10/10 Exceptional

Our stay at the Matsuya Ryokan was our first Japanese style accommodation. We stayed here with our two boys. The baths were really lovely. The staff was incredibly sweet. It was literally steps from the Zenkoji Temple, which was amazing to visit. It's on the street with tons of shops and restaurants. We regret not reserving dinner with them the night we were there, especially since restaurants close very early in the evening.

Very comfortable solo trip
Had an incredibly nice stay here, from the friendly staff to the perfectly clean room, and delicious breakfast. You get tea and different snacks each day in your room, so if you're the type to want to take it easy inside sometimes on your trip, it's very nice to have some quiet time in your room and sip on tea and try the different local sweets they give you each day.

Stayed over the new year season and loved every bit of the ryokan and its surrounding area festivities. Room was spacious for 4, although it was abit difficult to open our 2 large luggages. Onsen was a bit small, just nice for 2-3 persons. Service was amazing and food served for dinner and breakfast was wonderful. Amazing for the price point. The surrounding area is right next to the main temple so the location was really convenient in terms of sightseeing and local delicacies. As we stayed over the festive period, the main bus route was closed. We had to take a much longer route upslope with our luggages, so be sure to check before hand! Overall, i really reccomend anyone who’s looking to stay at a ryokan for good food and a would want to immerse in the local culture. 11/10!

We thought this ryokan was amazing! The location is perfect, in the center of old Nagano and a few minutes walk from the temple (convenient to attend the early morning prayer). The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The Japanese breakfast was phenomenal; we didn't try the dinner as we asked for it too late. Note that you need to give the hotel a few days advance notice for meals; they didn't ask us proactively if we were interested in them. The staff was able to recommend other local restaurants for dinner, which was great too. Overall, we loved our stay and wish we could have stayed longer.
