Ex-Nara residents
The most convenient location in Nara, right next to Train Station, parking in basement and supermarket right there. The service is always good. Only areas for improvements are: -Japanese Bath Locker area for ladies is very congested ALL the time. Maybe to extend the time or expand ladies locker area? - Breakfast is excellent with both Japanese and Western selections. But after a couple days, it became monotonous. Vary the menu a little? - Front desk to improve on restaurant guide for the visitors? They had only a couple suggestions. With busy tourist season ahead, they were not very helpful. - To be more ecofriendly, there is no reason to provide new towels, pajamas, etc. every day. Give customers a choice to skip daily service

Hotel is right next to the JR station ( there are 2 train stations in Nara). We rented some e- bikes which I highly recommend as the park and temples are quite spread out. It was lovely to have some freedom and not have to walk for a change. Quiet city, and a bit limited for dinner choices with English menu. Really enjoyed our visit tho

The hotel kindly allowed us to have breakfast in the room because our son was ill that we couldn't go to the restaurant. So nice.
