This hotel is close to the major sights and you can take pleasant walks to Todai-ji and Nara Koen. A short walk away is the Konishi arcade if you like fast food, souvenir shops etc but my family and i preferred to eat at the Naramachi district just a short walk south of the ryokan.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We enjoyed staying in this place, except for the room, which was not overly clean (dusty!) and smelled heavily of smoke. As there was no non-smoking alternative when booking and the place was full, I did not complain, but I do think that non-smoking rooms may not exist in this ryokan. Apart from that, the place was nice and staff were helpful in spite of the language barrier, but considering that there is no breakfast available, the value for money is not really very good. More 

Thank ambulanzen
