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.

岡山駅から、ホテルの隣のイオンまで地下でつながっています。雨の日でも便利です。 バイキングの朝食が、種類も多く美味しくて嬉しいです。

結婚式の披露宴会場も備わっているということもあり、広く豪華さを感じるホテルでした。 ただ、客室は可もなく不可もなくって感じでした。 ホテルの目の前にイオンモールがあるので、買い物をする上では非常に便利でした。

ビジネスホテルシングルの部屋は細長いことが多いですが、ここは正方形の部屋だったせいか、窮屈さを感じませんでした。 必要なものは何でも部屋にある、といった感じでした。空気清浄機、携帯充電コネクタ、延長コード、わざわざフロントにお願いしなくても部屋にあるのは本当にありがたい。治安のよい日本ならではですかね。 夜遅くにチェックインしましたが、快くお迎えいただきました。 ホームページに掲載されていた地下からのアクセスは間違いないですが、地理がわかれば地上のほうが早いかもしれません。 洋食の方には多少品数少かもしれませんが、朝食もしっかり美味しくいただきました。 隣接のイオンモール食品売り場は7-22時に空いているとのことで、朝食後あれこれと物色に。 また泊まりたいホテルの一つです。


GW最中、ビジホでもシングルお一人様2万円の状況下、リーズナブルな値段(1万未満)で泊まらせて頂いた。 改装直後なのか部屋も綺麗で満足。 コスパ高いですね、それもそのはず、ルートイン系列との事、 朝食の豊富さにも納得。(最上階の風呂は無かったですが)

確か次女の結婚披露宴で、お世話になって以来だと思います。 きれいにリニューアルされてました。地元なので宿泊はないですが、同窓会の進行に合わせて、お気遣いを頂き楽しく、皆で旧交を温めました。 お世話になりました。
