Property was very upscale and clean. The discounted buffet breakfast was quality at a reasonable price. We traveled with two children and were thrown for a loop when we were told we had to pay around 1300 yen per person to use the pool. We were all looking forward to the pool and felt gouged. The hotel should present their costs in their advertising, since hotel pools are almost always free to use by guests.

Great view of Hiroshima.

It was easy to get to hotel with one street train. It had a great view of Hiroshima. Very close to the Peace Memorial Park and Museum. Local ferry to go to Miyajima island. Pool was only open to 11 and under till 6 pm which was a bit upsetting. Still the rooms were very spacious. We had 2 extra beds for the kids to sleep in and we still had room.

Convenient location to most things

Pros: Convenient location to almost everything I wanted to do in my one day here.
Location: Hiroshima Castle, Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, Hiroshima-yaki shops (food), food/shopping district.
It was my first time in Hiroshima, and I'm glad I picked the Rihga. It was simple to find from the Hiroshima station (arrived via Shinkansen) via bus. You could also reach the hotel via local subway. The hotel itself is situated along many bus routes that traverse the town. As I was there only for one day, it was convenient to access the shopping area due East as well as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. Further, it is only a 5-10 minute walk to Hiroshima castle. Accessing Miyajima (the island south) was the furthest, traversing via bus and local subway. If your goal is to visit Miyajima/Ikutsushima shrine and stay for the entire day at the island, perhaps this is not the hotel for you. However for everything else --access to the peace memorial and museum, Hiroshima castle, to food/shopping district, and quick 10-15 minute bus ride to Hiroshima station.

You will not regret!

Stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks on Japan's Golden Week Holiday. Staffs were friendly and the location is great. Everywhere was walking distance even starbucks! =). Rooms are big, clean and comfortable.(unlike the other hotels in japan where you can barely move if you have your suitecase open!) Will definitely stay in this hotel again in the future. Highly recommended!!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
EXTREMELY courteous and helpful staff. Pretty large room for Japan. Staff spoke English well. Couldn't ask for a better location. Take taxi from train station for luggage concerns, but after that it is so close to train, bus, subway. Easy walk to Peace Memorial.

Has all the amenities and is well located by the Peace Memorial Park

Pros: Close restaurants, close to sites

Easy to get to by taking a tram from the train station. Adjacent to a large shopping mall. Easy walk to the Peace Memorial and other sites. Western style hotel.

I loved this hotel

This hotel was a sight for sore eyes. it is located in the heart of Hiroshima. The beds were western in size and the staff speaks fluent english. It is extremely clean and the rates are great. You are within walking distance of the museum of tolerance, the atom bomb dome and peace park. The island of Miyajima is a short train and ferry ride away (less than 1 hour total travel time for both) and the Otori gate is there. On the island deer rome free and there was live music. All in all its a great place to stay.

Rihga Royal well-located, needs some updating

The Rihga Royal in Hiroshima has a great location - about 5 minutes from Peace Park and the A-Bomb dome. Its also very close to a street car line. You enter a very nice lobby, and the usual friendly service that is typical in Japanese hotels. However, the roomsleave something to be desired. The room was small. even by Japanese hotel standards. Also the carpet was very old and very stained. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room, but it smelled like someone had been smoking in it. We turned the air-conditioner and fan way up, and after a day out, the room smelled much better. The great location makes it a good place to stay, maybe we just got a bad room.
