This place has a pretty good location a few minutes from the train station. The lobby is attractive and the rooms are nice and clean. Friendly staff as well. I'd certainly stay here again. On the way to the hotel from the station, you may pass a sports shop, and adjacent to it is a small ice cream shop. The... More

It takes 5 minutes walk to takayama station and bus station. The room is clean and tidy, with small onsen on top floor. you can relax after trip to Shirakawa-go, gokayama, or hida furukawa. Breakfast is ok which costed 1200 yen. Surely will come again next time.

Just 5 minutes from the bus/train station and a few minutes walk from old town, this hotel was a great base for our stay. The breakfast and onsen were nice, as other reviewers have said. The rooms were cozy and clean, and we were lucky enough to have a great view. The only real downside was that our room had... More

This hotel is located within 5-10 minutes walking distance from the Takayama Train Station. Friendly counter staff and has complementary hot coffee at the lobby area which was very welcoming during cold weather. Room size was rather decent for the 2 of us and we love the rooftop Onsen. After a long day journey, a trip to their Onsen will... More

I am aware of the tight space in Japan hotels, but I was not quite ready for what I saw when I opened the door to our hotel room, it was really small including the toilet/shower! It was functional so it would do if you are just staying for a night or 2. Despite the small rooms, there are other... More

Within walking distance to the train station and the various tourist spots in Takayama this hotel serves its purpose. I wasn't expecting much and found the hotel functional & conveniently located for a couple of nights. Room was clean, wifi good and the onsen/change room was clean. I requested a quiet, non smoking room and was given one at the... More

We had three rooms at the Spa Hotel Alpina - two standard doubles and one deluxe double. The deluxe cost more, but gave a bit more space and included space for a sofa. If price/availability was not an issue, the deluxe would be my pick, but the standard double rooms were ok. Bathrooms were on the compact end of the... More

This hotel is a short walk from the train. It is modern, quaint and lovely. The rooms are fine, and simple. The onsen is on the 9th floor, and has an outdoor one with views of the city. The staff were fine and pleasant. You are a 5 minute walk to the old town, and the beautiful Miya gawa. I... More

Since we don't want a Japanese style ryokan so we picked a western style hotel. And it should be categorised as a simple business hotel. The location is good and it's assessable to the tourist spots. The rooms are smallish but enough. There is a public Onsen on the top floor. The breakfast is amazing. But strangely enough it's the... More
