This hotel is located in the west end of Nara´ s city center. Further away from Nara park with its temples, but closer to ruins of ancient Heijo palace and some "kofun" tombs. Takes 5 minutes walk to subway station and another 3 minutes to get to city/center temples area from there. I can´ t say much regarding the hotel... More

It's a good hotel, nice rooms (not very big but in Japan even rooms in houses are small!), very clean and nice sushi restaurant downstairs. No room service and very few people speak English!!! Even at the reception they can't speak English. Otherwise nice people working at the hotel...if you're able to communicate!!
