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

Very close to Shinjuku Train station, clean hotel and their breakfast special is a great buy. When traveling to Japan you don't need to take sleep wear, toiletries, hairbrush. Every hotel provides it all.

Not very cosy but excellent location. Although we asked for a non-smoking room it clearly smelled of smoke. If you're not so fuzzy about things like that it was ok for the price we paid. Bathroom was quite cute though. Everything looked like it was melted together in the same color. Bathtub small but deep which was a fun experience... More

Stayed here on my last night. The hotel had friendly staff although the hotel needs updating. The room is very basic and had a spartan feel. It was fine for one night and I had a good night's sleep. I can't complain about the price. There is a subway entrance right across the street, so easy to get to places.

We stayed at the Hotel Sunlite for two nights. It is located in Tokyo's red-light district, but I never felt unsafe or like I was in a 'bad' area. The hotel rooms are very small, but fine for a couple of days. If you're on a budget and need somewhere to sleep, shower and chill out - this is a... More

We came to this hotel from Shinjuku station, and it took us ages to find it. Asked few people on the street but unfortunately they couldn't speak english. After a long walk (and got lost), finally we arrived at this hotel. Our room was ok. Clean but bit small. The bathroom was clean and also small. It took few mins... More

Depends on the location, the price is great. The receptionists are nice, but we are disappointed about the cleanliness of rooms even though we already changed 2 rooms. If you're just looking for a cheap place to sleep couple nights, consider this hotel, don't expect too much.

Probably the most normal-looking stay I had in a few months. Room and toilet are pretty small. It started to feel crowded for only 2 people. The place is far from trains but partner says it's a pretty good location already.

It takes around 15 minutes to walk from Shinjuku station to the hotel. and it's quite easy to find. If you need to consult the maps posted on some street corners on the way, be advised that "North" normally isn't "up" on the map. The "North-arrow" is indicated somewhere, and I've seen it pointing in a lot of different directions.... More
