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...

I had a one night stay at this hotel in April 2014. Modern hotel just beside of JR Nara station. It was very easy to go to the hotel from the station. Personnel was very friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable and clean. Size quite small, but was enough for me. Nara Park is a bit far by walking,... More

I live here with my family in our vacation. Only 1 night but the service was excellent. My husband forgot to took the key out from the room and the staff were helpfully and fastly help us to open our room with their master key with all smiles on her face. breakfast was typically nice. The location is just a... More

This hotel is connected to the JR train station complex. You can easily view the hotel as the train approaches the train station. A walkway connects the second floor entrance of the hotel to the station, so you don't have to deal with the pedestrian traffic below. Next to the hotel on the first floor is a grocery store that...

Wonderful to walk out of the train, only to realise you are at your hotel already. Great location with just a five minutes walk to the city center. Good breakfast. Large rooms with a luxurious touch and a nice indoor onsen.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel from April19th-28th. We got a room on the 9th floor (no smoking). The weather outside was nice and cool but, as others have said, the room was hot and uncomfortable. We tried to turn on the aircon, but nothing happened. then, we went to complain to the front desk. The woman we... More

As a first time visitor to Nara and Japan, with almost no Japanese language, this was an important stay for us. The staff were very helpful with hiring push bikes and ringing ahead to our next stay - quite small guesthouse in a small place in Kyushu - so we were reassured that all would be well when we got...

Yes, the location is wonderful, and the lobby area looks nice, but that was the end of the good impression! The room was very basic and you could not open the window at all.( In all the other hotels, you can open it enough to get fresh air.) The bathroom was a very small cube with low ceiling , it... More
