Hotel in excellent location in Takayama”
The Best Western Takayama is in an excellent location, only a few steps away from the bus/train station and within walking distance of the old town. The room size of our double room was much larger than the double rooms in other Japanese hotels, which was a pleasant surprise. The hotel has a nice little onsen with a few hot tubs and a steam sauna and offers breakfast (although we did not have breakfast at the hotel). Staff was friendly and helpful. There are many dining options and a supermarket close by.
Takayama Best Western Hotel strongly recommended!!!”
Location is excellent , walking distance to Takayama station. Staff members are friendly,polite and helpful. This is the third time my husband and I stayed in this hotel. The room is clean. We were upgraded to a suite room which is so spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is very good. We will definitely stay in Best Western Takayama hotel again in our next visit..
Location and comfort”
Can't rate the food as didn't dine at the hotel at all. What this hotel has is location and very spacious rooms. Arrived after a long flight and train ride at night to a snowy Takayama. Thankfully the hotel was a straightforward walk from the JR Takayama station. Took us about 10 minutes to reach the hotel as we were slowed down by the heavy snowfall. Easy check in at the hotel upon showing our booking receipt and boy were we surprised by the size of the room. We were allocated 7th floor with twin beds. Room was very spacious (remember this is Japan, space comes at a premium) with decent cupboard size and the bathroom was a decent one, not the plastic ones found in most Tokyo hotels unless you're at the Hyatt or Westin :) Location wise, hotel is within walking distance to the old section of Takayama where the historical streets and merchant houses are located. It's a nice stroll of about 10-15 minutes depending on your speed. What we like about Best Western was also it proximity to nice local eateries. Had a nice dinner at this cozy little eatery called Hida Soba Kofune which is just round the corner (at hotel entrance, turn left and turn left again at first junction, shop is just there). Super soba with Hida beef. Also a nice bakery further down from the soba shop. All in all, a good stay for us.
spacious, clean and comfortable property”
Really great hotel. The room is clean, comfortable & quite spacious. The staffs are very nice, helpful and friendly. It offers good breakfast as well with a choice of Western or Japanese style breakfast. Location is near the bus and train stations and close to convenience store and restaurants; within walking distance. For traveler who is looking forward to explore Takayama on bicycle, there's a bicycle rental store just across the hotel that offers reasonable price of 300 yen per hour.
Well located western style hotel”
We stayed for 3 nights in mid September 2012 at the Best Western Takayama and would come here again next time. It is ideally located one street away from JR Takayama Station (which matters when you are lugging 2 weeks of luggage with you) and just off one of the main streets which leads across one of the bridges into the old merchant houses sightseeing area (a 5-10 minute walk). The main street also has restaurants and convenience stores. The hotel is a good size for Japanese standards and has all the amenities you would expect from a western hotel. It appears to have been recently renovated with new furnishings in the rooms. The rate we booked via Agoda was AUD125pn (equiv. USD130-135pn) which was an excellent rate for a business hotel in Japan. Staff were polite and spoke English. There were many other foreigners who used the hotel which is a good sign.
ALL THE BEST”
Best Location for transport : near Station (Bus & Train) Best Location for Sightseeing : old Town Takayama Best Location for Eat : so many Japanese Restaurant around the restaurant Best Room : our room is big space, good facilities and free for Jacuzzi and Sauna All the best for Best Western Takayama !
Good, pleasant stay. Great staff.”
Best location, 2 Min. from Train and Busstation. Then 10 MIn. to sightseeing/old district of town.Great SPA, very clean and modern.Good Breakfast, asian/western choice. Family Mart in 3 Min. distance. Very attentive and friendly staff, english speaking. We would definitly book this hotel again. Good to make a day oder halfday trip to Shirakawa-Go and to other areas around Takayama. Or as far as the mountains at Hira-yu and others.
We enjoyed our stay at Best Western Hotel Takayama. It is literally a stone's throw away from the JR station/Nohi bus station. Omiyagi stores and lots of restaurants nearby. It is an easy walk to 3rd cho, the old town. Staff was very helpful. Will definitely stay here again when I come back to Takayama.
Great hotel excellent service”
It is the best hotel I have stayed in Takayama and most part of Japan. I would strongly suggest to Best Western to install washing machines and dryer within their hotel instead of asking the guests to walk down the road to a laundromat. I liked BW set lunch at 1000 Yen which is great value for money.
