One of the staff can speak very very good English and very helpful(He is normally the driver who picks you up). You can call the hotel to pick you up when you get to the station. They also provide suitcase-dropped service in case on the next day you want to travel to Takayama or Shirakawago village and then want to... More

Had an indifferent experiences with rooms, had booked in for 3 nights but my partner had to return home for an emergency. We had booked a triple room which was massive (with western toilet & basin) which I stayed in the first night then the manager offered to move me to a double room ( needed some revamping) which still...

We were very satisfied with our stay at Murayama- we had a large room in traditional Japanese style with a big bathrom and toilet, public onsen( traditional hot bath with wather from hot springs)- all for a nice price. We could choose between English and Japanese breakfast, I had it Japanese style- a good idea if you like fermented beans... More

We liked the surroundings and some of the walking path around are charming. The staff is very welcoming but we were disappointed by our room and the shared bathroom cleanliness. Besides, it is way too far from town for walking back and forward to town for visits and dinner. The ryokan has a disused charm but I won't recommend it.

This was our first Ryokan on our Japan tour and was a nice introduction. Had a little problem at the train station, we had noted the free shuttle bus info in the details but had not considered how/where we pick it up from. Thankfully the Tourist Information desk outside the Station found the Hotel phone number and pointed us in... More

I would only stay here if you are here for a few days. I was there one day and walked back and forth to the town 20-30 minutes each way. They did pick me up from the train station. They put me in a nice room with a squat toilet, but its was near the flue for the hot tub... More

Murayama is a lovely ryokan with comfortable rooms and amenities, a spacious dining room, a public bath that we loved, and WiFi. The staff was helpful and accommodated us for a late meal even as their kitchen was closing. The ryokan is outside town and after 5pm, they do not give you a ride to or from the station but... More

Ryokan Murayama is not upmarket accommodation. It is a very comfortable and friendly place to stay and represents good value. We had a large room with a private bathroom and separate toilet. Our room had tatami flooring and futon bedding on the floor. When we arrived it was very chilly, so we were relieved to find that the heating/ air-conditioning... More

We stayed here whilst visiting Takayama. We found it to be quite far away from the main attractions and had to get taxi's to the centre and from the station. It was cheap and cheerful but nothing special. The rooms were large enough and comfortable, and there was internet downstairs and wifi throughout which was really helpful, the bath was... More
