Hotel in Japanese

Traveling to Japan? Booking a hotel in Japanese? We can help! After this free audio lesson you’ll be able to make a hotel reservation over the phone or speak to a Japanese receptionist in person. You’ll feel more confident with questions in Japanese like “how much?” and “how many,” and the kind of basic Japanese conversation you need to understand.

Listen carefully to the Japanese pronunciation of the native speakers and then practice saying the Japanese words and phrases aloud. Don’t be shy!

あきべや は ありますか

Akibeya wa arimasuka?

Do you have a room available?

Two useful words to know at this point are “heya”, a room, and “aki”, available or literally open. The receptionist may respond…


あきべや は あります

Akibeya wa arimasu.

We have rooms available.


もうし わけ ございません が、 あきべや は ありません 

Mōshi wake gozaimasen ga, akibeya wa arimasen.

No, unfortunately we have no rooms available.


もうしわけ ございません が、 まん いん です

Mōshi wake gozaimasen ga, man in desu.

No, we are booked out.

When asking for the price the receptionist at the hotel will need to know for how many people and for how many nights you want the room.


なん にん ですか

Nan nin desuka?

For how many people?


なん ぱく ですか

Nan paku desuka?

For how many nights?

You might answer :


ふたり です

Futari desu.

For two people


いっぱく です

Ippaku desu.

For one night.

The receptionist may also ask whether you want a single or a double room.

シングル / 一人部屋

シングル / ひとり べや

Shinguru / Hitori beya

A single room

ダブル / 二人部屋

ダブル / ふたり べや

Daburu / Futari beya

A double room

Your answer may look like this…

シングル / 一人 部屋 を 二泊 お願いします

シングル / ひとり べや を にはく おねがいします

Shinguru / Hitori beya o nihaku onegaishimasu .

A single room for two nights,please

ダブル / 二人部屋を一泊お願いします

ダブル / ふたり べや を いっぱく おねがいします

Daburu / Futari beya o ippaku onegaishimasu.

A double room for one night, please.

When asking for the price simply say “o ikura desu ka…” how much is it for…, and add the type of room and number of nights you want. For example:

シングル / 一人部屋で二泊お幾らですか

シングル / ひとり べや で にはく おいくら です か

Shinguru / Hitori beya de nihaku wa oikura desu ka ?

How much is it for a single room for two nights ?

ダブル / 二人部屋で一泊/一晩はお幾らですか

ダブル / ふたり べや で いっぱく/ひとばん は おいくら です か

Daburu / Futari beya de ippaku/hitoban wa oikura desu ka?

How much is it for a double room for one night ?

Some hotels charge per room, others per person. Here are some possible answers you might get to hear…


いっぱく さんぜん えん です

Ippaku sanzen-en desu.

That costs 3000 yen per night.


おひとり にせん えん です

Ohitori nisen-en desu

That costs 2000 yen per person

ダブル / 二人部屋はお一人四千五百円です

ダブル / ふたり べや は おひとり よんせん ごひゃく えん です

Daburu / Futari beya wa ohitori yonsen gohyaku en desu.

A double room costs 4500 yen per person.

シングル / ひとり べや は いっぱく にせん ごひゃく えん です

Shinguru / Hitori beya wa ippaku nisen gohyaku en desu.
