Don't be put off when you enter and find a lobby that needs some love and updating. The room was modern and super clean. The ofuro was also updated. They spoke a bit of English and helped us pick a fabulous place to eat. It was a wonderful stay. Close to station, Nara park and eating. Everything right at your fingers tips even with 3 children (2 four year olds) we were able to walk every where no problem. Well worth the money.

I have never stayed in a ryokan before, but guaranteed that I will stay again. For a traveler on business you spend so little time in the room, elaborate, expensive accommodations are not a necessity for me because frankly I spend little actual time in the room. Traditionally the ryokan fits well with this model, a nice simple inexpensive place to stay. This one as beautiful and the staff was great! I am a big guy and even so, it was just fine for me (I did have to duck a little bit when I went out on the porch but that was no problem. Next time I go to Nara on business I will definitely stay here!

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.

location was great as it was just beside the nara train station. Staff was very courteous and made you feel welcome. Like the public bath which comes with an outdoor bath as well! Advice, don't pay for the dinner or breakfast, you get much better value for money if you eat at the eating places at the nara station.

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.

"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.
