Himeji was just a stopover point for me. This hotel was perfect. Good walking distance from the train station. Close to supermarket and Himeji Castle for a little sight seeing. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was lovely. Only complaint was cigarette smoke: the tissues in my room smelled very strongly of cigarettes, and my room was directly above the entry,...

We visited Himeji purely to visit the restored castle and needed somewhere close to the station after a decent trip from Shinagawa. The twin room was comfy, and despite minimal English (and Japanese on our part) the staff went out of their way to make us happy.

This is the 2nd Via Inn hotel we stayed in during this trip and I must say that I am very happy with the standard of comfort, care and service that this chain of hotels provide.

Stayed here for three nights; great business hotel, rooms are a bit small but very tidy and clean; very nice staff and a great breakfast. This hotel is just across the road from Himeji Station, which gives you quick access to rail transportation.

Stayed here for a night. The room was quite small even by Japanese standards. The space between the bed and table was a tight squeeze. The room was neat and clean and service was good. VOD system was free which was a lucky surprise. Stayed on the 2nd floor, maybe the other floors have bigger rooms.
