Canal City Fukuoka Washington Hotel— A Review

I’ve stayed at Canal City Fukuoka Washington Hotel probably more than five times. My husband and I like this hotel as it is located in the famous shopping mall— Canal City.


When it comes to parking in the city, it’s always a bit of an adventure, right? Well, at Canal City Washington Hotel, we’ve found a little gem right in front of the hotel next to Mos Burger. It’s not your typical underground maze – it’s an above-ground parking building that’s super easy to access. Trust me, it’s the way to go for a stress-free stay!

If the parking in front of the hotel is full (which can happen), fear not! There’s another option nearby at Canal City parking. It’ll set you back around 1700 yen from 1:30 PM until 10:30 AM the following day, which isn’t too bad. Just keep in mind, if you need to extend your stay, they’ll charge you about 230 yen for every 30 minutes extra. It’s good to have a backup plan.

Our recent stay at Canal City Washington Hotel was over the weekend, and we got a room for 20,000 yen, which accommodated two guests. What a pleasant surprise to find ourselves in a room with twin beds, providing ample space to move around without tripping over luggage. Plus, the addition of sofas and a coffee table, alongside the desk housing the mirror and TV, added a cozy touch. Compared to our previous visits, this room felt like a spacious upgrade, as past rooms tended to be on the smaller side with minimal furnishings.

The room had everything we needed, from bathroom essentials to a tea set with a kettle, plus extras like a mini-fridge, humidifier, TV, flashlight, robes, and slippers. As for building amenities, there’s a smoking room, restaurant, vending machine, ice maker, and coin laundry, though we haven’t had the chance to use them yet.



The hotel’s location is super convenient, with Canal City mall right outside the lobby, perfect for rainy days. It’s also a quick 10-minute walk to Hakata Station. And don’t worry about cleanliness—it’s spotless, even if it has that old-school vibe like the Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo.
