“Close to Hiroshima station”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The APA hotel is a 3 minute walk from Hiroshima station. We got a bit lost the first time, so here are instructions: You exit through the south exit, walk to the right (around the bus stop area), past the post office. Cross the road at the pedestrian crossing near the post office, walk straight ahead one block, turn right and you'll see the sign 50 metres along.
It's a typical Japanese business hotel, with tiny rooms, minuscule bathrooms and smaller than normal double beds. (Seriously consider what this can mean to a decent night's sleep. On our 2nd night, one of us slept on a blanket on the floor, because we kept waking each other up in such close proximity). The room has everything you need, (other than space), including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, brush, toothbrush and paste, razor, TV and free internet connection (plug in). The reception is 24 hour, and although the English is limited, very helpful. The main shopping/tourist area is a few blocks away. If you don't want to walk, catch a tram or bus from the bus stop area outside the station.
This isn't a modern or luxurious hotel, but it's very clean with good location and service. It' an excellent place to stay if you're visiting Miyajima Island, because the train to the ferry terminal is right there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room furthest from the elevator.

My wife and I went here and though it was a bit tight it was a great hotel. Really clean and located right in the shopping area. Lots of fun to have with a great location, but just be realistic with your expectations of size.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

I stayed at the hotel for two nights with my girlfriend.

The hotel is situated minutes away from the JR station which is great if you have just came on train direct from Narita after a long flight.

The tram stop for the peace park is also located just outside the JR station. It takes about 10 mins to the park and costs about 150 yen single.

The hotel is very clean like most other hotels in Japan. It is small but you will be hard pushed to find much bigger for what you pay and who stays in the room all that long anyway.

Staff spoke some English which is hand for direction. They will also supply you with maps of points of intrest if you want.


Lawson and 7/11s are located a few seconds outside the front of the hotel and Im sure they are open 24 hours.


I had a non smoking room and didnt smell any smoke in it or anywhere else in the hotel which is good if your a non smoker but if your a smoker I think you need to go outside and find a side street to go smoke in like I did.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights during our Hiroshima visit. The hotel itself was very conveniently located near the JR Hiroshima Station. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was actually smaller than another business hotel we stayed in, but it was to be expected anyway from the Japanese business hotels. Unfortunately, the bed was a bit sunken in, and on the 2nd day, the cleaning staff did not change the used cups in our room. However, the staff at the front desks were always helpful with our questions and requests. They helped us with our luggage sending as well. Because of this reason, overall, we were pleased with our stay at this hotel.
