Pros: Unexpected part of the Japan experience.
Cons: The slippers are for japanses size feet!
Location: 10-15 minutes south-west from the station or take the courtesy bus. The historic precinct is east from the station and across the river.
This hotels most celebrated years are behind it (checkout some of the photos of guests from it's earlier grandeur# but it has all the facilities and good service. We stayed in a family room #Japanese futons# and ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel. High standard dinner and big buffet breakfast. We found the staff to be professional & enthusiastic however don't expect flawless service in english. The courtesy bus to/from the station and the old town is very useful however you may want to navigate their website #via the translator link# to identify the schedule before leaving. There is a timetable inside the lobby on the wall #once you've arrived). Takayama Green is not 5-star, nor a no-frills business hotel, or a folksy ryokan experience. A little quirky, and classy, if a little faded, we had a memorable stay and we would stay there again. Takayama itself and it's surrounds offers a lot especially for trekking/walkers. PS Checkout the top-floor bar and the Lovers Point at the entrance!

Tired and disappointingPosted Apr 20, 2012
Pros: Shuttle bus was useful
Cons: Needed refurbishing
Location: Quiet location, walk to town and shuttle bus provided
This hotel is used a lot by tour groups and as a result, has become very tired. One very positive note is that it has a shuttle bus operating from the train station which seems to meet most of the trains and proved very useful. We had a Tenryokaku twin room advertised as being non smoking and having digital TV channels. None of the channels are in English and the non-smoking room smelt of smoke and an air cleaner was part of the furniture. The room was smallish and the bathroom was very compact. Our rate included dinner and breakfast. The dinner menus were in Japanese and we never knew what we were eating. One morning the breakfast was served in the "Green Door" room which was freezing and heaving with people. The food was not very appetising. All in all I found it to be an uninspiring stay because we paid a fairly helfy rate for our room and dinner and it was all pretty ordinary. We also had to pay a hot spring tax even though we never used the hot spring. All in all - uninspiring.

Ideal place to base yourself for touring this area.Posted May 24, 2011
Value for money is second to none. Though not new, this hotel is maintained to a high standard. Generous size well equiped rooms (with views) in a self contained spa resort make it a pleasure to return from the days activities. Quality breakfast and dinner is included in the price as is 1/2 hourly shuttle service. Staff are always willing to help in any way they can.
