We spent two nights in Nikko Senhime Monogatari on our honeymoon. We had a room with private onsen. And we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is within a walking distance from Nikko's most important temples and sights. The rooms were really nice and the onsen on the balcony was great. I was a little disappointed when reserving the hotel... More

We were especially impressed with the service at this hotel. We needed to leave the hotel early to catch a train and asked for a taxi. They said that taxis would not be available but arranged a driver for us and also gave us 4, 000 yen to spend in the hotel gift shop. We got by fine without Japanese.... More

If you're looking for a good deal, I recommend making Nikko a day trip, but if you want a full experience and don't mind paying a pretty penny, this hotel is wonderful. We stayed in a traditional tatami matted room. It was simple, but huge. We arrived a bit late, but were immediately greeted and it was clear they had... More

Reasonably priced considering breakfast and lunch and onsen included. We stayed in a room w/ private bath open to the outdoors. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The World Heritage sites are a mere 2-3 minute walk across the street and other beautiful nature/scenery is towards the back of the hotel. Great running areas through the lightly wooded forest areas... More

What was most memorable of our 2 nights stay @ Nikko Senhime Monogatari in early April was its warm hospitality, even though only a few spoke English. We stayed in a Japanese style room with bed @ JPY 35280 on half board for 2 persons/night. The full size bottles of Kanebo face gel, toner and milk lotion in the bathroom... More

Just visited for a 3D2N trip. The location is just nice. In 5 minutes walk, there are 2 convenient shops and also a bus stop (number 8) that bring you to lots of places like Kegon fall, Chuzenji Lake ( drop at bus stop number 24), Ryuzu falls (bus stop 35) and etc. Make sure you purchase the Pass from...
