Spending nearly a month moving around Japan, this is the most pathetic room I stayed. Not even space for luggage, bed sheet smelly, probably used by a smoker before..small toilet - a very very little room indeed, and, I am not a big size person. The advantage is quite near to station and the local tram line. Luckily I met...

The accommodations I had at the Ark Hotel Hiroshimaeki Minami are the worst I experienced during my trek to lovely Japan. My room had no air conditioning, but was suppose to. The room was very small, a bit uncomfortable and dismal. The hotel is not too far from the train station. Food at the restaurant was okay. I would not...

A 5 minute from the station and easy to find. Great location. The lobby is a little dated but ok. The rooms are small and the bathroom is not very big and a bit caravanish. But everything worked and was there and very comfortable. We didn't try the restaurant but met two Australians who did and loved it. I would...

The beds were SO hard. The air conditioner did not work. We asked for a different room explaining that the a/c was broken and they let us switch rooms, but it was no better. So we went back to the front desk and they gave us a box fan. It was still so hot that I didn’t sleep at all....

Whilst the location of this hotel is good (it is a 10min walk from Hiroshima Station), the hotel itself is quite old and dated. Furnishing are very basic, beds quite uncomfortable and although we were given a non smoking room it smelt strongly of stale cigarette. Unfortunately would not return to this hotel.

I spent 3 nights in this hotel 1. Location: close to the Hiroshima station(5 mins walk), and the station for the Hiroshima train just 3 mins walk from the hotel(Line 1/2/5/6). Easy for tourists to go into downtown. 2. Room is tiny but cozy, though the soundproof is really an issue, I can hear anyone who is talking outside of...

Almost 10 minutes walk from the terminal. Room was clean but small. Wifi and internet connect was very bad. It took us more than one hour to set up the connection even with the assistance by the staff. And the signal was weak. The staff are polite but not enthusiastic to help out. Breakfast provide basic choices, not much variety...

We took 3 rooms for our party of 6: 2 semi-doubles and 1 twin room, all in the main building, for 3 nights. Just based on the location alone, we can overlook the less than perfect public bath - if this is important for you, as it is one of the few hotels offering this in Hiroshima (note this is...

located in a really good spot. 5 mins walk to train station and a 15 min walk to a big open shopping plaza. Bed was quite hard but the rest of the room was great. wifi was a bit hit and miss. other than that a good hotel to stay for the price
