We stayed here for a last few nights before we came back home and we found it to be in a good location with small restaurants nearby and the train station is quite close.
The only downfall is that the train station is so close that it is quite noisy.
We had a great stay here. First the location is superb, place is quiet and very near the Ryogoku Sobu line station, just 1 minute walk! There are restaurants and convenience store nearby.
Room we had is small (economy studio room) and on the older wing of the hitel but all is ok…
Did a long stay with a small-size group. Rooms are as expected for budget Japan business hotel, sufficient for single traveler. Nice quiet location and can see sumo wrestler walking around. Some rooms have views of sumo stadium and Sky Tree but also face above ground train. The w…
We stayed here on a school trip from Toronto. The staff were friendly and the breakfast buffet had a big variety of food! Right next to the sumo temple, a beautiful park, small quaint bars and the subway/JR Line. This was my first time staying in Tokyo and it was a good location.…
This was my first trip to Japan. The Ryogoku Pearl Hotel is the only Tokyo hotel I've ever stayed at, so I can only review it in that context. I was also part of a school tour, so I can't speak to the cost of staying.

"Some rooms face sumo stadium and Sky Tree and trains, some rooms face another building."
"No one in my group mentioned noise issues but maybe ask for a room that faces the river. And ask for an extra blanket if you need one."
"The subway line gives noisy room stay on a lower floor away from the subway line"
"Front corner rooms or close to the corner rooms facing the sumo arena are best. Room 819 ("standard twin") is excellent. Avoid rooms in the back (hotel backs up to train tracks and also an expressway) and also try to avoid rooms on the side of the hotel that faces the train tracks."
"Avoid rooms close to the trains and elevators/lifts."
