“Best experience in Tokyo after many years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I have been visiting my friends and relatives in Japan for may years but this is one of the few times that I've experienced Tokyo in a different way. We decided to stay at this hotel even though it is not in central Tokyo. We have to take the automated Yurikamome train out of Shimbashi station ( which is kind of slow in Japanese standard) to Daiba to get this hotel which we first thought it would be an inconvenience. But to our big surprise, this area is different from the busy, cramped up, claustrophobic feeling you have at other places in Tokyo. It is wide open, with a great... I mean... amazing panoramic view of Tokyo. Hotel Nikko was superb and upscale though prices are in par or even lower than other super-expensive hotels in Tokyo. Rooms were clean and larger by Japanese standards. My family of 3 were able to stay in a triple room which they had plenty of. However if you check onto regular online hotel booking services, they may not have triple bed rooms available. No problem. With a simple call to Japan, even you do not speak a word of Japanese, you get a instant English speaking reservation desk and get you a fantastic rate. (Get one of those international phone card from Costco for 8 cents a minute to Japan). That how we got this room. Make sure you tell them you want the view of the Rainbow Bridge which includes the panoramic view although I think I remember, all the rooms face the nice view.
Breakfast was great and lots of variety and was included in our hotel package. However there are so many packages, so I cannot speak for everyone. There were many restaurants nearby especially inside the Aqua City building just next door. There are walkways for pedestrians only everywhere along the way, and even for miles to other parts of this man-made island.
Almost all the staff (except the cleaning staff) spoke some English and we felt comfortable and safe all the time. Because this hotel is not in central Tokyo, taxis may be hard to get. We had plans to visit Tokyo SkyTree early morning and so we reserved a taxi with the hotel valet the night before.. and voila! the taxi was waiting for us next morning as promised.
My wife and I stayed in countless hotels before, we never experienced Tokyo this way.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and wished we had stayed longer, first impression a bit daunting as it seemed so spacious inside, but after checking in, we felt at home with friendly helpful staff, our room was as expected, first class, especially liked the electric loo seat !! the views were superb overlooking the harbour, breakfast a bit pricey but a very extensive choice from western food to Japanese etc, and really nice.

The bar out on the promenade was very nice sat there in the evening very relaxing,looking at the illuminated Rainbow bridge.
Local shopping mal nearby, with plenty of oriental restaurants, rail /bus station nearby, so easy access to the centre, also a ferry boat across the harbour to the centre.
We would definately come back, the location is perfect, out of the hussle of central tokyo,we got there from Narita airport by train, then a short taxi from tokyo station,

Room Tip: Our room was non smoking, overlooking the bay, high up, very satisfied.

This is our 2nd stay with this hotel. To most tourists, it's a bit far from downtown when compared to those right at the center. However, we chose this hotel again for it's size and the stunning view of Rainbow bridge / Tokyo Bay. The room size at this cost is very spacious and this is good for us who travel with young kids.

Rooms are nicely decorated and spacious. But the carpet needs more care as there are stinks on it. And it would be better if lighting can be improved as it's not bright enough at night.

As this is a local hotel chain where Japanese prefer, English level of staff in general is not as good as other hotel groups like Sheraton in Tokyo. However, those from guest relations can speak fluent English.

I was a bit disappointed about the breakfast arrangement. Guests will be given breakfast coupons upon check in but for our stay, we need get our 2nd batch of coupons a few days later. It was promised to be sent to our rooms but of course, nothing was there and so we need to go the front desk to get them arranged. As the operator on the phone couldn't understand what I said. In fact, I don't think it's a good idea to use breakfast coupons... Hotel should be able to identified whose breakfast is included with hotel room number. And breakfast only serve from 7 a.m. which is a bit late for those who need to depart for morning flights or early tours to Tokyo surrounding areas.

Our check in is also disappointed. We booked 3 rooms with 1 king bed room. They gave us all twin beds and so have to wait for 30 mins in order to get the rooms right.

Despite the few disappointments, we still prefer this hotel because of the quiet environment but good location. We have good views of Tokyo from the other side of the bay, the Quay & Decks next door is good spots for kids & dinners. The free wifi is an added benefit.

The monorail from Odaiba to Shimbashi takes you 15 mins and you can connect to JR there conveniently. If you plan to bring your kids to Disney Tokyo, this is a right place to stay as there are free shuttle to & from Disney in the hotel.

Room Tip: Go for room with Rainbow bridge view. It's worth the extra.

Spacious rooms with fantastic views. Despite the concerns of some reviews, floor five was in no way tired. This is a very reasonably priced 4/5 star hotel with a good range or Asian/oriental and western breakfasts. We could not fault the room; it had everything you would expect from a hotel of this quality. However, this is a hotel that did contain a lot of families and young children due to proximity to Dysney, Tokyo. It is a hotel we would recommend as very good value; however, be warned that the Veranda bar does buck the trend. On our first night we were quite late wanting something to eat and 4 glasses of wine, a small sandwich and small plate of cappacio fish set us back not far short of £80. If you arrive early then they are unwavering on their check in time of 3pm - this can be a draw back for weary travellers who just want to unpack and have a shower!

The nearest shopping centres, Aqua City, Joyopolis and Decks contain a bizarre mix of shops, restaurant and entertainment; if you fancy an hour of frivolous fun on simulators, gliding through the skies or white water rafting then Joyopolis (6/7 minute walk from hotel) is well worth a visit. Many reviews mention the proximity of Daiba station where the metro will get you int Shinabasi station within 16 minutes, but an alternative is to walk down to the pier and take a boat trip; it is more expensive and takes longer, but is a lovely way to experience the Toyko skyline.

This is a good hotel. The rooms are quite spacious considering its in such a big city. Comfortable beds, good fittings, we had a nice view of the bay and the rainbow bridge. Breakfast is served in three of the restaurants...good breakfast. The restaurants in the hotel are all fine. One downside is that most of them only had Japanese menu cards (and without any photos) which was very inconvenient for non-japanese-speaking tourists like us - its not practical to have someone tell us what each of the option on the menu means! So most of the time we ended up going to the restaurants in the malls which are fortunately just besides the hotel.
Staff is courteous and efficient. The airport bus was very convenient. Also, the monorail stop is just opposite the hotel - very convenient to access the city.
Good hotel, would recommend to anyone spending a few nights in Tokyo.

I love going to Japan and the good lady will join me on the condition that we stay at the Hotel Nikko for a few days before we fly back to Australia. I have to say that I quite like it but frankly we use it mostly as a place to get some much needed rest after a busy day of shopping, site seeing, exercise and of course eating, and in that regard it's excellent. Compared to other places that we've stayed at in Tokyo, the hotel Nikko is as quiet as a mouse. Also worth mentioning is the good level of service, comfortable room (bed, facilities etc) and that the general area around it is nice to wander around with pleasant views. If I travel on my own I probably prefer a place more in the centre where the action, restaurants and of course the noise is. Having said that Hotel Nikko is but a civilized short rail trip to the mayhem.

Room Tip: I'd say all rooms are pretty good. I don't require a room with a view because the cafe &...

We stayed at Hotel Nikko as a short stop on our honeymoon flight to Europe from New Zealand, and it was well worth the effort getting there. The hotel is a short distance out of the centre of Tokyo, however if you're looking for a nice quiet district, with some good shopping nearby in a lovely hotel, it's worth it. We opted to have an authentic Japanese breakfast one morning, and while expensive it was amazing. The service was lovely, and it's not expensive to get around so we loved it.

Room Tip: The hotel is outside central Tokyo so any floor is fine.
