The hotel has a nice location for exploring the city. The hotel is in the center of the city with lots of rest and very near the train station. The room is adequately sized with nice twin beds. However the hotel is old and just updated but the staff was very accommodating. the breakfast was adequate.

As has been said by others, this hotel is in a great location, right in the centre of town, close to eateries and the rail station. Another great plus was the polite and helpful staff. We didn't know how to work our air conditioning ... it turns out there is none, though the dial by the bed says "air conditioning"...

This hotel is very old and dated, the bed is as hard as concrete, the room stunk of cigarette smoke and the man at reception didn't seem to care about anything when we checked in. The only saving grace is there is free room wifi and the hotel is in a great location, walking distance to transport, shops and sites

Only saving grace of this place is the location which is right across the JR station and bus terminal which we took a bus to Shirakawago. This is about the only hotel out of the 30 other hotels we stayed that provided no amenities and I guess very basic. The receptionist was an old man who wasn't at the desk...

We were a group of 6 on a trip to Shinagawa-go for a photo expedition. The location is perfect, directly opposite the JR train and the bus stations. These are the main transport hubs you need when visiting this area. Most (if not all) tours run from this bus terminal. The city's attractions are of walking distance from the hotel....

Location is perfect. Directly opposite the JR train station and Takayama bus stop. 30s walk. Within walking distance (10-15mins) to major tourist attractions, eateries and bars. There's a convenience store too. However, bed was hard as concrete. Couldn't sleep properly through my 2 nights. Slept over the blanket and felt my body itch. It was so bad that I took...

The hotel is right across the road from train and bus stations. The room itself was small - basic but functional. I was disappointed that the shower curtains were mouldy and cigarette smells had somehow made its way to the bathroom. We had to turn on the ioniser whenever we were in the room to help get rid of the...

This hotel was situated in a great location, right across from the train station and a short walk to the markets, stores and park. The room was clean and a reasonable size. Bathroom was a good size. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights, on our visit to Takayama. Just across the road from the train/bus station yet you don't get the noise as it is 150m away. A good location to explore Takayama old town, which is a 15 mins walk. To explore further afield the bus station provides connections to Shirakawago, Hirayu hot spring, Shinhotaka Ropeway and others....
