The rooms are quite small, but they everything you need and they are very clean. The hotel is near a street full of restaurant, cafe and pachinko and 6 minutes away from the ikebukuro station. The personnel is very kind, even though they speak almost no english they wil try to help you in everyway they can't.

I stayed at this hotel twice in May 2009 and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite small (hey, it is Tokyo!) but very clean and well serviced.

The Hotel Ark Tokyo, what can I say? I got this hotel recommended from a travel agent, I wanted a budget hotel in the Tokyo area, and this hotel really was a great deal! The location itself isn't the greatest, it is situated next to a motorway and the views are therefore limited, but there is no need to be... More

I booked my rooms for about Y13,500 per night and I think it is a very good deal. First, the location, in Ikebukero East side, is very convenient. We walked one minute to Sunshine Bldg., and every morning and night had convenience stores, ramen, bakeries, donuts, and arcades to keep us fed and entertained at those times. The only problem...

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
