Our experience at this hotel was not very pleasant, At 1:15, 13th of April we finally arrived at the APA Hotel in Osaka; however check-in is not allowed until 3 PM, unless you pay an additional ¥2,000 Yen to check-in early! We choose to walk about for awhile. At 3:30 we finally checked-in to the APA Hotel in Osaka. I... More

This hotel in very near Kyoto Station and very accesible to convenience stores, shopping area and restaurants. The hotel is small which is quite normal is Japan. But it is clean. The bed cushion is quite hard but for people who are used to this kind of bed will find this okay. They only offer one pillow. Accommodating and helpful... More

This Hotel is very well situated with a great service and good internet access either using WiFi, but also using LAN. The rooms are very small we barely have space for entering the room, the TV is bigger than the room itself. Nevertheless the cleanness, security, internet and place are enough for the smaller problem.

We were booked in here in September 2013, but found we couldn't get both suitcases in the room and still open the bathroom door. The staff were friendly but we chose to cancel our booking and went elsewhere. This was also the one and only time in the 4 week holiday that we found the taxi driver to be rude... More

The Lobby area smell with cook food. The economy double room is too small for 2 persons. The bed too small for 2 persons, it don't have space for our arm and leg movement. The bath/toilet is acceptable. Overall is poor. Will not want to stay at this hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights and booked based on Trip advisor reviews and price. I really only use the room for sleeping, so am generally not that fussed with room size, however for 2 adults, the room was way to small. With 2 suitcases, we had to step over our suitcases to get to the bathroom or out of the room.... More

Of the 4th hotel in Japan this has to be the worst. The smallest of rooms. Worst smell. View straight into another room. Grotty old slippers worn out by many feet. Grime in the bathroom. Everything is tired and showing it's age. Furthermore, i have absolutely no idea why my lamp shade is still wrapped in its plastic (which is... More

We stayed for three nights. I would have given the hotel an average score but the bed was beyond firm both my wife and ached the next morning. The staff were quite cordial and the hotel does have an onsen so that was one benefit. The location is good as it's close to the train station, which is way we... More

I did not like this hotel, I booked on travelocity, the photos are missleading, starting with the building's photo, the room is smaller than a ship's cabin. Worn down and the view is to an alley, for an average 180 usd I think it is nonsense. Dont book a smoking room the smell is disgusting. I have booked many hotels... More

This hotel is not as good as others from the APA brand. However, it is good value for money. The room is small, but not smaller than other hotels in Japan. There is nothing really bad to say other than the rooms are a bit old.
