Stayed two nights in a twin room. The room was spacious and clean. Wifi was fast but there were only two electrical outlets. The bathroom is small but functional. The Onsen was very busy as this is a businesshotel and the men's Onsen only has limited space. Breakfast was rather simple. Parking was free. Would stay here again.

博多のホテルが高かったので、呼子に朝から向かう予定でこちらに前泊しました。都内のビジネスと同等の狭さですが寝る分には十分です。大浴場は思ったよりも狭くて洗い場が四、五人分しかないのでご注意ください。 Because hotels in Hakata were expensive, we stayed here on the way to Yobuko. The room is as narrow as a business hotel in Tokyo, but enough for sleeping. There are only 4, 5 wash places in the public bath space.

The hotel is 10-minutes walk down the JR Watada Station. Showa bus stop just a few steps away. We had a double room at the 9/F with great view at night : overlooking the Karatsu Castle on the left, the Nijino Matsubara on the right, and the gorgeous lit-up bridge in the centre. 20-30 minutes walk and you can reach JR Karatsu Station. Although not in the downtown, there are Lotteria and Joyfull restaurants within walking distance. Same as other Japanese hotels, the room is small and the double bed only good for Asians. The room itself clean and tidy, with tiny fridge, small washroom but with bath tub, steady WIFi signals etc. Highlight of the room is the massage chair, unseen in other Japanese hotels of this price range. We were told there was an onsen but had no time for spa during our short stay in Karatsu. We stayed on 1 April 2018, when the temperature is around 24-25C. The cooler of the central air-con was not working and only the heater was on. The hotel staff was unable to provide any assistance. We noted that the windows of all rooms beneath our's were opened wide, we turned off the heater and did the same. This hotel used the same type of coin-operated washing machine as other Kyushu counterparts within similar price range. However, their price per cycle was more expensive and extra money was needed for laundry powder (other hotels provided the laundry powder free-of-charge). Good for short stay in Karatsu given the price paid. Recommended.

The hotel located on the good location. Have their own parking lots. Closed with 24 hr. restaurant. All room facilities included electricity massage chair which made you relax. And you can see the nice view bridge and Karatsu Castle from your window.

The hotel is located right in front of the waters and our room had a really nice view on the top floor, overlooking the famous stretch of forest, and the castle. Free parking onsite. Staff was very nice and helpful. Onsen was a bonus, small but functional. We had a double room which was very very small, but clean and tidy. If your budget allows, I suggest you go for a twin room. Breakfast was ok. We paid a decent rate, so overall, no complaints. We had a rental car, so it was very easy for us to drive to the busy area near JR station where all the restaurants are.
