We stayed at this hotel for just one night in July 2014. Our plan was to see Okayama Castle and also travel to Takahashi to see the castle there. We arrived at Okayama Castle around 2.30pm and decided to head straight to the hotel so we could get rid of our luggage. We made a mistake by trying to get to the hotel via the underground pass. We came up next to the hotel but as the bottom of the hotel is about 4 floors of shops we missed the entrance and became confused. We eventually went back to the railway station and looked from there as I knew the hotel was supposed to be opposite. Then we saw the name of the hotel above the shops. Reception is on the 5th floor as well as the restaurant for breakfast. The staff at reception were lovely and offered us some extras for our room as well as two drip coffee sachets. Staff were not very fluent in English but not a problem for us as my daughter is fluent in Japanese. Our room was on the 7th floor and the staff member at reception gave very good directions to get to the room. The room itself was quite small but neat, clean and tidy and sufficient for us. (we have travelled extensively throughout Japan and expect rooms to be just like this so size is never a problem for us as we only use the hotel room to sleep in) Staff also gave us instructions on where to pick up the tram to travel to Okayama Castle although the staff member used the word "train" when for us in English it is a "tram" Breakfast vouchers were given to us as it was included in the price of the hotel room. Staff were also very obliging by storing our luggage in the morning while we travelled to Takahashi to see the other castle we were interested in. The only negative I could mention about the room was the small window that looked into the middle of the hotel and not into the street view as our room was on the inside of the hotel corridor. So I would suggest you request a room overlooking the street for a better outlook. All in all the staff were all excellent, helpful and pleasant, and we were thankful for all their help. We left the staff with Tim Tams as a thank you present.
