Nice hotel. Very nice rooms and great bathrooms The only down side to me was location. I would have preferred a hotel in the center of Shinjuku. Otherwise great staff rooms and service

Concierge was very sweet and made sure to take care of our every need and more. The entirety of the hotel was aesthetically pleasing and very clean and we found decoration for both the hotel itself and the shuttle quite lovely. Food was delicious, especially at the garden lounge. The back garden was very beautiful and peaceful. Provided transportation was convenient, however we do wish that there was a provided shuttle to Tokyo Disney, so we wouldn’t have to find a new hotel that had it available. But overall, 10/10.

Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel and rooms. The only negative is the location. It’s secluded and away from restaurants and hot spots of Tokyo.

Expensive meals in hotel. Hard beds considering we booked junior sweet and worst is they wanted to charge $35 AU each day to use the swimming pool. What a joke.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at RIHGA ROYAL HOTEL TOKYO. Thank you for your housekeeping team for not only cleaning and making up our beds but also changing the beds with FRESH, CLEAN LINENS AND BEDDINGS and supplying us with toiletries EVERYDAY. The rooms are very spacious. We've always enjoyed the FREE 2 bottled water everyday! We really felt royalty during our stay. The beds are firm and really comfortable and always have a good night sleep. Nice peaceful and quiet location too. The buffet breakfast at Dining Ferio was amazing! A lot of variety of delicious food, fresh fruits, drinks (coffee, milk, fruit juices). Free breakfast came with our room reservation which was a plus - booked 2 rooms for 7 nights stay. It was amazing! The free hotel shuttle bus that takes us to Takadanobaba Station and back to hotel was a big help to go out shopping, dining or whatever you want to do. I would definetely stay back to this hotel again when back in Tokyo. Special mention to Kim at the reception for a smooth very late check-in. She even helped us with our luggages and made sure we get to our room. Highly recommend RIHGA ROYAL HOTEL TOKYO and all other Rihga Royal Hotels for your next comfortable stay. A+ EXCELLENT SERVICE. Exceeded my expectations. Hotel Lobby view is exceptional. The Tea Garden (located adjacent to the lobby) is also a nice place to sit, relax and unwind after a long day out. Thank you so much.
