        Lovely”

        This guesthouse has a lovely peaceful location. The wonderful people who own it have a shuttle that takes you down into town anytime you want, so it doesn’t matter that you are not in the centre of town. The rooms are beautifully designed and modern, and the whole place has a sense of calm about it. We also had dinner here on our second night and were so glad we did. The meal we had was one of the best we’ve had in a very long time. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

        Best place to stay in Takayama! I wish we stayed longer!”

        Auberge Hidanomori is one of the best places I've stayed in! There is just a certain feel to it that makes you feel like home. They are very accommodating with your schedule and would drive you to Hida Folk Village and pick you up and drop you off if needed to go to the town centre. The perfect time to go there is during winter when the surrounding area is covered with snow! I had the most relaxing bath in my life there. I will definitely stay there again :-)

        Home away from home”

        Auberge Hidanomori is an incredibly peaceful and beautiful B&B. The owners are welcoming and accommodating. They care about their guests' experience and it shows. We had regular contact with them before and throughout our stay. They came to pick us up on arrival and dropped us at the station at our chosen time before our train to Kyoto. We also loved the food. Do yourself a favour and have dinner at there if you can. You won't regret it. The rooms are spacious by Japanese standards, the bathroom never felt like it was shared, and the whole house is decorated in a subdued and stylish manner. Our stay at the auberge has been one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. We could not recommend it more.

        What A Gem Of A Place! ”

        We had an amazing stay at Auberge Hidonomori! Located in tranquil surrounds with a bustling fire and snow beginning to fall, you could not have asked for anything more. The facilities are exceptionally clean, the guest rooms spacious and beautifully presented and the overall feel was wonderful. The family who run Auberge Hidonomori are fantastic hosts, - polite and courteous and will more than happily assist you in any way possible. To top off our stay - you cannot go past the AMAZING ITALIAN JAPANESE INSPIRED DEGUSTATION - WOW! That was indeed a meal that we will always remember and the breakfasts were wonderful as well. Thank you for a fantastic stay Auberge Hidonomori - I hope to return one day but if not - see you in Potts Point for another dining experience!

        A gem of a place”

        Although 4km out of Takayama, this hotel was a gem of a find. This family run enterprise could not be more welcoming and the staff more helpful, always happy to drive you in or pick you up from town. The food was wonderful. Each morning would bring a different, and delicious, breakfast (there is no menu, but trust the Chef). The evening meal was also wonderful. I would highly recommended it.

        The Auberge is a bit remote, but it is so worth the serenity and beauty of the place and we always got a ride with the shuttle when needed. Very friendly family business, all is neat and clean, rooms and beds are very comfy. Highly recommended. Don't miss the excellent italian dinner!

        Truly unforgettable”

        We travelled by bus from Osaka which took about 5 hours to Takayama. Upon reaching, we called Toshie only to know that we were supposed to check in the next day. Toshie was kind enough to still greet us at the station. He offered to look for a nearby AND value for money hotel to stay a night and even sent us to the hotel!!! Auberege Hidanomori is so beautiful, cosy and warm. We stayed there for 2 nights and it was so magical! It was spring but when we woke up, there was snow everywhere. Such a treat. Breakfast was delicious and cooked by Toshie himself. We truly enjoyed being there especially with the serenity, cleanliness and the kind hospitality. We have recommended this place to others and if you are reading this, do not hesitate! It's one of the best places we've stayed and and would love to be back soon.

        Beautiful and charming inn managed by a welcoming, friendly and accommodating staff. ”

        We stood here for 2 nights during our visit to Takayama. While the inn itself was about a 10 minute drive from the downtown area of Takayama, we had no issues getting to and from our points of interest thanks to the management's complimentary transportation services. Furthermore - we had visited Takayama to attend the annual Spring event that is held in the old town called Takayama Matsuri. One of our Shinkansen trains got canceled due to bad weather, so we were forced to take the next bus to Takayama. Because of this, we unfortunately missed the first day of the festivities and arrived at Takayama later than expected. So we could still enjoy exploring and having dinner in the town, one of the staff members drove to the station to pick up our luggage only and bring it to our room. Later than night, they came by the station to pick us up again and bring us back to the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by how accommodating the staff was!

        We enjoyed our stay, especially because the owners were very kind and the breakfast was really tasty. You get every day something diffrent. The room was big and comfortable. There is a shared living room where we enjoyed some time to read and relax. The shuttle service was highly appriciated. After all we would stay again and it‘s the perfect place to stay after a crowded city like Tokyo. We will be back!

        This place is beautiful. They do everything to the best of their abilities. The food here is amazing. I listened to the reviews and requested for dinner here. I'm glad I did. Will come back to this place just for the food. Freshly baked bread every single time. They have bath times 7-9am and 4-11pm for the shared toilet. Initially, I thought this would be troublesome but it wasn't! Never had to wait for the toilet once. Though it's a little out of the way, they have a shuttle to take you out. Keiko and family are so gentle and welcoming!

        The place is great, very clean, large room, shared bathroom is not a problem at all. The house was lovely and stylish, very cosy and the hosts were very welcoming and they made us feel like home. Meals served were way more than expected we reserved dinner in advance and proper 5-course Italian meal served for dinner .. 5 star tasty, and delicious toast for breakfast (I am not into the beautiful typical ryokan meal at all so this is like heaven for me). We enjoyed the fireplace in the living room a great spot for family gathering. We ordered a sparkling and a rose ... the evening spent at Auberge Hida no mori was really a memorable night for our family indeed. Japanese hospitality with western food ... superb !!! Highly recommend and will sure stay here again.

        If you can get pass the idea of having Italian food in Takayama, then this is the right place for a real Italian dinner treat. The chef will be spearheading a new Italian restaurant next April in Tokyo Omotesando Hills and he had been the head chef at an Italian restaurant in Sydney for quite many years before coming home to Takayama 2 years ago.

        A mesmerising stay in the forest”

        Just randomly found this unique, incredibly interesting pension on Agoda, and couldn't be more grateful - it was one of the most exhilarating, memorable stays of mine so far. Literally located in the forest in Takayama (hence the name Hidanomori, "Hida's Forest"), the family-run pension breathes of rawness. Waking up to a stunning view, surrounded by nothing but greens and more greens, the deafening silence of nature, the sweetest air. There could not be a dreamier place than this. The husband chef is a brilliant chef. Infusing the freshest local ingredients with (I think) a good amount of Italian flavours, my 5-course dinner was unforgettable. The wife also makes delicious breakfast for guests. The 2-night amazing stay left me in awe. Will surely return in Winter times, when the place will glitter in snow.

        Great Place, Great Staff. House rules can be improved”

        Everything about this place is great if you are looking for a getaway. There is only one exception. Shower room is only available until 11PM, this means you can't shower after this time. Then again in the morning for a few hours only. That's a bit strange for foreign visitors. Sharing bathrooms is fine but having limited time to use it shower rooms, specially for people traveling and exploring the area is unacceptable.

        The 2 nights in Auberge Hida No Mori was exceptional and fantasy like!!! The house is beautiful, spotless clean and the 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner I had in Auberge Hida No Mori was one of the best breakfasts and Italian meals I ever had! The hosts from Hida No Mori was very nice and warm and great attention to details! The hosts also provides free shuttles to and from the city (which is about 10 minutes drives) at anytime you like and prefer!
