9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very relaxing, nice Onsen that is easy to book privately, delicious Japanese food, spacious room. Hotel personnel will pick you up from the bus station (station name is Sawando, which google calls something else incorrectly). You will get a private dining room, and four out of eight total rooms come with a hot bath inside. Keep in mind that even though you have the hot bath, you won't have a shower in the room. You cannot use the hot bath to clean yourself. The only showers are the public ones, and one private that can be reserved. I initially found that to be inconvenient, but it really was not. Relaxation is about letting go of control! The bed is a Japanese futon, on the floor, but comfortable and warm even in the winter. They will put some kind of a hot-water filled feet warmer under the sheets, too.
Cons: Some amount of sake should have been included in the price of the dinner!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic traditional Japanese hospitality and beautiful food in an unusual location. Not for a second did they make us feel different or unwelcome due to our western/foreign background. We were here for 2 nights and was a highlight of our visit to Japan. A special thanks to Yuta Saitou for his patient help and support before and during our stay.
Cons: Very little not to like in this beautiful

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The ryokan is 5mins walk from Sawando bus stop, not big but super comfortable. I do like the hot spring and their lovely staffs. It’s a pity that I arrived one week before Kamikochi opened to public this spring. BTW, the starry sky view from the garden was really amazing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Silence, calm atmosphere, lovely people, fantastic location , georgeus food and private onsen in room. Thank you for making my stay so special. Food was spectacular everything was in autumn theme. I have been travelling through Japan for three weeks and I missed milk so much, and here you are providing me with a bottle of delicious and fresh milk at 7:00 am...thank you very very much.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: They picked us up from the bus stop and brought our bags inside for us. They spoke some good English and explained to us how everything worked. They're were also instructional books for how to use the different baths and what time they're available. We decided not to get dinner but they still provided us with good and drink. Breakfast was amazing.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Everything was wonderful. The decor is absolutely charming, and the place is quite new and very clean. Our room was huge with lots of amenities, and we slept very well on the futon. Both the outdoor and indoor baths were absolutely lovely after a day in Kamikochi, and we really enjoyed the yukatas and samue nightwear provided. The kaiseki meal and breakfast served in a private room was fantastic, and the service made us feel very special. We had an extremely comfortable, relaxing and luxurious stay.
Cons: The location is very convenient for Kamikochi, but the place is quite close to the road and next to a parking lot. It didn't really bother us, though! The ryokan is also slightly expensive but worth every yen.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: This beautiful traditional ryokan had superb kaiseki dinners and breakfasts each day. Rooms were immaculate with extra little touches like a complimentary supper treat left for us each evening. Staff were courteous and spoke enough English to assist us. Onsen was beautiful. Interiors of the rooms and public areas beautifully designed in traditional timbers. We were treated with utmost courtesy and loved our 4-night stay here. Highly recommend this ryokan to anyone who perhaps has never experienced this type of Japanese hospitality. And the food was the next level of master chef!
Cons: So hard to find anything to fault here. Location is a little bit out of central Matsumoto, but that makes this place such a retreat... a nearby local bus took us directly to Matsumoto Castle and Station, and a 10 minute taxi ride brought us back. We loved everything about this ryokan!

Pros: Just a positive experience. The staff is a family who owns the location, and they are very welcoming and kind. They were very hospitable, and me and my traveling companion want to return soon and stay in this area again, because of how kind the staff was, how interesting and comfortable the location and surrounding wilderness were, and how we were able to get to many interesting places without too much of a difficult drive. Ice cream was also terrific. There is also an area where guests can talk and play music. It was very nice. Furthermore, breakfast was delicious, I would recommend you get it in addition to your stay.

