Nikko Hotel Station Classic
Opened in 2010, this hotel is conveniently placed right across the road from Nikko station for ease of access. Transportation to Lake Chuzenji is right on your doorstep and the renowned Tōshō-gū temple is just a ten-minute drive away.
This hotel has a useful half-board option as the few local restaurants tend to shut early. With the range of Japanese and western options at dinner and breakfast, the hotel caters equally well for all its guests and provides a high level of service for a hotel which isn’t supreme luxury. The rooms are compact but perfectly comfortable with generously sized beds, and their hot spring baths (separate for men and women) are great to unwind in after a day exploring the temples. The outdoor onsen is particularly relaxing as one can watch the steam rising off the water while breathing in fresh air. Like a lot of Japanese establishments, they have started to offer free Wi-fi but so far only in the lobby area.
