Ideal secluded Onsen(natural hot spring bath) Ryokan(traditional Japanese style hotel) in Hida-Takayama Japan *Iiyama proudly offers a secluded ryokan experience limited to 15 guest rooms. We provide various interior design spaces. The room with Private Garden Hot spring Bath may attract *The spring water gushes from 1200m underground and it's a sodium hydrogen carbonate spring. If you touch your skin in the spring, you will feel a smooth silky texture. It is almost like a rich beauty serum. *The local Hida beef is famous for its marbling pattern but has no extra fat, and its texture is so soft it almost melts in your mouth. *The architecture of Iiyama features Japanese famous woods such as Jjindai keyaki Japanese Zelkova, Jindai sugi Japanese Cedar and Yoshino sugi Japanese Cedar. A good example of this is a Gassho-style lobby that uses a huge keyaki tree whose diameter reaches one meter. It is said that trees have a natural relaxing "fluctuation effect" like breeze and sunlight.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful experience here. It was a little like stepping through a time warp, as the place felt so old, set off by a magical traditional garden and koi pond. We were looked after by the wonderful Emireh throughout our three night stay. She showed us to a ground floor “suite”, with western beds, and a separate dining area (I’m wondering if Japanese guests get their meals here, but westerners are sent to the tiny solo dining cubicles so that they don’t have to sit on the floor?). There were two bathrooms (separate wash basin, separate toilet cubicle and separate shower, and wooden bath cubicle). Tatami mats, so no shoes inside the ryokan. We had a private hot spring bath on the little verandah of our rooms. We loved it and made full use. In the dining area was a mini fridge and a hot water unit for making tea. Each day, the staff would leave a couple of delicious biscuits of various types, individually wrapped, on our table. The chef made a good attempt at vegetarian food and I particularly enjoyed my vegetarian hotpot while my husband cooked his beef on a mini grill during our kaiseki dinner. Fabulous. The location is not central (3-4 kms from the centre of Takayama) but it is very peaceful and actually easy to walk into town as it is flat all the way. The ryokan provides transport into and from town but you do have to book a time slot. Taxis are few and far between on Sundays in Takayama. Unfortunately there is no laundry service, but there is a laundromat about 5 minutes walk away, which we used. It’s opposite a convenience store. I left a couple of things in the room safe after we checked out. The staff called our travel agent in Australia, who called me while we were en route to Kamikochi. I asked the taxi driver to turn back, and we noticed the lovely young guy who acted as concierge/luggage handler/doorman was waiting at the top of the street. When he saw us turn into the street, he ran inside and was back at the kerb with my wallet on a tray, as we pulled up. Mind blowing service! We would both love to stay here again.

This is our 3rd time staying in a ryokan and it lived up to the others we have stayed in. Not located in the CBD of Tayakama but they have a free shuttle bus from the railway station. The service from arrival to departure was excellent. We had booked a room with a private garden and onsen which I would totally recommend if the budget allows. As we were able enjoy the onsen while it was snowing and enjoying a glass of wine. Breakfast and dinner was included and we picked Japanese breakfast and first night Haida beef and second night seafood. All meals where presented and quality was excellent as seafood was lobster and the Haida beef. We are Australian and it was was best beef we have every eaten. Would totally recommend

I have no other ryokan onsen places to compare this to, but this place was simply outstanding. Only 15 rooms. Ours had our own private onsen on the porch with continuously flowing hot spring water; had no need to use the larger communal hotel onsens. They give you slippers and kimonos to wear to meals and pajamas. Dinner was a 12 course Kaiseki gourmet extravaganza with at least 25 different items, breakfast only 15 items, presented in our own private dining room. The room had a downstairs and upstairs, each fairly large, with living room and bathroom, meticulously clean. The staff was lovely, gracious, and helpful.
The only downside is the ryokan is on the outskirts of town, a 10 min free van ride to the train station. However, this didn’t really matter in Takayama, which is worth probably a half day visit, the rest of the time spent relaxing, soaking, and eating.

Excellent ryokan with lovely staff. Having now stayed at 2 other ryokans I can definitely say with confidence that this was the best by far. Large room with separate bedroom. Fridge, kettle, wet room/bath with masses of boiling water plus our own onsen.
Food is kaiseki which I found challenging but we had recognisable fish and Hida beef plus western breakfast on 2nd morning.

