RIHGA Royal Hotel Hiroshima

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel isn't very modern, but still great. The rooms are big and have great views. The staff is very attentive. The beds are good, the bathrooms a bit outdated. Breakfast was above average. There are a range of different dining options and the top floor offers great views. The old-school feel of the hotel is good enough to accept the minor flaws. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hiroshima.

The rooms are spacious with a beautiful view over the city.The service is excellent and staff is very warm and polite.The hotel is huge and has plenty of facilities.The bed is amazing .The breakfast spread is very good.Overalll an excellent experience as we got to see the rainbow as well in morning over the city from our room.

We spent one night only in this hotel to visit the Memorial and museum before heading to Miyajima. The rooms and bathrooms are a bit dating but very big and comfortable. The view from the bedroom was great. It's a 10 min walk to the memorial and town, very good location. Staff professional and efficient. Many restaurants inside the hotel but too expensive for us.

I really nice, western style hotel, centrally located next to multiple shopping malls, subway and bus routes. A short walk to the major attractions and sites. The staff were great and many spoke excellent English (look for the UK or USA flags on their lapels). We were three adults trvelling together and normally staying in a triple room. However, at this hotel they had an amazing rate on double rooms and were able to afford two rooms for the price of one triple. These were large rooms with 2 queen beds each. Restaurant food was very good but a little pricey. Overall, a really nice stay and would definitely recommend.

My family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights to see the sights of Hiroshima. The hotel is very conveniently located in easy walking distance to the peace center, Hiroshima castle and the shopping district. The breakfast was good value with our 1000yen voucher and we had excellent teppanyaki in one of the several restaurants. We were put off with paying for the pool, and didn't use it. The 4of us stayed in a single room quite comfortably overlooking Hiroshima castle.

What I liked about the hotel is it is near to most of the attractions in Hiroshima. It is located within walking distance to the Hiroshima Castle, A bomb Dome, Peace Memorial Park and also Hondori (shopping and eatery). It is also just next door to the Sogo departmental store. The hotel itself is big. It has many facilities. However, I am irked that I have to pay something like 2700 Yen just to use the gym, pool and spa. There is no option to just use the gym. They ought to change their policy soon. Room itself is big. It has a nice big window for me to overlook the city. Bathroom comes with a bath which is a good thing. Room is also tidied up nicely everyday. There is nothing in the minibar, and there is a vending machine and ice dispenser at each floor of the hotel. Overall a nice stay, but really nothing that captures my imagination for a chain hotel.

I booked a room with a view of Hiroshima Castle, was spectacular. This room was also decently sized. Very polite and helpful staff. They gave vouchers for breakfast, pool, gym (yup you have to pay). Right next to SOGO & Edion, and Bus terminal, with tram station right in front, easy underground access, so very convenient. Overall good quality hotel, good experience.

Lovely, large hotel located well within walking distance of many of the key tourist spots in Hiroshima, also connected by a free (for JR pass holders) bus from the JR station. Spacious lobby, many staff willing and able to help with anything you may require (with no problems finding English speaking staff). Large rooms - dated, but well appointed and immaculate. Large bathroom with good water pressure and generous amenities provided. Excellent views from the 28th floor over Hiroshima. With the discount vouchers provided for breakfast, the buffet becomes quite good value. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again, or recommend to others.

We were very impressed with the RIGHA. There is a very large lobby and plenty of helpful employees. We had trouble figuring out how the room lights work (our fault) and someone appeared in minutes and cheerfully showed us. The room was not large but a good size for us and it had an excellent view of the city. The location is within walking distance of all of the things we wanted to see like the museum and ferry to Miyajima.

I stayed at the Rhiga during a trip around Japan. Ideally located, the rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and the staff friendly and attentative. The hotel is close to the bus terminal and a short walk from the Peace Park, Museum, Castle and other sites on the tourist trail. The restaurant food was very good, as was room service.
