Within easy walk of the train station and Korakuen Garden and Okayama castle. There are also many very good restaurants in the vicinity. Additionally, there is a convenience store accessible by way of the hotel lobby. We were lucky enough to book a corner room, which is very generous in size, with a seperate bathroom and toilet and lots of... More

We enjoyed our brief stay in Okayama mainly thanks to the wonderful experience we had in Koraku Hotel. We really liked the aroma light and herbal tea and the soft mattress that we were able to change to (honestly I am not sure who would prefer the hard ones ?) Room is spacious in Japanese standard and clean. There is... More

Unfortunately when booking there was only smoking rooms left. It smelt like you imagine smoking rooms do! Be prepared -smoking is quite predominant in Japan...trains, restaurants, bars, cafés etc. However, this hotel makes a lot of effort to provide you with ways to combat the smell - there is an air purifier in the room, and you can ask at...

In principle the hotel is good and located reasonably close to the train station. The reception staff checked us in efficiently and also gave a very good local map with lots of restaurants and shops. The hotel was clean and felt like an up market budget hotel. However, there was one major problem and that was it was difficult to... More

Thank you for your comments on Trip Advisor. First of all, we are terribly sorry to hear that our bed was not to satisfy your sleep, and we apologize for not having made you aware of the alternative mattress we prepare for the guests who find our beds too hard. Recently we have softer mattress pad upon request. I hope... More

Only a couple blocks from the train station. Good sized room and very clean. Has in-room refrigerator and Wi-Fi but no safe. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very nice - has Western fare but mostly Asian. Many restaurants within a couple of blocks of the hotel

I loved this hotel. It was a corner unit and we had a view of the city. It was quite large by Japan standards and extremely reasonable in price. We stayed for 3 nights and it was approx. $50/person/nite. Breakfast is not included but there are many places around the hotel in addition to convenience stores where you can buy... More

We picked the Koraku because of its Tripadvisor rating. They have plaques in the reception area on proud display and it is clear that they are anxious to maintain their rating. We picked a corner room, which was spacious ( for the price) although even on the 12 th floor, the outlook was largely urban. This is a good sized... More

We picked this hotel in Okayama for its proximity to the JR station and the Korakuen Garden (a taxi ride saves time and is not expensive). After visiting Korakuen Garden in the first day, we took a 2.5-hour train ride to Yasugi to visit the Adachi Museum of Art. On the way back, we stopped in Kurashiki for a visit... More
