We'd read some poor reviews of this hotel but wanted to be close to the station and our other choices were booked out so took the chance. We also stayed at the very pleasant APA Hotel Hiroshima Ekimae, which raised our hopes. We were disapointed. The room was a very tight fit - the tightest we experienced in Japan -... More

We stayed at the APA Hotel for several nights in January. The gentleman behind the check-in front desk, Osawa, was very patient and kind to follow our request for a room that gave us a good view of the streets outside and on the 11th floor. The onset (hot spring) was very relaxing - we enjoyed --Of special mention is... More

The rooms were clean, but very small even by Japanese standards. The restaurant is small and doesn't cater much to western tourists, so we had breakfast around the corner at a nearby APA. The location is very close (short walk), to Kyoto Station, so no need to take a cab. There's no travel or concierge so need to have your... More

Really good location, close to train station and restaurants. We're originally in a standard room - bed was so hard we couldn't sleep on it. The next night we upgraded ourselves to the premiere floor - level 11, which had much more comfortable, softer beds. Wasn't too different from the standard room, except the bed. Oh - and beware, when... More

This was not out first choice hotel but we had limited options close to Kyoto Station booking with only two weeks to our trip. The location is excellent if Kyoto Station will be a major transport hub for you. It is a short walk past Bic Camera and the other APA Hotel to Horikawadori, about a 5 minute walk from... More

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.
