We were stranded in Takayama because of a snowstorm and chose to stay in this hotel. We had previously stayed at the Takayama Ouan Hotel so it was quite a leap down in terms of hotel standards. While the location of this hotel is very convenient (it is just across the JR Takayama station), the room was dark and felt... More

Convenience is what this hotel is about. Cross the road in front of the hotel and you are at the train station and bus terminal. Step out of the hotel to the right are 2 restaurants that are still open when 90% of the restaurants are already closed before your stomach has had the opportunity to work up an appetite... More

Situated just across the road from Takayama train station, there could not be a better location than this. Remember, every thing u are going to do here in Takayama starts and ends at the Nohi bus center which is just beside the train station. At 10,000yen a night on weeken including breakfast for two is a good deal. The room... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It was modern and welcoming. Great location across from the station in the centre of town. The rooms were extremely clean and compact. This hotel gave me my first experience of a Japanese breakfast (you can have a choice of western-style if you want) and it was a terrific introduction. It came with... More

Hotel is right across from the train station which was very convenient. Car hire was next door for next day's adventure. Hotel is up a flight of escalators. Rooms were small and basic but clean and again with all the usual toiletries. Pillows were a bit strange full of beads/stones but if you turned over there was a softer side.Breakfast... More

the hotel is located right across from the train station which is very convenient, however it's a 15-20 min walk to the old part of town which is the most interesting to visit and walk around. The room was very basic, small, clean but looks old and could profit from refurbishing. WiFi was free and worked properly. Breakfast was included... More

This hotel from a stand point of location is great. It is right in front of the station. I mean from the station you look across the street and there it is. I give it 3 stars comparing it to all the other hotels that I stayed at during a 3 week trip. This hotel was very basic with no... More

Synopsis (Overall + Value) Good location, clean hotel. Pretty small room. We stayed in a twin room at £68/night (£34pp). Would try someplace else if I return to Takayama, as this place seems overpriced for what it is. Location Located within 30 seconds of takayama train and bus station. Lots of shops, restaurants and amenities nearby. Transfer You can literally... More

Well located directly opposite the railway station. Close to a Family Mart store. Cheap enough through booking.com. Service was a bit cursory however. When we checked out there was no one on the desk and no sign of anyone there. Room was usual size for Japan maybe even a bit bigger than normal. Wifi ok, but a little slow,

The hotel is just across the street from the train and bus station, but a bit far from the town's attractions. There are stores and restaurants nearby as well as an ATM center. As expected, bedroom and bathroom sizes are at par with most Japanese hotels. What's different is that you have 2 pillows, one typically contains feathers while the... More
