We stayed here on the first and last day of our Kyushu trip. This property is excellent value for your money. The rooms are small (typical Japanese, yet very functional), with empty fridge so you can stock up with cheap drinks from the adjoining Family Mart downstairs. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. There is a free self-service tea/coffee machine in the lobby, a free onsen in the hotel and free ramen offered during the evening (not as tasty as a bowl of famous Ippundo ramen, but hey, it's free). It's between Hakata and Tenjin (walkable to both), and it's right outside the Gion subway station should you opt to skip the walk. The staff in the lobby spoke decent English too. The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was that they offered these weird-looking pj for using the onsen, instead of traditional Japanese Yukata robes!

Good location between Tenjin and Hakata. Well-equipped hot spring and sauna in the hotel, which you can enjoy any time from 3pm to 10am. Free LAN Internet available in rooms. The only downside was that the on-site parking was expensive. Also, they don't have usual cotton yukata that is common in Japanese hotels, providing only ill-fitting polyester t-shirts and pants!

I chose this hotel because of the good Trip Advisor rating which I agree. It is conveniently located. The staff speaks limited English and was helpful. I travelled with my family and we loved the hot baths within the hotel. We arrived at the hotel in late evening and had time to enjoy a bowl of free plain noodle at the restaurant. They serve typical Japanese style breakfast with limited western food. The rooms are small by western standard but are comfortable. The hotel price is reasonable.

This 8 story hotel is located within 5 walking minutes from the Hakata train station. The staff speaks English and there is a convenience store in the lobby. The hotel has a onsen hot water bath on the second floor offered free of charge to guests. Rooms are small according to US standards, but it is clean and comfortable. The hotel plays piped in Classical music in the lobby which I found comforting but odd since you're in Japan and expect Japanese music.

Three of us spent four days here in early August. The hotel justifies it's Tripadvisor 2012 award and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is about 150 yards from Gion subway station and we didn't have any trouble finding it. From the international ferry terminal, where we arrived (from Korea), the number 88 bus stops near Gion station and costs Y180; the only problem being that there is no international ATM at the ferry terminal, so you have to walk out to the nearest Seven Eleven to get cash, unless you already have Yen on arrival. We found the hotel location to be very good, between the main centres of Hakata and Tenjin (walkable to either, but not with heavy bags), near the river and to some lively nightlife areas.
Rooms are not large but are well designed and equiped, with tastefully minimalist decor, and the beds are comfortable. Large screen TV, small fridge, ioniser and hairdryer all provided.
I didn't initially book breakfast, as Y1200 seemed expensive; having dicovered that it costs Y500 for a coffee and at least another Y500 for a cake or a juice in Fukuoka, I decided to try the breakfast on day two and, once tried, it was obvious that this was the best option. A huge range of interesting Japanese and western style foods is available, the coffee is very good and you can eat as much or as little as you want, which set us up nicely for the day. In the evenings, between 9.30 and 11pm, the restaurant serves free ramen noodles - very useful if you didn't quite manage to get the food order right at dinner time, or if you choose to sample some of the snacks available from mobile vans (an interesting Fukuoka institution) and need to fill up before bedtime.
The 'natural hot spring baths' on the hotels second floor are an excellent free facility for guests and much more fun than the admittedly small shower cubicles in the rooms. In early August Kyushu daytime temperatures were around 35C, so it was a treat to be able to cool down, clean off and relax each evening in the baths. Two hot pools plus a cold plunge pool and a sauna, along with numerous showers, supplied with good quality gel, shampoo, conditioner, hair tonics etc and a changing room with fans, mirrors and hairdryers.
Finally, the staff in the restaurant, baths and reception were unfailingly polite and helpful. I would not hesitate to return here if I am in Fukuoka again.
