Takayama Ouan has a rustic charm of the old but yet is is modern! It is within walking distance from the train and bus station. The shops in the Old Town is all within walking distance. There is a great supermarket at the end of road in front of the hotel. The onset is clean and gives out free drinks... More

The hotel is at walking distance from the train station. The facilities are well maintained and the onsen on the roof is a big plus. The quality/price relation is excellent. All in all, a hotel I will visit again when I get back to Takayama

The hotel is clean and close to main subway station. However, after being there, I believe it's worth staying further from the station and go to the heart of Takayama so you are actually close to what is charming about the city. The private hot baths are great (you may have to line up for a little while and you... More

We are long-time Japan residents, but wanted to visit Hida-Takayama for the first time, and were very pleasantly surprised by the Takayama Ouan Hotel. It's a 5-min walk from the train station and a 10-min walk to the old-town district filled with amazing shops of traditional Japanese arts/crafts, sake breweries, and delectable foods. We loved that you take off your... More

The Ouan Takayama is half way between a ryokan and a western hotel. There weren't many westerners staying and very little English spoken, which we didn't mind at all. Our room was small as expected but very clean and quite traditional looking. It had a lovely comfy bed, being a western style mattress placed directly on the floor. The pillows... More

On booking our room, we requested a room on a higher floor with mountain views but ended up on the 5th floor overlooking the train tracks. We stayed for 4 nights. Given the location of our room, it was very quiet. The room was comfortable and very clean. After being in a very small room in Tokyo, the size of... More

Check in was fast and staff is very friendly.The room has a good space and good shower, but the stars are the baths in the 13th floor. The private and public have a beatiful city view . Had breakfast and dinner in the hotel, both very good and... More

The only merit about this ryokan is it vicinity to the train and bus station. If a drive, I would never stay in this place. You have to take off your shoes once you pass the lobby area but no socks, slippers or sandals are provided. that means you either go bare footed or put on your own socks, even... More

The hotel is quite near the JR and bus stations. It takes from the station to there about 3-4 minutes on foot. Seria (100 yen shop) is nearby the hotel (2 minutes on foot). However, we needed to walk for 15 minutes to the sightseeing areas. You need to put off the shoes in the lobby and bare foot even... More
