Hotel location, very good 5 min walk from train station, in middle of town, the hotel is clean, rooms are very small and even compared to other 3 stars hotel we have been in Japan it is very basic, good for one night if you are only passing through Nara

Central location and very quiet. Room a bit small but clean. Good to have a fridge. Heating system is a bit weird because cannot control. In a small room, is a bit over heating, have to open window for fresh air.

Only here for one night before our trip back home. Booked in to Rm 302 by pleasant & helpful staff. Small sized room, one side of the bed against the wall, we did manage to pull it out to have access both sides. We did find the bed slightly hard for our liking but okay for one night. Also in...

Around 5 - 10 minutes walk from JR Nara, or even the same distance from Kinten Nara. Silent at night, clean room and helpful staff. Agree that pillow is difficult because of its two-sided hard / soft design. Causal Business style instead of Luxury, good for short stay! Free Wifi in-room, 24 hours convenience stores at zero distance.

A very helpful person on reception checked us in and gave us directions to catch a bus. A clean business hotel, room compact. There are only 20 parking spaces, these cannot be reserved. The hotel is situated in the heart of the city mall close to many attractions and hundreds of shops.

I have been to this hotel several times in the past but this was the worst experience. As a repeat customer who has always been nice to the staff I was not even acknowledged with so much as a nod when I first arrived from the female staff member who knows me. I was served spoiled food on more than... More

Luckily we only stayed one night! The pillows were rock hard and definitely the worst ive ever used. The rooms are overly tiny and the breakfast wasnt the best. We got the 'american' breakfast which consisted of 'bacon' (a piece of deli ham) potato salad, a salad, watery scrambled eggs and a piece of toast. The toast was great!

The Nara Washington Hotel Plaza is a reasonable, pleasant hotel just 5 minutes from the Nara JR train station. The hotel is on a street with many nearby restaurants, many of which are open late. Our bedroom was medium-size by Japanese standards, very clean and with a well-equipped bathroom. All the hotel staff were very polite and helpful. Many of... More

The hotel is located a 5 minute walk from Nara Station on Shimosanjoco Street. This street boasts a wonderful variety of restaurants, shops and a number of convinience stores on the hotel's doorstep. It is ideally located within 15 minutes walk from the Kofukuiji Temple and 20-25 minutes walk to the Todaiji Temple. The hotel has its own restaurant which... More

Do not waist your time with this hotel at all if you visit Nara. It's more cheap hostel than hotel. The reception is shabby , the rooms are smaller than an airline toilet and the breakfast I wouldn't feed to my dog. I do not recommend unless your look for very basic and cheap. There are other hotels so stay... More
