To me to find a hotel room in Hakata over the weekend at a right price seems to be very difficult so far and this time it was next to impossible. So what to do... Solution was to go to Kokura which is only one station away by Shinkan-sen! (If you have Japan RailPass it would cost you nothing and traveling time is only about 20 min.!)
I have stayed in Tokyu-Inn in various locations in the past and normally they offer good service and the price for a night. And this Tokyu-Inn Kokura Kokura-eki Minami-guchi was not the exception.
Location is close to the Station (ca 5 min. walk); the staff is friendly and efficient. Room is standard (as in all the Tokyu-Inns) but everything is there (see photo). The room charge includes simple breakfast (don't expect too much!)
At the end of the day I saved a lot and I could go to Hakata for the meeting and the dinner.More
