Ouan is an interesting mixture of Japanese ryokan - with the amenities of a Western hotel. When you check in you get a locker - and never wear shoes inside the hotel :) They provide comfortable Japanese house dresses (available in all sizes) that you can wear in the restaurant and everywhere. It is an excellent place to experience some... More

I don't understed why this hotel got high rate. There are several hotels in takayama that are much better (value for money). check other hotels before you book this one. The hotel is next to train's railway so you will not have quiet. It is not in the center of the city and it is very old.

He says that I must do a reservation in advance, it was late and we are tired, after a big discussion they... More

Nice quiet stay in a typical Japanese Hotel, breakfast the Japanese way, bathing in onsen traditional bath. Everything clean and a nice atmosfere. The Hotel is situated near the station and busstop. Takayama is a nice place to visit people are friendly.

We stayed at this hotel for one night as a side trip on our way from Tokyo to Kyoto. It was a very nice hotel if you want a Japanese flavor without the Ryokan experience. The rooms were tatami mats and bed similar to futon but a little more comfortable. Although the rooms are small, they are well laid out... More

Not sure what you are looking for, but, here are a few things we would have liked to know before booking. This is a basic hotel, not Western in any way, as was advertised. You are greeted with military precision, No warm welcome smiles. Not much in the way of English spoken here at all. We were OK with taking... More

This hotel is very well located about 5 mins walk from the train station and in walking distance of many of the local attractions. Shoes are stored in lockers downstairs whilst in the hotel with nearly everyone wearing the Japanese Pyjamas that were provided with either the special socks supplied or bare feet. The rooms were small but there was... More

Other than the good location was wonderful, the hotel was not worthy of the price paid. The reception was busy and you don't feel any attention given. The rooms were small, more so,the bathroom. The shower is but a cubbyhole, difficult to maneuver. The buffet breakfast was only so-so.

This hotel just makes you chill out, probably because you can walk around it in slippers and PJ's! You have to leave your shoes in a shoe cupboard downstairs! The room is beautiful, small but cosy. There is a free laundry and private onsens you can use which are soo relaxing. It's a short walk from the station and great... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. We booked the room for 3 persons from Jalan (As the room rate was low, no tooth brushes were provided; and the check-in time was at 6pm...but we could put our luggage in the front office). The location of the hotel is good, which is next to the Takayama JR station. The hotel is... More
