Nagano Hotels & Accommodations
Cheapest and best places to stay
Hotel JAL City Nagano
1221 Toigoshomachi, Nagano, Nagano Prefecture 380-0834, Japan
The Jal Nagano is centrally located, being just a seven minute walk from JR Nagano station and a 15-minute walk to Zenkoji, National Treasure, and Higashiyama Kaii gallery. Rooms are clean, small and slightly dated, however you can’t complain for the price is very right. Travelers on a budget will find the Jal Nagano more than acceptable.
dining is limited, with a breakfast banquet room, Chinese restaurant and bar. You’re best off checking out the local eateries.
Single Occupant: $70
Double Occupant: $110
Metropolitan Nagano Hotel
1346 Minamiishidocho, Nagano, Nagano Prefecture 380-0824, Japan (Nagano Station)
We’re not sure what we’re most impressed with, the proximity to the train station, the stunning edifice or the modern, fresh rooms. The Met might as well be attached to JR Nagano station as it hardly feels that you've left the station. The hotel boasts that they are only a mere 1 minute from the station but we think you can do better, perhaps 30 seconds.
Being just a few years old this newly built hotel follows the current trend of modern minimal design with focus on aesthetics. The traveler will be pleased to find that this stunning hotel is not only visual pleasing but is rather affordable.
The breakfast and general dining is also very well done, but it is recommended that you go out into the town for the local experience.
Single Occupant: $100 USD
Double Occupant: $180 USD
Shinshu-Matsushiro Royal Hotel
1372-1 Nishiterao, Matsushiromachi, Nagano, Nagano Prefecture 381-1215, Japan
By no means convenient, travelers come to the Matsuhiro for its brilliant location in the mountains and its ‘open air hot spring bath’. The hotel is about 6 miles south of Nagano Station, and takes 30 minutes by car.
The hotel is located in Matsuhiro, or ‘Little Kyoto’ as the locals refer to it, as it has a rich culture and abounds with tourism.
While the rooms are not as modern and smart as they should be, the hotel itself has excellent dining, service and amenities.
Single Occupant: $100
Double Occupant: $180
Hotel Sunroute Nagano
1356 Suehirocho, Nagano, Nagano Prefecture 380-0825, Japan (Nagano Station)
Just a two minute hop from JR Nagano, Sunroute is in the center of the action. Not only is the location brilliant but the rooms and inside are new, modern and bright (having just been renovated). The Sunroute may be the traveler’s best choice for location, price and quality of room.
Travelers must be warned that there is another Sunroute hotel across the street... it is called the ‘Sunroute Nagano Higashiguchi’, this is not what you want!
Single Occupant: $90
Double Occupant: $170
