“Overpriced and not really nice in general...”
Reviewed October 16, 2010

Location is great, just 3 minutes from the Railway Station. I've stayed there only one night and honestly, I didn't like it. Room was quite small, with not-really fresh air. The worst was all dirty marks and signs all over the pleace - on the floor, bed, bathroom or even on the ceiling. There was an electric kettle with green tea bags, fridge and some glasses to be used as well. Internet access was included and worked fine. Bathroom was again small and not well cleaned (really old dirt, in example - ventilation wasn't cleaned there for 20 years - you can see pieces of dust attached to that). I will not mention view from our room, but it may happen in the city center - roof of the other building with some rubbish. We kept our windows covers closed. Air-condition was working OK, but remote controller was only in Japanese, it may be quite difficult. In general, that was the worst hoter during our trip to Japan and I wouldn't go there again. Probably I would choose some other hotels in Himeji (i.ex. Nikko, just nearby) or even in Kobe (short Shinkansen drive and much lower prices). Staff was really nice and helpful, but this hotel wasn't good experience. So sorry. One more thing - Himeji Castle is in major renovation until 2015, so you will not see this amazing pleace for some time. It's open inside, but outside covered with metal construction.

Stayed one night at this hotel. Very convenient location just a few steps away from the train station and just about a 15 minute walk from the castle. There is a shopping street on the way to the castle with restaurants and pharmacies etc....
The hotel itself is nothing special and the room was on the small size but the location makes up for it. Smelled a little like cigarette smoke but it was clean.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone taking a day trip to Himeji.
