My first trip to Nara--this hotel is right on a huge park and my room had floor to ceiling windows across an entire wall--as if the entire park were just there for me. The room was understated and impeccable, the service was amazing, and the bar is a cozy place for a well-mixed drink. This place is a do not miss!!!

Cute old fashioned hotel on the edge of the park with small but clean rooms and bathrooms. Classic charm with everything small but not cramped. Attentive staff. Lovely breakfast with many choices, western and japanese. As you would expect super clearn.

Room tip: overlooking park is better

This hotel is actually even nicer than on photos, its charme might be difficult to depict, because it consists in the utter attention and all detail. The rooms are as clean as only can be, with the largest beds I've ever seen! Immaculate service, fantastic breakfast and dinner! Beautiful views of the parc, very calm, yet central, perfect location. Highly recommendable! Thank you!

My husband and I spent 1 night at the Noborioji and we were kicking ourselves for not having had a longer stay and for not having had dinner at the French restaurant. We have stayed in numerous hotels/ryokans in Japan (Ritz, Palace, Peninsula, Hiiragiya etc.) and the Noborioji pleasantly surprised us more than any of them. Our standard room was spacious and had the most luxurious bed. It was huge with down pillows of perfect density. There was every amenity you could think of (nespresso machine, green tea, regular tea, a "women's pack" consisting of shiseido products, complimentary ramen noodles and water, 2 pairs of slippers each, one of inside and the other for the balcony). The room was tastefully and comfortably decorated and our balcony overlooked the park.
We arrived early, but it was no problem to check in soon thereafter (they were even apologetic that the room was not ready yet). The gentleman who checked us in was so gracious, even giving us deer cookies and water as we headed out.
We didn't eat at the French restaurant, as we wanted to eat Japanese food, but after breakfast the next morning, we knew we had made a mistake. Breakfast was very carefully and deliciously prepared and so we could only imagine what dinner would be like.

We are now planning another trip next year and plan to return to the Noborioji and to eat at the French restaurant.

Room tip: We had the cheapest room as nothing else was available, but we were perfectly happy with it. Next time we will try to book the suite.

I’ve stayed in many fine hotels, but I don’t think I have ever experienced the attentiveness and attention to detail I found at the Noborioji Hotel. I chose it initially for the location a block from the Kintetsu Nara train station and literally next door to the Tofuku-ji Temple. The wonder of Todai-ji Temple is only a short hike away, and then there’s those lovable, pesky deer. There’s even convenient shopping and dining in the covered pedestrian malls just around the corner. In all, the location can’t be beat. But the beautiful accommodations, including the biggest bed I’ve seen in Japan (California King, perhaps), the fresh fruit tray and ramen bowls waiting in the room, and the friendly staff will have me recommending this hotel to everyone. A super-thoughtful touch was the prepared bag of deer crackers and small water bottles we were given to enjoy on our stroll in the park. I will long remember my stay in this hotel and hope to have an opportunity to return and stay again in the future.
