic room.

Morning style Japanese breakfast was great as well. And the separated baths they have for their guests was great and a perfect way to end and start the day. Service was stellar, and only 2 blocks away from the castle. Perfect to look at night (magical).

About 12 minute walk from station. Take a cab if you have more than a roller board and bag. It was only Y960.

Don't miss this!!!
