Takayama Green Hotel

Reviewed 20 June 2013

We stayed at the Takayama Green Resort for 2 nights in a Western style twin room and found the room to be clean and comfortable. The room was a great size - the most spacious we've had in Japan so far (which isn't saying much as rooms here are tiny). The only down side to the room was that, despite requesting a non-smoking room, it still smelt like stale cigarette smoke. The hotel itself is very large and has great onsen facilities for both men and women. There are 3 restaurants within the hotel; we tried the buffet dinner one night and found it to be quite good, though a little expensive (as expected from a hotel restaurant really). If you prefer to go into town for meals, it's only about 750m walk away and they have a free shuttle bus which can pick you up and drop you off from the train station in town. Overall we found the hotel to be good value, comfortable and a convenient base from which to explore Takayama.

This hotel is well postioned just a 20 minute walk into the spring festival action down town.
The rooms were of a good size but bathroom was tiny.

Has the largest gift shop in the world attached to it

Traditional dinner was a great experience and breakfast was very good.

Worth a stay

This is a very large hotel with very spacious suites. We stayed in a Japanese style suite and would recommend it highly to others. It is a little out of downtown Takayama but not too far. It has the largest souvenir, drink and food shop I think that I have ever seen. We would stay there again and recommend it to others.

This is a big hotel with two very nice (and not at all crowded) onsen.
In the late mornings ! was colpletely alone in the female onsen.
The japanese rooms are nice but a bit old.
We had dinner included in the price, but did not like the food that much though...

Takayama is a lovely traditional village and it is a pity the Green Hotel, which has a promising name is a large unattractive building from the outside and not in keeping with the town. However the traditional bedrooms are simply but nicely furnished and have quality futons etc, the entry level lounge area is spacious and looks out to a very pretty garden and the stand out is the onsen. The onsen is large spotless and beautifully arranged and has a lovely setting.

We were part of a tour, so had not booked our own room. We were very surprised to find that we had a rather unusual room- a sort of junior suite (?) Half of it was a traditional Japanese tatami room with scroll alcove, low table and seats. The other was a typical Western twin bed room. This room, and the hallway, seems to be showing it's age a bit; although it was scrupulously clean. We had a very lovely view down onto the gardens of the hotel.

The onsen is the major selling point of the hotel. Very nice and heavily attended on the night we were there.

We dined at the hotel that night and enjoyed the hida beef dinner very much. Breakfast is served buffet style in the top floor restaurant. There is a wide variety of both Japanese and Western foods available. My tip would be to get there early to avoid waiting in a long line for a table.

We found the staff to be very courteous and helpful. If someone didn't speak English they were very prompt in finding someone who did.

Having stayed here last year we decided to come this year for the Autumn Festival and stayed 3 nights. Apart from being allocated a smoking room (Hotel full) everything else with the room was fine. Would recommend that if you stay for more thaan a night consider eating out the second time as the Viking Menu, whie good, does not vary. The Hot baths are good and easy to access. As it seems with most Japanese Hotels they only have WiFi in the reception area although hard wiring is avaiable in the rooms. Try and get to the 8th Floor for breakfast, relaxed and good views accross to the mountains. Only one thing that I would say, the room doors do not automatically lock so remember to lock the door when you go out.
Service is good and there is a shuttle bus that runs to the station which coincides with the through trains from Gifu.

Room Tip: If a non smoker, definitely book a non smoking room
