“Good location and small room”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

stayed at the hotel about 5 nites. It quite good location near station. Room is quite tiny but clean and comfy. The breakfast was excellent with western food and traditional Japanese food. The hotel's staff just speak English not so good for 5 star hotel.

The rooms are basic and spartan. Decor is probably 20 to 30 years old. Well maintained. Good place for a restful night in a central location in Himeji.

Stayed just for the night. Room was quite small, but that is something you tend to expect in budget hotels in Japan. Good enough place to sleep for the night if you are on a business trip. Nothing much around late at night, except a convenient store.

Yes the Nikko delivers precisely what you would expect from a big city business focussed hotel chain. Clean, good sized rooms, an efficient staff and very handy for the railway station.

On the downside there are no personal touches - no free coffee; no internet lounge and no self laundry.

It just does what a good business hotel does - providing comfortable overnight accomodation on your way somewhere else - and you will forget all about it next week

When in Japan I often stay at the hotels near the train station because they are convenient, the staff usually speaks English and they are less expensive than the more atmospheric/charming ryokans. As such, the Nikko Himeji hit the spot. We arrived at Osaka airport and took a bus directly to Himeji. We got there around 9:30pm and found the hotel was about a five minute walk from the front of the train station (there is some construction going on but the bus driver pointed us in the right direction and we found it easily and were relieved not to have to climb any stairs with our suitcases). Our room was small and smelled of cigarette smoke and all the hotel restaurants were shut but we were so tired that we really didn't mind. The next morning we enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the 15 minute walk to the castle. Buying train tickets for our next destination was easy and we wandered around the covered shopping mall near the station. The rest of our trip was wonderful (don't miss Naoshima island and the Benesse museums) and the Nikko Himeji was a fine way to begin our trip.

Not too bad. All rooms in Japan are small, but the one I got was pack. Anyway, it is very convenient as it is near the Shinkansen station within walking distance. For business stay and a one nite stop over stay, this will be good. Quick check in and out. Otherwise, not recommended for leisure.
