JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Fukuoka
Ranked #16 of 188 Hotels / Ryokan in Fukuoka
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We stayed in this hotel for our last night in Fukuoka after returing from Yufuin. We picked this hotel because of close proximity to Hakata subway station with reference to the room rate (room rate for Sat Night is too high!)
Location: No complaints at all...just 2 mins from the station exit. Convenience store is 10-meter away. Many Cafes and restaurants are located near the hotel.
Room: Good sized room. However, I do believe the bathroom needs some refubishment as it looks so dated.
Service: We was offered an-hour late check-out, so that we could do last minute shopping ^ ^
Overall, a good hotel in the Hakata Station area. However, there are probably better choices in the area for the similar price.

This is a new boutique hotel located near the Hakata train station. We were welcome warmly at the reception and was offered chairs to sit down. The room is very clean and the size is generous compared to standard Japanese hotels. The bed is a queen size and is very comfortable. The bathroom is nice and spacious and good quality toiletries are offered. There’s free wifi in the room but there was no safe in the room, which is unusual. The room rate is very reasonable. Would definitely stay here again the next time.

Though this hotel looks less glamorous than the official photos (rooms quite small though adequate) its location (5 minutes walk from Chikusu gate as you turn left from train station texit) and efficient service is hard to beat. Toiletries are generous (Jumbo-size Pola shampoo and conditioner, shower gel with royal jelly and olive oil, large fluffy towels and cotton pads for removing make-up), the humidifier a thoughtful addition and really everything you could possibly need. Breakfast is semi-buffet with a choice of fish or chicken for your rice and soup plus condiments and maitako, steamed tofu (cute little cakes served in a basket) and drinks to help yourself to. The only fruit supplied was grapes, but still a delicious and satisfactory breakfast.
There's a nice restaurant across the road serving chicken hotpot but reservations are required as the number of private rooms are limited, would have been nice for a cosy dinner without venturing to the station though there are lots of choices there as well.

Stayed for one night with my child in a standard double room. Right near by the Hakata JR Station and it took us about half an hour from Fukuoka International Airport (half of that time was actually spent taking the shuttle bus between the airport terminals). It's new and quite stylish, while the room was by the Japanese business hotel standard quite specious. Also the layout was well thought out and efficient. Decent bathroom and comfortable bed. I would stay again. Highly recommended.

Location couldn't be better if you want access to the Hakata Station. It is literally a 2-3 minute walk. Though it is in the business district, it's closeness to the Station is amazing. There are floors of eating and shopping located at the Station. You can catch the bus, the train and the subway there....even travel agency for your side trips.
The hotel is very modern ...including a bidet! The room is on the small side...but it has everything..wi-fi in the room, a small safe, TV...nice bathroom amenities.. Just don't bring more than one oversized suitcase. The closet was pretty small and drawer space was tiny. We lived out of a medium suitecase and a carryon. :-) If not for the small size, we would rate this as a 5.

Room Tip: Not sure....we had one that faced another building...no view. If you face the main road, you would...

I would recommend this hotel if you want
(1) most convenient location
(2) value for money yet decent hotel overall

Hotel is a easy 5 minutes walk from the city subway and the JR line to other part of Kyushu. The main bus terminal is just slightly further away from the subway.

As mentioned in the other reviews, it was easy to find food / groceries around the area. The hotel also provides laundromat for 300 yen with detergent automatically provided.

Though the twin room I stayed in show sign of ageing, it was clean and well maintained. Room size is quite good and no problem stowing away 2 big luggage.

Likes:
- Excellent location
- Clean room
- Helpful & polite staffs
- Value for money

Dislikes
- The sink is very low; I am just 160m tall but the sink is slightly lower than my waist

Have come to Fukuoka for a week festival and Blossom was picked for us in our package. After traveling around Japan for the last 10days we have found this hotel in a great location close to Hakata station and buses to Tenjin were only 100yen. Rooms are a decent size and breakfast downstairs was pleasant. Staff very helpful. Ask for wireless as they only have cables for laptops in your rooms. Would recommend this hotel.
