Had a wonderful stay here for two adults and one teenager. Great location close to the Kencho, rail station, and downtown Fukui. Breakfast was included in our rate and was definitely a first-rate meal -- local fish, noodles, etc.

If you get a chance, book the Japanese room (futons on tatami). In addition to the bedroom, it had a small room overlooking the old castle that doubled as my daughter's personal bedroom.

Limited English spoken, but enough to get by. We had a car and found easy, inexpensive parking nearby.

Room Tip: Check out the Japanese style rooms with futons on tatami mats

We arrived here after staying in a cramped hotel in Kyoto. Here our adult son had his own room. In Kyoto a small twin was squeezed into a triple. We enjoyed a larger twin room. Wonderful service, very clean rooms, older but still very well maintained. There was so much to do in Fukui despite other Japanese people not being aware of its attractions. We went to the Dinosaur musuem, visited an incredible working monastery that is perhaps one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, saw the Asakura Clan Ruins, and, our son revisited his high school exchange town. The Fukui Phoenix Hotel is very close to the railway station, has convenient car parking if you hire a car like we did and is close to eateries. We had a traditional breakfast everyday while there and it was a highlight. We loved our stay here and despite our lack of Japanese, we felt understood and welcomed.

We stayed here for one night.

Hotel is very close to the train station, approximately 5 mins walk.

Restaurants, cafes and shops are all within 10-15 walk. I'm sure there is transport, but we didn't use any since it's quite nice to walk and see what is around the place.

Check-in is nice and swift. Extremely polite and cheerful staff who spoke perfect English.

Don't expect a posh looking room. It's like a hotel room in early 90s, but it's well-maintained, spacious and clean!

Breakfast is the highlight. Japanese style breakfast where you a brought a tray with many little dishes, including pickles, fish to grill, a little barbecue set. Rice, soup, salad, juice, tea and coffee are served in a buffet style. Right amount of food so you won't be stuffing your face, yet everything is decent.

I'll come back to this hotel if I ever go to Fukui again.

Very Clean. Was greeted at the reception by a friendly staff. The entrance and the rooms are really clean, breath of fresh air, having just visited Kyoto in a non-smoking room, that smelt awful and made me sneezed.
