Modern, comfortable hotel at walking distance to the main Fukuoka train station Hakata. There is absolutely nothing to say anything bad about this hotel which would costs much more in Tokyo and Osaka. The personnel were quite service oriented but English fluency was not good.

At initial check-in, was informed that the hotel had run out of single king sized bedrooms so was instead upgraded to Club Floor and had 2 doubles pushed together. No complaints from me as the beds were very comfortable.

The reviews I read were full of praise, and with reason. The combination of GRAND and Japanese is a winner. Being right next to Canal City is a big plus - photo 4401 - but occasioanlly it could be a bit noisy.
Some niggles (true of many hotels):
1) the supply of powerpoints in the room was inadequate, and the desk was poorly served see photo 4446, especially for non-Japanese guests
2) the desk chair was far too low for computer use and had to be supplemented with pillows - photo 4448
3) the curtains were translucent, and I woke up early - not what I wanted on a short break from a demanding job - photo 4449
4) the airconditioning control panel was tiny and very hard to read, especially when the light was weak - photo 4447

A great experience for a hostel/ guest-house stay. The staff was very kind. The place was kept clean. And the decor was fitting, including tatami floors in the bunk room. The breakfast was just toast, with butter and/or marmalade, but in Japan, that's a great deal at this price. I was able to sleep in as much as I wanted, as long as I dealt with the sounds of cleaning and vacuuming over the noon hour(s).
The only real negative is it's location. It's the one direction you don't want to go from Hakata Station. It's a 15 minute walk once you know where you're going and if you walk fast. The first time it took me closer to an hour to find the place. There isn't too much around, except your usual small restaurants, a convenience store, and an unusually large Pachinko Palace, given the area. Bikes can be rented to help make the travel easier, and the bus stop to the station isn't far away if you're willing to wait for it.
Overall, a pretty great place.
