Roger W. Couples Australia, April 26, 2014
beautiful hotel but overpriced for what it offers.

good staff, good access to cultural places
7.7
We had no problems with the amenities or staff. The staff were always professional. We didn't eat or drink there because of the cost; 2600 Yen for a glass of red wine!

A luxurious getaway hotel in the city of Nara

Room comfort, location, staff quality
9.7
We enjoyed our stay at the Nara Hotel immensely. It was by far our favorite hotel of our 8 stop trip through Japan. The rooms and service were great. The atmosphere and location in the park were restful. The gift shop was stocked with items our family was actually interested in. The history of the building was a unexpected bonus. The food at the hotel was very good by Japanese standards.
Andrew W. Couples United Kingdom, October 22, 2013
A complacent hotel, living off former glory.

Gardens.
3.3
We were very disappointed. This is a historic hotel that simply has not moved with the times. It is all very well stressing that you have been operating for over a century, but our bedroom appeared to have furniture in it that bores the scars of being over-used and battered - and the room carpet was both worn and grubby. Basic facilities like room safes or a business room or WiFI that works anywhere apart from the main draughty reception area. Most staff seemed to be still being trained; chaos at the (over-priced) breakfast with tea arriving at the very end of the meal, and wrong orders delivered. Maintenance refused to alter room air conditioning to the lower level we wished for overnight. We really thought this hotel was smug, complacent and way below par.
