Excellent hotel located 10-15 minutes from train station: you can either take the Main street to get to this hotel, or, coming out of the train and bus station, to the left and after crossing the lights, you will find a covered pedestrian walk wich is safer and faster to get to and from the station; walk all the way...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. The hotel is easy to find, just east of the train station down the main street and a short dog-leg across the canal; an easy 400 metre-or-so walk. Our room and en-suite were comfortable sizes compared with the tiny ones we've previously experienced in Japan. And housekeeping was thorough. Our communication... More

WE stayed here 1 night to go to Naoshima Island, the hotel was a short walk from the JR station, check in was efficient and the double room had a good sized queen bed, soft pillows were available on request. The bed was hard compared to other hotels and this would be the only negative. Staff give you local maps... More

10 minutes walk from station. Convenient for restaurants. 7-Eleven type of shop on the ground floor - great for picking up nick-nacks, beer etc Staff are extremely helpful highlighting restaurants on maps. Our room was a standard double - not much room to swing a cat but OK for us because we are short and small size - maybe, it... More

For the cost this hotel is a good choice in Okayama. It's easy 5 minute walk to the station and surrounded by eating options with a convenience / drug store underneath. The reception staff (and manager who is on hand to greet guests) are helpful and present a customised location map with local eating recommendations. We walked to and from... More

I recently stayed at the Koraku for two nights in order to do a day trip to Naoshima. I wanted somewhere easy to the train station, with good food options & to get a comfy night's sleep. This hotel delivers. It's not a luxurious palace, but the price reflects that (approx $75/night). Staff are exceptionally helpful, having prepared a cute... More

Nice hotel - not the biggest rooms or breakfast selection but we got the impression it was pretty good for okayama which seems to be quite small. It's near the station (5min max walk) and close to lots of restaurants. Pharmacy next door useful for water etc. we were on 12th floor. One drawback is hotel is in busy area... More
