Over rated.
The location, comfortable beds, quiet.
We were quite disappointed in this accommodation. It looks much better on the website than in actuality. We were given a room on the third floor with no lift so had to walk up and down steep and uncomfortable stairs all the time in our socks. They do have the Japanese slippers that you can use but I found them hard to walk in, especially going up and down the stairs and I was worried that they made it unsafe. They did carry our cases up when we arrived but made no offer to carry them down when we left and neither of us is young. We did not eat there so cannot rate the food. The room had the bare necessities although they did provide Yakatas, Japanese style house coats, which was good, and there was a fridge and TV in the room. They also have a hot spring bath which Keith enjoyed. I don't like them so didn't use it. The position is good, easy walking distance to the station and most of the main attractions.

Basic comfort
Location, comfortable bed, air conditioning
For the price, the minshuku is good value because of its location. The rooms are on the first and second floors but the men's bath and toilet are on the ground floor. There is no lift so it's a trudge up and down the stairs if you have to go in the middle of the night!

Great Family Stay
Location of the hotel to train station was excellent. They have large rooms which catered for our Family of 5. Proximity to main areas and restaurants is fantastic.
The Minshuku Kuwataniya Ryokan really suited our family of 5 (3 daughters aged 13, 10 and 6). It was by far the most economical accommodation we could find for the 5 of us in Takayama. The girls really enjoyed the Kimonos and Onsen. As a bonus, the location of the Ryokan is excellent, 5 mins walk from train station and 5-10 mins walk from most of the city attractions in Takayama and the best restaurant in Takayama is just around the corner. Although the English of the hosts was not very good they did everything to help us enjoy our stay. I would highly recommend for large families to stay here.

Small and quiet ryokan in takayama
Close to station, quiet as not in the Main Street where shops are, and easy to find
I think it's not a bad place to stay for couples as the place is quiet. However, as we had young kids I was rather worried that they would break something in there or run down stairs and wonder off in the streets as the main door is open most of the time. The lady who greeted us was very polite and pleasant to deal with.
