A mix of both traditional and western-style
We enjoyed staying in a hotel that offered a mix of both traditional Japanese and Western-style experiences. The service was excellent and we enjoyed eating at both the Japanese and sushi restaurant in the hotel. The location was in walking distance from everything. Although the hotel is a little outdated, it was extremely clean. Overall, we really loved the hotel and highly recommend it to others.

Very Good8.0
Nice but expensive ryokan experience in a hotel
Hotel is very nice overall. Service is excellent. It's not a real traditional type of ryokan (didn't seem like the type where the imperial family would have stayed), so for a hotel, it's a bit dated feeling. However, it has almost all the aspects of a traditional high end ryokan. Onsen in the hotel itself (main hotel) is not that big, but you can also use the one across the street at their sister property. Room rate was on the high side compared with other high end ryokan in Japan.

Great ryokan in Takayama
Wonderful service. The first night we were served a formal kaiseki dinner with 12 courses. The second night we had a great sushi and sashimi dinner. The room was very comfortable. Highly recommended for a two night stay which is needed to see what Takayama has to offer

People were so nice and dinner/breakfast were also great in Japanese style. Eve though I cannot give the best score for onsen - quite old and no good external view, the rest were one of the greatest that I had visited Ryokan in Japan.

10am check-out time
Excellent hotel, located in the shopping area, very convenient. Staff knows you and very courteous. The only complaint was the check-out time - 10am which is quite early. I was plan to have breakfast then go for another round of hot spring but couldn't do so because it's time to check out already. Would be better to set the check-out time to 11am
