The Ryokan is fully well-maintained even it is running by an elderly couple. The lady owner could speak a little bit of English and we were told that hers was the first built in Takayama during those days. We were impressed of this because from we've seen, public or private hot spring, tatami floor or bathroom they are all clean... More

Peaceful and relaxing experience with the breakfast and evening meal brought to our room by friendly ladies who were happy to show us how to eat some of the unfamiliar items on the menu! Everythng was delicious, and the suite (tatami mat room, private bath... More

Ryokan Tanabe is the 4th ryokan we've stayed in on our current trip to Japan and I must say, it stands heads and shoulders above the rest. Like the other reviewers have mentioned, Tanabe's central location is great. It's about 6 minutes walk to Takayama Old Town and the Miyagawa morning market. The rooms are large for what they charge.... More

The Ryokan is located in the heart of town, a few minutes walk away from the Miyagawa River morning market and San-machi. The location just could not be more convenient for someone to explore Takayama on foot. It is also very close to Honmachi, a street with more upmarket shops, restaurants and cafes. If you walk down this modern shopping... More

What a lovely hotel. Efficient, caring and friendly staff and the meals were beautifully presented and served. A wonderful experience. I was a little concerned when my travel agent suggested this hotel but she was 100% correct. It would have been an absolute shame to stay in a western style hotel in Takayama like I have done in the past.

We travelled as a family of 4. Strangely (?) my wife and I we chose to stay in the same room with our 16 and 20 year old daughters. It was bit like a slumber party with all spread across the width of the room. Nonetheless it was very comfortable, food unbelievable and the staff were fantastic. Sitting in the... More

From reservation to check out, everything was perfect. Mrs Tanabe answered our mails swiftly and even reserved our bus trip further on to Kanazawa. Japanese service all the way! We had a Yubokuan room with private wooden bath. Dinner and breakfast were a real Japanese experience. Staff were very nice. Highly recommended !

The this is the second Ryokan we've stayed in, with this Ryokan being very modern, and many more rooms in comparison. The... More

This is not my fist trip to Japan or Takayama but I really enjoyed my stay at Tanabe Ryokan. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great rooms with very nice Onsen. I also really enjoyed my included breakfasts and dinners, very good place.

We were very happy with our stay at Ryokan Tabane. Initially there was a mix up with our booking through agoda.com however, this was sort out by staff with the minimum of fuss and no inconvenience to us. The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. They made our stay even more enjoyable. The rooms are large and traditional with tatami... More
