Modern and well-located

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 31, 2013

This is a modern Western style hotel in a convenient location right across the road from the train station. Our room here was clean and comfortable but, as so often in Japan, very small. If you want to unpack your suitcase you will find nowhere much to store the contents, yet living out of it is difficult when there's nowhere to lay it flat on the floor.

But apart from that there's little to complain about here and despite the small floor area everything you need for your stay is provided, including toiletries in the bathroom, hair dryer, robes and slippers, a TV etc. There’s no wi-fi though, but there are a couple of PCs in the lobby which you can use (I’m not sure if there’s a charge for these as we had our hired mobile wi-fi spot).

Breakfast is included and is a choice of Japanese or Western style. We copped out and opted for Western, having had very traditional Japanese ones the previous two mornings in Kyoto. Whichever you choose it will be brought to you in one go on a large tray. On the first day I was disappointed to find that although the cook here has the all too rare ability to make scrambled eggs (nice and runny not set firm), they were cold by the time they reached me. The second morning was better and I quite enjoyed my breakfast. Having said that, it was quite small for what they charge, so if you haven’t pre-booked and paid for breakfast as we had, you might prefer to look elsewhere.

There are a couple of useful convenience stores just a few doors away. We shopped for sake one evening to drink in our room, as there were no nearby bars and the hotel didn’t have one. It seemed the restaurant was closed in the evenings too, despite being advertised as serving dinner, though that wasn’t a problem for us as we preferred to eat elsewhere.

As soon as we had checked in and left our bags we headed out again to explore Takayama

Directions: Cross the road outside the station, turn right and the hotel is a short distance along
