It was a choice because of it's location and our first night and it was not in the town but great bus service (free) into the town. Breakfast was good and the room was clean - the bathroom was good. We were unable to have a double bed and a single bed for our daughter but this is Japan.

We stayed 2 nights there (29/12 - 1/1). A very lovely onsen resort locates up the hill. We drove there so the location wasn't a problem for us (offers free parking). The hotel itself is a bit old but very clean & comfortable. Make sure you have enough time for breakfast cos we waited around 15mins for a table both... More

The hotel looks nice and big. The bedroom space is big (biggest we have in our trip) and most expensive hotel in this trip too (we pay about 35,000 Yen/ night/with breakfast). The hotel is old but comfortable. We love the onsen best. There are many onsen pools to hop in and out. We have a lot of choice for... More

This hotel is set on a hill set about 5-10 minute drive away from the town of Takayama. The first impressions is that it requires some updating but the rooms are spacious and room amenities ample. Breakfast was stocked with western and asian fare and the selection was sufficiently extensive. The onsen was clean with indoor and outdoor baths. It... More

Visits for two nights. Have stayed previously about 10 years ago and it's certainly expanded. Our rAs usual, great Japanese service with the onsens being absolutely fantastic. Excellent breakfast buffet both western and Japanese. Large rooms for the 2 adults and 2 kids in our group. Needs a more regular shuttle bus to and from Takayama station, at least every... More

This hotel offers a Western style option (it also offers Japanese traditional style) for those travellers that may not want the full Japanese traditional style all at once! The hotel is very quiet in a secluded area of town. There is a very convenient shuttle ride that takes you every hour to the Takayama train and bus station. The shuttle... More

We stayed here for three nights to explore Takayama and the surrounding areas. There are a number of tour groups but with the hotel being so large, we did not really feel constrained by them. What was great was the spacious room (we had the Western-Japanese room which easily accommodated all four of us) as well as the fantastic onsen... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights recently, while on a small group tour. I had a very large room with all amenities. Although the hotel is out of town a bit, it runs a free bus shuttle to the train station on a regular basis. A few of us used it to go to town to have dinner... More

The location is good, overlooking Takayama and the Northern Alps with a wonderful view on sunny days. There is a regular shuttle bus to the JR station and I do not recommend to go by foot, in particular during the night. It is pitch dark and the streets are unsecured. The Associa is not a cheap Hotel but when it... More

Well out of town on a hillside but a good shuttle bus taking you backwards and forwards for sightseeing. Enormous hotel but large comfortable rooms overlooking the valley and the mountains. Choice of restaurants in hotel and a good shop too.
