We stayed here for two nights this past May. An intimate and tranquil Japanese garden sits just outside the entrance to the ryokan, which is conveniently located near Hakata station and accessible by bus or taxi. The ryokan itself is efficiently run by a warm and hospitable staff that provided us with plenty of restaurant recommendations and directions. Given that it was Golden Week, we were worried that it would be exceptionally busy and privacy would be an issue, but it miraculously felt like we were the only people staying there. There were a number of bathrooms to choose from and the shower was very clean with excellent water pressure (we didn't make use of the Japanese style bath during our visit so can't comment on that). Our room was cosy and peaceful, and the tatamis which were laid out each night were quite comfortable; we slept wonderfully. We ordered the deluxe breakfast option and woke early to enjoy a fantastic meal in a private dining room with a great view of the sun-lit garden outside. Compared to other hotels that we stayed at during our trip, we much preferred the ryokan experience and will definitely look to stay here on our next visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Come to rest in our tiny yet superb Japanese Ryokan. One the first floor is our auberge restaurant where we serve our guests an originally cooked full course dinner. On the 2nd floor are our 5 guest rooms. Our Japanese style hotel has no private bathrooms nor toilets. It has been remodeled in 2004, but we kept the original style. This may be limiting, but we believe this keeps the spirit of a traditional Japanese ryokan.We are not perfect at speaking English, but we know about great service.
