Best Western Hotel Takayama

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

We were here for 4 days so took the Junior Suite for a little extra room. It is all one room and about twice the size of an ordinary room. It is comfortable and well laid out. The hotel is close to the railway and bus station but a little further to the heart of the tourist action on the other side of the river but that was still only a 15 minute walk away. The staff were pleasant and helpful with good english. You can get a choice of breakfast - Japanese style or Western. Both were fine. Recommended.

Location is perfect, just 2 minutes walk from train station. Lots of eatery/restaurants nearby. Got several mini mart around also. Room is very small, no view at all. Front desk staffs don’t speak much English, a bit difficult to communicate.

The size of the room is quite spacious for Japan. I had plenty of room for 2 people, except for the washroom. The washroom felt cramped except for the bathtub. Something to note is the water pressure of the shower was not good. The higher the floor, the less water pressure there is. (I was on the top floor.) The staff were friendly and majority of them spoke English. A few had minimal English, but every tried to communicate and help you as best they could. The restaurants required reservations unless you had the breakfast package. I didn't realize this on the day I was checking out, but the staff allowed me to pay and eat breakfast in the Bijoux Cafe. The breakfast buffet was good enough to get you by. I really enjoyed the mackerel and Hida beef croquette. The check in and check out process went smoothly. The location of Best Western Takayama was only minutes away from Old Town and Takayama Station.

Great location, close to the train station, stuff was very nice, kind and helpful. Big room very well equiped, very comportable, clean, nespresso machine, coffee and tea Good breakfast, western and japanese. We didn't have time to use the spa , We had a lovely enjoyable vacation.

The Best Western is located only a few minutes walk from the train station and close to the old town. An easy walk to all the major attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel is clean and comfortable. Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated and had a view over the town. We would stay here again.Breakfast is included.

great position just 500 mts from the train station . small hotel with great friendly staff. rooms are large by Japan standards . very clean , breakfast is western style basic but ok. perfect hotel to stay for a couple of nights in this lovely little town .

Very well located near all sorts of eating places, shops and the station, in a very unassuming side street, there is nothing obvious to criticise in this modern western-style hotel. Rooms were adequate in size, the bed very comfortable and everything worked. The breakfast had all they options we'd ever need or want.

Great location about 2 mins from station. Take the east exit, walk straight across the road, up a block then can't miss it! Nice hotel, clean and certainly big enough for our family of 3! Breakfast was ok, it filled us up for the morning, I think something you have to remember is you are in an Asian country so don't expect fried eggs on toast with bacon, beans etc... Staff were very friendly and helpful. My husband had a spa later in the evening (even with the dreaded ink on his arm), no one was around so he didn't get kicked out. He also had a foot massage which he enjoyed. Overall a really nice hotel in a great location, would definitely stay here again!

Another one night stop on a rail journey. Room a little bigger than others but were clean and tidy and you could open the window. Good breakfast. $5.00 beer and wine pre dinner drinks were on offer to us that night.
