I wasn't expecting much with this hotel. the lobby is nice and clean, and the staff friendly. The room was surprisingly large for this level of hotel and had a massage chair - one you can use freely (no need to pay for it). Totally worth it!

Thank you for posting your nice feedback. I am happy to read that you liked our double bed room with a massage chair. This room type is called "Superior Doule Room" , and has a big reclining chair to sit back and relax, and it massages away your stiffness. I hope you refreshed yourself in your room. Thank you again... More

The hotel is near the station, and the rooms are well maintained, and a comfortable size. There is a small library with a computer and printer for free use. My husband had his best night's sleep of the trip, as the staff were so kind and accommodating to replace his pillow and re-make his bed with a softer mattress topper... More

The hotel is spot on clean, conveniently located between train station and Okayama castle, near plenty of restaurants and shops. Service was excellent and very friendly. Without hesitating, I would definitely stay in this hotel again when visiting Okayama and would recommend this to anyone visiting Okayama!

This was our second stay at the Koraku Hotel and we were not disappointed. The hotel staff are warm and friendly. The room size was good, the beds very comfortable and we had no problem exchanging our pillow for a softer one.

We booked a corner room and it was worth paying the extra money for the extra space and light. Looking at previous reviews we asked in advance for soft mattress's and all beds had soft toppers on when we arrived, which made them super comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for the charming staff and we enjoyed an excellent meal... More

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
