“Very near the JR station with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Location is excellent as it is near the JR. It can be seen once you are out from the JR station. There is a convenient store on L1.

Service is excellent too. I thought size of room is quite big compared to those in Tokyo.

With the spring festival period in full swing, our favorite Takayama hotel (Takayama Ouan) was fully booked as were many hotels - so we tried the Country Hotel for a 2 night quick stay with friends.

Once you get over the room size (the smallest I think I have ever had in Japan) and having to juggle where you put and stack your luggage to fit you, your luggage and the beds in the room - this place is fine.

It's easy walking distance from the Takayama station (right in front really) and has food options pretty much downstairs and around the corner.

It's a budget hotel, so for the money it fits the bill - clean, warm and dry if a little snuggly. If you have the cash and the rooms are free - other options like the nearby Takayama Ouan are much more comfortable if you want to pay more - otherwise this place is a fine base on a budget to explore Takayama and the district.

Best location in front of the train station. Small room comparing to other small rooms in Japan, and as usual: no wireless in the room. Typical in Japan.
Totally budget and aceptable for one night.
No smoking rooms available... thanks god.

Visited Takayama in October 2012 and had a good experience with Country Hotel. It was very convenient to find as it was right across from the train station. The staff though limited with English was friendly and accommodating. They were willing to upgrade me for the single price as a single room was not available when I booked the room. The rooms though a bit small for American standards had all the amenities I needed as I only used the room to sleep. A convenience store downstairs was great to have so close by as well. Over all, I had a good experience here.

My husband and i went to Takayama in March 2012, and we stayed at this Country Hotel Takayama. It's fine as a budget hotel. It's very conveniently located across from the bus station. The room was clean but nothing fancy.

We found that hotel rates in Takayama were on average alot higher than other towns we visited. Country Hotel is no exception and we felt it was expensive for what it offered. The hotel is located directly across Takayama train and bus station which makes it ultra convenient to get in and around the town. However although the hotel was clean and service was ok, it really did not leave much of an impression on us.

The twin room we were given was very very small even for Japanese standard. Although the carpet looked a bit tired, the room was very clean. There was no room to open our weekend luggage, nor tables to place our belongs (most stuff ended up on the floor) and we basically had to climb over the luggage to open the door. The bed was very very firm.

There is a small ensuite bathroom, fridge, kettle and LCD TV with local channels and free internet via Lan cable. There are computers in the lobby (located on the 2nd floor) with free internet.

Check in time is at 3:00 PM and checkout time is 10 AM which makes it a bit awkward, so we ended up checking out at breakfast time. The hotel was very accommodating when we requested to leave our luggage behind.

There is a convenient store directly underneath the hotel. It is about a 7-10 minute walk to the Takayama highstreet, restaurants and the tourist sites.

For a short stay (1-2 nights) I think it is an "ok" option if you just need a place to sleep, but certainly not a suitable option if you plan to stay longer.

An average hotel with very small rooms. Rooms look old albeit clean. Location is good as it is just across the Takayama station and walking distance to most tourist attractions. Family Mart is downstairs.
Hotel will suffice is you are planning to catch a few zzzs after a whole day out sight seeing and if you only care about location.