We stayed one night each in Hakone and Takayama ryokans. They were both priced about the same and both were good, but we had a much more pleasant and enjoyable stay at Hanaougi Bettei Iiyama. Our experience, including the overall service, dining, private onsen, transportation, etc. was better there and we loved our host Asahi, who was attentive and friendly. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

My family and I stayed at the Hanaougi Bettei earlier this month in Takayama. The property is a retro ryokan that is staffed by friendly and professional personnel who created a unique and personal level of service. From the moment we arrived, the staff greeted us outside and accompanied us into the hotel/ryokan. We were attended to during our stay by Mami and her assistant who was in training. We cannot say enough great things about the level of service at this property. We stayed in a traditional Japanese room that was comfortable and accommodating, with an open sleeping and living areas, one bath, and two bathrooms. The room had tatami floors. For breakfast and dinner, we ate in an assigned room, where Mami served delicious and unique Japanese fare, all of which we enjoyed immensely. The onsen at the property was wonderful and relaxing. The ryokan evokes a sense of a traditional Japanese inn or home from the 1950-60s, with rotary dial phones and wood throughout. The staff was attentive and friendly and communicated with us well in English. I highly recommend this property. We were reluctant to leave after having been treated so well.

The room was a suite with ensuite private onsen, and it was very nice, the dressing room, waiting room, washroom. I felt the ensuite private onsen was just a tad lacking in the set up; little things such as the decor and atmosphere, the feel of the tub, the texture of the wood. (that said, the lobby, and building, as an interesting architecture as it is based off the old, big farm houses i think, large timber beams with no nails)The food was of good standard, especially the hida beef entree, which was fantastic. Other food items, some were nice but not outstanding, and there were some pretty good ones like the shimeiji mushroom teapot soup, and the grilled yellowtail. Overall a good dinner was served, but perhaps I have been pampered at other excellent ryokans, I felt the dinner here lacked slightly in the sense of not being outstanding enough.

Service was also a little inconsistent; 2 of the male staff were very helpful, on-point, and enthusiastic, but one of the female staff seemed a little curt by good japanese ryokan standards. I would also echo what another reviewer mentioned, there is a lack of a homely, welcoming feel. Not that they aren't good, but the really good ryokans can make you feel right at home, and very attentive to your minute personal details.

you can also rent an bigger rotenburo style private onsen, good enough for 2 persons and a little tight for 3 (you would have to have a lot of contact with 3 persons). It is nice, but not quite worth it in my opinion. Either make do with ensuite private onsen and squeeze in the tub, or, just use the public baths. Their onsen water seems to have very high mineral content, and have the soapy feel of salty/alkaline water. I thought it was quite invigorating and the skin felt very rejuvenated after the baths, so plus points there.

There is no wifi provided in rooms, and free wifi is only provided at the lobby. Fortunately for me, I was in a ground floor room very near the lobby, so I could use the wifi, no problems. Not sure if other rooms will have wifi signal.

Finally, the location can give you a slight issue, as it is not near to the old town, which you are likely to want to visit. I am giving 4 stars here, although I feel it isn't as deserving of 4 stars as some other ryokans at this price point; but it isn't quite as lacklustre as a 3 stars yet. I do think for the price, you can get something else better.

