    Great hotel, great rooms and very helpfull staff with a very good english level. You can book a room there without any hesitation. Just be prepared for a japanese breakfast with soup, fish and rice... typical but not always easy to eat as a European !

    Asokasou is very well located next to Nara Park. We had a beautiful tatami room with a view of the famous 5 story pagoda. The service was very friendly, the food was excellent and the onsen was clean, hot, and relaxing. Highly recommended.
