11 of us spent 4 nights in this hotel in January. We had some challenges at check-in getting the rooms we had booked. After several conversations we managed to get a triple room, two twins and two semi-doubles. All rooms smelt of smoke - but opening the window helped this a little. We also needed the window open to sleep... More

I stayed at Hotel Sunlite Shinjuku for just one night. The hotel is in a great location, easy walking distance from Shinjuku station (if you can find the right exit!), and of course the fabulous Golden Gai. The room was small, but I was expecting that. The thing I wasn't expecting was the smell of the stale cigarettes, or the... More

It was good value for money! The rooms are v compact and small but the location is amazing and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful and most importantly could speak in english. The breakfast was good.

Directions from Shinjuku Station main entrance between Lumine and Lumine 2 turn left and walk past Lumine 2 until you get to Forever 21 then turn left and... More

Stayed there last 01 Oct 2014 till 09 Oct 2014 at room 514. I had a great stay there and it's only 7300 Yen which is very cheap considering the hotel is within the Shinjuku area and along Meiji Dori. It's only 15 minutes walking distance to Aikikai Hombu Dojo and a few minutes away from the subways, restaurants and... More

The reason to stay here is really good location - in the heart of Shinjuku area which is one of the best to stay when you're in Tokyo. Always lively, lots and lots of shops and eat spots around. Also just 2 minutes away from metro entrance and 10-15 min from Shinjuku train station - you can get here straight... More

A nice basic hotel - I was very comfortable during my week's stay. My single room had a small double bed in it, which was very comfortable. Internet using the supplied ethernet cable was fast and included. TV was limited to local japanese channels, which was a shame, but there was the occasional english language programme while I was awake... More
