Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

All staff are so kind! When I borrowed a hairdryer from the front, they always smiled and did so quickly. The room is large and beautiful enough to stay. It will make you move. You are able to wear Japanese traditional clothing. It will give you valuable experience, of course, it will cost you no money. That’s why, I recommend this hotel to you strongly! 今回はありがとうございます。 7人全員大満足しております。

This is my first ryokan experience where it was less than $100 a night. You still get the large rooms, probably some of the largest rooms I have seen in Japanese hotels, complete with yukata and futon. The walls have cracks and the whole place has an old-home feel to it, but I think it's charm more than anything else. The only downside is that this old building has paper-thin walls. I could hear the other guests laughing late into the night and footsteps above my room. If you are staying, please be considerate of the other guests and keep quiet at night. For the budget you're paying, you get friendly staff who were very helpful and nice towards me as well as free coffee, tea and water out front before entry. The shower and bath areas have both private showers and the communal option. I enjoyed my 3 night stay here and would love to come back again. The room size really impressed me.

This ryokan was on the poor side of dilapidated. Their onsen was a large shared bath without even basic decoration. My partner says one of the women in her onsen was a heavily tattoed Japanese woman. Tattoos are the province of yakuza, so I can only assume that this ryokan is happy with them. The air conditioning was only marginally better than a fan. There are lots of steps to move around the place. Overally a very disappointing experience.

Stayed one night there during our trip in Japan. The ryokan is at walking distance from the Hakata station, from shrines, from the rivers and the restaurant. So the location is great. And the ryokan is really beautiful, old, all in wood, with a beautiful inside garden. The first impression was great. But then came the moment to sleep and we had then just the feeling that all our neighbors were in our bedroom. We could even hear them whisper. It was a bit strange for us as it seemed that there were not so many people in the hotel at the time and that everybody was parked in the same close bedroom. Bit anyway, noisy, impossible to sleep if the neighbors are here. The uncomfortable cushion did not help as well. Personal was really nice and the place was clean.

I've stayed here twice. It's gotten a little run down since my first visit. The first time, they served tea in the room. Not this time. The bedding was clean, but worn. Convenient to transportation and various attractions. Great ambiance of old wooden floors and latticwork walls. Sleep on a futon, wearing a yukata. If you have never stayed in a ryokan, you should. It's a wonderful way to experience Japan. If you want meals, inquire ahead of time. If you can't carry your luggage up stairs, ask for a ground floor room. There are no elevators. Hakata/Fukuoka is a wonderful town. Well worth a visit. You can take a hydrofoil to Busan, Korea from there. If you buy it ahead of time, you can take an inexpensive airplane ride on ANA to anyplace else in Japan, on a special ticket for foreigners. And, of course, there is the Japan Rail Pass.

We spent our very first night ever in Japan here and it couldn't have been more uplifting and inspiring. While the whole place is indeed somewhat worn, the rooms are fresh and clean, and the over- the-top-special atmosphere makes up for the few oddities. We never expected kimonos in our closet! Very friendly staff as well.

The staff were all very friendly and willing to help foreigners. However, it was a disappointment that the rooms and facilities were very old. Abit expensive for this quality within Fukuoka. No lifts available and I will not recommend if you have huge luggages to carry up as the stairs are also very steep and narrow. Bed was not set up for us, it has to be done ourselves, but there is turnaround service. In the room: it was nice to have the warm kotatsu in winter and the room was spacious enough for 4. Nice balcony that can sit 2 and overlooks a nice private garden. However, the cabinet and balcony doors were faulty. Facilities: Toilet for upstairs accommodates only for 2 persons (shared toilet- 1 per gender) with 2 sinks for 5 rooms shared. Hot spring (a very small and old indoor tub) is to cater to 4 persons only at a time and is occasionally full. There is also 2 private baths for us to use, slightly small but suitable one person. Overall, this is a authentic traditional ryokan if you don’t mind the old and rundown facilities. Can be abit pricey for the quality. But the staffs are extremely friendly :)

Our stay at this otherwise charming, rambling, historic old inn was damaged by being assigned Room #17. This dreadful, depressing hole of a room, with its peeling wallpaper and spartan, environment bears no resemblance whatsoever to the photos featured on Booking.com, or most of the photos on this website. No fridge, few traditional features, old and stained tatami which should have been changed long ago. What a shame, because we enjoyed the rest of the ryokan, with most employees cheerfully helpful, decent baths for both men and women, clean shared toilets and a truly splendid Japanese breakfast served in a large space redolent of the atmosphere of old Japan. Having made our reservation many months ago, I have no idea why we were stuck in that room from hell, but our rating would have been much higher if our accommodation resembled what we had been expecting. It is true that we booked a room for four people on Booking.com, and only three of us were able to make the journey, but we paid the same price for the room, not per person, so this should not have affected anything. Also, please note...you have to set up your own futon, which was a first for me in more than 25 years of annual travel in Japan and staying in ryokan way more humble than this one! Not the end of the world, but just a little odd. Stay here by all means, but by all means avoid Room #17!
