We had a lovely stay - we read some reviews that suggested our room would be cold or bright but it was neither. There were heaters in the room and also thick curtains. Was great to have a fully equipped kitchen in a beautiful setting.

An excellent experience
Beautiful setting in a monastery. We were greeted with tea and shown around. They staff and monks were very friendly and encouraged us to attend the morning ceremony, which we did. The bedding was Japanese futons with a soft top layer and electric blankets. Hard but acceptable. As should be expected, the monastery is old and not well insulated. The heater was running full blast trying to keep the room at 18. There are no chairs in the room but there is a cosy shared lounge and kitchen. You can make meals and breakfast. Coffee and tea are provided. The bathroom is shared. There are only two for all the guests one with toilet and sink and other with sink, shower and bath (very pretty design - this can be “reserved” for over an hour by rooms). I did have to wait quite a while on one occasion to use the toilet room while people were brushing their teeth etc

Temple Hotel Zenkoji was so much more than I could have ever expected. The staff were super attentive & welcoming, the location was central & extremely walkable, and the experience of staying inside a buddhist temple cannot be matched! Having a kitchen and private soaking tub was an added bonus. The monk that was staying for a few days even led a ceremony, and there are more activities within the hotel itself. I woke up every morning in disbelief where I was. While I've been to Japan many times, this was one of the most memorable experiences.

Vacation in Japan
Very unique experience for sure. We stayed during Autumn festival so the rooms with the private bathroom and garden were already booked. But our room was great as well, bedding is warm and comfortable. Sleeping on the floor, no TV or tables. There is A/C, power outlets and wifi though in the room. We didn't have problems using shared bathroom and shower, which you have to sign up for. We explored the hidden passage under the temple. And enjoyed the Singing Bowl experience. Temple interior is gorgeous and we could see it as much and often as we wanted since our room was just a door apart from it. Personnel was nice, friendly and helpful. It's a bit too pricey but it probably was because of the holiday.

6/10 Good

Certainly unique in temple setting. I stayed two nights and there was no service in the room the whole period. I would have appreciated the option of a chair, as well as sitting in the floor. I clearly had not appreciated what the experience would be like.

Quiet and calm setting, relaxing place to stay. Small but adequate kitchen, bath, and sitting areas. My preference was to use the local sentou for bathing, Spa House Yutopia, 5 min walk. Monday -Wed are quite in Takayama, but on weekends the old part of town comes to life. Takayama is walkable from Zenko-ji. Overall, a great place to stay.

8/10 Very good

We had one of the 2 rooms at the very front of the building, which unfortunately was very loud in the early morning due to traffic and generally people walking past/visiting the temple. The other issue was that there was a large group staying in the other rooms and as our room door was at the entrance hall, upon leaving they were very loud and even blocked our door with their suitcases and bags so we couldn’t get out. Not the temples fault, but maybe a good idea to tell the other guests there is a room directly aside this area before they check in and out? Having said all of this, it’s genuinely a privilege to stay here. The room looked directly at the temple steps once you slid back the doors, the staff were great and the shared facilities were 5 star. If you get get a garden room do it. Still a great stay, but a bit more detail needed if you’re at the front 2 rooms.
