In traveling to Tokyo I knew that I wanted to stay somewhere slightly traditional, and had searched for Ryokans in the city. Hotel Ryumeikan Ochanomizu Honten proved to be the perfect mix of traditional with modern amenities.

The rooms were extremely spacious compared to other hotels in the city, and a great value for the amount of space you get. The service was impeccable and very personal, as there are only 9 rooms throughout the entire hotel -- which I was informed dates back to 1899! Upon check in, someone guided us to our room and gave us a very thorough tour- explaining every amenity. The Library / Tea Room can't be missed!

Of course I have to mention the bath tub, as well. Probably the defining feature of the hotel, every room features a bath tub hand crafted by artisans using special Shigaraki earthenware. Pictures don't do it justice-- it's quite large, big enough to comfortably float around in.

The traditional Japanese breakfast was also a treat, something I wasn't easily able to find at restaurants. And the staff had left out yukatas (casual kimonos) to wear around the room, a perfect touch.

Room Tip: We thoroughly enjoyed our corner room

We are frequent travelers and have seen many good hotels traveling the world, but this hotel is outstanding with an amazing hospitality, best in class service and a perfectly designed guest room. There was really nothing we could recommend to improve since its top notch.

We stayed here two nights- May 13-14, 2018. It is a small, boutique hotel, and the staff makes you feel like family while maintaining the highest level of professionalism. On our first afternoon, they booked us a fabulous tempura meal, and handed us umbrellas on our way out. A few minutes after we left the hotel, it rained- what amazing service!!! The rooms are GORGEOUS, and there is a lovely library with books in English and Japanese, tea and coffee, and a lovely view. There are laundry facilities as well, and they can offer you a lovely en-suite breakfast. When we left, they assisted us with a taxi and suggested we take a train to the airport. We'd been planning to take the subway, which would have required hauling our luggage on and off as well as the usual misery of subway travel to an airport. The taxi and train were so much more peaceful, and faster too! I really cannot recommend this hotel more highly- one of the best experiences we've ever had.

This has to be one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. Arriving from the long travel and first visit to Tokyo this was heaven- greeted and served tea and biscuits. Everything explained, walked to your room (only 9, all named on the second floor) and what a room. Entry area, bedroom and separate sitting lounge on Tatami and a marvellous bathroom with the large oval ceramic bath. Bar stocked each day and a library for additional relaxation and viewing. The rooms are spacious and beautifully presented. Loved the Yakatas (bathrobes) and the breakfasts were outstanding (large however) and everything presented so carefully. Staff downstairs super helpful, interested and accessible. Nothing too much trouble. Enjoyed the "green tea" and in room nespresso. The hotel doesn't look much from the street and its in a business building but its irrelevant to the experience. The area actually is very well suited to travel anywhere as it has a local JR station but the metro is probably more user friendly and you can connect to the maranouchi line, chiyoda line and easily walk to Akihabara on the JR Yamanote line (10 minutes). There are loads of local restaurants and an interesting new development in the old rail bridge nearby with shops and restaurants. We loved this hotel and couldn't wait to go back to it each day. It has its own restaurant which we found excellent for those days you just didn't want to go out at night. No faults here, just excellence, charm and hospitality pus large rooms lacking for nothing (and those japanese toilets, is there anything they cant do? we love Mr Toto!). Did we mention the free phone you get in the room you can take out with you and use to dial anywhere, use for maps and information and just like your own mobile (cellphone). Had a few quirks in use but was great to use in room or on the days outings!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent- we stayed at the back off the street side- super quiet.
