We had a very early flight from Tokyo to Kyoto so opted to spend our final night in the Tokyo area near the airport as transport options are non-existent early in the morning. It's worth bearing in mind that Narita airport is a LONG WAY from downtown Tokyo. We took a train from Asakusabashi and it took about 90 minutes to get to the Narita. Get off the train at Narita (not the airport stop, the one before) and the hotel is practically connected to the train station. It is very straightforward to find.
The hotel itself is a large, purpose built airport hotel. They offer a shuttle service to and from the airport but book it quickly as it fills up. We couldn't get on it so ended up getting the train which was quick and painless even early in the morning.
Reception staff were efficient and polite and spoke a little bit of English - enough to understand we were checking in anyhow! The room was excellent, very comfortable and well appointed. The room was small, though not as small as some rooms in Tokyo and was very clean with all the facilities you would expect from a mid-range hotel. The bed was very comfortable and we got an excellent night's sleep.
Narita itself is a fantastic place and well worth a visit. We checked in to the hotel early (and left our bags with the concierge and you cannot 'check-in' early very often in Japan) and walked into Narita. It is a stunning, traditional Japanese village with one of the oldest temples in Japan. The temple area was spectacular and we spent several hours walking around the grounds, watching the fire ceremony and seeing the monks going about their daily business. A must-see and only 15 minutes from the hotel. The hotel is also surrounded by bars and restaurants so plenty of places to eat and drink.
All in all I would highly recommend this hotel. The service, accommodation and location are all excellent and it is very convenient for Narita airport.
