Dining

Grill & Bar Lieu
The Grill & Bar Lieu takes its name from the French word for "place", which - in a linguistic coincidence that resonates with the sound of the stream in the hotel's inner courtyard - is phonetically identical to the Japanese word for "flow". With an impressive wine cellar and a wide selection light, healthful, Provenal-style dishes made from seasonal vegetables, prime-cut meats and poultry, and fresh-caught seafood, it offers a dining experience that is sure to delight.
Japanese Restaurant Yukuri
Located across the garden courtyard from the hotel's main building, Yukuri takes its name from an ancient Japanese word that means "to achieve rapport." Here you can experience authentic kaiseki cuisine in a setting that is at once modern and traditionally Japanese. Whether you enjoy your meal with a sweeping view of the garden courtyard, or in the intimacy of Yukuri's private dining room, it will be a culinary experience you are sure to treasure.

Fulfill my Tokyo vacation by staying here

Prior to my arrival I was written to the hotel asking for non-smoking floor and high floor. I was arrived on Wednesday 5 Dec 12 afternoon and found the check-in process was very efficient, they have provided what I have requested. Staffs are speaking good English.. Room was very comfortable and very decorated with care in every single detail. You will have a pyjamas that the hotel changes daily for you. Next to the hotel is the convenience store where you can get some good snacks, soft drinks, and ice creams whenever you want. After a short walk (turn your back on the hotel, walk left 50m, and turn left again then walk another 100m, then cross the road) you will reach JR Suidobashi station where you can easily reach Shinjuku, Akiba (Akihabara), or Tokyo station within 15 minutes including any transit if required. Just across the station located McDonald's (24/7) and Staarbucks (open until 10.30pm), Tokyo Dome, and Suidobashi subway station. This is an ideal place to stay for. I have been staying for five nights, and surely I will return to this hotel for my next visit.

Go to the hotel's gym room and utilize the massage chairs after your long walk during the day. It was very very relaxing. The gym room was closed at 10pm but actually you can stay a little longer.

clean but not in the center of universe

The hotel is nice. Rooms are not big but clean. TV channels are only in Japanese (this might be a problem for those who like to watch TV :). The staff is very welcoming and helpful. However, the level of their English could be better. Also, they will help you with basic stuff but when you start asking complicated questions (such as booking a ticket to a concert or helping set up a visit to a sumo training center...), you won't get much help and will have to do it yourself. The hotel's location is not the best for those who like to be in the center of things. For those who, on the contrary, like it calm and quiet, this will be one of the best options. Another thing is about the internet access. While the hotel has free WiFi, it seemed to work extremely slow which made this free internet virtually unusable. If free internet is your deal breaker, don't count on the hotel's free WiFi.

Get Japan Rail Pass before you travel to Japan. It if only available for foreigners and could only be bought outside Japan. It will save you lots of money if you plan to actively travel by railways. It also works on some of the central lines in Tokyo.

Near-perfect stay for a single traveler

The hotel clearly aims for the high-minded traveler, who does not mind trading off some space for refined comforts. Internet access is available as WiFi or wired (Ethernet). There are a number of eateries around, along with being within walking distance to the Tokyo Dome complex, which has plenty of restaurants and entertainment options, separate from other popular (Shinjuku, Shibuya, etc.) options. It is located in a relatively quiet part of Tokyo, but at least is nearby to the Suidobashi stop along the Sobu JR line train, along with a stop along the Toei Subway line. In fact, one can say it is in the middle of the city, as the Imperial Palace grounds are 15-20 minutes walking distance south of the hotel.

Because the transit system runs according to the airline schedules, there is no reason to ever take a taxi from your hotel to either airport. Always make use of the transit system, as it is truly the way any (fiscally) sensible resident would get to the airport.

A Gem Of A Hotel

After reading all the glowing reviews about the hotel in your website, we decided to make our reservation. And we could not have been more pleased with the hotel. All the reviews were right on. Starting with the big smile that the front desk attendant was displaying, as soon as we entered the front door. The hotel is only three years old, and so beautifully decorated. Simple elegant japanese decor. Clean as can be, and the employees take pride in keeping it that way. The rooms, although not too large, are adequate. Service was efficient and friendly. The hotel is conveniently located about five minutes walk from the Suidobashi station, and we were able to find it with the help of the local people. Very quiet location, yet centrally located. Very nice restaurant in the premises, although a little expensive. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer.

Tokyo Dome

The primary purpose of my visit to Tokyo was to see baseball games being played at the Tokyo Dome. For this purpose the hotel was excellent, as it was only a 5 minute walk to the Dome. The hotel, while not large was clean and pleasant. Close to a train line, transportation around the city was not a problem. It is also only a 20-minute walk, through a busy (read: vibrant) area, to the Imperial Palace. If you plan on spending a lot of time in your room, take a pass on this hotel. But if you plan on having a comfortable and convenient place to rest your head in between days of sight-seeing. I recommend this hotel.

Good location, well priced

This is a very nice smaller hotel in a quiet part of town, but with several train/metro stations nearby one can easily access any part of the city.

A great choice

Just what I expected. Not a super bargain, but not out of line either. Very convenient to a JR subway line (which means your JR railpass covers it), although if coming in from Tokyo station, you do have to transfer at the second stop to catch a local train (to take you the one more stop). The Japanese breakfast is expensive, but no more so than at all similar hotels.

A good, clean, and super quiet hotel

Hotel NIWA is located a short walk from the much larger, more famous, and I'm sure, more expensive Tokyo Dome Hotel. I took the Airport Limousine service from Narita AP to Tokyo Dome hotel and walked the short two or three block distance to Hotel NIWA. Hotel NIWA is a little hard to find as it is nestled away amongst the small businesses and schools of the surrounding neighborhood. But it is a truly welcome find. Impeccable rooms, extraordinarily friendly, and efficient staff, and a peaceful garden atmosphere. The hotel is so quiet at times I felt like I was the only guest. I found it a little difficult to communicate with hotel staff but always found at least one or two of the staff who spoke English well enough to converse with. The hotel is also easy walking distance to the Metro subway system and JR rail. Overall I considered my self lucky to have found Hotel NIWA and truly enjoyed my stay there.

Great Hotel

The hotel was very nice. The staff were accommodating, and reasonably fluent in English. The room was a bit small, but that is pretty common among Japanese hotels. The Suidobashi station, which is next to the hotel, is about 10 minutes away from Shinjuku and Tokyo stations (the two largest stations in Tokyo).

Hotel Niwa is only about 10 minutes away from Tokyo Dome, which is a large amusement park. It also has a shopping center and food area, and is definitely worth visiting.

Fantastic Tokyo

Great location. A short walk from Suidobashi Station, which is central to Tokyo. The service and room size was excellent. Has massage chairs, which are absolutely wonderful after a long day. Staff was friendly and spoke English well. Would certainly go back and highly recommended. Only downside is wifi is slow and hard to connect to in the building, still went to a cafe for better service

Buy a Suica/Pasmo card from the Suidobashi JR station. You can use it within the Tokyo subway and bus system, as well as vending machines and businesses that accept the Suica/Pasmo card. The card is easy to recharge (add Japanese Yen) through the machines in the station. Look for the English button in the upper left of the machine!
