Travelling to Nara in Japan, we have picked NOBORIOJI HOTEL which is only a 3-minute walk from Kintetsu Nara Station. Noborioji Hotel offers modern luxurious accommodations with warm lighting and both free wired and wireless Internet access. Why do we choose this hotel? Apart from its very accessible location to the station as well as the lovely deer park, the... More

This was simply an amazing service level - was the best I think I have ever experienced at any hotel in the world. As an example we went to a restaurant - at the restaurant we asked for recommendation for dinner the next night - the hotel not only called the restaurant to make sure that our dinner went well...

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the soft huge bed and luxury. The staff are helpful but very uptight and they barely let our daughter stay. The restaurant is very nice and very formal. It is right at the edge of the deer park too. The staff gave us bags of deer food to feed the deer... More

I booked lunch for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. This place was highly recommended by a branding/marketing specialist in New York as this is a place that changed his perception toward service completely, of course in a better way. So I tried for the special occasion. Since this is still owned by Mori Seiki- one of a few global companies... More

We just stayed one night.... But this was absolutely the best hotel we stayed at in Japan. The location beside the park was perfect. The hotel was gorgeous, breakfast was delicious and service was impeccable. Next time we'll stay longer.

I had such a nice time here at Noborioji. I chose this hotel because of its location next to Nara Park and I wasn't disappointed. The first day was full of fun with great weather and full bloom of sakura. The hotel is really much into details of everything. From hotel itself with only 12 rooms, I guess, that's why... More

This was truly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. A boutique hotel with only 15 rooms, each was spacious with lovely oversize twin beds, modern bathroom with lots of high end amenities, and opening windows. What blew us away, however, was the service. The staff members were all so attentive and helpful, and they couldn't do... More

I can't say enough good things about this small (17 rooms) but utterly lovely hotel. The location for seeing the sights of Nara is wonderful, but the staff and the service and the rooms are all as good as you could wish for.

My wife and I stayed here for two night in early March.
