The location of this hotel is very convenient. There is no need to use the subway to go to Canal City, Tenjin Underground Mall, 24 hours open Ichiran, Don Quixote and all the other places that's a must go when in Fukuoka. The room is quite small but clean. Staff are hospitable and helpful. Breakfast is good and the area has a very nice view.
Stayed with my wife for 3 nights in October with another couple. Great location for rail station and rooms are small but reasonably well equipped. Had to have a smoking room which really smelled bad with strong smoke which if your not use to can be overpowering. Breakfast was very low cost but at best just palatable. A lot of fried food and very little healthy available. Check in was really overcrowded and took a good 30 minutes. Check also a little early at 10.00 am as every other hotel we’d used in Japan had been 11.00. Okay for a short stay.
We stayed here for 9 nights for a conference. The location is good - a short walk from Tenjin station (K08) but even closer to the Nakasu-Kawabata (H01/K09) station. So you can walk to Tenjin for shopping and sightseeing and also get around Fukuoka easily. The desk staff does not speak English well. You might use your phone to translate or write your request using block letters (ALL CAPS...easier to read), as everyone in Japan knows some English, but may have trouble with spoken English. If you want early check-in, or late check-out, you can pay for it. I'm not a fan of this policy, but it is what it is. We left our bags with the hotel (no charge for that) and went walking for a bit until our room was ready. They will give you a map (English on 1 side, Japanese on the other) with local places of interest. A weird thing: we were asked to pay in full when we checked in. We did, and got a small receipt with nothing on it but the price. When we checked out we got a more traditional statement. Our other hotel on this trip was a Courtyard by Marriott in Tokyo, and they did the usual: swiped our card at check-in but charged us when we checked out. Our good-sized (by Japanese standards), clean room had a view of the canal and 2 twin beds. We had reserved a double room and were expecting a bed we could both sleep in, but we didn't ask and just "rolled with it". What I mean by a large room is that we could both stand and walk around at the same time. There was also a desk, without a chair, and a small round table, and 2 built-in couches in the corner of the room. If you've stayed in hotels in Japan, this was a large room. There were 2 shallow closets that you could hang some clothes in, and store your luggage in, with a small shelf up high (not a solid shelf but with 3 or 4 metal bars) that a few of your items will fit on, but there was a folding luggage platform that we left open in the room the whole time we stayed (in the corner near the desk...and there was still room to move about). There were standing trouser pressers in the hallway that you could bring to your room, plug in, press your things, and return the presser to the hallway near the elevators. There were 2 bottles of water in the room (replaced daily, and it was HOT, so this was welcome). There was a tea kettle, cups, and instant coffee and tea (also replaced daily). Several reviews complained about the curtains not blocking the light - the curtains don't (they're sheer), BUT there are 2 wooden panels that pull out from the sides of the window that block the light completely. The beds were comfortable, there was a soft white duvet cover to sleep under, and the air conditioner was easy to program and kept us very comfortable (it was HOT while we were there). The bathroom was a step up from the room and had a Japanese toilet with heated seat and all the sprays one would expect. The large mirror over the sink had some sort of device to keep some of it fog-free after the shower fogged it up. The tub was large and deep, with a hand-held shower you could attach to a bar and move up or down. It was a very nice bathroom. There was body wash, shampoo, and conditioner in the bath, but most other amenities (toothbrush, washcloth, face wash, razors and shaving cream) were in a bin near the reception counter. If this is your first trip to Japan, bathe like the Japanese: take a cheesecloth-like washcloth, put on soap, and lather and scrub away at your body until you are 'squeaky clean'. I have become a huge fan of these (reusable) washcloths (yes, I grabbed a few more to take home...but you can purchase them at any conbini or 100 yen store). Then, rinse off, fill the tub, and have a luxurious soak. No, this isn't an actual Japanese bath...those are at other places, but this is a nice private bath experience. As for the Japanese toilet, feel free to experiment to find out what you need to get clean. Sit back far on the toilet so no water can spray out (that's where the 'horror stories' come from), and adjust the spray intensity, temperature, and location. Most toilets have some words in English. Just be sure to locate the STOP button before you start :-) You may never use toilet paper again. Many of the toilets you'll find in more public locations (not in the toilets in the hotel) also have a 'flushing sounds' button (often marked with music notes). Pushing this button makes noise - sometimes like running water, sometimes like a flushing toilet, and sometimes music. This is a very Japanese thing, and it's for when you don't want any noise from what you're doing heard by others. Apparently a while back, Japanese women were flushing the toilets continually while using