As the shuttle bus pulled up at this hotel we were impressed as we were greeted with a very large and beautiful foyer and inside great staff - all friendly, looked after our luggage (didn't have to lift a finger) and keen to help. The receptionist spoke okay English and were able to give us recommendations and answer any questions we needed help with.
My boyfriend and I stayed in a deluxe twin room. The room was very very spacious! I loved the size of the room.The decor was a little bit outdated but that doesn't matter. Rooms were clean. And having two bathroom sinks was good for getting ready.
Each twin bed was large enough for two people.
The most impressive thing about our room was the view from our room on level 14! Through the large window, we overlooked a view of takayama and the gorgeous snow capped mountains surrounding the town. Definitely try to get a mountain view room.
The Beds were comfy.
Breakfast was included and consisted of Japanese breakfast, western style breakfast (pastries, toast, fruits, cereal, eggs, sausage , bacon etc etc). There was even beer available.
We would eat at 9am and the buffet was still full of food and the restaurant was not so crowded.
Wi-fi in our room was very weak but seemed better on the couch close to the window.
We visited during the two days of the takayama matsuri and the shuttle bus tended to get full quite quickly, however they did adjust the times so that the bus was more frequent during the festival days. The last bus was at 9:15 but even if you miss it a taxi isn't too expensive.
I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone planning a trip to takayama!
Love this hotel and would stay again.
