This hotel is in the station complex so on arrival from the train, go upstairs and walk outside. The room was average but absolutely fine. Great location. Grand reception but rooms rather pokey. Restaurants very expensive but loads around the station and nearby - there is a main street which is diagonally opposite the hotel which is full of restaurants.... More

This hotel could not be in a better location - close to shops, train station and restaurants. The staff are very nice and welcoming and the room was clean and spacious enough for our belongings. Everything was as you would expect, however the room had no hair dryer and no safe, which I expect as standard in every hotel room.

My friends and I stayed here last month. The location is right beside the Nara station so very convenient for those travelling by train. I also saw that the airport limousine bus stop is in that same area. The stop for local loop buses are in the same area too! It also has a supermarket right beside it! Close to... More

Stuck to the Nara station, this modern hotel is really clean, convenient and confortable. Rooms are wide and offer a wide sight over the city. Staff is efficient but a bit too cold. Rooms are wide and well equipped. Breakfast is offering a buffet of asian and contiental dishes. All the main attractions of Nara can be reached walking from... More

It is hard to imagine a more convenient location for a hotel in Nara. You get off the JR train from Kyoto and you walk just a hundred meters to the entrance to the hotel. Keep in mind there is another train station in Nara from another train company so make sure you are on the JR train or you... More

The Hotel Nikko Nara is next to the JR Nara train station with easy access to restaurants and shops throughout the area. The hotel is modern with well furnished rooms and excellent service. The bathroom came with a deep soaking tub and shower area to wash before entering the tub. You can also go to the nice public bath on... More

The location is a major plus- literally right next to the train station, 2 minute walk to the main shopping/eating area, 10 minute walk to the entrance of the park. The staff are very friendly and go that little extra mile. We also had dinner at the teppan restaurant which was amazing! I do think they need to update/upgrade the... More

This hotel located just connected to Nara station so it is so convenient if you come to this city by train. Hotel provide bicycle rental service (800yen per day) and from there everywhere in this city is just reachable. Don't forget to grab your bento lunch in the supermarket in the station and you are off to have picnic lunch... More

When we saw the size of the room, we asked for an upgrade. The new room was much larger, more comfortable, and had a huge bathroom. The manager misquoted the upgrade price, but honored the lower price he originally gave us. Across the street are several restaurants, including a tasty donut shop and a convenience store. The hotel is right... More
