Narita airport to Century Southern Tower hotel

Hi,

Two of us will be visiting Tokyo for a few days, flying into Narita on 16/09 and landing is scheduled at 15:55.

With two luggages, just want to ask the easiest transport to hotel. Is it better by train or bus?

Advice appreciated.

- obviously it is easiest by bus, if the bus schedule works out for your arrival.

- I always take the train

Hello, Bibimbob,

I don't really follow you. Not have been to Tokyo for almost ten years, so, will it be more convenient by train then?

Thx

Time-wise, NEX easily beats Limo Bus.

However, Limo Bus gives you door-to-door service.

Which is best? That's up to you.

Consider Suica-NEX offer if you choose to go by train.

Bus is easier but train is faster and cheaper. As Dave said, which one to take is up to you.

Just in case you decide to take the NEX:

The bus will take you to the hotel (use the elevator to go up a few floors and you will be in the lobby)

The train will take you to Shinjuku and then you have to use escalators and walk to get to hotel. It is NOT a big walk (make sure you use southern terrace exit) but depending on your luggage and how tired you are, it could be annoying.

If I was going to Tokyo again, depending on my arrival time I would use the bus because its to the hotel but thats me.

The NEX platforms are right underneath the Southern Terrace exit so it's not like you have to spend a huge amount of effort to get up to terrace leavel. The walk to your hotel then is a really short walk of just a couple of minutes with no street crossings.
