“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Once again this chain lives up to all of my expectations. It is always great value for money in a very pretty part of Japan. The only thing I think could be improved is putting an extra futon on the beds. (I am a wimpy Gaijin) The staff are lovely and friendly, the facilities are always clean, and the location is great.

I spent 3 days 2 nights at J Hoppers Hida Takayama in Sept 2012. Good location and the room was quite clean. The most interesting thing is each beds has its own curtain that provide some privacy. Highly recommended for those who planning to visit Takayama.

Stuffs are good in english, responsive, helpful and knowledgeable in vicinity. There was hotpot night at very cheap price on my arrival date!! Shared bath is clean, shared toilets are always clean. Walking distance to sightseeing areas and restaurant, near to JR and bus station.

Pros: Wifi, great kitchen facilities and friendly staff. The woman at the desk spoke great English and was very helpful. It's a short walk from the train station and a short walk to the key alleys.
Cons: You need to climb some stairs but you can leave luggage that is unimportant on the first floor.

Staff were great when booking us a big traditional room as a double without ensuite on the second floor. it was a big room., toilets down the other end of the hall. Staff knowledgeable on the area. Within quick walking distance to the station. Wifi on every floor. The showers are on the ground floor which could be inconvenient if you have to walk all that way but we decided to enjoy the neighbourhood sento and area onsen so we didn't have a need to have a shower. The convenient store at the station is the closest one and we went there a lot to get water, breakfast etc. Although there are supermarkets not far from there. This is the 3rd j-hoppers I have stayed at, they are fairly much the same.

Traditional room was clean and comfortable. The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful with travel arrangements and spoke very good English. Takayama was a lovely town. Only minor complaint is that the front desk is not staffed all day and the luggage storage room is unlocked.

Takayama is a small town so you better stay in the strategic location so I'd say to choose J-Hoppers.
Rooms are basic & clean. We stayed at the traditional room and it's so big!
overall I love my stay at Hida-Takayama. People there are very polite & friendly.
