“Excellent value modern hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2009

We stayed for just one night at this hotel, but it exceeded our expectations. On arrival you are given a yukata to wear in your room and at the spa. Ladies get to choose 5 items for free such as hairbrushes, face masks etc. You can also go to the pillow room, where you get to pick what type of pillow you would like! The rooms are very small, but comfortable and clean with all facilities you could need. The beds were comfortable, there is free internet access and a kettle/dehumidifier/ion hair hairdryer etc. The bathroom was pretty small (more of a cupboard) and probably not one for anyone very tall or wide - it would be a tight squeeze. A bonus is the spa - there are 2 single sex hot baths (not sure if it's actual onsen hot spring water?) which is open all night and a great place to relax. There is also a free breakfast, which was served in a pleasant room with a good selection of items available, both western and Japanese. Staff were extremely friendly too - recommended 100%!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2009

i travelled solo to Nara, i was looking for a place to stay when i got to JR station. i asked around and this super hotel lohas is right next to the station. about 2 minute walk.

when i got there, i realize they were just opened for a week or so. so everything was brand in the hotel. i go when i was non peak season, so the rate was really good for its services and amenities, about 7000 yen per nite. the bed was comfortable and spacious. maybe because everything was really new. full bathroom was provided.

when i arrived i was very well served and greeted. i was brought to my room by a girl attendent. since i was a girl, i was able to get a singles ladies room, which included some perks like facial masks, hair clip, bath spa, etc. i get to choose a pillow for my stay from a wall mount of various sized/softness pillows at the lobby. all the amenities were new. there is also an on-sen on one of the floors.

i didn't bring a laptop with me, so i can't try the internet connection in the rooms. but there's a common workstation at the lobby for everyone to use. and there's also a internet phone line beside the workstation for those who want to make local and international calls for free. which i made well use of.

the rooms are super clean and comfy. a large lcd tv is in the room, with radio wave,BS,VOD, CNN(American). there's also an electromagnetic server with humidifier and healthy ion slippers... all to promote a LOHAS environment

breakfast is also included, hot breakfast buffet was offered. nothing spectacular, but does the job to fill you up for the morning. go there early as the lineups are quite long.

i particularly like the location of this hotel, can't be any closer to the JR station. very convenient, close to the taxi and bus station and lockers. the hotel backs onto the rail tracks. but the rooms are sound proof. so not a problem there.

if u go online to see the photo gallery for this super hotel, its not correct. those photos are old and outdated... or maybe just copied from other super hotels. everything in this hotel at this location is new and looks modern.

if i were to visit nara again, i will stay with this hotel again. its an excellent choice!
