Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport Arrival and Check-In
The Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport is one of the most convenient options if you have an overnight at Tokyo Narita and don't want to stay at a capsule hotel. It's a 10-15 minute free shuttle ride away, and the shuttle comes about every 20 minutes during the peak periods of 8-9:40am and 4:30-10pm.
After arriving, we did have to wait in line quite awhile to check-in, as there were many of us on the shuttle and just two associates checking guests in.
Standard Room, Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport
For our overnight stay, we booked a standard twin room. It's 269 square feet, so not large, but we barely spent any time in it apart from sleeping. As the curtains were drawn, it was a bit gloomy when we first entered:
But the beds were in good condition and comfortable enough for an airport hotel:
There was plenty of desk space and a comfortably supportive desk chair for working, as well as a flat screen TV:
Underneath the TV were coffee and tea making facilities, although I recommend bringing your own tea or instant espresso, since the offerings were limited to Lipton tea and Nescafe instant coffee.
It was overcast on the day we were there, but it was still nice to gaze out at trees rather than high rise buildings.
And when we looked down at the foliage right by the hotel, we noticed some pretty cherry blossoms–staying in early April, we'd caught some of the cherry blossom season. I remember when I lived in Japan, “sakura zenzen” was a regular part of the weather forecast, detailing the cherry blossom season as it moved up the Japanese archipelago.
Back to our room: the bathroom was small, as you'd expect for an airport hotel.
There was a bathtub-shower combo:
Bath products were Peter Thomas Roth, which I haven't seen since a stay years ago at Le Parker Meridien New York. No matter–I always bring my own toiletries. As at many Asian hotels, a dental kit with toothbrush and toothpaste was provided, in case you forgot yours, a nice touch that avoids having to ring housekeeping.
Another thing I appreciate about Japanese hotels is that just about all of them, including the Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport, provide slippers, in addition to bathrobes.
I liked that the temperature control was part of the bedside console, and that it was easy to determine if the clock alarm was on or off. One of the worst things, in my book, are alarms that are hard to set or to determine if they're on, and which go off at an ungodly hour due to the previous occupant's setting.
Breakfast Buffet at Terrace Restaurant
I'd booked a room only rate, although thanks to Hilton Gold status we received breakfast vouchers, valid for the breakfast buffet at the Terrace Restaurant off of the lobby.
We didn't eat a full breakfast there, so as to leave room to sample lounge offerings before our flight, but there were plenty of choices, with the Japanese options on the whole much more appetizing.
There were cooked options, such as broiled salmon, breakfast meats, scrambled eggs, and baked beans:
If you weren't up to cooked foods, there was also fruit and various types of yogurt, and a cheese assortment:
For picky eaters, pancakes would probably be a good bet, although they didn't look especially good as far as pancakes go:
Smoked salmon was served with onions, and the salad greens and tomatoes looked especially good, if you fancy salad for breakfast:
Naturally, there was miso soup with accompaniments….as well as the infamous natto.
After breakfast, we made our way through the lobby to catch the airport shuttle. We saw one of the friendly staff in a gorgeous kimono, so we asked to take a photo and she graciously obliged:
The Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport is a solid airport hotel, and we experienced a clean room and good service, after a rather long wait to check-in. The shuttle service was reliably on-time, although aim to time your arrival for peak times where there is service every 20 minutes, or if you've just missed it, consider taking a taxi.
