“Japanese efficiency”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014 via mobile

Reasonable size rooms by Japanese standards. Immaculately clean and furniture are in good condition.

Sauna is a good place to re-energize after a long day in winter Temperatures outdoor.

Coincidently located between hakata station and tenjinminomi the centre of night life.

Will return.

Excellent location near a famous shrine, small local shopping mall plus an exclusive gigantic shopping mall and not far from the exciting district of "Nakasu". The hotel has a built in convenience store on the first floor that makes the hotel look kind of shabby from the outside but once you're inside, it's very clean and modern and not shabby at all. Plus the convenience store is really "convenient" at your service. This hotel is equipped with "everything" you need to stay at a hotel. Great bed, mobile adapters, Wifi, toothbrush and toothpaste, hairdryer, washing machine that automatically has detergent included, dryer, simple restaurant, snack service for free, a real Japanese bath plus a normal clean shower room in your room, fridge and friendly helpful staff. It is also not far from the main station. A bit far to walk but it is possible if you don't have much luggage. We took a taxi and it did not cost much.
There is a café in the building next door to the hotel where you can have nice breakfast. I prefered their breakfast to the breakfast at the hotel. So you have very good options nearby. The shrine nearby is famous for bringing luck with your partner. So if you are looking for a partner or want to bless your relationship, go to this shrine in the evening. It's really beautiful.
The local small shopping mall next to this shrine is also fun to take a stroll. They have a super good 100 yen shop in there that I can recommend. For business or for tourists, this hotel is wonderful for people who want to have a practical and clean hotel that is not too expensive. We got a great price on booking.com.

Room Tip: We had a room at the very end of the corridor. After getting off the elevator, to the left and it wa...

We were lucky to get 3 rooms 2 days before our arrival as we wanted to experience another hotel apart from Hyatt Fukuoka. This is a much more personal hotel than the larger more businesslike ones. Rooms are small but self sufficient and clean, they even have a toiletries pouch for my 2 year old. Beds were a little cramped for 3 of us but it was very good value for a 2 night stay.

Relaxing to have a bath in a boutique business hotel (which probably explains the rather cramps bathrooms) and the breakfast spread is really good! Very short walk to Gion station and variety of restaurants within walking distance. Front desk even had a printed guide on all the restaurants from cheap to high end ones.

24hr supermarket and Canal City is only a 7 min walk away. Will definitely recommend for business and family travellers (not sure if you can add an additional bed though). Friendly staff , definitely highly recommended!

We love the Dormy chain when we go to Japan and this was typical of their offerings - small cozy but very clean rooms, good quality beds, good service, good breakfasts and relaxing hot baths (though the outdoor one was a bit smaller than usual). Ask for a quiet room that does not face the main roads. Do not miss the ramen place kitty-korner just across the street. The front desk can guide you. It's also a stone's throw from the Gion subway station (which can take you to the airport) and 10-15 minute or so walk to the main entertainment district. By all means, if you want to try sake and good food, stop by these two sake bars - Sake Dining Sagakura (with a great selection of sakes only from Saga prefecture) and Washudokoro Shuho (which has a broader selection from across the country, but is a bit more expensive)

Arrived October 21, 2013 (2 nghts)

For the price, this hotel located about a ten minute walk from the train station was excellent value. Our room had a comfortable double bed, a small fridge and a good shower. We booked through the AGODA website.

I am a frequent Japan traveler and tried this new property with great success. Beware: There are two Dormy Inn's in Hakata! Cab drivers may take you to the "Premium Dormy"....but this is the Dormy GION and the better choice. The Onsen, or hot baths are some of the most beautiful-private for men and women and fed by a Hot Springs; don't miss this great way to unwind in the evening (morning is crowded.) Noodle/Ramen bar; great location-don't miss the big golden Buddha made from wood and the "karmic path" behind it, and the wonderful temple next door with the temple cat guarding the door. This is right across from the MBT shoe store (great shoes) and the Flea Market of course is a must for first time travelers and Kushida Shrine is part of that complex. The Hotel Chisun was torn down and this was an excellent choice and very reasonable in price. Book a double even if you are staying by yourself for more space. (This confuses the Japanese, but worth the explanation that you want more space.) Book early. Popular.

Room Tip: Book a double. Baths are on 2nd floor.

The location was fantastic. Only a minute walk to Gion station and 15 minute to the airport from the station. A convenience store was attached to the foyer, a good size supermarket was 5 minute walk (opposite direction to the station). The room was cozy, the bed was comfy, a funny thing is the toilet roll holder was hard to use. I loved the ONSEN. I could stay there for hours!! I used the bath in the evening and also in the morning. There were also a couple of washing machines and washing detergent that you can use for free, there was a small charge for the dryers. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. All the food I had was delicious, but the coffee could be better. The biggest disappointment was all rooms were non-smoking and there was a smoking booth on the floor I stayed. I had to get dressed every time I fancied a cigarette. Overall, I had a great stay and will stay there again.
