I stayed 4 nights at single room. There is a drugstore (opens till midnight) beside of lobby. I really satisfied the "Good restaurants map" I received from reception. The free rent bicycle was useful to go around okayama city.

Proximity is very good - reasonably close to station, restaurant and izakaya strip/laneway and time permitting a good walking distance to the castle and park. If you are carrying lots of luggage its about a 10 min (flat) walk to the station - fine as long as you have wheels! Hotel staff were excellent and very helpful. Rooms are spacious... More

I found this hotel on Tripadvisor & chose it for the extremely convenient location, a short walk from the train station, and >1 km from the Korakuen Garden. The lobby and halls are elegantly decorated. The staff speaks adequate English, and strives to help. The hand-made map of the hotel area with restaurants, descriptions & prices was fantastic.

I spent 4 nights at Koraku Hotel, choosing Okayama as base camp for visiting the surrounding areas (Onomichi, Kurashiki and Himeji). The hotel is closed to the train station (less than 10 minutes by foot) making it a perfect option even when carrying big luggages. The hotel is very nice and stylish. Staff was helpful and kind during my whole... More

We had a one night stopover at Okayama, and were very pleased with our choice of hotel. It was an easy walk from Okayama Station to the hotel, and a very short tram ride to the gardens. The room was very spacious! Amenities came in pairs, including razors. Face soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were from Shiseido. We were... More

We stayed one night at the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. Though the queen sized bed was a bit small for two persons, the size of the room was spacious when compared to most of the hotel room in Japan. The location was convenient and it took about 10-15 minutes walk to the main train station. What... More

Well located between the JR station and the Koraku-en, the garden you must visit in Okayama. Staff is very welcoming with excellent handling of English. The room where we stayed two nights had all required amenities and the most sophisticated toilet we had in Japan... The choice of dishes at breakfast is excellent with a wide range of local specialties.
