Stayed in room 318, Jan 10 to 15th, 2014 for the first time and found it to be fantastic for what we wanted from a Tokyo room. Yes its old and 80's looking, yes the staff don't know a lot of English, and yes they like it when you attempt to use your own poor Japanese skills. They did a... More

We stayed at Hotel City Lonestar in November 2013 for the second time. It was the second time staying here in 2013 and we have several reasons for returning. The price is very reasonable for the area, it's very close to the subway station, restaurants, and of course shopping. The rooms are very small, but clean and are equipped with... More

I stayed here after flying from the UK on an overnight flight. The staff were helpful and the room was clean, although a little dilapidated. I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget, and it is in a good location in close proximity to the subway and the main Shinjuku station.

Fortunately I had to spend only one night in this hotel. Rooms are very small and not very clean. Lobby is small and rather ugly. Staff is strange and not very helpful. There is no wifi in room and wifi at the lobby had a time limit. Manual air-conditioner is loud, not effective and troublesome to change settings. Toilet and... More

This hotel is across the street from the Shinjuku-Sanchome subway station, but about a 15 minute walk from Shinjuku Station. Remember that when you are looking for a bus back to the airport-you might want to take a taxi to the bus stop. Otherwise it's a great spot with a really good Thai restaurant next door and fun bars as... More

It was my first time in Tokyo and was my first time in small rooms like this, but priority setting was for best location with not as high budget as you get a much smaller room here especially in Tokyo. Breakfast is not the reason to come here but friendliness and location in Shinjuku-nichome where I could go home by... More

Very close to the action in Shinjuku. Great for heading out, not so great when you are awakened at 2:00 a.m. by the trash men. This is a compact hotel, with tight rooms. Our twin double could hardly fit our luggage, and the bathroom was tiny. Lots of smoking rooms in Japan and we landed in one. Complimentary coffee and... More

I stayed there last February for my first time in Tokyo. I had a lot of trouble finding the hotel from the train station and even Japanese people had a hard time helping me, but at last a taxi driver was able to drive me there. The front desk guy who was there when I arrived was very nice and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a standard double room. Excellent location in busy Shinjuku area with lots of shopping, bars and restaurants to choose from. Wrecked from overnight travelling we got a taxi from the train station (cost around 1000 yen) but on the day we were leaving walked back to the station in about 15mins. Metro station is... More

I had 2 nights there before, it's located a bit far away from Shinjuku JR Station (15-20mins walk) and the hotel is not easy to find (I asked local police but almost no one knows about it). Metal room door is kind of annoying when someone is closing it nearby (noisy), the room is very small but I should expect... More
