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)
