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... More

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

Stayed here for 2 nights, for about £15 each pppn. Good location 5 minute walk from station and 15 minutes to the castle. Staff on reception very helpful with questions we had. Room and bathroom are small but clean. A negative is the corridors smell of smoke. Overall in comparison we preferred a Sunroute hotel (we stayed at in Hiroshima)... More

Stayed here just the one night and cannot say a bad word about it. Clean room and comfortable bed. Great location, just a short stroll to the castle and 5 minute walk from the train station. Great reception staff. We enjoyed staying at this hotel very much.

We liked this hotel for our short stay. We were only visiting this city for the Himeji castle (which we knew was under heavy restoration). The rooms are small (nothing out of the ordinary there). The reception is on the 3rd floor and the rooms are on higher floors. Nice comfy beds, clean washroom with constant hot water. Air-conditioning works... More

A well located hotel close to both the JR station and the castle (which is shrouded in scaffolding until 2014 so no photo opportunities!). The hotel is comfortable and well run with good toiletries in the bathrooms. Breakfast OK. However, it was BOILING hot, even with the window open in mid-November. Having the window open meant a lot of street... More

I stayed in Apa Hotel Himejiekikita hotel for 2 nights in summer 2011. This is typical business hotel, you don't need to bother about staff, there is no breakfast included, but it's really good place for travellers too. It's well located, 5 minutes from JR station and not so far from the castle. It can be good place to visit... More
