Recent guest reviews

nice rooms and clean very good view staff very friendly and polite and efficient plenty hot water and good water pressure for showering. For breakfast i had cold egg and chips (fries) again no baked beans,evening meal was so-so not good .Money exchange machine in the lobby >The water in all of Japan is safe to drink straight from the tap.

Large hotel out of Takayama so a bit isolated, shuttle bus into Town but final return journey is 8.30 so abit early. Hotel a few different priced restaurants (to suit your pocket) - recommend the evening buffet - breakfast good too. Didnt try the onsen (but heard it was good), View over valley lovely. Some might find Hotels too impersonal - but it had all you wanted.

The room was clean and had all of the amenities that one could want.And once again(as we have found to be true of all our stays in Japan),the front desk and staff go out of their way to help you out. Even though it is located a bit out of town,it is only a short taxi ride or hotel shuttle service to town.I expected a hotel this large to be crowded and impersonal, but found it the complete opposite. And the onsen was fantastic(several choices and not crowded.

On Saga's tour "Land of the Rising Sun" A tour full of interest and fascination, The Associa Takayama Resort Is a great hotel of the smarter sort. Dinner (included) exquisite food, Japanese Served by staff anxious to please, Artistically presented sushi, I just looked. Wonderful Hika beef which I cooked On a hot platter then boiled beef Stewed in a pot on the table (plus some leaf). Japan has raised food above mere subsistence To become the triumph of style over substance, An art form indulged in by their insistence. We're told Japanese food is subtle But I think this notion needs a rebuttal. Apart from salty umami to savour I don't think this has very much flavour. Monosodium glutamate and sodium chloride Aren't fattening, or even food - you decide. To me, sushi really isn't that nice It has all the appeal of cold wet rice. Breakfast is international buffet I had bacon and chips plus passable coffee. The breakfast room's great view. When the Sun shines No one can see it - they draw all the blinds. The walking tour of the town Takayama (It's not tacky at all) - could not have been calmer. Flat walking, unhurried and peaceful, This town's attractive, friendly and beautiful. After festival floats, market, government building, We stayed on in town, time easily filled in. Lunch at Salute- very good crab pasta, And an excellent Hika beef pizza. Service was pleasant, swift and efficient, The quality high, quantity more than sufficient. The Takayama museum of history and art Is superbly presented, one thing apart - And that is the injunction "no picture". " No flash" would be an accectable stricture. We returned to the Associa by shuttle bus. It runs every hour with little fuss. However, on arrival back at the hotel, Coincided with mass check-in - lift hell! Hundreds of people and only two lifts So I used common sense, (one of my gifts), I used the other building's lifts to the second floor Crossed over, took the lift down then up more. To take a hot mineral bath there's co-option But, of course, I didn't, as clothing's not an option.

Good hotel away from the centre of Takayama but shuttle available. Rooms spacious, comfotable bed and great shower. Room had a view towards the alps. Hotel had a free onsen. Outside section of onsen several varying hot pools and great views. Evening meal buffet with a choice mainly of Japanese/Chinese food with good selection of beef, pork, chicken. Breakfast good.

Helpful staff, nice room, and a good breakfast. The onsen is very nice with indoor and outdoor pools that have views overlooking Takayama. I couldn't tell if the hotel was dated or if the muted décor was part of the relaxing atmosphere; nevertheless, both the room and common areas were fresh and spotless.

This is a very nice hotel/resort with spacious rooms, attentive staff and good food. Be sure to try the hot baths, they are a treat not to be missed. Only negative located on outskirts of town; however, there is a shuttle bus.

This is a beautiful property with great mountain views. Spacious rooms and helpful staff at the registration desk. Breakfast buffet had many god choices and well laid out . I wish we could have stayed longer.

Huge (compared to other Japanese hotels) rooms with amazing mountain view. Friendly and helpful personal. It was only the place we found to stay in during the festival and it was best possible hotel indeed.

We stayed here overnight with a group and had diner (very good) and breakfast. The room was very spacious and comfortable, with a very nice japanese style sitting area. To really enjoy the hotel it would be better to stay longer.
