    Service was excellent”

    The service was top notch! We were served by a lovely taiwanese lady by the name of 莊 throughout our trip there. She was very attentive and explained every dish of the kaiseki dinner to us. Dinner was great and we were all so full after the dinner. We left our luggages at the Mikasa information centre when we reached and went travelling around Nara. We then took a shuttle bus up from the information centre and our luggages were already in our room when we reached.

    Environment is great, impressive experience in tatame hotel, people are nice and helpful”

    Pros: great environment , good for couples and small family (with a kid). They are a very special night event for sightseeing on the peak, very romantic and feel likes we are in the movie scene. Not many people use hotspa which is great and I love seeing the star at night by myself :) our room has a big empty for overviewing the view of nara, we can really spend out time there by doing nothing happily. Oh pillow is very special too. Ladies got to pick their own japanese dress when they check in which is another highlight point for me!! (Tho it would be great if there is a section to teach us how to dreas it or the cutlure) Meals are great but too much! Cons: Wifi needs to improve.

    Nice view up the hill but need to pay the toll”

    Very nice view up on the hill side. If you drive there, I think you need to pay for a ticket or toll to get it & out because it is located inside a natural park or something. Very big hotel, nice and clean and beware some rooms are close to the main road and it can be noise. Food is not bad but I think they are a bit short of staff and you may found that you are missing some attention during dinning or reception. Overall, I think it is a bit over priced.

    A less than desirable stay, could have been better with better communication”

    We booked into one of this ryokan's best rooms with private outdoor onsen bath. As we were making our way to Nara that day, we called the ryokan from the train asking for the time of the last seating for dinner, to make sure that we don't miss out our booked kaiseki dinner as it was my partner's 30th birthday which we most definitely didn't want to miss out. However the receptionist spoke no English at all and could not offer us any info whatsoever so when we arrived at 21:20 we were told that we missed the time for last order which is at 21:00. Nowhere in our booking does it say when the last order for dinner is. We could have taken the kinsetsu (not covered by our JR passes) had we known when the last order time is or even if we did miss it, we could have bought some food near Nara station. But on this day, we ended up having cup noodles in our room, because the place was so isolated that it was literally impossible to venture out for alternative dining options. The onsen itself was okay though very small compare to other ryokans of similar pricing. I wouldn't recommend this venue if you don't speak Japanese or expect something better for your money.

    This was the second time we stayed in a Ryokan hence we were able to make a comparison. Mikes Ryokan is indeed excellent, even if quite expensive. The room was the usual standard ryokan room, but the public bath was better than expected. Dining was superb with great variety and abundant helpings. Breakfast was also very good.
