This hotel is near Kintetsu station; this line has fastest connection to Kyoto. JR station is farther away. The rooms are spacious with very well equiped bathroom in addition to public bath. The beds are excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Upon arrival and every evening when we returned from a day walking they awaited us with hot...

Kasuga hotel is just up the road from Kintetsu Nara Railway Station and major bus stop; very close to interesting shops and restaurants; and a short walking distance from Nara Park and National Museum and shrine. Service was excellent and attentive, and traditional breakfasts really beautiful. Our room was very comfortable, with both western shower, and an 'open-air bath' --which...

The hotel is in a most convenient location being just up the hill from the Kintetsu Nara station. (The JR station is a few blocks away.) Our room, 310 was very spacious, and could be called a fusion of Japanese and Western styles, with permanently set up western floor mattresses - two king singles, and two low chairs and coffee...

This is one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had in my travels. The hotel staff were accommodating and attentive without being intrusive. I encourage everyone to experience the traditional Japanese hotel and to partake of the amazing dinner served in room. The food is some of the best I've had. The baths are not to be missed. This...

We spent one expensive, traditional, and lovely night here. We chose a Japanese room and Japanese meals. We were greeted with iced green tea and hot towels. Our room was gigantic (we splurged for an in-room, outdoors, private onsen, so we didn't have to be naked with other people), and had two toilet rooms, a little kitchenette area, a living...

The care, the cleanliness, the service, the tatamis and the futons, and of course the Toto Washlet toilets would have been pleasure enough. But the way everything was perfectly constructed, the aesthetics of the place, and the interactions with the staff turned our stay into an uplifting experience. The dinners and breakfasts made it truly extraordinary, never to be forgotten....

Lucky to book a room during the Nara Marathon. The hotel is almost right next to the Kintesu station and also the covered shooping street. It's only a short walk to the Nara Park. Breakfast was great, was Japanese set. There was a large outdoor pool in Japanese style. Though water was not real onsen water as the hotel already...

Initially we were going to go to Nara for just a day trip from Kyoto but decided to stay overnight instead. I am so glad we did as I feel we really got a true feeling for this lovely city. We arrived via the JR line as we had a 7 day rail pass and this hotel was a quick...

Pros:- 1) Superb Location - 5 min walk from the Kintetsu Nara Station which we arrived at from Kyoto. - Higashimuki Shopping Arcade is just next to the Kintetsu Nara Station, and you'll find shops, cafes, restaurants, a supermarket, Daiso, and a big drugstore amongst other things. 2) Wonderful service staff - We checked in on the actual day of...

My last stay in Japan was at Tawaraya in Kyoto so I wasn't expecting too much from this Japanese style hotel. I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the experience. We stayed in a Japanese room with futons and were half board. The good sized room was beautifully clean and functional and came with a useful foot massager. The meals...

“The "traditional" room was a nice experience, but make sure you know what you're getting - it's very different from a Western room. Make time to use the hotel baths - they're tremendously relaxing.”
