We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Hotel is conveniently located close to both JR or Kintetsu station. There is Lawson and many restaurants within walking distance from hotel. Walking to Kohfukuji temple and Nara park took us around 10 minutes. Shopping street is also less than 10 mins away. Room is small, which is expected in Japan.

Came by limo bus from Kansas airport. Alighted at the bus stop near Nara station. The hotel is just 2 minute walk from the bus stop. It is a very basic hotel which we felt we had overpaid. (S$400 for 2 nights). It was a standard twin room but it was really small. And the counter staff, friendliness was not...

Stayed for one night. Location is great - in the middle of the city centre and between both main stations. Room was clean overall, but seems they forgot to hoover the floor - someone left a great chunk of fingernails on the floor. After 26h of travelling we were too tired to bother.

Hotel location, very good 5 min walk from train station, in middle of town, the hotel is clean, rooms are very small and even compared to other 3 stars hotel we have been in Japan it is very basic, good for one night if you are only passing through Nara

Only here for one night before our trip back home. Booked in to Rm 302 by pleasant & helpful staff. Small sized room, one side of the bed against the wall, we did manage to pull it out to have access both sides. We did find the bed slightly hard for our liking but okay for one night. Also in...

Around 5 - 10 minutes walk from JR Nara, or even the same distance from Kinten Nara. Silent at night, clean room and helpful staff. Agree that pillow is difficult because of its two-sided hard / soft design. Causal Business style instead of Luxury, good for short stay! Free Wifi in-room, 24 hours convenience stores at zero distance.

A very helpful person on reception checked us in and gave us directions to catch a bus. A clean business hotel, room compact. There are only 20 parking spaces, these cannot be reserved. The hotel is situated in the heart of the city mall close to many attractions and hundreds of shops.
