As a background to understand the review: we stay almost exclusively at Toyoko Inns when traveling in Japan so have many others as points of comparison. The anomaly is in why this Toyoko should get less than a 5 since pretty much every Toyoko we've stayed at gets a 5. I struggled with a rating of between 3-4 due to several factors, some of which are simply personal and may be irrelevant to the readers. The most significant detractor from a 5 rating was that in our room as well as our friends, the hot water during a shower would frequently get completely cold and would stay cold until you reached out through the curtains (if you've stayed at a Toyoko before you will know what I mean) and manually readjust the hot water. Our group's conclusion was that the faucet system may need a high flow of water to prevent this but we don't like to waste water and have it splashing all over the place with such a high flow. Other minor observations: you'll see in the pictures that the twin rooms are quite unique. You feel like you're in a dorm room or depending on who your partner is in the room, you either like the privacy or feel like you're separated because the bathroom is in the middle of the room and separates the twin beds. There is also a fairly high step up to the bathroom raising some concerns for the elderly. The outer facade of the hotel is a slightly different brighter blue green so when looking for the hotel, be on the alert. Honestly, we stayed at this hotel because the two other Toyoko's at the JR station were full. But we're glad we ended up here. the Gion subway stop is right at the hotel and the Kuko subway line (main subway that takes you to the park in one direction and the airport in the other) allows you to bypass the busy JR station. In addition, there are many historic temples across the street with an outstanding senbei shop right at the intersection across the street from the hotel. We would have never seen this had we not stayed here. The walk to Canal City and the yatai food stalls is also shorter from this hotel compared to if you stayed around the JR station.

Location: One subway stop from Hakata, if you come by Subway to Gion, exit 6 has elevator. The hotel has GREEN walls, not the usual light beige Toyoko, and is located on the left hand side of Pachinko store. Rooms: Toyoko standard, clean+ functional, hard mattresses, tiny toilet with tub, no smoking smell. Some street noise can be heard, probably the windows are not double layer. Staff were good, some not English fluent, but will communicate in all ways possible.

When you stayed at more than one hotels of the Toyoko Inn chain you know what to expect, because rooms are fairly identical, but equipped with everything you need from free WiFi and a Japanese space-age toilet to a water kettle and the usual shampoo/conditioner/showergel combo. Since the decor is the same, you'll feel immediately at home. This property is slightly older, however it looks like the rooms were refurbished a couple of years ago. The lobby / breakfast area, however, it rather outdated and small, especially during the busy breakfast time. My room was not too small, certainly bigger than my previous Toyoko Inn experience in Kagoshima. It was clean, but there was some noise from the street, since it was on the 2nd floor (Japanese counting), resp. 1st floor (European counting). I made use of the coin laundry on the ground floor and asked the reception to forward my luggage - they spoke basic English and were helpful and friendly. Another plus is the free breakfast, which, however, was quite crowded every day. One of the main advantages of the hotel - besides the great value for money - is the location: the subway stop is right in front and so are numerous bus stops. Hakata train station (JR Lines and Shinkansen) is a 10 minutes walk with all it's shopping and dining options, but there is also one convenience store on either corner of the block. Canal City mall is also in walking distance.

This is a business hotel chain in Japan. As usual, the hotel room that I was allocated has the same design with the other outlets that I had previously stayed, thus everything is the same in the room. Sizing of the room is small but you are still able to open up your luggage on the floor without any problems. The bed is very comfortable! Sizing for the bed for 1 pax is a small double size bed. For ladies, this outlet gives out bodycare set when you checked in. They provide free breakfast. Variety is actually much better than the other outlets. The breakfasts are very tasty for the 4 days of breakfast that I had eaten. This outlet’s breakfast’s specialty is actually Mentaiko. It was very surprising to be able to taste this. Location for this hotel is only 15mins of walk to Hakata Station. From Gion Station is only 1min walk. Staff for this outlet speaks pretty good Basic English, so there shouldn’t be any problem.

The Toyoko Inn Chain is a well run, highly efficient and, invariably, very convenient hotel group. The Ekimae Gion is nicely sited next to the subway entrance and very close to some of the more stunning temples / shrines in Hakata. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are the standard Toyoko Style though, due to the hotel being squeezed into the city centre area, are, a little smaller than the norm. An easy walk (seven mins) from Hakata Shinkansen Stn, this is ideal for those travelers who find The Toyoko Inn hotels to their liking. Breakfast can be quite hectic due to the limited space down stairs but, that is a very minor issue.
