A simple, good value hotel next to the station. The rooms are small but very clean and the staff were extremely helpful. All the main town centre tourist sites in Takayama are within around 10 min walk from the hotel. The hotel also offers a free shuttle bus to a traditional Japanese Onsen (hot spring bath) in the evenings which... More

A very beautiful place in Japan, very nice for the tourist,special to visit the old city, the same a lot of small restaurants to go and take dinner in the traditional spirit of Japan. Nice buildings, very clean city, calm and relaxant moments in Takayama. I recommend very high this place to visit

After reading the reviews I was not looking forward to staying here. Due to peak season it qas the only option we had. We are a tall couple (193 and 181 cm). And the reviews give you the idea that the rooms are small. Breakfast is bad, there is no service and there is no airco. As an experienced traveler... More

We stayed here 3 nights, perhaps a little too long. For the price we paid, we expected more but this being touristy Takayama, perhaps hotels here cost more than usual compared to other Japanese towns/cities. This hotel is best described as basic and functional, offering nothing more than perhaps a good night's rest but lacking any charm, ambience and friendly... More

Great location next to the train station. Size of room is ok by Japanese standard no thrill hotel offering basic service. Wifi works well. Check out is 10 am which is a bit early. Room is clean and well kept. Quite a number of good restaurants within walking distance.

We, a group of four persons, stayed for one night at this centrally located hotel.I were in a single bed room. Rooms was of average size. Room and toilet were clean. The breakfast is excellent and service is prompt. Person at reception was very courteous. Tea making facility was available. I liked the place and would like to recommend.

I stayed in Takayama Washington Hotel Plaza for three nights. This hotel is right in front of the JR station and bus station, so very convenient. When I checked in, I was assigned a small double room on the 3rd floor, which was very noisy (in fact most of the rooms are at the station side). As I do prefer... More

This hotel was fine for our one night in Takayama. There is nothing to rave about. It is a basic hotel with no frills but the cost is reasonable and I think it is a good value. The room, bathroom, and public spaces were very clean. The mattress was quite hard. The front desk staff did their job in a... More

Do yourself a big favour and read all the negative reviews on this place as they are all accurate. And do yourself one more favour. DONT stay here!! A hostel would be a better choice and value than The Washington. Apart from free WiFi there are no other positives. Total rip off for what you receive. We paid $300 +... More

This hotel was one of the last with rooms during my last minute spring travels to Takayama. The reviews left me feeling ok about it, but not enthusiastic. In short, my expectations were met and not exceeded. If you're expecting a budget hotel in a convenient location without anything fancy where you just want to crash after a long day... More
