The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the train station, where a supermarket is also conveniently located. The room we got was a tiny, Japanese style room, with tatami floors, bedding on the floor, a small table, two "cheater" chairs (legless chairs, used on tatami floors), small flat screen TV, and good AC, but no closet space. There... More

Nara Komachi Guest House is very clean, fresh, and modern just the way we love it and feel like home. Mr Kazuhiko and assistants are extremely nice, polite, and helpful. They provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towel, coffee, tea. They really know how to make guests to feel comfortable and welcome. Perfect location as it is in walking distance to... More

Kazuhiko and his two attractive assistants were great at helping out with bus and train schedules. Very knowledgeable. The place was very clean. Walking distance from JR train station. Has a small but well appointed kitchen, but Nara had so many good eateries that we only used it to cut fruit and make tea. Internet worked well. Laundromat is nearby.... More

Really love this guesthouse. Everything are in order and very neat. Their facilities are too complete for guesthouse. Staying at Nara Komachi makes you feel that you are staying at your family's home. So homey!! Very close to JR Nara Komachi. No doubt at all to offer this guesthouse to my colleague when visiting Japan.

I really enjoyed this peaceful guesthouse. It is very close to Nara Train Station and you fell very welcome just arrived. You can use the kitchen, where, while sipping some tea, make friends. Small but confortable room, very good shower and wi-Fi/compuser acess.

We had been almost entirely on futons for our trip, and the bunk beds were a delightful novelty. The room was compact but well planned, and the ensuite was lovely. The stairs were quite narrow, so I didn't complain when the very kind owners offered to carry my cases up and down them. The people are delightful, and both train... More

Guest House Nara Komachi is conveniently next to the station and is within 20 minutes walking of Nara Park. The owners are really lovely and welcoming people; at check-in they included information about the Nara area and explained the amenities of the guest house. In the lobby there are computers (although there is wifi in the room so internet is... More

Located handily to Nara Station and the shops but well off the main road. Its extremely well organised and run by the host Kazu. There are bikes for hire cheaply, a place to cook, internet, gaming. The rooms are smallish but not unusual for Japan, clean modern and essentially comfortable. The service is outstanding with the staff ever eager to... More

We stayed 2 nights in a bunkbed room as a family. It's not big, but spotlessly clean and has the basics: beds, table, chairs, toilet and shower. Plenty of hot water, and really nice (Shisheido) soap etc. The wi-fi in the room is also good. There is no kettle or fridge in the room, but quests can use the facilities... More
