We expected this hotel to be a nice one, since it's rated as one of the top hotels in Okayama. But, sadly, we didn't very much enjoy our stay. Having spent three nights in this hotel, we were much annoyed by the dripping sound in the bathroom. We tried to find out where the dripping sound came from, but in... More

Modern and super comfortable hotel with extraordinary large rooms - considering one is in Japan. Pitty I stayed there only for one night. Easy walk from station and to castle and Koraku-en garden. Absolutely nothing to complain!

The hotel lobby is a bit small but the rooms are spacious. We have a massage chair in the room and it was just perfect after a long day. Room is more spacious than a lot of hotels in Japan. Location is good, about 10 mins walk to JR stations and along the path there are hundreds of good bars... More

Good well equipped room, and the not-so-comfortable japanese pillows were readily replaced. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good economical stacker-parking for our hire car. Immediately adjacent to an extensive range of cafes and restaurants. Certainly stay again.

This hotel is well located, has small (standard) and functional rooms, good breakfast and a convenience store connected to the lobby. Biggest downfall was their pillows though. I’m not a picky sleeper, but I’m pretty sure their pillows were stuffed with plastic pellets. I only stayed for 1 night but if it had been more I would have made an... More

We have stayed in this hotel repeatedly, and we will not stay anywhere else in Okayama if the Koraku can accomodate us! The service is outstanding, and the rooms have everything the foreign traveler needs. Also, the hotel is close to the station as well as to many restaurants and shops (the Koraku's recommendations of restaurants are excellent).
