Ivy Square is located in a building of somewhat more modern heritage - originally a textiles factory established in the early 1900s - but is sited right on the edge of the extremely well preserved historical streetscape of central Kurashiki that dates Bach centuries - a great place for just walking around and absorbing the history. The hotel rooms were very comfortable, and larger than average for Japanese hotels, yet quite reasonably priced. It is probably a 1,000 Yen taxi ride from the station, but if one is travelling light it is a very pleasant 20 minute walk through the more modern commercial arcades first and then the historical quarter of the town, alongside the photogenic willow lined canals.

This quaint hotel is located in the center of an historic district within walking distance of shops, restaurants, art museum, and canal boat rides. In the summer there is a delightful beer garden with live entertainment and buffet, but you need reservations. The staff were very helpful in giving directions and making good suggestions about places to go.
The beds were adequate but could have been more comfortable. Our rooms did not have a tub/shower so we had to use the public baths which were nice but offered no privacy. As foreigners, perhaps an option to use the baths a half hour before opening or after closing might be a solution.
Beautiful building in quiet location. The communal baths were a truly Japanese experience.
The atmosphere in this hotel is very pleasant probably due to the design,which is clasical countrystyle,and the fact that all the guestrooms are in one floor wings divided by ponds and all buildings are covered by ivy.
The staff at the hotel was kind and helpful. My room was very clean, and I liked I could prepare tea in my room too.
The time frame for using the public bath is too small. Only from 6am to 9am in the morning you can use then, if you wake up at 9:30 then you can´t clean yourself (no shower in my type of room).
