“Nice hotel, good facility”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights, during Christmas Eve and have a wonderful white Christmas. The hotel is nice, with friendly staff, we drive car here and the hotel provide parking space ( with very cool parking system ! ) . They also provide breakfast. On our first day we wake up late, and it almost 10 am when we went down for breakfast. They staff still willing to accommodate us, and rearrange the food again.

It is well located, restaurants are just few steps away. But be aware that most shops and restaurant in takayama close early, maybe because it's winter, not sure how it is in Other season.
Overall, i'd recommend this this hotel for a nice holiday in takayama. And another thing, good value for money.

The hotel is near the train station and it was convenient with all the bulky luggages. The reception has friendly staff. They helped to cut my luggage lock as my lock was broken. The hotel room is pretty comfortable for 3 people as well. The massage was pretty good too! Will definitely go back.

Hotel located very close to the station. Just 3 minutes walk. About 15 minutes walk to all the action of Takayama. Breakfast was a very interesting Japanese and Western spread. Spa is nice as well. Only down side was we arrived 10 minutes before check in and the front office told is to wait 10 minutes more. The heater in the room was only low medium high. Low was too hot for the room even after leaving the windows open. So we had a very uncomfortable night. Hotel is dated. Needs a bit of upgrading. The only English Channel was CNN. At least there is an English Channel I guess.

After disembarking from the train, the Hotel is just 2 minutes away by foot from the train station.

Staff give great service. They anticipated that since we had a young child, they combined the 2 beds so we would have more room.

Breakfast was also interesting as well as delicious. You not only have the usual suspects but they also made it a point to include the local specialties.

On the last day, the sole of my shoe came off due to too much exposure to snow. The hotel staff found me some super glue at 7.30am in the morning in 5 minutes. I am very grateful for their fantastic service.

Room Tip: book the iSite tour to shirakawa-go from the hotel. They pick up and dropoff directly from this hote...

Our party of six stayed two nights in early December. Takayama is an enchanting town, and the hotel was great. Very helpful staff, particularly the young woman on the front desk who spoke excellent English. Comfortable and large rooms, good breakfast buffet - both western and Japanese - and central to everything. Thank you Takayama for a wonderful time.

This hotel is less than two blocks from the train station, so it's easy to arrive and settle in. The rooms are ok, not great: they're small and the lighting is horrible, so if you stay here and want to read before you go to sleep, bring a reading light (or backlighted ebook). Halls are also pretty dark so hotel seems gloomier than it really is.
Staff is friendly, in some cases too much so, as employees are very very eager to please and will bend your ear off trying to answer a very simple question (like providing directions to a restaurant). That's definitely better than the surly service you get in many American hotels, but sometimes a little too much to deal with.
Breakfast is ok, not great.
But hotel is within walking distance of almost everything (except the ethnic village) in Takayama which is a wonderfully quaint old mountain town. Worth the visit for that alone.

Stayed in this place with my friend for 7 days, felt the place is comfortable since used the room for sleeping alone. Except for the proximity to takayama station and breakfast spread... nothing special.. Don't expect reception to speak english just because the hotel is western..

Room Tip: Choose a room in top floor and corner..
