"Decent hotel, but our NS room smelled like smoke. "
Decent hotel, but our non-smoking room, elevator, & hallway smelled like smoke. Breakfast was great and staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The mattress, like many in Japan, was extremely hard and uncomfortable. Good location within walking distance of many sites.

APA hotel has an excellent location right next to the train station. The rooms were nicely appointed and clean inside. However the beds were super springy and very uncomfortable. They were way below what I would expect for a large chain hotel. I had the worst rest in my entire stay in Japan at this hotel. Their other amenities such as holding luggage after we checked out, so we could explore the area before we moved on was helpful and well appreciated though.

I stayed here 4 nights and 5 minute walk to station and nearby to stores, restaurants, buses and streetcar to get to castle and garden. Was able to leave bag at reception all day after check out.
Quiet for sleeping as double glazed windows even though on main road which can be opened for fresh air. Bed ok. Only Japanese on TV. Free breakfast of boiled eggs, pastries, rolls, soup, juice,tea was ok. Asked at reception for another pillow and got a foam one but still pretty hard but that is the style in Japan.
Kettle would not turn off automatically and replaced quickly.
The sleep gown provided was polyester, not cotton as is normal, so did not use it.
Also you can't sleep in after 7.30am as they start to clean rooms after that, so you can hear corridor noises but not vacuuming.
Hardest part is finding it to check in as no English signage on street. When leaving station, walk on right hand side of road. Past Century 21 real estate office then just before the next street there are 2 sets of escalators to reception on level 2. If you get to the street with canal just turn around and walk back a few steps.
Recommended 3 star hotel.
