Good hotel in Nara at the station, convenient location. Rooms are small and very standard. Service is ok, bathhouse is not very good. Best is location as you can walk everywhere from the hotel. No breakfast

This hotel is located right next to Nara Station. Even on rainy days with no umbrella along with you, you would still be able to get into the hotel from Nara Station without getting wet. Rooms were spacious. Receptionists were friendly. Location was perfect. Rate was reasonably cheap.

The stay at Nikko Nara was overall great, but nothing special. The room is good, service too. Little difficult to find and access. The breakfast was also delicious. It is around 15/20 minutes walk to Nara Park.

The location of this hotel is the best having direct access to the train station and being very close to bus stations. The hotel itself is very comfortable with spacious rooms and friendly professional staff. There are four restaurants inside the hotel which makes the stay even more practical.
