I'm using this hotel while traveling in Japan for business. The location is very good, It is known to all people and it is easy to get to and from. Not too expensive. Always clean. I like to none- smoking room since I do not smoke.

More affordable hotel in Nara if your are spend time in West of Japan like Okito, Osaka, Nara. Ride train every day with your PASMO card. Great service. We spend night in room with bathroom, but the sharable showers en every floor are good.

The positives – 50m from the Nara Station (JR Line), large sized room for Japan but a very small bathroom– a supermarket and several restaurants nearby – The negatives – a longish walk to the central tourist area and not very helpful staff - the ‘tea tray’ had minimal supplies (Japanese Tea and bowls instead of cups) - I asked...

It is an expensive hotel, the restaurant food even more so, however it delivers. The room was large, clean, bathroom impeccable and there was no lingering smoking odor- we stayed on a non-smoking floor. It is located really well, quick access to the JR line as well as downtown night life and little caffes and breakfast places which save you... More

Excellent positioned to the airport – we arrived early evening and took the shuttle service to the hotel. Room okay and finally yet importantly, do visit the in-house sushi restaurant – fantastic service and sublime food / moderately expensive! Well, welcome to Japan ;o) The next morning we caught the fast service to Tokyo from the airport (after having taken... More

The single most uncomfortable and overrated stay on our journey. The only nice thing was the location; you can step off the JR Nara platform and walk directly into their lobby. Everything else was a letdown. From the lingering smell in the air (clearly was NOT always non-smoking, did a poor job of hiding it) to the horrid "beds" provided.... More

The hotel is close to train station, supermarket and few restaurants. Room is small but clean and tidy. Bed is comfortable. It's a bit pricey for the size. Didn't try the breakfast as for 2,000yen can have better food downstair at restaurant or mos burger!

Rooms are very big with plenty of room to store your stuff. comfortable bed, close to station, and about 20-25 minute walk to the main gardens,parks and temples. If u dont want to walk the bus is right around the corner. I would stay again in the future.
