Built at the foot of the Bandai Bashi, a famous bridge that spans the mighty Shinano, the hotel is within easy walking distance of Niigata’s many restaurants and bars, and its famous sake distilleries that are numerous across the city - thanks to the city’s longstanding reputation as one of Japan’s finest rice producers.

Enjoy local seafood from the nearby Sea of Japan at Japanese restaurant Yahiko and Cantonese delicacies at Toh-Ka-Lin. The Edinburgh Bar is known for its impressive Whiskey list, opening in the late afternoon and long into the evening.
