There are much better options than this
Not a place I would stay again. I’ve stayed in many hotels across Japan (including other APA hotels) and this one was just not up to par, especially for the price. The building is old, the bathroom is old, the room was tiny and the bed was very very hard. It is pretty close to the castle and you can ride the trolley easily from the hotel but I much preferred staying down in the shopping/downtown area for food selection and exploring. It was way over-priced, even for a Friday night accommodation.The staff was very helpful and kind.

I should have known I cannot get a decent room paying such a low price!!!! I thought we could do it just for one night, a quick stay. Regretfully one night was too long and my memory of this room might stay longer than I wanted. After all, we got we paid for. The hotel needs a new carpet and a major renovation. I have to say the breakfast was good.

Breakfast buffer is not as good as advertised. Trainees on duty are still beginners with a lot of points to be made better.

Staff needs more training
I understand that staff are not versed in English, but they didn't even make the attempt to understand my request which was to call a golf course and to book a tee time. I think, had the manager been there who I found was fluent in English, there probably would have been no problem, but there were only two ladies when we checked in and while one was trying to help the other shook her head as if telling her not to bother. We stayed at Best Western Kagoshima the next day where the staff's English wasn't much better, but they really took the time to try to understand our needs and accommodate. Also, the bedrooms at APA are EXTREMELY small. So be aware.
