Well I forgot to take some pictures!! But honestly you can have better for the same price range. The smell of non smoking room is almost like smoking room! Breakfast limited Japanese style, well they have scramble eggs and coffee.

My company booked this hotel for my two-week stay in Himeji. Really great location - 5 minute walk to the train station to the south and 10 minute walk to the castle to the north. Shopping/restaurants/arcades/pubs are also within a few minutes walking distance. The room itself was small as expected, but a little more run-down than expected (high-traffic marks... More

Great location, 5 mins walk from the train station, close to stores and restaurants, 15 mins to the Himeji Castle. The room was tiny, but cozy, clean and comfortable (yes, I actually liked the bed). Comes with good toiletries in the bathroom. Reasonable price.

Barely room for two suitcases in 10 x10 bedroom space; bathroom cramped. Turning around or trying to get to bathroom was at first funny, then quickly became just annoying. Lobby looks respectable but room was awful and at $145/night, an overpriced joke. Location fair, a 20 minute walk to Himeji Castle.

Chained APA hotel is a reliable quality and reasonable priced hotel. Himeiji is a little old, but more spacious than in Hiroshima. 5 minutes walk from Himeiji station. Department store and supermarket downstair, easy to access. Moreover, 24 hours restaurant with fairly good ramen and rice.

Great location near the train station and the shopping arcade that runs nearly all the way to the castle (go that way). We paid $300+ for a microscopic room on a Saturday night on a holiday weekend. The bathroom was 1x1.3 meters (3x4 feet), and that included the tub/shower, toilet, and sink (really). There was a small desk, one chair,... More

Hard to say the rooms were up to par. Worst bed during my 16 days in Japan. Needs an upgrade. Staff on the other hand were top notch. They just need better conditions to work with. Rather pay more money for better quality. Being so close to train station, they should do something here.

Normal business hotel with lousiest bed during our stay in Japan - weak springs reminded me of my student days' bed that was cheapest one available. There was lovely origami on it, though, and the hotel is eco-friendly. Oh, and the elevator door tried to kill us. Many times.

We stayed as a couple in 614. We have spent a good deal of time traveling in Japan over many trips so we know what to expect with a cheap business hotel as far as the limited space and 1980s-vintage rooms. I have slept in travel trailers, tents, car seats, and an airport terminal floor: this bed was worse than... More

The hotel has all the basics that you need. Hotel prices in Japan is quite expensive so APA Hotel is your typical business hotel. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the hotel for you. But if you are looking for a place to stay that has all the basics and is better than inns and hostel, you... More
