Very helpful and friendly staff. Very nice hotel, great view. Breakfast is fair but can have more choices. Hotel is on the hill side so better for those who come with a car. Take 5 minutes drive to city centre. Overall would love to stay again.

Stayed overnight at the five-star resort during our visit to Shirakawago and Takayama. The resort was luxurious and beautiful with an old-time charm. Room for five of us was spacious and cosy. The onsen at the resort is a must-go.

This hotel is some distance outside of Takayama so you have to get the shuttle bus in and out. Unfortunately we were given old instructions (the station has just been remodelled) and waited at the wrong station exit so missed the bus. Fortunately someone from the hotel spotted us and came to ask where we were staying, he then took...

We stayed two nights at this hotel as an upgrade from the listed tour hotel, and it was a very pleasant change to get a full, palatial western-sized room (compared with other business-style hotels on our tour).

This is great hotel. Rooms and bathrooms large by Japan standard,onset is one of the best we have been too. Restraints choices are good. There is a shuttle bus that will pick up and drop you at the station. Get a room over looking the alps. Staff were helpful but not a lot of English

This is a large hotel with very spacious rooms with smallish bathrooms. It is situated above the lovely city of Takayama with great views down the valley towards the city. The beds are firm but comfortable. There is free wifi available in the rooms.
