We recently spent 4 nights at the Toyoko Inn Matsue. Due to the fact that we wanted 'non smoking' rooms we had two singles, which was slightly more expensive than a smoking twin but well worth it.
The hotel is approx 2 - 3 minutes walk from the railway station and very easy to find. A number of eateries are within the station and the nearby surrounding area.
As expected the check in was fast, efficient and without any problems whatsover, even though no English was spoken. As normal payment was made up front with various adjstments for 'membership' and 'eco plan' discounts.
For single rooms they were quite large for Japan with the usual module bathroom which appeared to be the same size as twin rooms.
Meticulously clean with the most comforable of beds (provided you like a firm mattress) and very good size too.
All of the usual Toyoko Inn finishes (desk, fridge, safe, TV, wall clock etc etc) and of course free WiFi in room. They also had computers and printer in the lobby for guests free of charge.
Breakfast was pretty much the same as all Toyoko Inns....Rice balls (which are really triangle) that are very tasty, miso soup, bread, jam, salad and various other foods plus of course coffee. Cold water and coffee was available in the lobby later in the day also.
Matsue itself is a lovely town, very easy to traverse, with many attractions. The castle tower is the best I have seen in Japan, and I have seen a few over the years. Many of the attractions are discounted for international tourist.
If you want a safe, clean hotel with access to the main attractions then I can recommend the Toyoko Inn Matsue.
