        Good value for money. Well located. Clean. Restaurants were a little expensive except for breakfast which was a1 and reasonable.

        for the category I think all was OK

        close to JR station, very convient.

        close to JR station, so the room is a little noisy when the trains pass by.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Located directly next to Nara train station and central bus station

        No wifi, but wired internet is available. Bike rental should be for free given the price of this hotel.

      • Couple
        5.0

        The hotel is willing to change room for us, and the staff taking care of this is quite nice.

        The furniture are terribly old and worn, considering that we have to pay 15000 yen for a single night excluding breakfast and everything. The ventilation is poor, because the air con is weak and the fan in the washroom is not even working. I called the reception desk for this ventilation problem and they divert my line twice (which means I have to repeat three times the problem I encountered). They are willing to change the room, but it becomes a twin room instead of the double room we originally reserved. Generally speaking the hotel is not bad, but it simply doesn't worth the money.

      • Couple
        6.2

        The Bed was queen sized and the room was a nice size. We liked the fact that the staff were helpful and were accomodating. The fact that they were also able to speak english was a great bonus.

        It was hard to get in and out of the hotel from the ground floor. We would have appreciated maps and other information about the city on checking in. Although when we asked we were given some.

      • Couple
        7.4

        Newly furbished rooms, directly next to trainstation. Very nice bakery on ground floor (not belonging to hotel).

        Hotel is lacking charm, just one other big hotel. Pillows were soso.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        Very close to Nara station and bus station. Comfortable bed and quiet room althought it is very close to the station.

        re-usable slippers. It made people feel the slippers were not hygiene.

      • Couple
        7.8

        the location is absolutely great! In fact it's connected to JR Nara station and since Nara is a small town most of the places can be reach by walk. Its lobby give you a sense of luxury even though the room itself is not considered as a high end designed. Moreover, there's public bath tub facility, we didn't manage to enjoy it but still it's an extra facility that you don't find it easily from other hotels.

      • Single
        8.8

        Directly connected to Nara jr Station, 20 minutes walk from most of the historical sites.

        All good!

      • Single
        5.8

        Easy to get to Nara JR train station as it is connected with the hotel. (But, Nara Kintetsu train station is more convenient for a travel) You can also easily get to the shopping mall in Nara JR st. Staff was very kind as the famous reputation of Nikko.

        I stayed in twin room although my booking was single room but it was not big problem. Room seemed a little bit old.

      • Couple
        7.4

        - It is a typical big hotel with many rooms, business-style, classic music in the lobby etc. Everything is as you would expect for this kind of hotel. Personally I don't really like big hotels but the plus of this a is that it is directly in the train station. So perfect to pass the night after or before a train ride and you dont want to carry your luggage much further.

      • Couple
        8.8

        I found the staff very helpful, the room comfortable, and the food at Yoshino restaurant excellent!
