Take left turn into Kenco dori just before over bridge. Very close to canal and lovely walk along canal. Reception is excellent with good English spoken. There are free... More

A little run down but more than made up for by the good value/service. It's a short 5-10 minute walk from the train station, and the staff on reception are always incredibly friendly. The free ice-cream and breakfast pastries were a nice touch, and this was one of the best value business hotels we stayed at in Japan.

Hotel Maira could definitely dedicate more time to cleaning. The hotel is not charming enough to get a shabby-chic badge, so it just feels neglected. The bathroom constantly smelled of stale urine and the room itself reeked of mothballs. The AC unit, positioned right above the bed, dripped occasionally onto our sleeping heads below. These are all easily fixable things... More

This hotel is located centrally in Okayama. Everything is close by. It is almost a family hotel because of the friendliness of the staff and what is in the lobby. Coffee and drinks are available all day. Danish and buns for breakfast. There is a massage chair for free use in the lobby also. A foot massager also. Rooms are... More

We chose to stay at Hotel Maira while in Okayama based on reviews and pricing suiting us. Overall, our stay was quite nice - staff were lovely to deal with, location was a short walk to/from the station and a number of shops, cafes, restaurants etc very close by. The room itself was a bit larger than the last one... More

The hotel itself is fine, everything is clean, it's in a good location and everyone is fairly helpful, but be aware it says free wifi but it doesn't work! I don't know if it's just my floor or what, but nothing I do makes it operational. They have Ethernet cords, but most computers made after 2006 don't have Ethernet plugs.... More

1) Staff: The staff are super friendly and one of them in particular, always wears a cheerful smile which really brightens your day before you head out! 2) Access: Though it takes about 10 mins to Okayama JR station, this hotel is just 3-min walk from a huge Aeon mall which comprises many shops & restaurants and a big supermarket....
