Centrally situated between JR Nara Station and Nara Park, this modern hotel is often the best deal in town. Rates vary depending on the season, and drop considerably outside the April and November peak periods. The rooms are spacious and decorated in pastel tones. The pink wave-shaped lighting in the atrium harks back to the 1980s economic bubble. There are two restaurants, one of which, Hanakagami, serves Japanese cuisine.
