    Beautiful traditional architecture, inside and out. Attentive and friendly service. Comfortable.”

    Only con: 15m walk up some hills to Nara Park and to the train station, which isn't easy with big bags. Renting a bike for a day helped.

    this was the only traditional guest house we stayed at on our trip but next time we will do more! the room was simple yet comfortable and tasteful, but it was the welcome was the main thing: a glass of tea the moment you arrive, advice on the best route to follow to see the sights and recommendation of a neighborhood restaurant that was not only the best we ate at on our trip, it was also the cheapest. the kind of tips no travel guide can provide. add a location that makes you wish you could stay in Naramachi forever and it all adds up to a special experience.

    Avoid the dormitory”

    People here are really nice and welcoming, but because of few negative points we will not come back again. The dormitory is really tiny, the bed are really narrow, and you can quickly feel confined. As the beds are made in new wood, you can hear all the movements of your neighbors. The mattress is hard as stone, even for Japan. There isn't a real place to put your luggages, you have to put them in front of your bed, and the room can quickly become a mess. The toilet are just in front of the beds, which can be noisy at night. The building is 200 years old, which is lovely, but the dormitory is in a new building in front of the house, so you can't really enjoy it. The common area is not really welcoming, and the "kitchen" not really convenient. The laundry is really expensive. It was one of the less comfortable dormitory we had in 6 months of travel in Asia, and it is really expensive for what you get (not even a breakfast).

    Amazing ”

    This place was amazing! Down a cute little road but still super close to Nara park & everything around it. The main building is 120 years old so a little creaky but that adds to its charm. It’s a fantastic building!! We stayed in the little pods out in the front building which was super comfy and even though it was a pod it was very spacious. But there are family rooms in the main building. Staff were so so lovely

    Beautiful place”

    I stayed here for one night in March 2018. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful; felt like an expensive hotel! The building is over 100 years old, and looks lovely. Free tea and wifi (although the wifi wasn't that fast, it was fast enough). The dorms were in the mini-capsule style; not a huge amount of space, but comfy and private to sleep in. Toilet and shower were clean and nice. Perhaps a 15~20min walk from the station, 25~30 from Nara Park, 30~35 from Todaiji temple. Would stay again :)

    The hotel is decorated as Japanese style with shared bathroom. Garden in the front and back are nice looking. the only down point is the location. Take 15 minute walking from Nara JR station. And 10 min walking to Nara Park.

    A very good experience to stay in Japan traditional house”

    I have a great time staying at HARUYA Naramachi. I book for a dorm but been given a FREE upgrade to single room by the time I check in. This is so cool and I am very happy with that. The price is cheap. Location is a bit far from subway station but it is near to Nara Park. Room is clean and staff is super nice. Facilities also excellent with free wifi. Have to keep in mind that this is a very old traditional wooden house, you will heard other tourists walking in the house but I still have a great time staying for 2 nights in Nara. =)

    Stylish, comfortable inn”

    Extremely helpful staff. Beautiful, clean and convenience facilities. A wonderful place and would stay again. I will say that with the older building, even when people are being quiet, you can hear quite a bit but we slept very well and were not bothered at all as everyone is very considerate. If someone is very sensitive to noise, this might not be the best place for them. We loved it though!

    The best value for money in our month long trip in Japan! Super clean, great amenities.”

    This place is brand new, super clean, equipped with high quality fixtures, great kitchen appliances, nice bath and yet so affordable! We got a private room for our family of four and really enjoyed our stay. We have travelled all over the country from Tohoku all the way down to Yakushima and found this place to be the best value for money. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We ended up cooking quite a bit just because it was so fun to use the kitchen and their nice big dinning table. I particularly like the Japanese grill/oven/steamer. It is about 20 mins away from Kyoto central by subway but we didn't mind. There were plenty of restaurants, supermarkets, Daiso within a walking distance. And you can ride bicycles to explore the more rural landscape nearby, including a tea plantation. This place felt like a home away from home. But much cleaner. :)
