“Business Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This hotel is located in Kitakyushu, a rather small and quiet city. As the story goes, this city was once so polluted in the 1940s that the WWII pilots could not see the city and they went ahead to drop the Bomb on Hiroshima! I initially reserved a single room but it was so small, like a box room. I then upgraded myself to a suite which of course is much more comfortable (see the pictures which I have also uploaded). From the room, we can have a good view of the Space World. The hotel appears quiet and deserted in the night and there is hardly any entertainment within and near the hotel. The staff, unfortunately, could not converse in English but they are courteous and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Four years ago when I first came to Japan, I only ate at the restaurant on the 13th floor, but I did not know how great this place was up until my recent stay this earlier this month.(September 2012). The hotel was great because we really nice room for the first couple of nights, but the day of the wedding we got upgraded to a suite on the 12th floor. The rooms was so spacious and really nice, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
As for the wedding part it was 10 times better than our wedding in the United States. I felt like from the time we first met the wedding staff, to actual wedding, and finally our goodbyes we felt like royalty.
A job well done for the staff that made our day happens.
