I was travelling with a 13 months old baby and stayed for 1 night. Baby crib was available. The room is standard size, not very big. Hotel is located right next to JR Wakayama station and next to bus station and department store. Excellent location if you are not driving and travelling with youngsters. Staff is friendly and with good... More

Prices are interesting compare to the location of hotel in the city centre of Wakayama only 1 km away from the Castel. Hotel is 3 min away from the train station and a big shopping mall. Rooms are very small (have to open luggages on the bed) and basic in terms of furnitures. Breakfast was a bit disappointed in terms... More

This hotel is just right next to Wakayama JR station and a department store. I would say the hotel offers standard room and service, but can't see anything outstanding. Room is quite spacious compared with Japan standard. There are quite a number of restaurants near the JR station, no need to worry about food.

The hotel is right beside the JR Wakayama station. Friendly staff with nice service.The room is a little small for 3 adults but still comfortable. If you want to experience the local food, don't miss the breakfast. Roast fish and yolk rice are waiting for you. The service of rent bikes for free is very nice, you can ride bike... More

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. If you... More

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
