Cultural and historical City

Clean, good service and top package
8
It's not cheap compared with other hotels in the city. It's not near JR nor Kintetsu Station. But it's very near the sight-seeing spots. The service is excellent. Everything is clean and tidy. The room is relatively big in Japan. The hotel is indeed historical and properly the most high-class on in Nara. Therefore, I think Agoda had really offered me a relatively cheap price. It's highly recommended for tourists with enough funds.

Glorious time to regroup and breathe

its meticulous preservation of its history, elegance and low-key pride in appearance
8.7
It was so restful, I hardly went out of my room. Dinner was superb, the best restaurant meal I have had in Japan in my 3 week trip here. Staff friendly and attentive. I could barely ask for more.

very good location and beautiful surrungding

comfortable bed and big rest room
7.3
the hotel is in good location and it is easy to find the hotel there is limousine bus stop infront of the hotel you just walk 3 mininutes from the bus stop you will see the hotel on the left hand side. The services are very good and it is warm and cozy in the room. Ii is a quiet surronding so you can sleep well for the whole night.The breakfast too is very quickly served you do not have to wait for a long time. I am very happy at this hotel and hope to come and visit Nara Hotel again in the near future.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The first place you have to visit is Todaiji temple you will see the big Buddha statue in the big temple and Nara park surrounded with Mt.Wakakusa is a good veiw to take pictures.I love the deer walking in the park and some beg for food . The next place to visit is Kofukuji temple it is the antigue pagoda in Nara period and Kasuka Shrine with the orange colour it is very fascinated to visit these places.

Loved it, was in the new wing but was still a good environment and staff were more than happy to help.

"very well located with some kind of flair"

Location (nice view, close to temples)
7.7
the location of th ehotel is very nice as it has a bus station just in front of the hotel and many of the nara attratcions in short walking distance. furthermore, you have a great view from the hotel and it is quite peaceful. the rooms were alright but not the newest ones and drinks and food is very very expensive so it is not recommended to eat in the hotel even so the food is supposed to be good.

Must stay in Nara

Excellent overall
9.3
hotel offers great service, location and an ambiance that allows guests to feel the history within. rooms are nice and it has great access to temples, arcades and many other interesting places nearby.
Restaurant Tip: I recommend eating outside the hotel if possible.

Booked new wing single but was ugraded to old wing

History and charming service
9.3
Was incredibly happy about the upgrade to the old wing; seems the hotel was fully booked. The location is brilliant; a morning stroll through the deer park is a joy. This is an old hotel so please don't book expecting all the mod-cons; the main reason for staying here is to slip back to a slower time period. It is a VERY Japanese experience; quiet, rather quaint service and there is a chance that someone from the Imperial family may be staying when you are!
Shopping Tip: Within 5 minutes walk is a sake brewery called Harushika where you can sample the locally produced sake for a small fee. In the Naramachi area.
