The hotel is only about 5 minute walk to the Castle. The hotel staff is very nice. They could see us from the distance and ran to help us with our luggage. There are many types of restaurants near the hotel. We are very happy to stay at Matsumoto Hotel Kagetsu!

Only about a 10-15 minute walk from the bus/train stations - shopping areas along the river on the way to the hotel, just 5 minutes from the castle. Tons of restaurants near by. We took a taxi (¥800) from the train station because it was raining. We were welcomed by hotel staff that carried our luggage in, held umbrellas over...

Decent sized room with drawers and wardrobe and room to place your suitcases. Unexceptional evening meal and breakfast. Clean. Pleasant staff. Short walk into town centre. Small lounge available adjacent to reception.

I struggled a little to choose a hotel in Matsumoto and finally settled on Hotel Kagetsu. So glad as I ended up being very happy with my choice. We stayed in a twin Western style room of good size and very comfortable with comfortable beds and a very good bathroom. The breakfast had more of a Japanese focus but there...

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...
