Very grand building right next to the train station, excellent views from the window. No noise from the railway. We were on a relatively high floor (19, ish, i think). 10 minute walk to Okayama castle ... GOOD CASTLE! Rooms very clean, staff very friendly and all with good levels of English. Stayed 1 night before travelling on further. Would... More

We were three, with one of us needing a wheelchair. Our booking agent made several mistakes for our trip (unable to properly communicate that we needed a wheelchair accessible room) **but the hotel WAS able to promptly fix the issue!** The original room had a standard tub in it, which means having to lift your leg to get in, and...

For $130 per night this is not too bad. A great location ext to the train station with plenty of shops and laces to eat surrounding the hotel. Reception staff are very quick and efficient, English is also good. The room is exactly what you expect in a japanese hotel. Small for a westerner's point of view but quite sufficient.... More

My wife and I booked a double room and we thought that there had been a mistake when we were shown to our room, the room was really tiny with the smallest double bed we have ever seen, it was pushed against the wall as it would not have fitted in the room otherwise. When I complained I was told... More

It's hard to imagine a better option for a traveler, especially a non-Japanese traveler, visiting Okayama or using the city as a base for seeing nearby stuff. Being attached to a main train station can have its downsides, but not here: You're central in this city and less than an hour from Kyoto or Hiroshima, so this can be your... More

Visited with 2 preschoolers and 2 adults. Room was quite large, 1 king size bed, super comfortable and a table with a few chairs, 1 sofa style seater. Big window we could sit on and watch the buses pull in. We stayed on the 18th floor. The wife attended a 3 day conference and I took the kids to Kyoto,... More

The hotel is well-located, adjacent to the JR Shinkansen station. It is also close to a tram terminus, city buses and a taxi stand, making transportation convenient. The hotel is close to a city neighborhood with many bars and restaurants. The Granvia Okayama staff is gracious and helpful, and go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable... More

I wrote a similar review about the New Castle Hotel in adjacent Fukuyama. The Granvia is conveniently attached to the Okayama Shinkansen station. Although it helps to speak Japanese, the staff does well with English to get you situated. They were able to steer me to the nearest ATMs that accepts international cards - the machines in convenience stores often... More
