4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2015

We stayed in a semi-double room here for 5 nights over the Christmas holidays. As other reviewers mentioned, the location is excellent: a 3-minute walk from Nakasu Kawabata station and a short subway trip or a 15-20 minute walk from the major shopping areas and transport hubs at Hakata and Tenjin. The hotel seems very well managed: our general impression... More

No, no ships in this area, only friendly and helpful staff in this business hotel, conveniently located near a subway station in the heart of Fukuoka. Decent breakfast buffet included. All you would expect from a hotel in this price range is available. English of the front desk is not perfect but this is Japan where there are always ways... More

I booked this hotel in desperation as a convergence of events in Fukuoka meant that rooms were filling quickly. The location may worry some as it is in the nakasu 'entertainment' and red light district. It is conveniently located to a subway stop. I stayed in a comfort single. The room was small but had everything I needed. The glassed... More

Dear Weegiewife, Thank you very much for choosing our hotel as your base in Hakata. And also, thank you for taking your time to write your review. As you mentioned in your review, we provide some single rooms with the glassed-in bathrooms. Our hotel is located in the centre of Hakata city. So our room size is not so large,... More

I stayed here with my partner in December 2013, as part of our tour of Japan. This hotel is in an excellent location in downtown Hakata, just around the corner from the main train station. We got the room at a very cheap rate (£27 or 4300Y for the night). We stayed for one night and didn't get breakfast in... More

Being from Europe I'm neither used to hotels with only 5-10% double bedrooms nor very small in rooms. However service is top notch like everywhere in Japan with very dedicated and service minded staff. Very centrally located. Rates very competitive.

Best Western is very close located in the 'red light district' of Nakasu. We booked a comfort twin room to have a little bit more space. Actually, we didn't understand why Best Western don't offer any room with a king size bed. The rooms are a bit old, many spots on carpet and wall also wallpaper pealing off. Because beds... More

This hotel is great for a visit to Fukuoka, as it is affordable by Japanese standards (probably pricey by other country's standards though), comfortable and very central, practically on the doorstep of the most central subway line. We stayed here for 8 nights in a semi-double room, and while the room is pretty small, it was fine for 8 nights.... More

I have chosen this hotel based on the price and location for my stay in fukuoka. The Hotel was spotless, the people very kind (as usual in Jp) and the breakfast basic but good enough to start the day. Ok the room was really really small, but I knew from the beginning and then I cannot complain at all about... More
