This has been our favorite hotel of the trip to Japan. The location cannot be beat. It is literally adjacent to the JR train station and bus station. We stayed in a Japanese style room and it was perfect. The beds were very comfortable, the room was small but well appointed, the automatic blinds were great, and the shower was amazing. The breakfast was a Japanese style and was wonderful. The staff could not have been more accommodating. We wished we were staying longer in Nara just so we could stay at this hotel longer. Love it.
the room is so clean and neat,love the shower room you should try too
everything is so good and perfect especially price
Excellent shower!! Comfortable beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location.
Lack of privacy in the toilet. Unable to darken room.
This is the best hotel we have stayed in for all our travels to Japan. If you're looking for a hotel close to the station, this is the one for you. Located a stone's throw away from JR Nara station as well as a 10 minute walk to a shopping district and a 15-20 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride to Nara Park, Piazza Hotel is close to everything you need to see in Nara. Downtown Nara gets pretty quiet at night, so if you're looking for a reprieve from city life, but don't want to go to the mountains, this place is a good compromise. The staff is very friendly and the front desk has at least one person who can speak English. When booking, I recommend getting a corner room as they are bigger. The view of the city and Mount Wakakusa is pretty and can be enjoyed through floor to ceiling windows. The room size is bigger than most you'd find in the city, like Tokyo, but about the same size as you'd find in Osaka. The hotel itself is modern and very clean. It is one of the only hotels in Japan that I recommend using their tub for a bath as it is that clean. There is no mildew anywhere, which is a difficult feat with all the humidity. The breakfast served Japanese small dishes, as well as cereal and toast. Coffee and tea are also available. The food is ok, so if you don't include it in your booking and want to eat elsewhere, you're not missing much. That said, if you do want to try standard "kaiseki" dishes for breakfast, you can do so. There is also a convenience store below and attached to the hotel, so if you need a snack or anything, you can just go downstairs. I highly recommend this place, especially to travellers who want to do Nara when they first arrive and are very jetlagged. It's a great place to relax and if I had known how amazing this hotel is, I definitely would have booked a longer stay.
I loved everything!
Location can't be beat, you can literally see the entrance from Nara station and it's a two minute walk away. The staff are so incredibly nice and the rooms are very nice and clean (though a bit small unless you upgrade). The shower "room" is a real treat and the hotel is close to an amazing grocery store (KOHYO) and only a block from the main shopping area which leads right to the Tōfuku-ji and the Tōdai-ji. Other hotels might be "closer to the action" but when traveling I think it's worth more to be closer to the train station.
First room was rather small but we got an upgrade due to a clerical error and the upgraded room was very nice. The curtains are remote controlled but they're rather slow and not precise every time—having a manual system would be nicer and faster.
In the heart of Nara, PIAZZA HOTEL NARA is within a 5-minute drive of Kofuku-ji Shrine and Nara National Museum. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. This hotel has 2 meeting rooms available for events.
