Travelling with 4 (2 adults and kids of 10 & 15), and booked the Triple bedded Room, which was perfect to sleep 4 comfortably. Triple room is spacious enough for a 2 night stay, incl suitcases. Also, the fact that its opposite the train station is ideal, so just roll the suitcases across the broad. its a short walk to... More

The hotel is right across from the train and bus station so it is well located. It is small but functional, the bed was very comfy. It is right above a Family Mart, and a block away from the main street. Overall it is a good budget option in Takayama

On the average of japanese middle range hotels standards. We booked a semi-doble room, a tiny but functional room actually. The hotel is very well located just across the street in front the train and bus stations (they are together), a 10 min walk to the old houses neighbourhood.

We were disappointed with our stay here. The hotel staff were quite unhelpful and the room was very basic. It seemed to be set up for large tour groups who were churned in and out daily. The location adjacent to the station is good and it is an easy walk to all the major sights of the city.

The placement is very convenient. It's right in front of the station. The breakfast is also really nice, but if you don't have it included, it will be 1080 yen. The staff did not speak any english and also didn't really try. It made me feel a bit unwelcome. Some times I just got stared at. I could also really... More

This is an average hotel that provides basic amenities and clean living conditions. The bed is not too hard or soft, the amenities basic but complete. Staff polite but not overbearing. Toilet seat in room could use with modernization, but otherwise it was ok. Lets be clear .. you stay here for the location... and to be frank there are... More

Conveniently located, simple small rooms which are ok if all you're doing is sleeping and spending all your waking hours exploring around Takayama. Concierge helpful and recommended a wonderful grilled meat restaurant within walking distance.

As many has said before this is probably the definition of mediocre. Staff is unfriendly, no flexibility possible. Room was very warm at night. Even with ac at full it was difficult to sleep. Good location though and very quiet.

Location- Right in front of the train station. We walked up the hill to the mountains where “the walk” is in about 1 hour. Everything is a short walk. Reception- Grouchy man! First short dry employee we have experienced in the entire trip. Breakfast –Looked terrible we went elsewhere. Room-We had a twin nonsmoking that was a good size. No... More

I should know better. Booked this hotel because it offered a great location with an excellent rate. If it's too good to be true… OK, here goes - front desk helpful - there's a requirement to pay in full on check in which is a bit strange and you also have to choose your breakfast for the next day too....
