We stayed at the Nara Hotel for 1 night in 2 rooms. The hotel is set in a lovely location within close proximity to all the sights around Nara.
Our rooms were in the main building and had high ceilings and a view out towards the lake. The rooms are decorated in a 50s style with a nice fireplace and wallpaper throughout the room including the main door! The beds were quite hard but suitable for a good nights sleep after a busy day sightseeing. The bathroom was a good size and one of our rooms featured a 50s pink suite with both hand basin and bath in a light pink colour with wall tiles to match.
We had breakfast at the hotel which was quite an affair. Unlike most hotels, the breakfast was a la carte and served to you stage by stage in a grand dining room by waitresses and waiters dressed as if they were to serve afternoon tea in the 50s. The quality of the food was average but still enough to fuel you for the day.
The decor around the hotel is very "grand", we saw the tea room which was like looking into a time-warp with a large Grandfather Clock, Grand Piano and seats that one might expect to see in a Pyongyang hotel.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a unique experience in modern day Japan.
