The Rihga Royal does European opulence in a manner which Europe has largely forgotten. It has a stunning lobby with immense plate-glass windows giving straight onto the Otuma garden; it is decorated throughout with good reproductions of French baroque and rococo art; its breakfast buffet brings together the best of Japanese and Western cuisine; its bedrooms come with elegant nightshirts...

Nice hotel but was really annoyed a few times. Swimming pool and spa wasn't open at all(I stayed for 4 nights). Also on 2 different nights we wanted to have some drinks in the bar but were told that we couldn't as there was no room for us. That is not normal or right. A disgrace! Had breakfast once and...

We were satisfied with our 5 night stay here especially for the price. The hotel had a sophisticated decor that reminded me of the hotel that inspired Disney World's (Orlando) Tower of Terror (without the cobwebs and all around gloomy vibe). The attendants were very nice and our room was very spacious. We only found a handful of channels on...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
