1 minutes to go to the main touristic area, so convenient!!! Hotel area is nice old brick designed, but hotel has second floor. Our twin room is old, classic with no nice view. Air condition was too noisy. Recommend to stay for short stay like 1 night. You will go out all day anyway.

We liked the location right in the historic center...Too bad the front desk didn't tell us that we could've walked our the back door directly into it !! Our first trip out, we walked a long block along a busy street on one side, the hotel wall on the other. Luckily found our way back the scenic route. Our room... More

Hotel is a bit older but located is a nice area of Kurashiki. Caught a taxi from Kurashiki Station to the hotel because we didn't want to carry the bags that far. The hotel is quite far from the station. Room was a bit small but clean and comfortable. We got the room quite cheap because of a groupon that... More

I really liked Ivy Square Hotel. From the moment I arrived and met the friendly South East Asian reception staff I felt comfortable. My room was spacious and quiet and looked out over trees. There is a great outside space and the hotel is right in the middle of the lovely Bikan district of Kurashiki so you can step out... More

Dated room, but more spacious then most. Location isn't great...we were backpacking and it's quite a hike from the train station. The restaurant is pretty expensive so we didn't eat there. The staff does speak English.

This hotel is a bit down at heels. Reminds me of a 60's hotel in the midwest. There is not really much of interest around this part of town in the evening. Room was fairly large by Japanese standards (twin beds was all that was available). Had a view of a wall. Quiet. It is comfortable enough; a bit out... More

This hotel is worth staying when you stay in Japanese family suite but I'm not sure for the western room. The japanese family room is quite big to contain 6 pax. The Ivy Square locates in the midst of Kurashiki historical village. It's a very nice spot compare to many hotels which locate around the train station and not that... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ivy Square Hotel. It is perfectly located for visiting the main attractions of Kurashiki and boasts a good restaurant and pleasant bar. The room was comfortable with tea-making facilities and a well-equipped bathroom. The hotel appears to be geared up for short stays only, as the wardrobe was rather tiny. Our view was... More

On the plus side, this hotel is very near all the sites and museums On the negative side, this hotel is far removed from the train station and department stores that tend to provide our picnic dinners in our hotel rooms (about a 25 min walk). I think the concept of staying in a brick building is a novelty for... More
