Exceptional 10.0
Good Find in Nara
We stayed two nights at the Centurion Hotel on 10/28-29 and it was wonderful. It's conveniently located across the JR station and a block away from the main drag to the Deer Park, etc. The staff was extremely courteous and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and the room was clean/comfortable. I would definitely stay here the next time I'm in Nara.

Very Good 8.0
Just good enough to sleep. It’s 15 mins from the closest train station. Not many restaurants around the hotel. If you sit until 9 am, the local bus start to run and the bus stop is right across the street.

Exceptional 10.0
Not far from the main street in Nara and a short distance to the train station. Great breakfast, comfortable bed and spacious room. We were on a busy street, but the room was very quiet. Very happy with the space overall.

Clean, comfortable, central
Nice stay in clean central location. Small rooms and bathroom. Parking lot nearby wasn’t too expensive if you have a bar. Service was good. We only stayed for one night.

Great location and value
Very close to JR station and not much further from the Kintetsu station, so great location. Excellent breakfast buffet. Small, stylish hotel. Good value.

Pretty Nice Hotel
Hotel was nice and clean and rooms comfortable with descent size for Japanese hotels. As with other hotels the self service laundry is a bit of a joke I mean after 1.5 hour in the dryer our clothes were still not dry and there is no temp setting to increase the heat. I know they need to make a little money at 100 yen per 30 min, but I don't want to spend the whole day drying clothes. Outside that the hotel was good and in room dehumidifier was nice for keeping us comfortable along with the AC. Having one elevator for the whole hotel was sometimes causing a bit of slow down going up or down, but tolerable. The location is excellent. It is about 3-5 min walk from Nara main train station in front of which there is a nice street about a mile or so long packed with various shops and restaurant with everything you need. The street narrows down and keeps going with other shops, but we didn't explore that part since we had everything we needed in the first part.

Nice retreat in Nara!
The Centurion was a welcomed surprise of a hotel. From the excellent English speaking customer service to the HUGE two double bed rooms to the lobby breakfast. Close to the train station and a few blocks from the deer and tourist attractions. Highly recommend this for a relaxing trip to Nara.
