Daiichi Hotel Ryogoku

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Tokyo has thousands of hotels; trying to find one that suits budget, location and accommodates personal requirements takes time and great patience. Dai-ichi hotel Ryogoku hit all our preferences and more. Room 2316 overlooks the Sky Tower, amazingly lit up at night, and gives such a view of the city that one can consider not needing to buy a ticket for the Tower! One simply needs to walk across the corridor to see the other side of the city! The room was well appointed, roomy and amazingly quiet saying that Ryogoku JR station is five minutes away, walking. The trains do stop running overnight but kick in around 6:45am, so my wife told me; a light sleeper may find this annoying but it was fine for me. The breakfasts, on The 25th floor, offered Japanese and western food, plenty of it, all presented and prepared to very high standards: well worth buying the option. The restaurant on the ground floor served lovely cuisine to an excellent standard well within most budgets and certainly a better deal than many a London restaurant. On all occasions the staff were superb; those on reception spoke English and others were able to understand if not quite fluent. Would I stay there again? Absolutely! Obviously, prices vary according to season and your lead-in time so one must factor these into your assessment.

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times on separate visits, and would recommend this place for a cheaper option stay, but still have breathtaking views of the city day or night! It is also convenient located with many transport links, and only a 10 min train journey from Tokyo main station.

It is in a quiet location away from the city yet not too far from most downtown attractions. Pretty safe neighbourhood with mostly middle aged people and families. There are eateries around the JR station, a family mart and some pastry shops around the hotel. Room is quite small but enough to sleep in for a few nights if you're going to be out and about most of the days. Toiletries, alarm, air filter, coffee and tea, bottle water, hair dryer, slippers, bathrobes, towels are all well stocked for our room. Breakfast is limited but good enough for a hearty meal before we start the day. Staff are quite friendly and helpful though they can't speak much English.And having such a panaromic view of the city for a downtown hotel is very rare. I rate it 4-star because I wish the hotel will refurbish the rooms with more modern facilities like a more spacious shower instead of a tub so taller and bigger people don't have to feel crammed up while taking their shower, and upgrade the room to make more space for luggage bags and movement. I know some modern boutique hotels are smaller but they create space by removing all the loose furniture and building in shelves to replace tables, wall mounted TV panel etc.

Awesome hotel. We needed to be close to sumo stadium, and that we was. Close to railway station, restaurants and close to down town Tokyo Room was really compfy with great views out our window. Highly recommended

This was an excellent hotel. My family of three and I stayed here for a week. This hotel is part of the good neighbor hotels and offer a complimentary shuttle to Disneyland and Disney Seas. This was very helpful! Our room had a great view and location. The hotel is close to restaurants, 7-11, Lawsons, a park with a playground next door, and the Ryogoku E12 stop on the Oedo line.

I loved our had a great view and it was very clean. Close to sumo activities and good restaurants. The breakfast was included in our room price and it was delicious! They had a fresh ground coffee maker that made yummy coffee....perfect way to start the day!

The hotel is located in a very nice area, a little bit far from the JR station but with plenty to offer from Tokyo Edo Museum to the sumo houses around the area. The view from the room is amazing, with Tokyo Skytree shining in the night. The only problem I encountered was the staff from the reception, extremely cold and unfriendly and made me feel unwanted. The staff had the same attitude towards other Japanese guests from what I could see.

Ryogoku Sta.(Oedo Line) & EdoTokyo Museum is quite near. Ryogoku Sta.(JR) about 7 minutes by walking. 14 &18 F can see the Tokyo Skytree, you can buy the tourist ticket in 1F There are convenient stores(Sunkus, 7-11) nearby.

Initially, we were not off to a good start. We arrived at our triple room to find one of the duvet covers quite obviously stained. However when we contacted reception about this matter, housekeeping came immediately to change it. The next morning the manager spoke personally to me to apologise and to assure that things have been put in place to avoid a recurrence. Glad that this was dealt with quickly. The room was not overly large and it was a bit cramped with 3 people and two suitcases. was a triple. It was quiet and comfortable and did us well for our 6 night stay. The bathroom is a good size and the shower had good pressure and temperature. There was a small fridge and kettle. One side of the hotel has wonderful views of Skytree, the other side has a nice enough view of the vast Tokyo skyline. It is a 5 to 10 minute walk from the train station and the subway is directly underneath the hotel which is extremely convenient. This hotel was well placed for us to access the Tokyo Dome and was a good location in general although the area did not seem to offer an overly vibrant nightlife. A shuttle bus to Disneyland is included in the rate and this was another attractive feature. We did not have breakfast at the hotel but purchased our needs from the 7/11 style convenience store across the road (there is also one in the hotel ground floor). The staff were helpful and efficient and I would be happy to stay here again.

Miracles do occur.......if you put enough work into it. I was in Japan on business and found out there was a sumo tournament happening, of course vastly sold out. After trying to find a hotel in the Ryogoku zone I miraculously got a booking via for the Dai-ichi and really didn't care much about what was going to happen other than it was close to the sumo. I was pleasantly surprised. Check in was smooth and efficient and the staff spoke competent English (though he did remind me three times that check out time was 11am). I was happy about this because all I wanted to do was run to try to scalp a sumo ticket. The room was small, but not by Japanese standards, and efficient. The bed was comfy and clean. Ever important to the biz traveler, the wifi was solid and easily accessible. There were two complimentary water bottles in a small fridge which is a nice touch. The view was pretty nice, aimed right at the Skytree from the 24st floor. There is good access to subway stations from the hotel. I will stay there again given the chance.
