“A nice and relaxing stay and onsen experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

It was a surprisingly experience stay at Super Hotel Lohas JR Nara-eki. The locality was good. It is just opposite JR Nara Station and the Nara Bus Tour Agency and has airport limousine bus to Kansai airport. From Osaka Station, there is direct JR train to JR Nara Station, so it's really convenient. There are also convenient stores (Lawson & Family Mart) downstairs, restaurants and supermarket (adjacent to the JR Station building).

The hotel is clean and neat, with a complimentary breakfast of buffet Wwestern & Japanese style. It has 2 hot spring pools in-house (male & female separated, opened throughout night). Has good security as all the access to the rooms and hot spring is by pin numbers. It was a value-for money stay especially with complimentary hot-spring for in-house guests when I booked through Agoda (USD60 for a single room). The hot-spring is also opened to non-guests but the price is more than 50% of the room rate. Thus, one just has to pay another 50% of the price, one can enjoy a stay with a complimentary breakfast.

Though the check-out time is early at 10am, but guests can keep their baggage at the hotel since its locality is convenient for airport or JR transfer.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet as they start from a higher floor.

I stayed for two nights and was pleasantly surprised. Located immediately next to the train station and on the edge of the shopping area lays this modern hotel. The staff is very nice and helpful, rooms are clean and well equipped, breakfast is free. What tops the experience is the hot spring in the house which you may visit for free. I'd be happy to stay there again.

The best part of the hotel is the hot spring bath. The staff is polite and invisible, the hotel is incredibly clean and smells nice. Even though it is just at the JR station (a busy area), inside the hotel it is quiet.
We stayed in a double room on the 10th floor and it was spatious, convenient and had everything necessary.
The hot bath is great after a whole day of walking around - gets the day off and clears all tensions. The ladies can stock on Japanese cosmetics at reception, which is a nice finish of the spa visit.
There is a "choose your pillow" wardrobe at the reception floor - interesting concept!
Breakfast is not spectacular, but sufficient and delicious.
Overall, I recommend it.

The hotel is located right next to the train station and easy walking distance from nara centre and nara park. The service is great with very friendly staff that speak pretty good english. There is a decent free and healthy breakfast included. Furthermore the hotel offers a free onsen (japanese spa baths) which are very clean and nice. Great after a long day walking in the park. The hotel offers free goodies for your body and different free optional items like different types of pillows and yukatas. The rooms are nice and clean. Free wi-fi everywhere.

Originally, I wanted to stay at a more upscale hotel within Nara Park area. My husband chose this hotel for it's location and I am so glad he did. It was ultra convenient with JR Nara steps away. The staff all spoke English and were helpful and friendly. The bus station to get to Nara park was just downstairs. We were able to walk back to the hotel from the park, and shop along the way. We checked out early and they let us leave our luggage there while we did a mini-excursion via train to another area. Again, so easy to do because we are right there at the train station. Their onsen public bath was just wonderful to relax and get clean. Free breakfast was amazing with a nice Japanese selection and freshly baked assorted breads. In the train station, there is a supermarket that has a great selection of prepared food, beer, sake, and groceries. If you're on a budget, you could select all kinds of sushi, croquettes, tempura and goodies for an inexpensive meal. Most items ranged from 189 yen - 800 yen. It got expensive for me because I picked out so many things--everything looked yummy!

We stayed here for two nights, and caught the train directly here after climbing Mt Fuji.
Needless to say, we were exhausted on arrival!!

The hotel is located literally 10 meters from the Jr Nara station. You don't need to even step out of the station to get to the hotel. Despite this, the hotel was very quiet and you couldn't hear the trains at all.

The double room is a bit small. The double bed is comfortable but one side is pressed up against the wall so one person is always climbing over the other.

The bathroom is clean however only stocks body wash and shampoo, (No conditioner) and a toothbrush per person. There is a box down by the lobby where ladies can stock up with hair treatment and shampoo sachets. (Up to 5 sachets only).

Breakfast is included and is an all you can eat buffet of bread rolls, croissants, sausage and scrambled eggs as well as traditional Japanese breakfast. Iced coffees and other drinks are available free.

There is a separate male and female onsen to use which is nice.

There is a coin operated laundromat in the hotel. ¥100 to wash in the washing machine (35 mins) and ¥100 to dry in the drier (35 minutes).

There is a family mart convenience store located right next to the hotel.
