Recent guest reviews

This hotel was our first place to stay in our trip. The room was so spacious to fill with 4 single beds and it was very good view with good nature. Specially the staffs are very kinds and good at english. We were in trouble with rent car because of heavy snow. The staffs gave big help to change rent car and bring us to rent office. From the first and the end, they helped all proceed and gave all convenience. Because of them, we could enjoy and finish our trip very safe without big trouble. Especially we give thanks to Mr.Takashi Itagaki. We strongly recommend specially for foreigners this hotel.

We stayed here for 2 night stop in mid November and although a little out of town the shuttle bus was an added extra provided for guests.The rooms were huge and spotlessly clean, with sitting chairs and a lounge. We had a great view over the valley and the breakfast was plentiful and we had various dishes to choose from, The service was friendly and the Onsen was spectacular. We were there when the women were on the 7th floor, so to be able to lie in the hot springs and look over the town was fabulous. A really great aspect of Japanese culture. A good hotel for a stop over.

This hotel was selected for a group tour. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Japanese and Western breakfasts are served in different restaurants, and the Western buffet breakfast has a very nice selection. Wifi works well in the room. The onsen was a disappointment as I expected more scenic views in a mountain setting.

This was a special hotel. The Onsen (Spa) was extra special here. There is a men’s and women’s spa area as you bath naked. The hotel alternate the men’s and women’s spa’s to give both genders a change of facilities. Having said that both spa areas have superb facilities. You have to remove your shoes before entering the spa area, and after your spa there is a bar area which offers bar meals and alcoholic drinks. Check out the ice cream vending machine. The hotel spas also have infinity hot pools to look out over the valley- super relaxing.

This is depressing. A fantastic location great lobby and rooms that are no better than tourist class. Quiet. Plastic bathrooms. No separate shower. Very clean. Beds are not comfortable and need to be replaced

The hotel is ok if you just need a clean and calm room and a roof over the head. Never go to that hotel directly after a ryokan! The Associa has the charm of a mass tourism hotel in Rimini. It has to be said - You can enjoy a nice view from your room down to Takayama. Do not take dinner in the hotel – invest some time and go to town.

Beautiful hotel! The room is really big, clean and comfortable. Visit the "onsen". It's really beautiful and relaxing. Enjoy the environment and view. Breakfast is good. Oriental and ocidental choices. Wi-fi works well.

The view from hotsprings and our room (see photo)was wonderful. There is a small infinity hotspring pool overlooking the view, could have taken some photos to show when nobody's around, but for the notice forbidding pictures or video. The staff is most helpful and polite. The access to the town was not a problem as we rented a car from Nagoya airport. However, our flight from HK was delayed for 5 hours. Didn't realise the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway leading to Takayama is closed at weekdays after 8 pm!! Needed to ask for directions from locals with a physical map. Arrived hotel past 1 am. The hotspring water temperature for both nights was not as hot compared to usual experience.

Rooms are a great size and nicely furnished. We ate in house on both nights and the choices of Japanese and Western food were good, promptly served. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. The Onsen was very pleasant. The souvenir shop was particularly well stocked.

Stayed there for only one night, love the view, serenity, atmosphere and crisp air. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Our breakfast were good. Location is on top of a mountain and it's somewhat inconvenient going to town but the breathtaking view is something to look forward to.
