We believe we were the only guests when we stayed there in late January. Staff spoke limited English but was helpful and very polite. If you want to see Nikko properly and can afford more than just a day trip, I highly recommend this hotel to you. You can get there by public transport - The bus trip from the... More

Nestled between Lake Chuzenji, Mt. Nantai and Kegon Falls in the Nikko National Park, make this the ideal location in this area. From Nikko JR station, a fifty minute bus ride which I enjoyed very much. Dated hotel with smallish dated rooms and miniature dated bathrooms. BUT, very friendly and helpful personnel. Breakfast and dinner could not be faulted. Great... More

We were surprised to find so much snow still on the ground in early April. However we were blessed with brilliant sunshine and were able to enjoy the beautiful walks around this most interesting Lake. The hotel is very well situated, close to the bus station and with a bus stop right outside. The food (French) was excellent with a... More

On our tour of Japan we spend one day at Nikko. Great place and many things to do. After visiting the many temples, we took the way of the mountains to Lake Chuzenji, where the Hotel is located. We went to see the Kegon Falls, there is an elevator that takes you to the very bottom of the fall. It... More

Located just by the waters, Nikko Lakeside Hotel is located at the junction of the bus terminal, Lake Chuzenji, and the road from Nikko town. With a busstop just in front of the hotel, we conveniently arrived at the hotel from Nikko town with our heavy luggage. Just a few steps from the gate at the other side of the... More

This review is catered towards the Western traveler... First, when traveling in Japan, westerners must be prepared for the unexpected in terms of hotel stays. In my experience, unless spending an outlandish amount of money, Japanese hotels can be a bit disappointing. Whether or not the area you are visiting is "in season" also has a great deal of influence... More

We stayed in Nikko Lakeside Hotel for 2 nights as the hub for our 3 days trip in Greater Nikko area. The Hotel is located in a truly great spot where you can see the Lake view right out of your window. A very traditional wood hot spring bathroom is built right next to the lake where you can hear...

Located next to Lake Chuzenji in the mountains of Nikko, Japan, the Nikko Lakeside Hotel was a great place to stay. When booking, I thought this hotel was right next to the water but you do have to cross a street in order to get to the shore. The view of the lake was awesome. The hotel is a bit... More

While the surroundings are beautiful this hotel is rather far from Nikko and lacks the period charm of the more rural onsen ryokan we stayed in the previous night. Western-style rooms are somewhat tired, particularly the rather small and dingy bathrooms. My wife tried the onsen and reported it was particularly sulphurous, which didn't agree with her skin nor with... More
