The hotel is well located, next to the canal and only a 10 minute walk to the station. The staff are very friendly but speak little English from our experience. The rooms are a decent size and the beds are comfortable. The free coffee is great for the morning. We used Okayama as a base to visit Naoshima, so did... More

I stayed two nights in Okayama and decided to go to that hotel. I didn't know anything so to be honest I took the first one I checked on website. And actually it was a good idea! The hotel is not so far from station, you can go by walk or if you are with a big suitcase, you can... More

We stopped off at Okayama only for a day/night before heading to Naoshima, and immediately felt the charms of this city as we walked to the hotel from JR station. Walking along a very pretty canal, we easily found the Central Hotel and received a wonderfully warm welcome from the staff and had a quick chat to Hiro behind the... More

Our stay at the Central Hotel Okayama was amazing! The staff spoke very good English and really made us feel at home! The owner of the hotel, Masako Sugiyama, was especially amazing! Not only did she give us directions to the nearest pharmacy but she went the extra mile and actually took us there. And when we ask where we... More

Fantastic service and a great location. Hotel was clean and modern. Rooms were nice and comfortable. Hiro and his staff were very professional and helpful. The location is a close to the train station. The river in front of the hotel was a nice place to relax outdoors. We were in Japan for two weeks and this was the best... More

Hotel is near the entertainment district, so plenty of restaurants, izakaya and clubs. It's walking distance from railway station, 15 min., castle and gardens; however July heat may put you off. We stayed 2 nights. One evening we asked for advice for nearby restaurants but staff, which has always been very kind, was young and seemed unexperienced. They looked for... More

This hotel is located just 15 minutes walk from the Okayama train station and roughly 20 minutes walk to Okayama Castle and Korakuen Garden. It is located on a most pleasant tree-lined canal with great walking paths running alongside. A nice place for a morning or evening stroll. This is a modern hotel with functional and smartly designed rooms. Dark... More

This hotel is located within less than 15 minutes walk from the main railway station on a little city canal and about the 20 minutes walking to the Castle. The city tram station is also very close. Rooms are small but comfortable. Staff is very friendly & helpful.

Very nice and quiet hotel, great location (15-30min from Okayama train station by foot or couple minutes from tram station), small river infront is iluminated by blue lights at night and it looks beatiful. Room was bigger for japanese standart, clean, very comfortable bed. Staff spoke decent english. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Would stay again.
