stayed here 3 nights. This Ryokan is located close to the JR Takayama station as well as close to the "main street" of the town. The tatami is very comfortable and the onsen is very nice. We especially enjoyed the breakfast and the dinner that was provided by the Ryokan, very good value for money and what a feast it... More

The Ryokan Seiryu is fairly handy to JR Takayama station (make sure you have your map or gps with you before setting off through the maze of streets). One of our names was on the front welcome banner and a very friendly receptionist welcomed us to the Ryokan. Shoes are removed in the foyer and stored in shelves until you... More

Good ryokan, nice rooms, although somewhat smaller than other ryokans we visited. Onsen at the ryokan was small but very nice. Very friendly staff. Overall good experience, but we had better stays for this price range at other ryokans during our trip.

To be honest, we were rather disappointed . We found the staff frequently very inflexible and sometimes downright unfriendly; for instance, when taking dinner in the room (not cheap!), we were constantly interrupted by staff determined to clear away, even though we transparently hadn't finished. When on another night, we asked for our bed to be laid out a little... More

We spent one night at the Ryokan Seiryu which was ten minutes far from the train station by foot. They welcomed us with a very warm service. The room was spacious and had everything we looked for. The main area of the room was the living area which would be turned to a bedroom in the evening. The room rate... More

Stayed just 1 night at Seiryu Ryokan with family of 4, but wished to stay more. We stayed all together in a single guest room. It was cosy but fine for all for a good night sleep and great traditional experience. We had traditional full dinner including 2x five kinds of Hida beef in the in room dining. In one... More

A lovely Ryokan that will satisfy anyone's desire to stay in a traditional Japanese accommodation. We had the full experience with the meal in the room, which we really enjoyed - the food was excellent. Even sleeping on the mat wasn't that bad at all! The room as with any Ryokan is basic to say the least, but for a... More

The location was okay and the value was pretty good. It was our second time staying in a ryokan, so we knew somewhat to expect. The room was clean, but smelled strongly of cigarette smoke despite it being a non-smoking room. The room service was exceptional and the in-room meal was one of the highlights of our trip. We only... More

What a lovely welcome - A banner outside with my name and perhaps the word welcome in Japanese! Then my dad had locked his bag and we had to break the lock and thankfully the staff (young man) helped us so dad was hugely grateful. Check in isn't till three so we went to do some sightseeing before returning and... More

Having stayed in a Ryokan on a business trip in 2013 I was keen to share the experience with my partner. Doing this at Seriyu was very enjoyable. The room was basic (compared to my previous experience) but the in room dinner was very impressive, the Onsen was relaxing, wearing the Yukata around the hotel and down the street to... More
