Was not sure what to expect. The hotel is up on a hill overlooking some fields. The shuttle from the train station runs once an hour and takes about 10 minutes. The hotel is large, but we were given a great room and never felt crowded at the meals or elsewhere in the hotel. Room was large. It had ashtrays... More

The location of the Hotel is a bit far out of town BUT the shuttle service runs so frequently it did not concern us. The location of the hotel ensured that it would be quiet. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. There was a good selection for breakfast. The staff were helpful and spoke English. I... More

The staff was very helpful and courteous at every turn. Most of them spoke English and would take every opportunity to make one feel at home. If you have never been to a japanese spa then you have missed an experience. The Associa's is on the 6th floor which allowed one a view of the stars as well as Takayama... More

We're a mid 50s well travelled Australian couple who travelled to Takayama as part of our first trip to Japan and we booked this hotel online a few months beforehand. Accommodation options in the area were limited due to the annual autumn festival running over that weekend and communication over email beforehand was stilted. The hotel is situated on a... More

The rooms are humongous by most standards and very comfortable. The staff are efficient with checking you in and out nicely but nothing more than that really. Good views and seems to be a popular place for group tours and some noisy ones too ! Location is quiet and a long walk into town with nothing much in between so... More

We spent two nights here and loved it. Whilst located a bit out of town they provide a shuttle bus to and from the Takayama station but if you are catching a train make sure you get on first as a tour group grabbed most of the seats on one of our trips. We booked a double room which had... More

This out of town resorthotel with a shuttle bus to JR station Takayama focuses on Asian guests (Chinese groups). The rooms are spacious and clean. No roomservice. The view is awesome, the Japanes restaurant very good and check-in quick. The wifi: horrible.

The triple room is extraordinarily spacious, with a view overlooking the city. It is very clean, everything looks new probably it has just been refurbished. The onsens are very good, clean, with city view as well. It's really relaxing and enjoyable. The public areas are also clean and spacious. The breakfast is full of varieties while the restaurant is nicely... More

The Associa Hotel is not the most subtle human construction in Hida Takayama, but this congested city of nearly 100,000 citizens does have some doozies. What the Associa does have is comfort, efficiency and a good included free breakfast. The rooms are quite big, but a little jaded. Overall sleep quality conditions were OK, but Internet was very slow and... More

We had stayed at the Associa on at least four occasions during our residence in Japan. On our return visit after 6 years absence things had definitely moved in the wrong direction! The staff were unhelpful...even surly at times, perhaps due to the mass of bus based foreign tourists overwhelming the hotel. The bar was closed despite it appearing on... More
