Reviewed yesterday NEW

Location was good, and convenient for accessing Fukuoka airport. Breakfast was poor by Japanese standards, with less variety than some (including another Dormy Inn) and a toaster that burnt everything. Staff made us feel very rushed, even when the restaurant was less crowded. Baths were OK, but were very crowded most times I visited (which made them less relaxing than... More

All the usual niceties plus free fusion breakfast buffet, free evening ramen, and the "public" bath you can try is supplied direct from natural hot spring. 5 min or less walk to Gion subway station, 10 to Hakata JR station, 20 by taxi to airport. Convenience store on ground floor, restaurants across the street.

My wife and I were here for the Sumo tournament and to do some sightseeing. This place is an excellent base to start from. There is a well stocked Family Mart down stairs to pick up needed forgotten supplies and has a great Izakaya next door. A very tasty breakfast is served here every day from 0630 - 1000. It's...

This Dormy Inn does not live up to its brand and is in dire need of updating. In my experience, Dormy Inns are generally crisp, clean, well priced with excellent staff. While the staff was excellent and the room is cleaned, all is not as it should be. I don't mind worn, scraped furniture but I do find stains, lack... More

This hotel is right near Gion Station and in walking distance of Canal City and Nakasu. The staff was kind, the room was clean and nice with a very comfortable bed, and the onsen in the hotel was well appreciated in the morning.

Stayed a few nights visiting friends - a really nice modern hotel with free coffees and ramen in the evenings. We never used the Onsen as we were busy elsewhere but it seemed popular by the number of people going in and out in the lifts.

We stayed here for one night after arriving in Japan. I was traveling as a group of 7 so we had one room for each couple, and another room for 3 singles. The rooms were small yet cozy.

We spent three nights at the Dormy Inn Hakata Gion on our trip around Japan. It was extremely good value - about £65 / night for a double room - and the location, 10 mins walk from Hakata station and Canal City, plus the riverside yatai stalls, made it a great choice.
