                        a very beautiful historic building at a perfect location, very close to the most traditional part of nara. and hotel itself is actually just like a park. you can even see deers just outside your window in the morning. all staff are extremely nice and patient and the service is pretty good. and the lounge at first floor is also recommendable.

                        the facilities are relatively old regarding the price. room not so big.

                        Very good location for sightseeing (grab a taxi to/from the train station if you arrive/leave by train). Very polite and helpful (English speaking) staff. Spotless room, comfortable bed. Will stay again if I ever visit the city again.

                        No wifi in rooms (wifi in lounges/reception, cable in room) is the only negative thing i can think about. :-)

                        Near the park

                        Staff is not helpful and kindly as asual in Japan. Price is high and dinner or breakfeast are overpriced (more than 100 euros for a dinner) Bathroom is very old fashion (in modern part of the hotel!)

                        What can I say that hasn't been said before? Amazing hotel in an amazing location. Comfortable, clean, friendly and luxurious. Our stay here was the highlight of our trip to Japan. Like others have said here, go with the old wing! It added another rich layer onto our positive experience in Nara. (We did the breakfast, worth it... every yen...).

                        I didn't like the fact that we couldn't stay longer... or move in permanently.

                        Room was great. Very comfortable.

                        I thought the location was great, it being near the Kintetsu Nara station. Unfortunately, while the hotel isn't far from the hustle and bustle of Nara, to get there you need to climb quite a few flights of stairs. I was sweating, in autumn weather, by the time I reached the hotel. Not for the independent traveller. The staff were generally helpful but most are not able to converse in English.

                        This was the second visit for me in a couple of months, the first with my American friends and the second with my wife. The classic wooden building with the scenery of ancient City of Nara matched with warm hospitality of hotel employees satisfied more than expected for both of my party.

                        It is well located, and has an interesting history.

                        1. The room was rather cramped and old-fashioned. There was no view at all. For the price, I was expecting something much better. The room contained no instructions, and I had to hunt to find the socket for the wired internet. The response on that antiquated system was very slow indeed. I think the hotel is in need of a major upgrade. I came from a superb hotel in Kobe, which was half the price, and much better all round. 2. The French meals in the restaurant were very expensive, and for a European, one does not travel to Japan to eat French food. 3. There was poor sound insulation, and I could hear guests in adjoining rooms. 3. I was surprised that the staff did not help with the luggage, after I checked out and had to walk, with it to the bus-stop, some distance away.

                        Nara Hotel is a grand old hotel set in one of Japan's most historic and beautiful sights. The meticulously kept grounds and hotel along with the gracious and helpful staff combined to make our first visit to Japan unforgettable. Staying here is worth it for the ambience alone but the welcome extended to us by the staff exceeded even that.

                        Very helpful staff and beautiful building. Nice location near the park and walking distances to all attractions. The history of this hotel also makes it very unique.

                        No lift in the building.

                        Location is unmatched. It is right on the edge of the Nara park, a day long sight-seeing venue in itself. Also the building itself has an "old" feeling to it if you're into that kind of thing.

                        Staff courtesy was almost too much. Painful to watch.

                        Lack of Internet access but they quickly changed our room and it was then available

                        Enjoyed the old charm and ambience of this delightful hotel. The location enabled us to walk to the sights in Nara and not too far to the main centre. The staff were obliging and helpful too.

                        The bathroom was a bit too small.
