“Comfortable stay in very small environment”
Reviewed April 23, 2011

We travelled to Fukuoka on a Dragon Air Holiday. Our first three nights were included in the package. We were booked into a semi-double room in the Best western Nakasu Inn. The hotel is located very close to Nakasu subway station exit three. If you arrive at the international airport in Fukuoka to get there you must take the free shuttle bus from stance one at the international airport then get on the subway and travel to Nakasu-Kawabata Station, go out of exit three turn lefy and the hotel is on the side road immediately to the right. It has a largesign in Japanese on its side and its name in english on the front. Check in was quick and efficient the staff do not know huge amounts of English but they have a pracxtical amount and check in/check out should go smoothly enough.

Our room was a semi-double and so was incredibly small. They have other double rooms/ twin rooms which are much better. The room was clean and had almost everything you could want except space. There was a provided kettle with tea and coffee. No roomsafe but there was safety deposit at reception. The usual Japanese fancy toilet with heated seat and attachments. Everything was very clean. There was a good provision of toiletries - big refillable bottles of liquid soap, shampoo, conditioner, soap/shaving foam, tooth brushes/ small tube toothpaste, cotton buds, cotton wool/ hair tiers, disposable razors.

We were at first thrown by lack of space but realised we could hang up some clothes on provided coat hangers, squeeze the luggage in between the end of the bed and the wall and sleep the wrong way round in bed in order to avoid banging our heads on the in-built shelf over the top of the bed. I also l;ike to sleep upside down in Japanese beds as I have a tendency to lean on the inbuilt alarm clocks in the head boards and make us miss train connections.

The Best Western is located in Namasu which is basically a long narrow sandback in the middle of the Naka Kawa River. It is very close to both Gion and Tenjin. There are lots of restaurants and shopping centres, shopping streets nearby and plenty of nearby convenience stores. The hotel was reasonably quiet and we got a good night's sleep. There was a soft drnks machine downstairs near reception and snacks were available at reception. We did not try breakfast at this hotel.

I may well stay here again but would go for a proper double room.
