            This is second time I stayed in this ryokan. Old ryokan with onsen facility. The owner is very nice and helpful. A bit far from city centre but as I drove it is not an issue at all. Highly. Recommended.

            Appreciated the traditional Japanese experience”

            Staff, its a traditional in and food.

            We were very happy to stay at Ryoken Murayama. We booked it to experience a traditional Japanese inn and were happy we did so. The hotel offers a very easy transfer from the station, rooms are reasonably basic but authentic and comfortable, bathing facilities are communal but I had them to myself while staying and they were very clean - appreciated the large hot bath in particular. We took breakfast which was western style and very good, taken in the traditional Japanese dining room which again was a worthwhile experience. The owner is super friendly, speaks good English, offers tourist attraction guidance and is obviously used to explaining how the inn worked to foreigners. Overall a very happy stay.

            Friendly owner and staff, very clean environment

            Visited during winter snow time so decided to call the owner to fetch myself since tried to walk in Nikko before in snow with luggage is not advise. Good point is the place is very near to Hida No Sato. For me, without luggage, I have no problem walking to station and from station after the shuttle bus time is over at 5pm even snow time. Room is big and very clean. As long can accomodate the bus and shuttle time will be all good for family traveling. If arrive before 5pm, just take the shuttle heading to Hida No Sato and stop at station 5, which is just outside the Ryokan. Hope this helps

            The ryokan was about 10 minutes away from the train station and center of town, but there is a bus that takes you right at the bottom of the ryokan's hill. They have electric bicycle for rent at the ryokan which made a great way to explore the town. The bath was clean and big, with one family bath as option.

            Even the hotel is outside the city by walking around 15-20 minutes, but you will enjoy the room, the bath and the food which are Japan authentic. The ryokan make you feel relaxation. It is proper for a person who would like to escape the crowd.

            comfortable, price

            nice place to get a japnaese ryokan experience for relatively cheap price...shared bath but my room had a private toilet and sink...very comfortable and the staff were nice...meal plans are available for about 3000 yen more (if you want the complete ryokan experience)...it's a bit far from the station though about 30 minutes by walking...but it is close to the main attraction hida no sato village...and there are buses that go there from the station from about 10 am to 5pm...if you can find something not too much more expensive, i'd find a place closer to town..since i don't think most of the ryokans in the lower price range would differ too much from one another...pretty good place though if you don't mind the distance from the station

            It's not a good choice in takayama”

            1. First of all, hotel is abt 2km away from takayama station, we arrive the station around 540pm, hotel said their shuttle bus need to reserve and the end time is 530pm, we have to take 2 taxi to hotel the fee is 2000yen. 2. Hotel dinner end at 5:00pm in the afternoon, when we arrived there at 6pm, the their restarant had closed, we need to walk back to city centre to have dinner. 3. Room is not clean enough, we found stinkbug in the room. 4. In the morning, the free shuttle to station end at 10:00am, if you leave hotel after 10:00am, you need to pay the shuttle fee. So I don't think it's a good choice in takayama, next time I will stay near the bus station.

            The ryokan is located quiet far from the Takayama city but the owner is quite a nice guy to transfer us to Takayama Station even though is not there fixed schedule. Very helpful and kind. The room is quite big and really a place to relax and enjoy the serenity of the location, if you looking for a place that is quiet and near to nature. Is near to the Hida Folk Village and teddy bear cafe / museum. If you plan to walk to the Ryokan, is about 20 min away from Takayama Station. With heavy luggage, is not recommended. Another option is to keep your luggage at the station where some cafe or bus station providing some lockers services to keep your luggage for max of 3 days. With that, you can walk with you few days clothing. Overall stay was nice.

            Cleanliness, location, comfort

            The room and onsen were well-kept and clean. There were plenty of information on shuttle bus timing available as well, which helped us greatly. The hotel is located near Hida no Sato and Teddy Bear Museum. However, it is quite far away from convenience store. In comparison to hotels near Takayama station, the hotel is situated in a much quieter location with lesser attractions. It also means that the stay there is quite peaceful for us, as we had a good rest in the hotel and the onsen. Recommended.

            Great stay at Ryokan Murayama!”

            Yummy Food, Friendly Staff, Calm Atmosphere

            We had a great stay the the Ryokan Murayama. We had breakfast and dinner at the Ryokan, and it was absolutely delicious. I'd highly recommend breakfast as a yummy traditional experience at a good price. The location is slightly far from the main part of town, but it's really close to the Teddy Bear EcoLodge (if you're into that) and a short walk to the traditional folk village. Even though it's slightly out of the way, the ryokan owner is awesome and will come down to the train/bus station to pick you up, and he offers a daily shuttle down to the town in the morning. It is possible to walk to town, but getting a ride is just easier. The room is spacious and there is great wifi and tv. The forest/trees outside are beautiful, and I recommend the short walk to the folk village. Having your own private bathroom is nice, but a pricier than a shared bathroom room -- but it's worth it if you prefer privacy. I'd highly recommend Ryokan Murayama as a relaxing place to stay.

            Cozy takayama experience”

            Traditional Ryokan, budget-friendly, English speaking owner

            Nice little ryokan near the Folk Village, a bit outside of Takayama town proper (20mins walking), but it's a really nice, peaceful walk up to the inn. And, unlike the folks staying in the city, you can get amazing views of the city with the Japanese Alps as a backdrop on a clear day! That alone is worth it. The owner speaks English and is very welcoming, and the Hida beef dinner was worth the modest price. Nice little retreat for a few day stay.
