Everything has been excellent. All staff I have met (4 different people) all speak English so no problems there. All have been extra helpful and nothing has been a hassle. I was recommended restaurants to visit and where to go while I was here for 3 nights. The room I'm in has it's own toilet, TV (I didn't try to...

This inn is really beautiful, the owners are gentle and helpful, our room was big and the tatami we had were great, they didn't smell at all like other people wrote. The location also was very good, near everything, we enjoyed also a tea after dinner in the relax room. Don't look anywhere else and stay here!!! Thanks again from...

We visited Takayama in December and stayed here for a night. We paid a very reasonable price for our family room at Rickshaw Inn as compared to the many overpriced ryokans & hotels. The reception was also very friendly & helpful. We stayed in the Sakura room which is on the ground floor. It is a huge room with a...

+ Convenient location + Japanese style room with comfortable mattresses + the room is quite big + English speaking staff there's no elevator, need to carry the luggage up the stairs, but one of the hotel staff helped, thanks for that! - the wifi is quite slow in my room (the last room on 3/F)

We stayed just for one night but enjoyed it really a lot. The place is very clean and comfortable and so typically Japanese. There was an English boy at the reception so check in was smooth and easy. We arrived very early in the morning but they kept our luggage so that we could go and visit the town. The...

Very easy to access from train station 10 minute walk and when you arrive the reception, in English, is warm and sincere. The second floor has a small well equipped kitchen and sitting area so if you don't order the 800 yen breakfast ( a good option) you have the ability of making your own light breakfast or dinner. My...

We spend one night in Rickshaw Inn. Receipt was friendly and helpful. We could leave our luggage on arrival and departure. Our room for 2 incl own bath was surprisingly big and even had a sofa. Although the tatami's were there, we slept on real matrasses instead of futons. The beds were good. Bathroom was clean and the Western breakfast,...

Small rooms like everywhere in Japan but good bedding, a real mattress on a tatami mat with a wonderful duvet. We even had a sofa which was great as it is difficult always to get off the floor.Great common room with good sitting arrangements and a very small kitchen with one burner and fridge. Sufficient for a few days. It...

We stayed in this ryokan for two nights and we loved everything about this hotel. The beds (traditional futons on the floor) were the most confortable we had during the whole trip.

The Rickshaww inn offers a nice traditional Japanese feel in the very nice town of Takayama. Although the rooms don't necessarily offer anything special, it's the staff that made me rate this as a 4 star place. A very nice bonus is the youth-hostel-like living space, which has a small kitchen and very nicely creates a place to hang out...
