Since this was our first visit to Okayama, I have no idea if there is a better place to stay, but I wouldn't hesitate to return to the Koraku Hotal again. The hotel is just a few blocks from the station in an attractive and vibrant area of shops and restaurants which is nonetheless quiet. The staff is very accommodating,...

Though it was a short stay, we loved this hotel. The staff are very helpful and provide a perfect neighborhood map with tips of where to go. We enjoyed the decor and the evening in-room aromatherapy. The location was great for exploring.

This hotel was perfect for our visit to Okayama. Location is great...beside the canal, surrounded by restaurants (the hotel website has recommendations and reception provides their own map with locations), easy walk from station (with our carry-on size luggage) and to the gardens. Rooms are modern, comfortable, clean, all facilities provided (and if you don't like the pillows, ask for...

We used Okayama as "base camp" for day trips to Hiroshima and Naoshima (which worked out really well, if anyone's trying to plan something similar!). This hotel worked out very nicely. We got a corner room, which was huge compared to most of the places we stayed at in Japan. Nothing is spectacularly hip or unique, but the lobby and...

Dear our guest: Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your reveiew following your recent stay. I am so pleased we could support your comfortable stay. However, I am very sorry you found our pillow hard, we would be happy anytime to replace it to the softer one upon request. We are also planning to set softer...

No other way to describe it , other than to say their pillows had a heavy pebble, bean bag-like filling which made them impossible to use. We've never experienced anything like this before. We didn't bother asking for a replacement which room information noted was available if you wished a "softer pillow." They had a good list of nearby restaurants....

Dear our guest: Thank you for having posted your review on Tripadvisor regarding your last visit to Koraku Hotel. We should apologise for not having been able to provide you the softer pillow in spite of the Japanese style hard pillow. We would be happy to replace the pillows anytime guests request for that. I hope there should be the...

We stayed there for one night on our way from Fukuoka to Osaka by way of Shinkansen so our grand kid could have a break from the train trip. The hotel was only a 5 minutes walk from the JR station with many restaurants nearby. The hotel was well kept and staff were family, helpful and very polite. The famous...

We stayed here just one night, and were glad we did - until we went to breakfast. Nicely located between the station and the castle/Koraku Garden area, in an area with plenty of restaurants. Staff were very pleasant at check in. Room full of thoughtful touches, like the hand-drawn map of local attracrions recommended by the staff. Very user-friendly for...

Lovely hotel in a great location, near the station. There's a tram stop right outside that takes you to the Korakuen gardens if you want to save your legs for sightseeing! We had a corner room, 1215, which was incredibly spacious with a lovely big curved window and great view. Also separate bathroom and toilet. Definitely worth a bit extra....

The Kuraku is a pleasing hotel with a great location: just 3 blocks from the station and in walking distance to Okayama's garden-park and adjacent castle. Our room was handsome and spacious, with western beds and every amenity. Every amenity, that is, except a safe; valuables may be left at the front desk. (That it didn't occur to management to...
