We stayed one week in this nice hotel on a layover between business in Kyoto and Osaka. The hotel is located on the top floors of an eight story building. Its location is fantastic, walking distance to the train station and many nice restaurants. Even so the hallways are very quiet and no noise penetrates from the streets below or... More

Wakayama is a great Japanese city with a huge variety of things to do near this hotel. Located at the train station, it is easy to get to other cities, or just hop on for a few stops to see some great architecture. Of course the famous Wakayama castle is not far, either. We found some fabulous restaurants and bars... More

Very handy being a stone's throw froom the train station. We arrived at Wakayama at 11.30pm, weary and tired from travelling so it was great to crash nearby. The staff were helpful with restaurants especially at that time of night. Room wise - it's not luxurious but comfortable and adequate. Location convenient to department store and bus station.

As I arrived in the evening, I couldn't see any sign of the hotel's logo on the building. Well, there wasn't any. I was just walking past the department store and realised that there was another door to another place and voila, the side entrance to the hotel. Perhaps, a sign could be placed to show that the hotel stands... More

Excellent value and perfect location right next to JR Wakayama rail station. We used this hotel as a stopover prior to flying out of Kansai Airport. All hotels at Kansai were fully booked and this hotel was half the price of the Kansai hotels so it worked out well for us. Room was comfortable and there were lots of good... More

Hotel is just next to the train station. Easy access to bus stands which brings you to various attractions. We had a superior twin room for a family of 2+2. You will probably not have much space to move around if there is a third bed (sofa bed). It was okay for us since we were hardly in the room.... More

Good location and relaxed ambience. The room key is not a card type, you need to deposit the key when you go out. There are staff who can speak English.

The hotel is located just outside the JR Railway Station of Wakayama City. My room was comfortable, equipped with toiletries, bathrobe, tea kettle (green tea provided each day), clothes brush, shoe polish, deodorizer, fridge, television with Japanese channels. Wifi was very good. Little English spoken at the reception (only one lady had a good mastery). The reception is on the... More

Excellent hotel. Breakfast, staff service, room, accessiblity etc. Breakfast- A spread of delicious food that suited to my chinese SEAsia palate and my partner's GlutenF Aussie diet.

It's fine. It's clean. You'll survive it. If you're in Wakayama it's probably for business (it shouldn't be anywhere on your list of places to see for fun), so you might not have expected more. But in this day and age a proper fitness center is expected. The included breakfast buffet is just ok, and if you like fresh fruit... More
