The Toyoko Inn Fukui Ekimae is part of the nationwide Toyoko Inn chain of business hotels. Situated right at the West Exit of Fukui Station, the Toyoko Inn Fukui Ekimae is super convenient for getting around Fukui and for getting out to visit Eiheiji Temple and the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum.
Rooms are on the cramped side but there is free Wifi, though not always the most efficient, and complimentary breakfast - rice balls, miso soup, vegetables, tea and juice.
While I was staying there was also free curry rice every night between 6pm-7pm if you could face the same dinner every evening.
The staff were very friendly and facilities include newspapers (English ones too) and computers in the lobby, a laundry room and car parking.
The area around Fukui Station has a number of hotels including the Route Inn Fukui Ekimae right next door, the Hotel Econo Fukui Ekimae and the Terminal Hotel Fukui. All offer fairly similar facilities and are similarly priced.
