This hotel is literally 1 min from the Nagano train station and there is a sign from the station exit that reads "Metropolitan Nagano Hotel" - impossible to get lost finding it, even with jetlag!
We booked online from their official website, selecting the "Web reservation happy day" deal which is for room only; and found the prices very reasonable (much cheaper than their official rate, discounted rate for JR Pass holders, or even from other online sites).
I should also note, one definite plus for booking on their website is that they do not ask for a deposit, and there is no cancellation fees. We had to change our schedule in the last minute (literally, the night before our arrival) and found this flexibility invaluable.
The lobby is very grand and the reception was friendly, professional, and spoke good English. The room itself I would rate above average, on account of the excellent room rate. We only ended up staying one night, and booked a "double economy", so the room was quite small, but sufficient for our purposes.
The only point I can fault for the hotel is I found their bed a bit uncomfortable for two people as it is a foam mattress (ie. not spring), and a double not queen. This probably would not be a problem if you weren't sharing the bed, or went for the "deluxe" room which might have a bigger bed.
Overall a very pleasant experience, and I would go back if I was ever stopping over at Nagano again.
