We stayed at the B Hakata Hotel for three nights. Thr hotel is very close to Hakata Station. From Hakata Station exit through the Chiusi Gate, walk to main road, turn right. When you see the Richmond Hotel on your left, cross the road at the crossroads and walk up the side street to your left, the B Hakata is just past the Familymart and Japanese School of Home Baking.
Check in was quick, efficient and friendly. We had a double room which was small but much bigger than the one we stayed in for the first three nights of our stay. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable. There was an open wardrobe space and two drawers. A kettle and tea bags were provided. Coffee was available free 24 hours a day from a machine in the lobby. There was no safe in the room, but safety deposit box was available at reception.
There were large refillable bottles of liquid soap, shampoo, conditioner. Toothbrushes/toothpaste, razors and hair brushes were provided.
The hotel was very close to a Family Mart convenience store. There was a Chinese restaurant further along the street. It was very convenient for Hakata Station - great for us as we were travelling around on a Kyushu Rail Pass at this point. Hakata station also had great idiot proof I speak no Japanese restaurants with plastic food displays. We had a very nice curry in San Marco Restaurant there and I did not even know the Italians were noted for curries.
We had breakfast included in our deal - coffee, orange juice, water, scrambled egg, other variable hot item - one day was braised vegetables, another was pork dumplings, then new vegetable offering, toast, salad, steamed rice, miso soup pickles. It was OK. We always had enough to eat. I would happily stay here again. Our room window faced a brick wall - no view but also no street noise.
This was our first experience of staying in a Toyoku Inn Hotel. THe Toyoko Inn Hakata-eki Minami Hotel is located around 10 minutes walk from Hakata Station. Exit the east gate of the station, walk to the main road, turn right and walk for around 10 minutes. There is also a free shuttle which picks people up from the east gate and drops them at the hotel.
Check in was quick, efficient and friendly. The receptionist who dealt with us spoke excellent English. We were offered a membership card for Toyoku Inns which we did not take, though to be honest it may have been a good deal and these hotels are found all over Japan, I believe.
Our room was a reasonable size for a Japanese hotel room bearing in mind that none of them are ever very big. The double bed was reasonably comfortable - slightly hard (also normal for Japan). There was a narrow wardrobe strangely positioned right at the end of the bed. To get to the far side of the bed you had to squeeze round this. There was a window that was actually a mirror so there was no outside light. I slid the mirror panels along and discovered an opaque window behind which could not be opened.While I prefer natural light, I guess at least it was nice and dark at night. There was a hot water ring and pot in the room. There was no in room safe.
Toiletry packs were handed to us at check in. These contained shampoo, conditioner sachets, hair bands, hair clips and soap. In the room there were toothbrushes, small toothpastes and razors.
The toilet had a small bath and shower and the usual style Japanese toilet. Everything was clean.
The hotel was quiet at night and I was sleeping soundly until about 3am when some American tourists decided to start screaming at each other in the corridor. I don't imagine this is a normal occurence or the hotel's fault.
Breakfast was included in our deal. There was miso soup, boiled rice, rice cakes, a selection of green vegetables such as okkra and broccoli, sweet potatoes and meat balls. There was also plenty of tea and coffee. There were bread rolls and bread for toasting. One strange thing was that despite there being bread and butter there were no knives available. The butter came in a packet that was half jam and half butter you folded it in the middle and the jam and butter mixed together and poured out onto your bread. Not being a fan of jam I thought this was pretty yeuky myself.
Check out was until 10am and was quick, pleasant and efficient. All hotel staff were friendly and pleasant. There was a free coffee dispenser at reception and some slot machines for drinks. There was a Lawson convenience store near the hotel and the hotel was handy for Hakata Station. I would stay here again or try some of the other hotels in this group.

This is good for a short stay, especially if you're planning to catch an early bus (or train) out of town. Still a great choice for shopping-maniacs, who plan for a 'shop-till-u-drop' thing!! The room might not be very spacious or full-functioned, and some even has no windows, but for it's great location and really affordable price (from 4000Y/person)
For those who cares for upper-class modern-world hotel, I really recommend this one. It maybe a little distance from downtown, the nearest Subway Station (Tojinmachi) is around 15 minutes walk away. But if you don't mind using the public bus, the bus stop is at your doorstep. The most impressive thing about this hotel is that you can see the endless shoreline right from your window. Peaceful surroundings, just 10 minutes from the famous 1st-stop Fukuoka Tower along the seaside Momochi.

