Please tell me a recommended hotel in Matsumoto, Japan, for solo traveller

Isn’t there any hotel where a single female traveller doesn’t feel lonely to kill time during the day in Matsumoto in the Nagano prefecture at a Christmas time. My boyfriend will go on a business trip at a Christmas time. The place is Matsumoto in the Nagano prefecture. I decided to go and stay at a different hotel so we can be together even for a short time. But during the day while he is working, I’ll be alone. So, I’m glad if there is a hotel and a place even if I stay on my own without feeling lonely at a Christmas time.

Hotel Buena-vista

If you are looking for a hotel in Matsumoto in the Nagano prefecture during the Christmas season where you can kill time in daytime and you don’t feel lonely even though you are a female single traveller, I recommend Hotel Buena-vista. It is a 7-minute-walk from the Matsumoto station and they have their own shuttle-bus. It suits sightseeing.

the clean hotel near the Matsumoto station

It is a 7-minute-walk from the Matsumoto station and close to the busy street and the Matsumoto Castle. The hotel is high-rise one with a good view. The room and the bathroom are spacious. There is the souvenir shop and the tea-room on the 1st floor and you can even have a meal there. The charge for a single bedded-room is \8,000 with a breakfast and the dining-room for the breakfast is on the 23rd floor with the grand view. You’ll be amazed with the variety of the breakfast food and the good taste. This hotel is the best one to stay in, in Matsumoto.

the convenient transport as it’s in front of the station / the meal is delicious

The meal at the restaurant is delicious. The view is superb. The hotel is recommended for a couple, as the atmosphere is attractive. The access to Azumino, Utsukushigahara, Suwa, Kisoji and the Central Alps is convenient. If you stay at the hotel, it will be a good memory of the Christmas! The local access is also convenient.

the most clean and sophisticated hotel in the Matsumoto city

The hotel is a 3-4-minute-walk from the Matsumoto station. There is no tall building around this hotel, so the higher floor your room is on, the further scenery you can enjoy. If you register the membership, you can have the right to park in the basement as well as the neighbouring parking site for free. Also, you can get some points at each time when you use the hotel or facilities. Depending on the providers, the hotel charge differs, but they are at least a reasonable price. (Rakuten, Ikkyu, the HP of the hotel) By the way, celebrities and famous people use this hotel. I used it many times. Every restaurant has a reasonable price. The meals are delicious. The Matsumoto Castle is a 15-20-minute-walk from the hotel. There are many castles in Japan, but amongst them, the Matsumoto Castle is very famous. You can see the Kimonos at that time and Yoroi (armour) which are historically famous. The view from the Tenshukaku (the top floor) is superb. Around the castle has been well maintained, so it is comfortable to stroll. There is a nation-wide famous buckwheat noodle shop, but if the noodles are sold out, even if you come from far away, you need to give it up as you are unlucky. There are many buckwheat noodle shops in the Matsumoto city, but this shop is something special. The price is average, though. If you couldn’t eat at this shop, I suggest that you should try the “Ozawa-no-soba” shop. It is 10-15-minute-drive in a car. It is too far to walk there. There are many pottery shops and arts and crafts shops around the castle. The sightseeing in the Matsumoto city is limited to those places. If you drive, there are many more spots to see. There are many cheap hotels (through my experience to have stayed at most hotels), but the cheap hotels are really cheap hotels. You may feel sad or lonely on your own. I can recommend the Tokyu Inn apart from Buena-vista. Those two hotels are clean, the staff are polite and the facilities are sufficient.

a female traveller feel comfortable and it is very hygienic

The Matsumoto PARCO and a few department-stores are in a 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. There is a buffet-styled cake shop inside the hotel. You can pop in the \100-bus to enjoy the sightseeing in the Matsumoto city or visiting the Matsumoto Castle. Strolling in the castle-town, visiting to enjoy the Asama hot-spring and the Utsukushigahara hot-spring are relaxing. You can even extend your trip to Azumino.

the good olden-era hotel near the Matsumoto Castle

It is a long-established hotel with the Northern European design, and with a white tile-roofed. The Matsumoto Castle is a 5-mnute-wlak and the Matsumoto City Museum is also close. So, you can spend a happy time even on your own. Almost all the furniture inside the hotel is the Matsumoto folk furniture, so it is interesting to look around inside the hotel. The big bathroom is also recommended. Please visit there to stay.

