Close to Waseda Uni so a feeling of space and views of greenery. Yipee. Be aware: there is an outbreak of Louis the 16th design in the whole place. I never really understood why this style was popular. Staff as excellent as only the Japanese can be. Very close to various eateries. Breakfast eye wateringly expensive but nice. Shuttle bus...

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel and we're made to feel very welcome by the excellent staff. The normal rooms are ok, nothing special but if you have a room at the back it has great views of the garden. The facilities in the room are good enough i.e. A kettle etc. The TV doesn't have any English...

We had a nice stay. They were able to accommodate a family of 4 in one room - many places couldn't. Had a nice view of a park right in back and the city. Nice big bathroom. 10 minute walk to the subway makes the location workable to see the whole city. Lots of good food in the area. There...

The hotel is spacious and the staff were very welcoming. They run a shuttle to the subway lines which connects you to anywhere in Tokyo. The Waseda district where the RIHGA is located has lots of great cafes and little shops as it is right next to the university. We had amazing coffee from a little place called Mojo's every...

We stayed here when we got back to Tokyo after our trip to Niseko. I'd booked the room weeksnin advance through trip advisor because there was a promo rate which was a good thing because when we got there , the going room rate was already twice what we had paid in advance. And i believe our stay was well...

This hotel is near the Waseda metro on the Tozai line (8mins walk). Large rooms with good standard amenities like a kettle, fridge, bathrobe, pyjamas(common in Japanese hotels). Has a nice bar. Prices in the hotel restaurant and tea room looked high. The Japanese garden is beautiful. There is access to a very nice gym, pool, bath however they cost...

We were apprehensive about our visit to RIHGA. Whilst we snagged a bargain price for our stay, we had read some Aussie blogs that said it was very far away. We stressed for no reason at all a we loved our stay. We caught the N'EX from Narita to Shinjuku and decided, as it was night time, to cab it...

Nice and stylish hotel. A little old fashion but in a grand way. A little out of the way but 5 mins walk to subway and 30 mins trip to downtown or crazy Shinjuku. Actually, nice a peaceful by comparison, best of both worlds 😁

Stayed for 4 nights with our 2 sons (11 and 7) in a junior suite. Separate room and sitting room with 2 extra beds for the boys. Well appointed and clean but the decor is a bit tired. Quiet room. Next to Waseda university and it was nice to be able to wonder around a quiet neighborhood with a lovely...

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
