“Only stay there if it is your convention's hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed there as it was the headquarter for our convention. The neighbourhood is nice, with an entertainement área around; the bay view is nice. But that is all about it. The staff do not speak english (we were in an international convention...), the rooms are dirty, concierge is of no use, and there is no wi-fi (even if you want top pay). Western style breakfast was decent.

Electrical toilets is something you need to get used to in Tokyo in general,
aside from that Hotel Nikko is surely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at.
Rooms with lots of space, well-equipped, free LAN (wireless in the lobby, restaurants, veranda), affordable minibar, shuttle services, service level is top.

The best description of this hotel is - Great. It's in Daibada, a manmade island in Tokyo Bay. Three of us stayed here for 3 nights (with my 6 year old son) and it was just great. We were going to Disney Land on one of the days, and booked the free shuttle bus once we had a confirmed booking. The whole experience was pleasant and a breeze. The staff in this hotel do go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. The location was fine - we stayed in Shinjuku earlier of the trip, and wanted to stay in Daibada for the Disney Land, Lego Centre etc, so for the 4 days we were there we didn't go back to central Tokyo. There were lots to do near the hotel - 3 massive malls (Aqua City, Decks (where Lego Centre was), and Divers (gundam robot)). Lots of restaurants there too - we had the ramen theme park and Gonpachi in Aqua City, both were great. The hotel was right at the door step of the monorail. If you go to Narita, the airport limo stops right there.

Our room was a 45-square metre ocean view room, massive, awesome view, and with a balcony. Room itself was of 5 star standards. The beds were heaps more comfortable than other really hard tokyo hotel beds. Bathroom had separate shower/bath; internet was really good.

The other really good thing about the hotel was the price. Of the 3 places we stayed in this Japan trip, this somehow turned out to be the cheapest! There are heaps of good deals on the internet - if you find one that suits your budget, I suggest you go for it!

If you plan to base yourself here and explore Tokyo, it's still reasonably convienient, as it's only about 20 min on the monorail (Y310 each way), then you will be at Shinbashi, very close to Tokyo Station, Ueno (the zoo/science museum), Asakusa and Ginza.

Our other hotel, which we love too, was Century Southern Tower in Shinjuku. It will be difficult to decide which is now our favourite - but if we plan to go to Disney Land, I will go back to this hotel in a heart beat.

The Hotel Nikko Tokyo in Minato is highly recommended for both business and family travelers. The room is spacious for Tokyo standards. The restaurants have child rates. The ocean view is spectacular and a nearby is a great spot to take a picture of the Rainbow Bridge. The breakfast fare though is modest compared to other Asian hotels of its size but well prepared nonetheless. The staff is courteous and helpful. Nearby are big malls where either shopping for Western labels or Japan made goods are a breeze. Kid entertainment is easy. There is a science museum nearby, a Sony Explorascience exhibit. In the next mall is Legoland. Hotel Nikko is a good neighbor hotel to Tokyo Disneyland and bus transportation to the hotel is free. If you want to go downtown, the hotel is connected directly to the Daiba terminal where you can go downtown thru the city's interconnected lines.
Many tours directly pick up passengers from this hotel.

I stayed here for 2 nights for work and generally enjoyed my stay. The rooms are a nice size with a balcony overlooking the stunning Tokyo bay. I had a very enjoyable walk along the sea front to the park jutting out into the see.

I was dissapointed that having seen in the hotel guide that there was a swimming pool, when I went to use it I was charged over 1,000 Yen. Also, the restaurants are not cheap and service is not great.

For a 5* hotel the breakfast choice is not up to the standard that I would expect. I also had to sit outside the retaurant on the first morning, queuing for about 5 minutes to be seated.

The Hotel which is located directly next to Tokyo Bay enjoys great views over the Rainbow Bridge and easy access to Tokyo Big Sight Convention Centre.

The Hotel is on the Airport Limousine bus route from Narita International Airport, so access to and fro is painless and cost effective. Tickets are available from the english speaking ticket counters directly as you exit customs. Return tickets are available from the Hotel front desk although bookings are necessary as the buses service a few hotels in the Odaiba area. Trip to the Hotel takes about 90 minutes and operates on a fixed schedule.

The buses arrive on the lower ground floor of the hotel and you have to go up one floor to an expansive reception area overlooking the Bay. Reception was smooth and quite fast with a staff accompanying me all the way to the room to show me all the features. The staff are reasonably proficient in English so communication was quite easy.

There are two main features of the Hotel that would ensure I return, firstly the size of the rooms which are unusually large by Tokyo standards and secondly, all the rooms have balconies which is also unusual for Tokyo. The room I was allocated however was directly above the reception area so I overlooked a roof which spoilt the experience somewhat. Having said that, I enjoyed the beautiful view out the balcony. As in most hotels I have stayed in around Tokyo, the electronics all worked and the room was impeccably clean. The TV was a bit disappointing as I only found one channel in English.

The location around Odaiba may seem like a little bit out of the way but once you work out the train system, its actually a very convenient location. The Hotel is next to Daiba Station which is on the Yurikamome line. This line runs from Shimbashi Station to Toyosu Station but runs through different stops around the Odaiba area eg Tokyo Big Sight and Pallette Town. I took the line to Shimbashi Station and got on the Metro for the one stop to Ginza. There are various ticket options to travel around Tokyo based on your length of stay. I got advice from the Hotel and they pointed me to the type of tickets I would require for my stay.

If the above sounds all too daunting, there are 3 shopping centres walking distance from the Hotel. All three shopping centres had food courts so you will be spoilt for choice for economical meals. You could also use the Hotel for Disneyland Tokyo as there is a complementary bus shuttle to the theme park. In fact having stayed at Disneyland Tokyo in the past, I would recommend the Nikko as a better hotel.

I would definitely go back to the Nikko. I had been warned about the location but I found it very convenient and especially enjoyed the train line that actually runs below the Rainbow Bridge giving you a fantastic view over Tokyo Bay.

Room Tip: Higher floors are recommended

Pros:
Overall a very good hotel. The minimum charge was around 22,000yen/night when I booked, which I first thougt was a bit expensive for a hotel away from center of Tokyo. But a friend recommended and after I stayed for 3 nights, I think it is one of the best good-value hotel I have ever been to.

The room is big (40sqm+), bathroom is big and bright. Good bed.

Try to get an ocean view room, it is a little more expensive but the night view is worth every penny. The room has a accessible balcony, which is rather rare in Japan. The hotel is located at Odaiba which has many departments, very convinient. Talking about convinient, I wish the hotel had a convinient store. There is one in near by hotel. I will definitely be returning to Nikko Hotel when I visit Tokyo.

一泊でも良いですから、泊まってみてください。

Cons:
Staff could be better. It is not that they were bad, but I think the hotel would appear exceptional if the staff were better than average. When we first arrived there was a foreign staff, he was a little impolite. Bad first impression we got there.

The hotel is rather outside of center Tokyo. You may need to take several train to get to places. But the station is right next to the hotel so if you dont mind extra 10-15 mins of extra ride, this is no issue for you.

There is wifi and wire internet in the room but they are rather costly.

Room Tip: get an ocean view room