them, and it was so pervasive that someone thought "hey, we need to put a music/flushing/water sound button on our toilets". Just one more interesting thing about Japan! Back to the hotel. Breakfast was included with our room, and the views from the top-floor restaurant were very nice. The buffet was very good, and a bit of everything: American/Western, Japanese/Korean, Chinese. Take a tray and chopsticks or silverware. There was juice (orange, grapefruit, mixed vegetable/fruit, and kale). Coffee and tea (more on this later). Salad, very little fresh fruit (lychee and cut-up grapefruit), yogurt with mango or kiwi "sauce" (puree; excellent), then...several soups (onion, miso), a small selection of cereal, bread, rolls, little apple or cherry pastries, with a toaster over to heat or toast, 2 kinds of 'hot pot', rice and curry, tofu, 2 types of dumplings, cold udon, and there was more...I can't remember it all but you will find something you like, and you can try a number of things here if you're not familiar with all the foods. Much of it had English labels. We ate modestly because our conference stuffed us the whole rest of the day, but there were tourists filling themselves before a long day, and if you ate well here you wouldn't need anything else until dinner. Lots of food. My one, really minor, complaint: the cups for the hot coffee/tea were tiny. This is really a minor thing, but I wound up making 2 cups of tea at a time and bringing them to the table. There was coffee to go as you left the buffet. There are 2 self-serve guest laundries in the hotel. I used them because we'd just come from a week in Tokyo, and stayed 9 days in Fukuoka (and wanted to pack light, knowing that hotels don't have drawers and places to put clothes). It was 200 yen for the wash and 200 (for 2 x 30 min) for the dryer. The instructions said, I think, that you didn't have to add laundry detergent. The second time I washed clothes I did add some, because I wasn't convinced the clothes were truly clean, but they did get some spots out. The washer didn't agitate really well (the folded shirts I threw in were still pretty much folded when they came out), but it did what needed to be done - the clothes were clean enough to wear. I needed 2 dryer runs, and the clothes still needed a little hanging to get truly dry, so consider the timing if you need to wear something quickly (or you may be wearing damp clothes). But I was thrilled to be able to do laundry, so I'm not complaining...just explaining. The hotel is about 1 km from Canal City (a shopping/restaurant mall with a free light/fountain show that you should see, and the Yatai "night market", which is a great thing to see (and get some delicious food from the stalls). Walking in the other direction is the underground Tenjin shopping mall, as well as several large depato (department stores). We didn't eat at the restaurant other than breakfast. There are conbini (convenience stores) close by in either direction, and there's a Don Quixote discount store 2 blocks away on the second floor (take the escalator from the street) of the Gates building. Want to bring back candy, cookies, snacks, alcohol, and maybe a magnet as a souveneir? Don Quixote is a great place to shop. Bring your passport if you'll purchase more than $50 (I think it's 50...check this) so you get the VAT returned to you onsite (you have to wait in a line, and they will pack all your goods into sealed bags). When we were getting the bottles of sake wrapped, I asked them to wrap them separately (so they didn't break in my checked luggage), and they did. They used some bubble wrap on the breakables (and we brought some of our own, knowing we'd buy glass bottles. The ume-sho (sweet alcoholic plum liquor, also available in peach (mo-mo)), comes in what look like 1-quart paper milk containers...those are great for packing. We also brought back some Japanese beer and several types of packaged sweets. You can buy these things in other places, but doing it all at once and getting the VAT back was great. Hotel is recommended for the clean, quiet, large rooms, the very good buffet breakfast, and the location (although anything near a metro stop in Fukuoka is a "good location").…
I stayed in 928 which is on the end, nice view, pretty quiet, reception staff follow the rules without exception, I have stayed here twice before, this time I arrived at 9 am, of course they don’t want to check me in even though my company uses them all the time and they have rooms available. I had come from Australia so 14 hours and pretty tired, I know that had rooms and when ashamed they said check in was at 1230, but for 3000 yen (41 AUS) (29US) they have a room, I paid it because I needed to rest, of course most people are checking out around this time and the cleaners are busy vacuuming and rattling garbage and trolleys outside my door to which I asked to be a bit quiet. I just feel they could have done a bit more.... I stayed one night and checked out at 8.30 am next morning. Very small room but it has everything in a compact way. Heated toilet seats with all the Japanese jet sprays etc, they now offer a free use of a cell phone for the city which is in your room. That’s pretty cool. The hotel is very central with a host of convenience stores at your door step as well as many many restaurants.…
pros location cleanish biggish room variety in breakfast cons not much, maybe coulkd hear too much the street and room didnt go 100% dark? some of the check in staff did not speak much english but then again, this is fukuoka, not tokyo
