APA Hotel is pretty standardized across locations, and APA Hotel Ibaraki Koga Ekimae was no exception. The room was spotless, included TV, Wi-Fi, plugs, enough space to work on my laptop in my room, and all the amenities a solo traveler would need. The staff were by-the-book friendly, but were kind of gaijin-shocked to the point of fumbling communication when I first checked in. There's not a whole lot to see or do in Koga, and especially nothing in the neighborhood of the hotel aside from a Family Mart. The hotel was close enough to the station, but the neighborhood is a bit labyrinthine and APA Hotel doesn't immediately stand out. I chose this hotel because I knew what to expect, and APA Hotel provided. Would stay here again, if for some weird reason I find myself back in the middle of nowhere.
