“Convenient and sufficient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

As a frequent traveler to Kokura, my travel agent referred me to this hotel near the train station. I arrived during an autumn rainstorm generated by a regional typhoon, and the hotel's location about one block away from the Shinkansen side of the station was an advantage. The desk staff spoke adequate English, and they were helpful. The room on the 8th floor was clean, basic and typical for a business traveler's single occupancy lodgings. My room overlooked an adjacent parking lot and a view of the elevated Shinkansen approach platform. The room window was thankfully heavy enough to suppress the noise from the trains, but train noise was still audible in the room when the TV wasn't playing. My room was not located at the end of the hallway closest to the train tracks, so train noise might be a factor for guests who occupy rooms at the opposite end of the hallway from the elevators. Internet service was included in the room price, but it is provided by a LAN cable from the desk. I use a portable router to generate my own wi-fi network for my laptop, tablet and smartphone, but travelers who do not bring their own router might find the absence of room wi-fi signal an inconvenience. As indicated by other reviewers of this hotel, the daily breakfast is only adequate. The menu is identical each day, and the type and selection of items is limited. Thus, I deducted one rating point for this deficiency. I would still recommend the hotel for its overall convenience.
