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

We have been guests for the second time in this hotel which is within easy walking distance from the station and away from the big streets. Spotless rooms with enough space for the foreigners personal belongings. Manager and staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help. Highly recommended! Okayama is by the way a very good...

This is a lovely hotel, great service from the front desk who showed us the way to the garden. When we came back our bags were in our rooms. Room spacious clean and has everything you need. Bed comfy. Well located within walking distance of the station, garden and restaurants. Highly recommended!

Such a delightful place to stay. However, it took us one night to find out. The hotel itself is simply great but it has very hard beds and we didn`t get much sleep the first night and woke up with back and hip aches. In the morning we ashed for softer pillows and mattress, which was fitted when the room... More

The Hotel is centrally located close to JR station. In front there is a charming little river with promenade. We had one of the corner rooms, which was huge, not only for Japanese standards, and had a nice sitting area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great base for sightseeing Okayama, Naoshima and Kurashiki.

The hotel seems to have a problem with its name because both spellings appear on and around the place and caused us to wonder whether we had the right hotel at first. .
