Quiet and clean hotel, reasonable prices, fully functional services, very helpful staff - the hotel is for those who don't look for a superficial luxury but need to stay and feel fine in the city on business or tourist trips. Simple (complimentary) breakfast was not too tasty but never mind...

Room Tip: There are no parking lot for guests at the hotel, but nearest NARA train station is an advantage (no...

A good value business hotel located basically across the street from JR station. The tourist bus stops nearby. Clerks speak decent enough English to get by if you don't speak Japanese. Rooms are small, but decently sized for a business hotel. Only downside is the breakfast, which I skipped most nights I was there. Wireless available in the rooms.

I thought this was by far the worst breakfast I had in any hotel. Nothing had any taste whatsoever and I ate it three days in a row. It takes real effort to come up with such a lousy breakfast. Otherwise the hotel is just fine, good location, nice staff with good English, and rooms very clean. Internet downstairs.

We chose this property because it was close to the JR Nara Station. Our room (two twin beds) was small but that seems to be the case with most "business hotels" in Japan. The bathroom was surprisingly good. The ceiling above the shower/tub was high enough to stand upright and take a shower (which is not always the case in Japanese hotels). The heated fog-free section of mirror above the sink was very cool, as was the toilet with heated seat and bidet/wash functions. The rest of the room was ho-hum. There was very little floor space to unpack bags on, the window was frosted (so no view whatsoever), and if opened mosquitoes came in by the dozens. Air quality in the room was also bad, our allergies flared up significantly, and the air-con unit was schizophrenic in that it alternatively blew freezing cold or stuffy humid air. The most disappointing part of our stay however was the breakfast, which was hands down the worst we have experienced in Japan. Inedible soups, mushy overripe fruit, tasteless yogurt and baked goods ... the worst items were the triangular Japanese rice-balls wrapped in seaweed. Usually these are an absolute delight, even when bought at a 7/11-type store, however the ones served at breakfast here were terrible. The label would say "tuna" or "salmon" filling, and you would be hard-pressed to find a half-teaspoon of tuna or salmon in there. It was basically 98% rice with a seaweed wrap. Given how high standards of food in Japan usually are, the breakfast at this Comfort Hotel was disgraceful.

We stayed two nights (april 11, 12th 2012) in this hotel and we would recommand it to anyone visiting Nara. Of course this is Japan and service was outstanding. The "typically japonese" is right there, no need to sleep on a futon...

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel. This hotel was quite convenient as it's quite near JR Nara station. The 1st impression of this hotel was the smile of the staffs. Every time you go through the main door, they would greet you with gracious smile. The feeling of comforts started right after you stepped in the hotel.

Though the room was not large, it could fulfill your basic needs. The bed was comfortable with specially designed pillows. The room was neat and clean, which was mostly concerned as a budget hotel. The hotel provided free breakfast and free coffee corner. Although the food was not grant indeed, the food quality was above average. It's worth to stay again I visit Nara again!

I needed a hotel for one night on a visit to Nara. This place fit the bill - close to the station, central, as well as comfortable and clean. However, those looking for a "typically Japanese" should stay away- this is just a standard issue hotel which you find anywhere in the world.
