I have been to this hotel several times in the past but this was the worst experience. As a repeat customer who has always been nice to the staff I was not even acknowledged with so much as a nod when I first arrived from the female staff member who knows me. I was served spoiled food on more than...

Luckily we only stayed one night! The pillows were rock hard and definitely the worst ive ever used. The rooms are overly tiny and the breakfast wasnt the best. We got the 'american' breakfast which consisted of 'bacon' (a piece of deli ham) potato salad, a salad, watery scrambled eggs and a piece of toast. The toast was great!

The Nara Washington Hotel Plaza is a reasonable, pleasant hotel just 5 minutes from the Nara JR train station. The hotel is on a street with many nearby restaurants, many of which are open late. Our bedroom was medium-size by Japanese standards, very clean and with a well-equipped bathroom. All the hotel staff were very polite and helpful. Many of...

The hotel is located a 5 minute walk from Nara Station on Shimosanjoco Street. This street boasts a wonderful variety of restaurants, shops and a number of convinience stores on the hotel's doorstep. It is ideally located within 15 minutes walk from the Kofukuiji Temple and 20-25 minutes walk to the Todaiji Temple. The hotel has its own restaurant which...

Do not waist your time with this hotel at all if you visit Nara. It's more cheap hostel than hotel. The reception is shabby , the rooms are smaller than an airline toilet and the breakfast I wouldn't feed to my dog. I do not recommend unless your look for very basic and cheap. There are other hotels so stay...

Bit of a dated hotel but located Conveniently 2min from Nara station and 10min to by foot to reach the park. Rooms are small but serviceable, as we were able to fit a pack and play crib inside with just enough room to squeeze by and still exit. On a street right nearby lots of food and rink options, and...

The location is excellent. We had a double room with two beds so the size of the room was nice. The walls really really need some painting, otherwise the room was clean and quiet. It was winter and cold outside and the room was worm enough. We didn´t have breakfast included and the first day we had it at the...

The twin room was considered ok but there is no aircon. Only heater. If we keep the window open, the traffic around is very noisy. We fan ourselves to sleep even it's on 24-26 Oct (2n). Beds, bathroom are really consider good. Out package include breakfast and dinner, the food is ok and very fantastic. There are more interesting food...

Our worst stay in 2 week vacation. Paid for accessible room and was told only available one night. They then gave us a non smoking room tho the second floor was overpowered by smoke. NOT the cleanest place-- One price for breakfast. If all you want is coffee & toast, you will pay full price. And yes indeed, the eggs...
