Modern and handy for the station Oct 13, 2013
This is a modern Western style hotel in a convenient location right across the road from the train station. Our room here was clean and comfortable but, as so often in Japan, very small. If you want to unpack your suitcase you will find nowhere much to store the contents, yet living out of it is difficult when there's nowhere to lay it flat on the floor.

But apart from that there's little to complain about here and despite the small floor area everything you need for your stay is provided, including toiletries in the bathroom, hair dryer, robes and slippers, a TV etc. There was no wi-fi when we stayed here, but I think there may be now, judging by a reference to it among the Japanese characters on the website.

Breakfast is included and is a choice of Japanese or Western style. We copped out and opted for Western, having had very traditional Japanese ones the previous two mornings in Kyoto. Whichever you choose it will be brought to you in one go on a large tray. On the first day I was disappointed to find that although the cook here has the all too rare ability to make scrambled eggs (nice and runny not set firm), they were cold by the time they reached me. The second morning was better and I quite enjoyed my breakfast. Having said that, it was quite small for what they charge, so if you haven’t pre-booked and paid for it you might prefer to look elsewhere.

There are a couple of useful convenience stores just a few doors away. We shopped for sake one evening to drink in our room, as there were no nearby bars and the hotel didn’t have one. It seemed the restaurant was closed in the evenings too, despite being advertised as serving dinner, though that wasn’t a problem for us as we preferred to eat elsewhere.

5-20 Hanasatomachi, Takayama, Gifu Prefecture 506-0026, Japan

Good Japanese Hotel in Takayama, Japan, located directly across the street from the train station.

Check in was fast, and staff friendly. Staff only spoke Japanese but good and efficent.

Rooms were a good size and very clean. In room Slippers and Robe provided for services.

You are close to everything in Takayama, all walking distance to all attractions.

Front entrance had a neat looking escalator to get to front desk.

You have a good view of a temple right from hotel and good places to eat right outside.

Area very safe and super quiet,you will never have a problem from anyone.

Beds were clean and comfortable.Clean room, 3 star amenities, but no WIFI. You can find free WIFI at the taxi stand nearby. Old town and sights are to a 2-10 minutes walk. Great value for money, though the room is quite small, typical Japanese hotel room.

Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Location to train station is the key seller.
