I found this place a little tricky to find as people have posted reviews to reach this hotel from the main Shinjiku station. Follow this as you wont get lost. Take the subway to Shinjuku-sanchōme, not the main Shinjuku, follow the C8 exit and look left, if you just take the immediate road on your left you can see the... More

Nice hotel room, nice staff, but very little english spoken. Hotel room was one of the nicer ones I stayed in Japan. A bit confusing to find, but convenient once you find it. Buffet breakfast available with western style food (which is great if you get sick of eating fish for breakfast). Very modern hotel. I would go back.

I stayed at this hotel for a few nights with my friend. We had the Super Single room, which really is a slightly bigger single bed. But we managed to have a good rest. Both of us had 2 large suitcases, so we had to take turns when we wanted to open our suitcases. The bathroom is also very small... More

Stayed here while travelling to a few destinations with my boyfriend. Rooms are really small, just enough room for double bed and a bathroom but it's Tokyo so main thing was its clean, nice location and staff were friendly and spoke English!

Rooms are small. Staff is ok but not very helpful. Good location for Tokyo and relatively cheap for Japan. Ok for a few nights. Smells of tobacco even on non smoking floors. All rooms have integrated bathrooms..and yes the toilets have buttons all over the place and in Japanese so pack a dictionary or have someone explain how it works... More

2nd time back to this hotel and this time with my wife and 16mths old baby. Stayed in a twin room, the 2nd bed was big enough for my wife and baby. Value for money hotel. Room is small with very little walkway but service of the staff makes up for it. We were arrived at the hotel early hence... More

My boyfriend and I recently travelled to Japan (in September) and we were really disappointed by this hotel. We originally were booked for 4 days, but called to cancel our reservations, due to the poor conditions of the hotel. It is dark, dingy and extremely small (even for Japanese standards). The bedding was dirty upon arrival, the bathroom had black... More

The hotel is located about 1 min walk from the metro exit, which the underground is connected to department stores like 0101 and Isetan. There are many restaurants by walking across to shinjuku sanchome area. Staff can speak simple English which is sufficient for general assistance, and they are very attentive to clients. Rooms are clean as well. They offer... More

I stayed at Lonestar hotel for six nights on my first ever visit to Tokyo. I had picked it because of its convenient location in Shinjuku right next to a Metro stop, and because of the affordable nightly rate. I was not disappointed. The room was small but intelligently designed and furnished. There was even a small fridge in it.... More

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
