“Good Location Free Internet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2008

A standard hotel on the main strip of the tourist area. The rooms are adequately furnished but the cleanliness is a bit under Japan's norm (which is ridiculously high) so it is still clean. There is free wired internet if you remember to bring an ethernet cable.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2007

We stayed one night at the Hotel Fujita Nara. It's on a street lined with shopping and restaurants, within walking distance to the train station and all of the major sights. It seems the hotel caters to business travelers, the room seemed a little outdated, and when we turned on the television, a pay by the movie porn preview came on, and we never could figure out how to just watch regular tv. There was also a stain on the couch which concerned me after viewing the "porn trailer". Other than that, everyone was very friendly and professional, bar was a bit overpriced, but again, the location and price were good.

Location wise this hotel was superb, literally few minutes walk from the main JR Nara station, and the other train station in town was not too far either. Plus, the deer park which led to the main temples was only a short 10 minute walk from the hotel!
The hotel is located on the main strip of Nara, so shopping and eating is a breeze, with the best restaurants and souvenir shops at your door step.
The hotel room size was very large for a Japan hotel, with a decent sized bathroom. The staff speak decent english, so if you do run into some problems with your Japanese phrasebooks you can put in some english words to make them undertsand.
I changed my holiday plans to specifically stay in this hotel (initially for its location) and I was glad i did, if going to Nara, this hotel is a must!

Stayed October 2007

Booked hotel last minute in Japan. Very friendly staff who can speak English. For standard room with two double beds, was only 11400yen (100 USD), a bargain!! Clean, well furnished rooms, TV, hotpot, refrigerator. About a 5 minute walk from the JR station. 10 minute walk to Nara park. Would definately stay here again!
