Within walking distance to shrines. Be sure you get a good room, some are better than others. We stayed in room 18 in the original building, and it was great, large, sitting area, modern. The hotel itself is old, but very atmospheric. We had the meal plan, and the breakfast and dinner were excellent!!!! Service was wonderful, woman at the front wrote out in English all the directions to the shrines. Highly recommended.

My wife and I had spent our honeymoon night at this lovely and historic hotel -- the first Western style hotel in Japan. At 81 we wished to repeat the magnificent evening we had spent 58 years ago. Al”
Besides the pleasure of the hotel itself, its location provides great access to the shrines of the Tokugawa Shogunate and the famous Kegon Falls. Do be prepared to walk and that is walk uphill and downhill. It is a major tourist attraction so be prepared for fellow travelers. Many of the stairs around the shrines do not have railings, so a walking stick for the folks over 80 is not a bad idea. Nikko offers so much history and getting there only takes two hours by train. Compare with Kyoto, it can be done in two days and would be more reasonable.

A fading beauty in the best Nikko location”
We have really enjoyed our 2 nights stay here but this hotel may not be for everyone. If you like to stay in historical places this place is for you. It is a bit faded. Pros: Scheduled hotel shuttle bus from / to the station (even of you miss it the local bus stops near the hotel); Nice friendly staff; Lovely historical feel of the common areas; great views. LOCATION - very close to the main attractions - you can't get closer. Nice breakfast - go for the Japanese breakfast rather than Western (worth the extra payment); Large room with great view (we stayed in superior double); Access at discount price to the onsen at the other Kanaya hotel located on the lake - catch their shuttle there - 30-40 min very scenic drive. The onsen was great and not crowded. You can also catch a public bus there. We had dinner at the steak house right outside the hotel - it was excellent. Make sure to try the local Nikko mushroom. Note - Nikko is dead after 8pm and all restaurants are closed. Try Bar de Nikko for a meal one night - 5 min walk from the hotel, run by one men - excellent food and friendly. Cons: it is expensive; bathrooms are dated and toiletries are basic for the hotel of this ranking (packets of shampoo that are impossible to open with wet hands); no onsen on premises (but see above). When booking select the room with a view. A friend travelling with us chose "room allocated on arrival" that wasn't that much cheaper - and ended up looking at the roof with air-conditioning. Restaurants at the hotel are very expensive. No non-smoking rooms (not uncommon for Japan). Having said all that we would stay here again.

The hotel is an historic one in a very good location to the temples and shrines and close to a bus stop if you are planning on visiting Kegon Falls and Lake Chuzenji by bus. The staff is excellent--the waiter in the dining room was very helpful in accommodating my husband's dietary restrictions.

the hotel is too old”
the hotel is quite old meaning that the carpets are very dusty. the toilet is quite up to date. The room does not smell and it is quite large. Nevertheless, it still use old steam heater instead of a more modern one. The breakfast is quite plain. It is possible to access the hotel by shuttle bus from JR Nikko or Tobu Nikko and get off at stop 7.

Okd style beautiful rooms. Spacious. Exellent Omelette and Toast with marmelade. Bar with wide choice of whiskey.
After some hectic days in Japanese Cities most relaxing. Just walk to the temples in minutes. Comfortable bus to the Kegon waterfall. Notice that the Emperor Villa is closed on Tuesdays. Reception was very welcoming.

agodaで予約してはダメ!!!”
観光目的では二度と利用しないと決めました。 観光旅館やホテルはAgodaで予約しないほうがいいです。 他サイトより少し安く予約できるときもありますが、大抵はずれ部屋に回されますので。 (いまのところ何目的でも利用したくはないですが。) 観光ではなくビジネスや割り切った節約旅が目的ならいいでしょうが。 agodaのホテルとの連絡システムが上手く動いておらず、ホテルと連絡がとれませんでした。 連絡がとりたい場合はagodaのシステムを通してはいけません。 チャット式になっていて気軽に送れていいなと思ったものの、ホテルに届きません。 わたしの場合、ホテルと連絡が取れなったことで予約が2件になってしまい、内容の変更手続きが進まず、あやうくどちらかのキャンセル料とられるところでした。 システムのせいで内容が確定できなかったのに、(どんな事情があっても)このメールに返信しなかったらキャンセルかかります。という内容のメールをキャンセル手数料がかかる3~4時間前に平気で送ってきます。その前に電話が来てましたが、入浴中で出られず。着歴やメールが見られない状況だったらどうするの? そもそも、こちらはもうホテルと直接やり取りしてキャンセル手続きや内容変更はホテル側で行ない、こちらでの操作は不要と言われた上で上記のメールが送りつけられましたことも 操作不要と言われているのだから、メールチェックするかわかりませんよね?夜の9時頃のことです。 相手の事情を汲むことができないシステマチックな対応でした。 メールチェックできていなかったらと思うとキャンセル料請求されてたんでしょうね。怖いです。 やっと1通事情説明の連絡が来たと思えば質問の答えになってないので電話してくれと送り返しましたが、それから一切無視です。 ホテル側は上記のシステムエラーによる件で無料アップグレードしてくれたのですが、 当日デラックスルームには空きがあり、自分が予約した値段と大差なかったのであまりありがたみはなかったですね。更に本館や別館には泊まれなかったので。 仕方ないですが、残っていた空室はどこだったのかなと思ってしまいました。 ホテルは雰囲気があって好きですが、部屋割りが賭けになるので次回利用は考えるかもしれません。 ディナーと朝食は付けなくてもよかったかなと思いました。ディナーは味がいまいち、朝食は7時半と遅い。
