    Great location”

    Absolutely loved the quiet and peaceful neighborhood, wonderful breakfast buffet, and excellent location near Nara Park.

    I would definitely recommend this hotel, but note that they cater primarily to Japanese guests, so English language skills are minimal. Also, the bathroom was TINY, but the room was a good size. The breakfast buffet was really great and had a wide array of traditional Japanese breakfast items, but also had a good bit of western food. And it was Very close Nara Park and some of the world heritage sites.

    Nice hotel close to Nara Park”

    location was good and very friendly staff

    The hotel is ranked as 3-stars while all our others were 4,5 - 5 on this trip. Our expectations was of course lowered, and the hotel is of course not a 5-stars hotel. The stay was however very nice, the room was a bit smaller, but still ok. The bath looked like it was taken directly from a small boat (but everything was clean and it worked). Friendly staff and all in all a good stay.

    Average western-style hotel in GREAT location.”

    good location, good teas provided in room

    Although we could get only two single rooms we slept in one bed anyway :) The hotel is in GREAT location - only some 5 minutes of slow walk from 5-storeyed-pagoda-temples-compound and 20 minutes from Great Buddha statue. Which totally overweighted the hotel's unavailability of twin rooms. The center is maybe 10 minutes of walk, JR station maybe 20 minutes. All quite near. The staff was very friendly but spoke very bad engrish :) At the end we understood each other. The single rooms were quite small but for overnight stay it was OK. Everything was nice and clean.

    Sunroute Hotel, Nara”

    Close to Nara Park Friendly staff Free internet access
    Small room (single)

    The hotel is only about eight minutes’ walk from the station and a few minutes from the five-tiered pagoda, which is at the southern end of Nara Park and the temple complex. I found the staff friendly and helpful, and English was spoken so there were no communication problems. There’s free internet access via a computer in the reception area. My only criticism was that my single room was small, so unpacking a suitcase was a bit difficult, but it was comfortable in other respects. As I was staying only two nights it didn’t matter very much. The street where the hotel is situated is quiet, with very little traffic. I would certainly stay there again.

    Great location”

    This hotel is in a great loaction. Very near the deer park and on the old side of Nara, so near the shops and attractions. Breakfast was a mixed buffet, room was smart with a reasonable view. Staff were excellent at providing travel advise for making the next difficult leg of our journey.
    Not aware of a taxi service and train/buses seem to be the other side of town.

    This really was the last hotel that had any spaces when I booked, and from the website I was not expecting much, especially as we prefer Japanese style hotels. It was a long walk across town from the JR station, but was in a great location for sightseeing, right next to the deer park and Pagodas. Staff were very helpful and spoke good English and the hotel looked clean and modern. We only spent one night here, but have no complaints about hotel. Best feature - Location.

    Perfect location for Nara Park”

    Good location for Nara Park. Staff happy to store luggage
    Nil

    The room was small and had a view of the carpark out the back, but was more than suitable for sleeping in which was all I used it for. The place was clean and the staff were very polite and spoke enough English to make life easy. I arrived early and they were more than happy to mind my gear while I went off exploring the local surrounds. Very close to Nara Park.

    Gute Lage, Zimmergröße ausreichend, sauber

    Die Unterbringung war angenehm, abgesehen von den sehr gewöhnungsbedürftigen Kopfkissen. Das Frühstück beschränkt sich für Westler im Vorhandensein von Toastbrot und ist deshalb sein Geld nicht wert. Trotzdem gibt es in Nara wegen geringer Hotel-Auswahl kein wesentlich besseres Hotelangebot.
