"The Wakayama Hotel Granvia is a nice hotel. The rooms are upscale "business" hotel style, in Japanese terms, meaning they are not 5-star but more than adequate for the business traveller. One can reserved through discount services, making it an excellent value, and the staff have been especially helpful and friendly, and remembered me from my prior stay. We did communicate in Japanese, but their courteous and professional demeanor suggests they are probably well-trained to interact with guests in English too. I gave the facilities a 4 instead of a 5 because their work station was not set up to make digital pdf's from my documents, only hard copy prints. The lobby is surprisingly sparse for such a large space, but there are numerous coffee shops nearby, either the one just off the lobby or next door accessible by connecting door to the departments store complex. It is located about as close as you're going to get to the train station without being on top of it."

"The hotel is quite the walking distance from the train station, approx 25-30mins walk, but you will be walking in a straight path so no worries of getting lost. Remember to buy your food at the mini mart by your right before starting your walk. The hotel is very near to wakayama castle and I was lucky to got a room that overlook Wakayama castle under the full moon during a full moon day and that is a plus."

"The hotel stands in a good position: few minutes far from the Wakayamashi station, in a quiet area, with a combini just on the way from the station. The Wakayama castle was also visible from my room and it takes about a 10-minutes walk to get there. The room was fine, even though rather small, and not completely soundproof, hence it would be most suitable for a short stay. Toiletteries and many other supplies can be found at the reception, in addition to the essentials already in the room. The free breakfast was rather good: it is a Japanese-style breakfast, so no cakes or buscuits (but there were coffee, juices, yogurt and some cereals). However, it seemed home-made, thus I really enjoyed it and I did not miss the European-style breakfast at all. Beware: the hotel did not have (or at least, I did not see) its name translated in English/romaji, so it was kind of a guess that it was the right place, but Google map was on point and the Fuji picture helped."

"Its location was the primary reason I chose this hotel - the main train station (which goes to the airport via one simple transfer) is walking distance (save on bus fares!) and Wakayama Castle is still a walkable distance. If you get the top floors, the views you get of the city are pleasant. Our double room was spacious and there wasn't any smoking smell. The staff can speak English and will help you with bus options to areas you plan to visit. Kimiidera Temple, Kishu Toshogu Shrine, and Wakayama Marina City are all accessible via one-ride bus from the train station, which is walkable from the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel. Plus, breakfast is always included!"

"Rooms are well equipped n spacious Japanese standards. The decor is slightly dated with a digital alarm clock from the late 90s by your bed and no iPhone pods. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. If you are too tired, the shopping centre under the hotel has a western bistro, Japanese restaurant and Chinese restaurant (which I had not tried any since there are local restaurants just around the corner). However, we did pop into the Family Mart for snacks and drinks since the hotel had environmentally friendly policy of not providing guests with bottled water. The hotel is about a 25 min walk from Wakayama Train Station but buses frequent a stop (in front of the castle) just opposite. It's a perfect location for visiting the Wakayama Castle. If you are planning to take any trains from Wakayama City. This hotel is conveniently located 10 min walk away from there. For example, we took the Mendetai Train (pretty sea bream train) to the quiet seaside town, Kada. "
