I'm giving this hotel 5 stars as it cost a third the price of some of the other hotels we have stayed in and really gave good value. There is a shuttle bus to the hotel (it's only a ten minute walk but not with bags in the heat) from the station, which was waiting there at the station when... More

We made a last minute booking and stayed here to visit Himeji castle after our visit to Hiroshima. There is a free shuttle every 30 min from Himeji Station but we did not use it. It is not far from the station although a bit of a walk with baggage. It is on the opposite side of the station from... More

Himeji castle is just 15 minutes drive from the hotel. Max-value is 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel is very clean and nice decoration. There are 2 wings of the building. I stayed in the twin room (left size facing to the hotel). The room is spacious, which I had never had experience of big room space before... More

Room for this hotel is rather small, however they are able to pack all necessary items into the room (even a bathtub!). Good thing I like about this hotel is that they have a variety of "hot spring" (public bath), very clean and well maintained. The hotel offer shutter bus service to the Himeji Train Station.

On a last minute business trip and the recommended hotel was already booked. So I ended up at Hotel Himeji Castle. It is located reasonably close to the Himeji Bus/Train station but I wouldn't recommend a walk in the winter or if you have too much luggage. The hotel itself is pleasant if a bit dated but some might like... More

Himeji Castle is located 7 minutes walk from the central Himeji train station - between train station and City Hall (South of the station). It is in a more quiet area than the hustle and bustle of train station. You can walk to the famous Himeji Castle, (which is 15 minute walk North of the train station. There is also... More

Large hotel with conference/banquet facilities on the fringe of downtown Himeji. You can walk 15-20 mins to shopping and other attractions, but it is not right in the middle of the action. The hotel has a shuttle bus that goes to the bus/train station, in the middle of town. The room was small, and the bathroom was a very small... More

Luckily my fiancee and I only stayed one night in order to see the castle before moving on. The rooms are very very basic and have a complete lack of charme. Small plastic bathroom you find in low standard riyokans. Worst was the bed, we both woke up with backpain and having slept badly because of the most terrible mattress... More
