Very nice hotel just around the corner from the station. Hotel is being refurbished, therefore the room was all nice and new, good bed. Although I had a double room it was very small. Large breakfast buffet.

Stayed two nights at this hotel while visiting lovely Takayama. Walking distance from the train station and to the tourist sites this hotel has a great location. Accommodations are fine and the breakfast was OK . Pillows where a bit hard for us and for Foreigners who speak no Japanese - the in room TV is worthless. No complaints about... More

We left the hotel today after 3 nights and whilst there are renovations underway our stay was not majorily disrupted. The lift was a bit messy and there is currently no bar and only one cafe, where you take breakfast. Did not suffer from paint smells or mouldy bathrooms as others have mentioned. This a fairly budget option hotel in... More

As previously mentioned in other reviews, this hotel is undergoing renovations and there is a horrible smell of paint everywhere but, even ignoring the ongoing works, this hotel is appalling. The rooms are so small that you have to pile the furniture in a corner to get any space for suitcases or, indeed, anything else. The bathroom is also tiny.... More

The hotel is in the middle of a renovation. We might have gotten one of the older rooms. But the size was OK. Either the smell eventually went away or we got used to it, but it was not noticeable later in the day. The breakfast buffet was great with plenty of choices between Western and Japanese items. The hotel... More

The hotel is clean and comfortable, but there is no air-conditioning. There is a dial in the room labelled "air-conditioning" but that just controls a heater. I asked at the front desk, they confirmed that it was a heater and if I wanted cold air, then I should open the window. Otherwise the hotel features everything you'd expect from a... More

The Best Western was not a bad hotel it was just not exceptional. Good value for money. Our room was functional clean and pretty bland. Location was great an easy walk from the Railway Station and to the historic precinct. Happy hour was not so happy with many of the drinks being excluded. Breakfast pretty basic. There is an Onsen...

This hotel has just been refurbished. Rooms are nice, bright and clean. Bed is slightly on the hard side but still ok. The amenities are good. They provide a good quality kettle and even an ice bucket. Overall, a pleasant stay. Slightly expensive though.

Great hotel for the money. Close to the railway station and bus depot. Also within walking distance of notable tourist spots. Friendly staff who were helpful giving directions. Breakfast good with Japanese and western type food. Our double/double was huge and comfortable. We could have done with two more pillows as such a wide expanse! Amenities were replenished daily and... More
