The hotel was in small street, but near Korean restaurants. It had 2 types rooms, modern and japanese. Location was also close to station, just walk 10-15 minutes. I didn't like the bathroom because very small and old fashioned compare to other hotel in Tokyo.

Hotel Empire has great location. If you are looking for a cheap hotel close to Shinjuku and get the right price, book it. If you are staying over a longer period of time this is a great option if you don't care to much about high standard. They give you new towels everyday but changing your bed sheets is not... More

My brother and I stayed at this hotel for nine nights on our trip to Tokyo. This hotel is great! Reception was super polite and spoke very good English, they asked us if this was our first trip to Japan (it was) and gave us a few guidebooks to help us get around Tokyo. The location is AMAZING, there is... More

Value for money accommodation, 5 min walk from Okubo or Shinokubo stations (right in the middle of both). 10 min walk to Korea town and Kabuchiko area. Plenty of Thai, Korean and ramen places nearby. Has a nice bar/café/restaurant at the base of the hotel. Not a lot of shopping or sightseeing unless you walk down to Kabuchiko. The front... More

The family room was ok though not much space to walk around. The bathroom was a little cramped and there were no cabinets to stow our clothes. The hotel was a short walk from the shin-okubo station so it was fairly accessible.

Great room for 4 persons as the Family room on the ground floor is big enough which consist of 2 separate room with one bath and toilet. Good location as the hotel is near to 2 different lines of JR stations. However, they will not change your bedsheet or pillow cover during your stay even it has became dirty. Staffs... 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.
