A winner of Best Service in theTraveler’s Choice Award 2012, the Hotel Niwa Tokyo is one of the top 10 hotels for service in Japan. For a country that is world-renowned for its excellent service, that is a serious accolade. The word niwa means “garden” in Japanese, and the hotel’s convenient location in Central Tokyo between two stations, Suidobashi and Jimbocho, makes it a real oasis of calm in an otherwise bustling metropolis.
The hotel lives up to its name, with a refreshing smattering of greenery at the front entrance. Entering the lobby reveals a stylish inner-décor, with a wonderful mix of Japanese traditional and modern styles. The hotel also has a Japanese-style inner garden which adds to the relaxing ambiance of the building’s architecture.

There are a wide range of rooms to choose from, Standard, Superior, Comfort and Premium, depending on guests’ individual wishes. The rooms are neatly designed and laid out, even down to the smallest detail. For example, each room has a safe, but within the safe is a power socket for charging expensive electrical items.