Pros: The owner is very kind, helpful, and generous especially the "mother". She prepared a very delicious vegetarian dinner for me. She offered to give me umbrella upon check out since I did not have one and the weather forecast was raining for whole day. I also like the spacious shared shower room with big spring water hot tub. It has a view of the forest if you open up the large window. The room is also nice and cozy with greenery view. I like the onsen discount voucher very much too. The little birds at the garden were so cheerful and joyful. The husband and son are also nice people. The "son" is helpful in providing sightseeing information and the "father" is clear in his explanation of the house rules.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good host and the meals are great!
Cons: It is a little far off from the train station. You will need to take a cab, for about 3000 yen.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: - the service was impeccable. Once you check-in, they will help you with your bags and luggages which is EXTREMELY rare. - checkin process was seamless and straightforward. We got seated and they served us tea and a small pastry while waiting. - once this is done, book your private onsen and choose your dinner and breakfast if you selected that option. - next, your room is ready and your bags are already in the room waiting for you to unpack. - spacious room size with massage chair. Yes, they might not speak perfect English as shared by other reviewers but this is Japan, so deal with it. There is a thing called Google Translate. - Dinner is perfect. Excellent Jap meal with delicious beef that you can enjoy using their mini bbq. - freshly hand made soba by their chef. - extremely friendly staff that will make you feel like home. - nice private onsen. better to enjoy it during night as the view is beautiful. Not sure whats the fuss about the dirt and all as shared by other guests. If you want a clean onsen, probably pick a swimming pool. Natural Onsen will have some sediments anyways. So.. If you are OCD, then find a swimming pool. - very nice place to relax and enjoy. The breakfast was decent with a good mix of Jap and Western food. However, the western breakfast sausage was abit mini.. Lol. Could have been bigger but overall, i like it. Will definitely visit again as the experience was rather refreshing and rejuvenating too. 5/5 stars.
Cons: Nothing. It was perfect. Don't get the fuss about the location being out of the way since they do have a shuttle van. Furthermore, Lawson convenience store is just diagonal from the hotel. If you are looking for convenience to the castle or tourist attractions, then skip this. If you want an excellent memorable ryokan experience and enjoy the peace and not tour buses, this is the hotel to stay. If you are quite bothered by smoke smell (non-smoker), then yes, this might be an issue as the smoking room is at every level and the smell might seep into the hallway since the smoking room door is not close tightly, there is a small gap (that is probably the only improvement that Hotel Tamanoyu can improve on).

Pros: Staff is very helpful and gave us a warm hospitality by providing detailed bus schedule and ensuring we got on the right bus. Excellent.
7.9 Good
Pros: Food was very traditional and very tasty
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great! We had made reservations for the 2.45pm shuttle bus and the ride up was comfortable and gave us great views of the mountains. Check in was efficient despite the high number of guests. They had allocated lounge seats at the lobby for our group of 5, with welcome drinks and snacks for us to nibble on while they checked us in. The bathing and onsen facilities were very clean and it was wonderful to have a soak in the outdoor onsen with the crisp autumn air. Dinner was very tasty, and breakfast was just as delicious. They also offer shuttle buses to Kamikochi and also back to Matsumoto - very convenient! For those who are concerned about wifi, it's mainly available at the lobby level and not so much in the rooms, but this is a minor issue when you're immersed in the breathtaking natural landscape of the Northern Japan Alps.
Cons: Slightly expensive but the entire experience is worth every yen.
7.0 Good
Pros: Great location to explore nearby region. The staff are fantastic, and will do anything to help. English a little limited so if this frustrates you not the place for you. The food was some of the best we had during our 2 week trip - and for two people who aren't too keen on fish it was perfect!
Cons: Very regimented time restraints for meals/bus leaving times etc. I can see why they do it but definitely not for everyone. Check out at 10am but shuttle only leaves at 12midday with little to do around there, not ideal. Overall the place is VERY tired and dirty - with a revamp though it could be perfect place to stay. Also, the futon mattress...SO uncomfortable!! Two worst nights sleep (no sleep) the whole trip, but easily rectified. Also very cold rooms, onset perfect to warm you up, but with a revamp and improved heating systems again, could be perfect due to staff, surroundings and food!!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: While a little difficult to reach (at the top of a mountain), it is less than three miles from the Japanese alps-kamacoshi national park. Unbelievable views even from the bedroom. Lots of good food, but traditional Japanese. Great baths, and wonderful staff.
Cons: The pillows were also traditional, and I don’t really love traditional Japanese breakfasts. But that is my fault, not theirs!

Clean and newly decorated. Basic, but has everything you need. Excellent location. Within a 5 min walk to train station. Very close to supermarket. Best point: Has 24/7 diner right at the ground level. Food is not gourmet but not bad (like Denny's). Plus, it's very reasonably priced. (I paid $70 US a night in April.) This hotel is the best hidden gem in Matsumoto. I actually prefer it way more than Buena Vista, which is supposed to be the most "luxurious" business hotel in town.
Cons: No gym, but neither does Buena Vista.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly staff. Warm, comfortable rooms (if you would have more language I presume it might feel a bit small though). Welcome warm towel & bottle of water. Short walk to the city centre, as well as other interesting places (Matsumoto castle, Nakamachi street, several shrines etc). Restaurants, cafes and the rest (7eleven just around the corner) are also super close by!
