Comfortable budget stay

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: Comfortable Japanese style bed with above averaged floor space.
Cons: Better directions from station for first time guests could be considered, however easy to navigate once you've been there.
Location: Local castle and related garden are a highlight. Also visit Kurashiki which is only a few stops away via local JR line.
This hotel is located half way between the station and castle. 15-20 min walk or catch the local tram. My room could be described as semi western/Japanese with raised floorboards with comfy double futon for the bed area. Luggage storage and coat hangar space adequate for single traveller. Two washing machines with dryers are located on the 10th floor though I would allow an addition 30-60 min dry cycle. Staff have limited English support however guest needs are more than adequately addressed.

Below average

Posted Sep 10, 2014
Location: Close to markets and castle/river area
Checked in early to be told they didn't have room we requested. After prolonged discussion (language based) were given a twin room after requesting a double. The room was so small had trouble getting our bags inside. While accepting that Futons are part of Japan, 2 hard mattresses thrown on a raised area of the floor, didn't have that authentic appeal. To top it off they wanted you to remove your shoes and put on theirs for the one step to enter the room. If figuring on staying more than one night, forget it.

Centrally located hotel in Okayama

Posted Oct 27, 2013
My son (7) and I recently stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel was a good location for us (close to friends' restaurant and house, and 2 play parks). It is also next to the mall, a large department store, bus station and main post office. All the main tourist sites as well as the JR station are a 15 min walk away. The staff didn't appear to speak English but I can speak basic Japanese, so they might have been able to... Our room was Japanese style and comfortable, with views over Okayama. The decor was slightly tired and would benefit from a refurb but overall I would stay here again, and my son said it was his favourite hotel in Japan.

Nice, clean, modern and well located.

I have stayed one night at this hotel and have like the traditional Japanese yet modern feel of the room. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is located a short walk away from the Okayama garden and castle, art museums as well as good shopping and restaurants.

Strange set up, good location.

The lights were controlled by having the room key in the wall including the bathroom lights and the t.v. Only 1 room key for guests which was inconvenient. Internet only in the lobby. Walking distance to train station, Okayama castle, the gardens and the performing arts center. Boutique restaurants and convenient store close by.
