The Garden Palace was an excellent value. After booking for only 7300 yen, less than we'd paid for our other Fukuoka Hotel, we were expecting a modest place with typical tiny rooms. However, the room was spacious (by Japanese business hotel standards!) with two chairs and a table as well as desk and chair, refrigerator, tea making, and good plumbing with plenty of water pressure in the shower. The staff were helpful and did their best to communicate. They kept our luggage for five days, before we checked in, while we traveled around Kyushu. Altogether, our stay at the GP was very pleasant. The only downside is that the hotel is between two subway stations, so about a 10-15 minute walk to either. I only wish we'd booked there for the five nights we stayed in Fukuoka at the start of our trip.
