Reviewed 7 June 2013

This hotel is located next to JR Okayama station, above a small shopping mall. It's very convenient for people looking to stay near the rail station. In Japan, hotels next to rail stations are usually either expensive or old. Perhaps both. But this hotel is quite different, it was opened recently in 2012, and the room rate is quite low even for a business hotel.

When I reached the fifth floor of the building, I was surprised to see a lobby that should belong to a 3~4 star hotel, rather than the usual simple design of Japanese business hotels. The lobby is decorated in modern taste. It is located on the fifth floor and the side it faces the street are fully covered with glass. You can just sit down in the lobby and watch the city view outside. Okayama may not be the biggest city in Japan, but it's still a view at night. Train lovers can also observe the different trains passing below the hotel. The staff are nice and helpful, just like other Via Inns. There are check-out machines located in the lobby for automatic check-out in the morning.

I have booked a deluxe single room for one night. It's not the biggest hotel room I have seen, but it's well decorated with a wooden flavor. I will say it's a cozy room. You have to take off your shoes at the entrance area. The room has a very large flat TV, a set of Japanese room chair and table so you can relax while watching the TV. The bed has a bolster on it, and the bathroom has a window so you can see through your room's window while taking a bath. The service guide in my room has my room number printed on it, which is quite interesting. Most of what I mentioned above are rarely to be find in any hotels I have stayed in. Which makes this hotel very special.

The breakfast is simple. But OK considering that it's free for all. You can sit on the counter next to the large windows, and watch the city view while eating. Generally speaking this hotel is a very comfortable one. The location is very good too. But the most important thing is, it's much cheaper than other hotels of similar grade. That's what I really love about this hotel. However, since the hotel is quite close to a busy rail station, I was able to hear the station's PA announcement several times in the morning. I was too tired to be disrupted by that. But if you are a light sleeper, make sure to ask for a room that face away from the station.

Room tip: The hotel is quite close to a busy rail station. If you are a light sleeper, make sure to ask for a room face away from the station.
