Great location, 10 min walk from JR Shinjuku, Seibushijuku station, Shinokubo station, and shopping district. Plenty of restaurants nearby, a 7 eleven and a family mart convenience stores within 2 to 5 min walking distance. First day, the person at the front desk was really accommodating, normally hotels in Japan won’t let you check in earlier than designated check-in time... More

Mini apartment in one of the best district of Tokyo. 2 mins by walk from higashi shinjuku metro station and 15min from shinjuku and kabukicho. Fully furnished. Perfect for a few days... Just the bathroom was seriously TOO small, but still enough for a fast shower before going to sleep! Recommended!

Located in one of the most interesting area of Tokyo, the hotel is 10 min walk fro Shinjuku train station, close to the metro and you can find a lot of restaurants around to eat at a good price. The room was small but very clean and well equipped. Free WiFii, hairdryer, iron, microwave, fridge, coffee and tea etc. Very... More

We stayed at J Residence for 5 days in January 2014. The apartments are very good value for money and I thoroughly recommend staying here especially if you are two people on a budget. The apartments themselves are small but that is to be expected in Tokyo but not so small that you feel too cramped - also you probably... More

I was booking in a hurry, therefore didn't look into this place's detail. It was converted from apartment building to hotel. Pretty convenient location with access to Shinjuku in just couple mins of walking. Room is pretty clean with lots of amenities such as microwave and stove. If you like cook your own meal during stay, this is your place.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. This place is easy reach depending on the mode of transportation. If you are using the subway, then things get easier. The subway station for this place is Higashi-Shinjuku on the Oedo Line of Toei Line. If you are coming from the Shinjuku station, in that case you have to change at Tochomae Station... More

This is a great choice if you prefer to cook in Tokyo. With the kitchen you can save a lot of money on food. But for gourmet hunters like me, there are better options around. Cleanliness is not up to Japanese standard. So if you have allergy problems, be prepared.

I stayed there for three nights in September, arriving on the night Typhoon Man-yi descended upon Japan. Initially I had difficulty locating the place as the city of Tokyo was eerily quiet, with barely a dozen pedestrian walking around. The transport system was in locked-down except for a few ‘brave’ taxi drivers who could barely understand what I was saying.... More

It's in Higashi-Shinjuku (east Shinjuku district) well serviced by subways and buses. Higashi-shinjuku stn( exit A) is only 2 min walk fr this quiet place. Actually its behind E hotel. Though its tiny they provide a stove,fridge and utensils.I chose this pace particularly for its cooking facilities as eating out is extremely expensive, Besides a coin laundry is available too....

Stayed for two nights with a friend, very comfortable in a convenient location. You seriously can't beat this price for Tokyo, let alone Shinjuku. Close to the subway and all of the fun you dare to find in the neighbourhood. Highly recommended, would happily stay again.

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.
