The hotel is excellent. It's close proximity to the Akihabara district makes it one of the best for those seeking to visit Akihabara while not having to spend money on a cab. The rooms are a bit smaller than those most Americans are accustom to but they are very clean and do what they need to do.

From the moment we arrived, we knew the Niwa was the right choice. From the ryokan-feeling of the entrance and the friendly, helpful, English-speaking staff to the perfectly formed rooms and convenient amenities, we couldn't have been happier. A short walk from JR/Toei station Suidobashi, and maybe 10 minutes walk to Jimbocho metro, the hotel is well located. We booked in advance and got great rates, especially by Tokyo standards. We will definitely return on our next trip to Tokyo!

this hotel is simply amazing. Luxury all the way. The staff are very polite and cannot do enough for you. We had some super meals not to mention the fantastic cocktail waiter who produced the most fabulous drinks before your very eyes. Great meals in restaurant too. there was a spa and pool but we had no time to use it.....regrets !!!! A real wow factor. Easy transport to and from airports. Also, walking distance to shops and restaurants and there are masses of them. Gardens close by and a stunning fountain display. We stayed for 2 nights before we travelled to Kyoto. We loved it so much, we returned there for our last day.

The hotel is right next to the Tokyo Statioon and it makes traveling to other destinations super convent. Everything in the hotel is on upscale. The quality of faculties and service is flawless even in the Japanese culture.

I stayed here for a week as a base for exploring Tokyo. It was a good location - Suidobashi isn't a hotspot for tourists, and the hotel itself is set a block back from a main road, so it was fairly quiet. But it's 5 minutes walk to the JR station, and across the river is the subway station, so it's great for getting around Tokyo.
The room itself was very nice. It was adequate size; other travelers might comment on how small it is but this is typical of anywhere in Japan. I was traveling by myself so it was no problem. The room had a large single bed, and a washer-dryer with English instructions (washing powder can be bought in single serves from reception). There is a small fridge in the room but I think it only works when the room is powered - ie your room key is plugged in. So it will refrigerate overnight but not while you're out during the day.
The staff spoke good English. The room included buffet breakfast, which was pretty good compared to most Japanese hotels: toast, juice, tea & coffee, a salad, and a rotating hot food menu which included fried rice, scrambled eggs, hamburger steaks in sauce, and curry chicken.
The room included free wifi which was reliable and worked well.

"Nice hotel, great views, close to public transit"
We stayed for 10 nights and it was our base for exploring Tokyo and the surrounding areas. We had a room on the 14th floor (out of 17) so the view was incredible, although we were facing the city more than the imperial garden. The rooms don't start until floor 7- it is banquet halls and other things below that - so I'm sure most rooms on lower floors would have a good view too. The room was definitely on the small side, but we were perfectly comfortable. At home we sleep in a full sized bed, and I would say the bed in our room was a little smaller than that, so if you are used to a queen or king you might feel a bit cramped. Also, the mattress felt strangely hard and springy at first, and I thought it would be difficult to sleep on since I prefer a softer mattress, but it actually was quite comfortable, especially after getting used to it for the first couple nights - maybe this is just the kind of mattress they have in Japan?
The location could be more central to the downtown areas, but it is only 2 blocks from Hanzomon station and perhaps a 10 minute walk to another station (Nagatocho, I think). There were plenty of places to eat within walking distance of the hotel, too (we really liked a nearby noodle shop called Ibuki). The staff was very friendly and helpful, though their English was somewhat limited. We enjoyed our stay - no complaints!
