My husband and I stayed at Hotel Excel for 6 nights in May 2016. We would definitely recommend this Hotel to anyone - and please put Okayama on your itinerary. We were given a ' garden view room' which meant that we had a view of the town's botanical gardens and we also had a view of the Castle -...

We were upgraded to a larger room on an upper floor with a stupendous view of the castle. The Chinese (Japanese style Chinese food) is excellent price and food. The staff is friendly and helpful. The view from the room was very nice.

We must have visited Okayama on a busy weekend as me friend got the last room in the Excel while I stayed across the road in the Comfort. He got the better deal. The twin room for single use was spacious and clean. There was also a lovely view over the Asahi River onto Korakuen. The place is central in...

Hotel Excel Okayama is very cute, modest and nice place to stay for a night when you pass through Okayama. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was nice and clean. They also provided sleep wear japanese-style. And since there are not a lot of people there, you can ask for a room with a view in a...

Lobby looks good, but as is often the case, the rooms need a revamp. Hotel had everything we needed though (ensuite, aircon, wifi, fridge, restaurants, vending machines). Had dinner at the restaurant adjacent to the lobby. Basic menu (western/asian), but cheap, as was the wine (there's also a Chinese restaurant downstairs). Our room had a nice view. Walking distance to...

A great location, with an excellent breakfast. The Chinese restaurant in the basement is also delicious and well-priced. Perhaps some of the rooms are more comfortable, but my bed was very hard and the room constantly smelled like cigarette smoke, even though I supposedly had a non-smoking room. It is an old-school budget hotel, with a definite need for an...

Rooms at Excel Okayama feel a bit outdated but not worn out although the hotel will need a bit of refurbishing in the next years I think. Everything is clean and overall appearance of the hotel is very clean as well. The room are pretty big and there is enough room to store your luggage and everything in it. Bathroom...

The hotel was very close to Okayama Castle. We could see the tip of the castle from our room (river view triple room). The room was spacious with different corners for make-up/dressing, cloth hanging and refrigerator. The hotel staffs can communicate well in English. If I was not mistaken, I have met the manager on duty whose English was perfect!...

I spent one night on my way back to Tokyo from Izumo. It takes 5 min by tram from JR terminal. Hotel sign can be found when you get-off at Shiroshita stop, which is 3rd stop on Higashuyama line from Okayama terminal. Hotel's location is perfect for sightseeing. Okayama castle and Koraku-en garden within walking distance. This hotel amenities are...
