This is an older hotel, with lots of character. Think wooden floors, beams and creaking staircases. We stayed in a delightful room, which just fit 2 twin singles and a small desk in it. Very little room for anything else, however we had our own private balcony with it's own garden (almost as big as the room). Unfortunately it was...

Great service in this hotel very close to Matsumoto Castle. Clean, well equipped rooms. Fine food though why they thought we wanted European footwork breakfast...? Still the 1 inch thick door stop bread slices were amusing. Very good, very hot spa pools. Beers a bit pricey.

A small town, Matsumoto offers very much and one of the pluses is the location of Hotel Kagetsu.. The hotel is within a short walk to the castle. Many folk craft furniture is found in the hotel, the rooms are very nice, not too small. The Japaneses style breakfast is enormous and very tasty. As always from our experience in...

We arrived late and tired from a week in the snow and could not have found a better place. The staff were warm and welcoming. Our rooms and bathrooms were lovely and clean with all the little luxuries. The onsen was amazing with spa like jets and with great toiletries available. My only regret was in not booking to stay...

Got a great deal and decided to stay the night here. The decor of the entrance hall was beautiful. Service impeccable. They serve you coffee and biscuits while they check you in. The room was large - with wider than normal single beds (twin room). My daughter loved the PJs they provided. My only gripe would be I got too...

We stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a road trip around central/northern Honshu. The hotel was easy to locate and is very close to Matsumoto Castle and within walking distance of Matsumoto Station. We were given welcome drinks on check-in and the staff were incredibly kind and friendly, they also spoke very good English. We were...

All well water is used in water from this hotel.Water is soft for well water. And the bath was also very good.Even Matsumoto-Castle is a nearby good place. お部屋にもお風呂がついていたのですが、こちらのホテルは全館お水が井戸水!お部屋も大浴場も、洗面のお水も全部!とっても贅沢。お風呂のお湯が柔らかいんです。温泉ではなく井戸水わかしているかと思いますけれど、本当にお水がいいってこんなに違うんだなと思いました。朝食は和系バイキングでしたが、よかったです。女将自家製の野沢菜漬け、本当に美味しかった… ☆1つないのは、夜のレストランに演奏がある時期だったんですが、演奏チャージをお客様からとるって?と思ったからでした お食事の金額はそれはそれです その上で演奏がつくのでそれ以外に¥◯お支払いくださいって親切なのか押し売りなのかちょっと考えました 食事したかったけど演奏はいらないから行きませんでしたけれど。

The hotel is close to the castle, Nawate Street and many restaurants. All which are in walking distance. The staff were extremely helpful and we even got upgraded to a better room. The rooms are pretty big by Japan standards and comfortable. There is an onsen at the basement of the hotel but it is not fancy. I did find...

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The hotel is situated very close to the castle and is close to numerous other tourist attractions. Go to the Roof Top viewing point for a great night view of the Castle and wider Matsumoto. As mentioned by other reviewers the layout of the hotel is rather quirky but has a good...
