I went Japan on my language and culture and technical training in Jun-2014. The hotel is one of the most grand I have ever seen. Also one of the thread festival Tana bata was going on which is writing your wish and tying onto one of the branches of the tree. The hotel people were glad to help you in... More

Breakfast buffet variety is also not too much . However , the room is still clean . The wall is also papery thin .Choose this hotel... More

This is my third time staying in this hotel, last time was 13 and 4 years ago. The hotel is a full scale international class setup, formal and decent. Right next to JR Kokura station, very easy to access. Also, just next to the JR station, are the food streets. Breakfast is nice and decent, rooms are large comparing with... More

This is my second long stay in this hotel. Room was larger than a normal japan hotel. Vey good size. Location is superb beside the station. On the second trip, service was lacking ie : no shower cap, cleaning was not complete with rubbish still on table. I was very surprise! For those who like whisky, they have a nice... More

Rooms were nice and clean. View was really great, as we stayed on 25th floor. However all the furniture and bathroom looked really aged, as they are there since hotel opened (no idea when that was, but not recently, that´s for sure). Tattoos are not welcome in hotel sauna, nor in the hotel pool. No possibility to negotiate, just zero... More

I was in Kitakyushu for a business trip and our rooms were reserved for us. It has quite comfortable and clean rooms.Rooms are not so large but don't forget that u're in Japan=) The best part of the hotel is its location: It's attached to the Kokura Station, it takes only 5 minutes by walk. You are also 10 minutes... More

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
