A great option to stay in Nara. Super close to Nara Station and with quick access to the main street that leads to the park. Accommodation is ok for its cost and also considering Japan`s standard - besides, you are probably only go back for sleep, so I would strongly recommend this hotel. It is super clean and staff is...

Sun Hotel is just across the street from Nara Station, which is nice for those coming in from the Shinkansen line. The hotel also has a vertical parking building for those with a car (my case). They charge ¥700 for the parking lot and you have to wait a couple of minutes for the car to come down (or up).... More

Exit the JR station from the main entrance, walk about 200 hundreds meters to your right,staying on the main road and then you'll see the name of the hotel at the top of their building, on your right. So, it's close to the JR station. Starting again from the station, go straight, cross the main road, then take the first... More

Staff were very friendly and speaks English. There were lockers at the train station, so I didn't leave my luggage at the... More

We arrived too early for check in and staff very helpful in allowing us to leave our suitcases at the lobby while we went into town exploring. When we returned and checked... More

I stayed 4 nights at the Sun Hotel in Nara in February 2013. I was looking for a cheap and basic hotel while I attended a conference, and it served the purpose well. The room was small, but clean. The hotel is right next to the train lines but it was not particularly noisy. Staff were very polite and helpful.... More

Love the breakfast - lots of choice of dishes, western and eastern style. Of course I went for the japanese breakfast which is really good, tasty, warm and freshly cooked from the kitchen served by very nice and polite staff. What more can one ask for? Some of the reception staff hardly speak nor understand english but they were very... More
