The service at the hotel and the location were both excellent, but the property left a lot to be desired. The rooms were pretty dated, and not in a retro chic kind of way. More like a "leather slippers like my grandpa used to wear" in the room kind of way.

In Nara this hotel can be said to be far from the train station (about 15 minutes ) walking) but close to several main attractions. The rooms are small and the staff is lacking in English but doing their best to help (all of this typical of hotels in Japan) . The room has an electric kettle, hairdryer and free... More

This is a typical Japanese style hotel. The rooms, beds and bathrooms are smaller, but still clean. If you have younger children, they can stay for free in the adults bed. Or just bring a sleeping back and let them camp out on the ground! The place is very convenient to the major temples and shrines and of course the... More

This is a great hotel to explore the sights of Nara. We stayed for 2 nights in April 2013 and were somewhat dubious having read previous reviews but it fitted the bill perfectly. The hotel is located in the old, historic district of Nara, a short taxi ride (about 10mins; Y1000 approx.) from the main JR Nara Station. The Kintetsu... More

Its a small neat hotel ideal for short stays.The rooms are small and bathrooms smaller...if you are above six feet....the loo use could be a problem. Has free wifi and all basic amenities in the room. Comfortable stay, recommended... More

I stayed here for five nights while on a business trip. Service was friendly and helpful at the front desk and in the restaurant. The included Japanese/Western buffet breakfast was good and food items were replaced by the staff often. However, the bedrooms are very small. There was barely room for the bed and except for a few clothes hangers... More

Very safe location - probably this can be said for most locations in the charming city of Nara. Hotel in easy walking distance from Nara Park and the retail area. The rooms are very small and the bathroom even smaller. Beds adequate but firm pillows hard! Breakfast - limited selection. Nicely presented breakfast room with special private areas for small...

Nice hotel in a safe area; nothing fancy but a good place to spend the night. Hotel is about a 12 minute walk from the JR Nara Station; a 5 minute walk to Nara Park (where the wild deer & all the Unesco World Heritage Sites are); and you will pass numerous shopping & dining opportunities in between the train...

First, the location is fantastic if you want to see the temples and shrines in Nara Park or even stroll down the pedestrian shopping streets and a 15 minute walk to the Todaiji Temple. Service was excellent. There was always someone behind the desk who spoke English. The room was average in size for Japanese hotels, the bathroom larger than... More
