Everything is excellent about this place and I mean everything. I don't give 5 stars unless it's above and beyond expectations and considering so many people rate this hotel so highly, I expected to be treated like an Imperial King guy. And so I was. Fantastic service from the staff included efficient communication, print outs of our booked restaurants through...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 January 2017 via mobile

In a city where hospitality is legendary, this hotel really stands out. It's small and very charming--only a dozen rooms or so-- but the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. I would describe it as modern ryoken--it's got the tatami, wood and paper screens, Japanese style beds--but is also accessible to those of us accustomed to Western style hotels. Gorgeous...

I debated writing this review: this is clearly a hidden gem, and with only 9 rooms, I would probably not be able to stay there if it got too popular... This is truly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. In no particular order: - Charming rooms, well designed with tasteful Japanese flair. They are huge by...

I agonized for months about where to stay in Tokyo. My husband and 2 boys, ages 13 and 15, stayed at The Hotel Ryumeikan for a full week. We were not disappointed at all about this hotel! Only 9 rooms means exceptional service. In a city as gigantic as Tokyo, you need to have exceptional service. If we had stayed...

We were pampered for three nights at this delightful ryokan. We absolutely loved the experience. Even before checking in, email correspondence with Satomi from the service team was always prompt and there was nothing the hotel staff wouldn't do to assist making our stay amazing.

Found this small boutique hotel totally by chance when browsing the hotels in Tokyo. Originally was looking for a decent hotel with good room size, location, and overall comfort but something a little more Japanese stye rather than standard modern decor. Ryumeikan Ochanomizu Hokan came up and I was attracted by the unique traditional Japanese room furnishing. With the price...
