Fukuoka, Japan, October 22, 2020 / TRAVELINDEX / Best Western Hotels and Resorts continues to expand its portfolio in Japan with the launch of Best Western Plus Fukuoka Tenjin-minami — the brand’s inaugural hotel in Fukuoka, an attractive coastal city and the largest metropolis on the island of Kyushu.

Best Western Plus Fukuoka Tenjin-minami is a brand-new midscale hotel located in the heart of Tenjin, Fukuoka’s dynamic downtown district. Surrounded by stylish bars and restaurants, the hotel is close to cultural sites such as Maizuru Park, Kego Shrine and the Fukuoka Art Museum. It’s the perfect place to stay for visitors who want to experience the many charms of this seafront city.

The hotel is within a walking distance from Tenjin subway station, which offers connections to Fukuoka Airport, and to JR Hakata Station, the main terminal for the Kyushu Shinkansen bullet train network.

Best Western Plus Fukuoka Tenjin-minami is ideal for both business and leisure travelers alike. All 236 rooms feature comfortable beds, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, power showers, working spaces and complimentary Wi-Fi. The onsite restaurant serves breakfast, as well as local and international dishes throughout the day, while the lounge is a relaxing spot to unwind and catch up with friends and colleagues. Guests can make use of the 24-hour business center or work out round-the-clock at the gym.
