Close to the JR Nara station, bus stops and a shopping mall, the hotel is a good starting point for visiting famous temples and shrines by public transport, as you can find a Nara city tourist bureau in the JR station selling discount day bus tickets, to which the hotel has even direct doors. You may go on an excursion... More

Hotel Nikko Nara was a really pleasant place to stay. Conveniently located right beside/above JR Nara station it was really easy to get to, and we didn't have to drag our luggage around super far. Most staff spoke English which was great. We booked for a Standard double room, which was a really good size. It included a large double... More

Stayed for 3 nights with 2 children and used as a base to explore both Nara and surrounding area. Rooms were not large but also comfortable size. We got the deluxe twin. Check in was quick and the location is excellent, right next to the train station. We did karaoke in the hotel one night and it was great and... More

After a long day's travel, what a relief it was to find the hotel was literally connected to JR Nara Station. Check in was smooth, place has a nice, new, business feel to it. Walked to the cluster of shops in the station, picked up a delicious dinner from Moss Burger, and headed back. Plopped into what was henceforth known... More

It was my first time to visit Japan and yes we chose to stay in Nara, a peaceful and beautiful city. I always believe in faith and destiny, perhaps that's why we are there! To travel from Bangkok, it is easy enough by many Airlines at your preference and budget. We flew with Scoot, everything was alright except their horrible... More

It's a very big hotel where you can have a good rest. The hotel is placed exactly next to the train station and just 10-15 min of all touristic places to be visited in Nara. Rooms are very convenient and comfortable. Just ask at reception if the can allocated you in a high floor and you will get a nice... More

This hotel is very convinient if you are travelling by train as is placed just next to the train station (I could even say inside) Walking distance from the main features of the city (Nara is a small city). The staff is very polite and professional. We had a double room and it was enormous, plenty of space, amazing views... More

Pros: Walkable distance to restaurants, stores (but farer from Nara Park) Cool bathroom mirror (a portion of it is heated so when the rest of the room gets really steamy there's a part that stays clear!) Had average English. Cons: Not so close to major sites. Near transportation: Practically on top of JR Nara. Hotel room seemed very worn out... More

Terrific location near train station. I was with a group and my single room was small....understand double rooms were larger. Probably one of the best buffet breakfasts I had in Japan with huge array of Japanese and western food. Beautiful lobby. As in most hotels we stayed in there is no foreign TV channels. Actually quite peaceful that way....
