Super Hotel JR Nara Ekimae
Ranked #13 of 65 Hotels / Ryokan in Nara
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2016

Located in front of the JR station, it is very practical for commuting to/from Kyoto or Osaka. It's about 2.5km from the Great Buddha temple (Todaiji) East of Nara, easily reachable through walking streets. Rooms are very small, with just enough space for a double bed (comfortable) and a compact bathroom. Relatively quiet. Breakfast included in price (11,700JPY for 1 night/2 pax). Booking thru Rakuten, I was mistakenly given a smoking room but it was still ok and not too smelly ... Good a for a touch and go stay.

The Super Hotel Lohas JR Nara is a great option to stay at when in Nara

It is located right next to the JR Nara station and can be accessed from level 2.

The staff speak amazing English and the hotel offers free breakfast and onsen facility that everyone loves!

The rooms are compact but super clean and lack for no amenity.

Would highly recommend the hotel and would love to stay again at the Super Lohas.

With a 1800x1200 bathroom which has a bath, basin and toilet and a room fitted out like a caravan there wasn't a lot of room to move about. The smallish double bed had a pull out draw which doubled up as a desk if you sat on the floor. You could also use one of the three power points that were on the end to boil a jug to make a hot drink. The foot end of the bed had a storage pull out where the cups etc were kept. It also contained a foldup chair with no legs. The bed though hard by western standards was comfortable and we slept well after our many hours of walking each day. All fittings were modern worked well very good shower and luxury toilet with many buttons and heated seat. It is located a stones throw from Nara station appeared to be an annex for another Super hotel across the road.
Breakfast was reasonable mostly Japanese but we found things to fill us up each morning No toast but small bread rolls or croissants, egg ++
We walked to Nara park several times and changed money in the street at nearly 10% better than the bank.

Good breaky, and comfy beds. Best location next to the station (no noise at all) , but easy walking to everywhere. The room was very small and the bathroom really really small ! Helpfully they have different pillows you can select. We initially booked a couple room, but the bed was too small so we changed for a small fee to a twin room. Slow lift. All in all this was fine for the two nights.

The hotel is less than one minute away from airport limousine bus stop. Excellent location because JR station is right across street and there is also an upscale supermarket by the station, not to mention all the bus stops to any places around Nara. There were two very friendly and pretty ladies helping us checking in, their English is limited, but the friendly gestures and their smile is beyond words. We felt really welcomed especially taking a 2 year old with us for the first time after a very tiring trans-pacific flight. The welcome gift for female guest is a pleasant surprise. The breakfast is one of the best during our trip in Japan. The room is quite small as expected, but having a two year old who likes to climb up and down of bed, the Japanese style setup (i.e. Taking off shoes at the door) makes me feel very comfortable and not worrying him picking up something from floor. This is my first time staying in a Super Hotel chain in Japan. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and will stay at the same place if we ever return to Nara.

On the convenience you're watched for 24 hours and by which you're a hotel when staying at this hotel, You'll be in the bathroom, but I'll sleep, but You'd be able to keep knocking at a door of the room Well, a chopper is the hotel I have to spend worst time where.

If you don't mind being in a very small room with a bathroom you can barely turn around in without bumping into something, then this hotel is a great value. Located next door to JR Nara Station it is very convenient if you have suitcases to lug around. The offer a very nice breakfast buffet, both western and Japanese style. Everything is clean. Staff is friendly and at least one per shift knows English.
