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

Located 5-10 minute walk from the station, and about 20 minutes walk for the castle. Typical business hotel, trim is not as good as the APA at Kobe Sanomiya but still nice. Breakfast buffet includes some western food and some Japanese food - decent sized, and I was quite satisfied. I was the only forreigner I saw, and it didn't... More

We stayed here for one night mainly so we could see the castle that day. We arrived early and the hotel looked after our bags for us. My comments would match the previous reviewers. I was amazed though by the pillows. I have seen almost every type of pillow torture in Japan now but these were truly unbelievable-a bag of... More

Stayed one night. They looked after our cases as we arrived early so that we could go to the Castle. The hotel is a 6 minute walk to the castle and a 5 minute walk to the station. The rooms are very clean but a bit small. The staff speak good English and are very helpful. We found our room... More

Nice location near JR station, not that far away from the castle. Clean hotel, friendly service but the room was really small. Bathroom, bed, table, chair and only few sq.ft. space! No view.

Stayed in the Washington Plaza in Dec 07 for one night. Located basically on the way from the station to the castle, the hotel is convenient. Room was relatively small, and god only knows what is going on with those pillows, but overall the rest of the place was good. We found it a good overnight base to see both... More
