“Convenient location”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Stay in this hotel for 1 night in Oct. This hotel is conveniently located - just 3 mins walk from Kintetsu Nara train station (which is so much more convenient then staying around JR Nara station). As long as you study the access map upfront, this hotel is very easy to find.

Though this hotel is located in a mini shopping district but it's not noisy at all (because the rooms are on high floors). A relatively big supermarket (with 2 floors) is just on the opposite side of this hotel and all the major tempers are within walking distance.

Shortfalls - very small room (not a big problem for me) but clean, staff can't speak English but very nice. If you need travel suggestions, simply go to the Tourist Center at the Kintetsu Nara train station. It's located on ground level and it opens sharply at 9am. Staff there can speak English and very helpful.

This hotel is really hard to find but first you find it you will enjoy. When you get off the JR Line Nara Station there is a main street across the station. Take the main street, after second traafic lights on the left hand there is a small path. aproximately 100 meters you will find the hotel. Don't miss it. It is 3rd floor of a boutique. Despite finding the hotel was very difficult it was good stay. Very close to all historical sites. Friendly front desk.

Ok so first off, it took an hour to find this hotel. Not only is this hotel on the 3rd floor of a random boutique shop, the sign is only in Kanji except for tiny print on the bottom that says Hanakomichi... We circled the town twice and had to go to the tourist info center, get a new map, and have them write what the sign looked like in Kanji. Good grief what an experience.

The front desk spoke 0 english but things still worked out somehow. The room was quite comfortable and spacious for a business hotel and all in all it was a nice stay. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from all the sites, which is pretty good. Nara is a cool spot and this hotel is definitely in the thick of it.

I enjoyed ... but finding it was a bit of a challenge.
