My partner and I went from Yokohama to Takayama by train on 21 March, and stayed in the Best Western as part of a Japan Railways package. I love snow but my partner hates it, and we arrived at the hotel in the last throes of winter. The hotel is about a minute's walk from the station, but we arrived... More

The hotel is probably one of the nicer hotels in Takayama. Good rooms and great location. The hotel is very close to the train station (3 minutes walk). All that Takayama has to offer is within walking distance. Recommend visiting the morning market and old town. Breakfast selection is a bit limited. Try to get a room on the top... More

Takayama is a very lovely, quiet historic town. 2 days aren't enough, wish we had spend more days there, exploring the different part of the town. Shop close early around 9pm but there is a fairly large Family Mart opposite the station that you can get all your drinks, snacks there. There is a lovely Tebby Bear Museum within a... More

Nice rooms, clean, well placed close to station. But avoid the restaurant, we were not sure if they knew whar they were doing. In principle they did the right things but there was something lacking. Language skills, knowhow on how to run arestaurant... can recommend the hotell but avoid using the restaurant.

Although the room was small and we were given a twin when we were expecting a double (not the fault of the hotel), the room was fine, the staff were very helpful and the hotel is in a good location, very close to the train station and an easy walk to the wonderful historic district of Takayama. The breakfast was... More

Takayama is a wonderfully walkable city, and this hotel was perfectly placed on a quiet street close to the main train station as well as restaurants (turn to your right out of the hotel, nothing on the left...) and sites. The hallways and rooms are very modern and clean. They felt quite luxurious, though compact. The breakfast buffet was great,... More

The Best Western Hotel Takayama is an easy three minute walk from the train station in a very central location of the town. Our hotel room was very attractive and relatively large by Japanese standards. It had a large picture window with a great view of the Japanese Alps, all covered with snow during our stay in February. The hotel... More
