Fair hotel compared to price.
Overall is good. Staffs are all friendly and good service. The size of hotel is not that big so it’s not crowded. But the bathroom has smell, not so clean. And pillow is too hard but ok for sleep. Anyway, I like the eco program of this hotel.

Great stay overall, recommended & will stay again
Great stay overall. Free breakfast buffet style, menu differs slightly daily. Everyday you opt to not have them change your sheets (they still provide new towels daily and clear the trash), they give you one token per person for a drink of your choice at their vending machine (includes beer). Staff are friendly and always all smiles. Only thing was that they strictly do not allow early check in, which was a bummer as we arrived at 12noon and were really dying to wash up after a long flight but was told we have to come back at 3pm. However, they do allow you to leave the bags with them in the lobby and they will bring them up to the room for you. We have always stayed in ikebukuro for our yearly trip the past 6 years, absolutely love this place as it is very convenient to get to eateries. Right in between ikebukuro and Higashi ikebukuro station which is a bit of a walk but doable (around 10 mins give or take)

would recommend
really nice hotel, easy to check in and friendly staff that spoke really good English. room was nice,good size and nice facilities. no cupboard space which was a shame but there was a bench so used that to lay out our clothes. breakfast was nice, quiet a lot to choose from including traditional Japanese things and plainer foods for those that are a bit fussier like myself. good scheme on cleaning the rooms,having a basic one each day and full cleans on a Saturday, if you agree to this it 1 helps the environment but they also give you a free drink each from their vending machine which is a great idea to help. offer deals like cheaper tickets to the aquarium at sunshine city. train station is 10 minuets walk and same for sunshine city. really easy to navigate your way around and nice that its all so close. really good price as well for the room and breakfast being included. great place to stay, would recommend!

Clean comfy hotel in vibrant area & close to JR.
Staffs speak good English and provide great service. Good location as the hotel is surrounded by shops and restaurants opened 24/7. The hotel provides guests with a smart phone to use with unlimited data and free international calls to the US and other parts of Asia. Hotel breakfast includes a wide variety of choices.

good business hotel
This is the 3rd time I'm staying at the Ark in Ikebukuro. A good, clean, no frills business hotel, small but clean and comfy rooms, the bed on the harder side, the shower small and functional, the pay-per-view catalogue comes with a separate adult selection. The view is usually apartment complexes next to sunshine city, this time my room was on the 4th floor and consisted mostly of wall. If you don't mind any of the above, you get a good hotel in great location (a few minutes walk from exit 35 of Ikebukuro Station with fast connections to everywhere).
