Our room was dated, OLD CARPET, BAD SMELL. Dust everywhere. The beach, pool and stores inside the hotel are great
Very clean and room well designed. Convenient location. The breakfast is excellent.
Staff: very nice Room: a few hair were on the bathroom floor when I got there, but overall clean Washer/Dryer in every room 👍👍 Breakfast buffet: many pretty tasty Japanese and non-Japanese food to choose from I will stay again!!
It’s a 10 minute walk from the Hakata Station and there is plenty of shopping and eateries all around this centralised area. The hotel is standard for Japan. Room is not big but you should know what you’re in for when it comes to room size here. The hotel is clean, safe and the staff are very accommodating. ...
Of all the hotel I stayed around the world. This is simply the best.
