Canal City Fukuoka Washington Hotel
Ranked #47 of 188 Hotels / Ryokan in Fukuoka
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The hotel is well located in the canal city shopping center. With direct access to canal city, 100 yen bus opposite hotel and subway about 10 min walking, this hotel is well located in Fukuoka.
The room and bath room are basic , nothing luxury.
I would stay here again or chose Grand Hyatt next door if you want more luxury and have higher budget.

The hotel room was so small that I immediate ran down to the front dest upon arrival. They told me it was a "Double", it was 14 sq feet in total!! Still, there is some good point of this hotel: location is very good, a big shopping mall in the same building, lots of shops, and your breakfast coupon is good is some of the restaurants in the shopping mall. ( and it was written in Japanese that if you dont want your breakfast, you can use the coupon to exchange for som instant noodle at the front dest when you check out, which is very thoughtful).
As in 99% of Japanese hotel, this one is also very clean , we were also mistakenly placed in the smoking level (the hotel was fully booked during our New year holidays there), but the air was ok.
Lots of things to see within walking distance, the shrine, the canal....!
I would not stay in this hotel again, due to the small room size. But if you are looking for a clean budget hotel with good service, good location, then I highly recommend this hotel~

Room Tip: choose higher floor, there is no high building around, so althought you cannot see the canal, still...

This was not my first time in a Japanese hotel, so I knew what to expect in terms of room size. I was however, startled to view the cupboard-size room that had been prepared for our stay. There was nothing "studio" about the "studio twin" and when I enquired if they had put us in the correct room, I was informed "yes sir, the twin studio is a single room with two beds". Anyone who has seen the diminutive state of a Japanese single room can only imagine the gymnastics required to navigate a single room with two beds,one of which was not even a bed but a hastily arranged couchette- type sofa with a sheet.
This was just the beginning however, as we discovered that even though you may request a non-smoking room, your neighbours may indulge, leading to smoky corridors. Despite numerous attempts to find the main light switches, we discovered that the only way to turn off the main lights was to remove the key card from its holder beside the door, and turning off the power for the room. But this meant no air conditioning. If that's a deliberate policy in reducing the hotel's power bill, it's a pretty cunning one. We were awoken in the morning to the bizarre strains of Strauss's Blue Danube Waltz to mark the hour, which blasted around the hotel complex. A strange self-service machine awaits the deposit of your card which is supposed to issue a receipt showing the time and date of one's departure. When this failed to happen, we informed reception who told us somewhat nonsensically "We cannot give you a receipt".... !???? The convenient location of this hotel is often lauded, yet a hotel in the Tenjin section of town is far better for shopping and especially nightlife.
