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

The hotel is offers value for money for the budget traveller as it is conveniently located to both the Yamanote (Green) and Chuo (Yellow) rail lines. It is also within walking distance to Shinjuku central about 10minutes. Free Wi-Fi at every floors which is fast and stable, also there is a desktop terminal at the lobby that is free for... More

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

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.
