"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. "

"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!"

"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 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 price for one night is not high but the hotel is perfect. Within a few minutes walk from Wakayama JR station. The room is huge compared to normal Japanese hotel. Breakfast is even included in the room rate. It is a buffet style with a variety of food to be chosen. All staff we met are polite and nice. I would definitely recommend this to any travellers looking for hotel in Wakayama."

"A few things one should know before going to Kada. The hotel will pick you up from the Kada Train Station which is at the end of the train line. Do not confuse this with the Wakayama or Wakayama Shi stations. The town of Kada is a small fishing port. I assume it gets busy with tourists in the summer but when we went in late October, the town was very quiet. As in, virtually no restaurants open. Unless you have booked the half board with the hotel you are pretty much on your own. We ended up taking the train up 4 stations a finding a convenience store that had prepackaged meals and taking them back. We had a 3 person Japanese ocean view room which was beautiful. Open the blinds and the ocean is right there. The open air on sen is also ocean front and a great spot to relax. The Japanese rooms look cool but after sitting on the floor and getting up and down, it does wear on the bones a bit. Overall a great place to take a break. "

More about Wakayama

Not as popular as nearby Kyoto and Nara, Wakayama is nonetheless an excellent destination that provides the temples and history the region is known for as well as excellent access to the surrounding region via a well-connected transport system. Kansai International Airport is the closest major gateway for travelers from abroad, and train lines provide the most convenient access to the city itself.

Wakayama is a great base for the exploring traveler as much of what there is to see is found outside this prefecture capital. The city itself does have the temple of Kimiidera which hosts Japan’s largest wooden Buddha, but it is the mountains that hold the greatest treasures here. The Kumano-Kodo is here, and this is a popular pilgrimage route for Buddhists visiting sacred shrines and temples. The sacred Koya-san is to the east of the city and is conveniently accessible as trains connect to the mountain’s cable car train. Lovers of onsen can visit Ryujin for its favorite hot springs and scenic beauty, and further south from here is Hongu and the sacred shrine of Hongu-taisha. A riverboat tour in this area is well worth the time for the waterfalls and dramatic rock formations. Shirahama provides an excellent beach option, and Kushimoto is where snorkeling and diving can be enjoyed at Marine Park. Nachi Falls, Japan’s tallest waterfall, is located in Nachi-katsuura next to a temple complex, all together making for an amazing view after a pleasant climb to the top.
