The accommodation we chose for our stay was the Hida Takayama Washington Hotel Plaza. One of its main advantages is that it is located right in front of JR Takayama Station. The location was perfect and very easy to find upon arriving in the city from Tokyo. The Hotel itself was no big deal. It had a very modest reception, however with a very helpful staff. The rooms were small, but equipped with everything you need. The decor left a little to be desired and the bathroom was very small. There was free internet in the room, which was very convenient. Another plus point, is that most of Takayama's attractions were only a few steps away.
Staying in Shirakawa-go is a highly recommended experience, even more so if you stay in one of the original houses with a Gassho-zukuri style roof, built so that snow does not accumulate on the roof. There are several to choose from and I'll tell you about the one I went to. It was called Nodaniya (number 6 in the town plan) and has a lovely view over a rice field and mountains. To add to its charm, at the entrance there is a beautiful mill. The room, like in all this type of accommodation is tatami (traditional japanese style). Yukata is supplied and they serve you tea and a sweet. The bathroom (shared as it is a family) is in traditional wooden tub hinoki (Japanese cypress wood). Breakfast and lunch are very good.
Another Hoppers hostel chain in Takayama, in the mountainous area of JAPAN. It is a perfect location to discover both this pleasant villa and surrounding area, to get you to do it in the JR train from Nagoya, the hostel is 1 minute from the train station. The rest of the chain is extremely clean, the beds are spectacular, fantastic staff, impeccable service, a good place for both travelers and backpackers who prefer a hostel to a hotel
This minshuku (traditional Japanese inn) is a good option of accommodation when visiting Takayama. It's about 15 minutes walking to the station but very close to the temple of Takayama and the old traditional houses. As all this kind of accommodation is furnished with futon and includes hot tub service. The accommodation is pretty cheap, 4350 yen and it is very nice and quiet. And breakfast and dinner are 8350 yen.
You will without a doubt enjoy this small Japanese style accommodation in the city of Takayama. We went to this place on the occasion of Takayama Matsuri, a series of day and night processions worth seeing that are the essence of a traditional festival. From the train station, the Rickshaw Inn, the place is good, it is just a 10 minute walk away. As a 1st impression, I noticed that it was a nice place. The price was good (They were the prices of 2005). We enjoyed the common areas, whose environment invited me to get cozy. We also liked the breakfast, we had it in the lounge of the Inn, to the rhythm of music of those envelopes, like those in Starbucks. I remember thinking how, unfortunately, we do not often apply that concept in our daily life and other holidays. The truth is that we loved it. It is run by a Japanese-Australian couple and is a very welcoming place. I would definitely return. Nice, with a book to read and ready to explore the city, it's worth it.
Cheap, clean, warm and well located. We made an upgrade to private deluxe that has a small table with tatami where you can read and eat, the rest of the room is small, enough if you are just staying a little bit. Pluses: they speak English very well, there is info about the area, free wifi in rooms and common areas, fully equipped kitchen.
This is definitely the best accommodation option in the area. Bathrooms have a shared hot tub and toilet. Both dinner and breakfast are included in the room price and the quality is excellent. I was able to practice my Japanese and learn traditions and dances that are performed in the minshuku.
