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.

We stayed here for 8 nights. When we got there, the place was amazing. It really felt like a palace or a castle. The lobby and the hallways are always quiet and peaceful. We booked the Junior Suite. The room is just for 2 people but since there were 4 of us, we needed extra beds. When we arrived at... More

The Rihga is an old fashioned luxury hotel that would suit those that seek a more traditional hotel but struggles to stand up to the modern styling of more contemporary hotels in the Shinjuku region. The rooms were clean but were showing slight signs or wear and tear. That being said if you opt for a junior suit you are... More

I only stayed one night, to visit nearby Waseda University. I would have enjoyed a second day to explore the pond and paths in the back. The hotel has the old-time grandeur not seen in newer hotels. The elevators have art deco details right out of the Empire State Building. The room was not particularly large but was very comfortable.... More

Ok. I like the fact that the hotel has a shuttle bus that runs from the hotel to the Takada nobaba subway stop. I wish they had a shuttle from the airport though, this was my first time in Tokyo and trying to figure out the subway system on the fly got me extremely nervous. But I figured it out... More

Although I already wrote a review for this hotel on 2015 August (please check my current review : 2015 August), this time I realized some things, so I'm going to add about that. I stayed here from April 11 to 20 (9 nights) in room 1215. As I reviewed before, it's a very familiar hotel in Tokyo since they were... More

We very much enjoyed this hotel for our vacation week in Tokyo. It is near to the Waseda subway station (about 15 min walking) and to the Waseda university district. We even walked a couple of times from the Takadanobaba station area - ca 30 min. The staff are very helpful and sincerely kind. The decor is luxurious even if... More
