A nice stroll from the station, on a lovely tree-lined canal, the hotel sits between the station (closer) and the Korakuen garden (which is worth a visit). Hotel is one block off the main road with plenty of small shops close by. My room overlooking the canal was very quiet. Spent one night here as a stop-over on way to... More

We stayed only briefly, and wish we could have stayed longer. The reviews were good and the hotel did not disappoint. The location is excellent, close to shops, restaurants, and the train station. Good service, beautiful room of a good size. Will stay again!

Good location. Convenient store down. Friendly staff. Breakfast okay. Good value for money. We enjoyed the laundry room. The massage chair in the room was given with no extra charge although at the beginnings the lady at the reception insisted for addition of 2000 yen.

I wasn't expecting much with this hotel. the lobby is nice and clean, and the staff friendly. The room was surprisingly large for this level of hotel and had a massage chair - one you can use freely (no need to pay for it). Totally worth it!

Thank you for posting your nice feedback. I am happy to read that you liked our double bed room with a massage chair. This room type is called "Superior Doule Room" , and has a big reclining chair to sit back and relax, and it massages away your stiffness. I hope you refreshed yourself in your room. Thank you again... More

The hotel is spot on clean, conveniently located between train station and Okayama castle, near plenty of restaurants and shops. Service was excellent and very friendly. Without hesitating, I would definitely stay in this hotel again when visiting Okayama and would recommend this to anyone visiting Okayama!

We booked a corner room and it was worth paying the extra money for the extra space and light. Looking at previous reviews we asked in advance for soft mattress's and all beds had soft toppers on when we arrived, which made them super comfortable.
