Overlooking the harbour, although there is a highway in between. It's a fair step to the nearest MTR station in either direction. The nearby Coliseum hosts rock concerts, while impromptu music sessions sometimes spring up in Tsim Sha Tsui East plaza.
Perhaps it's the Japanese influence, but there are plenty of smoking rooms in the Nikko's complement of 463. The décor is a little dated, but the rooms are larger than average, with a big work desk and a laptop-friendly safe.
The marbled lobby is by no means extensive; the shops in the basement feature the sort of prices traditional to such establishments.
Eating and drinking
The Japanese restaurant is obviously the most authentic, and looking good having reopened after renovation in October 2010; the Chinese is also good. Les Célébrités - French, as you might imagine - makes a good effort.
The rooftop pool is perhaps the hotel's best feature; the adjacent fitness centre works well too.
Service is without any doubt one of the Nikko's great strengths, with the Japanese philosophy that the customer is not just always right, but totally infallible.
Who stays there
Japanese guests predominate, with a leavening of other nationalities.
Several other hotels operate in the immediate area, so cross-check rates.
