We decided to go to Japan last minutes and could only secure room at this hotel. The rates was around US$140 per nite which normally would cost 50~60 on normal days. We travelled on Limited Express train which took around 40 minutes to Kokura. The hotel is conveniently located within 3-5 min walk from station. Follow the opposite direction of... More

We chose this hotel as it was close to the train station BUT far enough away from noise. Location was so easy to find and easy to get around Kokura.

Booked an ITT trip to Kyoto for three day weekend. Booked this hotel without checking trip advisor. Big mistake! Check in was frustrating mainly because of language issues. The clerk tried to explain why I had to pay extra to check in 3 hours early, but couldn't explain it well enough. Somewhere in the discussion between her and another clerk... More

The check in staff were really polite, welcoming and because we were early gave us information on what to do to fill in time. Although language was a barrier they persisted in helping us.

Very very close to the train station so it is handy, we had big backpacks on so the closer the better. It seems more of a business orientated hotel but the staff were extremely polite and helpful, rooms were clean and nice. Great wifi connection. Would definitely stay again. Thank you APA hotel

It feels like there is not to much to do in Kitakyushu but business, and for that I believe that the most important thing is location. In this case the hotel is very close to Kokura station so it is very nice. Breakfast is quite nice, and the rooms are small but you have everything you need in there. The... More

The Comfortable room, small, but this one was a bit bigger then the one we rented in Tokyo. Good location. The restaurant downstairs seems to be close all the time, But there is plenty of restaurant and shop walking distance from the hotel.
