This was the first hotel we went during our honeymoon in Japan. Quite surprised as the room is very small, we didn't look at the size (i.e 9 m^2). Anyway the staffs were very polite and nice and our room is lovely and clean. Although it is written that this hotel is only within 3 mins distance from station gate,... More

The hotel is located in Tokyo's gay district in Shinjuku. We were welcomed by extremely hospitable staff; however the room was nowhere near the usual Japanese standards we experienced. We only stayed a night because of fatigue, but the next day we called Hotels.com and they accommodated it a switch to another hotel at no cost. Why did we leave?... More

The second time staying here and everything remained just fine. The location is wonderful. Just on the exit of Shinjuku sanchome station About 15 mins from walk to Shinjuku Station. The room is small but it's extremely clean and cozy, but most of hotels in Tokyo in this budget range are small. Free breakfast provided but never had a chance... More

Walk out towards shinjuku city centre and about 5 minutes you can find many eateries and some shopping malls like Isetan is nearby. Room: Very small especially for a double room. Nowhere to place the luiggage and... More

Last two night in Japan. Room was great, i had a laugh at how small the bathtub was, but who has a bath! Close walk to Golden Gai and about a 15-20 min walk to Shinjuku Station. It was quiet and the wifi was great. You will have to leave your keys at the desk everytime you leave the hotel,... More

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

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.
