I always travel on a budget and for the accommodation, I usually look for one that is near the train station, offers a decent sleep, near restaurants, and a usable bathroom. Empire Shinjuku has it all. I didn't have high expectation for this hotel due to its price; all I can say is that I had my money's worth. They... More

The hotel is excellent when it comes to value for money and location. It is very near the train station, McDonalds, 7-11 and cheap restaurants. The room we got was huge and spacious. It had extra beds. We were only 3 but the room is good for 5. The bad side is the bathroom looks old and very small, you... More

The hotel is just 5min walk from the JR station. The hotel has a nice restuarant at ground level , otherwise, you may explore for more optional around the premises. The only thing I don't like about this hotel is the walk into the alley from the station - is pretty dark at night though. No kettle in the room... More

But bathroom is very small with the toilet bowl just 1 step next to the washing basin and bath tub... For taller person, he / she might have limited movement space.. Besides, shampoo, shower gel, facial gel, body lotion, tooth... More

I've been Tokyo last week and I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights. The hotel located close to the Shin-Okubo station (Yamanote Line next to the Shinjuku Station) just 5 mins walk from the hotel to the station. I stayed in the triple room with two of my friends. Of course this hotel is just a budget... More

Hello, I've been here last April. This is my review. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from ShinOkubo Station. For muslims, you don't need to worry about food because in that area, you can easily find kebab & Indonesian restaurant. There are drug stores, conbini nearby. They hotel also has it's own bar. So you don't have to worry.... More

Location was good still a 15 minute walk from centre of Shinjuku though but close to shin okubo station on the jr yamanote line. Free WiFi throughout the hotel was a plus. Hotel rooms are small even for japan with paper thin walls. We could hear people next door and on the level above us. Bathroom was quite terrible. It... More

They have the best location ever! Only 5 minutes walk to Shin Okubo Station. It is the cheapest hotel in Tokyo I can find at this moment. As a budget hotel they did not provide any service. Some of the staff did not bother to smile to you at all when u passing by or return back to hotel. The... More
