We had a western room on the second floor. Watch your head if you are around 6' tall when you enter the room, after that you are good. Well kept, very adequate room. Breakfast was on time and very adequate. Our discussions with other travelers was a plus. Visited with folks from Australia and Austria and this added to our... More

I went there in October with a friend and we got a room that I thought was spacious considering it's in Japan. The bathroom is also a comfortable size and it's very clean. We opted for the breakfast in the ryokan. It's fine. But just not what I normally have for breakfast - white bread, hard boiled egg etc. Guests... More

Of all the places we've stayed this place has it on everywhere for value, comfort and enthusiasm! We stayed three nights and wished we could have stayed longer! The man that works at this front counter booked us in to restaurants and gave us invaluable info if we're to eat and drink! Loved it all! Thank you!

This Inn is set right in the center of Takayama and is very well-signed (we found it in the dark and pouring rain on foot). It is unexpectedly large, with a round-the-clock desk and many rooms. We booked a traditional room with private bath and it was absolutely worth it; we had comfortable beds, a tatami mat floor, a seating... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rickshaw Inn. It was only a short walk from the train station, and the staff member greeted us and gave us a complete run-down on EVERYTHING! The room was very big, with an entrance area, a ‘family area' area with couches and a TV, an area for the futons, and a large bathroom... More

The staff was very helpful and kind. The location is close enough to the train station and convenient with regards to the river, shop-lined streets and sightseeing locations. We found our room clean, sufficient in size, traditional tatami style with modern ambience. The building's interior decor has lots of character, but that isn't to say it's run down. Amenities were...

Excellent location and friendly, helpful staff. A little run-down -- scuffed walls, stained carpet. Hard western style mattress. Some noise from running water in other rooms. Cold breakfast adequate. Nice common area where other guests breakfast too, with easy chatting among tables. Overall, good value.

Budget inn in central Takayama location close to the river and historic areas. The Tatami rooms are adequate, the breakfast a little below adequate but the place has a certain charm that compensates and the welcome was good. We spent 2 nights here and feel little compulsion to revisit the city but were we to do so would probably opt... More
