Tea Lounge Reviews

Tea Lounge Google Average Rating



Sort of like the french restaurant, the atmosphere and service are great but it's extremely overpriced for what they offer (cup of tea / a slice of cake)


I had been wanting to visit the Nara Hotel for some time, so I decided to use the tea lounge while sightseeing in Nara.
The atmosphere of the building and the service of the staff were perfect, and I was able to spend a relaxing and special time there.
After using the lounge, I asked the staff if I could take a look around the building, and they happily replied, "Of course," and also handed me a pamphlet with information on the attractions inside the building.
The coffee and cakes are a bit expensive and not particularly delicious, but I feel satisfied because I was able to have a valuable experience that I wouldn't normally have.
I still want to use it.


From the moment I entered the hotel, I was impressed by the wonderful hospitality.

The cafe was crowded and there was a line, but the waiting area was so nice that I thought it was okay to wait longer.

The nostalgic atmosphere inside the hotel was irresistible.

The cake and tea were delicious.
If I go to Nara again, I definitely want to stop by.

I decided that the next time I was there, I would order the deer cappuccino.
