The hotel is in a good location in a side street off the centre. Rooms are limited in size to other ryokans, and there is no wifi in the rooms (reception on the ground floor is limited also). What we did like is the Japanese style breakfast which changes every day.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms were set like a traditional Japanese guest house. Big rooms, comfortable beds and very clean. The tea set was a really nice touch. Great view from the room to a little water fall and a pond with fish. The onsen was amazing.

The room was adequate in size but slightly old I feel. It may be time for them to do some maintenance work as some of the walls on the 3rd floor had half repaired leaks too. Our room was clean but there was a patched up hole in the cupboard where they kept their futon mattresses which should have been... More

We stayed in this ryokan for two nights. We booked a Japanese style room with private bathroom. The room was a bit small compared to the one we had in another ryokan, but was clean, nice, with two comfortable futons, table, tea, etc. The main problem is that it was an inner room with no views. We chose the western... More

I had stayed in traditional ryokan before, this one was quite different. Maybe it's because we ended up in a 'western style' room which basically mean there is a mattress under the futon and there is a small 'unit bath' type bathroom. Because of the mattresses most of the space in the room was occupied by the futon. Normally they... More

Walls were very thin and we had neighbors above us which or had sex or were walking around, we were not able to sleep with that. Despite thin walls Internet... More

Japanese style, shoes out at the entrance, room ok with private bathroom but a bit old fashioned. The public bath was ok, ampty when we did it. Excellent breakfast. It's a 10 minute walk till the real historic district.

This review is long overdue. We were there in Dec14. This ryokan is within walking distance from the train station as well as the Takayama Old Town. We arrived early before lunch, so we left our bags at the ryokan and headed out for a walk to the Old Town. When we return to the ryokan in the afternoon, our... More

Traditional japanese hotel (not a real ryokan which are much more expensive) loceted just 10 walking minutes from the train station and all sightseeings. I had to smile at finding at the entrance my name written on a wood plank similar to those indicating the sponsors of buddist temples. You have to take the shoes off to enter the building.... More

The hotel is very nice in a traditional ryokan style. The rooms are very nice and clean with nice clean bedding. Our room had the bathroom en suite in addition to a sitting area that overlooked a small garden. My complaint is that for the cost their should either be wifi in the rooms or the staff should not allow... More
