Perfect! ”

Stayed here for a stopover before flying out of Kansai. Was perfect for our little family, only a couple minutes walk from the train station and plenty of food and things to do around close by. We stayed in a family room which was massive and gave us plenty of space to spread out! And ridiculously cheap compared to other hotels.

I booked a non-smoking room but in fact it is a smoking room i guess. As the toliet is so cold and old, i did not take a shower that night. I think it is a motel than a hotel, but nice helpful staff and really near to wakayama station. It is ok if you are seeking one short day stay.

Incredibly old and shabby.”

The photos online were deceiving, as this place was SO dated (70s or 80s) and falling apart at the seams. My room was one of the grossest I've ever slept in and I've stayed in some dives. I was really surprised for Japan. There was cobwebs and lint/fluff all over, the carpet was threadbare and stained, the furniture all worn and damaged, and the shower walls all grotty. It was cheap though! The bed and sheeting were clean at least, but it was by no means a nice place.

Old but doable”

About 5 minutes from the Wakayama Train Station, so if you are going to Kyoto, it's super convenient. The hotel is older and it shows. But the hotel room was still fairly clean. They give you a pair of pajamas you can wear, but I didn't because they were quite thick. The bathroom is set up that you bathe right on the floor OR there is a tub but the showerhead doesn't point in that direction. So either get the floor wet, or try to hold the showerhead to bathe in the bathtub to keep everything dry. Front desk called me a taxi which was super nice. Breakfast had some fish and other Japanese looking things that I tried. It did feel a bit like stepping back into the 70s.

This is the most fair hotel I have ever been. Just 3 mins' walk to Wakayama JR station. The staff are nice. The facilities are good. Actually all rooms equipped with bathroom so the statement here "shared bathroom" is not appropriate. But there is another big shared bathroom for men only.

Old but clean and functional”

City Inn Wakayama is a workable option for the economy minded who still want their own room and bath. The walls seem thin, though maybe because it wasn't crowded only for a little while. The room was perfectly clean, as was the linen and I found the bed comfortable. My room was a smoking room and I could tell, but usually I'm totally put off by the lingering odor. I didn't find it so bad here. The building is old and shows its age, and it doesn't have the polish of a new hotel, but the staff were alternately businesslike and friendly. The morning "viking" breakfast was good enough for me, with both Japanese-style western breakfast foods, rice, a small selection of tsukemono, and misoshiru. Things are a little cramped compared to the upscale hotel closer to the JR Wakayama station. If you're finicky, or just want the swank feel of a new hotel, City Inn is not for you. But if you want just the basics and don't mind an older building, this budget option will work.
