Rickshaw Inn has a fabulous location midway between the JR station and the historic district east of the Miyagawa. As with most accommodation options in Japan, everything was kept spotlessly clean. Rickshaw Inn is also a stone's throw away from Suzuya restaurant which has been recommended in other forums for its Hida specialities. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - I had emailed them a week before my stay asking them to help make reservations at Ryotei Susaki and they obliged readily. The inn provides a detailed map of the locality showing various restaurants, grocery stores and pharmacies. They will also have great recommendations for meals. Alternatively, you can do a spot of cooking in the lounge on the second floor.
No problems with email communications in English. Do bear in mind that there is a 12am curfew, but Takayama is a sleepy town anyway, so that shouldn't be too much of a bother.
