“Just another Average Hotel, but Cheap”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Stayed for the last night of my trip in October 2011. Excellent location, cheap price (Costed me about 50$ per night). In the center of the city with a metro station relatively close. Nothing special, just another no frills business hotel, if you are looking for a place just to sleep.

Room Tip: No frills place.

We stayed at the b hakata in late Dec and though rooms are small, they are clean and equipped with the usual amenities (toothbrush, shaver, comb) and for ladies who need shower cap, these are available at the reception desk.. The hotels is located 8 mins walk from Hakata station and very convienient if you plan to move around Kyushu. Breakfast is decent and would recommend given it's resonable rates.

we stayed in b Hakata in late Sept, it has quite new interior, but rooms are typically small in japan, so its definitely nothing very comfortable or lavish, and in terms of location its around 5 mins walk from hakata station, a definite stay for those we travel on a budget. there is a coffee machine in the lobby and nearby convenience store around 1 min walk from the hotel, in summary b hakata won't disappoint you!

It is about 6mins walk from Hakata station to the hotel.
Although the rooms were small, but it was clean and comfortable.

I think there's free wifi in the lobby area since I saw some people sitting at the lobby accessing internet on their mobile phones. Not 100% sure about this though.

I love the free coffee at the reception area. Helps to keep me warm esp during the winter.

The hotel is also near to a convenience store (Lawson I think)

5 min walk from Hakata station. Single room was small but manageable. Modern interiors and finishings. Free coffee machine in lobby was a winner.

Conveniently located close enough to the Hakata train station. You should really consider catching a cab instead of hoofing it. The lobby is very nice. The front desk staff are not very friendly and the two males and one female working behind the desk did not speak English. The rooms are very small. Ok if you are traveling alone or if you want to be very cozy with your partner. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet in the hotel. I think it was about $8. Bargain! I would not stay here again. For the price, wasn't worth it.

Thank you for taking the time to review "the b hakata".

As you have highlighted, the hotel is very close to the Hakata Shinkansen (Bullet Train) and local train stations. To walk from the station takes about 4 minutes.

We were most disappointed to hear that you wouldn't return and found the the staff not friendly. We are extremely sorry you experienced a negative stay and believe this is an isolated experience.

We were pleased you found the breakfast both enjoyable and well priced.

Best regards
