You should spend a night here even with a bit higher cost... No many hotel has this level of atmosphere and feel of history. I would stay again at my next visit for sure. 唯一無二のホテルです。確かに建物は新しくはないですし、部屋も広くはありません。でもここにしか無い雰囲気があり、それを感じるために泊まるのも、旅の一つの目的でしょう。

There isn't much choice for luxury hotels in Nara so discerning travellers will probably end up here with some inevitability. I would certainly not stay here again, having been billed £505 for a serious no-thrills room, unless they upped their service level and put in...More
