Not to be confused with Best Western Hotel which is also in Shinjuku area. Stayed here with a friend for 3 days and 2 nights. The place was kinda retro. Like a Japanese 80s movie. But it is clean. Front desk people are nice. They will let you check your belongings while waiting for check-in time so you can roam... More

If you need a cheap Japanese room in Tokyo that is conveniently close to one of the JR stations, then Best Hotel is a logical option. It is a short walk away from the JR Shin-Okubo station and one station away from Shinjuku. If you have sturdy legs, you can even walk to Kabukicho and JR Shinjuku East entrance. Shin-Okubo... More

My room was clean when I walked in. In fact, the toilet had one of those paper ribbons wrapped around the toilet cover that said "sanitized for your need" or something like that which was surprising given all the negative comments about this hotel. I also wanted to address a lot of other negative comments about this hotel. Kabukicho is... More

We went there 12 days 20 days ago... the location is great next the Shinokubo station, restaurants, seven elevens and a few Konbinis stores. The bad point is... there is not clean service at all... they will remove the dirty towels everyday but not the bed sheets so we stayed 2 weeks with the same bed clothes. The positive point... More

We were moved to this hotel upon arriving at the Hotel Empire also in Shijuku as the Empire was having water problems. its a very basic place and not recommended for those of you who want modern cleanliness. if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep and enjoy the local nightlife, its acceptable.

The hotel is about 3 blocks away from the Shin Okubo JR line. Room was clean, nice size. i got the double room and the bed was a decent size. i was expecting smaller so it was above my expectations. Hotel staff was very polite and spoke English. It was as a little hard to find at first as it... More

This hotel was one of the cheapest I found in Tokyo. It's located in Shin Okubu (Korea Town), within walking distance from Shinjuku and on a convenient rail line. The area is great for Korean food, with amazing chicken houses in particular. Unfortunately it's also a red-light district, but it did not feel at all dangerous. The hotel itself was... More

Nearby Shin Okubo JR Line and Kabukicho, walking distance to East Entrance of Shinjuku Station. This area is just like little korea full with korean restaurant. You will have to walk a further far to Kabukicho if you want to try the Japanese food. The room is a basis room attached with a bathroom and small toilet. The elevator of... More

Clean and nearby to Shin Okubo J-Line. The area is also known as Little Korea due to its concentration of many Korean bistros and people living in this area. Bed was comfy and the toilet was specky clean. Receptionist does not speak English so a bit hardy for certain English-speaking tourists. Only downside will be the loitering of prostitutes around...

I stayed here for a week. It was always clean, and had a great location for my trip, near the 7-Bank (for cash) and the train station. The owners were very kind. The rooms are tiny, but that's normal for Tokyo. We were able to fit two Americans into a room comfortably.
