It looks like I'm going to be the first one to write an English review on this hotel.
The taxi driver had a little bit of trouble to find the hotel coming from the train station but we eventually found it, right on the river, facing Canal city, a huge shopping mall with tons of restaurants and shops. (1000 yen for the cab ride).
The hotel didn't look busy at all, but we still had to wait until 3 o'clock before getting our room, which was of course inconvenient. So we went to have lunch at Canal city (about 5 to 7mn walk).
We came back at 3 and our room was ready with our luggage already in the room. The hotel is nicely designed and the room was beautifully done. However, it was really small. We had room 401, but according to the floor plan, it was the smallest room by far on that floor because of the elevator. We were right next to it but couldn't hear any noise.
There was a great king size bed with a couple of small chairs with a great view of the river and the huge Coca-Cola sign (just close the curtains at night).
All the furniture was really nice, with a great TV and great bathroom (with super nice bath products). The only downside was the small size but it was acceptable for one night.
I'm not sure now, but at the time, there was no English web sites for the hotel, so I made a reservation using Expedia hoping for the best. So I can't tell if we had the tiny room because of the price we paid. (it was 141$ Canadian for the night so it was a good price, no breakfast).
The taxi fare to the airport was 2400 yen and it was about a 20mn drive.
Overall, it was an excellent priced option for one night in Hakata/Fukuoka, with great access for diner or lunch, or even shopping, movies. Great way to finish our trip.
