“Good location”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Hotel located beside jr station, which is very helpful for travelers. Staff are friendly, polite and helpful. Twin bad rooms enough to hold 3 peoples so no need to get extra bed. Out side the hotel you can just go straight and find many cafe/bar.

Stayed July 2014

This is my second stay in this hotel. The first time was 2012. The hotel is right next to the JR railroad station and is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. It is also within walking to the Naramachi district which has many traditional Japanese houses. The bus to Osaka airport stops near the hotel so airport transport is easy. One can also catch the many city buses to historical sites and temples in Nara.

The hotel breakfast has many selections. The hotel has Japanese, Chinese and western restaurants but given the choice of restaurants nearby, there is absolutely no reason to eat in the hotel.There is a good bakery on the ground floor and a large supermarket is nearby.

The hotel room itself is small and basic, but I suppose it is typical of Japanese hotels in this price range. The service staff are very good.

You literally leave the gates of the JR train station and the entrance to the hotel is on the platform right outside the train station. Even though we were that close to the station, I don't recall ever hearing the trains. The room was bigger than most Japanese hotel rooms. Very happy with the convenience of the location of the hotel and the staff. We would stay here again.

I had a one night stay at this hotel in April 2014. Modern hotel just beside of JR Nara station. It was very easy to go to the hotel from the station. Personnel was very friendly and helpful.

My room was comfortable and clean. Size quite small, but was enough for me.

Nara Park is a bit far by walking, but you can also take the bus - bus stop is in the front of the station.

Very comfortable and nice place to stay. I recommend.

I live here with my family in our vacation. Only 1 night but the service was excellent. My husband forgot to took the key out from the room and the staff were helpfully and fastly help us to open our room with their master key with all smiles on her face. breakfast was typically nice.
The location is just a minutes aways from the station. And lots of shops nearby. Just across the street u can find lots of restaurants including KFC and. Mos Burger. Also have a quite big supermarket. Overall my staying was nice. Will reccomend my friends or relatives.

This hotel is connected to the JR train station complex. You can easily view the hotel as the train approaches the train station.

A walkway connects the second floor entrance of the hotel to the station, so you don't have to deal with the pedestrian traffic below. Next to the hotel on the first floor is a grocery store that has a bakery inside that serves very delicious baked good. The staff is super nice and provided maps and tips on how to sight-see in Nara. Across from the hotel is a bus depot, which makes sightseeing very convenient. The room was nice and comfortable.

Wonderful to walk out of the train, only to realise you are at your hotel already. Great location with just a five minutes walk to the city center. Good breakfast. Large rooms with a luxurious touch and a nice indoor onsen.
