Hotel Niwa Tokyo

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

room is a bit small but the higher ceiling made up for the smaller footprint. Nice breakfast included for my stay.

The hotel is situated on a quiet street, in the center of Tokyo, making any place in the city relatively close. We were a family of two adults and two young children and the hotel was fine in that regard. Got a room on the 14th floor. Overall, nice stay.

The staff was exceedingly friendly and allowed me to check-in early without my even asking. The decor and opulence is a hidden gem. Stone and wood accents like a Japanese temple. Comfy and the buffet breakfast was great...though I wish they had cheese.

Hotel Niwa is reasonably priced but includes a number of nice touches--nice towels, well-designed coffee cups, little touches

This hotel is off the beaten path, tucked in between buildings, but within easy waking distance of the train station. It's location makes it quiet and convenient. The actual room is a perfect example of a small Japanese room with just enough space. The decor is stylish and the bed was comfortable. (The only complaint - there is a large threshold from the bathroom which meant several stubbed toes. Our guess is that it helps with containing possible water leaks.)

Only thing is the quite small room, otherwise very good hotel.

Nice hotel. Very good location. Very helpful staff. Clean room. Great breakfast buffet. Overall was an excellent choice.

Great location! I really enjoyed my time there and was treated well by the staff. Very cleaned area and highly recommend this hotel.

Have stayed at Hotel Niwa several times and it rarely disappoints. Well located on a quiet side street between Suidobashi and Jimbocho, the hotel is well located and provides easy access to public transport and any part of Tokyo. The rooms are small, but very comfortable. Would recommend.

The Hotel Niwa in Tokyo was amazing. A great value, was cheaper to stay there than at some low grade hotels in the states. Room was small but had everything we needed. Staff were great and the location is very close to a train station and the Tokyo Dome. Be sure to venture out to some of the local eateries.

The hotel is located in central Tokyo. The closest station, Suidobashi, is around a 3-5 minute walk away. The room was cleaned thoroughly every day. If you need recommendations on where to eat and what to do during your stay, don't hesitate to ask the staff. They try their best to provide you with everything. Overall, great stay.

Initially the hotel was a little difficult to find as it is in a back ally and not on the main street. The first night we went exploring and referenced a 7/11 to find our way back. This was a big mistake as there was one on almost every corner in that area! Hotel staff were friendly, welcoming and always willing to help. The rooms were clean and well looked after throughout the day. The rooms are a little on the smaller side but that seems to be the case with everything in Japan. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Hotel Niwa and would definitely come back.

Had a little difficulty first finding the hotel, but once we did everything was very easy. The Hotel Niwa is located in a central spot so transportation was very easy. There were a few little and good restaurants around it so that was handy. The hotel staff was very accomodating and helpful. They answered all of our questions and went out of their way to help us. The little touches in the hotel were the best (most luxurious) of the four hotels we stayed in (Kyoto, Nara, and another in Tokyo). The room was spacious, and was the only hotel of the four with a gym. We were very happy, and we absolutely have no complaints.

Very helpful staff for our first visit in Tokyo. The hotel is very close to subway stations and therefore very convenient. The amenities are exceptional - including fresh pajamas every day. Many restaurants and convenience stores around. We already plan to stay there during our next visit to an amazing city.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff was amiable and helpful, and the location was great for the price. Once you get there from Suidobashi station, you won't forget where it is. Suidobashi is right next to Shinjuku, Shiyuba, and Ueno, so you can't ask for better at this price. I'll never forget my stay.

This was a great place to stay for a vacation. I was here for about ten days and there was coin laundry which was perfect because it was HOT during my stay in Tokyo and being able to wash my clothes was a great amenity. They also had massage chairs, tables & chairs, and vending machines in the laundry area so I could relax while I waited for my clothes, if I didn't want to relax in my room. I also made use of the computer room to check for maps and routes for whatever I had planned for sightseeing. The hotel also had a work out room. One thing to expect from Tokyo, as it is a big city, there is noise and small rooms.... That being said, the rooms were clean and cozy. We stayed in a superior double room so it wasn't their smallest. However, the bathroom was pretty big (and there is a bidet type toilet). The room was clean and very comfortable. The staff were nice and bowed as they passed by. The reception staff almost all spoke english and they were friendly and helpful. They also did money exchange in the lobby, but you're limited to $200 USD per person per day. The only thing I didn't like about this place was that the entrance was in a dark area that looks like a back alley. I know this is because space is limited in Tokyo and not everyone can have a huge, grand entrance. My flight arrived at night and we had a harder time finding this hotel's entrance in the dark (about midnight). This was not a huge issue or anything, but perhaps its recommended that people don't go out alone at nights because its pretty dark around the area. Overall, this was a great place to stay at for a week and a half. It was close to a train station AND a subway station AND a bus stop. There was a convenience store next door that was open 24/7. There was also a small fast food "gyudon" type restaurant down the street that was open 24/7. I enjoyed my stay with Hotel Niwa Tokyo and I would definitely recommend it to a friend. It was a great value and I would stay there again for the location and price.

The attention, the place, the buffett, the pyjamas and all the service is really exceptional. Congratulations. If we returned to Tokyo, we will host in this hotel. The rail station is near and easy to use to go to all city and all country.

Niwa Tokyo is a small but very nice hotel. The room is small but very clean and functional. We have a comfortable stay. The location is good. It is not in the city center, but close to the train and subway stations. It is also close to Tokyo Dome and the Yasukuni Shrine. The immediate neighborhood is pleasant though not glamorous. My only complain is when I checked in, the staff told me they have to charge me for extra person (almost $30 per night). I got the same room, all they did was to give me an extra set of towel! Also, the check out time is normally 11:00 am. I asked if I can check out by noon, they said there will be a late check out fee (of approx. $20). I think these are just excuses to squeeze more money from their guests. Also, it will be nice if the hotel provides a simple continental breakfast (even for extra cost), like many motels in US do. I found that most Japanese eat noodle for breakfast.

Good hotel near Tokyodome.. great value and great location near train stations and many restaurants and stores

We were nicely surprised by this excellent hotel right in the center of Tokyo for a reasonable price. The room was a little bit small but that is what you would expect in Tokyo. Good JR and subway connections. We wish we had tried the hotel restaurant but had other commitments. All in all a very good experience. Will use it again next time.
