“Really enjoyed this hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights just before the spring festival and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Amazed at the size of our room – huge by Japanese standards. Only negative about the room are the beds – they are hard but that is what we expected. Good clothing storage within our room. Fantastic view of Takayama and the Japanese Alps from our room. Shuttle bus is excellent and makes it easy to get into town and back again. Staff were excellent; found many were able to speak some English which made things easier. All in all a great stay and would definitely recommend it. Someone has mentioned Shirakawa – definitely make the time to go as its beautiful

If this is not a 5 star hotel, it should be. Very well kept accommodations, wonderful views of Takayama and the valley, excellent food & service, and the most fabulous onsen spas! We were there for 3 days/2 nights during the Autumn Festival in Takayama (shuttle bus into town makes it very convenient). The natural hot springs onsens (one for men; one for women) have several different pools and waterfalls to enjoy, with great views. While you're in the area, don't miss a visit to Shirakawa.

A classy resort with rooms much bigger than typical Japanese hotel rooms. Its Japanese bath facilities are highly impressive, with outdoors pools and tubs looking out on the mountains and the town of Takayama below. Many restaurants in the hotel, including an inexpensive one next to the Japanese bath facilities and looking out on the town below. A shuttle bus runs regularly between the resort and the Takayama train station downtown. Breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of choices. Strongly recommended.

Even though the hotel is situated 10 minutes out of town it really wasn't a problem as a bit of forethought and planning ensured that the hotels free bus was available. We were most impressed with the quality of the professional service provided by the staff. The hotel is very impressive with room views of Takayama and the Japanese Alps that are worth the the room charge by themselves. The meals were excellent as were the onsens. The early morning views from the onsens were sensational. We would rebook tomorrow and stay at least a week if it was possible.

Room Tip: Work out the bus service early

The hotel rooms are spacious and very comfortable, even if the decor is a little dated. The beautiful onsen, with great views of the mountains and the town is a very big bonus. My wife loved the spa and rates it as one of the best treatments she's ever had.

This is a very nice modern hotel, and extremely pleasant. It is served by a good bus shuttle service into town and a good pickup service from the train station..

Room was nice and large as well, and breakfast was a splendid buffet..

Only 2 things i cud hv wished for - i) that it was not so popular with large tour groups; somehow this is always a dampener for me; and ii) that they had a bar - there was no place for a drink unless one visits one of their expensive restaurants for dinner... The lounge cafe would have been great if only it remained open late..

Nevertheless, a nice hotel and recommended..

About a 10 minute free shuttle bus ride from JR station. Very modern, very large onsen hotel with fantastic spa facilities including indoor/outdoor (segregated) onsens on 5th and 7th floors. Good restaurants (japanese and more western). Very good buffet breakfast. Had a deluxe double (twin beds - more the norm in Japan) on 16th floor with lovely views of the Japanese Alps. Rwell equipped. Rooms are huge by Japanese standards and large by European/US standards. Very well equipped with very good bathrooms. Some English spoken but few non-japanese in evidence. A very good hotel indeed.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe twin/double. Rooms are larger and on higher floors and price difference in not lar...
