This is highly recommended option to stay in Nara. It is very clean, close to main train / bus station. The owners are very friendly, speak excellent English and can guide you to main attractions in the town. Not to mention availability of good WIFI, kitchen and complementary tea all at a very reasonable price. I think it is an...

This place is about a 5 minute walk from JR station. The owners are genuinely friendly, keen to ensure that you enjoy your stay. Very clever use of space in the room compared to some of the larger hotel chains that have tiny rooms with only enough space for the bed. Very comfortable bed, good shower, and noise is kept...

This guesthouse is simply a gem. We decided to make Nara our base while exploring Kyoto and Osaka and could not have been happier to stay 10 days here. It is lovely to come to quieter city after the busier Kyoto and Osaka. Kazu and Noriko and staff were always keen to help. The place is incredibly clean and cute,...

We came by JR line from Osaka into JR Nara Station not the Kintetsu Nara Station. This guest house is under 10 mins walk to the right upon exiting the JR Nara Station. Easy to walk and find. We arrived about 11.30am so we left our luggage and rented the bikes for 500 yen pp per day and wandered around...

As many others have noted, this guesthouse was extremely clean and comfortable. We stayed here for two nights in August and can confirm that their air conditioning works well and blocks out any noise. The place is just a few blocks from the JR Station and within walking distance to the center of town and to Nara Park.

This was a great place to be. Having travelled for days it was good to be in a place where English was spoken. Other passengers also spoke the language. Its right next to the JR station and most of the tourist spots are close by. The owner/manager also suggested places to eat near by which were not too expensive. Even...

Great hotel 5 minutes from the JR station! The rooms are small but clean, modern, comfortable and yes, the bathroom can make you giggle the first time you see it! Amazing value and very highly recommended if you are just looking for a place to sleep and rest.

Having been on the road for a weeks, I'm beginning to question people's standards and tastes. This place is not one of them. Great place to stay! Pros: Where to start. The place was clean and neat. The desk and tv were a nice touch. We rented bikes from them and it was really easy to do, I'd also recommend...

The room is adequate and comfortable and of course, very clean. The place is even better in the reality than in pictures, especially mention to the nice and organized kitchen. I would like to highlight the helpful treatment received for the owner. He gave us useful advices for having dinner close to the guest house and was super nice by...

This was the cheapest stay for us in Japan and one of the most fun. We could cook in the kitchen which was a welcome respite from restaurant food. The reception was very friendly. The location is very convenient to the station which also meant an easy walk to convenience stores and supermarkets.