the right hotel for the Matsumoto sightseeing

It is a fashionable long-established hotel in the middle of the sightseeing spots, the Nakamachi street and the Nawate street next to it. Every place is good for strolling on your own. You can visit the popular buckwheat noodle shops from one to another for your lunch. The furniture inside the hotel is very attractive and you can relax there.

comfortable and not to get bored

The national treasure, the Matusmoto Castle is very close. The former Kaichi School is in a walking distance, if you are young. Those two are worth visiting. This long-established hotel is secure for a female single traveller. The staff are kind and the meal is delicious. The charge is extremely reasonable. You can choose a room between the Japanese-styled one and the western-styled one. They have various plans for a stay. There is a restaurant and a tea-room inside the hotel. If you like a modern new hotel, I can’t recommend this to you, but this is a very individual hotel which matches to the beautiful olden charming streets in Matsumoto.

朝がよい

The access to this hotel is good and the charge is cheap. The Japanese and western-styled mixed breakfast is substantial. I tasted almost all of them. The bread was tasty. You will be satisfied with your evening meal there as well. The room is a little too small, I wonder. The location is good for going out at night. As it is off the station, it is good for strolling around.

Christmas celebration in the Matsumoto City Museum

The Matsumoto City Museum has been exhibiting the popular artist, Yayoi Kusama’s works which we can see at any time, apart from the Matsumoto Castle in a walking distance. Her work, “Kabocha” (pumpkin) may connect with the big bathroom, the “Kabocha-no-yu” in the Matsumoto Tourist Hotel, I wonder. You won’t feel lonely there.

無料のレンタサイクルで松本探訪!

The hotel will lend a free bicycle, so you can enjoy the Matsumoto city on your own. The museum nearby is just right to kill time. The hotel charge is reasonable. You can stay there comfortably on your own.

the hotel in front of the Matsumoto station

It is convenient hotel, in front of the Matsumoto station. The Matsumoto Castle is in a walking distance from the hotel. It is convenient to go to Kamikochi or the Northern Alps by train. The name tells you that the hotel charge wouldn’t be very expensive.

convenient, as it is close to the busy street

The location is just right to kill time, as it is close to the busy street in the Matsumoto city. The next door is PARCO, so you can kill time while you are waiting for your boy-friend to turn up. If you walk a little further, you can enjoy the Yohashira Shrine and the Matsumoto Castle which are the historical cultural assets.

the hotel close to the national treasure, Matsumoto Castle

When you come to Matsumoto, I’d like you to visit the national treasure, the Matsumot Castle. The Central Alps which you can see from the Castle is really recommended. As it is truly beautiful scenery, why don’t you keep it in your photo, as a memory of your trip. The hotel is close to the Castle. Please feel at ease.

the hotel of specialty

I have been living in Matsumoto on business on my own. It is a hotel where I stayed on business. I found the owners specialty at every corner. It is a hot-spring hotel, but the audio systems are in the dining-room and a bar inside the hotel. I recommend their hospitality. As it is not close to the station, you need a taxi, if you want to go out at night.

the creative cooking and the charming hotel

Making the most of the olden charming building, it has become a hotel with the attractive architecture. The meals with the local ingredients are creative and individual, so it is a popular hotel among the locals. There are quite a lot of people from other prefectures who repeat staying at this hotel and especially female single travellers are many. The hot-spring has, needless to say, high quality. It is close to the Matsumoto Castle. The location is right even during winter.

the natural hot-spring

It is a 5-minute-walk from the JR Matsumoto station. The straight road from the station takes you to the hotel. The access to the Matsumoto Castle is very easy. On the top floor of the hotel, there is a natural hot-spring to soak yourself to ease your fatigue from the trip and kill time.

The hotel puts the stress on the comfortable stay, rather than the meals or the interior of the rooms. They have a live concert.

It’s convenient from the Matsumoto station. / The view of the Alps is fantastic.

It is a large scale hotel in the Utsukushigahara hot-spring, but they have a plan for a reasonable price. The hot-spring and the facilities are wonderful. It is close to the Matsumoto city with the convenient transport. The view of the Alps as the background of the Matsumoto city is magnificent. I confidently recommend it.
