The salmon and miso soup at breakfast were delicious! Staff is friendly. Location is right next to the train station. Soundproof was amazing. We had to take a room with no cleaning, however, the hotel was so nice, that they still offered us one time cleaning. They changed our towels every day. The biggest surprise was on the 14/th of July: it was at the beginning of the festival, and the hotel hired a real Maiko to meet the guests at the lobby. Also she was surrounded by two musicians, who performed traditional Japanese music. That was a fantastic experience.
Wi Fi was terrible: constantly switching on and off. Staff is friendly, however, they could not answer any of elementary questions (either language barrier, or they did not know the answer), for example: how to go to the airport. Also, we had to leave our key every time we went out, which was annoying.
Clean room and large bathroom
breakfast very good
I actually booked a room at this hotel as a backup. I had a apartment reservation nearby and I am not sure if I can make it on time for contract signing. I arrived on time though. But since I still need to pay if I cancel my booking I still go to Ark Hotel to checked in and went back to my apartment later on and comeback in the morning to checked out. (I know it's silly) Anyway, hotel is nice and near to Omiya station. Has supermarket and restaurants.
Nice place! A little older place but roomy rooms and very friendly staff.
Nothng that bothered us.
