Beautiful, well appointed hotel with very nice service. Food is well prepared but not not the best. Textbook hotel/ryokan food without a surprise. A few places need improvements. A hard to close door in a public area. (And, the sign says, please close completely!) Bedding and gowns with a slight smell. Stuff left in corriodors. Perhaps, a manager with a... More

Great compromise if you do not want to stay in a western hotel, but do not want to fork out loads for a Ryokan. The room we stayed in was a good size with private bathroom and toilet, but did not use the shower once, as you can have a private rooftop onsen to yourself!! There are 3 private onsen... More

It was really hard to know what to make of this hotel. I have stayed in Ryokan before and the idea of a hotel with some features of a ryokan appealed. First the positives. The bedroom area was generous by Japanese standards, with a large, king size futon placed on a low base, which was more comfortable than a regular... More

Great position only a few blocks walk from the railway station and the other areas for sightseeing. Lovely Japanese entrance and foyer and Japanese style rooms with tatami mats western amenities. Very comfortable and great rooftop onsen. Staff very helpful. Takayama is a lovely, small city.

This hotel is near the train station and does look like a western hotel from the outside, but do not let this fool you. After staying in traditional Japanese accommodations prior to Takayama, we were very surprised as to the setup in this hotel. On entering the hotel, the foyer area is tiled, but to get to your rooms you... More

This ryokan style hotel is very close to the station along a busy road. You have to take off your shoes when you enter the hotel and leave them in a locker. The floors are made of tatami and you can wear the funny socks provided in your room. The room was bigger then we’re used to have in Japan.... More

I stayed at Takayama Ouan for two nights while traveling through Japan in Septemeber. The hotel is located close to the train and bus stations by the railroad tracks and a parking lot. It was definitely not a very posh location, but, as always in Japan, it felt completely safe. Takayama is quiet small town, so the center of the... More

This hotel is in a great location, but mostly the decor is awesome- it feels a little like a ryokan with all Japanese decor, taking off your shoes at the entrance, the rooms - absolutely gorgeous, but there are beds (lower than average but VERY comfy!)- the breakfast has more Japanese options but is very very rich and its an...

I really enjoyed staying in Takayama Ouan. They have great rooftop onsen with great view of Takayama. For those who want to experience Japanese onsen but not daring enough to go public, they have 3 private onsen as well. The other thing that I really enjoyed is the breakfast. The breakfast buffet have many selection of western and Japanese breakfast.... More
