Rooms at Excel Okayama feel a bit outdated but not worn out although the hotel will need a bit of refurbishing in the next years I think. Everything is clean and overall appearance of the hotel is very clean as well. The room are pretty big and there is enough room to store your luggage and everything in it. Bathroom... More

The hotel was very close to Okayama Castle. We could see the tip of the castle from our room (river view triple room). The room was spacious with different corners for make-up/dressing, cloth hanging and refrigerator. The hotel staffs can communicate well in English. If I was not mistaken, I have met the manager on duty whose English was perfect!... More

I spent one night on my way back to Tokyo from Izumo. It takes 5 min by tram from JR terminal. Hotel sign can be found when you get-off at Shiroshita stop, which is 3rd stop on Higashuyama line from Okayama terminal. Hotel's location is perfect for sightseeing. Okayama castle and Koraku-en garden within walking distance. This hotel amenities are... More

The hotel is comfortable and clean, with a bathroom in the (spacious) room. The best part is the location: minutes from the garden and castle (our room had a view on the castle), the nearest tram station is meters from the hotel, and the train station is 15 mins walk from the hotel (a 5 mins with the tram). Generally,... More

We spent one night on our way back to Tokyo, to take in the gardens and the castle. The hotel was perfect for that. It is less than a half mile from the JR station. If you have no luggage, you can walk down the main street (follow the tram tracks). Or take the tram for 3 stops, it will... More

This hotel is located on the far side of Okayama's main street (at least I think it is). It's quite close to Koraku-en and many other major sightseeing spots of Okayama, and there's a tram stop near the hotel which will conveniently take you to Okayama's train station. I will say the location is very good. It is worth to... More

Another typical budget hotel. Not quite as good value as the Toyoko Inns are, the Excel includes no breakfast and is a bit more expensive than the Toyoko Inns. It still makes for a good budget hotel, which can be recommended without hesitation. the rooms are very small, but this is typical for Japan. they are clean, have tea and... More
