“Great for English Speaking Guests”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I stumbled upon this hotel online and made a booking as it is the closest hotel to Fukuoka train station, its also close to the castle that i wanted to visit. I must say that i only ever write reviews if the service is either exceptional good or exceptionally bad - in this case the help i received from the hotel was great. Its one of the few hotels i have stayed with in Japan where the staff speak English which was really helpful for getting around town and getting travel advice.

Make sure you take the cable car up the mountain, its really good and the hotel organized it for me. As for the rooms they would as you would expect in a decent budget hotel - the good thing is that the price of the hotel (i paid sub $100 a night) makes it a great option for backpackers or those visiting Japan on a budget. Stay here :-)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2010

The staff are very nice. Communicate in simple english is OK. Although their english may not be that good but you can see they are trying their very best to talk to you in english. Though the decoration of the room is a bit old, it's clean and bigger than other business hotels that I have stayed before. Free breakfast: Bread, salad, spagatti and curry rice. Not much choices but good quality. The price is very reasonable and is just 1 min walk from Kokura Station Shinkansen Guchi. Highly recommend for budget travellers.
