Japanese style Hotel, the onsen was an experience and very worthwhile the breakfast was fabulous We enjoyed the whole experience, nothing negative
The facilities, the staff, everything was perfect!
We liked the Japaneseness and its ambience!! The breakfast was absolutely fantastic!! The room we were allocated was a smoking room even though we requested a non smoking room. After complaining we were given another room which was very very small - much smaller than the other small rooms we had experienced in Japan.
Location was great. Breakfast was over booked and a shambles. Had to give room number and wait to be called, however they only called in Japanese so we waited a long time until we realized we had missed the call for our room number.
Excellent location. Pretty much just outside Takayama railway station. Description said 5-minute walk. It's more like 1-minute - with luggage in tow. Great Japanese buffet breakfast. Nice public and private baths. A bit of noise from the railway tracks. Not too bad, though. No shoes allowed other than lobby area. Just a minor inconvenience for cleanliness and the tatami experience.
Excellent hotel with very spacious rooms with own hotspring bathtub and massage chair! The hotspring facilities were excellent and the surroundings stunning. Great value for money even if a bit pricey. Check in was not possible until 3 PM and they were not very flexible about it. There were not many in the staff speaking English but they were still very helpful.
