Fantastic. Lovely, friendly owner great location. NARA IS AWESOME :-). I cannot recommend this accomodation more highly. Enjoyed a 10 day stay here as I'd spent a weekend there during Hanami and got to know the owner well my Sister and nephew stayed here as well and also loved the atmosphere.

A revamped old Japanese house. This one was only a 10min walk from the JR station (which was great because we had LOADS of luggage). We were greeted with a big smile from Jun-San, the owner. Who could speak fantastic English, and taught us some Japanese (more my partner than I). He then marked on a map all the best... More

Nice B&B right next to the center of town. Room was clean and comfortable, the bathrooms western style and well maintained, small common area. The whole house seemed to be remodeled a few months ago, so nothing was worn up. Small breakfast included, also free wifi and friendly staff. 10 min walk from Nara JR and a short walk from... More

I stayed here with a friend, and found it to be very enjoyable. The owner, Nakata-san, was lovely, and made us feel right at home. The room was clean and comfortable, the bathrooms western style and well maintained, and the house was like coming home at the end of the day. Breakfast was provided by Nakata-san every morning, and he... More

We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom and toilet for one night. The lodgings were very new and comfortable, and the western-style shower/toilet was clean. About a 8 minute walk from the JR and Kintetsu stations. Fast wifi is available for free, and the owner, Jun Nakata, was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended!

If arriving by rail at Nara Station, pause briefly at the Station Information centre where the friendly ladies will point you in the right direction for this Japanese style B & B, and happily supply you with a map of Nara; they also offer the services of a free English speaking guide for touring Nara, if required (this can be...

We spent two nights at Nakata B&B. The owner immediately offered us some cold ice tea we could drink while checking in and then he told us that there was a candle festival that evening. He had maps and was very helpful in pointing out where things were and where was best to view the candle festival. The rooms were... More

Nice place overall. Looks like it was recently remodeled (bit of a lacquer smell in the rooms). Location in Nara is good - everything within walking distance (but thats just about anywhere in Nara). Bathroom and shower are really nice. Owner was a nice fellow who gave good advice on activities. The price is a little higher than others but... More

This place was an enjoyable stop on our trip to Nara. It was a welcome break from all the random hostels I was staying at. This place was clean, convenient and moderately priced. It's about a ten minute walk from the JR station. It was a straight shot and the tourism office knew exactly where it was. The location is... More

Located in a backstreet, this ryokan can be tricky to find. Out of the station, turn right and cross at the traffic lights and keep walking down a smallish street until you reach a T-intersection, where the ryokan is located. The owner is helpful (sometimes over-helpful and chatty). The common living area is pleasant with a plasma TV, CD player... More
