“Convenient location”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The hotel is located approx. 5mins walk from Hakata station and Yodobashi store. It is also an approx. 10-15 mins walk to Grand Canal. And for guests with handful of luggages, it's a short (less than 10 mins) cab ride to the airport.

The reception staff speaks little English but are generally friendly and helpful. We have only encountered one unhelpful female receptionist who mainly suggested we go to Hakata station's tourist information counter for help.

Similar to many feedbacks, the room is clean, neat and decor is as new. Downside is the room size which is small. We have to be creative in placing the luggages, bags & any new purchases. Bed mattress is slightly hard. Complimentary wireless wifi are available in the room.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to those who wants to be near Hakata station or the airport. And would stay in The b Hakata during my next visit.

I stayed in the b Hakata in Tokyo some years ago and the experience was great. Thus, I booked this hotel and looked forward to the same experience. However, it was not as great as I'd imagined. Well, I may have set the standard too high. In general, this is a standard japanese hotel at good location, i.e. great service and clean rooms. I had a pleasant stay here.

Located 10 minutes walk from Hakata Station the B Hotel is a handy place to stay. The room is remarkably small! So you will need to be travelling light. The amenities and bathroom are adequate. The bed is very small for two.
Breakfast got us started for the day and was a mix of western and Japanese options.
The Reception staff spoke English quite well and were able to quickly resolve a problem with the booking.
The local area is quiet after dark and has lots of little restaurants in the side streets and close to the station.

Room Tip: From the floor plan they are all small - hope you are too!

I've stayed here three times and every time it's fantastic!

The atmosphere is great, nice design and decorating, and it feels like it should be much more expensive than it actually is.

Of course the rooms are small but it's Japan, so it's like that everywhere you go.

Location is fantastic and very near to Hakata Station which is excellent. I've also stayed at The B in Kobe and Ikebukuro but this one is much better.

This is a really great hotel to stay in. Though small, it offered me the comfort of being home away from home. The room was very clean and furniture efficiently placed. It's also very near the Hakata station and several good eats as well. I would definitely go back for a stay!

Good price, clean, good location - not too painful to lug bag to hakata station. Size is small (double bed) as expected. For its price, it's a go. I reserved directly from its website. Did not try breakfast, it costs very reasonable at 700 though.
