Reviewed 1 April 2009

Nice hotel in a safe area; nothing fancy but a good place to spend the night. Hotel is about a 12 minute walk from the JR Nara Station; a 5 minute walk to Nara Park (where the wild deer & all the Unesco World Heritage Sites are); and you will pass numerous shopping & dining opportunities in between the train station & the hotel site. Reservation was booked at hotel website -- hotel will ask you to confirm booking before arrival.

Hotel is a little dated - looking (think early 80's/ late '70's), but clean and in a quiet area. Hotel staff are friendly (but may have some difficulty with speaking English -- just don't ask for anything too complicated & you'll be fine). Breakfast buffet is optional/ extra charge, but is wonderful -- Japanese & American choices available.

Stayed in a non-smoking room with 2 twin beds -- good size for 2 people (Japanese rooms are smaller than Western hotel rooms). VERY small bathroom, but equipped with high-tech toilet and deep bathtub. Yukata, slippers, and some very orange towels are provided along with self-service tea. (Amusing "Disinfected" labels on everything)

First, the location is fantastic if you want to see the temples and shrines in Nara Park or even stroll down the pedestrian shopping streets and a 15 minute walk to the Todaiji Temple. Service was excellent. There was always someone behind the desk who spoke English. The room was average in size for Japanese hotels, the bathroom larger than some. Housekeeping service was excellent with fresh towels and sheets every day. Cabled internet service is provided in the room at no extra charge, just ask at the desk to borrow a cable. There is also a computer in the lobby for email and web access. Breakfast is extra but reasonable, about 1250 yen, in their beautiful restaurant and what a spread! Of course the typical Japanese breakfast which I am beginning to appreciate, but also scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, toast, French toast, rolls, fruit and plain yogurt. And of course, coffee and tea. We definitely enjoyed our time there and will book this hotel again when we visit Nara in the future.

We recently stayed at the Sunroute Hotel in Nara. It was in a very good location for shopping, sightseeing, restaurants, etc. The room was pleasant looking, but small, and very clean. The bedding and towels were changed daily and the sheets were pressed and white. We stayed on a no smoking floor, which was great! The lobby was spacious with several tables to sit at, vending machines, and lots of travel information--unfortuneatly, it was all in Japanese. The staff was professional and friendly, but didn't speak English at all. Luckily, we had some Japanese speaking people with us, so we could communicate with them. The room had a pot for making tea and we were provided with some green tea bags.
