Located in front of the JR station, it is very practical for commuting to/from Kyoto or Osaka. It's about 2.5km from the Great Buddha temple (Todaiji) East of Nara, easily reachable through walking streets. Rooms are very small, with just enough space for a double bed (comfortable) and a compact bathroom. Relatively quiet. Breakfast included in price (11,700JPY for 1... More

With a 1800x1200 bathroom which has a bath, basin and toilet and a room fitted out like a caravan there wasn't a lot of room to move about. The smallish double bed had a pull out draw which doubled up as a desk if you sat on the floor. You could also use one of the three power points that... More

The hotel is less than one minute away from airport limousine bus stop. Excellent location because JR station is right across street and there is also an upscale supermarket by the station, not to mention all the bus stops to any places around Nara. There were two very friendly and pretty ladies helping us checking in, their English is limited,... More

This hotel is cheap in comperison to other hotels in Japan. It is right next to the train station, but there is no noise from any of it. Rooms are fine, bit small but what else is new when you're travelling Japan. Beds are great, you can pick out your own pillow at the pillow corner at the entrance hall.... More
