R1 182+

8,8 Excellent
Pros: As a visitor arriving in Wakayama by JR train and intending to explore the Kii peninsular further by train, the Hotel Granvia is handily located immediately adjacent to the JR Station (which incidentally is also the terminus for the hugely popular Wakayama Electric Railway). Wakayama Castle is a pleasant brisk walk away along the wide avenue which runs to the West of the hotel. The hotel has direct access to adjacent Department Stores (Mio and Kintetsu) which have a selection of restaurants/food court and which are open until late, Staff were super-helpful to my various demands/requests; early arrival, extra pillows, taxis, etc. Overall good value-for-money.
Cons: Single Room was a bit small and an absence of English language channels on the TV (common when you are a bit "off-the-beaten-track" in Japan) but overall quite happy with my stay.

Cons: It was the day of super typhoon so unexpectedly I had to stay one more night. I could only book the twin room for late check in for second night. Staff were very polite but I couldn't go out in the harsh wind. the staff charged me extra money to stay in the room. I find it a little sad that they charged me for almost one night fee for staying a few hours in the room during the typhoon.

5,4 Okay
Pros: Staff were helpful in answering questions about the location and things to do. We had to leave our car key at the front desk so they moved cars that left before you. If you don't like the shampoo&rinse, they provide many varieties at the front desk you can take a small bit to use. AIr freshener and hand sanitizer by the elevator on each floor to use freely.
Cons: I asked a few questions when I made the reservation through booking.com but none of it was answered. I requested for no smoking twin room, but we got a smoking room which smelled. The rooms were a bit small for two adults. Not much space to keep luggage. The person staying before us set the alarm and didn't turn it off so we were woken up at 6:15 am on January 1st after being out all night till 3 am! Staff should've checked. Not many outlets to plug in the humidifier and air purifier (provided) and a cell phone charger. Breakfast only till 9 a.m. but they clean up by 8:50 am. so you need to be there beforehand. Not much vegetarian options. Just cereal and yogurt and plum rice ball and salad.

Cons: The rooms are extremely small, the air is very dry even using the humidifier in the room and the bed a bit too soft. The hotel looks very old.