Great location, great staff, nice mist spa”
excellent location, one minute walk from takayama station (nice after a long trip on the train) and to the bus station (direct access to shirakawa-go) that is right next to the rail station. also a short walking distance to the preserved part of takayama city where you would go for sight-seeing. hotel staff were very nice, friendly, polite, sincere and helpful. the hotel has a complimentary "mist spa" that was relaxing and clean. great massage offerings in the spa as well. the hotel has an aromatic scent everywhere, including the guest rooms, like fresh cedar and other refreshing notes. it has this "spa resort" feel. the beds were very, very comfortable and of note. interior design and decorations were of good taste. wish our stay were longer.
Great hotel, great location, great price!”
The hotel is very nicely kept and comfortable. All was clean and in good condition. The breakfast buffet had a very good variety of both Western and Japanese choices along with juice, milk, coffee and tea. The spa for patrons is a steam room and three individual hot tubs. Definitely not an onsen, but also not paying for it. The women's key card has a red dot on it (lesson learned...). The location is very close to the train station and an easy walk to the downtown area. Takayama is a beautiful town with many things to see. I will stay with my family in this hotel again!
Wow! Very impressive in every aspect.”
My only regret was that I stayed only for one night but that didn't stop me from having a super great time at Best Western Takayama especially with the hotel spa plus. The room exceeded my expectation and had all the facilities I needed. I had a very comfortable stay at this hotel
A cozy hotel with excellent location”
We stayed for a night in this hotel before we headed off to the Hida mountain areas. The room was unexpectedly speacious to us as we thought this was a small business hotel. We drove to Takayama so we parked our car in the hotel with 800 yen for a night. I'm not sure if there is same parking charge in other Takayama hotels but it's reasonable to us. The room was well-equipped though we hope to have some international TV channels at least for some news e.g CNN, BBC etc. The TV channels choices are not many and all are in Japanese. The breakfast was included in our stay plan and it offered wide choice of western and Japanese morning foods. The location was good as well and it's walking distance to most of the tourist spots in Takayama city.
Great location and services. ”
The hotel is located near the Takayama Station and Takayama oldtown. There are some restaurants nearby the hotel. The room are clean and quite spacious. The hotel staffs are very nice, helpful, and polite. Surprisingly, the hotel offers automatic messaging chair in the room which we really find it useful. In addition, there is a free jacuzzi and sauna. This hotel is very recommended and we will stay there again next time we visit Takayama.
Value for money”
Loved the location which was an easy two-minute walk from the Takayama JR and bus stations. There is a Family Mart convenience store just a street away and eating options in the vicinity. It was also convenient to explore the local attractions on foot (Sanmichi district is about 15 minutes) or take a bus if you’re feeling lazy. We opted for the buffet breakfast which was a small but sumptuous spread of Western and Japanese cuisine. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and they allowed us to store our luggage upon checkout till we had to leave for the train. There’s also a sauna/mist spa but unfortunately we didn’t get to check that out this time round.
Good location of hotel”
Best Western Hotel Takayama is located within walking distance from the train station and bus terminal. There is a Family Mart close by where you can get convenience food. There is a spa-like onsen in the hotel and it is free of charge to hotel guests. Staff is friendly and speak reasonably good English. It is also within walking distance to the main street where all the eateries and shops are but take note that the shops close early about 5 pm. From the bus terminal there is a bus going to Shirakawa-go, a UNESCO world heritage site and that is not to be missed. Highly recommended.
Strategic Location, Clean & Spacious Room.”
Booked the twin non-smoking room due to its size. The room & bathroom is very clean & spacious. You can either select a Japanese / western breakfast. The Japanese breakfast was good, we didn't have the western breakfast as we were too tired to wake up early for the free breakfast. It is located just 2 minute walk to the Takayama train & bus terminal. Staffs are friendly, helpful & speak good English.
Bed is huge and very clean. They have the best bed. Not really hard as compared to other hotels. Buffet breakfast was wonderful! The staff are always smiling and very accommodating. Location is also a plus. Very near Takayama station. I would recommend this hotel to others. Will stay again if we decided to go back to Takayama.
Stratgic location and big room”
Stay for 2 nights in the Best Western Takayama. The room is spacious and very comfy bed. Like the public bath in the evening. Very nice location as 2 mins walk to the train station and Nohi bus station and 5 mins walk to the old town. The staffs are very attentive and spoke very good English. Highly recommend.
Great Location and very comfortable room”
The breakfast was generous, the location excellent (just 2 min walk from the train and bus station) and the room clean and spacious. Staff was very friendly and helpful so I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Takayama preferring a western style hotel.
