Excellent location, great facilities ”

Fantastic location just steps from the JR Nara station and bus terminal where you can take buses to various tourist attractions. Big Supermarket just next door and food street across the road. We ordered a family room for our family of four and were so pleased that they managed to fit 4 beds into the room. Although the room was a tight fit, we were able to have a wonderful night’s sleep. Highly recommended if planning your next trip to Nara.

Great choice.”

I won't be looking anywhere else next time in Nara. Right next to JR Nara station. Supermarket, cafes & restaurants, convenience stores, buses, trains all within a 3-minute walk. Bus, or walk straight up the road to Kofukuji temple, Nara park and Daibutsu (30 minutes). Rooms are larger than most in Japan. Comfortable and well-laid out. Staff are great. Many restaurants on site. Fridge small and not so cold, as is usual.

A bit pricey, but it is right next door to Nara Station, so the cost is to be expected. A grand lobby greets you. Clean and comfortable room awaits you. We managed with three adults sharing a room, and there was space to move around within the room. Desk staff was helpful, but never went out of their way to greet guests as they moved directly in front of the front desk. (Seems like they were always busy entering reservations, or something that required them to look down.) Housekeeping staff is most excellent.

A good option for visiting Nara”

This was my second time staying at the Nikko Nara and, if I visit Nara again, I would strongly consider staying there again. The hotel is extremely well located for access to the train station. We were able to drop off our bags easily and make our way to Nara Park. It is worth noting that the park is about a mile from the hotel. We are good walkers and that wasn't a problem but other visitors may need to take a cab to the park.
