This hotel made a good first impression, with a spacious, very clean lobby and fairly efficient check-in. The positive impression continued once I got to the room, which was very comfy and spacious - not something you necessarily expect in Japanese hotels. Amenities included tea and coffee service, minibar, robes, kimonos, slippers, everything basically that one would expect at this... More

My first visit to Japan was extremely enhanced by our stay at the RIHGA Royal. A bit off the central Tokyo location, but such a welcoming home base to return to on each excursion. Plentiful space, abundant amenities, luxurious bathroom, and gorgeous garden views along with Tokyo skyline make it an ideal stay. We had one rainy day that we... More

Located pretty much on the wesada campus, close to metro stop and a 1800 yen cab ride from the heart of shinjuku. I suggest this are and hot if you want to be close to the madness of shinjuku but far enough to not actually have to dea with the crowds.

No doubt, we loved this hotel! It is clean and beautiful! We were also not sure if it was a new hotel, or a immaculately kept older hotel. It is beautiful. We found that when were out touring the city, the hotel was too far to go back to when we wanted to get a break. A couple of times... More

Stayed two nights in this beautiful hotel, staff were very attentive and helpful. Room was large, nice bathroom, amenity kits provided. Buffet breakfast was substantial with both Japanese and Western cuisine offered. Didn't manage to visit hotel gardens as the entry was closed on our first day and there was a wedding exhibition the second day. Would have given a... More

This hotel has an old world charm. Not sure if it is an old hotel well maintained or a newer hotel designed to look like a grand hotel of old. The lobby is expansive, there is a terrace overlooking the gardens for high tea, immaculate fitness centre and an old English gentleman's club like cigar bar. The hotel backs on... More

We stayed here 2 nights and unlike other hotels in Tokyo, the room are spacious and nice design. This hotel is more of a western design rather than traditional Japanese design. The toilet had all necessities that we needed, bath tub, shampoo, etc. It even has a currency exchange machine in the lobby :)

A very beautifully set up hotel with a grand entrance and immaculate hallways and lobbies. Our luxury twin room was larger than most with a spacious bathroom. We were facing the back so very little noise and rooms seemed solid. It's a shame the hotel charges for use of the pool - we didn't go in the end but could... More

A very grand hotel with a lobby full of paintings and statues - staff very friendly and helpful as with most places in Japan. Rooms have seemingly recently been refurbished, so no issues with cleanliness or wear and tear. Location is ok, a regular shuttle bus takes you to a close by train station so this is not a big...

My second visit here after 4 years and it is still a good traditional experience. A bit far from the city but the shuttle service is really handy. We couldnt find the swimming pool which i assume us not located on site. Good sized and clean rooms. Excellent service and nice experience in general.
