I like the hotel for the large room, convenience and the view. However there is improvement on the language capability of the staff. They gave us wrong direction on one restaurant and recommended another that is closed for that day. To double check you can use the tourists help at the train station.

If you're late booking a hotel in Hiroshima or Fukuoka, this place might be an option, since it is basically an extension of an important train station on the way. E.g Fukuoka is only 20' away by Shinkansen, and Onsen-heaven Beppu can be reached by Sonic train in less than two hours. However, this pseudo-chic business hotel (with additional hotel... More

Two things stood out for me: It has one of the most spacious bathrooms in Japanese hotels, an extensive amenities tray. It has an ice dispenser on our floor (23rd), from which I available myself to a bucket full of ice cubes. It is also connected to a 24hr convenience shop, in case you don't want to pay 'minibar' prices... More

A very good hotel adjacent to the Kokura station complex, I enjoyed my 4 night stay here...The rooms were well equipped and very clean with WIFI and thoughtful lighting and bathroom accessories. The toiletries were also good quality and especially the bead pillows were excellent. Breakfast had both Japanese and Western options, though I must say they repeated the menu... More

I stayed here for a conference, which was located at the nearby Kitakyushu International Conference Center. The cost for a room-night was amazingly low, close to $110/night including breakfast (estern and Japanese style).The staff were as helpful as possible and the usual Japanese over-service was evident. I did not dine in Naniwa, the main restaurant just off the lobby, but... More

I picked this hotel for the pool. However, no swimming before 11 AM. One day I took off an hour from business for a dip. I had to pay 21$, even though I am a long term guest. The rooms are good. The breakfast has a choice between Japanese and Western, good. There are three bars and lounges, but ALL... More

The location is great, being attached to the train station by a covered walkway, and just steps away from the shopping/eating area on the other side of the eki. The rooms are huge by Japanese standards, especially the bathrooms. The view is great. If you have plenty of room in your budget, it's the best hotel in town...and the hotel... More

I will admit that the hotel has perhaps been slightly smarter, and that in places it was slightly tired, but it was clean, the staff were helpful and the rooms, although small, were perfectly adequate. Being a tall westerner I did find some aspects of the room somewhat short, but that was never a problem, more a feature of interest.... More
