Daibutsukan was a great traditional Japanese hotel. Loved the view from the balcony: Kofuku-ji Temple behind the trees, and deer running around the park. Green tea was supplied with a thermos of hot water everyday. Every morning I sipped my warm tea from the same balcony. I also loved wearing the yukata (Japanese robe which they provided), while sipping my tea. Place was always immaculately clean. Extending the 10:00 pm curfew to 11:00 pm would be nice.

We stayed at the Daibutsukan Ryokan for one night and found it to be ideally located for our short trip. Nara Street is two minutes away where there are plenty of restaurants and shops to browse. The main tourist spots in Nara are conveniently positioned around an easy 2 or 3 hour circular walk. The hotel is right on the edge of the circuit and indeed the beautiful Kofuku-ji temple pagoda is the view from the rooms. The rooms are spacious enough to have futons and table with zabuton in place... Read more

Great location, clean, and friendly staff. But old Japanese style facility in the mid 80s, shoes off in the hotel, could not sleep well on the futon/tatami. So if you are more into Western style with a mattress, look elsewhere.

This is the first ryokan we tried and it was a great experience. We told ourselves that while in Japan we had to try a ryokan at least once. As soon as you come in you have to take your shoes off and put slippers on which keeps the place clean and makes the experience even more interesting. Somebody shows you to your room and explains it a bit then they ask you to sit down and gods to get a cup of tea for you. Once you leave to go have dinner they prepare your futon. There is also public hot bat... Read more

Only 20 mins walk from the JR Nara station, we arrived at our hotel, opposite street from the Kofuku-Ji. We were lucky to be put in a room with a view of the famous pagoda. After a relaxing bath and changing into the yukata, a fabulous dinner was served. There were so many dishes, we didn't even know where to start. While we were having the unforgettable dinner, our beds have been made on the traditional tatami. Tatamis are made of grass. The room is filled with the natural scent from these mats... Read more

We loved this Ryokan, it's family run and very near Nara park and the sightseeing area. It's just in front of the five-storey pagoda and a lovely small lake. The owners were amazing, so kind and helpful. The room was Japanese style and big with a small western style table and large fridge. We didn't try the baths nor food unfortunately; but everything else was great! I would definitely come back.

Visited Nara daibutsu temple with family and friend. You need to travel from kyoto to nara by train for an hour. You may get bus or taxi to nara daibutsu temple. We visited during new year holidays so there was huge traffic jam and temple was full with people. Took taxi from the back root. Temple was beautiful and attracting is shika dears walk freely around the temple and in city. You can feed them senbei crackers and those beasts are too aggressive. This place is world heritage and you mus... Read more

This is the first Ryokan i've been in my life. Its clean and people at the reception is friendly. No english as most of local places but u will be able to let them understand what u want. After 23 doors closing and remember that check in is not available till 15. There is a pool, i dont know if is Onsen or artificial but was good. Customers were 50 and more. Nice experience at a very good price.
