    Standard cheap hotel more for business customers

    Pretty standard for the cheaper hotels we’ve stayed in - we’ve been in Japan for 6 weeks, so stayed in quite a few! It’s very dated, but that’s normal for the cheaper hotels. The bed was too small for us both - it was a large single for 2 people, but not really sufficient for 2 so neither of us slept very well. Otherwise the bed was comfortable. I think this is more of a business hotel - if you are looking for luxury this is not the place for you! But if you are only using the place to sleep in and spend the day out and about, it’s fine. The reception area is large with an area to sit around in. Staff were very helpful and friendly and allowed us to leave our bags there for the day before checking in - this seems normal for most hotels thankfully since check in times are quite late - usually 3pm. We wouldn’t stay here again, but good enough for a night if you spend the day out and about.

    Really great hotel

    So hotel was really amazing. The room was really clean. The staff were amazing, they were able to understand me and were able to help me. The area is really close to food and shops, along with tourist attractions. Really amazing experience.

    Amazing

    This hotel is easily the best value-for-money I've had in a while. I think they recently renovated the hotel so it looks very nice with a lot of wood. My room smelt very new, was very big with two beds, and had a couple of chairs. Very clean. Beds and the *pillow* were sooo comfortable - best sleep in a while! Reception area also cozy, connected with a cafe next door, very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

    If you need a good bed, Riverside may not be right for you. I felt like I was trying to sleep on metal wires coated in thin material. Two nights without sleep, I will not stay here again. Great location, view, and the room was otherwise good. Staff are minimally helpful.

    Good location and value

    Booked a ‘semi double’ room so was of course expecting a small bed, basically a single bed, but room itself was very small as well. Rooms are a little bit old but for the price and location, excellent value for money.

    仕事の関係だったので安いホテルを探してました。予想通りと言う表現が合ってるかは分かりませんが、可もなく不可もなくゆっくりと滞在させて頂きました。只、繁華街までの距離は歩いて行ける立地だったので利用は今後もしやすいかと思います。
