      Great place”

      Everyone in this hotel was super nice and respectful.The hotel was really clean. The theme was exactly what I was expecting plus more. It is very different from the other hotels in japan since it’s a ryokan. The only negative side is WiFi was really slow.

      Very nice hotel in a great location - perfect for the Japanese gardens, plus key temples and shines. The hotel even gave us a guide for the day, for free, who spoke English; that was a big bonus.

      The staff is fantastic, you can't beat the location. If you're looking for a luxurious get-away with real authenticity this is the place! The meals were delicious- only opt for them if you are up to try legitimate Japanese cuisine. We had a wonderful time. Tips: Check in early, they give you deer cookies upon check in! Feel free to store your bags there before check in time and explore the park, they were very gracious. The privates baths only fit one person.

      Extremely pleased with New Wakasa Annex Hotel. From check in to check out, the staff went above and beyond. Dinner and breakfast were included during our stay. The amount and quality of food you receive is simply extraordinary. Some of the best Japanese cuisine I've had. The facilities are spotless. Our room was spotless. The location is a short walk to Nara Park. There is a lot to see and the hotel staff will help you with directions and recommendations. I hope to stay here again and will recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

      location, clean”

      location is very good, near nara park and almost all the transportation, room is clean but not so traditional, onsen is normal, not much view for onsen.. food is just about average if compared to other ryokan in japan, staff is good, sending us a postcard and taking a instant photo of us when check out.

      Clean traditional hotel with private bath”

      Clean, attentive staff, quiet

      The staff were very welcoming and tried their best to speak in english with us as we didn't understand japanese. We booked the traditional japanese room, so we had to remove our shoes and placed them in a shoe locker before entering the property. The room was clean enough for a traditional tatami mat room; I'm quite allergic to dust, but I didn't have allergy issues during my stay in the room. They were also nice enough to serve us hot tea two times during our one-night stay (once during check-in, and one more time at night) and gave us postcards and pretty little bags as souvenirs to bring home. The only downside is probably the location. It's about a 10-15min walk to Nara downtown, so if you did not book the room with dinner meal, you'll have to walk quite a distance to the restaurant areas. We also had zero issues with noise even though there was a group of school children staying at the property during our stay. Well recommended!
