"Everything about this hotel was above standard: comfort, cleanliness, size, food, staff, location. We were forced to stay in Nara because Kyoto was booked up (really!!) but we had a rail pass and it was only 40 minutes to Kyoto. Nara itself was far more accessible than Kyoto and we were on the best and most interesting small street leading directly to the World Heritage Sights, which were the equal of anything in Kyoto. We loved the deer and the giant Buddha hall. Superb. "

"Very clean and new hotel. Room is small but not too small. Comfortable with comfy bed, clean and new bathroom. For us, the cleanness is definitely 5 stars. Breakfast is good but more japanese style than western style. Machine coffee but tase good. The downside for us is the location. It is near JR station which is convenient. However, the area around is a bit industrial and it is quite far from all the main attractions. You have to take taxi or at least more than half an hr walk to the main sightseeing. Staffs is very nice, english is good. "
