Stayed there for 1 night en-route from Osaka to Kyoto. Basically we choose the hotel for its price - only 7,000 Yen and close proximity to train station.
It's just located 2 minutes walk from Kintetsu's Shin-Omiya Station. The hotel has a huge signboard on top and one can easily spot it after stepping out from the station.
Minor downside is that Shin-Omiya Station is one stop (or 150 yen) away from Kintetsu Nara station, which is situated at the centre of Nara providing walking access to Nara's main attraction - Nara Park and its surrounding. Minimal eatery and shopping opportunity nearby, but there's a Matsuya (Japan fast food restaurant chain) and 7-11 nearby. Nevertheless, this does not diminish much the convenience the hotel offered as we
IMPORTANT NOTE: JR Nara Line does not have any station nearby Toyoko-inn.
Room is not too small, clean and the bed is comfy. Free breakfast provided but only serves a few types of Japanese rice, salad and Miso Soup. Coffee is included as well.
Staff is polite (as most Japanese in service industry does) although speaks limited English. However,this would not slow down or complicate the check in and check process Free WiFi, standard toiletries stuffs and also including comestic set (Lotion, hair brush, hair clip etc) for female guest.
P.s. Toyoko-inn is a major business hotel chain in Japan. One thing interesting is that most of its staffs are females.
