Our stay at this hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. If you want to experience Japanese hospitality at its best this is the hotel for you. As a plus the hotel is within a short walking distance from the main attractions.

Wakasa is a small accommodation on a local street in Nara. Breakfast and dinner were delicious with wonderful food. Bathrooms had Shisedo products and spacious shower/bath area. Decor could be updated but overall a nice stay with helpful staff.

The hotel is closely located to Nara park, which is ideal for sightsseing but not so close to Naramachi, where the restaurants and a decent nightlife is situated. The hotel sits next to a main street which is somewhat noisy and which can be heard from the rooms and the surrounding of the hotel is not very attractive. After a...
