“Very good Hotel, in front of Rainbow Bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Very nice location, just few steps from the Yuricamome Monorail Station named Daiba. From there you can easily access Shimbashi Station, where you can go everywwhere you may want in Tokyo. The rooms are clean and confortable, although the cigarrete' smell.
Nice view of the Rainbow Bridge

Nice hotel, close to Haneda airport (although, review what time you need to leave as transfers are not 24hrs)
BUT:
- They wanted to charge me 30% of the rate for checking in 2 hours earlier (even though I was staying for only 12 hours1)
- There is no internet in the rooms, you have to call them to install a router that didn't work, took an hour in the phone to finally connect to internet
- Reception staff speak very basic English
- You need to pay for everything in the spa but the gym

My recent stay in Tokyo brought me to Hotel Nikko where I was simply blown away from the very moment I stepped into the room. Greatly different from the usual cramp and worn-out feel one gets from most Tokyo lodging establishment, Nikko has relatively huge rooms with a real balcony that you can stepped out to and take in all the magnificence of Tokyo Bay accompanied by the famed Rainbow bridge-day through night. The room come equipped with a side space (beside the king size bed) for sofa and 2 armchairs which is right beside the dressing table separated by a spacious walkway leading to the balcony. The washroom is not your typical plastic pre-build units oh-so-common in Japanese hotels, but a proper one with showering area beside (not in) bathtub and separated from sink area by a pretty glass door. Aside from these simple pleasures, Nikko has a beautiful in house Japanese restaurant with speciality sections serving kaiseki, tempura, teppanyaki and sushi. I.e. 4 other mini restaurants under the same roof of a quaint traditional Japanese restaurant setting. I cannot ask for any better but if location matters to you, meaning if you need harajuku or shibuya at your doorstep then maybe you will need to think twice.

The hotel is located at Daiba in the city so you have to take the monorail (next to hotel) to link to the Japan Rail. There is also a Japan Rail station about 10 minutes walk away.

We had a room over looking the Rainbow Bridge which is a great view at night when it is being light up. In the morning it's just a normal bridge.

Breakfast is good... A combination of Asian and Japanese food. We are allowed to eat in any restaurant in the hotel which serve breakfast which is great as we went to 3 different restaurant in the 5 nights we stayed in this hotel.

The hotel also provide free shuttle to and from Disneyland. The nearest shopping area is a Aquacity shopping complex next doors from the hotel, you can get Toy'r us, Gap Store & etc. the food court in this complex has a very nice interior. The nearest supermarket is 2 doors away at Decks Shopping Complex.

Further away is Palatte Town Shopping complex where the Toyota Mega Web, a big Toyota showroom showing their latest and also concept cars. There is also a motorcar museum in this complex.

久々に日本に帰省した際泊まったホテルです。こちらのホテルで一番眺めが良いとされる、レインボータワービュールームに2泊しましたが、景色はそんなに感動するほどきれいではなく、前に泊まった都心のホテルの景色の方が宝石箱のようにきれいでした。禁煙ルームだったのに、部屋に入ったとき、タバコの匂いがしました。一泊目は手持ちのお香を炊いて匂いを消そうとしましたが全然だめでした。翌日は清掃係が消臭のスプレーをしてくれたらしく、匂いの状態が良くなっていたので良かったです。

ホテルはきれいにメンテナンスされていますが、老朽化が目立っていました。
ロビーには常に多くのスタッフがいて、あいさつを心がけているらしく、どのスタッフも明るくあいさつをかけてきてくれましたが、それはまさに、私たちが誇ることの出来る日本の高いホスピタリティのひとつなのかもしれません。
高いホテルですが、インターナショナルでモダンなスタイリッシュさはなく、典型的な日本の洋風ホテルで、実際海外で生活をしている私たちには、それが実際の西洋のスタイルではなく、日本の洋式ホテルのオールドスタイルというか、若干違和感を感じました。

6年ぶりのお台場の街でしたが、お台場という街自体がもう古くなった感じがしました。街にいるのは近所の住民と会社員、田舎からでてきた若者たちと中国からの観光客。ホテルのロビーにも、Wall street journal とChina dairyの英語版が置いてあって驚きました。新橋から15分、大したことはないのではと思っていましたが、実際は長く感じ、時間の限られている海外からの旅行者にとっては、コスト的にも時間的にも、不便さを感じました。

朝食ビュッフェつきで2名2泊46200円、ホテル日航東京にしては安く泊まれたのかもしれません。しかし私たちは、アメリカドルで$600以上に見合う価値は感じられませんでした。

滞在中こちらのホテルか台場でゆっくりしたい人にはおすすめですが、限られた時間で、都心部での行動がメインになる人は、都心部の他のホテルにした方がいいでしょう。

English is following.

