Hotel Ryumeikan Ochanomizu Honten

What kind of hotel is Hotel Ryumeikan Ochanomizu Honten?

This is a small modern Japanese-style hotel in Tokyo.  There are 9 rooms only.  Everything, such as interior, decorations, staff, and hospitality, etc., is sophisticated.  On top of that, the property has great value for money if compared to others in Tokyo. 

If you are looking for modern ryokan-style accommodations in Tokyo, I would recommend it.  Perhaps, if you get tired of typical luxury 5-star hotels in Tokyo, you may want to stay here.

On the other hand, if you expect magnificent Tokyo city views from your room, this is not for you.  All rooms are located on 2F.  Also, there is no swimming pool, no communal bath, no bar, or no spa, etc.  If you expect a variety of amenities, this is not for you.

The ambiance is serene, tranquil, and relaxed.  The property would be great for solo travelers, business persons, or couples.  *A minimum age requirement of 13 applies 

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, the hotel is located near Asakusa, Akihabara, Tsukiji, Ueno, Tokyo Station, etc.  The location would be perfect if you explore Tokyo City.  Refer to the info.

It takes 3min on foot from Hijiribashi Exit of JR Ochanomizu Station.

Alternatively, it takes 1min on foot from B3a Exit with an elevator of Shin-Ochanomizu Station, Awajicho Station, and Ogawamachi Station.  If you have lots of luggage, you should use Shin-Ochanomizu Sta., Awajicho Sta., or Ogawamachi Sta.  Because there is no lift in JR Ochanomizu Station.

FYI, it takes 40min by train from Haneda Airport and costs JPY660 per adult.  It takes 45-60min by taxi from Haneda Airport, and costs around JPY8,000.

*Please note that there is a possibility of traffic jams during rush hours.  You should avoid using a taxi during weekday rush hours in Tokyo.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend a corner room.  The room is spacious, user-friendly, and functional.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  The housekeeping was excellent. 

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, bathrobes, yukatas, a coffee machine with capsules, welcome sweets, a complimentary mini-bar including beer, and a Japanese tea set, etc.  There were MIKIMOTO skincare products in our bathroom.  You can travel light.  The free Wifi reception was great.  Also, a DVD player, a Blu-ray, a CD player were placed in our room.  Turn-down service is available.  A free smartphone is available.  Room service is available between 7:00 and 26:00.  There are some convenience stores nearby.

How about In-house Facilities?

This is an almost universal design.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring someone with weak legs, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they arrange a room near the lift.

Then there is a small cozy library on 2F.  You can chill out here while having coffee.  Also, I noticed that there was a laundromat.

How about meals?

I would recommend having breakfast at the restaurant on 1F.  The Japanese restaurant would be the best around there.  Overall, the food is sophisticated.  If you are a gourmet, you would be happy.  There are many unique dishes using Matcha on the menu.  On top of that, the restaurant has great cost performance, especially breakfast.  The ambiance is very cozy.  Alternatively, you can request room service.  There are some dishes on the menu for meals.

Then, if you have lunch or dinner here, you should book a table in advance.  The restaurant is very popular among the locals.  It will be crowded with office workers on weekdays as the location is close to the business district.

My impressions

The most important I would like to highlight is the staff here is sophisticated, helpful, and gracious.  They are the loveliest group.  Their hospitality is as good as a 5-star hotel.  You can experience signature Japanese hospitality with a personal touch.  Also, they are informative.  If this is your first visit to Tokyo, you should ask them about recommended spots, shops, restaurants, etc.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Hotel Ryumeikan Ochanomizu Honten from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Agoda
