This is a perfectly located hotel in Nara. Right at the beginning of the Nara park, immersed in a green surroundings, and in a walking distance from all major attractions in Nara, it's perfectly suited for exploring the city.
Rooms are quite specious and very comfortable, service is impeccable and staff is very friendly.
Overall, probably one of the better choices for a stay in Nara.
My main problem with this hotel, though, is that it does need a major facelift. Although very well maintained, and perfectly clean, it does have an outdated feel to it. This has nothing to do with it being an old hotel, retaining its original charm, it's more to do with the squeaking floors, actual metal room keys, 80s style furniture, and dark corridors. Breakfast is served only a la carte. There is no wifi in rooms.
Additionally, hotel seems to be geared mainly towards japanese tourists, with mostly all documents in room written only in japanese, and basically no international TV channels.More
