We enjoyed staying here for 3 nights. Our room was clean and futons were comfortable. The public baths (onsen) was beautiful and clean and I was often the only one there. Hodakaso Yamanoiori is a short walk to the main bridge and the old part of town and is only around the corner from one of the main temples.

Comfortable traditional Japanese family hotel in a tranquil environment. Spacious rooms which are well-equipped. Indoor onsen opens 24 hours a day. Should not miss the nicely-set outdoor onsen which opens only in fixed hours. Meals provided in the hotel are tasty though not very luxury.

The staff are really friendly, the indoor public bath is a bit small though..but it's only 2 minutes walk from the station and 5 minutes away from the city market...dine in is a bit expensive, but there's a lot of good restaurant around the block so don't worry about where to dine

If you are a seasoned traveller to Japan, you can skip this ryokan. It is not really near the train station. The interior of the room is run down and is not clean. There is no lift, hence not a good choice for elderly traveller or traveller with heavy luggage. Breakfast served in western style is not value for money.... More

The staffs speak very little English and our Japanese are literally non existence. We find it very hard communicating or raise a complaint. However, the staffs are very friendly and polite. Definitely not worth dining here. Very expensive (20,000 yen + 8% per night), the room is smoky and no exhaust fan available. I would definitely find elsewhere to stay... More

We stayed here in early Dec and was meant as a stopover for visit to Takayama Old Town. When we entered the entrance, guests names were written on the wooden blocks to welcome you. We had two big luggages and had to lugged it up the stairs, thankfully our room is on the second floor! When we entered the room... More

Easy to find and conveniently located in Takayama - where almost every tourist site is virtually walkable to. We were given rooms on different floors - not an issue. We had an ensuite room and took our bath downstairs. Bath came with a really small pool to soak in.

"Boutique" style ryokan. We booked 4-rooms, all spacious and comfortable. We didn't managed to book all rooms with ensuite toilet and bathroom. But we were lucky, when we checked in, we were given all rooms with ensuite toilet and bathroom, at no additional charge!! No lift. Public hot spring bath available, one for guy one for lady. Good location. Less... More

We stayed here for one night in room with private bathroom and toilets located at 3rd floor. Despite some negative reviews on this Ryokan, I find our room is spacious and clean especially the bathroom, the beds are comfortable and we have a good night sleep there. We enjoyed the onsen bath too and there weren't anyone using when we... More

This was my first Ryokan experience and I had little idea what to expect but I can say it was a unique experience not to be missed. The hotel is very well run and welcoming. Our room was generous, clean and quiet. There was a toilet and hand basin and a communal bathing area. Not sure if they have rooms... More
