The great advantage for this hotel is location. It's very near to Hakata Station, just cross the street. So, you can easily travel to anywhere from Shinkansen, JR and subway. If you take bus from airport to Hakata station, this hotel is opposite to bus top at the station. It's very convenient for all especially for tourist with big luggage....

This hotel is directly opposite Hakata Station and the walk takes 3 to 5 minutes, which makes for a convenient location. The guest room is smaller compared to other hotels I have tried in Kyushu. The bathroom is exceptionally small and hard to manage. Shiseido bathroom supplies are available. The hotel has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner....

This is a budget hotel in an excellent place! Just across the street from the JR railway and a subway station, just in the city center. In terms of its location, you can't do better. Rooms, however, are very small, even smaller that I was used to in Japan. We also had a problem with a booking, as we paid...

The hotel is located just across the Hakata JR station. There is also an underground access to the hotel but this route is rather difficult to locate from the Hakata station. The staffs are helpful and polite. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel where we had our breakfast. There were normally three choices: Japanese style breakfast with fish...

The hotel is closely located to JR Hakata Station (Shinkansen Station) There are malls around and there is even a convenience store just across the hotel. The room is standard Japanese style. What I like most is the robes they provided for us (feels so Japanese, what a warm welcome for our Japan trip). There is a Shiseido dispenser inside...

The location is really good as it only takes two minutes from the JR station. They serve set-breakfast instead of buffet breakfast. There are three regular choices available, one western and two Japanese style. Considering the location and quality, the rent is really reasonable. I would choose to stay at this hotel for my future trip in Hakata.
