We were told that we would have a double room at this hotel and when we came to check in were told that there were no double rooms available in the whole hotel. We insisted that they investigate this and eventually they managed to find us a double room! The way in which we were treated by the first person we spoke to on the desk was very unprofessional. The breakfast was fine with both western and Japanese options. It gets quite crowded as this hotel is used by a lot of tour groups.

We stayed here for our two nights in Takayama. Very convenient to railway station ( 5 minutes ) and about 15 minutes from old town. Hotel rooms comfortable. Jacuzzi available although we did not use. Hotel staff friendly and will recommend restaurants and book them. Breakfast a mixture of Japanese and Western buffet. Plenty to eat.

Stayed here on an organised tour for one night. Rooms and bathroom were of a good size and had all facilities required. Food was basically bar meals but very good quality - many side dishes and drinks all costing 500 yen and main courses being very reasonable. The staff were outstanding both at dinner and breakfast and worked so hard. Centrally situated. Bag pipe cafe not far from Red Bridge excellent for snacks

Not a bad hotel at all. Rooms are very comfortable and beds are just right. Not a bad location, Close to bus station and not far from old down town. The staff were great and the hotel's restaurant was pretty good. I would recommend.

Overall, very comfortable accomodation in well appointed rooms. Staff are generally friendly and helpful. Excellent wifi. Breakfast options includes western style options with lots of fresh fruit. The hotel is very close to the bus and train station as well as the main walking street to the famous “old town” area.

I'm still staying at this hotel while writing this review. Amazing and friendly front office and check-in was a breeze! The deluxe twin room was well appropriated and clean. Room is bigger than your usual Japanese room. From the last review, the reviewer said that the room is "tired" but I don't find it so. Very convenient location which is 5 minutes walk to the train station. Lots of eateries around and took us just ten minutes to reach the old town. If you are driving, there's electronic parking within the hotel compound. On level 2, there's a spa that doubles up like an onsen.

We travelled to Takayama to do a cycling tour . The hotel is very convenient to the station but rooms were tired and breakfast/dining area terrible. Unfortunately we ate here for dinner one night. There was very little choice and the meals were average at best. Breakfast was included and luckily we arrived early (before the advertised opening time) Half an hour later it was packed with people standing waiting for tables. Breakfast choice was limited. We loved the area and location of hotel but I am sure there must be better places to stay. The worst place we stayed during our 3 weeks in Japan.

A really great hotel for the price which exceeded expectations. Just a 2 minute walk from the train station and bus links. The main part of the town is only 10 minutes or so away, with some great restaurants even closer. Our room was very clean and modern, felt like it had been recently renovated. Staff were very polite and helpful. Good selection of food available for breakfast, with both Japanese and western options. Free fast wifi throughout the hotel. A nice quiet location with comfortable beds for a good nights sleep.

Stayed here amid the snow and subsequent ice. Such a well located hotel. Five minute walk from train station. Comfortable room with great onsen. Adequate western breakfast, reasonable English spoken. Very helpful staff.

It is a stone throw away from JR station. It is also close to Nouhibus station and Family Mart. BW is a good starting point for all trips from Takayama. The rooms are smaller, but clean and comfortable. There is a spa that's free for guests.
