Ark Hotel Okayama - ROUTE-INN HOTELS -

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at the Ark Hotel in Okayama for three nights. The main lobby of this business-class hotel is large, modern and has a cocktail lounge plus a restaurant with a fixed-price buffet breakfast and lunch. Based on the lobby set-up and advertising, it was clear that the hotel's main attraction was its wedding facilities. (Unfortunately, there were no weddings while we were there.) Our double room on the 10th floor was small, but adequate. Unlike several other hotels we stayed in, however, the TV was not bilingual (what we call SAP in the USA) so only Japanese programming was available. The hotel location is excellent, about five minutes' walk south from the Okayama train station and only a couple of short blocks from the Lawson's and 7-11 convenience stores where we bought breakfast supplies. A hint for bad weather days: instead of leaving the Okayama station, follow the signs to the south exit. There is a tunnel there that ends at a parking lot which is only one block from the hotel entrance. (You can also get there through the large underground shopping mall beneath the station plaza.) The following "deficiencies" are only with respect to similar hotels we stayed in throughout Japan: there was no Internet access at all (either in the room or in the lobby), breakfast was not included in the rate we paid for the room, there were no copies of maps, etc. in English (or any language other than Japanese) and no one on the staff spoke English. If not for the Beiks translating dictionary on my Palm PDA we would have been lost. Although we would stay at the Ark again, we would probably look for another hotel first.





L'Hotel si trova vicino alla Stazione dei treni e degli autobus, circa 10 minuti a piedi. Sempre a piedi si raggiunge facilmente il castello e il giardino il Kōrakuen, uno dei tre giardini più famosi del Giappone. Camera n° 707 tranquilla , senza odori strani e silenziosa.

朝食バイキングの料理の中に、ご当地名物「ままかりの酢漬け」がありました。他のホテルには無いものでおいしくいただきました。ランチもお得なようです。 部屋は少し古いですが、バスルームはサーモスタットつきのワンハンドルにリフォームされており便利です。


一般的なビジネスホテルです。コメントするような嫌な点もないですが、優れている点もなかったです。隣にイオンモールがある点では、買い物や、食事も出来て、便利です。 周辺にも多数ビジネスホテルがあり、値段もさほど変わらない新幹線とのバックであれば、他のホテルに空室があれば、そちらがオススメかなと思います。

隣がイオンで便利な場所だと思います。 お部屋はシングルを利用しましたがそこそこの広さなので息苦しさはないです。 ただ、団体で泊まっているからって、みんな同じフロアってもの少し考えものかと。。 夜ぐらいリラックスしたいし。 朝食ビュッフェは岡山産のメニューがいくつかあり、たくさん食べたい人にもいいと思います。
