My family of 4 (including 2 teenage boys) stayed 3 nights here and wished for longer. Our quad room w/private bathroom was very spacious and had every amenity (yukata, soap, shampoo, hair dryer, hot water, tea bags, biscuits) and more. We found our traditional futon beds to be plush and comfortable for a good night's sleep. The shower (excellent water pressure/temperature), toilet and sink were modern and well appointed. AC was great. We used the onsen (women's upstairs, men's downstairs) each night around 9pm, never saw anyone. The onsen is clean and serves its purpose, but be aware it's not a huge onsen you'd find in a larger spa. We were lucky to have dinner (2000 yen, I think) and breakfast (800 yen) at the inn's dining room. Both beautifully prepared and delicious, including Hida beef (amazing!) with miso at dinner. We found the innkeeper (and chef!) to be gracious and accommodating. She greeted us warmly when we arrived, knew exactly who we were, pointed out a storage cubby for shoes and slippers for indoors. The inn is a short walk from the bus/train station, across the street from a beautiful temple, and around the corner from a street full of restaurants and shops. I'd recommend Maruaki Hida Takayama, just a half block away, but go before 6pm to avoid a long wait. All in all, we loved our stay. My advice: reserve in advance at least 1 dinner and/or breakfast--you won't regret it. Also some of the rooms don't have private bathrooms, so just know what you're booking.

We enjoyed our two nights in Takayama! The room was big enough for the futons, a mini fridge, table and our two bags. The shared bathroom was clean and the hot bath was very nice and relaxing. The location was fantastic! Only 10 minutes from the JR station and 2 minutes to restaurants and bars. Maps and tourist information was available at the entrance of the accommodation.

The hosts here are delightful. We wanted a ryokan style accommodation for a few nights but prices put us off. This minshuku fit the bill perfectly. Tatami room for the four of us. Shared bathrooms. Hot baths that we had to ourselves as no one else was staying. Super clean and well maintained although bathroom facilities are a bit dated. Easy flat walk from the station and handy to everything. 7Eleven and Daily Yamazaki conbinis close by to grab breakfast. Excellent value.

This ryokan provide tatami and yukata. Room is quite big for solo. Toilet and onsen is share. I used onsen for two times and always alone. I thought this water is not so clean, i saw dust in the floor. They also only using stairs, it will hard it you come here with big suitcase. The distance from nohi bus station and train station is around 500 meters, it's not so far. And there's have temple near by hotel.

ryokan with shared toilets, bathrooms and onsen. 8 rooms overall so it was fine. The host was very very nice and the location is ok, 7 minutes from the station and close to restaurants. Room was fine. little bit pricy.
