My husband and I stayed here for one night during a trip round Japan. We paid ¥7,280/night for an en suite double room (including tax) with breakfast.
The Super Hotel chain offer basic, budget rooms. For some reason you get a single bunk above the double bed. Our room also featured a fridge, desk and LAN internet access. It was a surprisingly large room for Japan and for the price (much larger than another Super Hotel we stayed in). The staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel was located right opposite the station (about two minutes’ walk -- don't get it confused with the other Super Hotel - the Super Hotel Lohas JR Nara-eki -- also right by the station, which is a bit fancier I think). The included breakfast was very basic - just salad and white bread rolls (we stayed in another Super Hotel with a more comprehensive breakfast).
A nice touch is the selection of pillows in reception you can choose from; if you do want to have one of these in addition to the ones in your room, grab one as soon as you check in as they do all get taken quite quickly.
For the price this was an OK place to stay -- if you just want somewhere clean and functional to sleep for one night, it's more than adequate. If you're here for several nights though, you have no access to your room between 10.00am and 3.00pm.
Nara itself is a really interesting place to visit. We really enjoyed our time here, and would definitely recommend staying overnight here rather than just doing a daytrip from Kyoto.
