The hotel is located about 5 min walk from Takayama JR Station. From the hotel, you can also walk to most of the major tourist sites in Takayama within 15 min. The whole city, including the area where the hotel is in, is extremely quiet and deserted after 8pm. But you do feel the area is safe, as in almost... More

The location of this hotel was perfect for exploring Takayama by either bike or foot. The room was clean and comfortable but a little small. We bought the breakfast buffet for 1200 yen which was an ok value but not as complete as others we've had elsewhere. The spa/onsen was on the top floor and perfect after a day of... More

I stayed at Spa Hotel Alpina in Takayama for 3 nights in a single room as a solo traveller. Hotel was in a great location: only a 5 minute walk from the station and really easy to find. Also only about a 5 minute stroll to Takayama old town and a 30 minute walk to Hida Folk Village. The room... More

Nice hotel - convenient, modern, spacious, clean and good value. We can view the Takayama area from our room as the surroundings are all low rise. Helpful and friendly service. They also have a public onsen on top floor. It is quite nice ... Just that if you are demanding for a proper Japanese traditional onsen experience, this is not... More

Very good location, approx 5min walk from station. Twin room are bigger as the small double rooms. Bathroom is the smallest I have encountered, but functional. Onsen is very nice on top floor with inside and outside bath which is perfect after a long walk and diner. Efficient check-in and check out. Didn't try breakfast.

I've just spent three nights at Spa Hotel Alpina. Lovely hotel... clean and conveniently located. Just a few minutes walk from the station and close to all sights, the main street, restaurants, etc. The onsen was a nice touch as this is a town that basically shuts down by 7pm ish. It was nice to have somewhere to relax in... More

We stayed here one night and it was ok. On the plus side the room was nice, good size and we slept well. The spa on the roof is very nice and the location was good for both bud and train. On the minus side the breakfast was poor and checkin wasn't allowed until 3 (but they will mind your... More

Sublime hotel ! The staff is very professional. The hotel is near the station, accessible by foot, and close to town. The spa is beautiful, clean, very nice. The room is simple, no decoration but very comfortable and quite large for Japan.

Service was excellent, real hot spring on the top floor was great (especially men's bath room have a great view), fine breakfast, only 3minutes walk from Takayama station, the best hotel in this price range.

We stayed for 2 nights. Arrived a good 5 hours before check in and they were more than happy to hold our bags for us - and again on check out. Staff were friendly. Room was compact but clean. Bed was standard Japan firmness and we were able to request extra pillows from reception. The bathroom was the smallest we... More
