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!

Great place to stay in Nara. As it's in the Deer park, it's not close to the centre of town but it is close to all the attractions. We hired electric bikes which helped allot getting back up the hill when we went into the town to grab some food.
Wow, Wow, Wow! We, 8 of us are amazed by this Guesthouse which was beyond our expectation. The interior design was superb. We love it. Cleanliness was superb. We had a very, very comfortable one night stay. Cooking are available. Owner, Taki was very accommodative, friendly, spoke excellent English and always put up a smile on his face. Parking is fantastic, just next door. Restaurants and convenient stores are nearby.
The Nara Hotel was a bit of a splurge for us, but was well worth it! It is in the park that runs through the middle of Nara and easy walking distance to temples, museums, and the Nara-machi shopping district.
Our room was in the new wing and was larger than our master bedroom at home. It was quiet, lovely and luxurious. The restaurants in the hotel are overpriced, especially for the set menus, but so are most hotel restaurants we have found. We did eat a la carte in the Japanese restaurant at the hotel and it was actually almost reasonable and the food and service were great.
Our waitress spoke English well, but you cannot rely on the front desk to necessarily have someone who can speak English. They do bend over backwards to be accommodating here, but they really do need to have a concierge desk with someone who can speak other languages. There was certainly no shortage of personnel at the hotel, so it could be easily done.
All in all, this was a lovely place to stay for a couple of days in a must-see town.
