We stayed for 3 nights over the spring festival in Takayama. Although we started looking 4-5 months ahead for a room, this was the only place I could find with an opening, so I was apprehensive about it being worth the cost. However, we ended up really enjoying our stay there. It is very close to the train station, which is great since we easily got there with our bags and the town is quite small so it's not a problem to walk from the station area anywhere else. We were on the 5th floor in a large room. When you get there, the hotel staff has you pick out a yukata (a light kimono) and encourages you to wear it around the hotel, such as to dinner. It was a little goofy to be dressed up like that but fun at the same time. Perhaps because of this sort of thing, there were a lot of foreigners there. I think it is fair to say they cater to the Gaijin clientele. That's not a bad thing though as a more traditional place would be more intimidating - my husband, who had never been to Japan before, especially liked it. The meals were very good and plentiful - the Japanese breakfast was very good. They serve a lot of the local beef and have local beer and sake (though alcohol is not included up front). They also have public and private baths - we tried the private (it is a small additional fee) and liked it. It is true that the cost was perhaps a bit high for the level of amenities - the decor, though traditional, was a bit lower in quality and the futons were not as nice or as comfortable as I have had at hotels in this price range in Japan in the past. Nonetheless we enjoyed the experience overall and would recommend it to those who are looking for a relaxed introduction to the ryokan experience.
