The breakfast buffet is great very good. You have to take off your shoes when you want to walk around in the hotel, which is very nice I think. The room and hotel floor is made of somehow plastic tatami and is comfortable to walk on. Be aware that only the superior rooms are on the non-train-track side. The normal... More

The location is only 5 minutes away from the station. The hotel and the rooms use tatami as floors. I chose one night stay with breakfast and dinner. The dinner serves local dish with beef and it's great. The hot bath is good and relaxing. The room is big and comfortable with a big wide bed. Everything is good for... More

Takayama Ouan has clean attractive rooms. Another plus is their private onsen with lovely views. The breakfast buffet is also quite varied and plentiful. But the positives stop there. The lobby is a souvenir circus. (South of the Border, South Carolina flavor.) You must remove your shoes after passing through the promotions to reach an assigned shoe locker. We're seniors... More

It is a small town of miniature-like streets and dwellings. They said that this village has been featured in films many many times! It reminds me of the town Lalock in England. We did stroll on the village center where shops and tourists converged . In spite of its understands village feel, the Takayama center is a bustling with tourists.... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights as tourists. We were allocated a high floor room with a north facing view over the city and hills. Fortunately we had seen photos of the hotel as external signs in English were noticeable by their absence! Guests seemed to be predominantly from Asia, many on tour groups. Location: Exit from the...

Located very close to the train station but since there is no English name on the property we did not recognize it and walked right by. The command of English at the front desk is somewhat lacking but we were able to get good service when we needed it. The mattresses are very thin so almost sleeping on the floor... More

This hotel is close to the Takayama train station, about a 5 minute walk. However, we found this to be the only bright spot about this establishment. The hotel is overpriced for the services provided. It is advertised as a Japanese Onsen Ryokan where one can experience the Japanese style of life. In reality it is a modern hotel with... More

Location: 8 minutes walk from takayama station. Takayama is a small town which you can finished walking in one day. Onsen was the best part of the hotel. The hotel was an old building, which was decorated nicely. Dinner n breakfast were very good too. But the reception attitude was one of the the worst I ever faced in Japan.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night before we head to Shirakawa-go the next morning. Location was great. Just 5 mins walk from JR station. The buffet breakfast was awesome. We enjoy it very much with wide variety of food. We got a western room for ourselves as we are travelling with a baby. We also did not manage... More

Stayed here for a night while travelling from Nagoya to Tateyama. Summary of Good points: 1. Nice onsen with good views: both the private (first come first serve) and the public one. 2. Great breakfast 3. Large room - clean and tidy. Right next to a good restaurant that serves the famous Hida Beef. Overall, highly recommended.
