The hotel is located in the best spot of Takayama. It is just steps away from the JR station and the bus station which can take you to Shirakawa-go. There is a mini mart nearby and you can easily walk to all attractions in 15 minutes. The room is spacious compared with the price and other hotels in Japan. The... More

We came today to this hotel. Bang opposite the JR railway station, tourist information centre. The room is really badly designed. There is virtually no storage space in this 'superior twin room'. There a a tiny window, one small folding table where you could put one bag above the floor. If you have more than a bag you have no... More

Located just across the road from the JR train station, this cheap basic business hotel is great for a short stay in Takayama. The room is fairly plain, nothing fancy, you get what you pay for. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The hotel was able to mind our bags overnight whilst we stayed in Shirakawa-go which was... More

Stayed 2 nights in a Standard Twin Room (15 m sq) on the 4th Floor from 31 Jan - 2 Feb 2014. Location: Location is great as it is across JR Takayama Station and the Nohi bus station is just beside the train station. Good for those heading to the Shirakawa-go / Alpine. To walk to the old street and... More

Room was clean and a bit bigger than our hotel room in Tokyo. But the bed was hard, and so was the pillow. And the staff was very polite but not very friendly. So, the room served it's purpose, but I'll go to a different hotel if I was to go back to Takayama (which was a very nice place... More

Clean and decent hotel located just a 5-min walk across the Takayama train station. The small hotel is conveniently located along the main road. Although the frontline male staff looked rather serious, they were friendly and able to communicate in simple English. Our one-night stay was comfortable and it was certainly convenient for us to catch the local bus (at... More

Based on the photos on the website and google map, I recognized the hotel. It was very easy to find, exit the train station and across the road, just opposite the train station. If you are looking for the hotel name, you wouldn't noticed it as the neon light of the hotel name was blinking and not functioning well, it... More

Good position next to train station. But we were very disappointed, The staff very uninterested once signed in. We booked twin room at least 4month ahead and got a room around back of building with a postage stamp window and view of dirty back passage. Room very overheated and beds and pillows hard as a rock.the staff in breakfast room... More