I had decided to stay in a ryokan in a relatively small town, and Takayama is a beautiful, quaint place in the Japanese Alps with much edo-style architecture. I had called 2 days before to confirm my reservation for ONE person since I was asked how many and what gender.
I took the very convenient shuttle just minutes after arrival of the 2:30 train. I presented my passport and a bellperson showed me to my room. The building itself is Japanese style though it appeared to be new construction. My room was, by far, the largest I had seen in Japan-much larger than the other two ryokans I stayed in Nara and Kyoto. An entry with a sink and separate “booths” for shower and toilet led to a large living area with low chairs and a table for four. Sliding screens led to the bedroom area with a small table and chairs and two queen sized futons about 2.5 feet in height from the tatami mats. Before leaving for town, I was shown the little room where I would take meals and told that I would eat at 6 PM. I was told that that was the only time available; although, I would have liked 7 PM better.
There is a shuttle with a regular, published schedule in the morning and id/late afternoon. Getting into town at other times by shuttle is dependent on factors unclear to me, so I took a taxi (1100 Yen) to explore. Bicycles can be rented in town and it’s a 20-minute walk .
I returned and showered for dinner. The shower, toiletries, A/C, noise, and light, and available outlets are more than adequate. There’s a mini bar/fridge with adequate personal space and the customary tea making supplies. There is a TV and two other machines that made noise. I had to call and ask what they were and was told that they are “air filters.” Apparently, this is what they use to make a room “non-smoking.” There is NO in room internet, and the free” wi-fi downstairs in the lobby is not much better than none at all. The dinner was the usual, elegant 11-course delight that featured grilled seafood, sushi, sashimi and other goodies. My dinner was great and the service fast through the first 7-8 courses when, suddenly, with 4 courses remaining, the service just stopped. After calling and receiving no answer from reception, I walked out and yelled, “hello.” No one was there and the place seemed empty. I walked downstairs and finally found someone to bring the remainder of my meal to my room. Inexplicable.
At just about this moment I had onset of a respiratory infection. In spite of the medicines I had brought with me, I did not sleep and at 0800, a half hour before the appointed time, I called to cancel my breakfast and I love Japanese breakfasts. The next day, the staff was very helpful in locating a pharmacy to buy an albuterol inhaler, but like the US though it’s the safest drug on the planet, it requires a prescription. When I returned from the most charming town, The desk clerk asked me if I wanted dinner at 6 or at 7 PM. Tonight I had a choice. As I was trying to communicate, a young Japanese couple entered and lit up in the middle of the lobby-apparently this was OK. The dinner was fabulous and in spite of being sick, I ate almost everything. The meal featured a seafood hot pot and different items for the previous night, but as I had requested, no red meat. I had no appetite the next morning so, again, I canceled breakfast. Since I was leaving by rail later that morning, I asked if they could prepare a small bento box. They either didn’t understand or they ignored me because nothing materialized.
The checkout was unexpectedly ugly. I was traveling alone; I made a res for one, entered by myself, and had no one else in my room. On my bill, I noticed two identical charges, each day, for 24000 Yen and some tax and service. The desk clerk told me that each charge was a person occupying the room so I was being charged for a room, breakfast, and dinner for two people. A manager was summoned who explained that their minimum was two people and that had they known, I wouldn’t have been able to stay. I recounted the phone conversation and the fact that I walked in by myself, presented one passport, and never had any plan to have a roomie. As I waited for the hour-long consultation, I had been trying to access the lobby wi-fi. They set and reset it, but it just didn’t work.
I was too fatigued to argue with the manager (who was the only person I encountered in 3 days who spoke passable English), but he deducted 8400 Yen for each day for the meals for the second person. The meals are an often predominant cost in a ryokan; the staff had simply ignored the issue as they did with all the issues I had-due to a language barrier or indifference. But, please don’t nod at me as if you understand when you do not.
There’s no excuse for no wi-fi. I happened to need it because I have a close relative who’s sick. In a place costing > $350/night, there’s ,again, no excuse. Mext, if you advertise on English-speaking websites, in English, then please at least provide some written instructions on the operation of equipment in the room and direction on a simple page in English. The two previous ryokans that I stayed did a much better job at this. The staff at this place was kind and courteous; they just could not communicate and didn’t expend much effort trying. Several times I offered a Google Translate translation of something I wanted to say, and each time the person nodded like I was from another planet.
I am a very experienced traveler, and I very much respect the customs and culture of the place I am visiting. I always try, at least, to learn enough words to fulfill basic requests. I booked this place, in English, on a US website (that advertised the place as “non-smoking.” The manager actually chastised me for booking for one person! Bottom line: Don’t go here unless you speak Japanese or are with someone who does. Ryokan Bettei, first, get wi-fi everywhere in your hotel. It’s worldwide standard these days. Second, make more of an effort at communicating with your foreign guests-guests you pay travel websites to market and book your facility. Third, how can you allow smoking in a beautiful, revered accommodation when It adversely affects the health of other guests. Disability and death from second hand smoke has been known since way before the discovery of the internet.

A very traditional ryokan, very clean and quiet. Staff were very helpful and friendly. They tried to accommodate our miscellaneous requests like shuttle bus and luggage arrangements. The room was large and very clean. We enjoyed the public onsen and we could feel the water was full of minerals. Everything was well equipped (towels, comb, etc.) in the public bathroom. Food was excellent and we enjoyed hida beef very much.

The only thing could be improved is about the meals. We found each meal was served in a bit of rush while we were still having a dish, the next one or two dishes arrived. Other than this, everything was perfect!
