NOTE: pillows in Japan are made of husks, so if this is uncomfortable bring a regular pillow. The hotel was a bit dated but only in comparison to the rest of the Japanese hotels I got to after.

This hotel is a bit far away from the Shinjuku station. The room was clean and I did not miss anything. Wifi worked like a charm. It looked a bit expensive to me, but I stayed there from Saturday to Sunday, so I guess it was an OK price.

Nice hotel, typical-size for a Japanese hotel. It's quite a walk from Shinjuku JR, so keep that in mind if you're a JR-exclusive traveller. Plenty of nightlife around the hotel (it is Shinjuku) so we were never bored.

This hotel is one of the more inexpensive hotels in the area. Because of that, I didn't have much expectation. The building and the rooms are old. The lobby men know English enough to communicate about basic things. Every time you leave the building, you need to turn in your key, and you get it back when you return. They... More

Overall Hotel Sunlite was good We had buffet breakfast which we liked The rooms were very basic but were clean and had everything you needed. The staff were polite spoke a little english and were helpful when I needed help confirming a tour. The hotel is close to transport and not far from the centre of shinjuku. I would recommend...

Based on other trip advisor reviews I was prepared for the worst. However, when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised - though I'm not sure if that is because my expectations were so low to start with. The bathroom admittedly did smell a bit like smoke, which was kind of annoying. But the room was larger than I imagine (there... More

This place is situated right in the soul of shinjuku. Yes it looks a little dated and the view from the room isn't great but the room itself was both ample in space (for 2) and clean, comfortable and well equipped. It's price is great for where it is and the staff were helpful. Also the bakery next door was... More

This hotel is a little walk away from where you'd arrive on trains/metro at Shinjuku station, therefore being prepared with a map and sense of where you need to head is helpful. It is located on a relatively small side street, which helps make it a little quieter than might be expected. The hotel is actually two hotels so at... More

The rooms are a bit larger than normal ones I have found in Tokyo but are basic and old fashioned. No coffee in rooms only green tea which is a let down but ok. Nothing I would complain about but there are better hotels in the vacinity.

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.
