A short taxi ride from JR Nara and within walking distance of Nara Park and local restaurants. Staff were excellent when I needed help to send flowers. Breakfast offered traditional Japanese food with some Western options, which suited us fine. Slightly dated rooms but service and location made it a good choice.

A standard business hotel with a good location for Nara tourists. We had a twin room on the fourth floor. Despite construction works taking place opposite, we didn't hear a thing til we opened the window. Good, comfortable and clean beds and a good couple of night's sleeps here. Staff at the front desk didn't speak a lot of English... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the level of high quality service. The hotel is dated and need of an upgrade but don't let that put you off. They have free coffee and tea, other nick knacks and comfort is a high priority. You are waling distance to the shops and key historic sights. I could not recommend this hotel more... More

Just returned from Japan, spending two nights in Nara. This is a very nice, no frills hotel, but in a great location close to the Kintetsu rail station, close to lots of shops and restaurants as well as very close to Nara park. English speaking staff available. Very clean and quiet. I would definitely stay here again. I did not... More

We stayed here when we visited Nara two weeks ago with our daughter. The hotel is conveniently located near the Park and there are loads of great restaurants nearby. The hotel room had all the amenities we wanted and comfy bed. Our daughter is still raving how friendly the people in the reception where, especially a young lady who made... More

I came to this hotel with a tour group. Their rooms are decent, but incredibly cramped. For single occupancy, I think it's fine. But I was traveling with my mother, so two beds in one small room was incredibly tight. Their bathroom was like an airplane bathroom with a bathtub inside. It's that confined. I'm a 5' 11" tall man... More

This hotel is 5 minutes away from Nara park. It serves a good variety for breakfast and has nice staff. Good comfy bed, smallish bathroom but always hot water. The only english channel TV was BBC news, but then why should you watch TV if you don't get a big jetlag and can actually sleep at night. Only complaint was... More

Stayed at Hotel Sunroute for 1 night whilst sightseeing around Nara. Very convenient location, only about a 10 minute stroll from Nara Kintetsu Station (note that Nara JR station is further away). Located on a very quiet street and is only about 200mts/2 minute walk to one of the main entrances of Nara Park. Less than a 10 minute walk... More

I came to Nara for a conference from the US. But then I realized that I lost my poster for the conference. I got to Nara on Sunday and the presentation was on Monday. I talked to a receptionist who spoke good english and she made many calls and managed to arrange a library room that has a special printer.... More

Stayed here for one night to sightsee in January '15. Hotel was clean and centrally located (I walked from train station, and walked to all the sites). Room was small but that seems to be the standard for business/non-luxury accommodation in Japan. Nara is a beautiful city and this is a perfect budget friendly hotel to get some rest for... More
