Good hotel but need improvement”

Nice inferior, quiet, staff friendly

Although I booked it for a very very cheap price(5800¥ for twin!), it provide me an stunning city view top floor corner window room which I think normal price need about 20000¥? The room size isn't ot very big but enough for you expend your luggage well, as we booked a non smoke room it have zero smell, and you can feel the cleaness of room once you lay on the bed without any sticky feeling. As I likely to walk around on steeet, five minutes to subway and about 15-30 mins footway to downtown is ok for me, but if you need just downstairs then shopping, pick another hotel. Everything is well expect the email handling. i sent one Japanese and one English email to enquiry some information to hotel mailbox that I found on APA GROUP website two weeks before. And I have zero reply even now. That's the only point I have to reduce the mark.

Near Supermarket”

Reasonable Price, near Supermarket

I have stayed here for 2 nights. The location is not far from the train station. If you travel by bus, is very good choice to stay here. If you decide to travel by train, it is not a good choice to stay here. The train station that near the hotel is Watanabedori, this station need to transfer at Tenjin station. You have to walk more than 10min to get another station then to reach the train to Watanabedori. About the room, there are many amenities in the room provided, clean, reasonable price. I stayed at non-smoking room.

Beautiful hotel, close to JR station and buses”

Close to tourist areas, close to public transportation, comfortable room

The hotel is great - definitely better than 2 stars. It's only 1 km from the JR station (we walked), and also a very close walk to some central areas in the city. It is very inconvenient to get from and to the airport, though, so if you are flying in AND out of Fukuoka, I would stay somewhere else.

Good location”

Basically there are many bus stops surround this hotel which make it easier to travel around. Buses to hakata station, tenjin station, even as far as to marinoa outlet city. Staffs are generally friendly but need to improve their basic English skills. Other than that, they are all very helpful and provide good service. Bed too soft and pillow too flat.

Spacious, clean and affordable ”

In terms of location, its is just a subway station away from the main area of Tenjin. But, aside from the Watanabe-dori subway, there are plenty of buses towards the city centre. It is also walkable, taking about 20 minutes. The room and bathroom are spacious and cleaning services are first class. The hotel is next to a marketplace where you can get daily necessities conveniently.

Comfortable room size with good and convenient location ”

- Location is great. Airport Bus just across the hotel, takes about 25 mins direct from airport to the hotel. 24 hrs Sunny supermarket and Lawson just besides the hotel. There are wet market besides and across the hotel as well. 10 mins walk to Tenjin Station and 15 mins walk to Hakata Station and Canal City. - Room considered big in Japan. . - Almost all the staff are not fluent with English, however they will still try to assist. We arrived early at 11am, they are unable to check us in, so we went for breakfast and have a walk around the hotel with our 12 months baby. (however they are able to assist to keep/place our luggages at the lobby)We came back again at 1pm, hopefully they will assist so that our baby can rest after a long night, however they can't accommodate and we waited till 2.45pm and saw a guy able to check in, then we asked and managed to checked in. It will be nice and appreciative if the staff takes the initiative to offer us as we were at the lobby.

Convenient Business Hotel close enough to Tenjin”

Clean, Convenient Location, Supportive Staff

The location is not bad, it is next to Watanabe-Dori station, only 1 station away from TENJIN STATION, the main business area. Or it is only like a 15-20 minute by walk to TENJIN and taxis easy enough to get from there. It is also across from NEW OTANI, so its easy to find the location. The room was very clean and conveniently provides the necessary ammenities as a good business hotel. The staff was very friendly and supportive, but their English is weak. I can speak Japanese ok so for me it was no problem, but I noticed other non-Japanese speaking foreigners having some challenges with the check-in staff. Overall I thought the room fit my needs and very comfortable. However, I believe the price was slightly high for what you get. Additionally the morning breakfast did not appeal to me.

Not a good hotel brand”

The hotel has seen better days and the facilities leave much to be desired. The breakfast did not change the entire week we stayed. The bathroom was old and full of grout and the shower curtain looked like it had moulds. Our duvet had holes from cigarette burns, even if we were staying in a non smoking room. Wifi was weak and would just shut off at times. The front desk staff was the worst, very unaccommodating and except for one male staff who went out of his way to be nice, the rest were unsmiling and unhelpful. The lady manager was specially rude -- very strange for Japan but maybe par for the course for the APA -- and she knew just one word of english , "NO". The saving grace was the quiet and convenient location, very near the bus stop and within walking distance to the Tenjin area. The rates do not justify the kind of service and the facilities you get. This put me off APA all together. Oh and one more thing -- I think that the water bottles with the photo of the owner on the label and hawking her special "curry dish" on the front desk counter unbelievably tacky and cheap.

Good for the price”

Perfectly acceptable for the price. Room was larger than some Japanese hotels i.e. we could both stand up at the same time. Staff always helpful. A few nice touches such as free bottles of water if we did not insist on replacing linen every day. Only drawback is we were there in rather hot weather but there was no air conditioning. Winter, and thus the central heating, lasts until May. Common sense does not overcome the rules!

Apart from the location, this hotel is just average”

The chandelier of the hotel lobby makes it look grand yet quite dark inside. The rooms are small, with the lighting very dim. It doesn't look very new, but overall it's clean. It's in a hub of hakata city, taking about 20mins to JR station, MTR station and Tenjin area. Recommended to those tourists with less expectation.
