4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

not local or interesting but a great stay right at the station.....we got a expedia rate of 97 which shared with two was great.......hot baths and walking distance to everything......if there for a day or two you can walk right in off the railway platform......grocery store on main floor....well worth the money.....

It’s next to Nara JR station and bus terminal, or just 10 minutes on walk to get Kintetsu train. There are have many choices of convenience shops, supermarket and restaurants also, and around 15 minutes can reach to Nara Park by walk.

This is a good hotel in a good location. It is near the Nara JR station and in a few minutes, you can walk to the main attractions. There is a great food market on the lower level of the station. Room was nice, quite large for Japan standards and clean but basic and a little tired. Bathroom was very... More

And the staffs were very helpful and the rooms were excellent and bigger in terms of japan standard... They had a descent size bath and had Corby... More

Very positive stay. Room small, but clean. Hotel friendly, safe and efficient. Location has to be best in Nara. The train tracks for the local trains to/fro Kyoto and to/fro Horiuji were steps away and seemingly always leaving again in ten or twenty minutes. Temples in Nara and Horiuji were highlights of my Shinkasen tour out of Tokyo. Given the... More

I stayed here with my family, short walk from all the attractions in Nara and 1 min from the train and bus station. 5 persons for 4 nights (3kids) cost only about 50.000yen with out breakfast, bakery is in the station. Looking forward to come here again sometimes.

Hotel located beside jr station, which is very helpful for travelers. Staff are friendly, polite and helpful. Twin bad rooms enough to hold 3 peoples so no need to get extra bed. Out side the hotel you can just go straight and find many cafe/bar.

This is my second stay in this hotel. The first time was 2012. The hotel is right next to the JR railroad station and is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. It is also within walking to the Naramachi district which has many traditional Japanese houses. The bus to Osaka airport stops near the hotel so airport transport... More

You literally leave the gates of the JR train station and the entrance to the hotel is on the platform right outside the train station. Even though we were that close to the station, I don't recall ever hearing the trains. The room was bigger than most Japanese hotel rooms. Very happy with the convenience of the location of the...
