Like alot of other reviews , I will say that the hotel is a "little out of the way" , but only a little . That aside - it was great . From the rooms , to the staff , to the restaurants . We would stay here again .

We stayed in this old elegant and classy hotel 4 nights and was a perfect base for Tokyo visiting. High level services and rooms, shuttle service to the center. Expensive but with some good offer is affordable. Very very kind service all over

I booked the junior suite in this hotel for our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers). The suite was pretty large and there was a connecting door between the living area and bedroom, meaning you could make it two bedrooms. The bathroom was huge and had the most bathroom amenities I've ever seen (brushes, combs, face masks, toothbrushes, etc.).... More

Hotel a little far out of the Tokyo hustle and bustle but that didn't bother us at all. We found plenty of great restaurant within 1km walking distance that were amazing and the complete authentic Japan experience. The shuttle bus took you to the nearest subway and jr rail line. Ran every Half hour. Always on time and so quick... More

Have stayed here a few times and always happy. My criteria for a good hotel is good bathroom with easy to use shower and lots of hot water and a comfortable bed. This has both and more. Air conditioner works well and there is lots of room which is unusual for a Japanese hotel room. Very generous good quality amenities... More

Nice and clean hotel. The only downside is that there is no shuttle bus close by so to get to Narita takes at least 3 to 4 hours. There are 3 restaurants down in the Lobby. Otherwise service okay and rooms relatively large for Japan.

In spite of its age, this is a very well maintained hotel. Located in a university area, it is ideal for those who are avoiding the busy areas. Has access to Okuma Garden leading to Waseda University. Provides bus shuttle service to and from Takadanobaba Station which is very convenient. The room is big and very nice, very good value...

Luxury hotels rarely age well. At the very least, they are surpassed by newer five star hotels, and in the worst cases, they start to look tired. Rihga Royal is twenty years old now, so is right in the danger zone, but its quirky, "classical European" decor has held up well, and if you are prepared to pay a little... More

To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household.
