I stayed here for the first and last two days of my trip to Japan, and without a doubt this was the best hotel I stayed in. The rooms are standard Japanese size (small compared to Western standards), but I found them to be very clean and well maintained. They also give you a free bottle of water everyday, which I found to be a very nice touch. Laundry machines are located on certain floors, which is a lifesaver if you're traveling light. Oh and the showers in the Forus rooms are amazing! Incredible water pressure and massage options.
The service at the front desk was impeccable too, and they even gave me a nice pocket map of Tokyo's subway lines with useful Japanese phrases (with English translations of course) on the back. Very polite and friendly, and they helped me with various things like sending luggage to another hotel via Ta-Q-Bin).
Location wise, it's located in the middle of a business district I think, but there's a lot of restaurants around so finding food shouldn't be a problem. It will be busy though, since a lot of salarymen will be hitting up those food places. A Family Mart is also located right next to the hotel, which I frequented a lot. It's about a 5 minute walk to Yaesu North entrance of Tokyo Station, but be warned that it'll take a bit longer to reach the actual train you want to get on. Tokyo Station is absolutely massive and shouldn't be underestimated. Akihabara is also really close by if that interests you (2 stops).
Flawless experience in my book. Also, free Wifi! For some reason, all the other hotels I visited had free internet in the form of a Ethernet jack. Hotel Ryumeikan was the only one that had actual Wifi in the room. I'll definitely visit again on my next trip to Japan.
