Reviewed 15 May 2014

we stayed in a typical Japanese style room (ryokan style) with beds on the floor and paper windows. the room was cozy, beds were comfortable and the toilet was ok, even if not too big. Nikko is a cold place, and nights were cold too, but the room had an electric stove that heated well the room. what's cool about this hotel, anyway, is the onsen that guests can use for free, even if it's most likely that you'll have to wait a bit for the onsen to be vacant, since it's quite popular among the guests. if you go to the onsen during the day, you'll be able to have a nice view of the river passing close to the hotel. the position, indeed, is a bit distant from the center of Nikko: you'll have to walk for about 10 min. before you reach the main road, but you'll find a convenience store and the bus stop as you get to the main road. the position is quiet, and I think it's worthy not to be on the main road but a bit outside the center of the city. the staff speaks english (which's never an obvious thing to find, in Japan). I strongly suggest the breakfast in the hotel, which's really good.

Very friendly owner/operator. Interesting part of town - easy to access the sites. However, the hostel itself is hard to find when you first get to town. It is quite a way from the station and you have to cross the river twice. It was clean and neat. Private rooms. Very quiet area.

We went to a nearby chinese food restaurant which the owner recommended for dinner. It was quite good.

Enjoyable onsen with a nice view. Can be used by couples with an 'occupied' sign,

Good breakfast.

First went here 20 years ago and it was newly opened with an amazing onsen overlooking the river. It is still just as nice and homey as back then. A bit of a hike from the train stations (JR and Asakusa) but well worth it. Not a terribly long hike to Toshugu and all of its wonders. The trail behind is just great as well. Will not wait 20 years to go back.

Along with our friends, we were the only guests the second night of our stay, although there were others on the first night. Location is peaceful and near the sites but a bus ride or long walk from town. This meant a long trek for dinner as the place only did evening meals on Saturday. Enjoyed the onsen which unusually you could lock for private use. Breakfast good. Hosts friendly. Rooms adequate but nothing fancy.

The tourist information center in Nikko station recommended here, so we stayed here without any information, and it was mistake.

I visited here with my mother and she said the room was not clean at all. At first to me it looked okay, but later my mother said she saw a cockroach between the blankets. Ewwwww. What a terrible hotel.
The blankets are not clean at all, so we couldn't sleep well. Not comfy.

And no hairdryer in the room, and Japanese style common bathtub was always occupied, so we waited more than 1 hours for using the bathtub.
