Hotel Himeji Plaza

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was in the initial stage of a freshening up when we visited. It's not very up to date, and a bit worn. Staff are courteous and efficient, and the station and the resaurants are all very close by. The castle is 20 minutes away.

Pros: across the road from JR station, friendly staff, lobby had a old majestic Victorian feel with chandlers, clean basic rooms, local baths (onsen?) located onsite, strict non-smoking rules displayed for yest room floor Cons: rooms were slightly outdated, wifi didn't reach the rooms (had to use in the lobby)

We stayed two nights here and were very comfortable. The rooms are small but we found them adequate. We were early arrival and they were helpful, stored our luggage while we went out and about. The breakfast was a substantial buffet of Japanese foods and selection of breads. The staff were helpful and Freindly. Used to visitors so also a selection of languages.

This is perfect choice for bussiness visit, it typical hotel for those kind of guests. Hotel offers very nice, spacoius rooms, with huge and comfortable beds. It is midrange standard but value of hotel is reaaly good comparing to price. From hotel you can make short walk to castle.

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.

フロントのスタッフはとても親切でした。 ただ部屋は、廊下を歩く音は聞こえるし、明かりも漏れてくるし...。 部屋に風呂がないから浴場に行くと人でいっぱいだし、、、。 駅から近いし、とにかく安く泊まりたい人にはいいかもしれないです。

宿泊代の割に朝ご飯が充実していました。 味付けも姫路らしい優しい味付けです。 団体宿泊があると、それなりに並びます。 その場合、活気のある朝食となります。 建物や設備は古いけど、清潔でした。 大浴場(シンプル)があるので足を伸ばしてお風呂に入れます。 自転車が先着になりますが、無料で貸して頂けるので お城まで楽でした。 (お城まで徒歩だと往復1時間弱はみておかないといけないので・・・) 駅近なのも便利でした。 駐車場利用の場合、ホテル内は車種制限があるそうです。 チェックアウトがギリギリでしたので、清掃の様子が伺えましたが 今までで一番笑顔で気持ちの良い挨拶をしてくださいました。 他の方の清掃の仕事ぶりも快活としていました。


Lokasi Hotel yang sangat baik, hanya sekitar 5-7 menit berjalan kaki dari Stasiun Himeji. Kamar luas namun sedikit kuno dan termakan oleh waktu. Kamarnya bersih dan kamar mandi juga sangat nyaman. Persiapkan untuk naik turun beberapa anak tangga jika membawa koper, karena tidak memiliki ramp.
