CHECK IN時請我們在沙發區辦理,很特別. 早晚餐精緻美味,第二晚怕我們會席料理吃膩, 還特地更換為火鍋, 滿滿的一大盤日本牛牛肉加上一大盤菜餚和甜蝦, 都可以看的到廚師的用心. 貸切溫泉十分舒服,可以眺望五重塔.因為房間數不多,所以不需等待. 飯店每位員工皆親切可親, 臉上永遠都洋溢著微笑,熱心為我們解決問題. 這2天我們深深感受到日本濃濃的人文精神,是一次令人享受的旅程. 希望下次能再度入住!

這次一家四口,包括兩個小孩在奈良選擇入住這家酒店。雖然有歷史,酒店設施相對舊,到時非常方便。就在奈良公園旁邊,小鹿就在你身邊。走兩三分鐘就到購物街。附近有家“菊水樓”的鰻魚飯超有名。酒店出來有個小湖,環境一流的。 總的來說,非常滿意的入住。如果再到奈良,還會選擇入住。

唯一不好就是那么小的厕所配了马达那么强劲的风扇,在寂静的夜晚非常大声,整个房间都回响着管道里的马达轰鸣声,而且不能单独关闭,必须在大门旁边关闭总闸。写着部屋照明的就是总闸。一关总闸整个房间的电都会切断。只能在睡觉前关闭了,不睡觉的时候只能忍受这种轰鸣声

奈良旅行的最佳住宿位置”

这个酒店可以说是奈良旅游的最佳位置,距离近铁奈良站、商店街步行十分钟,兴福寺就在旁边,到东大寺、奈良公园、若草山、春日大社均可以步行。酒店的日式房间很大,不过入门的位置有些狭窄,得轮流脱鞋入房。酒店的早餐特别棒,出乎意料地丰盛。唯一让我们不满意的是,居然无法寄存行李。退房时间是上午十点钟,我们预订的机场巴士是下午两点钟,而酒店却说行李房关闭,不能提供行李寄存,这对于酒店服务来说有点匪夷所思。只能推着行李去火车站找储物柜。如果我们下次来奈良,可能会选择旁边的其他酒店入住了。

在奈良停留入住的很好选择”

酒店在湖边,环境很好,离 JR 站不远,拖着行李走路大概10分钟吧。下午3点入住,我们到的时候才1点,就把行李放下出去玩了,回来入住的时候服务人员已经帮把行李放进房间了,还介绍了酒店各种设施,很贴心周到。 酒店有公共汤池,也有两个私汤室,房间是榻榻米式的,提供的浴衣可以穿出房间,很好看。 奈良不大,大部分人都会选择当天去当天回,但是那样会比较累,可以考虑在这里住一晚,泡泡汤,第二天早上再去拜访一次小鹿们,也会是不错的体验。 唯一遗憾的是,早餐是定食,不是自助式的,对于我这种不吃海鲜的人来说可能好多菜都吃不了了,最好可以提前跟客人沟通一下。
