A Winter Wonderland Christmas
This was a perfect stay for our family of 5 over three nights. We were in town for a hockey tournament. There were enough beds for all of us to sleep comfortably. Each of our kids had thier own bed and my husband and I shared the full/queen. Seriously, this might be the most comfortable place we have stayed in Japan over the last two years. My younger two really enjoyed the bunk bed set up. We woke up to a winter wonderland and the view from our room was breathtaking. I'm from southern California and so are my kids, so the snow was enchanting. It was a wonderful location to celebrate Christmas with the family in between games. Our villa had a microwave, toaster oven, and fridge with freezer, dishes, utensils, a kettle, more than enough towels and toiletries. The host is incredibly welcoming, kind, and informative. He had a map layed out and labeled for us in English of great places to eat and visit that were within walking distance. He took the time to explain it all to us. I enjoyed reading all the notes previous vistors have left in the guest books. Nikko is incredibly beautiful and this modern space fits in nicely, a few streets back from the main road.
From the big window downstairs. The villa has a little patio.
From the big window up stairs you can see the river flowing.
We brought our own little Christmas tree and woke up to this beautiful view!

Comfy, convenient, friendly, helpful... Marvelous
A marvelous stay in a spacious and well equipped apartment. Not just a room, it included a kitchenette and lovely views, and a certain personalized charm. Way more than one would expect for the price, especially suitable for a family. The hosts were super friendly and helpful. They had lots of good advice and were willing to find out more if need be. They spoke good English and pointed us to our best meal in Japan. I'd certainly stay here again and again.

Thanks for a great weekend getaway
Cute, comfortable place on the river. Short walk (~3 blocks) from downtown Central Nikko. Lots of food options nearby, and reasonable walking distance to Nikko Shrines. Owner was extremely helpful and provided lots of recommendations for restaurants, hiking, and sightseeing. Would gladly stay here again when I visit Nikko

6/10 Good

Very friendly welcome by the staff, they couldn't do enough. A lot of cameras in weird places which felt uncomfortable. Shared facilities could do with updating, especially living area and bathrooms.

Stay Nikko Guesthouse was extremely welcoming and cozy. We loved our little 2-level house with the roomy bunks. It was full of charm and had modern amenities. We were allowed to leave our bags early before check-in and also late after check-out so we were able to make the most of our stay. Definitely get the Japanese breakfast it was delicious! We highly recommend!

A home away from home in Nikko
We stayed for three nights while we explored Nikko and its magnificent surroundings. The owners were extremely friendly and made us feel at home from the very first minute we set foot inside. They went above and beyond to help us out with local information and a few small requests (earlier breakfast because of a morning train we needed to take). The room was clean and the bed perfect for a good night's sleep. The breakfast, in true Japanese style, was of amazing quality. Last but not least the availability of a Japanese shower with a hot bath topped things of nicely. We can't recommend Stay Nikko enough if you are looking for a place to stay in the area.
