This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was nice, the host was very helpful, facilities were ok, although it is good if the owner can try to prepare light breakfast for extra services for extra charge. But overall it was nice specially the location, perfect.

For backpackers, this is the best choice in Nikko! It is extremely accessible to both "Tobu-Nikko" Station" and "JR Nikko" station, just within 3 minutes walk.

You can easily unload your heavy backpacks and start your sightseeing in Nikko. Tourist information center, buses, etc. are just located around the Tobu-Nikko station, which resolve all the anxieties that every traveller may have when travelling to a new place.

The hosts (Mr and Mrs Sato) are very friendly and approachable. They welcome you warm-heartedly. Unlike some other guesthouses who are just interested in making money, my impression of Nikko Guesthouse Sumica is that they want to make friends and interact with people from all over the world and most importantly, they want their guests to enjoy Nikko.

By the way, I am very impressed by the cleanliness of this guesthouse. The hosts even D.I.Y. many small little crafts (literally here and there - e.g. the toilet wall tiles) and make the place feels really "H-O-M-E-L-Y".

It was a pity I did not have too much time to really chat with the hosts though. In a nutshell, this is a safe, friendly and clean guesthouse which you could not ask for more, really, for just 3,000 yen a night - it is really value for money, I should say. Check it out yourself.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

At a two minute walk away from Tobu station, it's safe to say this guesthouse is in a good location. The owners are very friendly and helpful and will go to great lengths to make sure you have a good stay.
The only reason I rated the facilities at 3 stars is because there is only 1 shower and 2 toilets; this can be a hassle sometimes having to wait to take a shower or use the toilet. The state of the bathroom and toilets however was top notch.
The size of the room is good: there is enough room to store your pack or suitcase, unlike some hotels in Japan.
Something we had to get used to was that there were no locks on the door to the room. Typical Japanese I guess :)
Something I really liked about this guesthouse was the homely atmosphere of the place; once you got back to the 'living room' it was like coming home and this made the treshold for talking to other guests much lower than in most guesthouses I've been in.
If I were ever to travel to Nikko again I would certainly return to this guesthouse.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Our stay at the Nikko Guesthouse Sumica was extremely pleasant! The owners of the guesthouse were really helpful and warm. The weekend we were there was quite eventful. They invited us to a birthday party as well as a fullmoon party where we mingled with locals and drank sake all while dressed in traditional kimonos!
The rooms were clean as were the washrooms. It was a very cute and inviting place. It is also extremely close to the Nikko train station as well as the bus station that takes you to the other sights within Nikko. I would 100% recommend this guesthouse.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very nice small guesthouse. You are given the feeling that you are part
of the 'family', and the facilities are basic but more than adequate for the price.
The owners are extremely helpful and nice. I recommend this place without
any hesitation.
