Well worth it!”

I spent two nights in Himeji. The APA hotel was exactly what I needed. It was a quiet, clean room to myself. It was smaller but big enough for what I needed. The breakfast was 1100 yen purchased 1 day in advance and was tasty. If you are passing through and plan to spend a day or two, I recommend that APA hotel.

Good hotel - very near Himeji JR station”

Location, Price

Great stay - chose to stop over at Himeji to spend the night rather than Kobe since the hotels in Kobe seemed a lot more expensive when I was trying to book a place for the night. Since I had the JR Pass, it was not a problem staying at Himeji for the night before moving on to Kobe. Also gave me the chance to walk around Himeji and take a look at the grand castle (more grand if it was not under its current state of reconstruction!)

Just a short walk from Himeji Station Nothing to complain about the room, just quite small like many other japanese hotels but you get everything you need in the room. The Hotel locate near shopping street and many restaurants. About 10 minutes walk to Himeji Castle, and you can enjoy the walk along shopping street along the way to castle.

It’s APA hotel”

If you’ve stayed at the chain APA hotel in Japan then this is the same. It is a budget hotel so the room is small and facilities dated but always at a great location & price and sufficient for a short stay. It is only 15 minutes walk to himeiji castle and the walk there passes through covered shopping street offering some great bargain items.

Convenient Location”

Location, Location and Location

As long as you stick to the main road, then the Hotel is relatively easy to find. If you go through the shopping street maze, then it's easy to lose your orientation. The Hotel is very close to the JR Train and the Shinki Bus. From the Hotel, you can walk through the shopping strip and get to Himeji Castle in 15 min or so. It's not worth taking the bus. The hotel is surrounded by a variety of shops i.e. supermarket, convenience store, department store and numerous restaurants. You are spoilt for choice. I enjoyed my stay. I liked the decorative wallpaper they used in the room - it certainly added a touch of fanciness to an otherwise dull looking room.

Close to JR Himeji”

Clean, close to JR station and Himeji castle

Stayed here for a night. Close to JR Himeji, and Himeji Castle. The castle is a must-see, even if the main castle is under reconstruction. Room was clean, standard size for Japanese hotels ( a little small), might be tight for bigger-sized travellers. APA is more of a business hotel though, so you can try searching for other options. Hotels in Japan always allow you to leave your baggage before and after check-in and check-out, so you can go sightseeing.

Super OK Hotel”

Location. Price. Room standard.

Although we just stayed here for one night, it was probably the best hotel on our trip with regards to location, price per night and how the room looked. About 5min walk for the train station and located right next to a decent sized shopping street with roof. The room had the layout of a standard type budget single room. It was nicely decorated and was nice and clean. No cigarette smell or stains (for non-smoking room ofc.). Friendly staff. We did not have breakfast at our stay.

Location in Himeji, friendly staff

We stayed for 3 nights in Himeji. The rooms are small in Japan which is hard to get used to but I found it strange that the doorways were less than 6 feet tall. I am 6 feet 3 so I was in danger of injuring myself just entering the room. The hotel is in the central area near good restaurants and great shopping. If here are two of you I would suggest you getting a genuine double bed (queen) if possible as these beds are small. Our room was next to the elevator so it was noisy and the internet was quite unstable.

For a basic and surprisingly economical (Japanese small) room in an ideal inner-city location, one could not fault APA. If one wants the luxury extras, then pay for them elsewhere. My single, non-smoking room was most comfortable and clean.
