Daiwa Roynet Hotel Okayama Ekimae
Ranked #6 of 62 Hotels / Ryokan in Okayama
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for just one night in July 2014. Our plan was to see Okayama Castle and also travel to Takahashi to see the castle there. We arrived at Okayama Castle around 2.30pm and decided to head straight to the hotel so we could get rid of our luggage. We made a mistake by trying to get to the hotel via the underground pass. We came up next to the hotel but as the bottom of the hotel is about 4 floors of shops we missed the entrance and became confused. We eventually went back to the railway station and looked from there as I knew the hotel was supposed to be opposite. Then we saw the name of the hotel above the shops. Reception is on the 5th floor as well as the restaurant for breakfast. The staff at reception were lovely and offered us some extras for our room as well as two drip coffee sachets. Staff were not very fluent in English but not a problem for us as my daughter is fluent in Japanese. Our room was on the 7th floor and the staff member at reception gave very good directions to get to the room. The room itself was quite small but neat, clean and tidy and sufficient for us. (we have travelled extensively throughout Japan and expect rooms to be just like this so size is never a problem for us as we only use the hotel room to sleep in) Staff also gave us instructions on where to pick up the tram to travel to Okayama Castle although the staff member used the word "train" when for us in English it is a "tram" Breakfast vouchers were given to us as it was included in the price of the hotel room. Staff were also very obliging by storing our luggage in the morning while we travelled to Takahashi to see the other castle we were interested in. The only negative I could mention about the room was the small window that looked into the middle of the hotel and not into the street view as our room was on the inside of the hotel corridor. So I would suggest you request a room overlooking the street for a better outlook. All in all the staff were all excellent, helpful and pleasant, and we were thankful for all their help. We left the staff with Tim Tams as a thank you present.

Room Tip: Request room overlooking the street.

The Daiwa Roynet Hotel Okayama Ekimae was perfect for our four night stay in Okayama. The room was spacious by Japanese standards and had everything we needed. It is in a great location as it is near the JR station and the tram which takes you most of the way to the fantastic Okayama garden and castle. The staff were very helpful, wifi was free and fast, and there was a grocery store just a couple of doors away. Everything you need in a hotel for a short stop over at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: As some reviewers had commented on the hotel being a bit noisy, I asked for a quiet room and the roo...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. The location is superb! Just opposite the JR station and bus terminal. There is an underground tunnel connection from the hotel to the station.
The tram is just outside the front entrance of the hotel.
Rooms were modern, clean and well serviced! We found great deal on Booking.com. Free Wi-Fi.
If you are a light sleeper, request room at the back of the hotel. The hotel supply you with ear plugs. on your arrival request amenities you might need and if you are a coffee drinker, request that too, free of charge. The hotel reception is on floor 5. Under the hotel there is Bic Camera store. Many restaurants in the station and near by the hotel. Well recommended!

Room Tip: light sleepers, request room at the back of the hotel

This hotel is relatively new and has nice rooms that are quite spacious by Japanese standards. Our family of four stayed in two rooms, each a smaller double according to the hotel's options, but larger than average nonetheless. Though they did not have sofas (I think these are in the larger doubles), there was a chair and small table, and still plenty of room to walk around the bed. We found the beds a bit hard for our tastes but better than some at Japanese hotels. The breakfast was plentiful and excellent, and although the buffet is Japanese style food, there is coffee in addition to Japanese tea and vegetable juice. Through an offer on Ikkyu.com, we paid about Y27,600 for two rooms for two nights, which is quite reasonable given that it included breakfast both days. The hotel is located just across the main street from Okayama station so it's very convenient; we left our bags at the front desk and they put them in the rooms for us so they were waiting when we returned later in the afternoon.

Breakfast even though only Japanese, and ask your state that served delicious, we are very pleased.

We have been entrusted for your luggage before check in and after check out.

I was surprised at how large my room was. The entrance is more than large enough to accommodate my luggage and walk around eith ease, which has been a problem in a few places. My room came with I believe a queen size bed, small couch, large desk and plenty of room in between.
I don't know how English friendly the staff is as we spoke to them in Japanese, but seeing as every thing written everywhere here had English on it It's probably a safe bet that they get a lot of western travelers and speak some English.
When we got in the elevator we noticed a basement that connects directly to the station. That will come in handy next time.

The only problems I have is that the Internet keeps cutting out (that may be due to me staying on the eighth floor) and all night there was a very loud clicking noise. I don't know from what, if I had to guess I'd say the air conditioner, although it was fine during the day.
The hotel is right on top of a bic camera so it's pretty easy to find from the outside.

But I'm sorry internet connection not convenient.
It offers free Wi-Fi in the rooms at the hotel all of us. No password is required. We will support if it is in trouble on the Internet.

Our hotel is connected by underground passage from Okayama Station. The room is large, there is a wide enough even bring a big luggage of visitors from overseas.
Location of the hotel is in front of Okayama Station. Finding our hotel from Okayama station is easy.

This hotel is literally in front of you when you walk out of the Okayama train station! No more to say about that.. The service was good and they seem to be able to speak English well. The rooms are big, compared to the Japanese standard. Having booked a double, there was a sofa and coffee table at the end of the bed and a desk with T.V and an Ethernet plug for your laptop. Bathtub and shower were of good size and excellent condition. Best of all.. by far, was the buffet breakfast! Make sure to make full use of this, as they serve great food. The dining room also overlooks the train station, which makes for an entertaining view. Recommended and will stay again.
