I needed a place to stay close to the station as I was planning to make a stop in kagoshima on my way to yakushima. The hotel was blissfully close to the station. The receptionist, even though her English was poor, helped me book tickets to yakushima which is something I could not have done on my own. I have... More

The hotel is very close to Kagoshimachuo station (5 minute walk); ie the last and southernmost Shinkansen terminal in Japan. We could see the Shinkansen plaform from our room. Note that Kagoshimachuo and Kagoshima stations are two different station in the same city; the latter is far smaller, older and is less important. You'll pass by a Bic Camera store... More

This is my 2nd stay in an APA hotel. Been amazed at its affordability and central location as always. The room are decently furnished and love the green tea provided! If it is a simple stay in Kagoshima, do consider staying here

Inexpensive hotel for its very convenient location next to the Kagoshima Chuo station. From here we were able to take the tramway to Tenmonkan area, limited express train to Ibusuki and it was walking distance to many eateries serving Kurobuta Tonkatsu. Just round the corner there are 2 nice Yakiniku restaurants serving Kurobuta and Kuruge beef. Also a 10 minute... More

We booked a twin room with a cheap price, and usually it must cost us double price if booking the same room at another place. May be in Kagoshima the living cost is low, so hotel price is cheaper than other places. Anyway, I like the quality of everything, from the toothbrush to the slippers here. They even prepared a...

very easy to find though we arrived at a raining evening. less than 2 minutes walk from 'West Gate' of JR Train Station. Conventional Japanese Hotels, small, but neat and clean. Free Wifi is available, speed was acceptable.

Another budget business hotel - small rooms, but great location and superb service. Love the breakfast spread at this hotel. Non-smoking rooms and free wifi available. Decent amenities in this hotel, although a tad too small for 2 people!
