The hotel offers a few restaurants which can satisfy your craving for Hida beef and other yummy Japanese food, so that you don't have to make a trip to the town area for your meals. It also has a free shuttle bus service every 1 to 2 hours. The female and male indoor and outdoor onsens are located at Level... More

A few minutes outside of the quaint town of Takaya and just up on hill lies this great hotel. Modern, spotless and the service is just fabulous. Free bus rides into town and the train station. and a breakfast buffet for all tastes.

Our booking through Expedia was made prior to departure, but upon arrival I had to pay an additional fee for a room that could accommodate 2 adults + 2 children (which is what I'd originally requested), plus pay a surcharge for two extra guests, and two breakfasts. These folks are quite inflexible. The facilities are adequate, but nothing special.

We were denied using the spa area and denied to eat at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast for no reason. We were 80 people - had booked a long time in advance. We had been traveling for the past 24 hours, were tired and hungry. The hotel is not close to any restaurants or shopping, so it was a... More

Comfortable stay at Associa with two separate queen beds which appear to be the norm there. We got to see the funda behind 'Onsen' at this hotel as they offered it - for those who don't know, look it up on google! Breakfast was average with not too much option.

The hotel is situated above the town with a magnificent view of the mountains. The view from our room of the sunrise at 4am was worth getting up for - AWESOME! The room was the most spacious during our 2 week trip in Japan. It is a very large hotel with 2 towers. Lots of large groups stay at the... More

You can partake of the gender separated public hot spring bath in the building. The bedrooms are quite large with 2 double beds. The WIFI in the room and the quality of the toilet paper are poor. There are two restaurants on the second floor of yet middle building for the included breakfast, either French or Japanese. The French is... More

This hotel is a bit out of town but they provide regular shuttle service and once you know the schedule and plan accordingly, I definitely prefer to stay at this location then in the town. The views from the room is breathtaking. The staff are very friendly. I had no communication problems at all. I love the breakfast. The scrambled... More

Hotel Associa, two high rise buildings with a spa wing, is perched on a hill overlooking Takayama. The hotel itself is nice and clean. The room is spacious and has all the basic amenities. Shampoo, rinse( conditioner ) and soap are kept in a plastic container inside the shower/ bathtub. Our room has a nice view of the mountains on... More

This is a typical "groups hotel" where different groups of tourists are residing. It reminds a busy train station - people are arriving and going, mostly on the same time...large numbers..and if you are not part of a group it's not fun for you.. We stayed on the 32nd floor in a nice room and enjoyed a beautiful view towards... More
