We have a wonderful Ryokan experience in this hotel. We were given a room with river view on the high floor. The beautiful Takayama town is under our feet. We have our dinner served in the room. I paid extra for the Hida beef but the offer is not that great. You can have a better serving in the Hida...

I have been stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel staff is very hospitable. But the breakfast ending time is too early. You need to reach to the restaurant before 8:30am. It's so difficult for some people just want to do the holiday. Especially we still have the time zone issue. We arrived the hotel at 13:30 local...

We only had good ryokan experiences in Japan but this one beats them all. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful. The location is perfect and the diner is to die for: both for the eyes and the pallet. I was a bit disappointed at first that the diner wasn't served in our room, but this was brushed away by...

High marks for the exceptionally kind and hospitable staff here. Wonderful people, some of the nicest I have ever met in my life. Also high marks for the onsen bath, which is conveniently located in the lobby. Your first night when you arrive, it is very refreshing to do the onsen, then go up to your room and change into...

Stayed in a traditional Japanese room which was lovely, very clean and comfortable. The staff were fantastic - very attentive. Hotel is in a great location, very central and not far from the train station. The staff kindly drove us back to the station with our luggage when we were leaving which was much appreciated.

I have a hard time buying the traditional factor when I take an elevator to the 6th floor and walk down a carpeted hallway to reach my traditional style room. The building is run down and our room smelled of mold and mildew. We had to keep opening the window to air it out and if the fan/AC thing (which...

We are so sorry for your comment at our ryokan hotel. We are sorry about the smell issue. We do clean the room and deodorize before check-in. And the tatami mats are renewed last December. However we are sorry we did not know the smell issue you had. For the foods we are sorry about the inconvenience. We do not...

I want to start off by saying that the staff was simply excellent, barring one issue (see below). They were friendly, and took the time to explain whatever we needed or wanted to know. However, the accommodations were simply sub-par. Our room stunk worse than I have ever smelled in a hotel of any sort before (presumably it was rotting...

We are very sorry about the issue. First off the room you stayed was one of our standard Japanese style rooms. For the smell of the room we deodorize our rooms before check-in every day and we renew the tatami mats every year. We really did not know the smell issue at your room.

Hotel is about half a mile from station, but hotel will pick up and drop off. Staff very attentive and speak good English. Hotel had lots of foreign visitors, so everything explained clearly, for example onsen etiquette.

This beautiful hotel is located in the historic centre of Takayama. We stayed for 1 night but we wish we had stayed longer. The onsen was great and not to hot at 40C.