Hawks Town Mall, Hard Rock Cafe and many more
The hotel itself has more than 10 choices of restaurants, Japanese Bath, Swimming Pool, Wide-screen TV + LAN for laptops, room-service massage,...
Was pleased to get a nice quaint room to myself when I got to hostel/hotel after a long sleepless overnight flight. Bathroom, TV, teapot, phone, desk... Price is more expensive than the usual hostel but it's great if you want a cheap single room.
Ryokan are Japanese guest houses. If you want a truly "Japanese" experience, then I suggest you try to stay in at least one Ryokan while in Japan. They are ususally tatami rooms (grass mats) where you sleep on bedding on the floor. Although to some people this will sound like a horrible experience, I can tell you that it's very comfortable and usually the service is fantastic.
When you arrive at a ryokan, they will usually show you to your room and the bedding will be laid out on the floor. There is usually a fresh pot of tea and maybe a few biscuits waiting for you. Traditionally, you roll the bedding up in the morning and put it away. But I've found that in some ryokans, there is no shelf to put the bedding on. In that case, I'd simply fold it and put it to the side of the room.
The ones that I've stayed at usually have either a room & meal option or a room only. I've always gone for the room only option for monetary reasons. But friends have told me that the meals are usually a traditional japanese meal of miso soup, rice, fish, etc. Although I've never tried them first hand, I'm sure through japanese culture in general that it will be delicious & a feast for both the taste buds & eyes.
Most Japanese Ryokan are centered in Kyoto (the old capital). But you can find them pretty much anywhere in Japan. One of the best websites to use is the Ryokan Network.
If your Ryokan has an Ofuro, definitely TRY IT! It's one of the best things about a traditional Ryokan. An Ofuro is a japanese-style bath. The most important rule to remember is NEVER get into a japanese bath without washing first. You will usually find a small shower and maybe a bucket for washing right outside the bath. Scub completely clean (and wash your hair if you're going to) before getting into the bath. Don't get into the bath soapy either!
The idea is to relax into your bath with perfectly clean water surrounding you. If there is a wooden cover on the bath - that is simply keeping the water warm. Just take it off and sit in the bath for a good soak. It's fantastic and wonderful (and I wish I had one here in England!). once you're finished, DO NOT PULL THE PLUG! Just put the wooden cover back onto the bath and you're finished.
More than one person usually uses the Ofuro (which is why you bathe before entering). It's a very authentic japanese experience and it feels wonderful.
Located in the waterfront of Hakata Bay, a symbol of sailing boat, Sea Hawk is a landmark in town. After taking hotel's C280 limousine from Fukuoka Airport, and going up to the Urban Expressway, you can easily find this charming boat in the city skyline.
The rooms of Sea Hawk are decorate into 5 styles(Asian, African, American, European and Oceanian), and half of their guest has a view of famous Yahoo! Dome, where the home base of local baseball team Soft Bank Hawks.

This is one of a nationwide chain. The Hakata hotel was standard as far as this chain goes nationwide. It's comfortable and affordable without being overly luxurious.
The rice balls and miso soup for breakfast go down well, and having free internet in the foyer is handy as well
One of the most comfortable hotels I've ever stayed in. The rooms are large, light, and well designed. The hotel adjoins the Canal City shopping center and is a short walk from Tenjin and other downtown areas.
The one drawback is that it is situated next to the red-light district - though that in itself makes for interesting sight-seeing.
Good view across the river. Excellent staff. Lots of food options - from cheap, tasty noodles at "Ramen Stadium" to pricey western fare.
The Sunlife Hotel is right across from Hakata station, which is quite ideal for any traveller. Hakata station is the main train station, and it is also home to a subway station and bus depot. The airport is two stops away on the subway, and the ferry terminal is a 15 minute bus ride away.
The hotel itself is nothing special. The rooms are small but very clean. I forgot to ask for a non-smoking room, so my room stank quite a bit! Despite the smell, everything was in good condition. TV, mini-fridge, air conditioning, and a really fancy toilet were all amenities that I enjoyed.
I would recommed this place to someone if they were not planning on spending much time at their hotel! It's a clean, comfy place to sleep, but not much else.
Skycourt Hakata Youth Guest House was reopened in 2000 after rebuilding Skycourt Hakata Hotel which is near Hakata station.
The YH is 10 minutes away from JR Hakata station on foot. Gion station (subway) is within 3 minutes on foot, and it is not far from Fukuoka airport. There are single and twin rooms. A large writing desk, telephone which is available for Internet, toilet and shower, refrigerator, air conditioning are equipped at each room. Cost is 4500 yen per person with breakfast available for 800 yen.
We stayed in this hotel since it was the wedding dinner place of my sister in law.
It is run by ANA (All Nippon Airlines) group. So very clean and well equiped.
I don't know if their service is good. Because I just be in the hotel room only for sleeping.
This hotel may be one of the best in Fukuoka. There was the baseball games for the championship of the year in Fukuoka when I was there, I found that the rival team against the local team from Osaka stayed in the same hotel as I.
