Just a five minute walk from the JR station and a fifteen minute walk from the Himeji castle makes up a bit. We've got an non-smoking double room with an small doubles bed. The room was the smallest yet on our trip and had an outdated small bathroom, there is a smell to it like it was built in the... More

We had a room at the 9th floor. This room was so tiny. The bed was small and springy. The bathroom was bad. This wasn't the best hotel we had. The location is good if you like to visit the castle and Just a 5 minute walk of JR station.

Okay the hotel is amazing, it's located couple of blocks from Himeji JR Station and Himeji Castle. It's clean and everything you'd expect for APA, but I don't know why, the beds at this hotel were just amazing. I dunno if I was just exhausted by this point from all my travels, but I seriously had the best sleep at... More

I went to the APA hotel during a busy week end in Japan. The day before, I went to the Wing International Himeji hotel and I paid about 5000 yens for the room. I was not able to stay at the Wing because it was fully booked. At my surprise, the room in the APA hotel was exactly the same... More

Position inner the city, 5 minutes walk from train station and 15 min. from himeji castle. Rooms are small like usual in Japan, but with every comfort. Look is old-fashioned, but who cares, very good for one night staying. Cheap price. Reception on the 1th floor accessible by elevator from ground floor in common with an internet cafè.

As expected, APA again had been a good choice. The hotel is centrally located, easy access to the station and in walking distance to HImeji Castle. Though still a business hotel, it does offer the little extra to other business hotels. For example better bath rooms, higher quality interior and better amenity kits. The hotel is clean and offers a... More

Nicely decorated, clean and comfortable hotel. Spacious enough but obviously small compared to western standards. Good location, half way between train station and castle. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby and a starbucks very close for those that need their coffee fix. They had a pilot bicycle scheme running around the centre of town when we went - 100 Yen...

Chosen because it is halfway between the JR station and the Himeji Castle. Pay attention, the castle in 2014 is closed and the interior is not available to visitors. However, the hotel is a perfect accommodation and at the ground floor there is an internet cafe full of comics for all those who do not know what to do because... More

While there was a small hiccup in our booking for this hotel, staff did everything they could to ensure that everything would be sorted as soon as possible. Once in the room, it was small, but cozy and a beautiful place to unwind after walking around to see the local sights. Everything was clean and tidy, close to transport and easy... More

Perfect location beween JR station and Himeji castle. But the bath room and the carpets in both our room and the corridor were worn-out. We had a smooking room but the chair should not have burn marks. Judgeing from the pictures there are some rooms refurbished. Mine was not and it did not match my expecatations. Still clean and ok,... More
