โรงแรมนี้ดูหรูหราพอประมาณ ราคาก็ไม่แพงมากนัก ห้องพักก็สะอาดและที่สำคัญแม่บ้านบริการดีมาก พนักงานที่คอยดูแลกระเป๋าก็รับฝากและให้ความช่วยเหลือเป็นอย่างดี เสียอย่างเดียวไม่มีคนช่วยยกกระเป๋าเข้าห้องพัก เขาไปส่งเราที่ลิฟต์อย่างเดียว อาหารเช้าก็หลากหลาย และโรงแรมมีบริการ Shuttle Bus ไปสถานี Takadanobaba รอบสุดท้ายกลับจากสถานีคือ 21:40 น. ซึ่งสะดวกมากเลยทีเดียว I have stayed there for 3 nights in the room 615, really appreciate the service of Housekeeping and The men at Reception who always give a hand to help even they know that I'm just student who come to join the event at Waseda...

This hotel located next to Waseda is luxurious and offers a very high standard of service. Breakfast offers a range of Asian and European cuisines and is efficiently managed. The rooms are "European" in style but very comfortable if modest in size by Western standards.

We stayed here in a twin bedroom for a couple nights. Loved the decor and the breakfast - the room was surprisingly spacious and every facility you would expect at this price point was available. On our last day, the staff was kind enough to receive a package we ordered online even after we checked out. The property is also... More

The hotel itself is grand and has a nice older style feel about it, but doesn't feel dirty. We stayed in the suite with our 3 children. It's far from the action, so the shuttle bus was a lifesaver. The buffet breakfast was not very extensive, but quite tasty and classy. We only had it once in our 3 days... More

Lovely big hotel - we had a suite so could sleep 2 kids in the lounge area. Cost was £650 for 3 night which was reasonable. BUT breakfast would have been another £60 for all 4 of us and using the swimming pool was also £60 ish - which came as a shock?! This hotel might be in the Shinjuku... More

Nice, clean, impressive lobby and rooms. Staff was very helpful, a few of them even spoke English. Decent location, only a ten minute walk to the Shinjuku center and station. No nearby restaurants apart from a tiny takeaway joint. All in all a decent hotel, made my stay in Tokyo a pleasant one! A nice refuge from all the crazy... More

We stayed in the junior suite for 8 days & I was pleasantly surprised at the size of suite fitting all 4 of us. The hotel is slightly out of the Shinjuku CBD, but there is a hotel shuttle bus service that takes only 10 mins to Takadanobaba station which is 3 stops of Shinjuku CBD station. The hotel backs...

In the University district of Waseda, just over five min walk from the subway, this hotel offers excellent value for money. It's not in the beating, neon heart of livelier districts of Tokyo but we felt like this gave us a more city-dweller view of Japan's capital while still being a metro ride from anywhere we wanted to be.

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
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.
