Walkable from the bus station and right near the fantastic castle. The hotel sells half price entrance tickets. Museum worth a visit too. Wifi that worked. Excellent breakfast too. Good sized clean rooms.

This hotel is located on a quiet street within walking distance of the Castle. The front desk sells tickets to the castle for half price. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. I believe there is an onsen in the hotel but I did not go to it. The staff was very helpful and polite. The breakfast had a good selection of japanese or western foods. I would stay here again.

Nice hotel with well equipped compact rooms and great comp. breakfast. Speedy WiFi. Pleasant staff. Highly recommended. Pleasant walk to the Matsumoto Castle and not that far from train station. Clean facility with accommodating staff. Compatible with cultures other than Japanese. Pleasant short stay during group tour of Japan in October, 2013.

Room Tip: The castle nearby is a must see.

This was a very nice ryokan near the castle and in the center of town. Clean, large rooms and free wifi (!!!). Breakfast, Japanese or western, are offered, and is pretty good. Staff was very friendly and helpful...some spoke better English than others, but they all make every effort to help.

If you want to visit Matsumoto, this a good place to stay. It is a high rise hotel with an attached excellant restaurant.
My single room was rather small but then hotel rooms are generally small in Japan. The room was clean with generally good amenities.
The hotel is just 15mins walking distance from the railway station and very close to the river and the morning market. If you walk further along the river bank you come across a big shopping mall.
The surroundings of the hotel are quiet and clean.
The hotel is very close to the Castle, one of the main attractions of Matsumoto.
Check-in and check-out was friendly and easy.

This hotel is only a 5 minutes' walk from the famous Matsumoto Castle, which is rated one of the "Best of Japan" places for cherry blossom viewing. The staff are polite and helpful and informed us of the night light-up at the castle ground in celebration of the cherry blossom. When we were leaving for dinner, it started to rain and the lady staff at the door stopped us before running in to get umbrellas for us. She even went through the trouble of getting me a black-red umbrella to match my outfit! I was pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious and comfortable and we got the view of the mountains from our window. There is a public hot-spring bath right at the hotel as well. And the restaurants there are also award-winning eateries. Highly recommended. We enjoyed our stay there and regretted it was only for one night. Will certainly return to Matsumoto and to Hotel Kagetsu the next time I visit Japan.
