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

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 The room was the smallest yet on our trip and had an outdated small bathroom, there is a smell to it like it was built in the...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...
