This is really a lovely hotel to stay when you are in Takayama. The room is spacious with a scenic view of the town. Although, it is located 10 minutes away from the town, the regular shuttle service make it a breeze to go to the town area. In fact, there is not much to do after 6pm beside dinning... More

The hotel is located at the hillside of Takayama. The twin room was very big and its cleanliness was good. When you enjoy the onsen bath, you may see the overlooking of Takayama. It is so fabulous. Highly recommended to travellers.

I had three weeks of work in Takayama and the Associa hotel was the only one that could accommodate me and my family (wife and baby daughter) for the whole period. And it was perfect. The hotel itself is located on a hillside overlooking Takayama. It has a free hourly bus shuttle service from the early morning until 9PM. It... More

I got to know this hotel from TripAdvisor Reviews. Right at the beginning, I planned to book a room in a hotel near the train station. However, after reading the reviews and the official website of the hotel, I made the reservation from their website. It proved to be the right choice. When I arrived at Takayama train station, I...

Rooms are huge even by A Mercian standards- we had several rooms booked one a triple and it was comfy. Mini fridge in rooms, and massage chair in all rooms! Fun to have yu kata robe to wear to spa and onsen made it feel like less of a big hotel . Morning breakfast good value tasty Japanese food and... More

We stayed in this area for a few days while we traveled through Japan. This hotel is a bit up and away from town and offers wonderful views of the Japanese Alps. Because the road up is winding and has no sidewalks, walking is not encouraged. the shuttle run very regularly to take you into town to explore the area,... More

Surprised how big the room was when we got there. They were able to fit 3 double beds in the room and there is still a place for the sofa and table. The bathroom is also big. Loved the idea that the sink is outside the bathroom. There is a shuttle/bus service to and from the town. Must visit the... More

I stayed for three nights with my parents. They stayed in a deluxe twin room and I stayed in another. We had a very relaxing time for the most part. It was fortunate that we stayed over three weekdays and not during the weekend, because this hotel caters to tour groups mostly. On our third day (Friday), a few large... More

This place regularly hosts 5-6 tour buses, but our view of the snow-caps from the 11th floor was spectacular--only to be superseded from the bath in the spa on the 7th floor. Takayama is a delightful town, and though the hotel is a LONG walk from the town built to represent the traditional villages of Gifu and the downtown, it's... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights as part of our independent tour of Japan. The rooms were quite spacious, clean and beds very comfy, decor little dated (my husband said it reminded him of being in a dollhouse!!!) but overall in very good condition. Although the hotel is out of town they run a regular free shuttle bus that... More
