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

Some of the staff did not bother to smile to you at all when u passing by or return back to hotel. The... More

Their location is great, it's less than 5 mins walk from Shin-Okubo sta and surrounded with restaurants. The room is acceptable compare to the price but their bathroom must be renovated. This hotel has no service to send your luggage to the airport but there is a branch of Yamato Transport near this place you can go there for sending... More

I have travelled in japan many times and stayed in many budget hotels, but this is the absolutely worst I've ever stayed at. Me and a friend had a twin room while another friend had a single. The room size isn't bad for a budget hotel in Tokyo. It's cheap for being so close to Shinjuku and it's close to... More
