Booked over the net and didn't realise it was a ryokan hotel. Everything was exceptional. Located next to the major park/tourist attraction of Nara, very short walk to Nara station and the BEST onsen I have found so far. Staff were as you expect good staff to be without being over the top. Absolutely brilliant! Don't go there this hotel is all mine!!!!
"Amazing town and this hotel is right in the middle"
I loved this little town. The hotel is located in the center of an adorable local street. There are shops all down the strip. Coco's curry house is located at a nearby intersection (this is a must eat place in Japan). This town is near plenty of interesting shrines and temples, including Daibutsu (the biggest Buddha in Japan). Also there are deer that you can feed and pet in the near by park. As for the hotel, it was simple but pleasant. There was nothing to complain about. The staff understood English and were very friendly.
I had a great experience with this hotel. The location, directly across the street from the Nara station, was perfect for train travel. It was a little walk to the Kintetsu Nara line but there are always taxis and buses available at Nara station. It's near the long shopping street that leads to Nara Deer park and many temples and shrines. The staff had limited English ability but was extremely helpful and very kind. If they couldn't help you, they would find someone who could. The room was small but had everything I needed. Perfect! I would definitely stay at Sun Hotel again if I ever return to Nara.
Very clean and tidy, small but just what you need when out and about all day. Very close to train station, shops and walking distance to most of the attractions. Free breakfast (yummy pastries and rice balls and eggs) and afternoon tea and coffee...coffee made from fresh beans and awesome!
