2/10 Poor

This was a special anniversary trip for me and my wife and we wanted to select a hotel with an in room onsen so that we could onsen together. So we decided to splurge on this hotel and booked the following room: Japanese Style Semi Open Air Bath The pictures made it look like there is an onsen in the room so that’s why we booked this place which was 6 times more expensive than a nearby equivalent hotel. However the first room we were offered when we checked in clearly was a bath tub not an onsen. After showing the check in person the pictures on the web site, we were then offered a second room which had a bath which was smaller version of what was in the booking page picture but again not an onsen, only regular water and was told that it only looked like an onsen for decorative purposes. We felt pretty deceived by the booking pictures as it made it look like there was an onsen in the room and this is not uncommon in Japan. This really ruined our anniversary, and put a damper on our stay in Takayama. So in summary beware if you want a private onsen in your room this place does not offer it.

A lifetime experience indeed.
It is definitely a memorable and a lifetime experience for a non-Japanese to stay in this exclusive ryokan. Onsen was a plesant expefience as well. The attention to detail and our preferences for food at dinner and breakfast. Staff was very helpful to help locate and return our lost sake. Thank you!!! We didn't know there was a outer coat in the cupboard and got a bit cold running to the onsen.
