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

I stayed here 3 nights during the first week in August. As a matter of fact, I've stayed at this hotel countless times since it was founded in 1994. Since the hotel faces Waseda University's garden and Waseda High School is nearby, it creates an atmosphere of a students' quarter. It's also a general residential area, so I don't think... More

Recently stayed at the Rihga Royal Hotel for business for 7 days, and it was overall a wonderful stay. I've been to Japan on several occasions, but this was my first stay at this hotel chain. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly, as expected from most Japanese hotels. I do have some Japanese language ability, but I found... More

My family (husband, children ages 14 & 8, and myself) stayed here May 29- May 31, 2015. We are always looking for a place to stay that can accommodate a family and is easily accessible via train. We arrived at Narita Airport and took the NEX to Shinjuku Station then transferred to the JR YAMANOTE Line (Outer Loop) to Takadanobaba... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently. The hotel and our room was nice and large (especially for Japan!) and the staff were of course polite and helpful. Their English is good enough as well, better than my Japanese! Not in the centre of town but they have a free shuttle every half an hour to Takadanobaba station which is... More

We stayed here for a university trip and this hotel was great. The rooms were very clean and spacious with a separate lounge room. The furniture was quite royal! The bathroom was also spacious with two sinks and a large shower/bath. The view over the garden was beautiful. Although not near a train station we used the free shuttle which... More
