Been here with my husband and we stayed for 1 night after going back to Osaka. The room is quite small but very clean. Facilities are pretty good. This hotel is close to the station so that I just put all my suitcase there after...More

Close to the train centrain station and to the city center. The rooms are rather small, but clean. Perfect for short stay in the city. The beds are not comfy. Way too hard! The staff doesn't really speak english, so communicating is a bit tricky,...More

奈良の観光名所は、近鉄奈良駅が最も近いため、そこへ行くためにやや距離がある、ということ、シャワーからお湯が出るのに少々時間がかかること、これを除けば、特に非の打ち所の無いホテルだと思います。客室は清潔でスタッフの対応も丁寧で、快適に過ごすことができると思います。 前述のとおり、観光名所からやや距離があるからか、ホテルの周辺は近鉄奈良駅の周辺に比べ、レストランの数もやや少ない印象です。その代わり、休日などの繁忙期でも、宿泊の価格は近鉄奈良駅周辺のホテルに比べ、やや抑えてられている、印象です。観光名所へ行くにはやや遠いものの、安く宿泊を抑えたい、というのであれば、このホテルを選択肢に入れるのもいいかもしれません。 In order to go to most major sightseeing spots in Nara, it is more convenient to use the hotels around Kintetsu Nara Station. You feel that it it a bit far to go there when you stay at this hotel. To mention another...More
