Hotels in Fukuoka-shi, Japan
Where to Stay in Fukuoka-shi, Japan?
PLACES TO STAY
- Fukuoka Youth Hostel: Moderate sized rooms by a trusted brand may not entirely make up for the distance from the Hakata Station (15 minute walk), but it’s still quite nice.
- Guest House Nakaim: The location in Fukuoka’s more historic area, free Wi-Fi and cheap rates make it a budget traveller’s favourite
- Media Cafe Popeye: This ultra cheap accommodation isn’t even really a hotel – it’s an internet café that lets you sleep on location for upto 10 hours, and will provide you with toiletries. The shorter your stay, the cheaper you have it.
- Richmond Hotel: Free Wi-Fi, great shopping location and excellent amenities make this hotel a highly reviewed one, especially among couples. Smokers may want to avoid it.
- Hotel Forza Hakata: Close to the Hakata Station, the rooms here may be a tad on the small side for foreign travellers, but it’s quite generous compared to other local hotels. Free coffee and reading area in the lobby.
- Dormy Inn Hakata Gion: Popular with businessmen (who all love the free buffet breakfast), the hotel also offers an excellent onsen service. Try for twin, rather than separated beds, as it will give you more space.
- Hotel Nikko Fukuoka: If you have the buck, this hotel delivers all the bang. The breakfast has a huge variety. The staff all speak English. The two restaurants are excellent!
- Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk: The hotel earns each and every one of the five stars. As for a room with a view. Check out the stone baths. Check in can take some time, but the hotel will give you free beer while you wait.
- Hotel Okura Fukuoka: Directly connected to subway station Nakasukawabata, this easily accessible hotel in the centre of the town is a grand, classy building. The restaurants are incredible.
PLACES TO EAT
Fukuoka’s food scene is made great by the ‘yatai’, mobile street vendors of which there are about 150 around the city. They usually start operating in the evening. Though most of them sell ramen or other Hakata specialties, you’ll find variants of pretty much every cuisine type. The best part about the street venders is that customers here behave very socially compared to what you’d usually find a Japanese restaurant. Famous yatais include Mami-chan, Kajishika, and Ebi Chan. Dishes to not miss include tonkotsu, mentaiko (which is a condiment), udon (meaty wheat noodles) and gyoza (pork dumplings).
The best restaurants in the city are:
- YoshizukaUnagiya – exquisite sushi
- Chikae Fukuoka – the best freshwater eel
- Tempura no HiraoTenjin
- Hakata Motsunabe Yamanaka Akasakaten
- Restaurant Hiramatsu Hakata – incredible French food.
- Ristorante ASO Tenjin – innovative Italian dishes
- Hakata MizutakiToriden – try the chicken soup hotpot
