How wonderful it is”

We have a graceful traditional tatami room, it can be enough two people freely. All of the staff are pretty kindness and helpfulness. Appreciate every staff and thanks your services. Another thing I must mentioned you before you enjoy this traditional construction, this hotel has its rule for check-in time. It's special condition. Do not worry your safety, it has a proper project to protect you and your stuff. I DO love this one.

Excellent location and lovely staff”

It was great for what we paid (£19 for two) and the room is exactly like the pictures. Only cons were that the floor is very hard (not like tatami mats) so sleeping on a very thin futon was uncomfortable and we had to walk through the shared kitchen to use the shower and sink!

2nd Visit to the Hotel”

This is our 2nd visit after 2 years and it is very very satisfactory. The location is close to Keihan or Kintetsu Line (Sorry could not recall correctly) but it is quite a far distance from JR station. The hotel itself is in a quite area and the surrounding is nice where Kofukuji Temple is just beside the hotel. The staff is very very helpful and speak fluent English just the same as our 1st visit 2 years ago. In future, if there is another trip to Nara. Hotel Pagoda is the only choice i will choose. The room we took was double bed room with Tatami flooring. The best part was the room was the same one as per 2 years ago.
