APA hotel is a chain hotel in Japan and offers affordable room rate for travelers, from my understanding after few online search. (jalan.net provides better room rate and no payment required.)
We had our 4-night-stay at APA Hotel ITABASHI. At first, we confused with its location which stated Ikeburoko and took a wrong stop at Ikeburoko station. Fortunately, we met someone and she gave us good direction to reach APA Hotel ITABASHI (the hotel location is within Ikeburoko area but not Ikeburoko station.)
To reach this hotel, we have to take SAIKYO LINE (heading to Omiya or Kawagoe, as stated in the board) at Ikeburoko Station or Shinjuku Station to reach ITABASHI station which is one station after Ikeburoko station. The ITABASHI station not provide lift or escalator. So, you have to think twice if you travel with VERY big or heavy luggage because you need to climb about 20 steps. Once get-off from the train, you need to take right exit and another right turn after the counter to reach the hotel. As many travelers shared here before, you can see the hotel on your right when you are in the train.
We made a reservation for a double room. The room size, bed and toilet are small but still okay for us who in petite size. Besides, the room is clean and good condition. Even it just located next to the train station but rarely to hear the noise if the window is shut. It never be a problem for us. Another advantage of staying here is FREE wifi in the room. Good!
This hotel provide laundry service (coin-machine) at 4th floor. It cost 300 yen per wash (with built-in detergent service) and 100 yen per heat-dry. Good!
There are few convenient stores like Lawson, 7-11 and one store (forgot its name which just besides this hotel) around the hotel. And, Mc Donald is available too! We never had an empty stomach while we stay here. Although this area is not that big, and completed with certain conveniences for food or grocery shopping. Just walk around will do. Good!
Easy access is another good point for staying here. Why say so? We had a day trip to Hakone and just found out this hotel saves our money and time up. FYI, they are two types of 2-day-pass to Hakone, 5000 Yen (From Shinjuku) and 3900 Yen (From Odawara). As a JR pass holder, we can take the pass 3900 Yen because we can take the train from ITABASHI station to OSAKI station then transit to the ODAWARA station (by Shonan-Shinjuku Line). It only takes us about 1 and half hour to reach ODAWARA station. If we take the pass of 5000 Yen, it takes us about 2 hours to reach ODAWARA station from Shinjuku. We prefer the first option even we need to do one more transit at OSAKI station. Anyway, it saves our money and time.