I stayed at Hotel Nikko Tokyo for two nights with my American partner when we went back to my home country, Japan. Our room was a now-smoking Rainbow view Tower room had one double bed, which room type has the best view in this hotel. However, the room’s view was not so impressed for us. Unfortunately, the other hotel which we stayed three nights before coming to the hotel had better view of Tokyo City was like a jewelry box. In spite of non-smoking room, our room had smoking smell. I tried to burn my incense for eliminating the smoking odor in our first night, but it didn’t work. Next day, probably, the clean staff put air freshener, thus, it would be better.

The hotel was old. Even I could understand that they tried carefully maintaining and keeping clean, though... Many staff were always in lobby. All of them were helpful and always greeting us. In fact, it might be a part of Japanese high hospitality which we can be proud of.

They are excellent grade hotel, but it’s not modern stylish but typical Western style hotel of Japan. We’ve been in abroad, so, we felt complicated feeling that it’s not authentic Western style but it’s an old Japanese western hotel style.

I visited to Odaiba in six years since last time, I felt that the town also became old. In the town, there were mainly local residential people, worker, rural young Japanese, or Chinese tourist. I was surprised to find two type of newspapers in the hotel lobby; Wall street journal and China Dairy English version.
This hotel’s station Odaiba is in 15 min. from shimbashi station, but I felt it’s longer than my thought. The cost of train and the travel time are annoying for busy tourist from abroad.

We paid 46,200 yen for 2 nights, 2 peoples included with breakfast. It must be cheaper than their regular rate. However, we couldn’t feel the value of paying over $600.

If you like Odaiba, otherwise, if you stay in only Odaiba area or this hotel, stay here is okay. But, if you’re busy tourist and the purpose of your travel has in the center of Tokyo, take your room to another hotel in the heart of Tokyo.

Room Tip: Higher floor, rainbow bridge and Tokyo city view.

This hotel is one of the nicer ones in Tokyo when it comes to size. It has a very beautiful view. I would strongly suggest paying more for the ocean view and bigger 40 sq m rooms. They have nice essential oil infused toiletries and a generous living space.

The reataurants at this hotel, be it teppanyaki or tempura is par excellence. Which means you can enjoy the gamut of japanese cuisine without leaving the hotel.

The service is efficient and excellent in this hotel.

Some people might complain about the accessibility and strict 3 pm checkin. But these are minor points.

There is the cruise ship to Asakasa, Odaiba Rainbow bus to Shinagawa to take the metro and shinkansen, the monorail to Shimbashi; you might use an extra half hour each way for transport, but if you are on a leisure trip, it is worth it.

The view of the rainbow bridge is breathtaking.

I would definitely stay here again.

To address a number of the points made in the reviews:-

· Check in time of 3.00 pm while this is a pain (we had about 2 hours

to wait after our flight from the UK), I cannot complain about this

as this is the check in time stated when booking. They did take our

bag’s so we did not have to cart our luggage around. Lots of wedding

on Saturday and Sundays so passed the time watching these.

· We were sightseeing and realised when doing our research that

wherever we stayed in Tokyo it would mean train and subway journeys,

so we decided to stay somewhere with a good view (and boy what a

view) and also where you got more for your money. We monorail

journey into Tokyo took about 10 minutes and they came every 4

minutes so this is hardly a problem. Also it was quieter out on the

island so nice to get away on an evening.

· There were plenty of restaurants close by in the malls, these ranged

from food courts and high end restaurants, just don’t be snobby about

eating in a mall the food is very good.

· Rooms were very comfortable with plenty of room and the largest bed I

have ever slept in. Great views over the bridge.

· The staff did speak a little English (well done to them), I spoke 3

words of Japanese (shame on me) so any language problem is mine as I

cannot speak Japanese, but to be honest it was never a problem,

always adds to the fun of the holiday to me.

· Breakfast was great and so much choice, we were so full from

breakfast we did not need lunch. Only queued on one day and that was

a Sunday but only for about 5 minutes. Both the breakfast dining

rooms were good, we could not decide which we like best.

· We got a great package through the hotel’s web site which included

breakfast, internet in the room and gym access.

To conclude I had the best holiday ever in Tokyo and this was

complemented by a great hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the bridge
