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.
