The hotel is located in the centre of Matsumoto and serves as an excellent base for those who wish to hike in the mountains, visit the famous Matsumoto Castle (also known as the “Crow Castle” because of its black exterior), relax at Asama Hot Springs, discover Nakamachi Street which is known for its traditional ‘kura’ storehouses, or explore the city or local countryside by bicycle (Guests can rent bicycles from the hotel).

Buena Vista is the best hotel in Matsumoto. It has 190 stylish guest rooms located on ‘standard’ and ‘executive’ floors, plus it offers excellent facilities, including a shop/bakery just inside the main entrance where you can buy magazines, souvenirs, plus fresh breads, cakes and pastries, and four fantastic restaurants.

Café Terraza is located on the first floor and it is the perfect place for a casual meal or snack. Also located on the first floor is a Chinese restaurant called Seishika, whilst on the 5th floor is Fukashiro, a Japanese restaurant serving traditional dishes including buckwheat noodles which Matsumoto is known for.

On the 14th floor the hotel’s French restaurant, Sorpresa has wonderful views of the town, Matsumoto Castle and the surrounding mountains.

Why Wayfairer

Buena Vista is committed to running the hotel in a way that ensures environmental sustainability and guests are requested to follow the environmental policies that they have in place. For example the hotel asks guests to turn off or turn down the air conditioning in their rooms when they do not need it, and ensure that they switch off the lights when leaving their rooms. They also encourage guests to explore Matsumoto and the surrounding area by bicycle or on foot and they provide information on walks and cycle routes (bicycles are available to rent from the hotel).
