Hotel Granvia Okayama4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Recommend this hotel as a centrally located, clean hotel with excellent service. The hotel is connected to the main JR Okayama station which is great for those traveling on a JR rail pass. The area around the main station is also fine (not always the case in Europe of the U.S.). The Korakuen Garden – which is definitely worth a visit -- is about a 15 minute walk from the hotel and the walk is extremely pleasant. The Okayama Castle is also very close to Korakuen Garden but is not, in my opinion, one of the more interesting castles in Japan [Osaka Castle, Kumamoto Castle and Matsue Castle are, to me, among the most interesting]. The room was reasonably sized by Japanese standards and, as is also usual in Japan, very clean. If you can get a good package deal with the breakfast [i.e. for an additional $10-$14] it is definitely worth considering as the food quality and selection is excellent; if one has a huge appetite I could see paying more but for the average person in their 40s, 50s or 60s would pay for more than they can enjoy at a price higher than $14. Finally, while Okayama is probably not one of the top spots to visit when tourists plan a vacation, with a JR Rail pass I find it an excellent centrally located point from which to visit other locations without having to move luggage each day or two.
