K's House Takayama is the latest addition to the K's House family. It has only been open since September 2012. So still looks, feels and smells new. Opening promotions include free use of the lounge pc's, washer and tumble dryer. There is also free wifi throughout the building and tea or coffee at breakfast time.
Staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. There is a lift to help with the heavy luggage. A good sized kitchen for food prep and a separate dining room with piped music to enjoy your food.
Located conveniently between the station (10mins), and the old town area.
My single room was compact Japanese size but comfortable with a flat screen tv, pod style en-suite and large single bed. Air con was quiet and warm.
There are numerous places to eat both in the new and old town. The town doesn't shut down at 9 or 10 but requires a little exploration to dig out the Japanese style places, that may appear closed!
But try the cafe/restaurant close to the hostel on the corner. Literally 20 metres away. The lady owner does good coffee, and comes with refreshing hospitality.
If your feet ache a little after much walking around try the Hanami open air thermal foot spa, 10 mins walk on Hachikenmachi street near to the rail station. It's free. Labelled on the local tourist map, available at the hostel, by a pink foot.
Only one slight imperfection for me. Being a light sleeper I was kept awake by an irritating buzzing noise coming from the ceiling void above my room (505). It was from the services I believe. But that's just my problem. Other than that great place to stay.
