Checked into this hotel for 3 nights in January. Rooms were super clean and the amenities were plentiful. The location was close to Tokyo station. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Firstly, the hotel is really excellent from any aspects :- Design, rooms, foods, service, location etc. Though it was my first visit to the hotel, I felt it very homely and thanks to the friendly behaviour of the staffs! I would love to be there soon!

We enjoyed our stay and got a really good rate online - so very good value!

Positives
- Very close to Tokyo Station: we arrived after dark and found it easily - about a 3 min walk.
- Many supermarkets, restaurants and department stores very nearby.
- Convenience: We walked to Ginza in 10 minutes most days. Easy to take metro anywhere!
- Shower didn't look that much... but had amazing water pressure.
- Clean.
- Staff friendly and helpful.

Negatives
- Small rooms - but that is the same as most places in Tokyo

We would stay again.

The Hotel Ryumeikan is the perfect base for your Tokyo visit. It is conveniently located close to Nihonbashi, the Imperial Palace and grounds, the Ginza shopping and theater district, and Tokyo Station where you can get many local subway trains as well as the Shinkansen high speed national train system. Dozens of taxis are lined up waiting to take you anywhere in the city or beyond.

This review is based on our 3 day stay at Hotel Ryumeikand in a standard twin, non-smoking room in November 2011.

The spacious rooms at the Ryumeikan are decorated in a simple but elegant style and have stunning city views. The beds are heavenly with large, soft pillows and smooth, soft linen. The rooms are very private and quiet. Heavy curtains keep out early morning light but glide back to show a floor to ceiling view of vibrant Tokyo. There is a large desk and ample closet and bureau space. A large chaise longue by the windows give the room the feel of a suite. Everywhere in Japan hotel guests are provided with night wear. At the Ryumeikan, the wonderful soft cotton pajamas and yukatas are especially comfortable.

The bath is well appointed with plenty of room for toiletries, many bath amenities and luxurious towels. For those guests planning a longer stay, the hotel provides excellent, clean and inexpensive laundry facilities on every floor. In addition, high speed internet access is free.

The staff at the hotel is fluent in English and are very helpful. Because we had two large suitcases, the staff quickly arranged for a second luggage rack. They helped us with dinner reservations, tickets for the Kabuki Theater, and helped us figure out how best to get to Haneda Airport for the domestic flight we were taking as part of our visit to Japan. In our experience, most cab drivers speak only Japanese. If you are concerned about telling the driver your destination, the hotel staff will arrange for a taxi and provide you with a return address card which can be very helpful.

In passing, I would like to mention that we traveled to Japan on Japan Airlines (JAL) because they offer foreign visitors a special "yokoso fare" on up to five domestic flights. While the trains are a wonderful way to travel while in Japan, the yokoso fare is more economical and faster if you plan to travel longer distances.

And two final tips: When attending the Kabuki, be sure to pack a picnic to enjoy during the long intermission. It is the customary thing to do! Make it a special bento or some wonderful bread, cheese, fruit and wine purchased at the bustling but sophisticated food markets in the basement levels of Ginza departments stores like Mitsukoshi or Matsuya. Mitsukoshi also has a branch very close to the Ryumeikan in Nihonbashi. If you arrive in time for the 10 AM opening of this store, you can watch the store staff perform their traditional store opening and special greeting. American tourists will be amazed by the large number of store employees who are friendly and helpful and eager to provide first rate customer service.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We had a double room which was perfect. The hotel was very close to Tokyo station, only a 3 minute walk. This meant that it was the perfect base for exploring Japan by rail. The staff were very friendly and helpful, providing us with maps and suggested itineraries of different areas, and even some hot towels when we arrived to check in. We didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment on that. The room was spotless, had a fridge and the most bathroom ammenity packs I have seen anywhere. I would not hesitate in staying at this hotel again. There is a 24 hour convenience store on the same block as the hotel which is good if you just need a quick snack.
