Hotel is not too far from Hakata station so we go there by Taxi because it is on the mountain in Fukuoka. Hotel looks cozy and relax and also nice panorama view. Staffs always smile, friend and service mind. Hotel will give pajamas after you check in, so you can choose any colour you like. We booked room Ryokan style with full facilities and get panoramic view from room. There are On-Sen & Sauna, Bar and restaurant. Recommend this hotel for relax & on-sen.

After a trip to Nagasaki, we were back in Fukuoka for a night before heading back to Hong Kong. Agora Fukuoka Hilltop Hotel is not located in the town center, but is accessible via taxi, bus, or the complimentary hotel shuttle, which runs between Hakata station and the hotel (roughly 2 times per hour). You can check their website for the schedule of the hotel shuttle. For those driving, parking is free of charge.

When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by the hotel staff. They also probably figured from the reservation that we were Chinese, and had a Chinese-speaking staff help us with our check-in. Hot tea was served while they arranged the keys, and they also let us choose what color yukata we wanted (which can be worn in the hotel premises and for the hot bath). Once everything was settled, the staff took us to our room and explained the rather unusual layout of the hotel. The lobby is located on the fourth floor, while the hotel rooms are on the first, second, or sixth floor. They have both western rooms and Japanese tatami style rooms. We also tried out the hot bath, which is free for guests. The hot bath is open from 6:30am to midnight. There are lockers and towels, and your usual amenities there. We went quite late, around 11pm, and it was relatively empty.

All in all we were quite happy with the hotel. The room was spacious and clean, futons were very comfortable, and staff were friendly and polite. The slight letdown was that we had emailed the hotel twice before arriving to ask about parking arrangements and whether they could help us make dinner reservations. Both emails were not responded to. Other than that, we enjoyed our short stay and would recommend Agora Fukuoka to others if they don't mind the slight distance from the town center.

My stay at the hotel was nice. It was 25,000¥ 250$USD to stay for night it was a bit of an odd hotel. Clean room and nice design but I would say that I expected more from the room for such a price. Everything in the hotel was relatively over priced. I ordered a normal sized cola for a whopping 600¥ which is 6$ USD (What a rip off!). Service in the hotel was kind of slow and the people working at the hotel were not able to speak English much. The view from my hotel room and the restaurant was very nice. I had to ask 3+ times for an ice water.
This is a good place to stay if you are with your girlfriend / boyfriend.

I can't say how much I enjoyed the atmosphere of this hotel. The most incredible view, big room, well tought modern but still cozy decorations, exquisite food. The service was impecable, specially the attention of Ms. Kimoto, who is very fluent in english, and the chef who went out of his way to make me apreciate japanese food. The onsen and the calm and green surroundings where a big relief after hot summer days sightseeing in a very bustling city.
If you stay here the only thing you must have in mind is that it is at least 25 minutes uphill away for downtown. The hotel have some shuttle service that works very well, in fact the only improvment I could suggest is that they should have more shuttles during the week, from 9:00 until 11:00 and 17:00 until 22:00.

Stayed 3 nights at Agora Hilltop, and enjoyed every minute going to the onsen baths every night.

The lobby is trendy, and the Japanese room I booked had great sweeping view of Fukuoka city. Hotel may be far from the Hakata or the Nakasu places of activity, but it more than made up with its free parking and great vistas.

Hotel may not be to everyone's liking, as ultimately, it is a destination wedding and banquet hotel, but it also offered something different from the other usual hotels with an onsen facility and great views.

Room Tip: Hotel rooms are split on 2 different wings, with one wing below the lobby level, and the other above the main lobby level. Had a tatami room facing Fukuoka city on Level 6, which was the top level.
