All the reviews are correct. This is a great location and the service was friendly & helpful. It was handy to the train station and also the Aeon Mall. Also very handy to several convenience stores. We shopped at the supermarket, a couple of nights, & took food back to our room. We were able to heat it up in... More

Very nice hotel, with great service (very friendly and accommodating staff, lots of free additional services such as bikes, soft pillow, herbal tea, etc...). Room size is not huge but OK. Coin laundry, which is always helpful. The best value for money option so far in Japan.

Great hotel. Nice rooms, beds are firm, but that is Japanese standard (and I like it). Breakfast buffet optional for less than 1000yen per adult (less for kids...around 600 I think), well worth it to start your day right. Good support for English only speakers...nice local map of restaurants and pubs available. Also, free bike rental available for three hours... More

Booked one double bed room with massage chair and one twin room for my last night in Okayama. Overall, Great service, spacious clean room, reasonable price. I do suggest to check the availability and room rate at the hotel website, which offers cheaper rates in general. Location: 5 mins walk from the front exit of JR station, or 1 stop... More

Stayed there for a holiday trip with the family. The place is very well located, in a quiet street and offers all you need (including a car park). Corner rooms are very nice (large, full of light and with a nice view on the city). Surely worth the value. will come back if the opportunity arises.

This is a practical review for tourists - we didn't choose this hotel because of its laundry facilities but it became its major attraction. Location was good - easy walk from train station.

Was in Okayama for 4 days in July 2015 and booked their Standard B room. The room is rather spacious and the staffs are generally helpful. Location is really good, not mentioning they have drug/convenient store on the ground level, the post office is literally just beside the hotel. Apart from that, there are many restaurants and drinking spots around... More

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

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.
