Let's start with hotel in Japanese!
Pronouncing hotel in Japanese
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…
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.
Mōshi wake gozaimasen ga, man in desu.
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.
The receptionist may also ask whether you want a single or a double room.
Your answer may look like this…
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 / 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 / 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 / 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…
That costs 3000 yen per night.
That costs 2000 yen per person
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.
