The hotel is a couple blocks from the train station, directly down the main street. It is in good condition and very clean. The rooms were typically small as most Japanese rooms are.
The stay includes a breakfast which was one of the better ones we had. They have a selection of freshly baked pastries, eggs, soup, juice.
It is easy to catch the streetcar about a block from the hotel to take you anywhere in the city. Directly behind the hotel is a side street that is full of great restauraunts and shops and was a great lace to walk at night
Hotel Granvia, Okayama, is located right next to the station, joined by a covered walkway. The hotel is quite majestic, with a large foyer and very good gift shop. The rooms are very spacious, and the bathroom is particularly well designed, with the vanity basin separate to the bath and toilet. Soft yakata/pyjamas are provided for use in the rooms.
This hotel is located half way between the station and castle. 15-20 min walk or catch the local tram.
My room could be described as semi western/Japanese with raised floorboards with comfy double futon for the bed area. Luggage storage and coat hangar space adequate for single traveller.
Two washing machines with dryers are located on the 10th floor though I would allow an addition 30-60 min dry cycle.
Staff have limited English support however guest needs are more than adequately addressed.
