RIHGA Royal Hotel Tokyo

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed for 3 nights here earlier in the month and absolutely loved it. Although a couple of km from Shinjuku this possibly is the best place to stay in the area. The bus service to the station is excellent. The room was very comfortable and the staff is possibly the best hotel staff we have met. The most courteous and helpful hospitality staff we have met. Will surely stay here on our next visit here.

Very comfortable, clean, generous sized rooms. Very helpful staff. Breakfast could be more interesting but certainly provides a range of options both Japanese and Western. Right on the doorstep of Waseda University, less than 10 minutes to Waseda Station, and in good position to access great restaurants and cafes.

We stay 4 nights in the hotel recently in one junior suite with adding two extra beds for our two teens. The service is great and breakfast is very good. The hotel nears the best college in Tokyo and in a very safe quite area. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to shinjuku station via taxi. We usually take hotel shutter bus and sometime just walk to waseda station.

Amazing hotel. Friendly staff. Nice location for the subway. First class service and rooms. Just an wonderful experience. Highly recommended to all. Nothing was too much trouble. We had an great view of the city which made the experience that much more memorable

This is an excellent hotel at a reasonable price in Tokyo. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, they offer a free shuttle bus to the train/subway station which will take you anywhere in Tokyo you want to go. A great dining room and a helpful concierge. Clean and quiet.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 days 4 nights. Heartwarming welcome received from the hotel. Thank you for the welcome cookies & biscuits. The room was clean & neat!Comfortable bed. Renew toiletries everyday (they do prepare bubble bath, skin care, make up remover and etc....). Also,they do provide shuttle bus to Takadanobaba station. Staffs are really friendly and smiling face always. Overall, above my expectation.

Close to Waseda Uni so a feeling of space and views of greenery. Yipee. Be aware: there is an outbreak of Louis the 16th design in the whole place. I never really understood why this style was popular. Staff as excellent as only the Japanese can be. Very close to various eateries. Breakfast eye wateringly expensive but nice. Shuttle bus to station.

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel and we're made to feel very welcome by the excellent staff. The normal rooms are ok, nothing special but if you have a room at the back it has great views of the garden. The facilities in the room are good enough i.e. A kettle etc. The TV doesn't have any English speaking channels for those, like myself, who like to watch a bit of TV in bed, However there is a Blu-ray player in the room which has a USB port and the TV takes HDMI. The room we had did smell a little bit of old cigarettes which we think was seeping through the air con system. We didn't try the restaurants but they looked very nice although very expensive so we opted to try the local places. It's not far from Waseda metro station so getting around wasn't an issue.

We had a nice stay. They were able to accommodate a family of 4 in one room - many places couldn't. Had a nice view of a park right in back and the city. Nice big bathroom. 10 minute walk to the subway makes the location workable to see the whole city. Lots of good food in the area. There are some high end restaurants right in the hotel & the food looked great but we didn't eat there. We had a car for our trip and we were able to park in the underground garage. Many hotels don't provide any parking. Good value

The hotel is spacious and the staff were very welcoming. They run a shuttle to the subway lines which connects you to anywhere in Tokyo. The Waseda district where the RIHGA is located has lots of great cafes and little shops as it is right next to the university. We had amazing coffee from a little place called Mojo's every day
